Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside Denver is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful

Ever since the ancient Greeks built their first amphitheatres, we’ve known an incredible setting will always enhance the drama of a performance.

These days we’re more used to seeing shows inside, under a roof. Concert halls, theatres and gig venues allow promoters to control specific conditions – set the lighting, manage the acoustics and escape the weather.

But there are still a few amphitheatres around, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside Denver is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful.

The people who run it say it’s the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. Whether that’s true or not, it has to be one of the most atmospheric settings to see a band perform or catch a film.

If you fancy seeing a concert or film this summer, there are still tickets left for a number of shows. Below, is our pick of the schedule.

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
