A concert of "Almost Heaven" proportions is planned at 8 p.m. May 11 at the Smoot Theatre in Parkersburg.

Tickets are $29 for adults and $15 for high school students and younger.

The untimely death of John Denver in 1997 was a tragedy that was felt the world over. Such a void in the musical world left Denver's ardent fans demanding that his music survive. CBS television responded by producing a made for TV movie: "Take Me Home: the John Denver Story," in which Jim Curry's voice was selected as the voice of Denver.

Curry has now created the ultimate tribute experience, emerging as the top performer of Denver's music today. Often performing with Denver's former band members, Curry's tribute is the first and only full-length Denver tribute to headline in Las Vegas and has been celebrated nationally and internationally.
