DENVER (AP) - A music promoter who brought some of the biggest names in the business to Colorado, including as the Doors, the Rolling Stones and U2, has died. Barry Fey was 73.
The Arapahoe County coroner's office says he died Sunday at his Cherry Hills Village home. An autopsy was planned Monday.
Among the tens of thousands of shows he promoted during his 30-plus year career was U2's legendary performance at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in 1983, captured in the "Under a Blood Red Sky" video. It increased the outdoor venue's popularity and Fey was eventually able to get Bruce Springsteen to play there.
In the forward to Fey's memoir, Ozzy Osbourne said Fey was the first to book Black Sabbath.
The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/152EOih ) reports Fey was recovering from hip replacement surgery.
