If only it could get the major concerts. It's small size and the lack of any other larger outdoor ampitheater in Denver means many tours skip Colorado altogether, unfortunately. I would say Miami gets far more concert tours than Denver.

What good is having the greatest outdoor concert venue (which I agree Red Rocks is) if you can't attract tours or you can't get tickets to the shows that do come because they sell out in 20 minutes?

Not true. The bigger concerts are usually held at Mile High, or Invesco Field, or Sports Authority Field...whatever they are calling it now.

Lack???? We can host any size concert!!!! Red Rocks is 10,000. Fiddlers/Coors is 18,000-20,000. Dick's is easily 20,000-30,000. Pepsi center is 20,000. Sports Authority could do 80,000+. And we get all the major stops.

Maybe so, but most people compare MSA's.

The main reason why I would say that Denver can't stack up well with cities the likes of Miami is because Miami is international Denver's domestic, Miami is world renown Denver is national and an after thought at that, Miami's nightlife and tourism is on a whole other level, beaches, cruises, if anything now that I think about it if there's any city Denver can match up to that's bigger I would say its Phoenix, Miami imo is out of Denver's league.

That's actually a fair assessment. Miami does have much more world wide fame than Denver. But that doesn't make it "out of Denver's league." It just makes it more well-known. Like I said earlier, unless you are a hard corps surfer or have a membership in a yacht club, Miami doesn't have anything that Denver can't match on some level.

Well if you're going to go by those terms, then that's just about true for any city, why stop at Miami? Go for Chicago, LA, New York City

Because those cities really do outgun Denver on many levels! But notice they are all much bigger, too. I believe my initial claim was that Denver can stack up nicely against most cities in the 5-6 million range.

sure it does

better nightlife (by a longshot)
better shopping
a lot more internationally known and a big international gateway
more ethnic enclaves (Little Havana) - Denver seems more intergrated

I give Denver recognition for having a better downtown, more walkable and cohesive, and the remaining differences are the obvious such as topography, but I see Miami as much more of a world city and Denver as much more all American for the most part.
