Jimmy Osmond...Christmas shows all around!

Hi friends!

I can't believe how fast the Christmas show season in Branson, Missouri has gone! Our last show for the season at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center is this Friday, December 9th (hmmmm...I think that is an Osmond's birthday ;-).

We immediately get on a bus - the whole Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza cast - and head to the midwest for three road dates with The Lennons.

Saturday, December 10 - Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert, Ohio
Sunday, December 11 - Pfeiffer Hall in Naperville, Illinois
Monday, December 12 - Stambaugh Auditorium in Youngstown, Ohio


December 13, my brothers Merrill and Jay, Charlie Green, and Steve Hewlett board our flight to take us to the U.K. for the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza tour there!

Our first show is December 14 at Shanklin Theatre, Isle of Wight. We will be in the U.K. right through the holiday season, with our final Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza performance for 2016 at City Hall Newcastle December 30. You can see where all of our dates for this tour will be on osmond.com.


Looks like I'll start off 2017 with the month of January off to enjoy spending with my family. :-)

Jimmy Osmond...It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Hi everybody,

We're into our first week of the Christmas season in Branson, Missouri and it has been so much fun being back at my theater, the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center. It is so nice to be performing Christmas songs once again with my brothers, Merrill and Jay, and it is always great fun to work with The Lennons.

This season commemorates my 50th year of doing Christmas shows with my amazing brothers, and it is kind of a melancholy time for me. Next year it will be a different show here in Branson as it will be the 25th anniversary of the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre (which we now refer to as the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center). We'll be doing a different show for the Christmas season next year in celebration of the theatre's 25th anniversary.

I hope you can get to Branson, Missouri and see Merrill, Jay and me perform in the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza. In the show we also have The Lennon Sisters, The Lennon Granddaughters, Charlie Green, Rick Thomas, Pasha and Aliona, Steve Hewlett, the Andy Williams Singers, the Moon River Dancers and the Moon River Band. We have music, magic, comedy, dancing...the works!  

We will be performing through December 9th, and then take the show on the road for three U.S. dates December 10-11-12. After that, Merrill, Jay and I, along with Charlie Green and Steve Hewlett, head over to the U.K. with the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza. You can get all of the details on our website.

Also appearing this Christmas season at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center...the legendary Lettermen and the new smash hit, "Hallmark Presents Maxine's Christmas Carol." Both of these shows run through December 10th, so I hope you can get by to see them too.

When our Christmas season ends, we complete our 2016 season at the Andy Williams PAC. It has been a fantastic year full of star-studded entertainment. Looking back, we opened the 2016 season in March with my friend, the amazing Illusionist Rick Thomas. April 2016, I joined the roster with my tribute show to Andy Williams, "Moon River and Me" with special guests my brother, Jay Osmond, Charlie Green and Chipper Lowell. The Lettermen started up their season with us in May, and the legendary a cappella musical group Rockapella came on board in June and July. 

Our 2016 Celebrity Weekend Series kicked-off with the very talented country star, Jennifer Nettles and CMT's Next Women of Country Tour featuring Brandy Clark, Lindsay Ell and Tara Thompson. Country music's Leann Rimes also paid us a visit, and it was so much fun to have Ray Stevens with us again this season. We were very happy to welcome back comedian, singer, and impressionist Terry Fator direct from Las Vegas. We also hosted the Beautiful Offerings Tour with Christian sensations Big Daddy Weave, Plumb and We Are Messengers. Another hit show from Vegas joined us with the Michael Jackson tribute - MJ Live. Next up were legends Air Supply and David Cassidy. We were pleased to host funnymen Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy, and were very happy to have country music icon Loretta Lynn back on our stage, this time with EmiSunshine. Our Celebrity Weekends Series finished off with the very funny Jeanne Robertson. 

It won't be long and we'll be starting up our 2017 season at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center, which promises to be an exciting celebration of the 25th anniversary of our theater. But for now, I hope you'll come and celebrate the Christmas season with us...it really IS "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

Jimmy Osmond...come cruise with me in 2017!

Hi everyone! I'm back in the U.S., on a layover on my way to Branson, Missouri. What an amazing Moon River & Me Tour we had in the U.K. I hope those of you who were able to make it to one of our shows enjoyed yourselves - we sure had fun!

Now, we are excited to bring in the holiday season in Branson, Missouri. In Branson, the holiday season officially starts November 1st...TOMORROW! I love that we are able to continue with the tradition of Andy Williams - Mr. Christmas - by performing with our friends, The Lennons, in the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza. Take a look at all that we have going on at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center between now and December 10.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have seen my announcement about my cruise coming in 2017! This Moon River & Me Tour has been so much fun, we decided to do a Moon River & Me at Sea cruise. My wife, Michelle, will be joining me, along with Charlie Green - who is an amazing singer and part of the tour. It is a five day cruise on Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas that begins August 26, 2017 with a destination of Bermuda! I hope you'll consider joining us as you plan your fun for 2017 - I think it is really going to be a great time! For more details and to make reservations - click here. Let's go cruising! :-)

Jimmy Osmond wishing brother Tom a happy birthday!

Yep!...There's another October Osmond birthday! :-) My big brother Tom was born October 26. You've probably heard me say many times that our oldest brothers, Virl and Tom, are my heroes. They are both so special to me. Tom loves to make people smile, and he's very good at making that happen. I wish him a happy birthday - I love him with all my heart and hope he has the best day ever!

It has just been so fun over here in the U.K. with the Moon River & Me Tour. Four more shows and then we'll be headed back to Branson, Missouri for the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center. Can you believe the holiday season is almost here already!? And the holiday season always starts early in Branson. :-) I hope you'll come out and see us if you find yourself anywhere near Branson. It will be me, Merrill, Jay, Charlie Green, The Lennon Sisters, The Lennon Granddaughters, and a whole lot more!

I'm also really excited about a new show that will be coming to the Andy Williams PAC for the holidays...Hallmark Presents Maxine's Christmas Carol. It is really going to be a fun show!

I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it to these last few Moon River & Me shows here in the U.K., and I appreciate the support all of you have given to me while on this tour. And don't forget, we're headed back your way beginning December 14 - we're bringing the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza to the U.K.!
