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. 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.
Items found during an event are taken to the Red Rocks Operations Office backstage. Contact an event services supervisor for assistance. After a show, lost items are taken to the Denver Coliseum office by the next business day. You can inquire about a lost belonging at the Denver Coliseum, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (holidays excluded) or call 720-865-2475.

Coloradans and Red Rocks Amphitheatre concert-goers dress casual and cool. Be prepared for all weather conditions, including full exposure to the sun, strong wind and even severe rain. There is no shade or covering in the amphitheatre seating area, so you may be fully exposed to the sun or adverse weather conditions. It is always wise to dress in layers, have a poncho on hand and to wear sunscreen. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as routes from parking lots to the gates may be partially dirt, uphill and sometimes lengthy in distance, dependent on what time you arrive.
