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.

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.

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