Kenny Rogers on Saturday



A brand new show for Saturday.  For the first time in London City, the legendary Kenny Rogers in concert!

Kenny Rogers, born 1938, after appearing in many bands, launched his solo career in 1976.
He first became famous in 1977 with the single Lucille and on the strength of that, his first album imaginatively entitled Kenny Rogers became a number 1 selling album in the States.

More hits soon followed with, Ruby, Coward of The County, Lady, The Gambler and then he hit stratospheric fame with Dolly Parton in 1983 with the platinum selling Islands In The Stream, which was recently voted the most popular country hit single of all time.

In November 2017, Kenny, now suffering from severe mobility issues due to unsuccessful hip replacement surgery which has seen him largely confined to a wheelchair in recent years, decided to hang up his hat and retire from Showbiz.

We invite you to enjoy an evening with Kenny Rogers as he plays London City on Saturday.
The party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), with the Concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.
