Legendary Grammy-winning crooner and beard-of-all-trades Kenny Rogers shares his eggnog-rich voice and ambling gait in a showcase celebrating the snowiest, most sock-intensive holiday of year. For half a century, Rogers has built up a catalog of classics such as “The Gambler” and “Islands in the Stream” while also periodically giving into his deep love of gospel. And although he’s a traditionalist, his nonstop performing has kept him in touch with every generation since his career began—Spin praised his appearance as one of the key sets at Bonnaroo this year.
His spiritual side gets a chance to soar alongside his secular storytelling chops on the Christmas and Hits tour. Along with original tunes from his many Christmas albums, Rogers turns to wonder-filled classics including “O Holy Night,” “We Three Kings,” and “Let It Snow.” In both halves of his repertoire, Rogers is likely to roam the audience, inviting sing-alongs and playfully bantering. On last year’s version of the tour, the Kalamazoo Gazette reported that he showed the crowd as much hospitality “as if we were a small gathering of friends instead of a packed house of fans.”<p>
Majestic Theatre San Antonio
Originally built in 1929 to be the most opulent and modern movie theater in Texas, the Majestic Theatre’s extravagant interior still casts a spell over visitors. Ornate, Spanish Baroque towers rise around the auditorium’s stage, making it appear like a castle standing amid walls covered in vines and gently fluttering drapery. The vast blue ceiling captivates eyes with images of the night sky, twinkling stars, drifting clouds, and the faint glimmer of each attendee’s personal spy satellite.
A National Historic Landmark, the Majestic Theatre has beckoned more than 4,000 performances to its sweeping stage since its renovation in 1989 and has been praised by such notable guests as Tony Bennett, Sting, and former first lady Barbara Bush. Inside, a Mediterranean-style cityscape frames the theater's proscenium, and the ceiling swirls with projections of clouds, allowing audience members to release parakeets into the wild during concerts and Broadway shows.
