Loveland Colorado and Red Rocks

Posted Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 04:29 pm GMT -6 in Concerts, Travel, Work

My job has taken me to Loveland, Colorado, the past two weeks to work on a large education project. I’ve enjoyed working on this one a lot – the scope is large and interesting, the client employees are great and I’m working with a very knowledgeable co-worker for the first time. Loveland and Berthoud are very nice towns with the typical western U.S. look to them (and majestic mountains off in the distance).

Food and lodging have been pretty nice – the Best Western I’m at was recently remodeled and the locally-owned restaurants I’ve been to have been excellent (Bent Fork Grill and 4th Street Chophouse). I’ve been loving the Chick-fil-A across the street from the hotel too (maybe loving that a bit too much).

Last week I took an evening off and drove down to Morrison, Colorado, to catch the Joe Cocker/Tom Petty concert at Red Rocks. That venue was amazing and is by far the best place I’ve ever seen a live show. I took a walk around the Trading Post trail before the show and got a little winded on the 1.4 mile trek. Stunning scenery, though.

As for the concert, both acts were firing on all cylinders. I enjoyed Joe Cocker’s set more than I thought I would, with lots of great songs (You Can Keep Your Hat On, With a Little Help from My Friends, Shelter Me, You Are So Beautiful, etc.). The official Tom Petty site has a nice summary of the show with photos and here is the setlist:

  • Kings Highway
  • Listen to Her Heart
  • Won’t Back Down
  • Free Fallin’
  • Oh Well
  • Mary Jane’s Last Dance
  • Driving Down to Georgia
  • Breakdown
  • Jefferson Jericho Blues
  • Taking My Time
  • First Flash of Freedom
  • Running Man’s Bible
  • I Should Have Known It
  • Good Enough
  • Learning to Fly
  • Don’t Come Around Here
  • Refugee
  • (encore) Running Down a Dream
  • You Wreck Me
  • American Girl

Heading back to Minnesota tomorrow night. Up next: Tapemark on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then off to Hurley, Wisconsin, for another week.
