2015 Schedule updates

We have updated the 2015 schedule as of May 30. Six concerts have been added, for a total of 116 for the year. This is a new record for a concert season at Red Rocks.

When we first posted the schedule, on April 18, concerts were booked on 60% of the days between April 15 and October 15. For peak season (June-July-August), 79% of summer evenings were occupied by concerts. With the revised schedule, those numbers are up to 63% overall. There are 78 concerts, so far, in June-August, for 85% of nights booked during the summer months. That leaves, for peak summer months, only 14 days we can enjoy our backyards without being subject to concert impacts.

BassNectar, Night 3– May 31

The evening started out pretty mellow last night, noise-wise, in fact surprisingly so. But Bassnectar most likely wasn’t on stage until after 10, and noise escalated some after that. Let us know what you experienced, please!

Tonight’s concert, the third of the series, should at least end by 11:45 p.m., according to the weeknight schedule restriction.

Keep an ear out!


To rate any noise from tonight’s concert, here’s the scale we used last year. Please add further comments below if you wish.

  1. barely noticeable, not disturbing
  2. moderately noisy, somewhat disturbing
  3. noisy, annoying, couldn’t be outside
  4. kept awake or woke from a sound sleep, significantly disturbing
  5. walls and windows rattling, extremely disturbing, even indoors

Arts & Venues asks that you report sound you hear using their survey, or call the concert phone line: 720-865-2494, option 4  and someone will fill it out for you. There may be wait times. Also, at this point, you need to listen to the entire message or most of it before you can select option 4. We hope that will change before the season gets much farther along.

We appreciate a quick report here or by email, too, so we can keep track of the information as well.

Thanks!

BassNectar, Night 2– May 30

We had a number of reports of intolerable noise levels between 11 and 12:30 last night, although early volume was only moderately noisy. Tonight started pretty quiet, but intensity is picking up some now (10:30 p.m.). Keep us posted on your experience; it seems to be spotty around the general area.

Decemberists, May 27, face excitement on the Rocks

raindelayIt was a rough night for fans last night, as Nature’s light show took center stage between 9 and 10 p.m. Red Rocks Amphitheatre experienced a “rain delay”—more like a lightning, heavy rain, and hail delay from our viewpoint—that kept headliner “Decemberists” off the stage until after 10:30 p.m. A heavy rain of tweets informed concert-goers they should take shelter in the Visitor Center or their cars. Many got to their cars and simply left, no doubt cold and drenched by then.

We’ve captured some of the venue’s tweets in this image. Click to enlarge it, or check it out on twitter.

But the show went on! Let us know if you heard it, or if it seemed to go overtime due to the delay.

So, the thumping started before noon today and continued (according to our reports) off and on through 6 p.m. or so. The concert was scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m.

According to @RedRocksOnline’s latest tweet, Odesza is on stage now. What will the rest of the evening bring? Please let us know what you hear, AND call the hotline at 720-865-2494 so they know what your experience is. Thanks!!

Reports from last night’s concert

Tipper really made a bad impression. Here are some comments we received:

“Last night we heard the music clearly until quite late. Friday we did not hear anything. [Last night] must have been very loud since we generally do not hear any music when our windows are closed.”

“It was fine until around 10 and then turned up to overdrive after that.”

“I filed my first survey/complaint at 10:30 and a 2nd one at 11:30. It was horrible inside and outside.”

“Nothing like a concert that amps UP at 11.”

“It is 11 pm tonight [Saturday] and the noise and constant banging are horrible. I can’t sleep.”
