Health Challenges Prompt An Earlier-Than-Planned Retirement For Kenny Rogers

Kenny Rogers has cancelled the remaining 2018 dates of his farewell tour as he battles “a series of health challenges”. Kenny initially cancelled concerts in North Carolina and Pennsylvania set for May, but now he’s been advised by doctors to officially end The Gambler’s Last Deal Tour early.

His publicist shares a statement issued to People.com, saying, “Kenny Rogers has been working through a series of health challenges. His doctors fully expect the outcome to be great, but they have advised him to cancel all performances through the end of the year to focus on recuperation.” As for Kenny Rogers, he says, “I didn’t want to take forever to retire. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to say farewell to the fans over the course of the past two years.”

Many Ottawa fans were lucky enough to see ‘The Gambler’ last summer when he headlined at TD Ottawa Jazzfest. We wish him well.
