"Red Rocks South" 8,000-Seat Outdoor Amphitheater Planned in Col Springs


According to the Pikes Peak Courier:

A $40 million, 8,000-seat outdoor amphitheater that would host top-name music and entertainment acts is planned for Colorado Springs’ north side, where it would offer concertgoers a state-of-the-art venue in an open-air setting akin to Red Rocks and Fiddler’s Green near Denver.
The Sunset, as it would be called, would help lift Colorado Springs out of an “entertainment desert” while it attracts thousands of people to nearby restaurants and stores, said Springs businessman and entrepreneur J.W. Roth, whose Notes Live entertainment company plans to develop the venue.
The amphitheater would be built on 6.5 acres in the 200-acre Polaris Pointe development southeast of Interstate 25 and North Gate Boulevard. The venue, to go up south of the new Powers Boulevard extension that runs through Polaris Pointe, would have west-facing seats pointed toward a mountain backdrop and the Air Force Academy, Roth said.
“We call it the Sunset because the headliner show every night during concert season will begin when the sun sets behind Pikes Peak,” he said.
Roth hopes to begin site preparation work in about 45 days, complete the venue by late summer 2023, and host shows before the end of that year. He envisions a full concert season in 2024, with the most attractive dates between Memorial Day and Labor Day, though shows also could take place other times of the year.
