Next week’s The “Gambler’s Last Deal – Last World Tour” concert with Kenny Rogers has been moved from Seven Feather’s Casino Resort to the Jackson County Fair and Exposition Center in Central Point.
The Cow Creek Umpqua Tribal Board decided to make the move so that the show would be more accessible to residents of Jackson County. Profits from the concert will be given to the Southern Oregon Veterans Benefits Vietnam Memorial Wall. That’s a non-profit group based in Medford.
The group is seeking to have a permanent Wall installed in Medford that would be smaller but similar to the Vietnam Veterans Wall in Washington D.C. SOVB plans to build the wall to 360 feet, with its high point being 8 feet at the center angling downward to 4 feet on each end.
The “Gambler’s Last Deal” will be held at the EXPO’s Amphitheater on July 7th at 8:00 p.m. Prior to the concert U.S. veterans will post the colors and Cow Creek CEO Michael Roundeau will sing the National Anthem.
Tickets are $50 and $60 and are available at the Seven Feathers box office at 541-839-1134.
The Cow Creek Umpqua Tribe and EXPO launched a partnership in the summer of 2015. The Tribe pledges to give EXPO $80,000 a year for three years so that EXPO could continue to offer the high quality programs for which it is known.
