TONY ORLANDO & DAWN: A CHRISTMAS REUNION IS COMING TO FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO IN DECEMBER
INDIO, CA – Tony Orlando is one of America’s most enduring and iconic stars and 2018 finds him reuniting with his legendary group Dawn (Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson) to bring their exhilarating energy, warmth and humor to America through a tour of live Christmas shows across the nation. The “Tony Orlando & Dawn: A Christmas Reunion” tour will crisscross the United States and is scheduled to make a stop at The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, December 1, 2018.
Grammy Nominee Tony Orlando has sold millions of records and has had five number one hits: “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times,” “Candida,” “My Sweet Gypsy Rose” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You).” “Tie A Yellow Ribbon” was the number one Billboard Song of 1973 and became Orlando’s theme song, growing into an American anthem of hope and homecoming, reunion and renewal. He has 2 Platinum albums, 3 Gold albums and 15 Top 40 Hits and Tony Orlando and Dawn rank among the Top 100 Billboard Magazine artists of all-time.
The enormously popular Tony Orlando and Dawn television variety show ran for four seasons (from 1973 to 1977) on CBS. The show catapulted Tony Orlando and Dawn from popular recording artists into major stars and few know that Tony Orlando and Dawn was the first multi-racial singing group to star in a network television series.
Tony is still considered one of the most popular live concert artists working today. He has headlined around the world and has entertained for five US Presidents. A 2016 review says it best; “The truth is: Tony Orlando is more than a singer. He has the ability to reach an audience, touch us inside, and connect with us on a higher level with his voice, style, and values.”
Tony is a recipient of three American Music Awards and two People’s Choice Awards for best male entertainer. For outstanding achievements to the entertainment industry Tony was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of
Fame. He’s now staging one of the most festive holiday shows ever to tour America, and he’s looking forward to bringing “Tony Orlando & Dawn: A Christmas Reunion” to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
