Anyone who has ever taken in a show at Red Rocks knows that it is hard to describe. The acoustics, the crowds, the breath-taking view in every direction. Instead of describing it, our photographers have been hard at work capturing it, and the many concerts that occur there on film. The 2014 season is halfway over, and to celebrate (or mourn) this marking, here are the fifty best photos of the venue, and of course of the crowds and performers that make it what it is.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
