A Shot, A Pop, A Shirt and A Show: Red Rocks Begins COVID-19 Vaccinations

En español

Red Rocks Amphitheatre concertgoers will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccination shot on-site when they attend select concerts, and get a t-shirt and concessions voucher for making the effort.

The promotion will begin with this Thursday’s Diplo and Saturday’s Osees shows at the venue and continue through the summer.

“The entertainment industry only works when people are able to gather together, and a healthy audience is vitally important at Red Rocks,” said Red Rocks spokesman Brian Kitts. “We’re making it easy to come to a concert and leave knowing that our fans have protected themselves, their families and their fellow music lovers.”

The city-owned Red Rocks Amphitheatre is coordinating with the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE), which will oversee distribution of the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to any person over the age of 18. The distribution will focus on concerts with younger audiences that may not yet have had quick access to the vaccine. Up to 100 doses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, with those fans receiving the concessions voucher and a Red Rocks 80th Anniversary t-shirt.
The venue’s primary promoters and contractors, AEG Presents, AXS Ticketing and Live Nation, are supporting the effort and encouraging all fans to be vaccinated during the summer before indoor venues open or increase capacity later in the year.
