Red Rocks Amphitheatre Is World's Most-Attended Venue in 2021, According to Billboard

There's a new #1 at the top of Billboard Magazine's year-end chart of top-grossing and best-attended venues: Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Billboard's Boxscore has named Red Rocks Amphitheatre as the top-grossing, most attended concert venue of any size, anywhere in the world for 2021 – the venue's 80th anniversary. Red Rocks has broken its own season record by hosting 233 ticketed paid events including 177 concerts, 20 yoga/fitness programs and 36 movies in the Film on the Rocks series.

The previous record for shows-per-season was 2019's 168 concerts. A handful of shows took place for audiences of 175 people in 2020 and the 2021 season began under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic with reduced capacities, seating charts promoting social distance, on-site Covid vaccination stations and uncertain fans and tours.
