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.
