A familiar voice from the ‘70s will take the stage at Wildhorse Resort & Casino.
Tony Orlando’s 1973 hit, “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree,” became his theme song. The familiar anthem of hope, homecoming, reunion and renewal was the No. 1 Billboard song of the year. Other top hits by Orlando include “Knock Three Times,” “Candida,” “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You)” and “My Sweet Gypsy Rose.”
Orlando will perform live in concert Saturday, April 20 at 8 p.m. in the Rivers Event Center, located off Interstate 84, Exit 216, Mission. A no-host bar will be available.
The “Tony Orlando and Dawn” TV variety show ran from 1973-77 on CBS. It catapulted the duo from popular recording artists into major stars. They rank among the Top 100 Billboard Magazine artists of all-time.
Orlando is the recipient of three American Music Awards and two People’s Choice Awards for best male entertainer. In addition, he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his achievements in the entertainment industry.
