News @ Noon: Marie Osmond Talks About Her Christmas Show At Target Center [AUDIO]
MINNEAPOLIS - The legendary Marie Osmond, and her brother Donny, are bringing their Christmas show to Target Center later this month. The Donny & Marie Christmas Tour will stop in Minneapolis on Saturday, December 21st.
Marie was on WJON today (Monday), during the News @ Noon Show, to talk about the show. She says it's the 4th year of doing the holiday show. They have 15 stops this year, which runs for about three weeks.
Donny and Marie have been working together for six years now in Las Vegas, after not performing together for about 28 years. Marie says the holiday show is a little bit of the Vegas show, and a little bit of Christmas. They will sing some of their classics like: "Paper Roses" and "Puppy Love", along with a bunch of Christmas songs.
It's a major production with six semis and four buses. Marie says this might be the last time they take a show like this on the road, because it is such a major undertaking.

She says the secret to longevity in show business is incredibly loyal fans, and a willingness to work hard.
