Grammy Legends and Country Superstars Kenny Rogers and Glen Campbell are heading Down Under for a sensational series of concerts from 10 – 29 August, kicking off with two dates in New Zealand then touring Australia coast to coast.
The Gambler and Rhinestone Cowboy will share the stage for seven extraordinary nights in Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne & Newcastle on an itinerary which includes solo shows for Kenny in Darwin, Gympie and in Adelaide with Special Guest Beccy Cole. Glen’s only solo performance on his “The Goodbye Tour” is in Brisbane with Very Special Guest Troy Cassar-Daley and the next generation of the Campbell clan, Instant People.
Kenny and Glen are much loved studio, stage and screen icons with accolades in abundance, including twelve Grammys, Academy of Country Music, CMA, People’s Choice and Lifetime Achievement Awards and over fifty classics are Top Ten hits across multiple genres -

A public disclosure was made last year that Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease. This has not affected his performances and the American tour is receiving excellent reviews.
