Music legend Kenny Rogers announces UK dates for June and July

Country and pop superstar Kenny Rogers comes to the UK for three arena dates this summer, taking in performances in at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on 29th June, the LG Arena in Birmingham on 1st July and finally the 02 Apollo in Manchester on 2nd July.

Known for his distinctive raspy vocals and ability to vividly inhabit each song he performs, Rogers has enjoyed great success during a storied career of five and a half decades. A groundbreaking recording artist and consummate entertainer, the legendary music icon is one of the elite few whose voice is instantly recognisable the world over.

A 2013 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Rogers has endeared music lovers around the globe with his amazing songs, heartfelt performances and rare storytelling ability while receiving countless awards for his music and charity work, including 3 Grammy Awards, 18 American Music Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, 8 Academy of Country Music Awards and 5 Country Music Association Awards. He has recorded 24 #1 songs and 12 #1 albums. Some of his most famous classic hit songs include: “The Gambler,” “Lucille,” “Islands in the Stream,” “Lady,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town,” and “Coward of the County” to name just a few.

Kenny Rogers is the RIAA’s 8th best selling male artist of all time with 1 Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums, 31 Gold albums and sales of more than 120 million records worldwide. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers has played to millions of fans around the world. Against all odds, he has charted a record within each of the last seven decades (50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s, and 2010’s).
In 2012, Rogers completed his Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Artist-in-Residence in Nashville, which was marked by two intimate performances at the Hall of Fame’s Ford Theatre. It was announced there that he had signed a long-term recording contract with Warner Bros. Records. A new album is planned for release later this year.

His autobiography, Luck Or Something Like It – A Memoir, released in October 2012, is a New York Times Best Seller. Rogers will make stops in the UK, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, Morocco, Canada and the U.S. on his 2013 World Tour.

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