Western Colorado’s First Concerts at Las Colonias Amphitheater
Ask anyone in Grand Junction, Colorado, and they'll tell you that Las Colonias Amphitheater is a great place to see a concert.
While the music venue is fairly new, having opened only about six years ago in 2017, countless great concerts have been held there in its short existence.
The Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park, affectionately known by the locals as The AMP is situated right on the Colorado River at 925 Struthers Ave, Grand Junction, CO 81501.
The venue holds thousands of people with a small, concrete area in front of the stage, typically where you'll find chairs, surrounded by a huge, grassy hill. However, the majority of the time, attendees are allowed to bring their own chairs in order to have a more comfortable place to sit on the lawn.
As mentioned above, the venue has held a large number of memorable concerts since its first opening and continues to do so every year.
So, curious, I posted a question on Facebook asking what the first concert that Western Colorado residents had ever attended at The AMP was, and this is what they said.
