Engelbert Humperdinck joined Jackie Brambles on Greatest Hits Radio to talk about his upcoming tour, and why the London Palladium holds a special place in his heart.

The singer joined us from his home in Los Angeles, but he grew up in the UK, and spoke about his first performance at the London Palladium, and why he'll be starting his new tour there.

"I want to tell you, it's the one place that started my life," he explained. "So I owe that place a great deal, and the memories of it were just wonderful, because after my first hit at the London Palladium, that's what gave me the hit actually, that particular show. Because ‘Release Me’ was sitting on the shelf for three months prior to me doing that particular show."

He went on to explain they didn't think it would be a hit, continuing: "Jukebox Jury voted it a mess and god was on my side and I got that show and the very next day its sold 80,000 / 90,000 a day and like that, it kept doing that each day for about six weeks. 

"And it just stayed in the chart, went to Number 1 in the charts and stopped The Beatles from having the 13th Number 1, this unknown person from Leicester, and it was just an amazing time in my life, you know."

He ended: "It was a life-changing appearance."

The singer, who will be embarking on his 'The Last Waltz Farewell Tour' this September, admitted it doesn't mean he is going to retire.

Englebert explained the reason behind its name: "Who knows? I mean, it's the title of one of my songs, you know, one of our BIG songs that went around the world... People do the last tour and it can go on for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years, you know." 

He continued: "I do just keep going and that's the best way to go in fact. I believe in keeping your body healthy and doing the things that you do and that you love to do and that of course for me it's just singing."
