Engelbert Humperdinck will bring his 50th Anniversary Tour to The Orleans Showroom on Sept. 23-24.

In the mid-1960s, Humperdinck found early success in Europe with the hit single “Release Me,” which spent 56 weeks in the “Top 50” of the U.K. charts, and reached “No. 1” in 11 countries. Humperdinck followed-up the hit single with the ballads “There Goes My Everything” and “The Last Waltz.” In 1969, his self-titled album peaked at “No. 5” on both the U.S. and U.K. charts.

As the years went on, Humperdinck became a household name thanks to appearances on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” and popular television shows, including “The Love Boat,” “Hotel” and “Fantasy Island.”

Throughout his career, Humperdinck has recorded 64 Gold albums, 35 Platinum albums and has been nominated for four Grammy Awards. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets start at $59.95 plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000; online at www.orleanscasino.com; or in-person at gift shops inside The Orleans, Suncoast, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town.
