Kenny Rogers Farewell Concert Celebration Announced

Kenny Rogers Farewell Concert Celebration Announced

Nashville, TN, July 18, 2017
The expectations were high at the Kenny Rogers
press conference at The Steps at WME in the heart of Nashville as a
special announcement was going to take place.  Those expectations were
all met and then some when we received a specially
made playing card with The Gambler himself as the king of hearts.
On the back of the card we saw “All In For The
Gambler” printed in a very artful graphic design and it was announcing a
farewell concert to be held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on
October 25.  After digesting the news for a little
while, the CEO of Blackbird Presents, Keith Wortman, started speaking
and presented Kenny Rogers as he walked onto the stage floor.
We were told that at this concert, Rogers’ legacy
and songbook will be celebrated with the help of some very distinguished
artist friends of his.  Dolly Parton is one and Kenny said she had
talked to him initiating the idea for this concert
with the words “You can’t do this without me”.  And truly, what would
“You Can’t Make Old Friends” be if they didn’t do it together …
Other well respected and renowned performers will
be Alison Krauss, Little Big Town, The Flaming Lips, Idina Menzel (Queen
Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen”), Elle King and Jamey Johnson.  More
performers will be announced as the details finalize
in the upcoming weeks.
Any lover of music will agree when we say Rogers is
an icon, a trendsetter, a musical hero and legend and still feel we
have limited ourselves trying to describe who this revered entertainer
is and what he stands for.  Millions of fans
love him, millions of people have seen him in concert and he is one of
the best selling male singers of all time in numbers of records sold
with over 120 million.  He is currently on his last tour and is now
going to be honored with this farewell concert.
 All millions will miss seeing him perform, but we all wish him the
very best from our hearts to his now that The Gambler has decided, once
the tour is over, to start spending all available time with his wife and
twin boys.  They will also be present at the
“All In For The Gambler” farewell concert.
Tickets go on sale on July 21.
