“KENNY ROGERS’ THE GAMBLER’S LAST DEAL”

The Farewell Tour on DVD and CD

Amos Lassen

Kenny Rogers is a true living legend of classic country music. His final tour, “The Gambler’s Last Deal” is a celebration of his career and the scope of his talent from his very first recording made when he was in school, through his time with The First Edition, then on to his amazing solo years.

“The Gambler’s Last Deal” is more than just a concert–it’s a musical journey of Roger’s life, compered by Kenny of course, complete with track after track of all his hits, archive footage, music videos and past concert performances with Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss and Dottie West.

This was filmed at the London Palladium in 2017 at the end of his final world tour and combined with live footage from numerous other places on the tour, the concert spans an impressive six-decade career that established Kenny as a top recording artist with 150 million records sold worldwide.

Rogers is a master storyteller and he builds a strong rapport with his captivated audience, as he shares humorous anecdotes of his career between songs. The concert is also interspersed with interviews with his two sons, fellow artists and writers who helped shape his musical career, including Lionel Ritchie, manager Ken Krager , producers  and the president of Capitol Records Jim Mazza.

Backed by a tight band, Rogers dazzles the packed crowd with his hits. The DVD/CD set is packaged in a deluxe digipak and includes a booklet of vintage photos of Kenny and a forward by writer/producer Kelly Junkermann. A selection of songs from the concert are featured on the bonus CD, making this a wonderful collectors’ item for his devoted fans and will serve as a perfect tribute to the country superstar.

Extras include a music video of “Buy Me A Rose”, a backstage rehearsal from 2005 of “Someone, Somewhere Tonight” and additional interviews with members of Kenny’s band, cast and crew.
