Anyone who has ever taken in a show at Red Rocks knows that it is hard to describe. The acoustics, the crowds, the breath-taking view in every direction. Instead of describing it, our photographers have been hard at work capturing it, and the many concerts that occur there on film. The 2014 season is halfway over, and to celebrate (or mourn) this marking, here are the fifty best photos of the venue, and of course of the crowds and performers that make it what it is.

John Scruggs the natural acoustics are what make it a worldly wonder... The only expensive "seating" are the first 2 rows where the sound quality is lacked compared to any other seat in the house because of the distance from the speakers. Red rocks provided amazing scenery, the best or damn near top natural sound quality of any natural structure, and is a culture pot of people who travel across the country to enjoy a show there. Don't bash the rocks blindly.

I don't go to shows to view beauty, I want to hear great sound. Red Rocks just doesn't provided that.

There is an amphitheatre in Greece built in the 1st century that still operates today. It's right up there with RR.

It's a toss up between Red Rocks and the Gorge in George. But if I had to pick one it'd be RR.
