Previously known as the Comfort Dental Amphitheater, this outdoor arena in Englewood, Colorado has a cozy-sized stage and the option of reserved or lawn seating. The open lawn seating is an affordable choice for the casual concert-goer to kick back on a blanket and savor soft breezes and the sounds of major artists. Music lovers on a budget will score optimal sound by arriving early for a green space facing the stage. Reserved seats in line with center stage are best for serious fans. They also provide increased comfort and proximity to performers – and who wouldn’t want to be close to Tim McGraw, Bob Dylan, and Heart when they play on the stage this summer! With outdoor acoustics, the closer to the stage the louder the sound. So bring a set of earplugs in case you need them. Additional acts expected in the coming months include Miranda Lambert & Dierks Bentley, Pitbull & Ke$ha, Brad Paisley, Kid Rock, and Maroon 5. The most popular acts sell out fast, so consider booking one of the 7,500 reserved seats in advance at www.livenation.com where you’ll find the Fiddler’s Green schedule. Buy tickets in advance or on show day at the box office. More information is available at the box office number, (303) 220-7000. It’s easy to find the amphitheater from the Holiday Inn by driving south on I-25. Come early to allow time to follow signs to free parking and stroll back to the arena. Adjacent VIP parking is available for VIP and premium seating which can be purchased by calling (303) 837-1024. Or drop off the car at the RTD Evans Light Rail station near Colorado Boulevard, exit the train at the Arapahoe at Village Center stop, and walk less than a mile to Fiddler’s Green. Concessions are available. Budget-minded guests who prefer to arrive after dinner can try the Holiday Inn’s newly renovated Front Range Grill or one of the many dining options on Arapahoe Boulevard near Fiddler’s Green.
