At RFD-TV The Theatre, 4080 W Highway 76 (intersection of 76 & 376, formerly the Ray Stevens & Country Tonite Theatre).
Final season in 2013!
Roy Rogers, Jr & the High Riders are back this season (2013) at the RFD-TV The Theatre, starting in April paying tribute to The King of the Cowboys, Roy Rogers.
A show full of wonderful western "cowboy" music, Roy Rogers Jr. welcomed a new addition to the show in 2008: his son Dustin Roy Rogers, Roy and Dale's grandson. Dustin rejoins his dad in the show for 2013!
Roy "Dusty" Rogers Jr. and his band, the High Riders, perform the greatest of America's western music in this tribute to the cowboy and cowboy icons. Hear "Cool Water," "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds," "Blue Prairie," and more. Dusty, an affable gent if there ever was one, also shares tales of growing up with his folks, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and answers any questions the audience might have. You'll see why Dusty was named FAME's (Families Advocating Moral Entertainment) 2009 & 2010 Western Music Artist of the Year.
The High Riders includes Tommy Nallie, John Fullerton, Nathan Agdeppa, Greg Moody and Dino Strunk.
Shows last 2 hours with intermission.
Fun fact from January 2, 2012: RFD-TV's parade float in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA featured Dusty, Dustin and the High Riders. They sang Happy Trails to celebrate the 100th birthday of Roy Rogers. The float was escorted by 100 golden Palominos. Watch this video to see the float in the T of R Parade
