Donny Osmond Tickets for Sale

Donny Osmond has had many musical lives. As a very young child, he and his brothers started out as kid singers on The Andy Williams Show. In the late '60s and early '70s, fueled by the success of The Jackson Five, the Osmonds became close teenybopper competitors, with their own slew of hits.

Donald Clark Osmond, 9 December 1957, Ogden, Utah, USA. The most successful solo artist to emerge from family group the Osmonds, Donny was particularly successful at covering old hits. His first solo success came in the summer of 1971 with a cover version of Billy Sherrill's "Sweet And Innocent", which reached the US Top 10. The follow-up, a revival of Gerry Goffin/Carole King's "Go Away Little Girl" (previously a hit for both Steve Lawrence and Mark Wynter) took Osmond to the top of the US charts. "Hey Girl", once a success for Freddie Scott, continued his US chart domination, which was now even more successful than that of the family group. By the summer of 1972, Osmondmania reached Britain, and a revival of Paul Anka's "Puppy Love" gave Donny his first UK number 1. The singer's clean-cut good looks and perpetual smile brought him massive coverage in the pop press, while a back catalogue of hit songs from previous generations sustained his chart career. "Too Young" and "Why" both hit the UK Top 10, while "The Twelfth Of Never" and "Young Love" both reached number 1. His material appeared to concentrate on the pangs of adolescent love, which made him the perfect teenage idol for the period. In 1974, Donny began a series of duets with his sister Marie Osmond, which included more UK Top 10 hits with "I'm Leaving It All Up To You" and "Morning Side Of The Mountain". It was clear that Donny's appeal was severely circumscribed by his youth and in 1977 he tried unsuccessfully to reach a more mature audience with Donald Clark Osmond. Although minor hits followed, the singer's appeal was waning alarmingly by the late 70s.
After the break-up of the group in 1980, Donny went on to star in the 1982 revival of the musical Little Johnny Jones, which closed after only one night on Broadway. A decade later, a rugged Osmond returned to music with "I'm In It For Love" and the more successful "Soldier Of Love", which reached the US Top 30. Most agreed that his attempts at mainstream rock were much more impressive than anyone might have imagined. Osmond proved his versatility again in the 90s by playing the lead in Canadian and North American productions of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's musical Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. When he hung up his loincloth at Toronto's Elgin Theatre in May 1997, after almost five years and 2,000 performances as the biblical son of Jacob, it was to join the cast of the 60th Hill Cumorah Pageant, America's Witness To Christ. In this upstate New York outdoor production, Osmond portrayed a prophet of the Mormon faith. A year later he reunited with Marie to co-host the television talk show, Donny And Marie.

Osmond returned to the studio in the new millennium to record a collection of Broadway hits. Both this album and the follow-up Somewhere In Time: Classic Love Songs were surprising UK bestsellers. In 2004, Osmond teamed up with former boy band star Gary Barlow to write and record a new studio album. The singer enjoyed a surprise UK Top 10 hit in October with the single "Breeze On By".
