Watch Joe Russo's Almost Dead Play Red Rocks Tonight August 31, 2017 18:47

You often hear about the "magic in the air" in Colorado, and this weekend is shaping up to be a perfect explanation why. Earlier this summer, Joe Russo's Almost Dead was scheduled to make its highly anticipated Red Rocks debut, but mother nature had other plans. With a severe summer snowstorm in the forecast, the show was moved to the nearby 1st Bank Center in Broomfield (CO), with the band promising a make up show in the near future.

Shortly after what became the band's first arena show, the make up date was announced for Thursday, August 31st (aka the night before Phish's annual weekend at Dick's). It's hard to imagine a more amazing way to kick off your Labor Day weekend, and thankfully, JRAD will be webcasting their show as well. The show is scheduled to kick off shortly at 9:30 PM EST / 8:30 PM CST, and can be purchased via nugs.net by clicking here. And just a reminder...Phish will also be webcasting all three shows this weekend...with a free stream on Sunday (click here for details).

Live electronic veterans STS9 kicked off its annual weekend run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday night, and the band couldn't be coming in on a more positive note.  Friday night marked STS9's 20th performance at the famed venue, and they come in fresh off of releasing their latest album, The Universe Inside.  The show featured a numbered of debuts from the album, including the two opening songs "Supercluster" and "Out Of This World."  An additional highlight came in the form of a guest appearance from vocalist Maureen Murphy on a cover of The Isley Brothers' "Between The Sheets," a song known by many thanks to Notorious B.I.G. and his use of samples on "Big Poppa." Murphy would ultimately return for an encore performance of the STS9 classic "Better Day," which featured Alana Rocklin on stand up bass and was followed by the debut of "Light Years."  Fortunately, YouTube user J Mar has shared his footage from the show, and a full setlist courtesy of Church of STS9 can be found below.  STS9 returns to the Red Rocks stage on Saturday night for what is sure to be a historic two-night run.

Watch The Werks' Entire Set at Red Rocks Amphitheatre September 01, 2016 14:14

As the summer rolls along, there is never any shortage of world class music at Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, and this weekend was no exception.  Veteran rock group 311 hosted the annual Reggae On The Rocks, which also featured performances from Iration, Steel Pulse, Morgan Heritage, The Werks, and Judge Roughneck.  While The Werks aren't exactly a reggae band, this was a monumental opportunity nonetheless, as this would serve as the band's first performance at the famed venue.  Thanks to dedicated videographer Charles Izenstark, The Werks' entire 60-minute set from Red Rocks can be watched in full HD below.

Celebrate Red Rocks' 75th Anniversary With Five Killer Performances June 15, 2016 17:28

Photo via RedRocksOnline.com

Today, the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre celebrates it's 75th anniversary, and that's something that simply cannot be overlooked. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado, 10 miles west of Denver, where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,525 people in between. The amphitheater is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, Colorado and is located in Red Rocks Park, part of the Denver Mountain Parks system.

The earliest notable rock-and-roll performance at Red Rocks was by The Beatles on August 26, 1964, the only concert not sold out during their US-tour.  The beautiful and unique setting has led to the venue becoming a favorite for many performers, including Jimi Hendrix on September 1, 1968.  U2 performed at the amphitheatre on June 5, 1983 during their War Tour, in front of a crowd of 9,000 people.  

Red Rocks was one of the favored venues for The Grateful Dead and the venue has become a traditional stop for many subsequent jam bands. Widespread Panic holds the record for the most sold out performances at Red Rocks (48 shows). Blues Traveler has played the venue every Fourth of July since 1993, except 1999 when lead singer and harmonica player John Popper was unable to play due to heart surgery.  The venue has also seen numerous performances from the likes of Phish, My Morning Jacket, Tedeschi Trucks Band, String Cheese Incident, Umphrey's McGee, STS9, and so many more.

In honor of Red Rocks' 75th anniversary, we've included video footage of five of our favorite performances below.  We feel confident that we can speak for the all music fans when we say, "Thank you, Red Rocks, for providing an endless amount of memories to music fans far and wide!"
