Spanning five decades of entertainment, Donny Osmond has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game show, variety show), best-selling author (his autobiography entered the UK bestseller chart at #1), commercial spokesman, motivational speaker, and even a racecar driver.
Throughout his illustrious career, Donny has earned 33 gold records; selling over 100 million albums becoming a worldwide music legend. He has made history by celebrating over 5 decades in show business with the release of his 61st album, One Night Only: a live album accompanied by a DVD of his sold-out UK tour in January, 2017. Currently Donny is hard at work on his 62nd album which is set to be all original music for the performer.
Donny talks about his London Palladium Performance:
"I have been touring, literally all my life, so it’s quite a statement to say that this tour was definitely my favorite that I’ve ever done and I say that for many reasons.
First is the fact that I took the opportunity not only to play the new songs I recorded for my 60th album, but I also went back into my repertoire of fifty-four years in show business and performed so many of my classics from so many different genres of music. The Purple Card segment of this show was kind of risky for me because I just didn’t know what the audience was going to ask of me, but it was fantastic!
Another reason I loved this tour was that the band, the dancers, the crew and everyone involved in not only putting this tour together, but executing it in such a fun and professional way, made it a magnificent experience.
However, by far the greatest reason was you, my loyal fans. You’ve been with me for so many years. Even through those years when it really wasn’t cool to follow and listen to Donny Osmond. You’ve stayed with me through thick and thin and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It’s been a long and winding road as Paul McCartney once said, and I really don’t see the end of my road coming anytime soon. I hope you enjoy this final show of the 2017 UK tour. Here’s to the next one.
