The tour starts in September and will run through November, hitting 47 cities.
It stops in Denver at 8 p.m. Saturday, September 14, at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1400 Curtis Street in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Tickets run $52 to $62 and are available at AXS. For more information, go to the Voss Events website.
