The Red Rocks Amphitheater received a new stage roof from GH Phipps in July 2021. This new roof will provide better protection against unpredictable Colorado weather.
The original Red Rocks roof was built in 1988 and has since passed its lifespan. The stage renovations are part of the Elevate Denver 10-year bond program. The amphitheater is part of the Denver Mountain Parks system.
“Our design and construction team have not forgotten that the greatest bands, musicians and performers from all over the world want to perform at this famous venue. the project manager for the roof installation by GH Phipps. “The new roof will provide a much safer platform for machinists and riggers while providing greater access and more space for more lights, cameras and sounds via a cable trellis system. It’s almost as if stagehands can walk through the air, while greatly enhancing an already incredible entertainment experience. “
Several factors had to be taken into account when building the new roof. It is built with more natural supplies and allows for five times the rig capacity with the support of approximately 36,000 pounds of rigging equipment.
Red Rocks was reopened this summer after the COVID-19 pandemic canceled most of 2020’s events and will continue to have shows until November 2021. For more information on events at Red Rocks, visit theredrocksamphitheater.com.
