Kenny Rogers has endeared music lovers around the globe with his amazing songs, heartfelt performances, distinctive voice, gift for storytelling, and universal appeal. Now, after more than five decades of touring and entertaining the world, his final world tour, “The Gambler’s Last Deal,” will run into 2018 due to popular demand.

For his upcoming “Christmas & Hits” tour dates, which start on Dec. 2 in Ralston, Nebraska,
Rogers will perform Christmas favorites, selections from his 2015 album “Once Again It’s Christmas,” and his well-known hits.

“I hope you’ll be able to join us to share some special holiday memories this year. Performing and recording Christmas music have always made for some incredible memories throughout my career,
and I’m excited to continue the tradition,” Rogers said.

The Gambler’s Last Deal concerts feature an all-new show, including a reflective look back through Rogers’ storied career of nearly 60 years. Enhanced with personal stories, vintage photos, and video clips – including never-before-seen footage – the music-filled retrospective touches on every part of Rogers’ career. Along with many hits, Rogers is singing songs in concert that he hasn’t performed in years. The show is produced by veteran producer Kelly Junkermann.

Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has charted a record within each of
the last seven decades. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers achieved pop superstardom as well – his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10s rank him fourth best of all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley.

Rogers has recorded 24 No. 1 hits, 12 No. 1 albums, 25 Top 10 country albums, and is the RIAA’s eighth bestselling male solo artist of all time. The Country Music Hall of Fame member has received three Grammy Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, 19 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards, and six Country Music Association Awards, among many other accolades.

He has played to millions of fans around the world, performing chart-topping songs from a rich catalog of hits, including “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Islands in the Stream,” “Lucille,” “Coward of the County,” “She Believes in Me,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” “Daytime Friends,” “Through the Years,” “Love Will Turn You Around,” “You Decorated My Life,” “Crazy,” “Every Time Two Fools Collide,” and “Buy Me a Rose.”
