    Default Donny and Marie Osmond sign for new show on Vegas strip

    LAS VEGAS (AP) Donny and Marie Osmond will perform in a variety show at the Flamingo Las Vegas hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip beginning in September.

    The brother-sister duo, who starred in the "Donny & Marie" variety show in 1976, will play Tuesday-Saturday shows for 26 weeks spread over eight months at the Flamingo Showroom, a hotel official said Friday.

    The 90-minute show, beginning Sept. 9, will be presented by Danny Gans and Chip Lightman of GansLight Entertainment. It is being billed as a greatest-hits multimedia spectacle on a custom stage with multiple video screens and a cast of dancers.

    "My version of a variety show has been what Vegas has known thus far," said Gans, an impressionist and comedian who has long played in Las Vegas. "What we have now is a true variety show which conveys the real essence of America and the country's love of homegrown talent."

    Tickets, which are priced at $85, $99 and $115, go on sale Monday.

    In the 1970s, Donny and Marie's musical family, The Osmonds, shared the marquee at the old International hotel with Elvis Presley. The International is now the Las Vegas Hilton.

    "Donny and Marie are timeless entertainers and cultural icons," said Don Marrandino, president of Flamingo Las Vegas. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

    The Flamingo Showroom has been dark most of this month after Toni Braxton was hospitalized April 7 with chest pain.

    Braxton's Las Vegas act, "Toni Braxton: Revealed," is in a two-year run that ends in August at the Flamingo. Braxton is due to resume her show May 6 after canceling several shows and taking a previously scheduled two-week break.

    Default Viva Las Vegas - last stop on the celebrity train to nowhere

    So those wholesome Mormons are going to Sin City, just like Elvis! It's where show business careers go to die (then to be embalmed, encased in glass, and put on display as spectacle).

    I still have a soft spot for Marie - she has a vulnerability that just calls out to me.

    I thought they were finished when their chat show got cancelled.

    This is one show I will be passing on.
