Hello good people.
We've attended almost every Avett Brothers
Red Rocks show since they started headlining
RR in 2011.
The * is we missed last year and are
Truly excited to return to our closest
Concert venue for the 7/28-7/30 shows.

7/29 has me most excited because I'm
Hyped to see Gary Clark Jr. Opening
Which will confirm a great night on
The Rocks for sure!

A friend of mine who has never see TAB
May be flying in from out of state on
7/29 for said show to join us.
If that works out, we
Plan on being to the venue mid morning to
Set up for a day of tailgating leading up
To the show. Always interested in meeting
Like minded fans.

Never too early to dream because we are
Currently dealing with a huge snowstorm
So the idea of sun, drinks, good food and good company at Red Rocks always brings a smile
To our time honored summer tradition of
Summer Concerts at Red Rocks!
:mrgreen:

By the time Red Rocks rolls around, it'll be my 23rd show (if I don't add a few more between now and then) and I'm almost as excited to just see the venue, as I am the band. :) Now can we hope for FTG in its entirety this year or what? :)

We're going to the show on 7/28 and it's our first concert at Red Rocks. We're flying into Denver and just trying to figure out logistics as far as where to stay and what time the "early entry" begins for the VIP Experience tickets. Anybody have any hotel suggestions or info on the VIP Experience? Everything on the website is a little vague.

Hi bmm1520,

I have worked at Red Rocks for 3 years full-time (this year only part-time)... Last year I went to all three shows because I didn't feel like working the shows gave me enough Avett Experience! This year I'm going to all three shows again; but VIP only one night -- 7/28, which happens to be my birthday. :D Yaaay! Regarding your question about hotels, it really just depends on how much you want to spend. The town of Morrison is awesome and they have a couple of bed and breakfasts that might be a good option -- then you get the WHOLE Red Rocks experience. But if you choose to stay at a place in Denver or a surrounding area (Lakewood, Golden), transportation is super easy coming and going. There are cabs at the end of every show parked at the Upper North Lot "Circle lot" or at the Trading Post (the gift shop/Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which you should definitely check out). Or you could get a smart car or something like that. The VIP entrance is going to be on the South side of the "bowl" (sort of near the Trading Post) and I believe entrance is about a half hour-hour before doors open to the general admission/reserved seating folks. Let me know what other questions you have and I'll try to help ya out!

So Friday, July 29th's Gary Clark Jr./Avett Brothers @redrocks show is the first of the
3 to be SOLD OUT! Good taste people!
I know Saturday usually goes first (and I know all
3 will be sold out soon) but it made me smile.
I'm excited about this night the most.
Our mountain is beginning to melt.
The countdown will feel more real soon.
