Flamingo Las Vegas announces that America's favorite brother-sister duo, Donny & Marie, have extended their contract as the resort's headliners for an additional two years, through Oct. 2012. This marks the second time in less than a year that their run has been extended - Donny & Marie opened at the legendary center-Strip property on Sept. 9, 2008 and the worldwide response was so immediate and overwhelming that after only six weeks their original six-month contract was extended through 2010.
"Donny & Marie are amazing professionals who come to work every night and really leave it all on stage, which is why they continue to be the hottest ticket in town a year after opening," said Don Marrandino, President of Flamingo Las Vegas. "They have recreated the magic of legendary performers on the Strip with their incredible talent and we are thrilled to have them as our headliners for at least the next three years."
"I guess this is a 'lease to own' situation," joked Marie Osmond from backstage. "It's great that the Flamingo is so happy with our show that they want us to 'park it' for another two years. We love the Vegas audiences, so it's all good."
"You mean I have to work with my sister for another two years?" laughed Donny Osmond. "All kidding aside, we love it at the Flamingo and we're excited to continue to entertain the audiences here in Las Vegas for the next few years."
Presented by Chip Lightman Entertainment, Donny & Marie is an energetic, 90-minute variety show that incorporates singing, dancing, comedy and the stars' signature brother-sister banter. The intimate Flamingo showroom allows for plenty of audience interaction, so fans can get up close and personal with Donny & Marie.
Nightly, 60 lucky fans have the chance to purchase VIP ticket packages which include prime seating and a post-show meet-and-greet with Donny & Marie.
Donny & Marie perform at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday. Ticket prices are $90, $104, $120 and $255 (plus tax and fees). Tickets are available at the Flamingo Box Office, by phone at (702) 733-3333 or (800) 221-7299 or by visiting www.flamingolasvegas.com.
