It was a plan that would have placed lasers at the base of the nation's first national monument, attracted as many as 50,000 people, and starred one of the biggest names in music.
Reed Robinson, superintendent for Devils Tower National Monument, said an agency representing the group, ICM Partners, approached the park in the fall and the park officially denied the request on Jan. 31.
Robinson said the park consulted with six American Indian tribes about the proposal, all of which generally agreed that it would be a disrespectful use of one of the country's most sacred American Indian sites.
"No event is going to be occurring in Devils Tower," Robinson said. "Anything that was proposed is a non-starter, is considered an adverse action according to the National Historic Preservation Act, and goes against the Park Service management approach."
the Sioux consider it sacred.
