Red Rocks Amphitheater - Morrison, Colorado
On the night of May 1st, 2019 the weather was being playful in the town of Morrison, Colorado. There were signs of rain, snow and certainly the cold would be a constant companion for the night.
Entering this epic and stunning venue, the seating area and stage sank between two monumental red rocks. A certain spiritual presence is certainly felt being amidst this piece of art that nature has organically created. And that energy was only intensified knowing that indie rockers, Interpol, would take the stage at the end of the night.
Concert goers arrived well prepared to take on whatever weather may come; wearing heavy coats, plastic ponchos and holding drinks on hand to help stay warm.
Sunflower Bean, Japanese Breakfast, Car Seat Headrest opened up the evening as fans huddled up together for some body heat.
But the heat was really felt when the handsome men of Interpol walked on stage, dressed sharp as usual. They greeted the audience and expressed excitement to be present at this incredible place. Multiple disco balls hung above them providing an elegant sight as they performed an 18-song set-list that instigated a crowd sing-a-long. Energetic and melancholic songs vibrated out of the stage. Songs like “The Rover” from their recent album, Marauder, and old favorites like “The New” and “Slow Hands.” They teased the audience with an encore of “Obstacle 1.”
Red Rocks Amphitheater was one of the many stops Interpol is making on their massive 2019 world tour.
