My Morning Jacket singer Jim James may have been born to sing at places like Red Rocks. The venue lends itself so much to his voice, which soared gorgeously at times, especially when he'd hold on to words for a long time and it would completely fill up the amphitheater. "What a beautiful night," James said about an hour into the band's nearly three hour set. "I can feel God in the air. I can feel the forces of the universe conspiring for us all to have a wonderful fucking night!"
