After the birth of my daughter I realized that I needed to make more of an effort to seek out things that made me happy. Reading more books quickly became one of the best ways for me to unwind. The other activity I started doing more surprised me. I have always loved music, but going to concerts was never really my thing. After the excitement of seeing The Backstreet Boys and N’SYNC in concert, I just didn’t think I could muster up the energy. Ingrid Michaelson was the first concert I went to after my daughter was born and I went by myself. I didn’t care that I was by myself. I left that breastfeeding baby with her father and hit the town alone. Soon going to concerts became one of my favorite things to do.
We are lucky in Colorado because we have one of the best concert venues in the country, Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In fact, it is hands down my favorite concert venue. Despite the fact that my out of shape, altitude challenged self is often out of breath by the time I get to my seat, it’s still my favorite. You just can’t beat the acoustics, the views, and the energy. In honor of this wonderful landmark, I decided to make a list of my top 5 Red Rocks concerts. I also encourage anyone who has never seen a concert at Red Rocks to put it on your bucket list ASAP. You will not regret it.
