The Gipsy Kings brought their rumba flamenca flavored music to the world-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 9th. Performing such hits as Bamboleo, Volare, La Quiero, Vamos A Bailar, and Tu Queres Volver, the crowd never had a chance to sit down. Prior to the concert there was a VIP event held for sponsors and collaborative partners to wrap-up the first week of Biennial events.
Red Rocks’ acoustic and picturesque settings provided a perfect atmosphere for a summer concert with Lyle Lovett and His Large Band. Lovett performed his country style hits to a packed audience during the last weekend of Biennial events. Although it started raining during the show, it did not stop Lovett's “It’s Rock and Roll” from being a staple in the performance.
