Fans of the 70s sibling teen sensations Donny and Marie Osmond have been missing the singing duo, but, Donny hinted on a recent trip to Las Vegas Nevada with his wife of 42 years, it may not be for long.

On October 17, 2020, Donny gave his fans a glimpse into his life when he shared a post on Instagram from Las Vegas, where he was spending a weekend with Debbie.

MEMORIES FROM THE FLAMINGO

Donny shared a snap in which he is standing in front of the famous Flamingo Hotel on the Strip, in which he once performed with Marie. The singer looked fit and dapper for his 62 years and was sporting a face mask.

In his captioned he alluded to the "good old days," which truth be told, weren't that long ago. The Osmond siblings ended an extremely successful 11-year residency at the Flamingo in October 2019.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

For 11 years and 1,730, the Osmonds added their special magic to the Las Vegas nights. All that is missing now, is the giant outdoor emblazoned with Donny and Marie's faces on the hotel's facade.

Donny had, with characteristic humor, been updating fans on the slow fading of the billboard over the last year, and shared a snap of his vanishing face. He wrote:

“The ghost of Donny still remains!”

The 11-year-old stint at the Flamingo started with what was supposed to be a six-week contract, but the brother and sister duo were such a hit with Las Vegas audiences that they ended up extending their stay for over a decade.

Bringing the long-running show to an end was a difficult decision for the Osmonds, and Donny does not rule out the possibility of a return to Vegas with his kid sister by his side.

The duo's last show in Las Vegas in November 2019 was particularly emotional, with the siblings breaking into tears on stage as they bid farewell to Sin City. They opened by singing their signature tune, and closed it with a moving rendition of "May Tomorrow Be A Perfect Day."

The brother and sister, the youngest of the musical Osmond family, teamed up for a TV show in 1976, "The Donny and Marie Show," which made them international stars and proved to be the foundation for their extremely successful solo careers.

But for fans, their best moments will always be together, lighting up the stage with their dazzling smiles and their very different but complementary styles. And just maybe, the Osmonds may be back in Vegas one of these days.
