Looks to me like they are exercising, at least someone's having fun at Red Rocks today...

Hey Avi! Yes, actually that crossed my mind as well. First I thought it might be "venue people" checking to see what the status was in the stands. But it also looks as though it could be locals who've arrived for their morning workout. Great place for it.

No, I've been following the scene from the homefront since yesterday evening. And you?

...Doing the same, watching the misfortune unfold and feeling terrible for everyone there.

For what it's worth, just a word of support to all who are at Red Rocks. Feel so incredibly sorry for all who turned up but have to leave before the concert on Thursday. Hope all who got together had a good night, in the circumstances.

I hope Thursday is truly wonderful for everyone who is fortunate enough to be there.

Well, I'm off to the airport and heading back home. Terribly disappointed, but if this is the worst of life's tragedies I have to deal with at the moment, then I'm in good shape! And I've been especially blessed to have met and gotten to know a few forum members, Leslie, Diana, Mary, Lizzy, Roman, Greg and the wonderful partners that tolerate and I think secretly enjoy keeping up with them! What a very unique and wonderful group of people - thanks to all. For those who are able to stay on until Thursday, please enjoy the show even more than usual and think of us who will be there in spirit!

I just got back to Salt Lake City from Denver. I, like many others, will miss the show Thursday evening. While I certainly don't blame Leonard and the band, I can't express how depressed this has made me. I've been listening to Leonard for over 20 years, and this was the first opportunity I had to possibly see him live.

I met dozens of people from all over who had flown in for the show: from Little Rock, L.A., Miami, Washington, Maryland, Texas, etc. I was told of someone in my hotel who had flown in from Australia. As most fans here would agree, this was more than just a concert for many of us, but a pilgrimage of sorts. I'm so sorry for everyone who will miss the gig.

Oh, Jeez - I have no idea & I didn't see a phone number on the Red Rocks site.
Someone on the forum must know. Roman perhaps?
It's a great idea to check into, in any case.
