Broomfield, CO (Top40 Charts/ Lobeline Communications, Inc. / AEG Live - Rocky Mountains) Legendary pop superstar John Denver is to be inducted to the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in a special benefit concert celebrating his music and life, hosted by Olivia Newton-John on Earth Day Eve, April 21, 2011 at 1STBANK Center. Tickets go on sale this Friday, at 10am MT.

"Earth Day seems so fitting for the tribute because John used his popularity to promote the environment, his favorite cause over his lifetime."

The stellar evening will feature performances by Olivia Newton-John, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Lee Ann Womack, John Oates and other talents in a commemoration to the late musician.

Notable John Denver hits will be performed by his former band collaborators Bill Danoff of the Starland Vocal band (co-writer of "Take Me Home, Country Roads") and John Sommers (writer of "Thank God I'm A Country Boy").

Famed composer Lee Holdridge, who has conducted orchestras for John Denver, Barbra Streisand, and Neil Diamond, will lead the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra in a special tribute performance.

Joining the cavalcade of entertainers will be Colorado artist and protege of the late Denny Dent, Brian Olsen, who will tap his iconic Art in Action speed-painting to create a portrait of John Denver live, in just minutes.

As music fans everywhere know, John Denver will always be associated with the Rocky Mountains and the city of his adopted name. During his 1970s heyday, he was one of the top five selling recording artists in music history.

Notable environmental activists will also join the stage in a commemoration of John Denver's long life dedication to the environment.

Chuck Morris, President and CEO / AEG LIVE Rocky Mountains, commented, "Earth Day seems so fitting for the tribute because John used his popularity to promote the environment, his favorite cause over his lifetime."

A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Cousteau Society, www.cousteau.org and Windstar Foundation that John Denver supported plus the University of Colorado's School of Music.

The CMHOF will also unveil details on the permanent exhibition currently being assembled with the help of the John Denver estate that will encompass the musician's career arc, his many interests and accomplishments, and musical legacy.

The tribute is to be held at the 6,500-capacity, state-of-the-art 1STBANK Center, located at 11450 Broomfield Lane (Broomfield, CO) off U.S 1-36 is the permanent home of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame.
