University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts will be showing the John Denver: A Rocky Mountain High Concert to honor Denver's memory and musical talent on Monday, Feb. 4. The show will watch John Denver perform on video screens while being backed by members of his original touring band and accompanying string section. The show begins at 7:30 p.m.. This is the first time in 15 years that audiences get to see a performance like this since his untimely death in 1977.
The concert will feature hit songs from his career such as "Leaving on a Jet Plane," "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Rocky Mountain High," and "I'm sorry/Calypso." According to the Center for the Arts' website, "This production provides fans the opportunity to witness notable artists performing Denver's unforgettable music. It's also the chance to experience several artists that helped to influence Denver's own musical vision, as well as fellow artists that were Denver's close associates and either performed with or knew Denver closely."
Tickets are available at the box office, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., as well as an hour prior to the show, or on-line at tickets.com. They range in price among $27.50, $37.50, and $42.50.
Come see Denver, whose status as a cultural icon stands undiminished.
