Red Rocks Amphitheatre is an open-air amphitheatre built into a rock structure in the western United States, near Morrison , Colorado, ten miles (16 km) west of Denver .
The Red Rocks Park contains many layers of a cross bedded red fusion of coarse to fine grained sedimentary rock called the conglomerate Fountain Formation. The red rock is comprised of the ancient sedimentary remains of the long gone ancestral Rocky Mountains.
In an open letter addressed to the Denver community, Denver Arts & Venues Executive Director Ginger White said several popular venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre , will close unless being used for COVID-19 relief programs.
1. Red Rocks Hiking Trails. The Trading Post Trail is a 1.4-mile loop that takes visitors around the park’s trademark rock formations, while the Red Rocks Trail connects with Matthew Winters Park to the north for a dramatic 6-mile hike. The Red Rocks Trail can also connect with the Dakota Ridge Trail to the east.
Guests are welcome until (1) hour after sunset. The Visitor Center and Ship Rock Grille remain closed, concessions are being sold on the Top Plaza. Vehicles will not be permitted to enter the park after 7:00 p.m. Face coverings are required in the amphitheatre and must be kept on your person at all times.

In the midst of what one business owner called “an invasion,” 10 people went to jail, the town was turned upside down and the band was unofficially banned from Red Rocks for a decade.

The distinctive red that Colorado sandstone rock is known for is because of rust. This happens because sandstone is a porous stone; all the iron particles trapped in the sandstone interact with oxygen and water as these elements trickle into the stone.
This venue is a favorite among many performers because of its near-perfect acoustic surroundings. It is one-of-a-kind and its excellent acoustics are a result of the two giant monoliths that surround the seating area. Dubbed the Ship Rock and the Creation Rock, the sandstone structures are taller than Niagara Falls.
Colorado’s crystalline rocks are Precambrian-aged igneous and metamorphic ( granite , gneiss , schist ), as well as Tertiary aged volcanic and igneous intrusive ( granite , pegmatite ).
