The excitement level was very high on Saturday when Kenny Rogers performed at the Olive and John Diefenbaker Theatre. The fact that Kenny Rogers received cheers and applause upon entering the stage before a single note had been sung or a single word spoken is a testament to his huge popularity.
It was truly a treat to see an artist like Kenny Rogers perform in our very intimate setting.
