STAMFORD, CT - Legendary artist Engelbert Humperdinck will take the Palace Theatre stage in Stamford, CT on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Humperdinck has been a legend in the international music industry for the last forty plus years, with more than 150 million records sold. Tickets, priced at $45, $65, $85, go on sale Friday, February 21 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) online at www.SCAlive.org and by calling 203-325-4466
Humperdinck's remarkable voice and extraordinary talent has endeared him to millions of fans around the globe with such hit songs as “(Please) Release Me,” “After The Lovin,” “Spanish Eyes,” “The Last Waltz,” “Am I That Easy To Forget,” “There Goes My Everything,” “Les Bicyclettes de Belsize,” “Winter World Of Love,” “This Moment In Time,” “Cant Take My Eyes Off You” and the unforgettable “Quando, Quando, Quando.”
Humperdinck recently welcomed a packed house at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday evening with amusing stories, tributes to some of the musical legends he’s worked with throughout his career – including Pat Boone and Gene Simmons, who were both in attendance – creative covers of timeless classics, and of course, a line-up of fan favorites.
With four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe for “Entertainer of the Year” (1988), 63 gold and 24 platinum records and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Humperdinck might rest easy on his laurels. Hardly. In the past few years, he has joined an elite group of musical artists, such as Tony Bennett and Burt Bacharach, who have crossed over successfully to strike a new chord with a younger generation in addition to their core audiences. The Humper has appeared on several MTV programs, including two appearances on “MTV Beach House,” “Chilling with the Weaze” and “Oddville.”
Romance serves as the core of Humperdinck's music and lasting success. He knows how to pick songs with eternal themes of love and longing, and lovers always want to hear them sung.
Engelbert will release his first-ever duets album “Engelbert Calling,” on March 17. The album is being produced in London and Los Angeles by Grammy-award winning producer Martin Terefe (Train, Jason Mraz, James Morrison) and features a who’s who of the music world, including Sir Elton John, Willie Nelson, Smokey Robinson, Shelby Lynne, Charles Aznavour, Neil Sedaka, Dionne Warwick, Kenny Rogers, Lulu, Beverly Knight and Gene Simmons, among others.
