Kenny Rogers concert rescheduled to June 11

The upcoming Kenny Rogers concert has been postponed until June 11.

The Country music legend  postponed his scheduled February 26 concert appearance at Western Financial Place due to illness.

Many other tour dates were affected as well including all of his Canadian dates and several US concerts scheduled in February. However, the Cranbrook show has now been re-scheduled to Wednesday June 11 at Western Financial place at 7:30 p.m.

Concert organisers said fans who have already purchased tickets are urged to simply keep them for the June 11 date as all the seating will remain exactly the same. Promoters indicated that while there were still some tickets available for sale, seating was very limited at the time of the postponement. However, those who are unable to make the re-scheduled date and want refunds, can call 250-489-0267 or drop in and ask for Carrie at the Administration office at Western Financial Place. You will have until March 21 to claim a refund.

For those people that want to buy any remaining tickets it is now business as usual —tickets are available now at WFP box office, by phone at 250-426-SEAT or on line at www.tickets.cranbrook.ca

"People have been very understanding," said Kootenay Concert Connections President F.J. Hurtak. "They know sometimes artists or family members get sick and shows have to be postponed or cancelled. Inclement weather is another common reason for re-jigging dates, especially in the winter months. We have been very lucky in Cranbrook thus far concerning these types of issues."

The management and staff of the City of Cranbrook and the Kootenay Concert Connection wish Kenny Rogers a very speedy recovery as do his millions of fans the world over.
