Engelbert Humperdinck, known as the ultra-smooth King of Romance, will be performing at the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at AT&T Performing Arts Center, 4:00 p.m., Sunday, September 8, 2013 as part of “The Greatest Hits & More Tour.”
Humperdinck has entertained global audiences of all ages, including Royalty, Presidents and Heads of State, for more than four decades.
He has released over 80 albums of ballads earning 63 Gold and 24 Platinum statuses, and his career is recognized with four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe for Entertainer of the Year and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Humperdinck’s 1967 signature tune, “Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)” from his debut album, was a number one hit in eleven countries and appeared on the British charts for 56 weeks, preventing the Beatles’ double A-side release, “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever,” from reaching the top position.
