The legendary Engelbert Humperdinck is bringing 50 years of hits to New Zealand early next year with his critically-acclaimed ‘The Man I Want To Be’ Tour.
In a career that spans five decades, Humperdinck is renowned for some of the biggest, most popular anthems in music, from ‘Release Me’ and ‘Ten Guitars’ to ‘Last Waltz’ and ‘Quando, Quando, Quando’. He has generated sales in excess of 140 million records, including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum, four Grammy Award nominations, a Golden Globe and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Las Vegas Walk of Fame.
Humperdinck’s ‘The Man I Want To Be Tour’ takes its name from his latest album released last year, which marked his 50th anniversary in the music industry and also served as love letter to his wife Patricia of 53 years who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. The album, which is made up of original tracks and covers of contemporary songs, including Ed Sheeran’s ‘Photograph’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘Just the Way You Are’ has received rave reviews.
“Fifty years after his first hits and closing in on his 82nd birthday, Humperdinck has created a heartfelt album anchored in archetypal orchestrations and honest, unspoiled performances of well-chosen songs”-
