Has Denver developed a celebrity curse?
In January, it was basketball analyst and former NBA great Charles Barkley, who got busted for a DUI after he ran a stop sign in Scottsdale, Arizona, while on his way to get a blow job. The Round Mound of Rebound had been scheduled to appear at the Wells Fargo Theater in Denver the next week as part of the Insight Speakers Series.
The show was eventually canceled, allegedly due to lack of interest. Barkley pleaded guilty and was sentenced to ten days in jail.

On Wednesday, news outlets reported that a New Jersey man has named Bruce Springsteen as "the other man" in a divorce case involving infidelity. Bruce, of course, is playing the Pepsi Center tonight, April 10, as part of Denver's high-rollin' double bill: The Colorado Rockies home opener is the first act in that one. Memo to Patti Scialfa: Hold your head high when you bang that tambourine. Denver loves a "Red Headed Woman."
So who's next? Only the curse knows for sure.
