A music legend is coming to the Tennessee Theatre.

Kenny Rogers will headline the annual "Stars on Stage" fundraiser on Saturday, May 17, at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Historic Tennessee Theatre Foundation to support ongoing operations and maintenance for the theatre in the coming year.

"Stars on Stage is our only annual fundraising event, and we rely on its proceeds for our operation and maintenance budget for the year," said Becky Hancock, Historic Tennessee Theatre Foundation interim executive director. "Stars on Stage continues the rich tradition of world-class performers appearing at the Tennessee Theatre who truly embody the soul and passion we all feel for this community treasure."

Tickets for "Stars on Stage" will be available for purchase on Friday, February 21 at 10 a.m. Regular admission tickets for the Kenny Rogers concert will be available for $57 (plus applicable service fees) at Knoxville Tickets outlets, by phone at 865-684-1200, at the Tennessee Theatre box office on Clinch Avenue, and online at www.tennesseetheatre.com.
