Starting Thursday, concert-goers at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre will be able to receive COVID-19 vaccinations during select concerts.

Westword reports that Denver's cultural agency, Denver Arts & Venue, has joined forces with the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment to inoculate attendees onsite starting tomorrow, May 14th at Diplo and SIDEPIECE's concert.

Health officials at Red Rocks will administer the one-time Johnson & Johnson shot for anyone 18 and over. Fans who opt to get vaccinated will also receive an 80th anniversary Red Rocks t-shirt and a voucher for concessions. Offering 100 doses each night, the DDPHE is focusing on vaccinating younger concert-goers who may not have had access to the vaccine.

Colorado's iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre will offer COVID-19 vaccinations at select concerts starting May 13th, 2021.

"The entertainment industry only works when people are able to gather together, and a healthy audience is vitally important at Red Rocks,” said Arts & Venues spokesperson Brian Kitts in a statement. "We’re making it easy to come to a concert and leave knowing that our fans have protected themselves, their families and their fellow music lovers.”

Over the years, the fabled open air venue has served as a place of solace not only for local Colorado music fans, but for all travelers far and wide. In April 2020 Red Rocks shuttered and postponed its events due to the impact of COVID-19, including their Easter Sunrise Service, which had taken place for the past seven decades. 

Fast-forward one year, when Red Rocks finally reopened to the public on April 22nd for a three-night event with the band Lotus at a limited capacity of 2,500 fans.
