If you have never been to a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, maybe 2017 is the year you can knock it off your bucket list --and here are five amazing concerts to see.

It's a bit of a drive from the western slope, and then it's a bit of a climb - but, from all accounts, the Red Rocks concert experience is well worth it! How can you live in Colorado and never attend a concert at Red Rocks?

Here are five magnificent concerts at Red Rocks worth checking out in 2017 - and there likely will be more added during the year.

    Just seeing Tom Petty for the first time would be awesome. But, then, you put Joe Walsh on the bill and suddenly you are in rock and roll history. Not many artists can command two dates at Red Rocks, so you know the 40th Anniversary for Tom Petty is going to be one hot ticket!

    Western Colorado was fortunate to have Chicago at the 2007 Rock Jam, but if you have not seen this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group, time is running out. These guys aren't getting any younger, although you couldn't tell it by the hectic schedule they keep.  Add in the Doobie Brothers and you have an unforgettable evening of wall-to-wall hits!

    Jazz, soul, blues, country, folk, pop - Norah Jones does it all. This one may be a bit outside your wheelhouse. but 9 Grammy Award and 50 million albums sold can't be wrong. On top of that, she was named the top jazz artist of the decade 2000-2009.
