In a career spanning 50 years, Engelbert Humperdinck's unique voice, endearing humor, and old-school charm has won him millions of fans around the globe.
He has generated sales in excess of 140 million records (including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum), four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe, and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Las Vegas Walk of Fame. He has performed for the Queen four times, several presidents and many heads of state, and recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock, and even gospel.
Humperdinck exploded on to the music scene in the sixties along with The Beatles and Rolling Stones. His sixties did not so much swing as rage. The shy, handsome boy from Leicester became friends with Elvis Presley and the two legends often performed each other’s songs. His first single in the charts, “Release Me,” was No. 1 in 11 countries and entered the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts.
His music has transcended time; his voice still reaching out to fans old and new. Now, this icon of 20th century music will entertain a captive audience at the Grand Theatre for one legendary night
