September 5th & 6th, 2017
Chris Tomlin performed before two sold-out crowds at Red Rocks Amphitheater, which is arguably one of the most iconic music venues in the country, if not the world. Thanks to my friends over at Housefires, I was given the opportunity to photograph both nights, and it was one of the most incredible live event experiences I've ever been a part of!
The first night, Chris Tomlin was accompanied by some other well-known artists, including Steven Curtis Chapman, Mac Powell, Brandon Health, and Ellie Holcomb. The second night, Housefires opened for Tomlin and then joined him again on stage for the last song, "Good Good Father," (which was written by Pat Barrett and Tony Brown of Housefires, but made popular by Tomlin). Tony got the chance to share a little bit of the story behind the song, which was a really beautiful moment.
Red Rocks is one of the most awe-inspiring venues: two massive red boulders project up into the sky on either side of the amphitheater, and from the top, one can see a dazzling view of the Denver skyline. Colorado's rugged, natural beauty is on full display at Red Rocks, and it's no wonder that is has become such an iconic venue and bucket-list item in the music industry. I'm so amazed and grateful that I got the opportunity to shoot two shows at this beautiful place!
