Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater Tour

Begin this tour with a stop into one of Denver’s many fine retail marijuana shops. Relax and enjoy your limo ride and bud, all guests receive a box of gourmet munchies and smoking paraphernalia.

Some of the rock formations in Red Rocks slope as much as 90 degrees, while others tilt backwards. The southern monolith, that bears resemblance to a ship, is named “Ship Rock.” On the opposite side of the Amphitheatre stands “Creation Rock.” Both of the monoliths are taller than Niagara Falls, and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre was once listed as among the Seven Wonders of the World.

The most unique feature of the park is Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This geological phenomenon opened to music venues June 15, 1941 and seats 9,450. Red Rocks Amphitheater is the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world.

Dave Matthews Band, The Samples, Incubus, The Moody Blues, John Tesh, Ricky Lee Jones, Rob Thomas, String Cheese Incident, Stevie Nicks, Boukman Eksperyans and Bill and Gloria Gaither, to name a few. One of the most famous concert videos ever released was from U2’s 1983 Under the Blood Red Sky tour, when a fully mulleted Bono belted out “Sunday Bloody Sunday” amid a hypnotic fog and rock formations festooned with massive flames. The Performers Hall of Fame is a tribute to the legendary performances at Red Rocks, including The Beatles, The Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix.
