Daily Herald Spends a Day with Engelbert Humperdinck
Ron Onesti, owner of the Arcadia Theatre, recently shared a detailed account of his day spent with Engelbert Humperdinck with Daily Herald.
Engelbert Humperdinck’s tour stopped at the Arcadia Theatre in St. Charles, Illinois. Ron Onesti happens to not only be the owner of the Arcadia Theatre, but he is also a huge fan of Engelbert Humperdinck. Engelbert Humperdinck’s stop in St. Charles also happened to be on Engelbert’s birthday.
Onesti enjoyed Engelbert’s concert, raving how varied and entertaining the show was:
His show was a combination all-hits concert and career retrospective, including rare video footage of he and Dean Martin doing medleys, a duet with Elton John’s voice piped in, a country number with him in a cowboy hat and a couple of choreographed routines with his backup vocalists. He even shared some funny stories of Martin referring to him as “Engledinck Bumpalump!” And his voice? Powerful as ever, with an incredible range. What a night!
