If you follow me via Twitter or Facebook, you've probably seen that I've gotten over to the U.K. a little early for the Osmond Brothers concert dates we have coming up. My daughter, Sophia, is with me and we've been having a lot of fun. March 8 we did the Countdown show...

Then, March 11 I hosted a cookery show at the Springfield School in Witney. It was a fundraiser to help raise money for a minibus the school is in need of. It was wonderful to spend time with these great kids! If you'd like a look at the time we spent at Springfield, Witney TV has posted a video.
This Thursday, I meet up with Jay and Merrill for the first of three performance dates in the U.K. this month. We will be at The Concorde in Eastleigh Thursday, the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl Saturday, and Sunday at Butlins Skegness Resort. We've also just recently announced that Jay, Merrill and myself will be a part of the The Legends Live 2017 with eight dates from October 13-22, 2017. We'll be joining Suzi Quatro, David Essex and Hot Chocolate for this exciting arena tour. You can find all of the details on osmond.com.
Back in the States, we've had some excitement with the 25th Anniversary season of my theater in Branson, Missouri - the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center - starting up for 2017. My friend, and amazing illusionist, Rick Thomas opened March 11. Call 800-MOON-094 for tickets or visit andywilliamspac.com. In addition to Rick, my Moon River & Me show opens April 25. We have a whole roster of great entertainment lined up for you - so I hope you'll come and see us! :-)
Also, you may have heard our friend, Shaun Munday (who you'll often see on bass and vocals in Osmond performances), has released a solo CD. He is such a great talent - I hope you'll give his music a listen! Shaun's CD is available on iTunes, Spotify and through his website.
Wow - that is a lot of fun I've been able to share this time! :-)
