“The Gambler” Kenny Rogers Plays Palace; Boz Scaggs in Concert at CLMH (CPs Sun., 10/26/14)

1) Country Music Hall of Famer, actor, businessman, star of a Geico TV commercial, are all labels that can be applied to Kenny Rogers. With awards, acting roles, and songs too numerous to mention, Rogers is the consummate entertainer. His song catalog includes gems such as “Lady,” “The Gambler,” and “Don’t Fall in Love With a Dreamer.” Rogers also starred in five television movies based on the “The Gambler” character in his song. Fans of the TV show “Seinfeld” will remember the episode when a Kenny Rogers Roasters chicken restaurant opened across the street from Jerry’s apartment building and caused havoc for himself and Kramer. 2 p.m. The Palace Theater, 21 West Otterman St., Greensburg.

2) Esteemed jazz/soul/rock artist Boz Scaggs is set to fill the Carnegie Library Music Hall of Homestead with smooth melodies and flowing chord progressions. A veteran of over 50 years in the music industry, Scaggs rose to fame in the ’60s as the guitarist for the Steve Miller Band before gaining further acclaim as a solo act in the 70’s. These projects have earned the 70-year-old Scaggs significant accolades, including four top-20 albums and six top-20 singles. Major hits have included “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle.” Scaggs has compiled a discography of over 20 albums, including his latest, Memphis, which was released in March 2013. 8 p.m. 510 East 10th St., Munhall.

3) The Steelers—pumped up after their amazing victory against the Houston Texans—turn their attention to the big task at hand, playing the Indianapolis Colts and their premier QB, Oliver Luck. It will be interesting to see what the Steelers have left in their offensive bag of tricks. Kickoff’s at 4:25 p.m. Heinz Field, 100 Art Rooney Way, North Shore.
