Is there a "pit" area at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO? How early should I arrive to be able to get to the pit?

What is a pit? Like a mosh pit? Does that still happen?

Red Rocks is all bench seating.

It's a little hard to change a rock and concrete outdoor theatre to accommodate current concert trends..

That being said, at some Red Rocks concerts I've been to, there seems to be a steady push toward the front rows, which I guess creates a "pit" feel down there. This is, however, prohibited by the venue, and security may ask to see your ticket at any time. Best to enjoy the company of your neighbours (seating there is tight as it is, so you do get cozy).

One of my favorite things about Red Rocks was sitting far enough back that you still could see the facial expressions of the musicians, but also could watch thunder/lightning storms out on the Eastern Plains. That alone makes it the greatest concert venue in the entire universe. Oh, and the acoustics are great, the Rocks are magnificent, and the show is generally so good that you don't mind the amount of time it takes to get out of there and home.

Mosh pits? We don't need no stinkin' mosh pits.

There isn't a mosh pit at Red Rocks.

If you are looking for a venue that has a mosh pit, there are plenty around Denver, and, depending on the type of show, it will be a full on mosh pit experience, if you want.

Places like Blue Bird, Ogden, Gothic Theater and Summit Music Hall all host concerts like that. Of course, the bands playing there are of a totally different flavor than what you'd see at Red Rocks.

A big venue with a "pit-like" area is 1st Bank center in Broomfield. It regularly hosts bands with household names. You can get a GA ticket and get to be pretty close to the stage. You can arrive right before the headliner start, and still make into the first 5-6 rows of the crowd. If you want to be right under the stage, then maybe right before the first warm up band start.

No. Clearly a poor design. You probably shouldn't bother going.

I've seen people try to do mosh type stuff towards the front, however this was at Offspring several years ago so I'm not sure how, "moshy," that was. They were sort of jumping from row to row and in a group and trying to do it.

My husband goes to lots of metal concerts and says that they still do mosh types stuff in the front reserved rows and close to it sort of, and in the reserved section near the sound station.

Other than that you should arrive very early to get to the front (depending on the popularity of the band...my teen sister went to 21 Pilots and arrived at 8:00 am to get in the front, yet last concert I went to people didn't even line up, and we were in row 6 or 7 within 20 minutes of doors, another I waited for 2 hours in line and was in 13 maybe)

My favorite area is around row 30-40 though because the view. Anything closer is a little too loud for me. I personally like to be somewhere between the middle and the edges, but not too far in so that it's easier to use the restroom when I am mostly likely drunk and stumbling...but maybe that's a girl problem.

I know this post was from March, but I read this today on the Red Rocks site while checking the seating chart for a show. I was not aware there is a "pulpit" close to the stage:

With a seating capacity of over 9,000 the Red Rocks Amphitheatre has a wide selection of seating options...
Mostly general admission seating in the green indicated below with reserved seating surrounding the outer edge in blue. Disabled seating is also situated at the rear of the general admission seating. For rock orientated concerts there is a Pulpit close to the stage, for those who like to get in the thick of it!
