Kenny Rogers ... Through The Years World Tour (2 NZ Dates Announced)


KENNY ROGERS
THROUGH THE YEARS
WORLD TOUR
TWO NEW ZEALAND SHOWS ONLY
CHRISTCHURCH FRIDAY, 13 FEBRUARY
HAMILTON SUNDAY, 15 FEBRUARY

Presale starts next Monday, 4 August – 8.30am
General public on-sale next Friday, 8 August – 9am


Pacific Entertainment and Coast in association with Bluehawk Presents are pleased to announce the return of Grammy legend, Country superstar and contemporary music icon, Kenny Rogers in January and February for concerts in Australia and New Zealand, as part of his Through The Years World Tour.

Kenny will traverse Australia before heading to New Zealand in February for two sensational shows at the Christchurch Horncastle Arena on Friday, 13 February and the Hamilton Claudelands Arena on Sunday, 15 February, armed with an impressive list of classic hits and a new album.

Since his sold out 2012 visit, Kenny has been honoured with an induction into the American Country Music Hall of Fame (and upcoming biographical Museum exhibition until June 2015) and the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award – his sixth Country Music Association Award. He’s also made his first appearances at Morocco’s world music Festival Timitar and the largest outdoor arts spectacle, the Glastonbury Festival, playing to over one hundred and thirty thousand enthusiastic fans.

Previous prestigious accolades include three Grammy Awards, eighteen American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and sales of more than one hundred and twenty million - one Diamond, twenty Platinum and thirty two Gold albums, making him one of the Top Ten Best Selling Artists of All Time.

Kenny is an enduring artist with a distinctive voice, gift for storytelling and universal appeal. He has consistently sold out venues where he performs from a chart topping catalogue, spanning seven decades and multiple genres including hits such as -

The Gambler, Coward of the County, Reuben James, Lucille, Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town, Lady, She Believes in Me, Islands in the Stream, We've Got Tonight, Daytime Lovers, Sweet Music Man, You Decorated My Life, Buy Me A Rose, I Can’t Unlove You, Through The Years and more.

Kenny’s thirty second studio album released in 2013, You Can’t Make Old Friends, was a magical reunion for the recording of the title track duet with best friend Dolly Parton (only the third time in the studio since their Real Love hit in 1985) and The Gambler songwriter, Don Schlitz. The duet performance garnered a Grammy Award nomination and the album, You Can’t Make Old Friends, scored Kenny his twenty second Top 10 Country Album on the American charts.

As an actor, Kenny starred as Brady Hawkes in The Gambler - five films which became the longest running mini-series franchise on American television and another movie inspired by his hit, Coward of the County.

His autobiography, Luck Or Something Like It - A Memoir, was a New York Times Best Seller on release in 2012 and continues to receive stellar reviews. Kenny has also produced several books of photography and this year, received an Honorary Masters of Photography from the Professional Photographers of America.

Kenny Rogers is the singer, the musician, the songwriter, the photographer, the producer, the actor and of course …The Gambler!

Don’t miss a memorable night with the legendary Kenny Rogers on his Through The Years World Tour, where he will be joined by our own stars, the Bourbon County Brothers, who had impressed audiences so much with their brief tribute to Glen Campbell at Kenny’s shows in 2012 that they were invited back to share their own special brand of country music, plus special guests, newcomer Jody Direen in Christchurch and guitar legend Gray Bartlett in Hamilton.


Tickets for the New Zealand shows go on sale to the general public at 9am Friday, 8 August through Ticketek.
