Engelbert Humperdinck: The 50th Anniversary Tour Returns to The Orleans Showroom Sept. 23-24

Engelbert Humperdinck will bring his 50th Anniversary Tour to The Orleans Showroom on Sept. 23-24.

In the mid-1960s, Humperdinck found early success in Europe with the hit single “Release Me,” which spent 56 weeks in the “Top 50” of the U.K. charts, and reached “No. 1” in 11 countries. Humperdinck followed-up the hit single with the ballads “There Goes My Everything” and “The Last Waltz.” In 1969, his self-titled album peaked at “No. 5” on both the U.S. and U.K. charts.

Humperdinck continued to produce hits in the 1970s, including “After the Lovin’,” which became a “Top Ten” single in the U.S., earning Gold designation. His album of the same name charted in the “Top 20” in the U.S. and was a Double-Platinum success for the singer. As the years went on, Humperdinck became a household name thanks to appearances on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” and popular television shows, including “The Love Boat,” “Hotel” and “Fantasy Island.”

Throughout his career, Humperdinck has recorded 64 Gold albums, 35 Platinum albums and has been nominated for four Grammy Awards. In addition, he has sold more than 140 million records worldwide. Humperdinck has also recorded with several fellow music legends, including Elvis Presley, Elton John, Kenny Rogers, Neil Sedaka, Gloria Gaynor and Willie Nelson.

New Engelbert Humperdinck Duets CD Out Today Features Elton John, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson & more

Engelbert Calling Cover USA Comp 600

“Engelbert Calling” is the new album and the first ever duets album from the legendary and incomparable Engelbert Humperdinck. Known as the world’s greatest balladeer, this collection is his 80th album release, arriving more than 45 years after his massive hit “Release Me” reached #1 on the pop charts and created a worldwide frenzy. This new album comes as a celebration of his remarkable career which has spanned nearly five decades and includes sales of more than 150 million albums world-wide, including 24 certified with platinum status and 63 with gold.

The album was produced by Grammy award winner Martin Terefe, who is best-known for his work with Jason Mraz, James Morrison, KT Tunstall, and Mary J Blige. “Working with Engelbert is such a truly remarkable experience,” Terefe stated when asked about his work with Engelbert. “He is without a doubt one of the best singers around today and brings so much other musical knowledge to the table.”

“He is one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with,” Elton John said about his experience collaborating with Engelbert. “We had a great time singing together and he is so quick, what I call a ‘one-take singer,’ 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever!”

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to partner up with some of the best artists in the history of music.” Engelbert said about the album. “To continue putting out successful albums after 45 years in the business is a real testament to the loyalty of my great fans and this album is a ‘thank you’ to all of them.”

Engelbert Calling is available today at music retailers nationwide and online.

Music Pioneer Neil Sedaka Brings His Timeless Hits to The Orleans Showroom September 6-7

Music Pioneer Neil Sedaka Brings His Timeless Hits to The Orleans Showroom September 6-7

With a successful career spanning six decades, Neil Sedaka’s timeless standards have influenced the sound of popular music. Renowned for his work as a singer, performer, producer and songwriter, Sedaka will perform at The Orleans Showroom on September 6 and 7.

Releasing countless hit singles, platinum and gold records, Sedaka is recognized as one of rock and pop music’s legendary pioneers, with songs that continue to stand the test of time.  Starting in his high school years, Sedaka formed a vocal group, The Tokens, which recorded two hit singles. Later Sedaka was introduced to Howard Greenfield and together they began a successful songwriting partnership in the late 1950s, selling more than 25 million records during their 30-year collaboration.

In 1958, at the age of 18, Sedaka was catapulted into stardom after Connie Francis performed his song, “Stupid Cupid.”  Francis then sang the theme song Sedaka and Greenfield had written for the 1960 MGM spring break movie classic, “Where The Boys Are,” which would end up becoming her biggest hit.  Sedaka parlayed these hits into a contract with RCA as a writer and performer, and began recording his own material.

Sedaka’s chart-toppers included “The Diary,” “Oh, Carol,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “Calendar Girl” and “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.” In addition, Sedaka continued writing for other performers, including Tom Jones’ album “Puppet Man,” The Fifth Dimension’s album “Workin’ on a Groovy Thing” and for The Monkees’ album “When Love Comes Knocking at Your Door.”

Later in his career, Sedaka returned to the classical roots of his early years.  With original romantic lyrics written by Sedaka and set to the music of Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Tchaikovsky, “Classically Sedaka” went on to earn a gold record in Europe.

Sedaka has been recognized for his musical contributions by numerous prestigious organizations including receiving recognition by the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, a street named after him in his hometown of Brooklyn and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In 2013, Neil recently released “The Real Neil,” which includes new material, along with a few classics.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $39.95 plus tax and fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or by visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
