Kenny Rogers Announces First Set Of Final World Tour Dates

"The Gambler's Last Deal" Begins On May 13th
After more than five decades of touring and entertaining the world, Kenny Rogers will begin his final world tour on May 13th in Mahnomen, Minnesota.

Rogers announced late last year on NBC's The Today Show that this upcoming tour would be his last. "The Gambler's Last Deal" is expected to run into 2017. Dates are still being added due to popular demand. The tour will include special guest Linda Davis for all dates, along with Charlie Worsham for select dates in Europe. Davis is a GRAMMY® Award winner whose hits include the No. 1 song, "Does He Love You" (with Reba McEntire). Nashville based singer-songwriter Worsham, who is excited to return to Europe with Rogers after a successful tour there earlier this year, is currently in the studio working on the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut, Rubberband.

"I'm excited about making one more sweep around the world," Rogers remarked. "For more than five decades, I've been fortunate enough to have such wonderful, loyal audiences, and their support has meant so much. This final tour is going to be a celebration of all of my music, and I know each night will be truly special."

"The Gambler's Last Deal" concerts will include a reflective look back through Rogers' storied 50-plus-year career. Enhanced with personal stories, vintage photos and video clips-including never-before-seen footage-the retrospective will touch on every part of Rogers' career. Along with his long list of hits, Rogers plans to sing songs he hasn't performed in years. The show is produced by veteran producer Kelly Junkermann.

Making this rare tour experience even more special, a very limited number of VIP ticket packages will be offered, allowing fans the opportunity to meet Rogers and receive one-of-a-kind "The Gambler's Last Deal" memorabilia. Two types of VIP packages are available for each show of the tour. For more information, visit:

Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has charted a record within each of the last seven decades. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers achieved pop superstardom as well - his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10's rank him fourth-best of all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 24 No. 1 hits, 12 No. 1 albums, 25 Top 10 country albums and is the RIAA's eighth best-selling male solo artist of all time. The Country Music Hall of Fame member has received three GRAMMY® Awards, 11 People's Choice Awards, 19 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards and six Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, among many other accolades.
