'The Gambler' comes to town: Kenny Rogers performs at Fallsview Casinoby jmaloni
Multiple Grammy Award-winner and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Kenny Rogers celebrates his 33rd "Christmas & Hits Tour" with four shows at Fallsview Casino. Audiences can expect to hear holiday classics and his biggest hits such as "White Christmas," "Mary, Did You Know," "Till The Season Comes Round Again," "Lady," "The Gambler," "Lucille," and his rendition of "Islands In The Stream."
Known for his instantly identifiable raspy vocals and an ability to inhabit every song he performs, it's no wonder Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums over an impressive five decades in show business.
The gifted singer-songwriter has delivered more than two-dozen No. 1 hits, 19 Platinum albums, 31 Gold albums, and is one of very few artists who have enjoyed successful careers in a wide-variety of genres, including jazz, folk, rock, country and pop.
In 2000, Rogers became the oldest artist in chart history to have a No. 1 solo record with his hit album "She Rides Wild Horses." He was given the prestigious Diamond award by the Recording Industry Association of America to celebrate more than 10 million sales of his "Greatest Hits" album (now exceeding 24 million sales), proving his talent was just as vibrant and meaningful as when he started.
Rogers will perform at 8:30 p.m. Nov. 12-13, and at 9 p.m. Nov. 14-15. Tickets start at $35 and will go on sale starting at noon Friday, Aug. 8, at the Fallsview Casino box office and at all Ticketmaster outlets. Call Ticketmaster at 1-877-833-3110 or visit www.ticketmaster.ca.
