Red Rocks to Welcome Dave Matthews Band Again

From the DMB Announcement List

DMB is excited to be returning to Colorado for three concerts on Friday, September 9th, Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. Nestled in the Rocky Mountain Foothills fifteen miles west of Denver, Red Rocks is a geologically formed, open-air amphitheatre with perfect natural acoustics.

Dave Matthews Band has a special history with Red Rocks, headlining at the amphitheatre for the first time August 15, 1995. The outstanding show was made into a double live LP, Live at Red Rocks, and released in 1997.

Dave Matthews Band played again at Red Rocks for two nights in early July 1997 and played their last Red Rocks shows in May of 1998, delivering 2 nights of exciting setlists. DMB looks forward to returning to one of their favorite venues after an 8-year hiatus!

I had no idea that the first time that Dave Matthews Band headlined there it was made into his great CD Live at Red Rocks. This is the CD that introduced me to the band and made me really, really enjoy them for a couple years of my life. It’s still a great CD, and it’s great to hear that Dave Matthews Band is trying to bring back his huge entourage to Red Rocks.

Do you think it’ll be successful? I haven’t been to Red Rocks. Ever. That’s the subject of a totally different post altogether. But, I have to wonder if a band of Dave Matthews Band size, 80,000+ crowds on both sides of the country, can ever return to Red Rocks…
