WHO IS HE: “The King of Romance,” as Engelbert Humperdinck is often billed as, has been wooing audiences since the 1950s. The smooth balladeer portrayed the image of a mysterious heartthrob and much like his contemporary Tom Jones, had female fans eating out of the palm of his hand. Humperdinck possesses a three-and-a-half octave vocal range and has excellent technique, so it’s not as if he just another pretty face. Over the course of his career Humperdinck has sold more than 150 million albums and has performed for fans all over the world.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Humperdinck has been a fixture on the Las Vegas lounge circuit for decades and practically invented the genre. Fans are sure to hear his classic hits such as “Release Me,” while his devoted female following is likely to be enamored once again by his looks and charm, despite the fact that the sex symbol is now 77 years old. Humperdinck has always worked hard to give his fans the very best live show possible. In a 1992 tour book, Humperdinck was quoted as saying, “I take the job description of entertainer very seriously. I try to bring a sparkle that people don’t expect.”
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $29, $39 and $49, and the show begins 8 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort’s Mark G. Etess Arena.
