Donny Osmond will perform two shows in NZ


Friday March 24, 2006


will perform two shows in New Zealand


Donny Osmond brings his world concert tour to New Zealand for two shows only on May 9 & 10, 2006. Osmond performs the entire show.

A pop-star performer since the age of five when Donny made his television debut and won the hearts of millions on "The Andy Williams Show" (1963) he still has millions fans worldwide, has made 54 albums and still makes the charts.

After recently appearing on "Larry King Live," these concerts will showcase Donny as a singer/songwriter, adding to his success from teen idol to seasoned stage performer, Emmy-nominated TV host to author of his New York Times best-selling autobiography "Life is what You Make It" (Allen & Unwin).

This must-see concert includes Donny singing some of his greatest hits such as "Puppy Love" and "Soldier of Love" as well as exciting performances from his new CD, What I Meant To Say.

In October 2005, Donny Osmond toured the UK, selling out 15,000-seat arenas and receiving rave reviews, such as:

"At 47 Donny Osmond is an artist to be reckoned with. He was on stage for over 2 hours and it culminated in an energetic performance of Crazy Horses. His concert was simple, just Donny, his band, some lights and a giant screen behind him but it was all we needed. It was pure magic.". Elaine Thelen, BBC - 04/10/2005

"The Manchester M.E.N. Arena may seat thousands of people. But when Donny Osmond played to a near capacity crowd on Saturday night, he had them in the palm of his hand. - Angela Epstein, Manchester Music, - 15/10/2005

His concert was also filmed at the historic Edinburgh Castle in Scotland and will be released in New Zealand as a DVD to coincide with his shows here. Billboard magazine observes, ".an inspired effort from a performer who has been working on his magic for an astonishing 40 years now. And he has never sounded better" and the New York Post adds, "the guy has a flexible tenor with a big theatrical quality."


May 9 - AUCKLAND - Logan Campbell Centre, at 7.30pm

May 10 - WELLINGTON - Events Centre, at 7.30pm
