17,916 seat amphitheatre located in Greenwood Village, Colorado. It is the largest outdoor amphitheatre in the Denver metropolitan area.
It features 7,500 fixed seats and a general admission lawn section. The amphitheatre is nestled in Greenwood Plaza near the Denver Technological Center amongst office buildings. It opened in 1988 under the original name of Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre with a performance by Dan Fogelberg on June 11, 1988. It was later renamed to Coors Amphitheatre and had an exclusive operating contract with House of Blues until its sale to the new operator Live Nation. John Mayer and Counting Crows opened their 2003 tour with Maroon 5 on July 7, 2003 at Coors Amphitheatre with pre-tour rehearsals taking place at Coors Amphitheatre. The name has since reverted back to Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre.
Museum of Outdoor ArtsMOA, a local non-profit, owns Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre and gave the venue its name when it originally opened. The amphitheatre began as an earth sculpture (made up only of earth and grass) where local business people could break for a lunch time concert series sponsored by Museum of Outdoor Arts. Later, walls and seats were installed to make it the venue it is today. MOA has leased the venue out to large promoters such as MCA Concerts, House of Blues and currently Live Nation."
