Red Rocks Amphitheatre

In the foothills West of Denver is a natural amphitheatre called Red Rocks, which hosts many events each summer. I've seen many rock concerts there, including bands like the Allman Brothers Band, R.E.M., Phish, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Young, The Police, Yes, Jethro Tull, and many others. It holds about 9,500 people and is considered to be one of the greatest outdoor concert venues in the country.

Here's one of the approaches to the amphitheater, as the path winds up and around the rocks.
And here's a view from that path.
Here's the view from the stage. It's hard to tell but the rocks are huge. Performers love playing here because they see something different than the typical arena view.
A couple of pictures of the main rock formations that surround the seating area.
And finally a view of the stage from the middle of the seating area. Downtown Denver is behind the ridges.
