TourGigs & Umphrey’s McGee Release Red Rocks 2016

Published December 08, 2016

On July 2nd & 3rd 2016, Umphrey’s McGee embarked on their first two-night headlining run of the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver, CO. The sold out shows proved to be a milestone for Team UM and cameras were rolling all weekend to capture the action, both on stage and off. UM is now pleased to offer you the ability to relive that weekend or experience it for the first time with the Blu-ray, DVD & download release of Red. Rocks. Repeat.

The double feature concert film includes both nights*, clocking in at over 5 hours of Umphrey’s live on the Rocks. Fans will have access to a pile of unreleased, behind the scenes footage including candid backstage hanging, pre-show warm up, and rehearsals. Additionally, in-depth interviews with the band are seamlessly weaved in and out of the film, highlighting a myriad of topics ranging from the early days of UM, band friendships, the improvisational process, songwriting, what it’s like to play Red Rocks and more.

The two disc set was captured in stunning High Definition using 16 cameras over the two night run. The crisp close ups of the band and stunning wide shots of Jefferson Waful’s light show will delight the senses. Select from a rich stereo audio mix or the fully immersive 5.1 Dolby Digital surround option that captures the nuance of what it’s like to be behind the soundboard. This is the most complete concert film UM has released to date so buckle up, you’re in for a ride.
