I'm going, so I'll post a report. I'm sort of intrigued to see how this show plays out, since there are some unusual variables about Red Rocks as a venue.
-it's the biggest venue on the tour (8500-9000)
-it's mostly general admission (rows 20-40 are reserved.)
-Back in the day, the deal with Red Rocks was that you went early in the day, sort of lined up, then they let everyone in at 4, and you rushed in to get seats. And basically everyone was sort of hanging out drinking and smoking before the concert, which makes for a little more of a party atmosphere.
-Sometimes it rains, so you kind of have to keep amped up for the concert to keep warm. oh, and you are sitting on wooden benches, not comfortable padded seats. (we will be taking Snuggies (tm) and blankets.
-this is the one show with an actual musical act (Iron and Wine) opening, as well as Arj Barker.
So, it's gonna feel more like a "rock" show than other venues, and it's gonna be rowdy. I think anyone local who is going will expect that, but I think any comments about being a good/polite audience are going to feel out of place to me.
Everyone I know who's stood on the stage at Red Rocks when it's empty (it's a park during day hours), totally has this "I'm a rock star moment" looking out at the empty seats. I wonder if Jemaine and Bret will be able to resist that when they are on stage looking out at 9000 cheering, rowdy fans, or if they will give into the urge and get a little more rowdy than usual themselves.
