Kenny Loggins Adds to Final Tour, ‘This Is It’

Share This:

Celebrating a career that has seen him perform his classic hits for nearly six decades, Kenny Loggins has announced additional dates for his final concert tour. The “This Is It” tour began March 10, 2023. Tickets are available here.

From the original Jan. 17 press announcement: Loggins first burst on the music scene as half of the hit duo Loggins & Messina and continued with his own successful solo career, during which time he racked up a series of gold and platinum-selling albums and singles. The two-time Grammy winner has earned the nickname of “The Soundtrack King” thanks to his indelible contributions to films such as Caddyshack, Footloose and Top Gun (and now the 2022 blockbuster, Top Gun: Maverick).

“It’s been an amazing journey since starting with Jimmy Messina in 1971, and I’m fortunate to have had such a long touring career,” Loggins says. “I don’t see this as the end of my professional career, but certainly a halt to the grind of major touring.” He stresses that there was no overarching reason to say farewell to touring, other than “after spending a lifetime on the road, I want to have more time at home.”

Loggins, who turned 75 on Jan. 7, has sold over 25 million albums worldwide thanks to such as big hits as “I’m Alright,” “Footloose,” “Danger Zone,” and, of course, “This Is It,” among many others.

Loggins collaboration with Jim Messina includes “Danny’s Song,” “House at Pooh Corner,” “Love Song” and “Your Mama Don’t Dance” – as well as his smash duet with Stevie Nicks, “Whenever I Call You Friend” and the rock radio favorite, “Don’t Fight It,” on which he teamed up with Steve Perry.

“I’ll be playing songs that I feel sum up the emotional story of my music,” Loggins says about the upcoming stage show. “This will include 90 percent of the hits and 10 or so percent of the deeper cuts.”

As for possible guests on the “This Is It” tour, Loggins hints that fans can expect some surprises. “We’ve been talking about it,” he says. “We’re hoping to have some of my longtime friends sit in whenever possible.”

    I believe Kenny opened for Fleetwood Mac on a tour in the late 70s. His was definitely the better show, at least the night I saw them in the fall of 1977.
