Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Its not impossible but I don't think they would do a caravan type show at red rocks. It is a small venue and having all other types of bands come for such a small venue does not make sense dollar wise. If they were to sell more then 9,500 tickets to the other events for the day, I could not imagine the drunks tyring to knock down the rocks to get into the venue when DMB plays. This would be the perfect storm to get DMB possibly banned from red rocks.

True. I went Monolith and the set-up worked well with the stage at the top of the amphitheater along with a smaller tent. That festival was mostly up-and-coming indie and edm bands with a few noteworthy headliners, nobody of DMB stature. I just think that with the Caravans attracting 20-40k? they would pick a venue with more space for multiple stages and that would double or triple the capacity of RR.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

And let's not forget, the Mile High Music Festival (that I absolutely loved, by the way, even with some weak lineups) was basically a DMB Caravan without a Dave and Tim set and a ferris wheel. And it couldn't make enough of a profit to sustain with Tom Petty and Jack Johnson being on the bill in this market. So I think a Caravan type stop does not make sense. It needs to be DMB only at Dick's Sporting Goods Park for three days with camping outside... just like they did for Phish. People from the region would come (hence no NM, AZ NE, UT, KS dates, make a weekend of it and have a good, good time. Plus all us Colorado folks would get tickets. Which still drives my desire to NOT see them at Red Rocks. Yep, I'm selfish.

Couldn't agree more. The thought of fighting for Red Rocks tickets with all the out of towners would be more then I could take. Expect broker prices of >$300. Put me in fhe selfish category on this as well. Dicks is a great place to see a concert IMO. Phish was great. Better tailgating then RR. I'll get my RR fix with Dispatch (rumor) and a few others.

I am with you guys, stay away from red rocks. I could really care less if they never play there again. I want to see a show in my state without having to take out a second mortgage to see a concert.

I also agree that Phish was tops at Dicks and the tailgating was great.

Sadly though I think we are going to be stuck with red rocks.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Already making the trip up to Red Rocks for the Shins. Brandi Carlile said she'd be there this summer, so that's a for sure show... and I might finally go see Blues Traveler up there... just to say I did.

Yes Sir

Wish and Hope i'm wrong about dmb at RR this year but sadly i don't think that's going to be the case

For the record.... the SongKick website was one or two people posting dmb at RR to get a rise outta people. Very Lame.

Well, here's to hoping additional dates get announced. Seems to be par for the course over the last few years...

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

I'm kinda hoping for dicks as well. I love Red Rocks and love seeing concerts up there, but with how many people would travel it won't be worth the hassle. Phish at dicks was great...the sound was better than what I thought it would be and if you were in the back the sound was no worse than at the top of the hill at Red Rocks. I already get to see the Avett Brothers/Devotchka at Red Rocks this year....I'd like a DMB concert where I don't have to fight for tickets. Plus Dicks is only about 15 minutes from me.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Well it looks like Red Rocks we will be going. Same as 2005, release the dates and then announce red rocks about a month later. I have to imagine if it was dicks they would have announced it with the rest of the dates. Funny though how the west coast seems to be pretty bleak. No New Mexico, Utah or Arizona.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Yes I think it is quite a bummer how little western shows there are. Unless for some reason they plan to announce some other western cities later.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Okay so after reading some posts it looks like RR is about 50/50. Which if it happens I'm going for sure. On a side note, I moved to CO a few months ago (Fort Collins) for grad school. If there are any Dave fans in the area - hit me up! Looking to meet some new Dave fans. Because thus far, I haven't found many here.

BTW, I'm looking into going SOMEWHERE/ANYWHERE to see Dave/ a Jam Band festival this year, whether in CO or not. If interested, also hit me up!

I also saw Phish at Dick's. Down on the field was one sweet place to see a concert - although I still prefer ampitheatres. But seriously, being on that metal grate that was placed on top of the field felt like being in a spaceship

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

If there's no dates being added, then this will be my first summer of not seing DMB since 1995. Since their "summer" starts during the school year and ends during the school year, my only hope is to catch some shows June 10 on. And as a baseball coach, our season won't end until July 25 so making a far trip is not likely. Yep... a lot of shows I can travel to see from that point on. What a bummer.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

It's funny that so many people are dismissing the Red Rocks dates because they were on Songkick when the other dates on there all ended up being right...

That was me in 2007. No local show and couldn't get out to anything else. Had been to shows since 1996. Sucked.

Hopefully things will work out

They got out of control this year because of song kick. I am certainly speculating that they will play there but I still believe they will. No disrespect to you but you certainly have no proof that they won't play there. Maybe they will maybe they won't, however one of us will be right in a couple months. Your guess is just as good as mine.

Same for me Dave. Taking the kids to Disney world this year so can't afford to travel to see a show this year. I still hold out hope for a Denver date regardless of the negative nancies on the boards.

Re: Red Rocks 2012!!!

Interesting---the 2012 tour logo is very similar to the 05' Red Rocks tour poster. Just sayin---05 was indeed announced well after the regular tour. August is open for now, Songkick was accurate on the rest of the tour---We will see.
