Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Inverse, and many others all rank Red Rocks Amphitheatre as one the finest in the nation. The ancient red rock walls flanking either side and the pedigree of bands that have performed there make it a place like no other.  I've experienced it four times and each was unforgettable. Rush, U2, and Big Head Todd & The Monsters twice. On June 10th I plan to make it a third BHT/Red Rocks show. This weekend is the unofficial start of summer. Make it the summer you make it to Red Rocks. I highlighted a few of my highlights.
