Getting super high on oxygen and 4 other Red Rocks memories from Chromeo's Dave 1
Aside from those who shoot for the moon with too many drinks during the parking lot pregame, most people have a favorite recollection or two from attending a show at Red Rocks. None more so than the actual musicians who grace the hallowed stage, however. They're the ones with the best seats in the house.
Before he gets to town next week, Chromeo's Dave 1 supplied us with his favorite memories of performing at the most iconic music venue in the world ...
"Getting high off the oxygen tank before the last show; like inhaling so much oxygen that we got delirious before the show."
"The first time we played Red Rocks, we posted a video of us finishing 'Bonafied Lovin’' and the crowd cheering, and Travis Scott commented 'Bruhhh' on the post. That's a good memory."
"A-Trak coming out doing a surprise scratch solo the first time we did it."
"Red Rocks is one of the places where I can actually go into the crowd, and like, go up a few steps and hang out with the fans as I’m singing. That’s always really, really fun."
"Every time we play Red Rocks I love sound checking because it looks and sounds so incredible, and the reverberation of our music against the whole rock background ... actually the foreground of all the seats in the amphitheater sounds so cool, so sound check is always really amazing."
