Getting to a concert at Red Rocks this summer just got a whole lot easier. CID Entertainment, well known hospitality provider for some of music’s biggest tours and festivals, is proud to announce its third summer of operating “Shuttles to Red Rocks” to provide fans with safe, reliable, comfortable transportation to Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This year, service will be expanded to include three convenient pick up locations: Union Station, Capitol Hill, and Pearl St. in Boulder. “We had an incredibly positive response from our riders last season,” reflected CID Colorado’s General Manager Harrison Scott, “And we are excited to continue to expand this service by offering additional stops in Denver and Boulder.”
Last summer, CID moved over 10,000 concertgoers from Union Station to the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In addition to the round-trip transportation, all 2016 shuttle guests had the opportunity to take advantage of food and drink specials at pick up location Thirsty Lion Gastropub and Grill.
This summer, in addition to the Union Station stop, there will be two new shuttle pick-up locations. Through an exciting new partnership with Colorado’s own Illegal Pete’s, CID will offer new pick-ups at the Illegal Pete’s locations on Colfax Avenue in Denver and on Pearl Street in Boulder. Illegal Pete’s is a longtime supporter of live music in Colorado, including their Starving Artists program that feeds touring bands for free.
Philadelphia-based CID Entertainment expanded its footprint to Colorado in 2015 when CEO Dan Berkowitz saw an opportunity to raise the bar for transportation services to concerts at Red Rocks. “People travel from all over the world to see this venue, which is such a major part of the local culture,” Berkowitz commented. “There is such a strong community-based music scene in Colorado, and we are thrilled to be part of it by filling the need for a seamless and comfortable way to get to Red Rocks.”
By leveraging the logistics and hospitality expertise gained from transportation programs for large-scale festivals like Coachella and Electric Forest, CID rolled out Shuttles to Red Rocks as the solution for fans looking for a way to get to Red Rocks safely and for a reasonable price. Through exclusive partnerships with AEG Presents Rocky Mountain and Live Nation, CID’s shuttles will be available for nearly every concert this season.
