No matter how many times we look at his name, we’re still tongue-tied on how to say it: “Hey Siri, how do you pronounce Engelbert Humperdinck?” Now say it ten times fast – we know it’s near impossible, we’ve already tried – and alcohol doesn’t help, although it’s a helluva lot more fun.
Vegas is a fast paced city, always on the run, but Humperdinck is ready to slow it down and take us on a stroll. Billed as “The King of Romance,” this hopeless romantic has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and won a Golden Globe for “Entertainer of the Year.” He can sang a three-and-a-half-octave vocal range, that’s three-and-a-half more than us and probably half the planet. In 1990, it was estimated that Humperdinck had earned 58 gold singles and 18 platinum albums, as well as several Grammy Awards.
It’s time to support those shaggy sideburns and flamboyant wardrobe for a two-night concert engagement, that’ll make you fall in love with Engelbert Humperdinck once again.
