Legendary singer-songwriter John Prine's 2018 performance in Denver, in support of his most recent excellent album, The Tree of Forgiveness, was an exercise in understated genius, humor and workingman poetic pathos few artists ever achieve.

Today, November 30, Prine announced that he's coming back to town — and this time, with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks.

The performance will take place July 28, with the rising trio I'm With Her.

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 14. For more information, go to Prine's website and the Red Rocks website.
