Red Rocks Amphitheatre FAQ's
What are the best seats at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre?
Like most amphitheaters across the U.S., seats closest to the front and center tend to be the most desirable for performances offering reserved seating. The sightlines throughout the venue are fantastic. Aside from a small mixing board behind row 7, the venue is free of obstructions. The steep design of the amphitheater contributes unobstructed views from almost every seat.
What style of seating does the Red Rocks Amphitheatre offer?
All of the seating is wooden benches without backs. The venue is very egalitarian with most shows offering all ticket holders one level of amenities. There is not a VIP or member’s only club. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a truly open-air amphitheater, all of the seating is uncovered. In the absence of extreme weather, Red Rocks shows typically occur in all weather conditions.
