PENTICTON - Kenny Rogers' February 27 concert at the South Okanagan Events Centre may be cancelled, but the gambler is still bringing his love to town.
You'll just have to wait until June 12.
And that's great news, because Rogers, who bowed out because of illness, was also the subject of a death hoax in February, a popular online prank where someone starts a rumour that a famous person has died and posts the bogus report on a social media site like Facebook. Rogers is alive and well according to his official Facebook page, and ready to perform with Canada's own Charlie Major June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums over a more than five decade career. His accomplishments include three Grammys, 11 People's Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and five Country Music Association awards.
