We’ve all been kind of holding our breath to see how summer concerts would shape up. And yes, while it’s great that Red Rocks started shows tonight, more exciting to me is that Levitt Pavilion Denver has passed all the hurdles and ordinance checks to go forward with their concert series in Ruby Hill Park. They will be allowed 3,800 people in 700+ social distant “pods” of 4 adults each on their vast lawn – and yes, the shows will remain free.
There are COVID guidelines in place, all of which seem super reasonable. And we will absolutely have to RSVP for the shows we want to attend, starting tomorrow, April 23rd, at 10am. (I have an alarm set.) We can pay for VIP upgrades too, and of course that money goes to support Levitt keeping us filled with free music. Check out my past posts from Levitt Denver – I am sure we will have a very close kind of experience this summer too. See you there!
