Country music’s influential and iconic superstar, Kenny Rogers will bring his Through The Years World Tour to the South Okanagan Events Centre on Thursday, February 27, 2014.
The Country Music Hall of Fame member has enjoyed a 55-year-career as a Grammy Award-winning recording artist, distinctive vocalist, and consummate entertainer. Amazingly, Rogers has charted a record within each of the last seven decades and scored a hit single in the past six. Rogers has had a massive year in 2013, highlighted by his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame on October 27, 2013 and his forthcoming Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award honour at the 47th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville on November 6, 2013.
Rogers recently finished recording a new album, You Can't Make Old Friends, which was released by Warner Bros. Records on October 8, 2013 to widespread critical acclaim. Called by Rogers “the best and most diverse album I’ve ever recorded,” You Can’t Make Old Friends debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, marking Rogers’ 22nd career Top 10 country album.
Earlier in 2013, Rogers performed on the main stage at the Glastonbury Festival to a colossal audience on the grounds and around the UK as it was televised on BBC. His 2013 Through The Years World Tour has included stops in Morocco, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada and the U.S.
A trailblazing artist, Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide during his illustrious five-plus decades in show business. He was the first country artist to consistently sell out arenas and quickly became a pop superstar as well – his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10's is fourth-best all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley.
