Some blasted the Pepsi Center's sound and high ticket prices, others lamented the 2020 concert season in general, and one took umbrage with traffic at Red Rocks, saying he prefers Fiddler's Green. Here's what readers had to say:
These are mostly at the Pepsi Center which is TERRIBLE for sound for a concert! It’s a great sports venue but not a good concert venue. Plus there are better acts coming though other venues that will not cost an arm and a leg and will have much better sound quality.Adds Robin:
All shows should go to Red Rocks. The event center and the Pepsi Center both suck! The seats are cramped and the staff is uptight. It’s a shame the lineup has been sub par the last couple of years, but it only fits so many people.Notes Ed:
My first concert at Red Rocks was Rush. I spent 2.5 hours in traffic, and got to my seat just before intermission. It was my last concert at Red Rocks. All hail Fiddler's Green.Explains Danielle:
Sound at Pepsi Center sucks unless you’re on the floor. Pass.Opines Jeffrey:
Boring concert season. I hope it gets better.States Chris:
Pretty much all those shows except the three or four rock shows all fucking suck balls.2020 Red Rocks shows — which already includes nearly forty concerts — here.
And the arena and stadium shows also include a wide of artists. There's a strong representation from country: Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.
