After decades on the road, the Osmond brothers are getting ready for their last concert tour in the United Kingdom.
"My older brothers have been working together for 54 years and that’s a very long time, never having stopped, doing at least 100 shows a year since the beginning," Jimmy Osmond, youngest of the singing Utah siblings, told the British newspaper The Star. "Merrill, who is the lead singer, is going a different direction so we looked at each other and said ‘Let’s do another tour but let’s make this one the last and make it different’."
The Osmonds' 50-date "Up Close and Personal Tour," their last in the UK, runs March 9 to May 6.
Jimmy Osmond has become quite a star in Britain, appearing in West End revivals of "Grease" and "Chicago," touring "panto" plays (it's a British thing - there's no way to explain it), and appearing on British reality TV shows.
