Donny and Marie Osmond to Possibly Headline the Strip

Donny and Marie OsmondThe lure of having their fans travel to see them rather than the other way around has claimed yet another set of pop culture icons. Siblings Donny and Marie Osmond are reportedly in final negotiations to headline their own show at the Flamingo.

Their show would start in September of this year, and allow them at least twenty weeks of shows a year on a rotating basis with current Flamingo Showroom headliners Toni Braxton and comedian George Wallace. Nathan Burton will continue to use the stage for his early shows.

This is a real coup for the Flamingo, if the deal is signed. Donny and Marie recently sold out a week of shows this summer at the MGM Grand almost as fast as tickets went on sale.

The duo will next be in Las Vegas hosting the upcoming live telecast of the Miss USA 2008 on April 11th at the Planet Hollywood resort-casino. They are also in the midst of celebrating their family’s 50th year in show business.
