Remembering John Denver on stage in JAX

Is it LIVE or is it Memorex?  FSCJ Artist Series presents the Official John Denver Celebration Concert honoring singer/songwriter’s memory and music from the John Denver Estate.  Hear John Denver’s voice and watch him perform on archival video screens backed by a live performance from former members of his band and accompanying string section.

Audiences will get a close-as-they-can-get experience of seeing Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and Poet Laureate of Colorado, John Denver in a concert setting.  For one performance only on September 29 at 8 p.m. at the Times-Union Center, Jacksonville fans can experience the legend like never before.

The John Denver Celebration Concert tour is an innovative musical treat and unforgettable tribute.  Concerts will include hit songs spanning his career and honor Denver’s memory and music.

With more than 33 million records sold and seven Billboard Top Ten albums, Denver released 23 studio albums over his lifetime.  Best known for the beloved songs: “Leaving On a Jet Plane,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” and “Rocky Mountain High,” which is the co-state song of Colorado, his catalogue continues to sell thousands of units per week.

Among his numerous awards and recognitions, Denver was instrumental in championing environmental and humanitarian causes.  His popularity and continuing influence on popular culture was apparent more than a decade after his untimely death in 1997 is remarkable.

“John Denver fans got their money’s worth last night at First Bank Center.  There’s no question that John Denver touched a great many lives.  You could see it in the smiling faces of the people in the crowd and hear it in the voices of everyone who spoke about him.”—Westword
