good day fellow ABB fans... I'm pretty stoked this morning, just booked myself a flight and hotel to go see my beloved at Red Rock PLUS Gov't Mule over labor day weekend... WOOHOO.
i'm a huge fan from bc, canada and did the trek to the beacon this year too - inaugurated my 3 brothers to them and they are now fans too - and very jealous of my red rock trip -
so i was hoping to see who was all goin' down and just generally whip myself into a frenzy that leads up to sept 1st...
have a shiny day!!

Welcome Judyrose. Schoolgirl and I (finally) made it up to the Beacon for the first time and were lucky enough to see three shows as well. I just booked our flights to CO for Labor day weekend yesterday. I've never been to Red Rocks and can't wait.

Oh my dear Peachhead friends, you will truly enjoy this experience.

I am there too as well as Fig and Chicagofan. Have been there two other times. Once you go, you know you'll go back. Kind of like the Beacon in that aspect of can't get enough. I plan on booking my flight and reserving a hotel stay this week.

Judyrose, there will be all sorts of posts so keep yourself up to date by checking back often.

I saw my first show at Red Rocks last year....of course it was the Allman's.

Any venue that serves Fat Tire beer is OK in my book !

A lot of fans and some of the band and band mgmt. stay at the Denver West Marriott, which place did you book? If a few people from out of town can make it, I'll probably do some kind of get together thursday (depending if people get here in time). Final plans can't be made until I know more. Including, I am still trying, after all the weeks of spot news trickling out before the presales started, to figure out if the Allmans are playing saturday night or not (I think just Gregg with Warren) so that people, both here and out of state can make their plans. If most folks don't get here until late thursday night or Friday, i'll probably just make plans to meet people at the Marriott or at Red Rocks.

You are going to love Red Rocks. The Denver area is not that big so unless you hit rush hour, most places are within a half hour of each other. If everyone comes in later on like you, I may just go out to the hotel and meet a few folks, but if some are around, I'll crank up the tunes here in Denver! keep looking for threads or updates. There has been a Red Rocks thread in anything goes every year I can remember.

My first show at Red Rocks was a little Band called The Grateful Dead in 1978.I have gone up to see them,the ABB and other bands throughout the years.Thats 28 years of shows on the Rocks

With that said I am PUMPED to be going to Red Rocks this year to see The ABB and Govt Mule! Its like a mecca of music out west,Red Rocks is a great place to see music as its special to the bands as well as the fans.The energy is pretty unique. Anyone who has seen the ABB there I think will agree

Welcome welcome Red Rocks Red Rocks (sung like the who'sin whoville)

Hope to see you all there!

Where in Denver does your sister live? Tell her I'm in Washington Park East.

Oh, and let me add also to Judy and Pete. That you can be assured that Smilingjack and CowboyNeil are some very nice down to earth people. I haven't met them yet but hope to this year. The couple of times I've been out in Colorado has left me completely relaxed and smiling all the time. The atmosphere and people in general are pretty special. Around here in Mass people are not oh so friendly and always in a hurry. If you smile at strangers they give a look like what are you smiling at?? I've even had someone ask me that. to them I say "It makes me feel good!" But in Colorado, that smile opens up a conversation and the next thing you know, you've made a friend and probably for life. I don't know why I don't live out there. Perhaps someday.

Anyway just more reason to ..."Going out west where they appreciate me" Don't you just love when Mule plays that song?? I'll bet Warren will have that one on the set list For Sat the 2nd.

One more thing Judy and Pete to add to the hype of excitement. You may want to check out the park early on one of the days for the beauty of sites.

The Burnham Hoyt Visitor Center is worth taking a look. The 30,000 sq.ft. center displays the history of the park and amphitheater. There's a restaurant, lounge, Hall of Fame and outdoor patio and plaza.

The park itself is 818-acres of amazing natural rock formations that will blow you away. The Hall of Fame has everything from the first concert to the recent listed with all sorts of great photos and stuff displayed. My favorite is obviously the ABB but there is this shot of SRV that is amazing.

well i admit to gettin' a warm and fuzzy feelin' already! colorado sounds like bc, canada re: attitude and friendly-ness - i should feel right at home then!
susea - YES, i realized that there is quite an expansive park there and do hope to walk some of it fersure... SRV shot in the hall of fame eh? (oops - that canadian thang ~laughter~) i'll be SURE to check that out.... after all, two of my tatties are in honor of SRV and ABB! thx so much for the info.
pete - i went to the beacon in 2002 for the first performance of 'hittin' the note', flew in for 2 nites, that was it... what a whirlwind trip! - only slept one night... ~laughter~ but i was SO blown away - i knew i'd be back. i tried to catch them in 2005... it was my bday on march 27th, but that was the yr easter fell on my bday and i missed them by THREE NITES AAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHH!! i was in NYC and everything - so this year i went with my 3 brothers to celebrate my baby brother's 30th bday and we caught them on sat the 18th... that was it. the best was when my brother said - "judy, if i would of sat in this hotel room for the whole 4 days and done nuthin' but catch that ABB show, it would of still been the best trip of my life...!!" needless to say they are sick that i'm gettin' down to red rock.
thx again to all of you - i'm sure i'll get to meet some of you in person - have super day!

Hey Smiling Jack, thanx for the welcome.
Don't know exactly where the wife's sis lives -- I'll let you know! My wife has lots of Colorado in her life, and she's been dying to get me out there for years, so I figured this would be about as good a way to get to CO as there can be!

I'm almost TOO psyched considering it's only April, better cool down a bit...

Hey Susea, nice to meet you!

Thanx for the welcome and for all the info, I'll be sure to build in some time for the park. I've been wanting to get out to Red Rocks -- and to CO in general -- for years, so this will be a double treat.

Where in Mass are you? My Daddy was born & raised in Milford , and MY sister (as opposed to my wife's CO sister) lives in Northampton. I've found that people are pretty nice over there in the western part of the state. We've even thought about living there, but man finding work is tough with a 3-yr-old, no room for floundering around!

Anyway Susea, Jack, John, Judyrose, CowboyNeil & whoever else, I hope to stay in touch with y'all and meet up in Colorado for a pre-show party!

Pete

Thanks for the kind words Susea. I have been trying to pump up Red Rocks for the ABB and family bands and the fans for as long as I have been coming to this website (I was Jack the Pirate on the old site). It is for selfish reasons-I want the bands to not only continue to come here (one of the 2 great outdoor venues in the country with the Gorge as the other). And I was thinking about my buddy CowboyNeil the other day and realized that we have only met in person 2 times 2 years ago, yet I feel like he is an old friend. This site can do that to you!
Re: what you were saying about eye contact is so very true. When I first moved here it would take me by surprise when I looked at someone and they would quickly say Hi or howdy or something! Not like the NE where I moved from!
So, I look forward to meetiong those I have not met. we'll either party at my house, or at the hotel and finally again at Red Rocks. For those who will take some vacation time (if you have vacation time to take and have already flown here, I'd recommend staying for a while-you will love it.) I would be happy to help with plans. One caution I throw out to people making a trip to the west is if you are going other places from here check the actual miles involved since distances on maps can be deceiving and the time for a car trip to what seem to be close by states could take more time than you think.

Hey Pete, that's funny. Milford is in my neck of the woods. I'm about 15-20 min from there in Framingham. Not everyone is stuffy here. But a good majority are.

Jack, those are good words of advice with travel distances by car. I'd like to make it to the southwestern part of the state one of these trips. But it won't happen this year with limited time. I plan on staying from late Thurs to late Tues. I would need more time for that excursion.

Over the years I have had people tell me that when they come out they would take a day trip to Las Vegas (750 miles) or they have an extra day and want to go to the Grand Canyon-not going to happen by car in a 2 day RT!

You'all probably have this already, but just in case you don't, here is the Red Rocks link:
http://www.redrocksonline.com/index.asp
This Red Rock sandstone formation is the same feature up and down the front range of the state. In Boulder the formation is called The Flatirons and there are hiking trails thru Chataqua Park/Boulder Mountain Park system (http://www.ci.boulder.co.us/openspace/) And in Colorado Springs (which is a bigger area than Red Rocks) it is called The Garden of the Gods. The Garden of the Gods is a short trip from Denver to the northern outskirts of Co. Springs near the Air Force Academy. http://www.ci.boulder.co.us/openspace/
There are great pictures on these sites.
