Stirling Observer - - THETICKET - Al­bert Halls, Stir­ling

Jimmy Os­mond will star in a spe­cial trib­ute to leg­endary singer Andy Wil­liams at the Al­bert Halls next year.

A Trib­ute to Andy Wil­liams ‘Moon River and Me’ will take place in front of a packed au­di­ence in the city on Fe­bru­ary 15 at 7.30pm.

The show – which is com­ing di­rectly from the USA – will fea­ture a whole host of award-win­ning mu­sic, nos­tal­gic footage and spe­cial mem­o­ries of the Moon River per­former.

Os­mond, who this year marks five decades in show busi­ness, be­gan his per­form­ing ca­reer at the ten­der age of three when he fea­tured with Wil­liams on his tele­vi­sion se­ries.

The Os­mond broth­ers were reg­u­lars on The Andy Wil­liams Show – which ran from 1962 to 1971.

Wil­liams, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 84, sold more than 100 mil­lion records world­wide, and had 15 of his 44 al­bums gold cer­ti­fied. He also re­ceived six Grammy nom­i­na­tions.

The show will see Jimmy per­form some of the vo­cal­ist’s finest works – in­clud­ing Mu­sic to Watch Girls By, Happy Heart, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Al­most There, May Each Day and Days of Wine and Roses.

Join­ing him on stage for the show will be spe­cial guest stars Char­lie Green and Emily Penny and to­gether they will also per­form some of the chart-top­ping mu­sic which made Jimmy and his broth­ers so fa­mous.

Tick­ets for back bal­cony are £32/29.50 while stalls and front-side bal­cony are £30/27.50. Any­one who buys ten tick­ets will get an ex­tra one free.

There are also VIP pack­ages on of­fer at £75. This will al­low peo­ple to en­joy the pre-show sound check, meet Jimmy and have a photo taken with him, get an au­to­graph, hear him and the band sing a unique song which won’t be part of the show and get their hands on a com­pli­men­tary CD.

This will also se­cure fron­trow seats.

Jimmy Os­mond is the youngest mem­ber of the sib­ling mu­si­cal group the Os­monds and as a solo per­former he has had six gold records, one plat­inum record and two gold al­bums.

The 54-year-old was, as nine-yearold ‘lit­tle Jimmy Os­mond’ en­tered into the Guin­ness Book of World Records in 1972 when he be­came the youngest per­former to have a UK num­ber-one with ‘Long Haired Lover From Liver­pool’.

Show­man Jimmy Os­mond will play some of Andy Wil­liams’ best-known hits. Right, Jimmy and his broth­ers were reg­u­lars on The Andy Wil­liams Show – which ran from 1962 to 1971
