Country music legend with more than 120 million records sold brings his many hits to the Modesto performing arts center for the second time.
Modesto, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Known for his instantly identifiable, sweetly raspy vocals and an ability to vividly inhabit each song he performs, Kenny Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums during his 52 years in show business.
Rogers last appeared at the Gallo Center for the Arts before a capacity audience in October 2009, and now will make a much requested return visit on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 pm.
Tickets for the concert range in price from $49 to $99, and may be purchased online at GalloArts.org, by phone at (209) 338-2100, or at the Gallo Center ticket office, 1000 I Street in downtown Modesto.
Rogers’ long list of recordings includes 24 #1 hits – “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Lucille,” “She Believes in Me,” “Islands in the Stream,” and “We’ve Got Tonight” among them. Two of his albums, “The Gambler” and “Kenny,” are featured in the About.com poll of "The 200 Most Influential Country Albums Ever,” and Rogers' greatest hits album has sold more than 24 million copies worldwide.
He has received hundreds of awards for his music and charity work, including three Grammys, 11 People's Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and five Country Music Association awards. The singer, songwriter, musician, producer, actor, photographer and entertainer is one of very few artists who have enjoyed successful careers in such a variety of genres – jazz, folk, rock, country and pop.
Kenny Rogers is presented by the Doubletree Hilton by Modesto. Boyett Petroleum is the Gallo Center’s 2012-2013 Premier Partner.
