Red Rocks Amphitheatre will once again begin hosting concerts next month, the only catch is that we can’t come. The iconic Morrison, CO outdoor venue announced on Tuesday that it will host a crowdless concert series dubbed Red Rocks Unpaused.
The lineup for the three days of music 9/1–9/3 includes Phoebe Bridgers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stalion,Brett Young, and Sam Hunt.
While the news that these concerts will not be open to the public is disappointing, Visible Mobile has come up with a way to keep fans involved. During the performances, fans will be able to show their approval with the “Cheer-o-meter” where screaming into your computer microphone will transmit your applause to the stage, as well as affect the lighting at Red Rocks. Plus there will be voting options for fans to choose everything from pyrotechnics, to animations, and even the encore.
The series begins on September 1st with Phoebe Bridgers opening at 8 p.m. MT followed by a headlining performance from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats at 9:30, with the next two evenings following the same time schedule. The following night, Lil Baby will open and pave the way for Megan Thee Stalion’s headlining slot. Finally on the 3rd, Brett Young will get things started before Sam Hunt brings the entire Red Rocks Unpaused run to a close.
The concerts are available to stream for free via Twitter or the Visible website.
