Video: A View From the Red Rocks Hill

I’m feeling particularly nostalgic today about the recent Phish tour and I wanted to get my grainy iPhone photos up that I took at the seven shows I saw, but I thought I’d preview it all with a view from Red Rocks that you wouldn’t think about if you had never been to the venue before.

Phish 08-02-2009 Wilson [YouTube]

On the third night of the run, me and my crew went to the top of the venue and noticed a backdrop of flashing lights, lighters, flashlights, and glowsticks strewn all over the mountain in the distance. The venue is situated in a natural valley and the whole venue is basically a state park (it definitely feels like it when you get inside), so if you’re a fan that has some stamina and some time (and no ticket for the show), consider climbing up to where this guy shot this video. Seems like this is an ideal way to get some hiking in and see a concert at one of the most beautiful venues in the world. I can watch this clip over and over again.

I'm the Editor. HOLLA.

    for someone who has never been to red rocks. this really does put the venue in perspective.and just the fact that they allow people to watch from there for free if they want is totally cool. i respect how the venue is built in the hues keeping a flow with the natural red brick-rock vibe thinkgy going on. it almost just is as if it always was. makes you wonder if native americans held this place as a natural amphitheater of sorts as for ceremonies or dances or whatever….?great video and perspective. to the dude who took this, or another fans , i know it’s hard, but don’t sing random parts of the song, it sounds really funny. and not in a good way…:)
