“Red Rocks is not just dirt and stones and sky. It’s a temple, a shrine. It’s the same setting that the Greeks performed in at the beginning of civilization, and it definitely has the sacred American Indian spirit – you can feel the vibe. There is nothing like playing at Red Rocks under a full moon. Anything can happen!” –
Carlos Santana, from the foreword of Red Rocks: The Concert Years.
