Kenny Rogers' last world tour documented on DVD/CD

I was fortunate enough to attend his final OC show, so I'm very interested in seeing this...

Kenny Rogers' final tour, 'The Gambler's Last Deal' celebrated his entire career. The DVD part of the package with a CD includes archive footage, music videos and past concert performances from Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss and Dottie West.

Filmed at the London Palladium in 2017 at the end of his final world tour and combined with live footage from other venues on the tour, the concert DVD is also interspersed with interviews with his two sons, fellow artists and writers who helped shape his musical career (Lionel Richie, manager Ken Kragen, producers David Foster and Larry Butler, president of Capitol Records Jim Mazza).

Special guest Linda Davis (the mother of Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott) joins Kenny on some songs.

This DVD/CD set is packaged in a deluxe digipak and includes a booklet of vintage photos of Kenny and a forward by writer/producer Kelly Junkermann. A selection of songs from the concert are featured on the bonus CD.

Extras include a music video of Buy Me A Rose, a backstage rehearsal from 2005 of Someone, Somewhere Tonight and additional interviews with members of Kenny's band, cast and crew.
