For the past 11 years, Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond were known for blowing their fans away with their incredible performances at their iconic Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo Hotel & Resort. Sadly, the legendary brother-sister duo closed that chapter of their lives as they performed their final show on Saturday, November 16.
Following the end of their era, Donny, 61, took to Instagram to gush over the life-altering experience. “After 11 years and 1,730 shows, we just concluded the final performance of our #DonnyandMarie Las Vegas residency,” the proud performer wrote. “I owe the biggest thank you of all to my dear sister who worked so hard, side-by-side with me all of these years.”
The brother-sister duo’s final show comes eight months after they announced they were officially ending their decade-long residency. The Masked Singer star and the “Paper Roses” songstress shared the heartbreaking news during an appearance on Good Morning America.
“It’s been rumored that we’re bringing ‘Donny and Marie’ to an end here in Las Vegas,” he said to host Paula Faris at the time. “We’re here to say it’s official.” The “Morning Side of the Mountain” singers explained although they are looking forward to doing their own projects, the decision to end their residency was “very, very hard.”
Following their big announcement, Donny and Marie opened up to Closer Weekly about what the end of the residency means. “Who knows — maybe sometime in the future we’ll get together again to sing ‘A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘n’ Roll,” the “I’lll Make a Man Out of You” crooner exclusively told Closer, noting that nothing will ever come between him and his sister. “There’s a bond here that will never be broken.”
Marie echoed a similar sentiment while explaining she’s excited to have some time off with her family and husband Steve Craig. “I have beautiful children and grandchildren,” the brunette beauty gushed. “And I am so excited to be with my husband because he is the love of my life.”
Donny even insisted this definitely won’t be the last time you see the beloved sibling pair. “There are so many exciting things in the pipeline right now,” he shared with Closer, perhaps referring to the upcoming completion of his 62nd studio album that he’s been teasing for months. Marie also became the newest cohost of CBS daytime show The Talk this past May.
Even though Donny and Marie each have “projects we want to do individually,” he told Closer in March, the handsome hunk couldn’t help but feel grateful for his stage partner sister. “It’s a strange feeling knowing that the end is on the horizon,” Donny wrote on social media after they shared the news of their residency.
“Last night after the show, I couldn’t help but think about all that I’m going to miss once it’s over,” he gushed. “I’m going to miss performing on stage with my extremely talented sister every night. She’s the best partner in crime a guy could ask for.” Aww!
