Visitor FAQ

Where is Will Call at Red Rocks?

The Box Office and ticket Will Call is located on the Red Rocks Park Road. The Red Rocks Park Road entrance (Entrance 2) is along Hwy. 93 and is the closest entrance to the town of Morrison. Standard time for Tickets Will Call to open is four hours prior to show time. Visit our hours, directions and maps page to see where the Box Office is located.

Where are my seats located?

The seat rows are numbered bottom to top 1 through 70. Rows for General Admission and Reserved Seating vary from show to show. Your seat number is located on the tag on the front of your seat. Seats are numbered right to left facing the stage (lower number to the right higher number on the left). Rows 1 & 70 are always reserved for accessible seating at Red Rocks.

Beginning in the 2018 season, tickets purchased in Rows 1-4 are non-transferable, meaning they must be used by the original purchaser. This change was made to combat ticket scalping, particularly in Row 1, which is designated as wheel-chair accessible and mobility-impaired seating.

Fans who purchase tickets in accessible seating sections will be asked to verify their need for accessible seating during the purchase process. Those seated in the front accessible seats in Rows 1-2 will be prompted for identification and wrist-banded when initially seated. Promoters may expand the non-transferable seating beyond Row 4 on a show-by-show basis, so please refer to your order to review whether your seats are transferable. For all fans with non-transferable tickets, the original purchaser MUST arrive with the entire ticketed party and present a Flash Seats-approved credential, so please take this into consideration when arriving at your event.

How do I get my tickets?

Flash Seats is the ID-based digital ticketing system and the preferred admission method at Red Rocks. It allows you to enter Red Rocks with either a Flash Seats ID, your driver's license or the credit card used to purchase tickets. It also gives you the ability to safely transfer, sell and buy seats through the offical Red Rocks Fan-to-Fan Marketplace. Visit our Flash Seats FAQ to learn more.

What features are there for patrons with disabilities?

Accessible seating is located at the top of the amphitheatre in Row 70 and at the front of the amphitheatre in Row 1. Designated accessible parking for persons with disabilities is in two locations. Please check your tickets for the locations of your seats before parking. For access to Row 70, parking is available in the Top Circle Lot. For access to the front Row 1, parking is at the Upper South Lot. Additional detailed information (including Ticketing Policy) can be found at the Accessibility page.

Does my child need a ticket?

Although the promoter of some shows may have a different policy generally children under 2 years of age do not need a ticket. They are required to sit on the lap of the adult and to not interfere with someone else’s seat.

Can I buy tickets at the Box Office?

The Red Rocks Box Office is open day of show only. If tickets are still available for that day’s show, and other upcoming shows, you can usually purchase them at the Box Office.

Can a show be rained out?

Not Likely. Most shows begin moving in by 6 a.m. and once the decision to move in has been made, the show generally goes on. The Red Rocks stage has a large roof protecting it from adverse weather. Weather is generally not a factor for most shows. Since the Denver front range area is famous for afternoon, monsoonal flow, hit and run, rain showers, you are encouraged to bring rain gear. Should a performance be changed or postponed due to weather conditions, announcements with all pertinent information will be made at, on and, and/or through the Red Rocks automated voice response system (720-865-2494).

Where is lost and found located?

Items found during an event are taken to the Red Rocks Operations Office backstage. Contact an event services supervisor for assistance.

Yes. There are two ATM’s located in the Visitor Center at the top of the Amphitheatre and one located at the North Concession Stand.

Are tailgate parties permitted in the parking lots?

Generally, yes. However, open alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the parking lots. Due to risk of fire in the park, open flame fires and charcoal grills are also prohibited. Small gas-controlled grills are allowed unless there are temporary fire bans during high-risk fire periods. Tailgating must be within the confines or your parking spot. Restaurant delivery or onsite catering is not permitted.

If I leave something in my car, may I leave the show to go get it?
