Kenny Loggins broke into the national and international music scene in 1971 as part of the duo Loggins & Messina. He and Jim Messina released the album Sittin’ In to critical acclaim that year. And now, in 2023, after more than fifty years of concert tours, Kenny Loggins has announced his “This Is It” final concert tour.
Don’t worry, he is not retiring from the music industry. He just doesn’t want to have to endure the grind of constant touring and traveling anymore after this, and who can blame him? His website shows 12 dates for this year, but there is also a “Stay tuned for more dates…” notation at the top of his schedule. There are no shows scheduled for Las Vegas yet, but I’m sure one of our hotel-casino-resorts will book him. If you would like to see his current schedule of dates for his final tour, CLICK HERE.
Throughout his career, Kenny Loggins has won two Grammy Awards; one for “Song of the Year” for co-writing the Doobie Brothers hit “What A Fool Believes,” and a second for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance” for the song “This Is It.” He was also nominated for a Tony Award, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award for some of his biggest movie hits.
In fact, Kenny Loggins wrote and recorded so many hit songs for movie soundtracks during the 1980’s, he earned the nickname “King of the Movie Soundtrack!” I am sure you will see some of his big movie hits below when we count down his seven best-selling singles of all time. Let’s get to it!
