Red Rocks is awesome. A breathtaking, one of a kind concert venue, surely the only one that has a "Geology" section on their website. It's a no-brainer location for a live video, but only if you deliver the goods. Luckily, Mumford & Sons are playing to absolutely packed house and directors Fred & Nick capture the venue with clarity and a larger than life scope.
I doubt the goal here is to top U2's "Live At Red Rocks" — an impossible task, since that concert shoot elevated both the band and the venue to unforeseen heights— but rather a way to show a real band in an truly organic venue with a packed audience. That said, the U2 + Mumford connection is one that's not being made by accident. --> watch "I Will Wait"
