Merrill has sung the lead on 27 gold records and produced and written music and lyrics for five number one hit records.

During the late 1970s, Merrill shifted to focusing on country music as he grew out his beard.

He has since gone on to work with the production for the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan and George Bush.

The Osmond brothers have together produced a combined 47 platinum and gold records.

Now celebrating his 55th year in showbusiness, the star is releasing his new album A Tribute to Classic Rock, will be making a pit stop at the Holmfirth venue as part of a world tour.

The Osmonds enjoyed a career that took them from singing barbershop music as children to achieving success as teen-music idols, from producing a hit television show to continued success as solo and group performers.

The brothers are devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The group began as a barbershop quartet consisting of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay, and were later joined by younger sibling Donny. Another brother, Jimmy, also sang with the band and as a solo artist, as did their sister Marie.
