Country legend Kenny Rogers has revealed the initial dates and locations of his final world tour, set to kick off May 13 in Mahnomen, Minn. Calling the trek The Gambler’s Last Deal, the tour will visit cities across the U.S. from Rochester, N.Y., to Santa Rosa, Calif., before heading to Southeast Asia in August and Europe in late October. 

With more than 50 years of music-making under his belt, the man famous for songs like “The Gambler,” “Islands in the Stream,” “Lady” and “Coward of the County” has decided to come off the road for good.

“I’m excited about making one more sweep around the world,” Kenny says in an official statement. “For more than five decades, I’ve been fortunate enough to have such wonderful, loyal audiences, and their support has meant so much.

This final tour is going to be a celebration of all of my music, and I know each night will be truly special.“

 

Here’s a complete list of The Gambler’s Last Deal tour dates so far. More shows are expected to be added, pushing Kenny’s final run into 2017.

Linda Davis will be Kenny’s opening act on all dates, and Charlie Worsham will join on for the tour’s European concerts. Each night will include songs from throughout Kenny’s career—some of which he hasn’t sung in years—along with vintage photos and never before seen videos.

When the Country Music Hall of Famer announced his final tour on NBC’s Today show in Sept. 2015, he cited his family as his biggest reason for walking away.

“I’ve done this long enough,” he said. “I really want to be there with my kids and my wife. I don’t see enough of them. And I have some things on my bucket list.“
