A celebration of the life of country music great John Denver comes to the Marine Hall in Fleetwood later this month.

John Denver was just 53-years-old when his twin-
engine plane crashed into the sea off the Californian coast in October 1997.

But his music and lyrics live on through the tribute show – ‘A Celebration of John Denver’.

Wayne Denton plays John Denver and show organisers say the production transports the audience back to a time when country music filled the airwaves of every radio station around the globe.

Wayne said: “Despite being an entertainer and winning New Faces as a vocalist in my own right, it was always the music of Denver which was my first passion and I think it’s fair to say he was a hugely influencing factor on my career”.

His performance in A
 Celebration of John Denver’ features backing by musicians along with video footage throughout the performance.

It will be held at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood, on Saturday, April 25 from 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced £16.50 and £15. Call (01253) 887693 or buy online at
