It has recently been revealed that our beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre, located in Morrison, CO (about 25 minutes outside of Denver), was the most attended music venue in the world of 2021.
In an article published by Billboard, Red Rocks is listed as having 996,570 attendees this year. That beats out every other venue, and it wasn’t even close. The next highest number of attendees for a venue was 271,597 (Bridgestone Arena). In fact, Red Rocks attracted more people this year than Madison Square Garden, MGM Grand Garden, T-Mobile Arena, and American Airlines Center combined.
Red Rocks was able to achieve this number by hosting 134 shows, about six times the amount of venues of comparable size.
Here’s what the Red Rocks team had to say:
