Osmonds Add Extra Dates To Las Vegas Residency
Grieving mother MARIE OSMOND has extended her Las Vegas residency with brother DONNY after the death of her son forced the pair to scrap a string of shows.
Osmond is in mourning for her 18-year-old adopted son Michael Blosil, who was found dead outside his Los Angeles apartment block last week (26Feb10). He is believed to have leaped from the building after a battle with depression.
The singer called off a series of her Donny & Marie in Las Vegas dates to spend time with her family after the tragedy, but announced she will step back on stage the day after her son's funeral in Utah on Monday (08Mar10).
The sibling duo has added an extra five shows to their run for fans who had tickets for the six scrapped concerts.
The residency was originally slated to end on 1 April (10) but will now include an added stint between 13-17 April (10).
An autopsy on Blosil's body was completed on Monday (01Mar10) but the cause of death has been deferred pending toxicology reports.
