Red Rocks Amphitheater Colorado

Red Rocks amphitheater is known worldwide to musicians and music enthusiasts alike. Stunning natural red rock formations create an environment unlike any other. The sound quality you will experience is absolutely incredible. Just a short distance from Downtown Denver and 10 minutes outside of Morrison, no vacation is complete without a trip to Red Rocks. Wondering what your Colorado Zipline staff is looking forward to most this summer? Here’s our list of must go to shows.

Danny Bell, Assistant Sales Manager and Hiring Director

Big Head Todd and the Monsters on June 10th, 2017. “This band is local and has a very unique Colorado sound. They have been around forever and put on a really great show.”

Sarah Witekz, Dispatcher

Flume on July 5th, 2017. “I’m really looking forward to Flume because it is always such a fun show and an all around great experience, not just a concert.”

Daniel, Sales Associate

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on May 30th, 2017. “His music is classic and he’s a pretty genuine fella.”

Ryan Santilli, Sales Manager

Disco Biscuits and Shpongle on July 30th, 2017.  “It is a fun show and they are a favorite band.”

Michelle Pisano, Operations Manager

Papadisio on May 6th, 2017. “Because it’s funky and weird and Alex/Allyson Grey will be there and they’re not music artists but they are artists that have some pretty phenomenal work. The supporting acts are just as good as the main event.”

Kelly Thrall, Hiring Coordinator

Pink Martini with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra on July 6th, 2017. “It sounds fun and interesting and you can’t go wrong at Red Rocks!”

Arik Wallace, Sales Associate

Foreigner with Cheap Trick on September 4th, 2017. “Because Foreigner is my favorite band and who wouldn’t want to go see Cheap Trick?!”


A great way to end a day of rafting or ziplining would be to stop by Red Rocks and see a great show. There are shows, free movies, some beautiful hiking and events happening almost every day throughout the summer. With a wide variety of musicians and genres, there really is a show to satisfy everybody’s taste in music!
