If anything is as important to a rock band than their time in the studio, it’s their time on stage. Most bands put everything they have into keeping the fans happy as the Marshall stacks blast their way through the night.
Red Rocks in Morrison, CO
Many refer to this incredible venue as the best live music experience in the world. A perfect amphitheater was sculpted out of the Colorado Rockies by mother nature herself. The Native Americans used the area that is now the amphitheater as a gathering site, and now tens of thousands of music goers convene on the land to discover how live music should sound. The beauty of the atmosphere at Red Rocks is electrifying.
The Fillmore in San Francisco, CO
The most recognizable name in the West Coast rock scene. Music legends such as the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin got their start playing at the Bay Area venue. The Fillmore is just as elegant as when it first opened it’s historic doors.
Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK
Though Cain’s first found its fame through folk musicians and country stars, this humble venue in the mid-west is becoming a must stop on many of today’s rock greats. Just as the blend between folk and rock has been converging for the past few decades, Cain’s has been steadily gaining ground in the national touring scene. Everyone from heavy metal rockers As I Lay Dying to Progressive rock band Umphrey’s McGee to indie folk from Wilco has made Cain’s Ballroom a must visit pilgrimage for any true rock and roll fan.
