    Kenny Rogers is saying goodbye to Australia and New Zealand, at least in a touring capacity. The singer will head Down Under in January and February for his Farewell Down Under Tour, which will include his final concerts in Australia and New Zealand ever.

    Wow. That is so final.

    The tour will begin in Sydney on January 23, 2015, followed by shows across the country in Tamworth, Newcastle, Melbourne, Launceston, Gold Coast, Townsville, Perth and Adelaide. Then, he will host a concert in Christchurch, New Zealand, before concluding the tour in Hamilton, New Zealand, on February 15, 2015.

    While the concerts scheduled in January and February 2015 will be Rogers' final performances in Australia and New Zealand, the legendary vocalist will continue to tour in other parts of the world.

    So he is not hanging it up altogether.

    "For all of the traveling I've done around the world, Australia and New Zealand remain two of my favorite places to perform," Rogers said. "When I was with the First Edition, we made this same trip several times, and no matter how many times I've gone, I've always loved the audiences Down Under. They have a great sense of humor, and they've always treated me with such great respect, so for that, I say thank you."

    That's why Kenny Rogers is a class act. He is giving 'em one last hurrah.
