Visitors run, hike and take in the view of Denver from the seats of Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Monday. The amphitheatre was constructed and finished by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Work Project Administration in 1941, and artists including The Beatles, REM, U2 and Johnny Cash have played the famous venue.

“There’s no better place to see the stars,” goes the Red Rocks Amphitheatre slogan. Come July 28, there will be no better place to see a legend. John Prine, at 72, is still kicking, telling jokes between tunes both funny and sad. The oldies haven’t gotten old (“Hello In There,” “Sam Stone”) and the newbies from 2018’s “The Tree of Forgiveness” join the unforgettable lexicon. Sure to make this Red Rocks appearance even better? The Colorado Symphony is joining.
