Kenny Rogers is demonstrating his talents as a showman. The 74-year-old country legend was among the performers at last weekend's Glastonbury Festival, which the singer admits was an odd booking.
The UK's "Guardian" says early in his set Rogers asked the crowd - comprised primarily of British rock fans half his age - "What's wrong with this picture?" But despite acknowledging he was so "far" out of his comfort zone, Kenny wasn't going to let the audience just sit through his performance.
The singer chastised them when they didn't chime in on cue for "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town," saying his Moroccan audience last week "sang better" and they "don't even speak English!"
Concertgoers began to warm up when Rogers sang his '60s psychedelic hit "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)," and were open to some coaching to sing along with "Have a little Faith In Me."
And by the time Kenny sang "Lucille" and "The Gambler" he'd won them over, and was performing for a crowd of new fans.
