Donny Osmond UK Tour Announced
Following his 2005 extraordinary sell-out shows Donny Osmond today announces his return to the UK stage, much to the delight of his legions of fans. Donny is back with ‘Love Songs of The 70's’, a brand new collection of hits from the 1970's including "Mandy", "I Can See Clearly Now", "How Deep Is Your Love" and many more of his favourites from the era.
During the early to mid-Seventies, Osmondmania, in America and the U.K., resembled Beatlemania “to almost the smallest detail. Fans chasing us everywhere, being locked in our hotel rooms, police escorts, girls hiding in our closets -- we lived our own version of A Hard Day's Night."
Donny became was the unequivocal star of the group, the one who sang the solos and elicited the biggest screams. “It was uncomfortable at first,” he admits, “especially given the fact that my brothers started the group. But when a band becomes successful, you don’t mess with what works. True, we were singing teenybopper stuff, but it was selling -- selling more than anyone could have imagined.”
These were great times, but after his four year run co-hosting the phenomenally successful TV show Donny and Marie on ABC (remember, he was the one who was “a little bit rock and roll”), Donny found that his clean-cut, bubblegum image had become a liability. “Not only could I not get arrested, I was downright radioactive," he says.
Donny has survived the tracks of time with what is now his 55th studio album, his voice stands the tracks of time too. After one listen to Love Songs Of ‘70s, Donny Osmond has never sounded better.
Catch him performing all these classic songs plus all the favourites at the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Sunday 28th October 2007.
A New Album ‘Love Songs of The 70's, a brand new collection of hits from the 1970's including "Mandy", "I Can See Clearly Now", "How Deep Is Your Love" and many more. Out Now.
