Osmond Prepares To Reunite With Family
DONNY OSMOND is preparing to tour with his famous family for the first time in more than a quarter of a century. The Osmond family hit the road later this year (08), and the one-time teen heartthrob will follow it up with a Las Vegas residency with his sister Marie. Speaking on U.S. TV show Good Morning America on Wednesday (27Feb08), Osmond says, "We're touring as a family for the first time in 27 years. I have found footage in my basement that we haven't seen since 1973, so we're going to use that in the tour. We're going to the U.K. All over Asia and then Marie and I are going back to Vegas. "It's the first time Marie and I have done a longterm gig in Vegas in 30 years. The old feeling in Vegas with a new production. We can hardly wait. "The pressure's on, but Marie and I are ready for the challenge." The 50-year-old is also determined to get one over his famous Dancing With the Stars sibling: "There's going to be a competition thing, because Marie was on Dancing With the Stars. But I'm a better dancer than Marie. And I am going to prove it in Vegas." And he hasn't ruled out appearing on the reality show himself: "Everybody asked me that. Maybe next season."
