Donny & Marie extend residency at Flamingo Las Vegas
Whether fans grew up in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s or are millennials, Donny & Marie has remained an enduring act throughout the years, whether performing together or in their solo careers. After celebrating their six year anniversary at Flamingo Las Vegas, the brother and sister act signed an extension to entertain at the resort through the end of 2015. Additionally, a new building wrap of Donny & Marie has been installed on the front of the property.
Donny & Marie opened at Flamingo Las Vegas on Sept. 9, 2008 and the response was so overwhelming that their original six-week contract was extended soon after the show opened. In Oct. 2013, Flamingo renamed its showroom the Donny & Marie Showroom.
During the 90-minute show, Donny gets a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and then Marie goes a little bit country. Performances include the hip hop rendition of The Osmond Brother’s classic “Yo-Yo” and hits, including “I’m Leavin’ it (All) Up To You” and their No. 1 “A Beautiful Life,” from their duet album, Donny & Marie.
Donny & Marie perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday in the Donny & Marie Showroom at Flamingo Las Vegas. Tickets are available at the Flamingo Box Office, by phone at 702.733.3333 or by visiting flamingolasvegas.com.
