On my way to the Heineken Music Hall a Dutch guy smacked his bag in my face and laughed at the start of the travel and at the end a female British Kenny Rogers-fan smacked the door in my face. Does this wonderful wake-up-trick means that I can expect more good things this evening?
Just in time after some train delays I entered the Heineken Music Hall and the Security guy laughed when he checked my bag. Guess he expected more than only an agenda full of crap.
I had a seat at the Black Box, but what does that mean? Just the whole floor where I already was told a HMH-staffmember with a smile as I was a bit worried that it was “a very stupid question” and I told her about my fear.
Than I focus my eyes on the chairs and did I hear a warm welcome from someone of the press? My seat was next to a guy, which make a report for”Lust For Life Magazine” ( http://lflmagazine.nl/concertrecensies/kenny-rogers-in-de-heineken-music-hall ) and a lovely elder couple from Amsterdam are our supportact. The lady told such a funny fanstories about Kenny Rogers that I could not wait to see the biggest living legend in Country Music.
At 8.10 PM (the Next Country Superstar) Charlie Worsham starts his show with a few songs that makes you going to think “he is going to get HUGE” with songs like “You Can’t Break What’s Broken”, “Lawn Chair” and the song that was in the Bones TV series, season nine “Love Don’t Die Easy”.
After his 30 minute show, fans could meet him at the Merchandise stand and The responses where very good although the lady behind me was talking to all his songs that it was just “terrible” from the start to the end.
9.10 PM Kenny Rogers starts his 1,5 hour show with the help of (A grandmother you’ve never seen before) Linda Davis and make a shocking start as a robot. Gladly the way he walked was due to a recent knee-operation, where the wrong knee was replaced according to Stand-up Comedian Kenny Rogers which has a overwhelming appearance as the granddad we always wished to have (gladly I had the luck to have 2 perfect ones) and starts his show with “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town” and told us how Kenneth Rogers becomes Kenny Rogers.
We wish that people like Sheena Easton and Dolly Parton are included at his farewell show “The Gambler’s Last Deal”, but Linda Davis did a very good job with her very expressive appearance as the “alternate”, but Dottie West stays Dottie West. She passed away a few years ago and you see in the eyes of Kenny that she was very special for him. Her voice from the past mixed very well with the incredible live entertainer Rogers and the beautiful “All I Ever Need Is You”, which does not reach a specific tone anymore, but who cares? (some who expected that he is NOT 78 years old).
In case you think the favorite duet is a song with Dolly Parton… it is NOT! It’s Sheena Easton’s “We’ve Got Tonight”.
Besides Lionel Richie’s Lady, a very psychedelical version of “Something’s Burning” from his sixtees period my favorite part of the show (much better than the Original Version). The vibe was so wonderful, that you wish Kenny did not stop singing for another 43 years and make another 75! Albums.
At the final of the show, he sang “You Can’t Make Old Friends” with a beautiful videoclip with fantastic snippets of his incredible career. That was a beautiful flashback and a german fan comments “Kenny Is(t) Cool” and I must admit. She was so right!

Also available their first duet in 2012 “Kuli Kuli”
Incredible comeback of the legendary nineties rockstar Alannah Myles. Her album “85 BPM” sounds as strong as in her glory days.
A mix of old songs like “Black Velvet”, “Leave It Alone (85 BPM), “Comment Ca Va” and “Lover Of Mine” (with Liny Wood) in a new version. In 2008 she recorded an own version of “Faces In The Crowd” (Tom Petty and famous by Lionel Richie) and”I Can’t Stand The Rain” (Ann Peebles) with Jeff Healy, this version is also amazing and Jeff returned in “Anywhere But Home”. That is one of teh brand new songs. You really needs to take a listen to “Only Wings”, this sounds like an incredible rockballad, that should be in the Top 10 charts all over the world.
Really recommended this album (deserve awards!) with 13 tracks and an acoustic version of “Trouble” and 2 remixes of “Black Velvet” by Terry Brown & Veronica Ferraro.
