Members of John Denver's touring band will perform in "John Denver: A Rocky Mountain High Concert." The band and a small string section will play backup to original video footage of the late singer-songwriter.
Why go: Denver's "Rocky Mountain High," "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Sunshine on My Shoulders" and other songs have left a lasting mark as more than folk and country classics.
Reconsider: This may just be weirder than recent hologram performances.
