Most of us know Tony Orlando’s “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree,” a song that became an anthem for retiring soldiers and was a number one hit for an entire year. When he returns to The Lyric Theatre, he brings with him an impressive number of hits, from “Candida,” the song that thrust him into the spotlight, to “Knock Three Times,” the top song of 1971, selling more than six million copies. He remains a popular headliner in Las Vegas, Reno and Atlantic City. A well-known record producer and savvy businessman, he was the lead singer for Tony Orlando and Dawn. Their variety show was the first multi-ethnic variety show on television.
After the group disbanded, Orlando continued as a solo act and has been a regular in Las Vegas and Branson, Missouri. He has headlined around the world and entertained five U.S presidents. He has won three American Music Awards and two People’s Choice Awards as Best Male Entertainer. He also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For his Lyric show, Tony Orlando will perform his greatest hits and talk about a career spanning decades and with no end in sight.
