John Denver —
A Rocky Mountain High Concert
Star Plaza Theatre

If you grew up hearing John Denver’s music, this is the show for you. Following in the conceptual footsteps of the “Elvis: The Concert,” members of John Denver’s band are performing with video projection of Denver to auditorium audiences. A fascinating concept, I look forward to seeing it in play.
