THE LEGENDARY OSMONDS ON TOUR
The career from The Osmonds started in the early ’60s when they regularly performed at the Andy Williams show. After doing this for seven seasons the brothers then themselves started writing and composing, what eventually resulted in a contract with MGM Records.
In 1971 this led to a number one hit in America with “One bad Apple”. In The Netherlands the big success came in 1972 after The Osmonds performed in “Eén van de Acht”, the quiz from Mies Bouwman. Bouwman stated – 41 years later – in an interview with the magazine “Weekend”: “I will never forget the performance of The Osmonds. The public was dead quiet and watched with amazement at the noisily Donny Osmond and his musically brothers”.
In one go they became teen idols and they started touring around the world. The song “Crazy Horses” became a nr. 1 hit, the successor “Down by the Lazy River” also became a nr. 1 hit.
After that several hits followed, like “Goin’Home, “One way ticket to Anywhere”, Hold her Tight”, “Love me for a Reason” en “Having a Party”.
On May 17th, 1975 the brothers played their last concert in The Netherlands and the opening act was provided by Bolland & Bolland. Currently – after 42 years – the band is back on Dutch soil and will perform a number of concerts, under which in P3 Purmerend.
