Musical Entertainment

John Fogerty is a true American treasure, one of popular music’s all-time greatest singers, guitar players, and songwriters. As leader of the one and only Creedence Clearwater Revival, Fogerty forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own.
After Creedence Clearwater Revival called it quits in 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career. Among his many other honors are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Since their formation in the mid-’80s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters have continued to evolve and explore, moving beyond their Colorado club circuit roots to become one of the most adventurous, respected and durable bands in America. Through constant touring and a zeal to travel down new musical avenues in the studio, BHTM (as their dedicated fans call them) have honed their collective stew of influences into a trademark hybrid sound that’s immediately recognizable.

15th Anniversary 9/11 Ceremony

OVERVIEW

The ceremony will include a procession led by the Colorado National Guard and representatives from the Colorado public safety community, remarks by the Governor and Mayor, and the presentation of military honors to include a salute, flyover, Taps and bell ceremony.

THE PROCESSION

When the Twin Towers collapsed, first responders ran toward the burning buildings to rescue civilians. The procession honors these brave men and women and all those who work tirelessly every day to keep our nation safe.

MILITARY HONORS

A special flyover, 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps will honor all of the men and women who have given their lives in service.

BELL CEREMONY

A fallen sailor in the U.S. Navy is honored with the chiming of a bell to signify the end of his watch. Four chimes will commemorate the lives lost in each of the attacks on 9/11.

WORLD TRADE CENTER STEEL

Honor Guards will continually rotate to allow the public to approach steel recovered from the Twin Towers. Together will we remember, we will honor, and we will pay our respects.
