"...death is not an ending, but a symbol of movement along the path upon which
we are all traveling. As it may be painful to lose contact with the physical aspect
of one we love, the spirit can never be lost. We have been and always will be a part of each other." John Denver (1943-1997)
Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. was destined to become one of the world’s best-known and beloved performers, and Colorado’s favorite transplant, who took the stage name of John Denver. A career spanning over three decades and 30 albums has made him one of the top recording artists in sales history, selling more than 60 million albums around the world including 14 Gold, 8 Platinum and seven multi-Platinum album awards.
John Denver first performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 21, 1972 – four months before Rocky Mountain High blew onto the charts. Throughout the years he gave 16 more concerts at Red Rocks, the last show being in the summer of 1989. He was the first artist to play four consecutive nights at Red Rocks.
The songs of John Denver will rise again at Red Rocks Amphitheatre to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of his first performance. For those thousands of fans around the world, you won’t want to miss this most unique Colorado concert event of the summer: The 3rd Annual JOHN DENVER TRIBUTE starring Jim Curry, with former John Denver band members, and special guest Lee Holdridge.
