Lucky in life.  My North End neighbor Larry had an extra concert ticket to Red Rocks Sunday nite.

Ray LaMontagne.  Never heard of him – didn’t matter.   Great company, great music, great venue, great night.

Don’t be afraid to say YES to the unexpected.  Be spontaneous, life is meant to be lived.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado, where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre. Red Rocks Amphitheater is a naturally formed, world famous outdoor venue just fifteen miles west of Denver. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,525 people.

Rolling Stone magazine has ruled the best amphitheater in the United States is Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison.  Red Rocks was judged to be better than even New York’s Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl, which were Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Public, organizational and private performances have been held at Red Rocks for more than 100 years. The earliest documented performance at the amphitheater was the Grand Opening of the Garden of the Titans, put on by famed editor John Brisben Walker on May 31, 1906. Featuring Pietro Satriano and his 25-piece brass band, it was the formal opening of the natural amphitheater for use by the general public after Walker purchased it with the proceeds of his sale of Cosmopolitan Magazine.
