Country Star, Kenny Rogers Cancels Tour Over ‘Health Challenges’

Country music legend Kenny Rogers has scrapped the remainder of his farewell tour on doctor’s orders.

The 79-year-old singer is “working through a series of health challenges”, his management said in a statement.

“His doctors fully expect the outcome to be great,” they added, but said he had been advised to cancel his commitments “to focus on recuperation”.

Rogers had eight dates left to play, including an appearance at Blackpool’s Livewire Festival in August.

The Texas-born singer is known for hits including The Gambler, Islands in the Stream and Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).

He announced his farewell tour in 2015, saying he wanted to spend more time with his two young sons and his wife Wanda.
