Kenny Rogers to Perform in El Dorado - Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Main Street El Dorado will present Kenny Rogers live on Saturday, November 9, at the El Dorado Municipal Auditorium (100 W. 8th St.). The concert, part of Rogers’ Through the Years World Tour, begins at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

A Grammy Award-winning worldwide music icon and 2013 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Kenny Rogers has recorded 24 No. 1 songs (including "The Gambler,” "Lady,” and "Islands In The Stream”) and sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, making him one of the highest-selling artists of all time. Amazingly, Rogers has charted a record within each of the last seven decades.

Rogers’ busy fall includes the release of three projects: a new album on Warner Bros. Records, the paperback version of his New York Times Best Selling autobiography Luck Or Something Like It, and a novel entitled What Are The Chances, co-written with Mike Blakely. Rogers will also be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville during an official Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony in October. Rogers’ Through the Years World Tour has included critically acclaimed performances at the Glastonbury Festival in Great Britain, Morocco’s Festival Timitar, and in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada, and the United States.

"I can’t tell you how excited we are to have Kenny Rogers coming to El Dorado for this incredible performance," said Mark Givens, executive eirector of Main Street El Dorado. "1,834 lucky people are going to witness this musical icon perform in our city. I can assure you that this is going to be an experience you won’t want to miss!”
