The majority of man-made concert venues were built with the ease of setting up the stage in mind. However, because Red Rocks is a natural amphitheatre, it gets a little tricky.

For example, instead of an artist's many semi trucks simply backing up to the back door, at Red Rocks these trucks must be unloaded in a lower parking lot onto smaller trucks that can actually fit up the ramp.

Crews show up early in the morning on the day of a concert and begin plotting out the stage, setting up lights, and unloading trucks for the upcoming concert.

Setting up for a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre is no simple task, as you'll see below in this rare look behind the scenes of the famous concert venue:
