Mohegan Sun host Kenny Rogers X'mas show

24 October 2007

UNCASVILLE, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Kenny Rogers Christmas & Hits Tour, one of the longest running Christmas tours in the country, is coming to Uncasville for a performance on Friday, December 21st at 8:00pm in Mohegan Sun Arena.

Tickets are $35.00 and go on sale Saturday, October 27th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to; call any Ticketmaster Charge by Phone number; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet. Tickets may also be purchased at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Sunday, October 28th subject to availability.

Julienne Irwin, semi-finalist on the hit television show America's Got Talent, has joined the 2007 Kenny Rogers Christmas and Hits Tour.

"It's just amazing," Julienne said. "A year ago I was just somebody singing along to the radio and now here I am on the Kenny Rogers Tour! It's such an honor for him to have chosen me to be a part of his show. I just want to prove to all the small town girls out there that anything is possible when you reach for the stars!"

Many performers began their careers working with Rogers. Garth Brooks got his start as part of the show, as did Emmy award winning actor Sean Hayes, star of the hit show Will and Grace. Hayes played an elf on the tour.

"One of the great joys in life is helping out new and upcoming talent and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Julienne has talent," Rogers said. "She doesn't need my help - twenty million people watched her sing and we all agree she is amazing. I can't wait for her to join the tour."

The tour also includes Grammy award winning artist, Linda Davis. A dedicated career woman, consummate entertainer, inspirational motivator, and devoted wife and mother are just a few ways to describe the Grammy winning singer/songwriter. She has built a reputation as a world-class entertainer and is considered one of the best female vocalists in the business by some of her most well known peers. Local children and local choirs are also chosen in each city to sing in the show as well.

"We always try to take it to the limit at Christmas," show Producer Kelly Junkermann said. "We try to change it up every year, building new sets and adding lighting effects. It's also a lot of fun using the local talent. The kids rehearse the afternoon of the show and perform with Kenny that night so it always keeps us on our toes. Kenny and the cast will be singing all the Christmas favorites. As an added bonus Kenny will also be singing many of his hits. It's a show that the whole family will enjoy."
