Iconic US artists the Osmonds are preparing to return to the UK with their latest tour – and Island fans will be extra pleased to hear that it culminates at the Isle of Wight’s Shanklin Theatre on December 15.
Based on their new album A Very Merry Rockin’ Christmas, the 18-date tour will see the Osmonds performing old favourites as well as tracks from their new album of festive classics.
The Osmond Brothers – Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay – recorded their debut album in 1963; since that time, and with the addition of Donny, Marie and later Jimmy, the family has released approximately 200 albums, sold over 100 million worldwide, and have 59 gold and platinum records.
The Osmonds have continued to develop their musical talents and abilities, and though Alan and Wayne have now retired, Merrill and Jay continue to perform together – now in their sixth decade performing as a family.
