Event Information

RED ROCKS 8 O'CLOCK HOWL at Red Rocks Amphitheatre has been rescheduled to Wednesday April 28, 2021! There is nothing you need to do as your tickets will be valid for the new date.

The Red Rocks 8 o’clock Howl opens the iconic venues’ 80th anniversary, not with platinum-selling acts, but those who have kept the music playing during the Covid-19 pandemic from their front porches, churches, yards and hospitals.

Among the performers:

· The firefighters and first responders of the Emerald Society Bagpipers who played nightly in communities across Colorado

· Intensive Care Unit nurse Emily Worthem who sang for her patients at UC Health

· Dove Award-winning vocalist JoFoKe, trumpeter Shane Endsley and pianist Adam Waite performed gospel and jazz online

· 5th-grader Raditya Muljadi who played piano concerts for charity

· Special remarks from Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock


Emceed by KBCO’s Bret Saunders, the event also includes a special 8 O’clock Howl for front line workers. 

It’s an emotional first night back from a pandemic that has touched audiences and those associated with the concert industry, and a fitting way for Red Rocks to celebrate those who have lifted spirits through their personal passions for music.

FREE LIVE STREAM: This event will also be livestreamed for FREE on the Red Rocks Facebook page tonight. Tune in to help us officially kick off the 80th anniversary season, starting at 6:30pm MST!
