Blast From the Past: Kenny Rogers

On Friday, September 23, 2016 we were honored to welcome country music legend Kenny Rogers to our stage. It was a special evening at The Paramount for more than 1,000 friends of the Theater. From “Islands in the Stream” to “Coward of the County”, “The Gambler” and “Lucille” he performed hit after hit to an enthusiastic and thankful crowd.

Avid Paramount Star Circle Member, Volunteer, and patron-extraordinaire Heather Walker shared in a tribute to Mr. Rogers earlier today about her memory from the performance. “We were so lucky to see Kenny Rogers perform live at The Paramount. He was so kind during our meet and greet! He gave me an autographed tambourine at the end of the night!”

Today’s news that he passed away brought a flood of memories from this night, along with extreme thankfulness for the music he shared with us so many for decades. If you were in attendance, we would LOVE to hear YOUR special moments and memories of the evening, too. Please visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to leave a comment as we remember together this legendary performer.
