Red Rocks-umentary

The Beatles in '64, Jimi Hendrix in '68, the Jethro Tull riot of '71, The Grateful Dead in '78, U2 in '83 ... What was your favorite show? Bob Marley in '77, Bruce Springsteen in '78, or maybe Ozzy in '84?

There have been some amazing and historic shows in the history of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and we're here to celebrate them all.

Tune in all this weekend for 103.5 The Fox's Red Rocks-umentary: a look at the history of CLASSIC ROCK at RED ROCKS! All weekend long we will be looking back at the most memorable shows at the legendary venue.

Did you know? 

  • If you had $50,000 in the 1920's, you could have purchased Red Rocks.

  • On August 26, 1964 The Beatles played Red Rocks- THE SHOW DID NOT SELL OUT!

  • Hendrix played 9/1/68

  • In the summer of 1971, around a thousand people took to squatting in the parking lot to hear the band play. But give a mouse a cookie, and it’s going to want a glass of milk. Soon, the ticket-less fans wanted to see the band inside the venue and they raged against the police to get in. Gates were knocked down, fists were thrown and it escalated from there. Violence, tear-gas, police helicopters — oh my! The amphitheater swiftly turned into an alcohol-ridden war mess while the lovely band members of Jethro Tull continued playing to try to keep some level of peace. You can guess what happened next, as the mayor banned rock ‘n’ roll from the beautiful venue. Luckily, a couple years later, the famous Red Rocks promoter Barry Fey sued against this ban and won. So, in 1976, rock ‘n’ roll returned with a vengeance.

  • Bob Marley July 1977/ Springsteen 1978/ Ozzy's first gig there was in 1984

  • The origins of Colorado's jam band "scene" are pretty nebulous, but July 7, 1978, is probably as close to a date as you're going to find pinpointing its genesis, for that's the first time the Grateful Dead played Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and, by all accounts, it was a barn burner of a performance. Words like "legendary" and "monumental" are thrown around on internet discussion boards describing the first of a two-night stand in Morrison.

  • One of the most famous concert videos ever released was from U2’s 1983 Under the Blood Red Sky tour.
