LONDON (Reuters) – Veteran country singer Kenny Rogers says it may be time to call it quits on overseas tours – but not before a stint at Britain’s famed Glastonbury festival and a world music gig alongside Berber musicians in Morocco.
Rogers, 74, reckons the time he spends overseas may be too much for his family.
“I have identical twin boys that are nine years old (and) I don’t like being that far away from them,” five-time married Rogers told Reuters in a telephone interview.
