The Osmonds are unique in their success as a band and as solo performers. They have recorded over 200 albums, selling over 100 million copies with 59 gold and platinum recordings. They have sold out venues worldwide, breaking box office records and received countless awards; most notably in 2003 when they were honoured by the industry and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Now brothers Wayne, Merrill, Jay and Jimmy are back with their biggest ever UK tour to date. Entitled The Osmonds – Final Tour – Up Close & Personal, the show takes in 50 dates, launching March 9 at Bristol's Colston Hall. The tour will take fans on a journey through their many unforgettable hits – from classics such as One Bad Apple, Down By The Lazy River, Let Me In and Love Me For A Reason to Crazy Horses and Long Haired Lover From Liverpool – the 1972 number One from Jimmy Osmond, who has more recently appeared in London's West End in Grease and Chicago.
In recent years, Jimmy, the junior member of the group, has embarked on a career in musical theatre and has also become a familiar face on British TV, appearing in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Come Dine With Me and Popstar to Operastar.
