COUNTRY | Kenny Rogers



My first brush with Kenny Rogers came when I was young. My dad owned the most eclectic albums imaginable, including "The First Edition," the eponymous debut record from Rogers and his band. That album featured "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)." Later on, when "The Gambler" was released, the man with the captain's beard was everywhere on the radio. At 77 years old, Rogers is still king, but he's following his own sage advice of "know when to fold 'em," so he's embarking on a farewell tour.

Kenny Rogers will perform on Saturday, May 21, at Kodak Center for Performing Arts, 200 West Ridge Road. 8 p.m. $55-$95.;
