this is the best news ever!!  now comes the question of....do I try for the roll call tix or wait for the actual presale?  I would assume these will sell out....I've never gone to Red Rocks I need some guidance!

To VIP, or not to VIP?  I've had the soundboard VIP treatment at Red Rocks for Thievery Corp and it's pretty good (The signed poster is a great bonus).  The first 20 rows or so will still be GA and will fill up with Roll Callers who line up hours before the show.

So the real question is, how long do I want to tailgate?

Good questions.  With no wrong answers.

Does anyone have the code in their dashboard?  I do not.  Regular tix are probably great, but the signed poster without waiting in crazy lines is pretty cool.

the timing seems very odd to me and makes me wonder if it was moved up due to all the chatter? A lot of people have their budgets set for the holidays and all that and a post-holiday announcement seems like it would be better but I know nothing about the industry, just strikes me as odd

The onsite host for the Vegas shows at Brooklyn Bowl was basically a waiter taking drink/food orders and bringing them right to you.

Can someone who has been to RR before tell me how seating works?  Is it all GA or part GA?  My real question is do I have to buy my ticket with the group I am going to go with or can I buy my single ticket and then all go in together and sit together?

The seating varies by event buy I don't see anything confirming this configuration for May MMJ.  The VIP section will be rectangle around "Mix" on that image.

so as the image that parker posted shows, there is GA in the front and top, with reserved in the middle.  But I'm not sure how much the reserved is enforced.  I've seen 10+ shows at Red Rocks, it used to be all GA.  Last time I was there was for Phish in 2009, and most folks ignored the reserved seating stuff and it more or less became all GA.  I imagine jacket fans won't necessarily take this approach though.  Generally speaking, you want to avoid the top, it can get windy and the sound can bee poor up there.

Post by: walterfredo on Dec 14, 2015, 10:30 AM
my question is this...for the VIP packages, you get to watch the whole show in an enclosed area by the soundboard?  No chance that it will be full if you get in close to show time?  I don't have the patience for the early entry and would like to walk in right before the show...will I still be able to walk into the VIP area and watch the show or does it require early entry?

Thank you!! great to know, was just thinking about how I wonder if the sound is ok up top or not.  I would assume they will do an early entry for roll call so I would hope the bottom GA doesn't fill up too quickly!  outside the first few rows obviously

Yes, the area is roped off for the entire show, and depending on who is working security that night, they'll make sweeps throughout the show to make sure everyone in the section has a wristband.  One dude is a notorious hard-ass for removing people that sneek under the rope.

Does anyone know if the VIP allows re-entry? As in I'll grab my poster and go tailgate with my friends that don't care about VIP and then come back in to the show and sit in the designated section.

FWIW, I had this VIP setup for Theivery Corp 2 years in a row at Red Rocks and the tickets and poster were picked up at Will Call before the show.  There was no re-entry.

Went to the August RR Show. Will for sure be road-tripping back out for this run in May! Def going to shoot for GA this time. Debating if the Roll Call will be worth it? Its an annual membership, so with them probably not doing a lot of shows the remainder of the year, I wonder if its worth it assuming I just make it to these two shows. I def see the value for the RR shows (early entry/poster) but if I can get GA tickets during the general public sale on Friday, I think I will be ok. I would have the wife / friends at the show that are not hardcore MMJ like I am and would want to tailgate with them prior to the show.

Either way, looks like Christmas came early!

There are thousands of GA seats. If you have Roll Call and purchase tickets presale, they are more than likely will call and non transferable. If you are traveling far like me, and it is 6 months away, it can be a risky purchase. Things happen in life. I think it would be safe to wait until regular sale for GA. I am not sure if my early entry pass will be valid or if I will need to re-up for Roll Call.

i would love an opener if it's PHJB or somebody that has some horns.  It's time to bring the horns back to Red Rocks. 

If no horns, then let's just keep it MMJ

Post by: IndyJacket on Dec 14, 2015, 01:31 PM
My thoughts on some comments above.  Most likely they will have an opener, but still play the epic 3 hour show.   I'd love if they did a 2 set show, but only few bands I know do that.

Last, someone mentioned 'that they weren't sure how enforced reserved section are'  Many people are spending good money and travelling.  Please be respectful not to be in someone's seat.

Good luck with tickets everyone!

What I took away from the poster part... Since the golden package gets you a signed poster from the band then it'll probably be multi day single poster :(

Wow, checking in from Uganda, I must have gotten some cosmic vibe to look in on the Forum just now. Great they are coming back to Red Rocks for two nights during Memorial Day weekend. Would be nice if I could be home to see it, but this Peace Corps gig isn't so bad. I hope it is filmed again, I enjoyed last summer's show.

Do we think that the VIP early entry is EARLIER than roll call entry?

Preliminary reports indicate the entry will go Roll Call then VIP then GA. Far from confirmed, however.

this is my biggest concern at this point.  is there a chance that VIP is the ONLY way to get early entry this time?

I'd bet deluxe Roll Call will still get you in early.

As much as I want to buy tix today, I just can't do it with the non-transferable BS.  This is half a year away.  I'll have to pass today and get regular on sale so we can off them in case something comes up.  Can't believe roll call hasn't figured this one out yet.

I think it may be only the VIP packages that are nontransferable.  I'm not sure that will apply to purchases of GA tickets outside of a VIP package.

I hear you.  But they could be mailing the tickets.  It's never clear.  I got Roll Call tickets in the mail well before one of my summer shows.  I'm probably going to go with the regular sale as well with the added bonus of avoiding what could be a long will call line. 

I get why the Roll Call policy is strict. That said...... why mail the tickets ahead of time for people to flip if they are trying to discourage scalping.   If they would allow a transfer to a current fan club member, that would be cool.  But that sounds like a headache for them to handle.

GA is GA everywhere, 1st come 1st served.

as i understand it, VIP will have their own roped off section off the soundboard (row 10-15 or so i believe), and in that roped off area will also be GA-1st come 1st serve to VIPs).   there would be nothing stopping VIPs from battling it out for the closer rows of GA though. 

i would love some kind of confirmation that non-VIP Roll Callers will get the early entry treatment along with the VIPs.

All GA is 1st C 1st S.  Roll Call gains early entry regardless, same as VIP.  To me the VIP means you don't need to enter early unless you want the first row of that specific sections which starts about row 7(ish).  And of course the signed poster if that's your thing.  Otherwise, get GA wait in line and you can sit up close without the extras.  RR can be set up numerous ways but the current set up is just like this summer, which I prefer.  You can also get a reserved seat, starting at row 25, which also allows you access to GA seating down below.  It's pretty nice if you only want a few hours of up close and then head back to a seat to rest.  Not my style but nice to have the option.  Those are only onsale Friday to the public and getting the first few rows 25-27 is fairly easy if you're on the computer at sale time.  These will not sell out Friday but will eventually.  I wouldn't worry too hard about it unless you want the VIP.  I assume they will go really fast to both Roll Call, Promoters, Am Ex, etc.  Great giveaways for companies type stuff. 

Good luck everyone.  I'll see you on the rail!!!  :beer: :grin: :beer:

I think most folks reservation is that the shows are 6 months away, and if something comes up and you can't make the show, you eat your tickets.  At least that's why I won't do will call.

Same thing happened to both me and my friend.  He had 2 tix for each night, paypal froze and then he eventually got the paypal email confirming his purchase; however, there is no receipt in his ground ctrl orders section.  For me, same thing happened, though I did have them in my orders.  He has since been able to purchase a pair for the second night, but the first is still popping as sold out.

This is a major screw-up by Wonderful Union.  They need to honor anyone who can show the receipt for their paypal purchase and give them their tickets.  We are traveling for this show, and now we are both screwed by their mistake.  I have tickets that I will not use if my friend can't go.

I see a lot of people mentioning will call being a pain in the neck as far as relation to early entry. If you have the VIP thing will you even have to worry about early entry? I don't care about getting on the closest rows of the VIP section. My goal for 2016 was to be near the soundboard somewhere. In August, after a series of bizarre events, I ended up in upper GA, way up, and I still had the time of my life, so I don't care where I end up in the VIP section because there isn't a bad seat in that place. I'd really like to be able to chill out in the lot all afternoon and not worry about early entry.

Click the link, select the tix you want, and then use AMEX to pay for said tix.

I have done the Amex presales before with other concerts, not MMJ.  Usually you just click the link they give (which they posted here http://mymorningjacket.com/events/359623 ) and you just have to pay with your Amex for it to go through.  That's how it worked last time I did one at least.

Scored two, 2 day Golden VIP's!  I was logged in right at 10am.  Thought i was going to get screwed as the website kept asking my age and wouldn't let me processes tickets, and there was no input for age or birthday....  The ticker was still going, so i refreshed page and lucky still kept my tickets and order went through..... thought i might have gotten screwed by refreshing, glad it worked ok for me.

Think the singed posters (MMJ Red Rocks posters are always bad ass, some of the best i have and i collect a lot of gig posters) and soundboard viewing make VIP worth the price, which i find very reasonable.  I not a huge fan of showing up early to shows as i'm pretty busy with work and family...

Pretty excited, seen MMJ 3 times at RR and they always killed it!  Missed the last two day Red Rocks event as i was at Lollapalooza.

So anyone want to speculate if we get a different set every night?  Or maybe a full album played?  Guessing so on different sets, i know the last time the played at the Rocks two nights in a row they ended up playing like 60 songs, and no repeats!  Will be good times!

I had the same problem. When I set up the account it said birthday was optional, but I put in the month and day. It wouldn't let me enter the year so figuring it was optional, I just skipped that part, and made sure to check the box asking if I was over 13 or whatever. Then when I continued it kept asking my age but there was no way to go back and enter the year.  :huh: I refreshed a couple of times but by then the two day VIP was gone.

I ended up going back in and grabbing two for the 2nd night though,and happy about that but I didn't see an option to continue shopping. I checked out and went back in for night one but my code was invalid. Evidently you could only use it once. All in all a bit of everything for me. Some frustration and some good news. Definitely happy to have at least one of the nights.  :beer:

Same thing, i did not enter in birthday when signing up for a account as it was optional and i also checked that i was over 13... and was kind of moving fast as i didn't know how much time i had....  some feed back this website needs to have, nobody should have lost tickets due to this error.  I got lucky.  I was thinking about doing VIP for night two only, and getting regular tickets for first night, but then decided to spend xmas cash i hopefully get!  Depending on how early you get to RR, and assuming we will get early in, you should get a great spot for night one.  Just plan on getting to RR early, the first 24 rows of ga can fill up fast.  Once that is full you have to sit in top ga, which is not were i want to be (imho), if windy sound can distort at Red Rocks when sitting in top half of venue.

can someone who was at the show in august give me a good estimate as to how many roll callers were in the early entry line?

this will be my first time doing a show with roll call, first at RR (really trying my hardest to get close), and will not be in denver till around 1130 AM Sat.

so that means i gotta have my gf save our spot in the roll call line, and then run and get the tix from will call? aahhh!!

I'm glad VIP allows us to walk in later and still get a great seat after an extended tailgate.  People seem really concerned with will call at RR...is it a really slow process at the window?

I don't know how slow it is but the problem the time I was there was it wasn't open early enough. We got there in 2011 to tailgate and start an early entry line around 1:00 and I don't think Will Call opened til around 3:00-4:00. Fortunately we had a bunch of people there and had made friends with everyone else in line so when people had to leave the line to go get their tix, it wasn't a big deal to get back in line where they were originally. If I wasn't doing a VIP, I would definitely just do either the Amex or general sale to have tix in hand, and not worry about Will Call.

I'm with you on the option of going in later with the VIP as being a real nice perc. We can go in at early entry with RC friends if we want or hang back and go in later.  I like having the option to choose.  :thumbsup:

I'm waiting on CID to get back to me in regards to the issue, but was just curious if anyone else had been charged twice.

That is good to know.  I am also assuming that it will not be an issue for one person to leave the early entry line to pick up tickets from will call when it opens if both of us get in line early.

It would be nice if they just opened will call earlier in the day to cut down on lines.  Does anyone recall when will call opened for the show in August?  Had the early entry line already formed prior to will call opening?

I can't speak to this show as it seems to me the preferred seating would be GA as that's closer. In past Amex presales  I've done for say the Beacon or MSG the preferred did have better seats, and sometimes they wanted a higher than basic Amex card to access it but that doesn't seem to be the case here. Using any Amex card should be fine.

It's possible the preferred seating they're offering for this might be the first couple of rows in reserved.

unable to purchase Sunday tickets after purchasing Saturday?  when did this shit get so frustrating!?

Same for me.  Something is up.  It now says pre sale starts at 1:00 PST.


i'm seeing 10 AM PST - 45 minutes from now.  guess i'll try again then. 

so Sunday was not working for anyone?  i thought it wouldn't allow me because i already bought Saturday tickets.

I was able to get in for both on the AMEX.  After I bought my saturday tix, I went back and changed to Sunday.  Never had to give a phone number on the back, just my card number and security number from the front.

Preferred gives access to the better reserved seats.

The regular AMEX link works fine, bought GA for Sat.

Trying to get some solid reserved seats for Sat.

Still on the phone with AXIS to see what the passcode is for the AMEX Preferred. I have an AMEX preferred card, so not sure what the bottleneck is

Anyone get the AMEX Preferred pre-sale to work?

For AMEX presale, I was able to get both Saturday and Sunday. 

Saturday I purchased while logged into Rollcall - which was then preventing me from accessing Sunday.

To get Sunday, just close browser, do not relog into Roll call, and just go to AXS site - worked for me.

And NO, while it is tempting, do not buy the disability tix unless your disability requires them!

I've been to the venue many times, and you do need to be careful about sitting up high if the winds are high. Too many times I've arrived late after tailgating, and got stuck up high with bad sound due to wind.  If weather is clear, then the top half is not a bad option, as you get a better view of the surrounding area/denver/mountains.  Seen some good fireworks and lighting shows up at the top of Red Rocks.

And getting close to the band is cool too, but you do lose the amazing view.  i would say rows 1-20 have a very restricted view of surroundings due to stage and the monoliths (huge red rocks surrounding the venue).  20-50 is pretty good mix of seeing the band and the view beyond RR.  past row 60 is just too far imho to see a good band you really like.

Yes, you could do this.  But in my opinion it's kind of a shitty thing to do.  It's super easy to score GA seats, so if you want GA just buy GA.  If you buy reserved and go to GA, provided it's sold out, you are one more person competing for a spot in that area that shouldn't be in that area to begin with.  Multiply that by a couple hundred and now everyone who bought GA originally has lost anywhere from one to a couple hundred places in line when it comes to getting the best spot.

Reminds me of a Jack White show at the Masonic Temple in Detroit a few years ago. People with reserved seats flooded the GA floor and by the time I got to the venue, the floor was hundreds of people over capacity and ushers had no idea how to handle it. I asked what I was supposed to do with my floor tickets and they just shrugged and said "sit anywhere, man!" Ended up rocking the whole show standing up on my seats in the very last row of the orchestra. Fun times.

I'm with you on this Stevie, and the opposite scenario wouldn't be cool with me either. What if people bought reserved so they didn't have to deal with ga, and found people in their seats who bought ga's and didn't belong there?  Not cool either IMO.

I think there's plenty of both types of seating to go around, and people should buy what they want, and stay in that area. Unfortunately we all know that'll never be the case 100% of the time but it would be great if people at least were considerate enough to respect others who are where they're supposed to be.

Don't mind going in early to snag a decent seat, even if I am in the upper center of GA

Curious to know how early I should go in?

Don't want to walk in an hour or two before the show to find that I am the last one trying to find my GA seat

I am only Roll-Call digital right now, so don't have the laminate...

Free beer / Tailgate / Smoke for anyone who wants to save me and my wife 2 seats :wink:

My crew and I did GA in August, got to the venue about 2 hour prior to will call opening and just tailgated it up. It seemed like the Roll Call early admission was kinda late starting, I recall only getting in about 5 minutes before non RC got in, and we got some pretty killer seats.  That being said, there really truly isn't a bad seat in the house!

This past summer, I got there about a half hour before early entry was supposed to go in.  The line was pretty long but I still managed to get in the first 24 rows.  It was strange, though, there was no VIP to my knowledge last time, yet they still had a massive chunk of rows 5 through 25 (give or take) roped off.  Wasn't like that in 2012. 

Quite honestly, as long as you get there for early entry you will be pleased with your seat.

While I hope there is no opener, and we get 3 hours of MMJ each night, if there is one my guesses are: Futurebirds or Ray Lamontague.

But, I think if they go the opener route than they should def go BIG:

I'd be very cool with 1st night Alabama Shakes and 2nd night Band of Horses.

Or a 2 night reunion of Monsters of Folk as openers w special guest Bob Weir.

Openers

They COULD have two bigger names lined up to open each night but to me it seems if that were the case they would have announced them right away to ensure fast ticket sales. 

Or

Maybe they held off on announcing them to give Jacket fans the first shot at getting tickets.

Or

Maybe they are waiting to see how sales go on Jacket alone and will get a bigger name if they need to spike the sales. 

Time will tell.  Im excited to see how fast they can sell out two nights all on their own.

According to the axs.com site, GA on Saturday is already sold out....but reserved is still available.  Sunday both are still available.  I sure hope MMJ can get two full sell outs without any opener announcement help!

Educated guess makes me say no opener.  They would have announced them with the show announcement.  I hope I'm right... "An Evening With" is much preferred.

I have no doubt these shows will sell out. Considering they're still 5 months away, and it's a tricky time of year for some and their cash flow, I think they're well on their way to sell outs.

I know this is their board and full of fans but to have a Roll Call at near 60 this close to onsale and so far ahead of the shows is a great sign towards selling out both nights,IMO.

It will definitely sell out if there are no other shows on the horizon.  I think that's the key, although it will probably happen even if other gigs are scheduled, given the growing legend of them playing at Red Rocks.  I can't wait to experience it myself, up close and personal!  Yesterday I booked the whole deal for me and the Ms - flights, hotel and rental car (yes, one that will hold 4 of you in the back seat if needed :grin:).  Remember, it's Memorial Day Weekend, so things may book up and get more expensive soon.

BTW, it's great to see a lot of new names joining the forum recently and posting and getting on the Red Rocks Roll Call :thumbsup:   Welcome, and see you all in May :beer:

I'm with you there man.  :thumbsup: Got tix, car, and hotel squared away but holding off on my flight for now. Gotta see how much time off exactly I'll be able to swing. Have some extra time on both ends for the car and hotel built in to enjoy CO for a bit if I can swing the time.

That's what $3.50 gets you... A ticket or two in a small envelope sent first class mail after a computer-generated printout.  I like getting them early, but shouldn't the nearly $16 fee have been enough to cover the cost of mailing?  Hell, they charged $3.50 for will call!  I love when $45 tickets cost $64.20...

No argument there John.  :smiley:

Definitely sucks paying $3.50 for having them mailed but I'll take that every time over paying the same price for Will Call.

I don't even want to get into fees but I like how some bands do it. When I saw Steely Dan at the Beacon a few times, all the fees were included in the price. I think they were listed at $99 and that's what I paid at checkout. Never even saw how much of that was towards fees even though I know some of it was. I still ended up paying  the same amount no doubt but it just sat better with me not seeing all the fees or like you said, seeing a $45 ticket cost almost $65 when all is said and done.

Also, how easy will it be to get close? As in, first 30ish rows.

GA is row 1-24 and 61-69.  You need to be at venue when gates open to get rows 1-24.  If you really want good, like center, rows 1-15 seats you need to get in line before doors open.  For getting secondary tickets, i would wait till week of show.  With two shows, i'm guessing there are going to be some tickets floating around.  And you may even find some at list on this board.

Agreed. Please dont buy tickets off stubhub, esp for a little extra. I would wait to see what you can find as it gets closer, esp here. I know its nerve-wracking to wait until day of show, but I'm sure there will be some in the lot as well. If I still have an extra I will sell it to you face + fees.

Well speaking just for myself, old habits are hard to break and I just like having an actual "hard" ticket in hand as opposed to a printed out paper one. I don't really even collect stubs, just like the ticket better, and while I would prefer free shipping, the $3.50 isn't gonna break me or cause me to not get it.

I guess that makes sense. All I know is will call is very risky for those of us traveling half way across country. No one is traveling all the way across the country now that I think about it. A lot can happen in the next five months, and not being able to sell your ticket if needed is nuts.

Got RS for both nights never been to Red Rocks so super pumped. Got row 32 one night and 40 the other are these good? I've heard that there really isn't a bad seat in the house but I've also heard you don't want to be to high.

I was in upper GA last year and I still had a blast. It was a little windy and I've heard people complain that the sound is shit up near the top but I honestly didn't notice. The sound was massive even up there. View sucked for viewing the band, but view was great for viewing the world.

After that evening, I figured reserved seating would be ideal - you get a better view of the band, and you don't have to put up with GA bullshit. Sounds like you got some pretty good rows - closer to the stage than not. You'll have a great time!

steamboat is absolutely amazing, but is a good 3-4 hours from denver. if you can do it, go for it!

Although not a ski town, my personal favorite is boulder. its like a cleaner, hippy version of new orleans! easy access to rocky mtn national park and only 45 min north of denver.

You might check out Salida for a good river trip and not-ski-area type place, an easy jaunt down 285 from Evergreen. It's a very cool little town on the Arkansas River.

The weather is very unpredictable and a lot of the rivers depend on snow melt so later in the summer is better for many rivers.  I'm hoping a mountain is still open for skiing...... Arapahoe Basis, which isn't too far from RR, stays open into July if there is enough show.  Skiing followed by MMJ show would be a dream day for me.

Starting to consider Red Rocks.
Couple of questions for those who have been before (i'd be coming from Boston).

Is there anywhere to camp nearby? Would that be a crazy idea? Not sure if it would still be too cold in May.
And if it is too cold, is there still skiing that late in the season? Obviously its dependent on snow, but I guess is it typical for late May/Early June?

It can snow in May, seen it snow as late as graduation weekend (typically the weekend before Memorial day).  It has snowed at least 2 mothers day weekends in my 8 years, i live in se Denver, far from the foothills which is colder and sees more snow, which is where Red Rocks is and your camping options.  Its hard to say.  I would say 50% chance of freezing weather at night.  Then again, i could be perfect 50 degrees at night, but count on at least lower 40 degrees at night, at least.  It would be hard for me to count on camping as an option unless you are "tuff".  I'll let someone else talk about camping options, there are some fairly close, but you will be driving to venue for sure, nothing that close.  A-Basin is probably your best bet for skiing in May, they can stay open till the 4th of July depending on snow.

Salida is a cool town, go to the brew fest every year in July.  The river will not be in prime season for rafting in May.  And Monarch will be closed for skiing in april, which is only 30 miles away.  I would avoid mountain towns during this time period, not a whole lot going on, good rates but kind of boring.  Its a transition period, no snow and too cold and wet to do anything else.

per email i got today, Fruit Bats are opening on Saturday, Barr Brothers on Sunday.  Anyone know about these bands?

Fruit Bats opened the SF run. They were pretty good (shout out to Keyboard Dad!) but I'm not all that stoked to see them again.

I just deleted my Facebook, at least for a month. The fan page is full of newbies who wold do well to read the catalog that is this forum. And a private group that I am a member of is now full of people I do not know.

Do people typically drive to RR? Coming from Mass I can't see anybody willing to play DD for a MMJ Red Rocks show in my group.
It'd be sweet if we got a party bus filled with MMJ fans. That kind of thing come together around here often?

Does anybody know how the view is from the far right at red rocks? Found some seats in reserved row 25 but the seat numbers are 10-15, I'm thinking they might be too far right but never been to red rocks to know for sure.
Contemplating just going GA for night 1 but would rather tailgate then wait in lines for a good spot. Realistically what time do you have to get in line to not be stuck at the top?
I have dead center row 36 for night 2 which I'm thrilled about, just want to make sure I get night 1 right since this will be the red rocks experience I've been waiting for since 1996!

View of surrounding will be fine.  Stage view would be just ok imho.  I like to be in the middle or 20 seats or so from the middle.  Row 25 is not bad, pretty much the first or second row for reserved seating.  I would buy them for list and not much more.  I really do think tickets will be floating around the week of show.

Realistically what time do you need to get in line or walk into the venue without being stuck in the back GA section? Say opener goes on at 7:30 and MMJ 9:00. Do you need to be in the venue by the start of the opener?
I realize this is all hypothetical, just hoping to base opinions on previous experiences

Been to RR about 30 times, I live in Denver.  Mostly MMJ, Wilco, Jack White type bands, popular shows sometimes sold out, sometimes close to being sold out.  Due to kids and work, I only buy reserved seating at Red Rocks shows, I just don't have a lot of time in the day to get to venue early.

You need to be in line, or heading towards the line when the doors open at 630pm.  And Expect a 20 + minute hike, mostly uphill, sometimes steep, from parking lot.  If you show up when the opening band is starting, add 15-20 minutes in line at gates.  And will be hard to get lower GA, might luck out if you are solo, or have someone holding a seat for you.

Thanks for this! I am definetely starting to feel that reserved is the way to go at RR, especially for my group who doesn't want to get in line at noon just to get a good spot up front.
Is there a seperate line for folks with reserved seats or is it one line for all?
I wish the system was backwards and reserved was up front and GA was in the mid-back rows but it is what it is, i'm just happy I finally get to go.

Post by: Crispy on Jan 26, 2016, 11:41 AM
If you do go with reserved seats, I'd recommend parking in the upper north lot, as you can then enter from the top and go down and not have to do that hefty hike up. That lot will probably be full though if you're thinking of getting there after gates open. There are no separate lines by ticket type at the various entry points, except for the Roll Call early entry line, which I assume will again come from the upper south lot.

Thank you for the feedback here. Even though i'll be traveling from Boston I will be holding out for better opportunities for the Saturday show. Tickets are sky high right now and its absurd you dont get seat numbers for reserved tickets on ticket agency sites, no way i'm going to pay 2X's face and be on the far left or far right.
Out of curiosity, what is up with the Handicapped seating? Is this enforced whatsoever? just checking stubhub or vividseats i see handicapped seats in the row 1 for $400+ each. I'd assume Red Rocks staff kicks you out if you aren't disabled but after watching the MMJ RR show from last summer I didnt see one person in a wheelchair in the front row. I guess if you're willing to pay $400-500 to sit there you should be able to stay.. but man it just seems wrong to me on so many levels.
Title: Re: Red Rocks 5/28-29/2016
Post by: talltyson on Jan 26, 2016, 09:56 PM
Not sure about the Handicapped seats, and how they regulate the seats.  I would be nervous buying them and not know what will happen.  I'm guessing there has to be some kind of check and balance, but who knows.

Like Crispy said, the upper north parking lot is ideal, and i'm guessing the line is shorter, as its hard to get there unless you get there early and get a parking spot at Upper North Parking lot.  I have never been early enough to get to the top parking lot, so guessing you need to be get into park early, many years past i would get to venue early, and still the Upper North Parking would be full.  Per website parking is open 3 hours before show starts, and i'm not sure how they manage parking, as the park is open to the public for free in the mornings and early afternoon on a show night for visitors not attending a show.

Map of park.
http://redrocksonline.com/images/wygwam/RR_2014_brochure_TR.pdf

You show up early, you can park anywhere.  If you show up right before opening band starts, you will be parking in Upper South Lot, or possibly Lower South #1 or #2.  Upper South Lot is not too bad, but still a hike.  Lower South is a long hike, like i said 20 minutes from line.

Another map, close up of venue only.
http://redrocksonline.com/images/wygwam/RR_2014_brochure_FB.pdf

There are three entrances.  All open at the same time, all first come first serve in line, no matter your ticket.  Now they are probably having early in for Roll Call members, so members get early in, i cannot speak of that, speaking in general....  Top Circle entrance, which places you at the visitors center, and top of venue, you can really only get there if you get to venue early and park in Upper North Lot, or like hiking awhile.  If you cannot get to Upper Lot you will enter South Ramp entrance or North Trail entrance.  South Ramp entrance is most definitely the "main entrance", count on a long line.  Recently, although i'm getting to venue when first band is starting, North Trail entrance seems to have a much shorter line, and really not out of the way Vs. South Ramp, if you are parked in Lower South #1 or #2.  Kind of a secret, that many people don't know about, as people follow the signs to the South Ramp/Main Entrance, also that is where the mass of people are heading, so you get heard mentality.  So my little tip is to go in North Trail entrance.

Off hwy 93.  By the number 2.  And expect a wait time if you are showing up when opening band starts or just before.  Then count 10 minutes for parking, then 20 minute hike to line, and then who knows, 10-20 minutes at line.  Just get to venue early if you can!

Maybe I'm the last one to discover this but I've been checking on reserved seats for a while to see what gets released and just saw the "AXS Premium" choice for RR tix.  Last night they had dead center, row 25 for about 50% more than GA with fees included for Sun night.  Sat was significantly higher, so for now I'm sticking with my GA tix for that night. So, naturally, I snagged the two reserved for Sun. :thumbsup:
Title: Re: Red Rocks 5/28-29/2016
Post by: talltyson on Jan 26, 2016, 11:56 PM
that sounds like AXS is scalping tickets, or their secondary re-seller site.  Reserved seating is only $5-$10 more per ticket then GA, although hard to get good reserved seats unless you get lucky and buy right when tickets are released.  I'm good at getting tickets, and usually cannot score that good unless i'm a fan club member of a band and get a special presell.  Dead center row 25 is about the best you can get for reserved, so paying the surplus is probably worth it.

Is is possible to walk/hike from the area where the early entry line will be located to the will call location?  I am just wondering if folks will want to get in the early entry line before will call opens and how difficult it will be to send someone to pick up tickets from will call once the window opens.  I don't know that we will necessarily want to get in the early entry line that early but I had not considered the possibility that the will call location would be so far from the early entry line location. 

Also, we are considering getting to the park in the morning and just exploring the area earlier in the day before the show on Saturday.  Will we be able to leave our vehicle where we parked when we arrived in the morning?  I'm wondering if they clear the parking lots in the afternoon before the majority of the concert traffic starts arriving. 

Thanks to everyone providing information regarding the RR logistics in this thread.  It is very helpful!

Those row 25 dead center tix were only $26 more (all fees included) than the less desirable reserveds I've been seeing all along and for sale elsewhere.  Given what I'm paying for plane, hotel, car, etc. this is a drop in the bucket.

There is no chance my group will be driving either night. I'm hoping that the party bus posted on an earlier thread by Mentos works out if not we'll be looking into other options.
If others are interested in getting a party bus let me know.. again with the assumption that the other one doesn't get off the ground.

I might be willing to take your reserved for GA, i'll shoot you a PM.

Is is possible to walk/hike from the area where the early entry line will be located to the will call location?  I am just wondering if folks will want to get in the early entry line before will call opens and how difficult it will be to send someone to pick up tickets from will call once the window opens.  I don't know that we will necessarily want to get in the early entry line that early but I had not considered the possibility that the will call location would be so far from the early entry line location. 

Also, we are considering getting to the park in the morning and just exploring the area earlier in the day before the show on Saturday.  Will we be able to leave our vehicle where we parked when we arrived in the morning?  I'm wondering if they clear the parking lots in the afternoon before the majority of the concert traffic starts arriving. 

Thanks to everyone providing information regarding the RR logistics in this thread.  It is very helpful!


It's possible.  12 minute hike, up and down through the hills.
Route via Google maps.

I do not know how the parking works, always wondered about that

Question for everyone.

We originally bought reserved tickets (four of them) but had two additional people jump on late and got GA. Can reserved people sit in GA? Would people there be willing to trade GA for reserved?
I had a similar question and looking through older posts it looks like it is allowed but frowned upon.
I might be willing to take your reserved for GA, i'll shoot you a PM.

You can do this.  They don't even check your tickets in reserved like most venues, but if you have an issue with someone in your seat it works itself out or you text security.  But if you give up your reserved seats, maybe hook up a fellow board member...  if not, someone else will take your reserved seats if they are open for awhile, so keep it in the family if you can.  Not asking personally as i'm pretty well set for the weekend, but others might be interested!

Re parking: If you can get to a lot at anytime during the day, you can park there and your car can stay there. It's real helpful to use google maps to check out the area and especially the aerial imagery to plan how to get to which lot you want to end up in. I also much prefer the Upper North Lot, and if I wasn't doing the Roll Call early entry from the south lot, that's where I'd go, and line up to go in at that North Trail entrance, as talltyson suggested.
 
I always enjoy tailgating at Red Rocks, and tons of other people do too. I also enjoy having tickets already in hand so I have them mailed to me, but those tailgaters who have to collect tix at will call usually just drive down to the will call office and drive back up with no trouble.

I may be getting rid of my Red Rocks tickets for both nights. I have 2 General Admission tickets for both shows (2 GA for Sat. & 2 GA for Sun.). Since we have had more snow today, and therefore another missed day at work, they will be requiring me to stay on the job for at least another day past where I had felt comfortable making the trip (driving) from Kentucky out to Red Rocks. If we have another snow day, I will definitely be selling all 4 tickets. Right now, it's already looking doubtful we'll be able to make the trip. I'll keep you posted, PaulyC7 and anyone else who may be interested.

Finally getting to see my favorite band in my top bucket list venue... I was wondering if anyone could tell me what their experiences have been on Frontier Airlines? It was literally the only reasonably priced ticket I could find flying into Denver for that weekend. Have heard some horror stories, but damn, they were half the price of any other airline!

Try Southwest.  They are huge in Denver now, one of their main hubs.  I refuse to fly anything else.  No BS with southwest, two free bags.  Frontier has a very bad reputation here since they changed their system a few years ago.  Right down their with Spirit.  You have to pay for any extra.

Southwest out of Greenville, SC (my closest Southwest location) is even more than the others... Frontier (out of Knoxville, TN) is $288 round trip, Southwest is almost $800 round trip. Crazy. My wife and I might just suck it up and tolerate Frontier... it's non stop at least.

I can't blame you!  Just remember it really is ala carte....if you want to check in at the kiosk is costs extra, if you want anything on the plane it is extra, they even charge for carry on bags sometimes.  so just make sure you really look into all the extra fees and hidden costs and be sure you are still saving money vs. flying american or united etc.

Ya guessing not many good options with southwest for you, plus the holiday weekend doesn't help.  Like mentioned, do your research, and make sure you know what you have to pay for and do it before the airport because they charge more at airport.

Spirit is $197 roundtrip LA/Den. southwest is around $500-$600 with worse departure times. Exactly what should I be wary of regarding spirit? I know baggage fees, but it is only a 2 hour non stop flight, so I don't need to buy anything else.

I've flown Spirit a lot in the past and for a short flight you should be fine. My suggestions would be to take your time when booking online as a lot of different pages will pop up with separate charges for pretty much everything. They're what I call an a-la-carte airline. Aside from your actual flight you pay for what you want and pass on what you don't.

You want a seat up front or in an emergency aisle ( extra leg room) you'll pay extra. If you want to bring a carry on or check a bag, you'll pay different fees for each. Whatever you decide to purchase, make sure you do it online when you're buying your flight ticket as it'll be cheaper than doing it at checkin at the airport. I believe now they even charge you to checkin at the airport so checkin online before you get to the airport.

One other tip and it's a biggie IMO, is to try and get the 1st flight out each day you're flying. They're mostly on time but I've found later in the day, especially at night you're much more likely to be delayed.

I've been on Frontier before, and didn't have any problems.  Times and non-stop are key and they have good options to Denver.

I've flown Spirit once before and would only do it as a last resort.  Once you're on the plane, it's all the same.  You think you're getting a good fare but in reality it gets very close in price to other published fares.  On those screens ericm is talking about they charge you for a seat (regardless of extra leg room, exit row, etc).  I thought they were going to charge for the seat belt too.  It's crazy.

Unless they've changed their policy in the last year, I only got charged for a seat if I selected  one in advance. If you wait til arriving at the airport they assigned  you one no charge.  I always paid the extra $5- $8 for an aisle seat so I didn't get stuck in a middle seat. Didn't bother paying the bigger fee for a big front seat or emergency row. I know some areas are more than what I paid but aside from an aisle, I didn't care if I sat in the front or back of the plane.

Not sure if it's because its memorial day weekend but flights to Denver are absurd.
Non stop flights are $500-700 from Boston. I can fly to Europe or anywhere on the west coast for less money.
I've been playing the waiting game since early January but I'm starting to get a bit nervous, prices are only going up. I have also gone through the motions of pretending to book to see how full the flights are and they are like 1/3rd full.

1,155 miles for us from central Kentucky out to Red Rocks (about 17 hours). We're planning on stopping Friday somewhere in Kansas (about 12 hours into it) and finish the last 5 hours on Saturday to get us to our Lakewood/Denver hotel for Saturday and Sunday nights. On the way back home, we'll probably stay at the same small town Kansas hotel (if we liked it enough) and stop in Saint Louis for another night on Tuesday (check out downtown and the Gateway Arch). My wife doesn't drive, so I'll be behind the wheel for the duration. Wish us luck.

I'm driving from Iowa City.  About 12 hours to a friend's family cabin, which is about 90 minutes from Red Rocks.  Probably leaving Thursday afternoon, grabbing a cheap motel about halfway, then arrive early afternoon Friday.  I-80 > I-76 West = easy way...

1,155 miles for us from central Kentucky out to Red Rocks (about 17 hours). We're planning on stopping Friday somewhere in Kansas (about 12 hours into it) and finish the last 5 hours on Saturday to get us to our Lakewood/Denver hotel for Saturday and Sunday nights. On the way back home, we'll probably stay at the same small town Kansas hotel (if we liked it enough) and stop in Saint Louis for another night on Tuesday (check out downtown and the Gateway Arch). My wife doesn't drive, so I'll be behind the wheel for the duration. Wish us luck.

That's a long, flat drive on 70.  Good call stopping in St. Louis!

Thanks for all the good luck wishes for our road trip out west. My car is a 2013 Mazda 3. It gets real good gas mileage. I just hope everything goes smoothly for us, and we don't have any breakdowns or unforeseen problems.

Well we will have be in the country for 2 weeks by show time so technically were only traveling the 4 1/2 hrs from NYC. It will be a somewhat bizarre feeling not having jet lag for this upcoming Jacket experience!

Hays Kansas would be the best option heading west on I70.  Its 5 hours from Denver right on i70.  By far the biggest city with the most options between Salina, ks and Denver  Plenty of hotels, nice, ok, and cheap.  I went to college in Hays.  A small German college town.  If you are into micro beers, Gellas LB Brewery has won many awards for their beer, and the food is your typical gastro pub food with a German food twist on some plates.  Jaliscos is the best mexican food places i've ever been too, and i've been too many.  Sternberg Museum has dinosaurs, dinosaur fossils, 20 + different live rattle snake species and other cool stuff, if you are into that.  Thats about all Hays has to offer, other then drinking a lot of beer, but guessing you won't be spending much time there.  Good stop for what you all are planning IMHO!

Red Rocks Tips:

-WATER WATER WATE.  especially for the flatlanders coming in from out of town

-Bring rain gear and a pair of dry socks. Last year it rained at almost every show from may to early july and a few were monsoons.  Having that extra pair of socks saved my night more than a few times.

-Bring Cash.  Much easier to buy beers in the crowd than waiting in long lines on the sides to use your card

- Give yourself plenty of time to get in the venue.  If you get parked in the lower lots its going to take you a while just to walk up into the line and once you are there it can take a while to get in.

- If you are looking for a hotel,  The Warwick is a great spot in town.  reasonably priced, centrally located, and they have a great roof top pool.  The Curtis, The Magnolia, and the big chain hotels downtown are also a good bet.   

- DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE-  Cops can be brutal up there and with it being a holiday weekend it will be especially bad.   There are cabs and ubers but those can be a pain in the ass.  I would get on one of the many party buses from Denver.  My friends run J2G Live and they have the best service.  Nice Coach Buses.  everyone gets free beer and bottled water in the lots, they have a pre party with free food and drink specials at the bar they leave from (Cervantes this year), and they bend over backwards to hook people up and make sure everyone has a good time.  They give out free sunglasses, have deals with local dispensaries for discounts for their riders,  my friend usually even carries extra gold bold in his bag in case people are in need.

I guess I'll cross post my post from the other RR thread here as well...

I'll agree with everything capefan said, with the HUGE exception of j2glive.  One of the owners (Gary) is a major A-hole of the most epic proportions. I would not recommend their services to anyone. Make alternate plans!  As you can see capefan joined the forum just to pimp this service. Consider this a Jacket forum PSA.


...for a good laugh, here's a fun clip of said A-hole getting punked on April Fools by a local Denver radio station, after he apparently threw a fit in DIA.

Went to the MMJ show last Aug. at RR but sat in Reserved. Going with a group that has reserved seats and me and buddy have GA (non-role call) :cry:. I have a digital membership only.

With that said, I will be in the 2nd wave of GA entries behind Roll Call members, so curious to know what time I will have to be in there and how accommodating GA seat savers are if I want to get up for a beer or wait in line for a poster?...

My plan is to avoid the worst case scenario, sitting on the very top GA section by being in line before gates open BUT on the flipside, I know I will be tempted to tailgate with my friends who have reserved seats and ultimately want to maximize tailgate time with them and other fellow Jacket-Heads.

So my RR newb question is, what experience does anyone have with GA at RR, especially non-roll call members. What time to wait in line to get in lower bowl area? (Rows: 20-25) is fine with me... If its just me saving my seat and my buddies...can I expect to keep my seats if I need to get up from them for a brief beer run etc.? - I know this is a subjective question...just after waiting since I got these tix on the pre-sale and wanting everything to go as smooth as possible!

Driving from KC (Craft brews, Altitude Golfing, MMJ at RR x 2) = BEST MEMORIAL DAY EVER

TIA

Interesting. I know that thre was also a different VIP poster for Ween a few months ago in Denver. Those I think were also CID packages. I wonder it they just produce a separate poster.

I remember reading that the details for the vip  package said it would include one poster. So I guess this implies there will not be a different poster for each night? This doesn't really answer your question, but take it as you will.

I took that as 1 poster per each VIP package per night. So if you got two VIP's each person gets a poster.  I'd bet there will be different posters for each night. There were two different ones in 12.

I'm curious if the cid poster will be the same ones as at the merch tables. My gut says yes but who knows if they commissioned their own?

The only difference between Vegas VIP and Vegas "regular" poster was the color..... same exact size, graphics, etc.  And I think it was just the background color (red VIP and white "regular") that varied.  There was no difference between night 1 and night 2 poster.  In other words, the regular was identical with both dates and same colors regardless of whether it was purchased night 1 or 2.  That said, Red Rocks this year could definitely be different.

Unfortunately C and I aren't arriving into Denver until Saturday afternoon. Whirlwind 48 hour trip, so we'll likely hit up the Sunday game. Wish we could make into town on Friday but no dice.  Hopefully I can buy you a beer on this trip Maggie, still grateful for your help with the N1 terminal 5 poster! Still framed on our wall!

I'm sure you guys are on it, but the rooftop area seats look to be the best place in Coors field for a group of partygoers to get together.

Still on the fence on going GA or reserved.   In 2012 me and wife did GA and got great seats for night 1.  We got there right around when the gates opened.  And we were like 10-15 rows up.  Will it be about the same or would we need to get there earlier?

In 2012 i got there about 1 hour 45 minutes early and ended up in the 4th row center.  Last year I got there right before early entry doors time, and i ended up in the 16th row but off to the right.  They had roped off a very big chunk of the left-middle section this time which really dug into the prime seat availability.  I would highly advise getting there earlier this time if you want a prime spot.

So if doors are at 6:30, Roll Call entry should be around 6PM?  So if we get there say between 3-4PM we should be okay? I just don't want to spend my whole day there, since it is our first trip to CO.

Roped off section is VIP, next to/right below the Soundboard.  I think it takes up about 5-6 rows right in the middle (say rows 6-12?). We got there about an hour before early entry and still got row 4 but there were way more early entry roll callers compared to 2012.  There are worse places to hang than the Red Rocks parking lot on a sunny summer day

Do you have a sober driver?  If so, rental cars are cheap. I have a ride for Saturday but rented a car for Sunday for $25 (it's that cheap if renting from location that is NOT the DEN airport).

Walter, I'm staying with the Petersons in Denver and plan to drive.  However, I will likely be going on the early side, whatever they want to do.  Not sure who, if anyone, I'll be taking.  I can take up to 4 people.  I can't drink much, with all my meds, so I'll be a DD.

my name is in fact gary.  not the gary from j2g live though.   crazy how two people could have the same name. 

either way I wonder what your issue is with J2G.   both time I posted to give people a heads up about their service you immediately followed up with some nasty accusations.  Did gary steal your girl or something?  Were you late to their bus and got left behind?  what gives?

Regardless anyone looking for a ride to the shows would be wise to check out J2G Live.   Anyone who has actually ridden with them or knows those guys will attest that they are by far the best option out there.

i see.  you are one of those guys who takes the internet waaaaay too seriously.    simply came by to let some fans know about a great way to get to the show.  Especially on a holiday weekend it is important not to drink and drive and taking one of these party buses is a fun way to stay safe and have fun.   There are a bunch of options out there and I have ridden on some of the shittier buses in denver in the past.  wanted to help people avoid that mistake and help support my friends business at the same time.   what a terrible human being that must make me. 

I love MMJ.  What would you like to discuss? The last few times I saw them at Red Rocks were beyond epic.   I think this run is going to top those.  Calling a Purple Rain to close out the weekend.  Are we good now?

Wife and I may be looking for rides to/from Denver as well, but really not looking to get to the venue until closer to show time.
Walter, I'm staying with the Petersons in Denver and plan to drive.  However, I will likely be going on the early side, whatever they want to do.  Not sure who, if anyone, I'll be taking.  I can take up to 4 people.  I can't drink much, with all my meds, so I'll be a DD.

Thanks JY, I'll definitely keep that in mind and be in touch if we may need help. If anything, possibly just a ride back into Denver after the show.

Drove from Nashville to Atlanta to see My Morning Jacket.  Amazing show.
Woke up on Sunday morning and bought my plane ticket to Denver.

Band was pure fire. It truly, felt like a headline setÖa set that can compete with anyone on the circuit right now.

As the festival scene is struggling to find headliners, I think My Morning Jacket just confirmed they are a viable option going forward.

I did the same. What an amazing show! They are Headliner Status and should be the biggest band in the country right now. That show was to definitely prove if you haven't seen us before you have been missing out.  Will be a totally different show for Red Rocks.

j2g live is running buses.  comes with coach bus rides, free beer, free food, dispensary discounts, and a bunch of other stuff.

Be careful though.  its run by an asshole who has asshole friends who act like assholes by telling fans of a band they like that the service exists.   :cool:

http://j2glive.com/may-28-29-my-morning-jacket/

If that doesn't do it for you CID is also running buses.  I would definitely not use Bus to Show, Quixotes, or anyone else.  J2G and CID are the only buses I have been on that I would call well run or organized.  I know J2G will give you the most bang for your buck but haven't ridden with CID in CO so don't know what their deal is. 

Regardless of who you ride with find a safe and sober ride.  Its sketchy as is driving home from Red Rocks on a normal weekend.  Doing in on a holiday weekend is asking for trouble.  You can Uber up there too but it will probably be more expensive and you will probably need to leave during the encore if you want any chance at getting one in a timely fashion.

i wouldn't recommend riding with them.  If you don't want to go with j2g i'd suggest CID. 

B2S has a reputation for showing up late, over selling buses, having buses breakdown and being pretty unorganized.  I've experienced all of the above with them before. 

There is even a fox31 investigative report airing tonight that  looks to be calling out bus to show for being unsafe and operating without the proper insurance or licenses.   Can't really say how accurate that report is but After a few nightmare experiences with them and seeing their buses struggle to get in and out of the lot with kids literally hanging out the window bc its so over sold it wouldn't surprise me. 

B2S is certainly the cheapest option but you get what you pay for.

As an outsider looking in "busgate" is quite comical.

You got one guy claiming to being a friend of a company, and looking out for everyone's best interests around here. All 10 of his posts are a plug for the bus company that he supposedly doesn't work for.. with a random MMJ reference thrown in the mix here or there for the sake of validity.

Then you got others who are just hammering the company.

I donít have any ponies in this race, but as a member of the jury I think Capefanís plugs are starting to become quite desperate.

Either way 9 Days to go!!!!

Thank goodness I'm going with Barry's Really Good Party Bus Service, and not taking my chances with some fly-by-night outfit that some actual MMJ fan told me about on the internet. I heard about Barry in an ad on the back page of Busted!, he's totally legit.

If you mean the posters that are included in the VIP, I'm sure you could just leave them in your car after picking up your tix and merch at sign in. If you're talking about a poster from the merch tables inside, then bring a tube.  :beer:

there seem to be plenty of tickets popping up. just check the ticket section of this forum. Mobility is pretty easy at red rocks, either GA to reserved or vice versa, especially for just one person. The bench seats are so wide it's pretty easy to fit another person in your area. I've seen a bunch of shows at RR and it's always been easy to move around. You'll be fine.

When we went to the MMJ concert in Aug last year it seemed by mid-show everyone moved down closer to front GA. It seemed like everyone was in their proper seats to start the show and by the end everyone had moved around closer to stage

Will the back GA be filled before the opener starts? I have a group of about 5 and was wondering when we should get in. We are not trying to get into lower tier GA but try to get a good spot for back GA. Thanks.

Ya last year I had reserved in the Row 50-something, by the 3rd or 4th song of MMJ, our row was nearly empty, everyone had moved up. My friends asked if I wanted to move up and I said hailllll nah, got all the room in the world back here to dance my arse off.

It might've been, I can't remember, but I just meant most people in our row I guess had moved down towards the front. I just remember us having a lot more room to move around towards the back after MMJ had started.

I think it "sort of" sold out last year. Tix were available well into July, and then they weren't, a few weeks before the show. Then a bunch of tickets (a couple hundred?) showed up on Stubhub, all at the same price and at a significant markup, that I think were put there by AXS.
 
Different story this year though. As for the original question, it will fill up, but I think you should be able to get a good spot in the upper GA long after gates open. Come see the openers!

I already posted this in the poster thread, but FYI.....I reached out to CID about the poster that comes with the VIP package to see if it will be different than the one being sold and this was their response.

"Thanks for reaching out! The poster for our package will be different from what the venue offers and is exclusive to our VIP packages along with that our merchandise poster will be signed by the band!"

If past years at RR are any indication they'll be different merch table posters for each night. My only question is if the VIP's will be different each night.

South Gate ramp entrance for early entry. Early entry begins at 6:15 PM.

Never done early entry before, but how does this line not wind up just being THE line where everyone lines up? Seems like a potential clusterfuck to me.

They will be different lines and there will be people that check periodically to make sure if you're in early entry line, you have a laminate.

No. Bring a printed out confirmation of your up to date RC Deluxe membership or have it available to bring up on your phone. That and an ID and you'll be fine. Might not even have to show the ID but you might get asked for it.  :beer:

What's up all?  Coming down from the great white north.  Had a last minute cancellation so we have an extra ticket for both nights.  If anyone knows anyone looking to go to the show, please let me know. 

Night 1 - row 46 (seat 5)
Night 2 - row 34 (seat 47)

I have hard copy tickets.  we're staying in Golden, Co and get into town on Friday (27th).  Just looking for face value $65 (US).  Haven't had much luck online, seeing as it's a single ticket.  But if you know someone who wouldn't mind sitting with a couple of stoned Canadians, hit me up

Yes. I had to cancel at the last minute last year. The person that I sold them to had to bring a copy  of my drivers license, a copy of my receipt, and a letter written by me authorizing someone else to pick them up. Wonderful Union warned me that they couldn't guarantee it since they weren't running the booth, but there ended up being no issues to my knowledge.

I would personally not look at the first night's setlist under any circumstances.  There's really no good that can come of it other than to satisfy your curiosity.  Other than that I can only think of negative outcomes.

i had this dilemma for the Beacon shows. I was going to the last two and had to decide on whether to check the first two nights sets. I looked and was bummed that I knew I was going to miss War->IWSYS but, it's not like it affected anything in the end. It did give me an idea of the epicness I would see those last two nights tho!

Go in totally surprised. Keep yourself guessing what is next. I have even refrained lately from listening to Throwback or any of there latest live shows on Youtube, just so I wont spoil anything for myself - not that I could not listen to them everyday / allday.

I'm a first timer there as well but already did a lot of looking into this....looks like front GA does fill up quickly, especially with Roll Call early entry people trying to get spots up there (cough me cough) but I have read a lot about how the upper GA area is still great.  If you want to get up close and don't have early entry, I would say you should get in line and get in there right at doors so that you have the best chance.

GO regardless. Miracle someone in the lot and make some friends. Or come in just before band and jam/dance/head bang with everyone else. Feel the vibes. Trust me nobody will be wondering what your doing. I've been to a bunch of concerts solo - always fun! See you there!

I think the post above has the set list correct up until touch me part two which transitioned into a partial Cobra and then Mahgeeta to close.  I don't think there was anything between Cobra and Mahgeeta but could be wrong.

Amazing show. Minor technical difficulties with the sound on the first few songs, but damn, those boys were tight tonight.

The one thing I thought was odd was that Jim was not talkative at all. In fact, he never introduced Johnny Quaid to the audience. I was excited and telling everyone nearby who he was but I know most people were confused who the mystery guitarist was...

Anyone have a poster pic?
Not yet since it's rolled up in a tube, but appears to be Guy Burwell prints for the regular edition - one for each day. Really pretty red, white, and blue drawing of Red Rocks for the Saturday edition (440 print run?). I assume Sunday's will be the same graphic but a different color. The VIP poster looks like a Clinton Reno. Also very cool, but more colorful and obviously more cartoony. The VIP poster is for both nights, signed by all members of the band, and was a run of 550.

Forgive me if I am off on anything above. Briefly glanced at the VIP poster I received and was not able to snag a regular edition - they sold out very quickly.

First ever Red Rocks experience and it was nothing short of spectacular. They were definitely working through some sound issues for the first three or four songs. The set really shifted into the next gear when they absolutely slayed State of the Art's closing jam. So epic. If you were sitting in the back, like I was, the sound started swirling quite a bit for the final half hour due to the wind, so I'm looking forward to being up front tonight. Other highlights: JOHNNY QUADE, the fireworks on the horizon during Golden, Tyrone, Knockin on Heaven's Door. Jim seemed a little subdued tonight though. Not a lot of banter.

I got in line ~4:15. The line was already long and mostly early entry (there was no specific line for ga or for early entry). Around 5 a lady from the venue came down the line and told everybody that at 5:30 she would come down the line again and separate out the early entry people from the regular GA people. Well, at 5:30 people way up front started to split into 2 lines but the lady never came back in the line like she said. So when the early entry line started to move and go up the ramp we waited. But the majority of people behind us just started moving forward so the line turned into a blob and then a bottle neck towards and at the entrance to the ramp. The people behind me for some reason didn't wait and thought they could just cut in line and they ultimately created chaos. Sadly this is not the first time I've seen this type of behavior at an early entry line.

what happened?  I saw a few grumblings on facebook but noone described any specifics

Well, my wife and I were in line about half-way down the hill near the parking lot, originally. As people picked up their folding chairs and such to take back to their cars, the line got gradually closer to the entrance. At one point, a lady who worked for Red Rocks came down and told everyone in line that the Fire Department would by rolling by the line at about 5:30 and we were supposed to scoot over to make them some room. Then, she would be back to pull Roll Call Early Entry people and their + 1 over into a separate line. That seemed like a good idea. The trouble started when all of a sudden, a bunch (and I mean A BUNCH) of people from either the back of the line or just straight from their cars decided to move up past everyone already in line up the left side. Well, most people already in line seemed stunned by this and kept their positions while many, many people not in line got way up front (not a single file line at all in the first place but now it was a line about 15 people across). Well, I'm not one to play games, so my wife and I went up with the people who broke away from the line in order to not get shafted by this bullshit process. At the front of the line, they finally started asking for Roll Call Laminates and slowly let people onto the ramp up the hill. While standing in that more narrow line, it started to hail! The hail was about marble sized but kind of slushy and not too damaging. It stopped and all was cool again. As the line on the ramp stood still waiting for the real Early Entry time, I overheard someone who has plenty of experiences at Red Rocks describe to his buddy how to score the best seat. He said to not go left where you had to go up and then down to find the closer seats. He said to go down low and to the right where it leads directly to the VIP row and the first two GA rows. He said to avoid that mad rush to pile into the first couple of rows next to the entrance point, because that's what every one would do and clog up the seats right near the entrance. He said to instead go up four of five rows, move down to the center or even Carl's side and make your way down to claim the unclaimed seats that would still be available due to the fact that everyone else would be jamming up the rows on Jim's side. I did just that and left my wife behind as I ran to claim our spot. We got on the second row Carl's side (not counting the roped off single front row for VIP's). I'll post some pictures and maybe a video later.

im not sure, last years took a week or so? Red Rocks 2012 had an audience tape circulating, I believe, the next day (i remember 8/3 surfacing at the most 2 days later and 8/4 didn't for a while, but I had that recorded on my DVR from the AXS broadcast) but it took a bit for the official audio to surface on livedownloads.com. I just cannot wait to hear this show, and who knows what we're gonna get tonight too

sorry thats my nickname for the version of the song that starts with that sweet reverb  riff FIRST instead of starting like the original arrangement on Evil Urges, what with the butterfly delay guitar intro and shit hahahah

I Call it reverse version because it starts with that riff, which starts WAY DEEP in the song, at the beginning....see???

2012 was better in some ways, just so many cherished deep cuts and white whales, but last nights performance was earth shattering and powerful and i feel like they just set a new standard.  It had everything and was performed masterfully.

Still in awe.

Agreed. 2012 shows were just slightly better.

Impossible to rank at this point. Each new show is a different chapter in the red rocks book they are writing- no point in comparing or ranking those chapters as the story is incomplete without one. They've been playing this venue since 2007. A lot has changed since then and they continue to build.

i know the shows were filmed...I can see the screens on the fan phone videos on youtube. it seems a LOT like the same cinematography as used for the AXS 8/4/2012 experience. We need to see it to judge it, if not at least get a good sounding audience tape for both nights. I'm through one listen now and it's awesome. Who was there? We NEED reports from people WHO WERE THERE. That's the dealio seriously..nobody'll know where it ranks, but I'll trust JohnnyYac's opinion and whoever else was there.


Oh and Dancefloors on 5/29 was just awesome, listening to the audience tape. Holy shit, I was glad Carl didn't take a small, bluesy approach like on 8/4/2012, he just dove straight into this rip roaring ridiculous shred fest. it seems like the first time the boys have played that arrangement of Dancefloors where Tommy does a solo with an auto-wah, like on Okonokos (not really a solo..but ya know). It sounded even better than 8/4/2012's version and that version, with its horns, was my favorite all time next to Okonokos.

I was there. I've been to every red rocks run since their first in 2007. Last night was fantastic. War Begun>I Will Sing was a standout for me. But again, no point in ranking  :wink:

Every show at red rocks is pro shot. It was the regular in house crew, not axs.

really??? thank you for the info pagerage!! who owns the footage after its filmed? Red Rocks? Would the band be able to buy the footage or get it for free from the venue for an official release? This is interesting. You've been to every single one?? Including the two opening stints for Bob Dylan in 2007 was it? or who did they open for I can't remember, but the second night's setlist is missing for the show.

Very VERY interesting pagerage!

Correct, 2007 was opening for Dylan. Then they went went down to Telluride and opened for him in Town Park. Only those 3 shows. Someone in the Dylan camp invited them as a one off during his tour. I believe the jacket might have been recording in CO at the time?

I imagine red rocks retains the rights but is willing to set something up with the bands. Probably determined ahead of time. But every band I've ever seen there has had the screen used and with good camera work. The AXS thing was a separate deal, although they patched that feed in to the screen.

i cannot wait to hear that Picture of You and Just One Thing. Supposedly, State of The Art was fucking out of control awesome.


any run these guys are going to do is going to be unbelievable.
I personally favor the two nights at the Fillmore 2005 which made up Okonokos and then im very very very fond of 8/3 and 8/4/2012 Red Rocks, as well as Vegas 2015, as for the two night runs.

The picture of you was NUTS

Night 1. Got to venue at 5:45 pm. Waited out the hail. Decided to hike up to venue instead of taking VIP bus. Hiked up the far right thru a security check point. Just told them we were VIP. Didn't know where to go for early access just assumed we were in right spot. We were 4th & 5th in some random line and I could see the stage. Walked in (didn't run) and got 2nd row dead center. No questions asked. Wow.

Night 2. Assumed/hopefull we could do the same routine. Showed up at 5:30pm. Walked up big hill and got to the front of the gate. Unfortunately, this time the guard then proceeded to guide us to the actual roll call line which we had to do the super long walk of shame thru and go to the bottom of the ramp. Haha. Bummer. But, we ended up sitting in our roped off VIP seats. Probably 10-12 rows up just right of soundboard. Not as good a view/feel as night 1 but sound was better.

Overall, I'm super pumped my friend and I spent our afternoons hiking/eating in Boulder rather in roll call line and still had stellar seats both nights. And the VIP poster is awesome too. 

What a bad ass experience with y'all and the best band of the last decade and today!

Back home now and thinking about what to say about these shows.  Maybe the first thing is I'm pretty sure I never saw a better 2-show set by this band but I've missed a lot; and I've seen a lot.
The set lists on both nights were awesome, only one or two each night I could have taken a pass on and many great tunes.  I thought last night was extra special.  They made every song sound incredible (including Easy :rolleyes:).  Jim and the band seemed to be at a level above the amazing place they usually are.  Lots of explorations and Jim showing off his lead guitar skills more so than usual.  Last night was one of their best shows ever, IMHO.

I didn't hear any mention of him either although I figured it out pretty quickly the way he was acting - not exactly like a guest.

Maybe everyone else has figured this out already but I wonder if the re-issue of It Still Moves this weekend, where Johnny, of course, is the guitarist, had anything to do with him showing up at RRs.

Amen, and throwing Quaid in the mix on a bunch of songs was really awesome.  For me the War-IWSYS-Bear might have been my favorite stretch ever for the band and then the PWW-Dance-OBH was incredible as well.  I went into night 2 saying I wasn't sure how they could top the first night, but they did that and then some IMO.

Yeah you can thank us in the roll call line that got the shaft the first night for fixing it on night two.  We told band management and they assured us no other entries for night 2.  Don't blame you for doing it, but it screwed a lot of people who waited there all day.

That was a fun weekend. I went solo, but still had a great time. Sat 10th row Jim side on Saturday and 6th row Carl side Sunday. Ended up right next to Patrick's brother on Sunday. Really nice guy. He turned to me after one of the songs and said, "I've never seen them do anything like that before." It was pretty early on, maybe after Spring or It Beats. I felt it too, there was just something extra going on. It was evident from the get go.

I spent a lot of time focusing on Patrick Sunday night. My God, he is amazing. The energy he puts out is unreal. He was so fired up about how great the crowd sang after one of the songs (maybe Easy).

My wife, who has been to about 20-25 MMJ shows, was pretty much saying the same thing after we were driving back from the sunday show and also on our flight home yesterday, she kept saying "they always kill it, but this weekend was just something more, something different and incredible".  I can't remember her exact words but she was asking me if I noticed the difference too.  Quite impressive weekend of music!

This was my 15th or 16th Jacket show (need to do a recount).  My first show was in 2002 when they opened for the Doves so I've seen this thing grow. 

This was my 2nd favorite Jacket show(s).  Number one being the 2012 Red Rock shows.  But this weekend was nothing short of amazement.  Both nights were epic and I was lucky enough to be front row for the 2nd night. 

Seeing 'Easy Morning Rebel' & 'Dancefloors' up close was a life time achievement.  Especially with Johnny Quad.  My first headline Jacket show opened up w/ 'Easy Morning Rebel' & I remember Jim James barefoot in all almost hit me in the front row with his guitar.

Its just crazy that I've followed this band since I was 24 years old and now I'm 38 with 2 boys of my own.  Its getting harder to get to these show as a family man now but its always worth it.  And I want to thank MMJ for giving me (and the fans) these epic experiences.

Highlights:

-Meeting so many cool Jacket fans
-That damn hike!!
-It Still Moves covering both nights
-Pictures of You (cried)
-O Is Real
-The Bear
-Dondante
-Johnny Quad ( I think MMJ should consider going w/ 3 guitars now)
-And just the experience of Jacket/Red Rocks.  Those 2 go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly!

I know I kind of babbled but this weekend felt like full circle from then till now for me.

dude - this is pretty much exactly me with the slight differences above!  :beer:

i need to let it all sink in more.  at this point night one was better than night two, but that Dondante was the single biggest highlight of the entire run for me. 

the only bummer was early entry.   it's somehow gotten worse every year.

Thats awesome.  This trip was hard for my oldest.  He is 5 now and misses his Dad (Me) when I go out.  Especially a long weekend!!  Walking down the hill Sunday night I grabbed a 'rock' from the ground to give to him.  Told him yesterday I got this from Red Rocks and I look forward to taking him there one day.  Going to see MMJ at Red Rocks is like going to Disney World!!  Great attraction at a beautiful place.

That Friday night show in 2012 felt like a private show for the fans.  It wasn't even sold out and the wind was blowing like crazy.  Magical experience!

This was my 15th or 16th Jacket show (need to do a recount).  My first show was in 2002 when they opened for the Doves so I've seen this thing grow. 

This was my 2nd favorite Jacket show(s).  Number one being the 2012 Red Rock shows.  But this weekend was nothing short of amazement.  Both nights were epic and I was lucky enough to be front row for the 2nd night. 

Seeing 'Easy Morning Rebel' & 'Dancefloors' up close was a life time achievement.  Especially with Johnny Quad.  My first headline Jacket show opened up w/ 'Easy Morning Rebel' & I remember Jim James barefoot in all almost hit me in the front row with his guitar.

Its just crazy that I've followed this band since I was 24 years old and now I'm 38 with 2 boys of my own.  Its getting harder to get to these show as a family man now but its always worth it.  And I want to thank MMJ for giving me (and the fans) these epic experiences.

Highlights:

-Meeting so many cool Jacket fans
-That damn hike!!
-It Still Moves covering both nights
-Pictures of You (cried)
-O Is Real
-The Bear
-Dondante
-Johnny Quad ( I think MMJ should consider going w/ 3 guitars now)
-And just the experience of Jacket/Red Rocks.  Those 2 go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly!

I know I kind of babbled but this weekend felt like full circle from then till now for me.   

I love this! Dont forget the hail the first night!!

Just got back from my first ever Red Rocks experience and it was nothing short of incredible.
The venue surpasses all expectations, just something magical about it as I knew it would be.
Met a lot of cool people all with an extreme passion for MMJ.

The shows as others have mentioned were phenomenal. Loved both nights but night 1 in particular was nothing short of amazing.
Victory Dance - set the tone of the night early
AEIOU - probably my #1 song of the run
Steam Engine - always special
Pictures of You - stunning, chilling, simply beautiful.
Strangulation! - Haunting, poetic, mesmerizing. I definitely felt a lot of things during it.
Smoking From Shooting- top 3 favorites from the weekend
Full Run Thru - thought the rocks were going to cave in. Super intense perfectly executed.
Encore of Touch me parts 1&2 and cobra an awesome Dance Party just didn't want the night to end.

Easily the best MMJ show I've seen or heard a recording for. Really feel blessed for having the opportunity to have witnessed it and make it my first ever Red Rocks show.

Side notes, didn't like the Fruit Bats at all, Barr Brothers were phenomenal. I wanted Floyd and they delivered.. I will never forget hearing Shine on you crazy Diamond at Red Rocks, I knew it was that tune at the very first note. To me that song alone set the tone of Sunday night (from the opener no less).

Night 2 was a bit different for me. I thought it was still an amazing performance but felt that it was more of a standard MMJ show.

Highlights were definitely:
War>IWSYS - #2 favorite song(s) of the run
O is the one- not a huge fan of this song normally but they killed it.
PWW- I was waiting for it and when it finally came it was perfect.
Dondante- I mean Friggen Dondante at RR, need I say more?

Night 2 did have more "low lights" for me personally, most of which being:
Compound/Throwback - just not a fan of these songs whatsoever
Easy cover- super corny (I know I'm going to get ridiculed for that comment), I felt like it was never going to end.

The rest of the show was very good although lacked the wow factor that night 1 had for me.. Odd also since night 1 was a clear Carl night and night 2 a clear Jim night.. I'm usually a much bigger fan when Jim brings his A game.

Night 1. Got to venue at 5:45 pm. Waited out the hail. Decided to hike up to venue instead of taking VIP bus. Hiked up the far right thru a security check point. Just told them we were VIP. Didn't know where to go for early access just assumed we were in right spot. We were 4th & 5th in some random line and I could see the stage. Walked in (didn't run) and got 2nd row dead center. No questions asked. Wow.

Night 2. Assumed/hopefull we could do the same routine. Showed up at 5:30pm. Walked up big hill and got to the front of the gate. Unfortunately, this time the guard then proceeded to guide us to the actual roll call line which we had to do the super long walk of shame thru and go to the bottom of the ramp. Haha. Bummer. But, we ended up sitting in our roped off VIP seats. Probably 10-12 rows up just right of soundboard. Not as good a view/feel as night 1 but sound was better.

Overall, I'm super pumped my friend and I spent our afternoons hiking/eating in Boulder rather in roll call line and still had stellar seats both nights. And the VIP poster is awesome too. 

What a bad ass experience with y'all and the best band of the last decade and today!



Yeah you can thank us in the roll call line that got the shaft the first night for fixing it on night two.  We told band management and they assured us no other entries for night 2.  Don't blame you for doing it, but it screwed a lot of people who waited there all day.

Totally. Kudos for y'all for righting the ship.
I would guess here were less than 12 people in the "VIP" line on night 1 so not too many got the screws. What a weekend!

Sound at Red Rocks beyond half of the venue is always hit or miss based on the wind.  The swirling wind makes the sound swirl so you only get perfect sound 1 in every 10 seconds or so.  Not the sound guys fault... just the elements that you have to deal with at RR.  Sunday wasn't too bad compared to other shows I've been to.

Absolutely amazing 2 night run!

I felt that Saturday was a very strong night but i didn't feel that the songs on the set list flowed together very well.  It seemed to be a big collection of their more accessible hits with those two mega rarities thrown in.  A very strong showing with some great moments, but to me not nearly as good as night 2.  I know some get a little impatient with the out of left field covers but when you have seen Jacket a billion times like I have you really welcome the change up..especially when Jim is owning a song like he did with Easy...  I thought the PWW was yet again their best live rendition of it to date (just as epic as NYC '15 but a little tighter with less filler during the jam), and the Dondante was just amazing and transcendent.  Overall, as some others have said, their execution just seemed to be on a whole new planet on night 2. 

After Louisville, I was so happy to be a part of that that I didn't feel like I needed to go to Red Rocks.. the vibe there was incredible.. but where that set of shows seemed to be about the feeling, Red Rocks was a display of the current state of their craft.  Maybe they are finally peaking.  If they can get better than that we all may explode in our seats at some point.

I'm the only one who cringes during Jims solo middle part of Dondante?   

Sometimes he goes too far off the reservation (this show was a great example).  I wish he would reign that part in a bit.  At the least try to play in the right key.  Just sounds sloppy.

the rest of the song was spot on.

I'm right there with you. I love the song but wish they'd play this one straight. For as long as they jam it, you could almost play the entire Circuital album.  Same opinion on the meandering Jim does at the end of Golden. He's been doing that a lot lately.

i've been saying this for a couple of years. It really started for me with the 25 minute Cap Theater Dondante. Dondante is best in that 12-15 minute range IMO

My recollection of this (haven't listened again tbh) is that Carl was kinda stepping on Jim a bit with the sax.

I get what you're saying, I absolutely do, my dad's always been the same way, but that kind of narrow-minded live fascism lends you to missing out on great stuff. Hearing a sick jam, especially one with a groove, build over 20 minutes is one of the greatest things to ever hear. live Led Zeppelin especially. But, I know there's  a lotta people who even think Zeppelin is overrated in the live arena. 

I get it.....I do....but...if you wanna hear a 12 minute, succinct, radio friendly version of Dondante, put in your copy of Okonokos, I know you guys have three different ones (me included)  :happy:   :beer:

Thats the only time in the set you think Jim is self-inuldging??  Hahaha, i mean he is pretty much having one big musical orgasm the entire show and isnt afraid to show you how much hes enjoying himself, to say the least..

As far as soloing, at times i feel he takes it a bit too far and loses it a little but without the risk you get no reward.  The way i see it is this...Jim is the conjurer who takes the rest of the band to these places that they could never dream of on their own, hes abandoning the structure and letting his subconscious take over (which for Jim appears to be a very strange and interesting place) but when he ventures out so far that he gets lost they are right there to snap him back to reality and they are very good  at doing that in a way that is subtle to most listeners. 

Okay but one gripe... i wish he wouldnt go metal hands on war begun.  Never understood or liked that  , especially after the solos he was doing previous to that on that song were so killer (smacking the strings and bossing out in general).

MMJ usually build a mood with their jammyness and that builds into an orgasm musically!

I can't think of one jam, during a song, where it just ended in a limp noodling solo.

I'm the only one who cringes during Jims solo middle part of Dondante?   

Sometimes he goes too far off the reservation (this show was a great example).  I wish he would reign that part in a bit.  At the least try to play in the right key.  Just sounds sloppy.

the rest of the song was spot on.
I'm right there with you. I love the song but wish they'd play this one straight. For as long as they jam it, you could almost play the entire Circuital album.  Same opinion on the meandering Jim does at the end of Golden. He's been doing that a lot lately.

I'll throw in the pointless nonsense he sometimes adds to the end of "lay low." those moments always cause me to look at the person next to me, shake my head, and say, "self-indulgence."

Thats the only time in the set you think Jim is self-inuldging??  Hahaha, i mean he is pretty much having one big musical orgasm the entire show and isnt afraid to show you how much hes enjoying himself, to say the least..

As far as soloing, at times i feel he takes it a bit too far and loses it a little but without the risk you get no reward.  The way i see it is this...Jim is the conjurer who takes the rest of the band to these places that they could never dream of on their own, hes abandoning the structure and letting his subconscious take over (which for Jim appears to be a very strange and interesting place) but when he ventures out so far that he gets lost they are right there to snap him back to reality and they are very good  at doing that in a way that is subtle to most listeners. 

Okay but one gripe... i wish he wouldnt go metal hands on war begun.  Never understood or liked that  , especially after the solos he was doing previous to that on that song were so killer (smacking the strings and bossing out in general).



THIS IS PERFECT! I've seen the band do that so much! they subtly reel him back in, only people playing in bands really notice these small things. I used to go off to the 3rd dimension during some of my old band's songs and I'd get the little looks and the little drum rolls and the momentum building and building, a musician's way of saying "GET BACK TO THE RIFF!"  :beer: :cool:

don't know if  I explained that right (im at work) but it's totally a feeling I get when I see them do this, I saw it during Dondante at RR 2015 and at the show I saw in SLC 2015

so off........play it straight? screw that....this band's about adventure...

I get what you're saying, I absolutely do, my dad's always been the same way, but that kind of narrow-minded live fascism lends you to missing out on great stuff. Hearing a sick jam, especially one with a groove, build over 20 minutes is one of the greatest things to ever hear. live Led Zeppelin especially. But, I know there's  a lotta people who even think Zeppelin is overrated in the live arena. 

I get it.....I do....but...if you wanna hear a 12 minute, succinct, radio friendly version of Dondante, put in your copy of Okonokos, I know you guys have three different ones (me included)  :happy:   :beer:

Yeah this band has always straddled that line between being too indie for the Jam scene and too Jammy for the indie scene. I do like that they have been crossing more towards the jam line as of lately.

I do think the best thing they have going for them in this regard is Pat, who is a master at reeling the boys back in. There are times where Jim and Carl are just lost rocking together and Pat is great at getting them back to the song. I think they all do it in their way, but I notice Pat the most. Keeps it from being endless boring noodling like Phish....

i've been saying this for a couple of years. It really started for me with the 25 minute Cap Theater Dondante. Dondante is best in that 12-15 minute range IMO

My recollection of this (haven't listened again tbh) is that Carl was kinda stepping on Jim a bit with the sax.

That Cap Theater Dondante with the horns is one of my favorite versions.  I'm a fan of the 20+ minute versions even without the amazing disco ball.

That Antibalas Dontante from Cappy2012 was .....hallucinogenic and twisted as fuck...but yet....IT WAS AWESOME!!!
I'd like to see less sax on Steam and Dondante and more guitar battles between Jim and Carl...that stuff really got to its insane apex around 2010...those two dueling bastards!!!!  :evil:

I always regretted not being able to see the original line-up perform since my first show was Sokol Underground in Omaha, NE in May 2004 with Carl and Bo newly added to the lineup. The show that changed my life... I always assumed that I would never see Johnny Quaid perform with the band, though.

When I saw Johnny walk out on stage this past Saturday night, I literally teared up. I recognized the guitar immediately. As the night wore on, I could see that he was having an absolute blast. What made it even better was seeing how happy the rest of the band was to have him there. The hugs at the end of night 2 just about did me in. I honestly don't know how I will ever see a concert to out-do what I saw this past weekend.

I think I can die a happy man now... hopefully not for a while, though.

I let Pat Myers know on the youtube link for Night II that we thought he was an American hero and suggested he join the board, as I'm interpreting from his response that he'd never heard of this forum before.

Interesting.....  :cool:

beautiful thoughts by the way, it's so true...that Twitter pic of Carl and Johnny and the sunscreen was hilarious and just so .......perfect, Hollywood ending. guy starts a band with cousin who becomes a genius and then that guy leaves the band right when theyre on the cusp of stardom, only to return to the stage, SG in hand, to blow the stage the fuck up with the band...a three guitar, reincarnation of the formation, not the sound, of the three guitar attack of Lynyrd Skynyrd (well...maybe on OBH  :rolleyes:)

It would've been perfect if Johnny was turned up enough in the mix where we could actually hear him! No doubt it was great to see him up there that much, and the fun he and them were having but IMO, it would've been better if we didn't have to strain to try and hear him. I can't speak for everyone but I honestly couldn't hear much of him even though I was focusing on trying to.

I realize mixing three live guitars isn't easy but if you're gonna have him up there a little more volume on his playing would be nice.  :beer:

I heard no evidence of Johnny. I saw him. I watched closely (not every song both nights, but you know what I mean) to see if the picture matched the sound, and I heard 5, not 6 musicians. He did not even get a turn at a solo in OBH, which I have seen video evidence of them having a 3 guitar solo ending when he is there. Kinda head scratching stuff.

Nah that's not it,IMO. There were a few times when one of them was carrying the tune while the two others were doing dual leads. Still couldn't hear him.

There's no question he was too far down in the mix. In fact everyone I spoke to (and it was a lot of people) thought the exact same thing. To tell you the truth, I didn't talk to one  person who said they could hear him!  :beer:

Johnny elected to play pared down parts and simple chord phrasings as to not step on the other two.  I'm not sure what you were expecting to hear but he was blended in just beneath Carl and Jim straight up the middle.  Every source cannot take pole position at once and only solos get boosted.  The core band is always priority and special guest get blended in to to taste. :wink:

So now that it's about a week later, I think I've finally come back to Earth after my first trip to Red Rocks.

Epic shows. Amazing. Completely worth flying to Colorado from NYC, and I couldn't think of a better weekend or bands to be part of my first experience at RR.

The highlight list is long and plentiful, but I'll try to pare it down...

State of the Art

Everything from It Still Moves (was the album that got me into them, so seeing any deep cuts from this still gets me)

The sequence of Steam Engine > Heaven's Door > Strangulation! > Smokin' From Shootin' > Run Thru..... pretty sure that combination of music should count as a weapon and one needs a permit to play that sequence live.

Ending the whole thing with Phone > Dancefloors > OBH... Going from what I thought was the most beautiful music of the weekend, to probably my favorite MMJ song, to OBH...perfection. just perfection.

Other random highlight: If anyone caught the Flaming Lips perform the Soft Bulletin with the Colorado Symphony that Thursday, it was beautiful. And right after The Spiderbite Song, I told my friend that that song is about Steve Drozd's heroin addiction. I was amused by how disturbed he was to learn that news about such a beautiful song.

Just hit the download button.  There will be a popup ad that you can just close out of.
I would share my MP4 but I'm having trouble with winzip and not sure of any other way.

I've been lurking here for a while and this seemed like the perfect time to finally register!  Red Rocks show was mind blowing and I am so thankful/excited to have the full video!!

A quick word from France to say hello to all the fans and thanks to the band.

On Nov 13th I was trapped more than 2 hours in the Bataclan during the Paris attacks. It was the worst time of all my life even if it turned out not that bad for me, without me or my friends being wounded.

When MMJ announced the two Red Rocks shows, I knew I had to come. This was the first concert I've booked, a month after the ordeal. It helped me a lot to have this goal.

Booked my first time in the US then: 3 days in NYC, fly to denver and see MMJ, and a 4 days road trip in west Colorado.

I loved every minute of that night from parking my car until I went to bed.

Loved the venue
Loved the audience
Loved the opening band
Loved MMJ

Understood but it is my responsibility to protect and serve the immediate band and the integrity of the songs. Guest are a cherry on top and at my discretion when being mixed live.  This a subjective matter and IMHO the guitars were balanced properly.  Since 03'

A quick word from France to say hello to all the fans and thanks to the band.

On Nov 13th I was trapped more than 2 hours in the Bataclan during the Paris attacks. It was the worst time of all my life even if it turned out not that bad for me, without me or my friends being wounded.

When MMJ announced the two Red Rocks shows, I knew I had to come. This was the first concert I've booked, a month after the ordeal. It helped me a lot to have this goal.

Booked my first time in the US then: 3 days in NYC, fly to denver and see MMJ, and a 4 days road trip in west Colorado.

I loved every minute of that night from parking my car until I went to bed.

Loved the venue
Loved the audience
Loved the opening band
Loved MMJ


This is awesome.  :beer:

Fair enough. I totally get protecting the immediate band and you're certainly entitled to your opinion on the balance.

I've seen Johnny guest a couple of  times with the band and could hear and distinguish his playing fine. All I'm saying is this time I couldn't.

 At first I thought it was just me or where I was sitting but both nights I was fairly close to center, and no more than 20 rows back either night, but in talking with others I found it wasn't just me. I don't think there's anything wrong with voicing my thoughts on this and I'm not trying to be a jerk about it. Simply stating what my experience was.  :beer:

Yes it is and add me to the list of people raising a glass to you Remi.  :beer:

I hope you make it back to the States for more shows. If you do, be sure and let us know. I'd be honored to buy you your drink of choice if we're at the same show. 

Thanks for sharing your story, and keep on rocking!  :thumbsup:

This is going to sound like a smart ass question but I mean it sincerely when I ask: what makes it your responsibility? Do you work for the band? I'm just curious

Here's my video of "Bermuda Highway" recorded on Sunday (Night 2) at Red Rocks. I know, I know, I record Bermuda Highway at almost every show I attend, but it's one of the soft songs that doesn't overdrive my simple camera's mic. Sorry to be redundant, redundant ...

Fortunately for us, the tapes are great quality.

Hey guys! This is my first post so bare with me.

I was at both of these shows, marking my 6th and 7th MMJ shows and 69 unique songs I've seen them play (some up to 6 times, like Mageetah, I have them all written in a journal) and my first time at Red Rocks. I was abosolutely blown away. Saturday we were in the first row of the back GA and Sunday we were in the last row of the front GA. (Darn this bein a college kid with no money for Roll Call!!)
I've been a huge fan of Jacket since I was a kid, growing up in Louisville, and having two much older siblings, driving me around and jammin with me in the car, so this was the trip of a lifetime.
I'm not sure if this has been posted here yet but I wanted to share with you guys the words Jim shared with us Saturday, in case you missed it. They were beautiful.

"Times, times are strange right now. But there is a lot of good in the world, and I can feel it here. Let's help each other move past all the bullshit. Let's help each other move past out dated concepts such as race and sexual orientation. Let's help each other move past outdated concepts, to the present, which is love. Love is all there is, love is all we need, and we need it really bad right now. Help spread the word, love is love and we are here to love and we love all of you. Thank you so much for coming out to spend some time."

At the same time, it makes me wonder if the live album is going to end up being red rocks 2016.  What other reason could there be for the lack of official downloads?

the beacon run had NYC film and production permits posted all around the theater that week.  This fact, on top of the crystal clear recording release of the EoDM song I love you all the time suggests that the Beacon run will be released.  My guess is that Jim is culling the tracks and the label is having endless marketing meetings on how to monetize this thing.

take my money, seriously - just gimme those songs!!!!

Stayed up waaaaayyy too late last night watching both of Pat Myers' videos of the full RR run. Good lord, they were on fire those nights. Second night might be my favorite. Throwback is sooooo tight. I've also never seen Jim as awesomely theatric as he was during the ending of Lay Low. What a run.

I've updated the "Dondante" from Red Rocks that I recorded and posted earlier with Taper Audio. My video ends at a little past 14 minutes into this 19 minute version, so I supplemented the rest with photos I took that night. It sounds and looks really good. Check it out!

My Morning Jacket performed the song, "The Way That He Sings", during their Night 2 set at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado on Sunday, May 29, 2016. (I recorded this from the second row and have dubbed Taper Audio over my inferior audio. - Taper Audio by Mike B)

This video starts with a slideshow of photos I took of the audience in attendance at the sold out My Morning Jacket concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, in Morrison, Colorado on Sunday, May 29, 2016. Actual live footage of the band performing begins around 2:30 in the video. I shot the video from the 2nd row. The photos were taken during the opening act, The Barr Brothers. The audio has been enhanced with Taper Audio made available from Mike B.
