Wiz Khalifa at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, with Mac Miller and Chevy Woods, 9/1/12


Should you find yourself standing in front of a sold-out Red Rocks crowd that has their hands up in the air bobbing along with your opening beat, take a cue from Wiz Khalifa and assume your place at the throne by doing exactly what you want for an entire hour. The genius behind the "Kush and OJ" mixtape opened the night with "Cabin Fever." With a full band backing him, Khalifa stormed the stage clad in a leather jacket and fedora, dancing behind his scarf wrapped microphone stand.
