Kenny Rogers kicks off Magic Springs concert season.

GOOD BET: Rogers at Hot Springs.
  • GOOD BET: Rogers at Hot Springs.

Season-pass holders to the Magic Springs and Crystal Falls theme park in Hot Springs will be treated tonight (Thursday, May 25) to country music superstar Kenny Rogers at the park’s Timberwood Amphitheater.

Season passes to Magic Springs are $49.95 and are available at the park or via the Internet at www.magicsprings.com.

Along with Rogers’ show, the season pass covers unlimited visits to the theme park and the 16 regular concerts scheduled this summer.

The Rogers show starts at 8 p.m.

Jackie Lovell, the park’s director of sales and marketing, said, “Last season we treated our passholders to The Beach Boys, and the bonus concert was such a success we decided to try to bring in another superstar performer this year. We are fortunate to be able to bring in a star of Kenny Rogers’ magnitude.”

The Houston-born Rogers’ career has spanned nearly 40 years, beginning with the New Christy Minstrels before he formed the First Edition (“I Just Dropped In” and “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town”). His solo career has included such mega hits as “Lucille,” “The Gambler,” “We’ve Got Tonight” and “Lady.” His CD 42 Ultimate Hits illustrates the magnitude of his presence and his familiar raspy voice in pop and country charts.

The first of the regular concert series begins June 3 with the Commodores. Others on the schedule include SHeDaisy, Foreigner, Restless Heart, Shirley Caesar, Air Supply, Click Five, the Spinners, Kansas, the Temptations, Rick Springfield, and the Bellamy Brothers.

For more information, call 501-624-0100.

  • Review: Postmodern Jukebox at Clear Channel Metroplex

    The band’s shows cover most of the songs that have either been Youtube viewing sensations or are already album classics with that PMJ touch, such as Taylor Swift’s “Shake, Shake, Shake” and Radiohead’s “Creep.” Consider us blown away though by the show’s main set concluding number of The Postal Service/Ben Gibbard-penned “Such Great Heights” done as if by the Jackson 5 in an “I Want You Back” styling.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.

  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
