Kenny's back

Country superstar Kenny Rogers is bound for Tamworth to headline the 2015 Country Music Festival.

The Grammy legend will perform for crowds on January 25, 2015, as part of his Through the Years World Tour.

The afternoon concert at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre (TRECC) will be the music icon's second stage visit to Tamworth after wowing crowds in 2011.

“It’s fantastic to have an artist of Kenny’s calibre come back to our Festival," TCMF Festival Manager Gavin Flanagan said on Monday following the announcement.

But you will have to get in quick with tickets set to go on sale on Friday August 1.
