Thanks everyone for the information. This will give me something to check out on the weekends. Although, I'm not too happy about Denver Aztec's comment about the altitude and the singers not wanting to perform. I saw a lot of higher profile bands advertise for Red Rocks Amphitheater, so I know they'll carry some of the larger bands.

Wankel7: I used to own a Suzuki Gsxr600, but I sold it after I moved to Washington DC. I really didn't like the idea of keeping it outside when I had my apartment. I know a few people that had their bikes stolen while there. Now, that I'm out here I'm looking at getting a bike in the spring time. So, I'll keep an eye on the site you suggested.

Those that complain about the high altitude and don't return are usually not the best of bands, IMO. You will love concerts at Red Rocks, U2 shot their "Under a Blood Red Sky" video there when they first came out in the 80s. We get the big name artists there and at the Fillmore Theater and Pepsi Center. Summer has more open and outdoor venues, plus the mountain resort have some fantastic music festival. Check out Telluride and Breckenridge music festivals.

The artists that have been around know how to handle the altitude but newer bands that are not local, and heck recent residential transplants, can have issues. Drinking a lot of water is crucial if you are here just to visit and have never been. Altitude sickness can be horrible but easily preventable if you know about it.

p.s. a band from Wyoming will be coming down to the Cricket On The Hill in Jaunary, here is what another forumer sent me about them.


Thanks Jesse, you're such a good sport!

They'll be playing January 10th - The band is called Falling Untrue. They play hard rock with a melodic twist. Check them out at www.fallinguntrue.com - Hope you like them! Thanks for suffering through my pitch
Enjoy your weekend!

With photo galleries to peruse where cute folks hang out ;-)
