Donny & Marie - Flamingo Las Vegas New Home for Osmonds

The last few days have been hectic with me having so many people in town, but tonight I had a chance for a quick escape at a new show. Donny and Marie Osmond have opened at the Flamingo Hilton, and after seeing tonight's performance it's no wonder they were sold out on a Tuesday night. They were absolutely fantastic, performing an energetic and entertaining show, and were in touch with their audience with their down to earth appeal. It's no surprise that they received two standing ovations for the performance that covered both of their long careers. As you can see from the picture below, they even cover the front of the building!

The brother and sister duo are backed up with an excellent band the covers their wide range of music, from country and rock to showtunes and big band. Marie even does one opera number, and her voice is absolutely heavenly. This is all done around a cast of dancers, along with video screens showing them live, and clips and effects that Donny produced himself and pulls from his own servers in Provo Utah.

They both look terrific, and if there's any Donny Osmond fans out there, eat your heart out! My first sighting of him backstage was as he came out of his dressing room while putting on his shirt. Marie is just as sweet and beautiful as ever, just like the last time I saw her at a wedding here in Las Vegas.

After hearing her schedule, mine didn't seem anywhere near as bad. Besides doing 6 shows 5 days a week, she's squeezed in 4 days of shooting new NutraSystem commercials in between. With 8 children and a new puppy, I have no idea how she has so much energy to do her show, and then meet and greet some of her fans afterward. She still wasn't done when she slipped to the ready room backstage to greet us, and both her and Donny did a few pictures before they had to run off for more.

So a big thank you to Donny and Marie for their excellent performance and hospitality. Also a big thank you to Marie's manager Karl, and to Patty for getting us into the sold out show on short notice.

As I've said before, this is one of the reasons Las Vegas is such an incredible place to live. Having access to so many great shows, entertainers, and such a wide variety of entertainment to chose from every night of the week.

<<<  UPDATE  >>>

Donny & Marie did sign off on a contract extension, and are now currently scheduled to appear at the Flamingo Las Vegas through Oct. 2010.
