A hidden tunnel underneath Red Rocks Amphitheatre is covered with signatures from some of music's biggest names, spanning from beneath the stage to the ampitheater's sound engineering area. With signatures from lighting technicians who've toured with Tori Amos to a recent stencil by Grammy winner Bon Iver, viewing and signing the tunnel is an exclusive opportunity. Unless you're performing at Red Rocks -- or helping load-in the production -- chances are you'll never set eyes on the tunnel. If you do happen to make it back there, explore the walls and we're sure you'll find at least one of your favorite signatures. Page down to get a gander.

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.
