About the Show
COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND Mickey Gilley and his band take the stage to share his hits and his musical career. This show is full of stories, music, and tender moments. You just never know what Gilley is going to say and do and the audience loves it. Prepare to dance in the aisles, sing along, and laugh with Gilley through an unforgettable evening of entertainment!
“I enjoy performing and singing as much these days as I ever have,” Mickey says. “I joke that I’m semi-retired. Of course, I work just as hard as always. The thing about experience is, it helps you keep your priorities straight. I’m interested in quality now, not quantity. I make sure my business and my life are set up so I can get the most enjoyment out of the things I love. And the thing I love the most is getting on stage and performing a good show for people.”
Mickey has nearly 40 Top-Ten country hits, with 17 songs reaching No. 1 on the country charts. He scored his first string of consecutive number-one hits in the mid-’70s with traditional honky-tonk style songs such as “Roomful of Roses,” “I Overlooked An Orchid,” and “City Lights.”
In the ’80s, he became a smooth crooner of country love songs like “That’s All That Matters To Me,” “Headache Tomorrow, Heartache Tonight,” and “I’m Just A Fool For Your Love,” along with distinctive updates of romantic classics such as “Stand By Me,” “True Love Ways,” and “You Don’t Know Me.”
