Kenny Rogers bringing farewell tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater



We've already today that Dolly Parton is coming to Tampa. Let's check in on her Islands In the Stream co-star Kenny Rogers, shall we?

Rogers is in the midst of a long-running farewell tour, and it looks like he'll be making at least one more stop in Tampa Bay, with a concert at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall on Jan. 22. (Take note: This'll be a matinee show, starting at 1 p.m.) Tickets to his "Final World Tour" start at $60 and will go on sale Saturday. Click here for details.

At this show, Rogers will be joined by longtime tour partner Linda Davis. So while it's unlikely Dolly herself will pop down for a one-off show, maybe we'll get a sweet country duet of Islands In the Stream nonetheless. And if nothing else, it'll be good to hear songs like The Gambler, Lady and Coward of the County one last time before Kenny hangs up his boots for good.
