The String Cheese Incident has played all over the world, but continue to come back to Colorado's iconic venues.

"We've played [Red Rocks] probably close to 40 times now, or something crazy like that," multi-instrumentalist Michael Kang said. "And then this new venue in Dillon right on the lake is really cool and Telluride is always up there."

Red Rocks reopened Thurs., April 22 with a capacity of 2,500 people. The venue has the potential to allow more people at shows if COVID-19 conditions improve. Red Rocks’ normal capacity is just over 9,500 people.

Brian Kitts, a spokesperson for Denver Arts and Venues, said Red Rocks has gone through the Five-Star Certification process.

Owned and operated by the City of Denver, the concert venue at Red Rocks Park has been home to some of the most iconic concerts in history, from artists such as The Beatles, U2 and Sting.

Located just west of the Mile High City, Red Rocks Park features 738 acres of hiking trails, geological wonders and astounding views.
