PHOTOS: Kings of Leon Red Rocks Amphitheatre show (review, video)
Kings of Leon has created a decade’s worth of studio output, and it can be divided right down the middle into two distinct eras: before “Only by the Night” and after “Only by the Night.” Or, if you ask old-school purists, before Kings of Leon sold out and after Kings of Leon sold out.

PHOTOS: Drake and Lil Wayne Red Rocks Amphitheatre (review)
Lil Wayne and Drake are the rap game’s equivalent to President Barack Obama and VP Joe Biden. There’s the obvious competition, respect for each other’s talent and dubious public joshing -- not to mention the fact that while they’re on the same team, audiences love each equally but for totally different reasons.
Listen: Drake’s most sensitive lyrics
From the looks of things, Drake is living a pretty excellent life. He’s arguably one of the hottest rappers in the game, signed to one of the most successful labels (Young Money Records) and he gets to do cool stuff like shop for snacks with Nicki Minaj.
PHOTOS: Oddball Comedy Festival 2014 at Red Rocks (review)
The artistic risks of performing stand-up in massive, rock-ready venues are considerable, as Dave Chappelle's birthday show proved a couple weeks ago. Inebriated hecklers, lagging energy, and even random weather can sap the momentum from an art form that thrives in close, sheltered quarters.

PHOTOS: Arctic Monkeys Red Rocks Amphitheatre show (review, video)
In yet another soggy late summer night at Red Rocks, Arctic Monkeys pulled off an impressive feat: their slithery, sexy rock and roll satisfies the legions of hysterically screaming 13-year-old girls, their parents and the soaked hipsters neglecting rain gear to show off their impressive wardrobe.
Arctic Monkeys are finally popular in the U.S. — here’s why it took so long
Ever since the Beatles stepped off that plane 50 years ago, the British Invasion has been a serious discussion topic for music enthusiasts on each side of the pond.

PHOTOS: OneRepublic Red Rocks Amphitheatre show (review)
As Labor Day weekend came to a close on Monday night, OneRepublic was hard at work.

The night also marked OneRepublic bringing its last few months full circle.
PHOTOS: Atmosphere Red Rocks Amphitheatre show
The weather was far more forgiving as Atmosphere returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday. The band headlined the legendary mountain amphitheater in 2012 for the inaugural Winter on the Rocks.

Through walls of wind, rain and what could have been debris from Dorothy's house bodies climbed the hills to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Tuesday to see the calm and collected cool of John Legend.
REVIEW: Dave Chappelle Red Rocks birthday party
Dave Chappelle seems capable of anything, and not just because he once walked away from his hit Comedy Central show, or because he left the stage after being heckled during a headlining set at last year's Oddball Comedy tour.
PHOTOS: Portugal. The Man, Grouplove Red Rocks Amphitheater show (review)
Early on Thursday, Portland indie-pop band STRFKR set the precedent for a night of great cover songs at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with a take on Cyndi Lauper's classic, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The smallish and tame crowd would be treated to takes on "Teenage Wasteland," "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Day Man" from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" from Grouplove and Portugal.
