As reported last month, Kenny Rogers plans to retire from live performance after 60 years. And what other way can he commemorate his retirement than having a farewell concert? Rogers and an-all star roster of artists will be part of “All In for the Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration” at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, October 25th.
Good news is another set of talented artists are added to perform for the concert including “All In for the Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration” at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, October 25th. Well isn’t that exciting?
Currently, Rogers is on a farewell tour that will run through early November. Tickets for “All In for the Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration” are already on sale. A portion of the proceeds will to T.J. Martell Foundation and to the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center.
“I’m excited about making one more sweep around the world,” says Rogers. “This final tour is going to be a celebration of all of my music, and I know each night will be truly special.”
Rogers insists his retirement has more to do with family than age. When announcing his farewell travels last year, he expressed the need to spend more time with his wife and kids. Still, he is not hanging up all of his many career hats. The Gambler is currently designing a “Kenny’s World” hotel and has at least two more books of photography in the works.
“One will be called American Beauty, and it’s all waterfalls and beautiful canyon shots,” Rogers told Rolling Stone Country last year. “And the other will be places I’ve been and things I’ve seen, and it’ll be pictures from China, Africa, Europe, Switzerland — over the Alps in a helicopter.
