In hopes that things are returning to relative normalcy, the world-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheater will reopen for concerts this month at a reduced capacity. Founded in 1941, the announcement coincides with venue’s 80th anniversary.

Resuming business at a 2,500 person limit, as determined by the state of Colorado, the open-air venue will host just over 25% of its usual 9,000 capacity. Gracing the stage for the first time since all in-person shows were canceled in 2020, will be jam band Lotus for two nights from April 23-24 and EDM will return to Red Rocks in May with five dates from ZHU from May 3rd through 10th.

Stating their limitations while announcing the exciting news, the Rocky Mountains venue shared a message to fans: “Red Rocks Amphitheater will open, with State approval, at a capacity of 2,500 people! You should see announcements soon. We’re so excited about the imminent return of live music to #RedRocksCO, and look forward to welcoming you back for a fantastic 80th anniversary summer.”
