Osmond to sing songs of legendary performer
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.
