Coolest Place On Earth To Hear And See A Concert

Post by Bryce » Sat Aug 29, 2020 10:11 pm

Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, CO

Not only are the visuals astounding, the natural rock formations surrounding the venue provide spectacular acoustics.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

Took that picture with my cell phone this past Tuesday. They tell me you can normally see the downtown Denver skyline from there, but the smoke drifting in from the California wildfires was making visibility poor.

The Breechkaul Amphitheater on the Mullerthal Trail in Berdorf, Luxembourg is neato.
It's inside a cave made of hollowed out rock from the middle ages.
Very pretty there.


Music is my life.

You make even a cell phone photo look good.

I have heard many stories from Western friends (especially the Deadheads) about what a fabulous place Red Rocks is to see a show.

My favorite is Levon Helm Studios, the barn/studio attached to his former home in upstate New York, not far from the site of the Woodstock festival. There's magic in that building. Wish I had photos.

Outdoors has better audio, especially if there is minimal slap-back.

I've heard of, but not been to or seen. Certainly an iconic place.

Not picking on you directly Vic, but why does everyone say "see a show. see a band, see a concert" when listening and hearing is much of why people go?

I can't stand it when the audio is bad. Why not just buy a CD?

Downstairs is the merch table and a snack table. Attendees are encouraged to bring shareable food; we brought pizza, while many of the locals brought cakes, pies and other homemade goodies.

The studio is on the second floor. Holds perhaps 250, including standees. Seats are stack chairs and not quite comfortable. Big wood-burning fireplace, bluestone walls quarried locally, only tongue-and-groove construction for the wood, as Levon thought metal nails would screw up the sound. Loft above for the engineer and some standees. Other than my wedding, I spent the best day of my life in that building, sitting about 6 feet from the funkiest drummer in rock and roll history.

The coolest venue I've been at is the Santa Barbara Bowl. Relatively small, I don't think it seats 5000, it's carved into a hillside. The acoustics are great, and being so close to LA, EVERYBODY plays there. I've seen Stevie Wnder, Lyle Lovett, Bonnie Raitt, among others. Weather is always great, and you start off you evening going to the bar on the top level where you can see the entire city of SB. A magical place.

Nothing. It's just didn't make the finals for "Coolest Venue On Earth."
