Get Footloose in the Danger Zone
'80s pop star Kenny Loggins calls it quits with final tour coming to Fort Worth
Pop star Kenny Loggins, best known for his run of hit songs in movies in the 1980s, will come to Fort Worth as part of his final concert tour, "This Is It," playing at Dickies Arena on April 28.
Celebrating a career that has seen him perform his catalog of songs across the globe for nearly six decades, Loggins will go to at least 11 cities throughout 2023, starting in Sarasota, Florida on March 10. The Fort Worth date is his only stop in Texas.
Loggins first came to fame as half of the duo Loggins & Messina with Jim Messina in the 1970s. Although he had some modest hits on his first few solo albums, he soon earned the nickname of “The Soundtrack King” thanks to songs like "I'm Alright" in Caddyshack, the title song in Footloose, and "Danger Zone" in Top Gun (reprised in the recent 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 said in a statement. “I don’t see this as the end of my professional career, but certainly a halt to the grind of major touring.”
On the “This Is It” tour, Loggins will trace his musical history with a brand-new, career-spanning stage show, one that might include some special surprise guests. Yacht Rock Revue will be the opening act in Fort Worth.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Friday, January 20 at 10 am at Ticketmaster.com. Fan Club members and the public will have an opportunity to also purchase one of two VIP packages being offered specially for this final tour: The Footloose VIP package, which comes with a premium seat and exclusively designed merch offering, or the “This Is It” package which offers purchasers an inside look into Kenny’s world on the road with a guided backstage tour, access to soundcheck, group photo with Kenny, and special autographed items.
