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.
