She’s a little bit country… and he’s a little bit rock and roll. Popular ‘70s siblings Donny and Marie Osmond are headed for a six month residency at the Flamingo Showroom in Las Vegas beginning Sept. 9.
Their 90-minute extravaganza, presented by Danny Gans and Chip Lightman of GansLight Entertainment, will highlight Donny and Marie‘s greatest hits in a multimedia spectacle presented on a custom designed stage with multiple video screens and a large cast of dancers. It also marks the first time in 29 years that they will have performed an extended residency in Las Vegas.
“My version of a variety show has been what Vegas has known thus far. What we have now is a true variety show which conveys the real essence of America and the country’s love of homegrown talent,” said Gans in a statement. “When you couple that element with the current Las Vegas entertainment landscape, we felt Donny and Marie provided the perfect combination and something that no one else was making available.”
Showtime will be 7:30 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday, with an additional Saturday matinee at 3:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale April 28 and will be priced between $85 and $115 (plus tax and fees). A limited number of VIP packages are available for $250 (plus tax and fees), which includes a special after-show commemorative photo with the Osmonds.
