Jimmy Osmond, who celebrated his 50th anniversary in the music business in 2016, returns to the UK in 2018 with his hugely popular show - A Tribute to Andy Williams – Moon River and Me.

Packed with award-winning music, nostalgic footage and Jimmy’s own personal memories of Andy Williams, the 36-date tour will run from January 31 through March 16 2018.

And it all kicks off on January 31, when the Long Haired Lover from Liverpool singer steps onto stage at The Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch.

Jimmy – who made his performance debut at the age of three on television on the Andy Williams Show – will perform many of the romantic songs that made the legendary singer so popular including Music To Watch Girls By, Happy Heart, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Almost There, and of course the song that was to become his theme, Moon River.

The youngest member of the world-famous Osmond family is joined by The Moon River Band with special guest stars including Charlie Green and naturally, a show with an Osmond would not be complete without some of the chart-topping hits that made Jimmy and his brothers famous.

With a vast array of Platinum and Gold discs to his credit, Jimmy Osmond’s multi-faceted career has seen him star in the West End production of Grease, a role he recently reprised in selected dates around the UK and tours with Boogie Nights, and Chicago.

The international star has even appeared in British Panto; produced television specials amongst which was The Osmonds’ 50th Anniversary for PBS and perhaps most unbelievably, written and illustrated the award winning children’s book Awesome Possum Family Band.

The book saw Jimmy use his cartooning skills to create the characters himself.

And if all that was not enough for a prolific 54-year-old, Jimmy was even a finalist in the 2016 Celebrity MasterChef series.
