Legendary country music star Kenny Rogers, after more than five decades of touring, selling more than 120 million albums and entertaining around the globe, will begin his final world tour May 13.
“The Gambler’s Last Deal” is expected to run into 2017, and dates are still being added due to popular demand.
“I’m excited about making one more sweep around the world,” Kenny said in a news release.
Kenny, who so far hasn’t set Las Vegas on the tour schedule, will play Edgewater in Laughlin on June 25 and Comerica Theater in Phoenix on June 26.
Kenny says his “Last Deal” concerts will include a reflective look back through his 50-plus-year career with personal stories, vintage photos and video clips —including never-before-seen footage and songs he hasn’t performed in many years.
Kenny is the Recording Industry Association of America’s eighth-bestselling male solo artist of all time, has won three Grammy Awards and has been inducted into the Country Hall of Fame.
