Jimmy Osmond, who celebrates his 50th anniversary in the music business in 2016, returns to the UK this autumn with a brand new live show – A Tribute to Andy Williams – Moon River and Me. Packed with award-winning music, nostalgic footage and Jimmy’s own personal memories of Andy Williams, the 27 date nationwide tour will begin on 26th September and run through until 30 October.
Jimmy who made his performance debut at the age of three on television on the Andy Williams Show will perform many of the romantic songs that made the legendary singer so popular including Music To Watch Girls By, Happy Heart, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Almost There, May Each Day, Days of Wine and Roses and of course the song that was to become his theme, Moon River.
The youngest member of the world-famous Osmond family is joined by The Moon River Band with special guest stars Charlie Green and Emily Penny, and naturally, a show with an Osmond would not be complete without some of the chart-topping hits that made Jimmy and his brothers famous.
With an array of Platinum and Gold discs to his credit, Jimmy Osmond’s multi-faceted career has seen him perform in theatre including the West End production of Grease and UK tours with Boogie Nights, and Chicago, produce television specials amongst which was The Osmonds 50th Anniversary for PBS and author and illustrate the award winning children’s book Awesome Possum Family Band, in which Jimmy used his cartooning skills to create the characters himself
