Where are my seats located?
The seat rows are numbered bottom to top 1 through 70. Rows for General Admission and Reserved Seating vary from show to show. Your seat number is located on the brown tag on the front of your seat. Please assist us in getting everyone seated as quickly as possible by making sure you are in the correct seat. Seats are numbered right to left facing the stage (lower number to the right higher number on the left). PLEASE NOTE: Rows 1 & 70 are always reserved for handicap seating at Red Rocks.
I bought General Admission tickets but they have a row and seat number on them—what's up with that?
General Admission is exactly that—first come, first seated. The row and seat numbers on GA tickets are just a form of tracking - like a serial number. Just disregard them and enjoy wherever you end up sitting. But don't forget: take up just one seat so that there is room for everyone.
What features are there for patrons with disabilities?
Accessible seating is located at the top of the amphitheatre in Row 70 and at the front of the amphitheatre in Row 1. Designated accessible parking for persons with disabilities is in two locations. Please check your tickets for the locations of your seats before parking. For access to Row 70, parking is available in the Top Circle Lot. For access to the front Row 1, parking is at the Upper South Lot. A valid, appropriate handicap placard or license plate is required. All park entrances can access all parking lots. Guests should arrive as early as possible to ensure space availability and to reach their seats prior to show time. Red Rocks operates shuttle vehicles to transport guests with disabilities or mobility impairments from the Upper South Parking Lot to the ramp accessing the first row of the amphitheatre. Accessible restrooms are available at the south amphitheatre entrance, the top of the amphitheatre and at the North Concession Stand. Concession stands are accessible from both handicapped seating sections. Additional detailed information (including Ticketing Policy) can be found at the "Access for the Disabled" link at the bottom of this page.
Does my child need a ticket?

I need to drop off my friends and pick them up later. Where is the best place?
We think that the Trading Post is the easiest place to get to if you are dropping off non-handicapped guests. It can be accessed from any entrance to the park. When you come back to pick them up, please be sure to arrive 20-30 minutes before the end of the show so that you won’t be caught up in exiting traffic. Feel free to check with us a couple days beforehand and we will know the approximate end time of the show.
It's raining now—is the show rained out?
Not Likely. Most shows begin moving in by 6:00 AM and once the decision to move in has been made, the show generally goes on. The amphitheatre stage has a large roof protecting it from adverse weather. The Denver front range area is famous for afternoon, monsoonal flow, hit and run, rain showers. Weather is generally not a factor for most shows. You are encouraged to bring rain gear. Umbrellas (as small as possible and without points) are acceptable, but because they can block the view of other guests, we would prefer that you wear a poncho instead.
Should a performance be changed or postponed due to weather conditions, announcements will be made on this web site, or by the Red Rocks automated voice response system (720-865-2494) with information regarding all of the pertinent details.
Where is your lost and found office located?
Items found during an event are taken to the Red Rocks Operations Office backstage. Contact an event services supervisor for assistance.

If you arrive early, before the Amphitheatre gates open, you may wait in line on the East Stairs. When arriving prior to the scheduled gate time, you will be directed to park in the Lower South Lot #2 -located furthest from the Amphitheatre. All entrances to the Amphitheatre open at the same time.
