Kenny Rogers has canceled The Gambler's Last Deal tour due to health concerns, according to a news release from Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort. "His doctors fully expect the outcome to be great, but they have advised him to cancel all performances through the end of the year to focus on recuperation".

He added that he had "never properly thank them for the encouragement and support they've given me throughout my career".

The Music Hall of Fame star was honored for his 60-year career last October at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

The three-time Grammy Award victor, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013, has sold more than 120 million albums and recorded such hits as "Lucille", "The Gambler", "Through the Years", "Lady" and, with Dolly Parton, "Islands in the Stream". Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, and Lionel Richie also made appearances. Unfortunately, he will not be able to perform for the rest of the year.

According to Rolling Stone, Kenny Rogers mentioned his ailing health in passing when he spoke about his retirement previous year. Earlier this year, Paul Simon, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozzy Osbourne and Sir Elton John have all announced they would give up touring following their respective farewell treks.

"The reason is, the record company had said, 'Do you want to do another single, another record?' And I said, 'Nope, because I don't have the energy to promote it, ' and that's not fair to them", Rogers explained. "[Now] they're coming to do things for me and I think that's awesome".

"That's always been kind of a rub with me when people retire 10 times", he said.

Livewire Festival said it hopes to announce a replacement artist for Rogers "very soon".
