The sumptuous space of the Mahaffey Theater becomes a well of melodious charm as two of the most esteemed acts in country music grace October with homespun hits and old-fashioned showmanship. Legendary Grammy-winning crooner and beard-of-all-trades Kenny Rogers shares his noble, husky yogurt voice and earnest gait in support of his latest album, The Love of God, which is normally available only at Cracker Barrel. Mixing more than 50 years of timeless classics, Kenny plays masterful raconteur to generations of fans with songs that hold up like bomb shelters built out of diamonds.
Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers bring four decades of reciprocating notes and top 40 hits to the stage on October 25. Known for the easygoing aural lotion of songs such as “All the Gold in California” and “Broken Lady,” this beloved Texas trio casts an affable spell throughout its fun-filled show. Audiences listen intently as Larry’s lilting falsetto merges with the souring concinnity of brothers Steve and Larry in ways that shame even the warbling ghosts of the Wright Brothers.
The Mahaffey Theater
Just minutes from downtown's bustling shops and overlooking the glassy waters of Tampa Bay, The Mahaffey Theater's picturesque building hosts some of Florida's most entertaining art and performance offerings. Originally built in 1965, the renovated building's floor-to-ceiling glass façade pierces the night with softly glowing light, cordially inviting patrons inside and awakening desires in moths that can never be fulfilled. The box-style seating of the theater ensures clear sightlines for all patrons, and its excellent acoustics make the venue suitable for both thunderous rock bands and delicate chamber ensembles.
