Neyla's Take

"It still blows my mind that Red Rocks even exists! Having an amphitheater in the middle of this gorgeous, natural structure, overlooking Denver; it's just magical."

My First Red Rocks Show

"My brave dad took me to see Hanson at Red Rocks when I was 10. I knew every word to every song and wore a t-shirt with the 3 brothers’ faces plastered over the front. I did not anticipate playing the same stage 20 years later. It’s an incredible honor to get to play there. I still feel like The Lumineers are little babies in the grand scheme of things, and playing a venue as iconic and celebrated as Red Rocks is something I certainly don’t take for granted. 

It's an amazing experience because of its beauty, and all of the history and amazing artists (beyond Hanson, I mean…) that have played, but it’s also a hometown show for us. So I got tobe on stage at the most beautiful venue in the world, playing for my family and friends and high school teachers and co-workers. It’s special to look out in the crowd and see a lot of the people who really helped me and were rooting for me to get to where I am."
