"Rocky Mountain High," the late John Denver's 1972 hit (and Colorado's second official song), is among the tunes in a weekend tribute concert by vocalist Jim Curry and former members of Denver's band. They'll perform Denver's songs with the help of The Phoenix Symphony and guest conductor Lee Holdridge, the Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning composer who wrote the original orchestrations for Denver. Curry served as the singing voice of Denver in the CBS made-for-TV movie "Take Me Home: The John Denver Story." Denver died in a plane crash in 1997.
John Denver tribute concerts begin at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Symphony Hall, 75 N. Second St., Phoenix. Tickets start at $26. (602) 495-1999 or www.phoenixsymphony.org.
