One Republic is currently sweeping the US with a broad national tour, so playing the home venue of Red Rocks was an obvious stop for the Colorado natives. Playing a sold-out show at the legendary venue was as rewarding to the fans as it was the band apparently; the all ages audience sang every word. The audience was truly a family affair, you could see 3 generations of music lovers all over the venue with ages spanning from toddlers to their grandparents. The band found this first night of a 2 day ride at Red Rocks a welcomed home coming, the energy levels were visible and even the weather was perfect for the event. The show was a full on hit parade of songs, starting with supporting acts American Authors and The Script, who bring there own offerings of current radio friendly songs to the stage leaving the packed house a satisfied group of fans.
