Red Rocks Begins Planning For April Reopening

The iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado has asked the state’s permission to host 2,500 capacity events. 

Recent venues around the world have started to announce their re-opening dates and now Red Rocks have asked the state of Colorado permission to host 2,500 capacity events. A 2,500 capacity event would mean only 25% of the venue would be full, thus creating a safe environment for all concert-goers. Red Rock’s director of communication aims to increase the venues to 80% by the end of the summer. All social distancing measures will be put in place and guests will have to sit 6 feet apart from each other.

Earlier this year, Red Rocks announced their official 2020 calendar dates which featured performances from  Ganja White Night’s, GalantisHippie SabotageSubtronicsRufus Du Sol, and Zeds Dead’s Dead Rocks, amongst many others. According to Red Rock’s event calendar, its first show back will be Galantis and 3LAU on April 23.

It is reported that the application asking permission to host 2,500 capacity events was received by the Denver Department of Public Health but hasn’t yet made it to the state. According to The Know, if the state of Colorado decides to pass the request, capacity would rise to 60% in May and as high as 80% in July.

It will be interesting to see how Red Rock’s request is pereceived, and if it will impact other venues going forward.
