On the heels of the Sept. 30 release of his first-ever duets album, “Engelbert Calling,” a 23-track, two-disc masterpiece featuring some of the world’s most recognized names in music, including Elton John, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton-John and more, legendary music artist Engelbert Humperdinck will make his triumphant return to the Park Theatre in Cranston on Sunday, Oct. 12.
Engelbert’s Rhode Island performance is part of an extensive North American tour in support of his highly anticipated new album.
“He is one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with,” Elton John said of his experience collaborating with Humperdinck. “We had a great time singing together and he is so quick, what I call a ‘one-take singer,’ 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever!”
More than 45 years after his massive hit “Release Me” reached #1 on the pop charts and created a worldwide frenzy – spending six full weeks at #1 and an incredible 56 weeks in the Top 50 in a single chart run – Engelbert’s newest album comes as a celebration of his remarkable career, which has spanned nearly five decades. After selling more than 150 million albums across the globe, including 24 certified with platinum status and 63 with gold, Engelbert has solidified his name as an international pop legend, and as one of the world’s most influential artists. For the past two years, he has worked on “Engelbert Calling.”
“Engelbert Calling” has been met with rave reviews since its U.K. debut earlier this year, reaching near the top of the U.K.’s Top 40 Albums Chart. Once available for pre-order in the U.S., “Engelbert Calling” quickly topped the Barnes and Noble Vocal Pop Music Sales Chart and the Adult Contemporary Music Chart.
After the show, the Park will host the After the Lovin’ VIP Lounge, a rare chance for fans to meet Engelbert Humperdinck. During the 30-minute meet and greet, fans will receive an autographed tour laminate, an autographed greatest hits CD, an additional VIP item and more. Call the Park for more information.
Engelbert Humperdinck will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12. Tickets are $55, $65 and $75 and are available through the Park’s Box Office at 467-7275 or online at www.ParkTheatreRI.com. The Park Theatre is located at 848 Park Ave. in Cranston. Free parking is available for all shows.
