Kenny Rogers Announces Star-Studded Farewell Show

By: Matt Niehoff

Tag: Live Music

Rogers' final show will feature performances by the legendary Dolly Parton and more, and in my opinion, Kenny says it best:

As I'm bringing this chapter of my career to a close, this will be an unforgettable way to celebrate with my talented friends, who I'm so grateful to have crossed paths with. It means so much that they would feel compelled to do this for me. Of course, the night would not be the same without Dolly Parton being part of it. We've enjoyed a special friendship for decades, and I'll forever look back fondly on the many collaborations, performances, and laughs we've shared as some of the most extraordinary moments of my career. I know it will be a moving experience for us standing on that stage together for one last time."

This one-night-only concert event taping will bring together fans, friends and music icons to celebrate Kenny Rogers. All In For The Gamblerwill feature performances byKenny Rogers,Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Alison Krauss, The Flaming Lips, Idina Menzel, Jamey Johnson, Elle Kingand many other special guests to be announced in the coming weeks.

Kenny is like a family member to me. We have been friends for over 30 years and made musical magic together. Since 1983, when we released Islands In The Stream, everyone has had an expectation to see Kenny everywhere I go and me with him wherever he goes, says Dolly Parton. Well, I guess for many of those fans that wanted to see us together, this will be that night. Performing with Kenny for the last time ever onOctober 25this going to be emotional for both of us, but its also going to be very special. Even though Kenny may be retiring, as he fades from the stage, our love for each other will never fade away.
