It's Colorado's most-iconic music venue, as well as an awesome place to just visit; with the 2022 concert season winding down, improvements are coming.

In 2021, as part of that year's renoations, Red Rocks Amphitheatre installed a new stage roof during the downtime (which can hold 15 elephants;) the 2022 slate of improvements include changes to how we get up to the venue, as well as two other needed changes.

Seeing a show at Red Rocks is one of the coolest things you can do in all of Colorado; to see at least one a year, is near blasphemy. It's great knowing that they are always working on the park and concert area to make our experiences there better and better.

If you've grown up in Colorado, you've probably been to see a show at Red Rocks dozens of times, and it does seem that with each visit, you notice a change. I recall going in 2018 and noticing that the promenade at the top had changed to be much more open and "fun" while you're up there. These upcoming improvements/changes, that we'll notice with the 2023 concert season, are going to be great.

IMPROVEMENT #1 - THE VISITOR CENTER

They are going to give Ship Rock Grille a great revamp, making it more open and inviting. I'm looking forward to this; getting to Red Rocks, and relaxing at Ship Rock like never before. Those north bathrooms will be also improved to have better accessibility and a new Family restroom. This is just "phase one" of a multi-phase renovation project for the Visitors Center. It'll be fun to see how it all comes to fruition. The Visitor Center will be completely closed, however, while they make these changes from November of 2022, to April of 2023.

IMPROVEMENT #2 - ACCESSIBLITLY

They'll be modifying the slopes that are at the Top Plaza/promenade to make them better accessible, as well as improving Row 1's wheelchair accessibility.

IMPROVEMENT #3 - THE SOUTH RAMP

A new South Ramp? It looks like they will indeed be replacing that hike of a ramp that takes you from the south parking lot up to the venue, as it's lived out its life expectancy. They'll be upgrading it to today's standards, but keep it inline with the aesthetic nature that it has always had. I can't wait to see the new ramp; will it take less time?
