Engelbert Humperdinck returns to the Chevalier Theatre in Medford Oct. 3

September 23, 2021

LuAnn M. Thibodeau WickedLocal.com Sept. 23, 2021

"Tell everyone in town that Engelbert is back."

Those song lyrics say it all — Engelbert Humperdinck returns to The Chevalier Theatre on Oct. 3 for his only performance in Massachusetts on this East Coast tour.

So what has he been up to since the pandemic halted live concerts in March of 2020? Well, never having been one to rest on his laurels and prior success, Engelbert, at the young age of 85, is as popular as ever, with fans of all ages.

Through innovative ways, such as his weekly Tuesday Museday and Flashback Friday episodes that he shares on YouTube as well as his social media pages, and his website that keeps fans informed of news and tour information while also providing multimedia files of concerts and a discography section of his music through the years, he keeps in touch with fans around the world.

Engelbert also had a live online YouTube concert in the summer of 2020, as well as his first ever Christmas concert last December-broadcast online from his beautiful home in California, after which fans had the opportunity for live one on one video chats with him. He also is on Cameo.com, a site from which fans have a way to receive a personalized video from him.

And on Monday, Sept. 13, he was live on YouTube, updating fans about his tour schedule, announcing the 2nd annual Christmas special which will be happening this December, and also receiving an award from YouTube for reaching 100,000 subscribers. In addition, the song that he recorded with Janet Devlin (a young singer/songwriter from Ireland)during the pandemic(he was in California and she was in Ireland when they recorded it) — “Can’t Help Falling In Love “ — has been viewed over 2 million times!

The Legend, The King of Romance, will perform two shows before he returns to The Chevalier Theatre, then four more East Coast stops before he heads back to California for a show there.

After that, he jets off to perform several concerts in the United Kingdom in late October and November, and then back to California, performing in early December. How does he do it? Well, he follows the advice of one of his song titles — "Don't Let The Old Man In"... and he certainly doesn't.

His show at The Chevalier Theatre in May of 2019 was “Totally Amazing”(another of his song titles), and the Oct. 3 show promises to be that and more, as Engelbert plans to include a song that he wrote for his wife many years ago — "Everywhere I Go" — which will undoubtedly be tough for him, as Patricia, his wife of over 50 years, passed away in February of this year, from COVID.

It definitely is a show not to be missed.

The way it used to be: 49 archive pictures of legendary crooner Engelbert Humperdinck

September 23, 2021

 

Here are 49 amazing archive pictures of Arnold George Dorsey, the Leicester legend better kbnown as Engelbert Humperdinck.

Engelbert was born in Madras as one of ten siblings, and moved to Leicester at the age of 10 with parents Mervyn and Olive. He took up playing the saxophone and worked in clubs in the early 1950s before taking up singing in his late teens where his impression of Jerry Lewis led friends to call him Gerry Dorsey.

He would go on to use this as his stage name for almost a decade.

After being conscripted to the army he signed a deal with Decca records in 1958 with his first single I'll Never Fall in Love Again.

His big break came in 1965 when he teamed up with music manager Gordon Mills who also looked after Tom Jones. It was him that suggested the name change to Engelbert Humperdinck - borrowed from a 19th century German composer.

Things started to move on a pace and by 1967 he was keeping the Beatles off the top chart position with his version of Release Me that stayed in the Top 50 for 56 weeks, selling 85,000 copies a day at its height.

This set of pictures charts some of those early days events of Leicester's much loved son.

Engelbert Humperdinck will return to Leicester as part of his 2021 UK tour

He was determined to return to the UK after his worldwide tour was cancelled last year due to Covid-19

By Asha Patel Leicester Mercury

 

Leicester's Engelbert Humperdinck is returning to his hometown for a one-night-only performance this year.

The singer, now aged 85 is set to perform at De Montfort Hall in November this year as part of his 2021 Autumn tour. 

Following the cancellation of his 2020 worldwide tour due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Engelbert was determined to return to the UK as soon as possible and extend his tour dates. 

With a career spanning over 50 years, the singer has sold more than 140 million records worldwide and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Las Vegas Walk of Fame, and, of course, the Leicester Walk of Fame.

Engelbert also received a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) award for his services to music earlier this year. 

He came on to the music scene with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Widely regarded as a heartthrob, he was catapulted almost instantly to world icon.

His first single in the charts was “Release Me,” which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts and was a number one hit in 11 countries.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Engelbert released his new EP 'Sentiments' in November 2020, prior to which he hosted his first-ever live-streamed concert on YouTube.

As well as his voice, the singer's personality has won him a loyal fanbase over the years with whom he has stayed connected through his YouTube vlog series and social media.

Engelbert will join his UK for his UK tour this November, performing at Leicester's De Montfort Hall on November 20.

This the full list of tour dates for 2021:

July 13, 2021

By Nigel Barlow - July 13, 2021 About Manchester

In a career spanning over 50 years, Engelbert has generated sales in excess of 140 million records, including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum, four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe, and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Las Vegas Walk of Fame, and Leicester Walk of Fame.

 

He has performed for the Queen four times, several presidents and many heads of state. He has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock, and even gospel. His unique voice has charmed millions of fans around the globe.

However, it’s not just the voice, but the man himself. He is well known for his endearing sense of humour and self-deprecating jokes. Engelbert has managed to strike a new chord with a younger generation, appearing on MTV several times.

Engelbert exploded on to the music scene with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Widely regarded as a heartthrob, he was catapulted almost instantly to world icon. He became great friends with Elvis and the two legends often performed each other’s songs. His first single in the charts was “Release Me,” which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was No. 1 in 11 countries. The following decades saw Engelbert constantly touring the world to sell-out crowds. He takes great pleasure in every moment on stage.

Engelbert’s music has transcended time and his voice continues to reach out to people now – serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and to provoke feelings and emotions…ingredients that are no doubt the essence of his long-lasting success.

Engelbert was just awarded the Honour of Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) by Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021.

Following his sell out show destined for 2020 at The London Palladium being rescheduled to 25th April 2022, Engelbert was determined to return to the UK as soon as he could and extend his tour dates, for his fans across the UK to enjoy.

Engelbert’s newest album Sentiments – a collection of new recordings including covers of songs by Elton John, Elvis Presley and Charlie Chaplin – was released in November 2020.
