Red Rocks Is Finally a National Monument
It's official! Colorado's own Red Rocks Amphitheatre is now a National Historic Landmark.
According to an article in Men's Journal magazine, the 9,525 seat venue, which has housed the who's who in music acts like The Beatles, Sting, U2, Keith Urban and the upcoming September shows with Country superstar Tim McGraw, has been in operation since June 1941. Enjoy a video tour.
It's for sure on the KEKB Morning Show's bucket list.
It was originally owned by John Brisban Walker who was the first to envision concerts on those grounds. In 1927, the city of Denver purchased the land from Walker for $54,133. After 12 years of planning and construction led by Denver architect Burnham Hoyt, the plans were finally completed in 1936.
