Engelbert Humperdinck Brings his Legacy of Love to Reno

ehumperdinckNeed a night of romance?  Let Engelbert Humperdinck sweep you off your feet at Silver Legacy Resort Casino!  For more than four decades, this international recording icon has shared a legacy of love with fans of all ages.  Now see him live in the Grande Exposition Hall on Saturday, September 18 at 8 p.m. 

Engelbert revisits many of his timeless and beloved classics on his new tour, promoting his latest album “Legacy of Love.”  The album also includes two never-before-recorded songs, the classic “Over the Rainbow” and the incomparable “My Way.” This is the newest addition to his unmatched musical legacy that includes sales of a staggering 150 million albums worldwide, including 64 Gold and 24 Platinum. Engelbert’s music has withstood the test of time thanks to his sensitive interpretation of lyrics. 

From an early age, Arnold George Dorsey had a passion for music, but it wasn’t until his early manager suggested he devise a new, mysterious stage name that he gained popularity. Dorsey looked to the name of a German composer he enjoyed, thus was born the phenomenon known as Engelbert Humperdinck. 

By the time his first mega-hit “Release Me” went to #1 in 11 different countries, the London Times crowned him “The Premier Voice of the 20th Century.” His inimitable three-and-a–half octave range and ultra smooth onstage charisma won over fans of every generation, in every part of the globe.  He never limited himself to just one genre, recording everything from pop to disco, rock and gospel.  

His career in the ‘70s was punctuated by a steady stream of hits including the Grammy nominated “After the Lovin’.” In 1978 he received a “Georgie Award” from the American Guild of Variety Artists recognizing him as “Entertainer of the Year,” an honor shared by such exemplary artists as Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow and Johnny Carson.  In 1989 he was honored with a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2003 received his second Grammy nomination for the 2003 album, “Always Hear The Harmony.” 

When not on tour, Engelbert and his beloved wife of 44 years, Patricia, divide their time between their homes in England and California and spending time with their four grown children.  In 2004 his autobiography “Engelbert: What’s In A Name?” made it’s way onto the best-seller lists giving readers an intimate look at not only his career and family, but also the eventful life he has led.

One of the world’s most instantly recognized voices, Englebert Humperdinck is a true icon of entertainment.  Watch as he proves the best is yet to come in Silver Legacy’s Grande Exposition Hall on Saturday, September 18 at 8 p.m.  Tickets are available from $50 with premium seating at $60 and $70.  Reserve your seats online at www.silverlegacy.com or www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-MUST-SEE (687-8733) or 775-325-7401.
