Denver Arts and Venues is seeking the Colorado health department’s approval to allow Red Rocks Amphitheatre to reopen at a 2,500-person capacity in the spring, with the potential to expand in the summer, reports the Denver Post. Red Rocks personnel specifically hope to host approximately 80% of a standard crowd size at the outdoor venue by summer 2021’s conclusion, said Brian Kitts, Red Rocks’ director of communications.
In accordance with COVID-19 mandates, mask wearing and adherence to social distancing guidelines (six feet) would be enforced should the venue be cleared to return to live operation. The Denver Department of Public Health is said to have received the application to reinstate amphitheatre activity; however, it has not yet made it to the state, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment told the Denver Post. Dancing Astronaut will provide updates on Red Rocks’ operational status as they become available.
