Tony Orlando to Return to Bethlehem in 2015
Press release from Sands Bethlehem Event Center – The Sands Bethlehem Event Center confirmed dates for the recently announced performances of Tony Orlando’s Great American Christmas in 2015.
Tony Orlando told the audience during his 2 pm matinee performance last Saturday that he was coming back to the Christmas City next year and that his dream of making the Christmas City an annual tradition is becoming a reality.
Due to the overwhelming success and rave reviews of those who saw this year’s performances, it was mutually decided last week between venue ownership/management and the Orlando camp, to lock in the performer for a series of dates next year. Four additional performances have been added next year to what is now, humorously, being referred to as Tony’s “12 Shows of Christmas”
The Sands Event Center will partner with Artsquest and other Lehigh Valley organizations to help promote all the city has to offer during the holiday season and to make Bethlehem a travel destination for those outside the area, while reminding Lehigh Valley residents all that is occurring.
One change for next year is that evening performances will be a 6:30 versus a 7:00 PM start and all evening performances will take place outside of the weekend with the exception of one Sunday performance. This change was made to allow families to attend the performances and still have younger children home at an early hour, while leaving weekends open during a busy time of the year.
The show dates are as follows:
Monday November 30 2pm
Tuesday December 1 2pm
Wednesday December 2 2pm
Thursday December 3 2pm & 6:30pm
Sunday December 6 2pm & 6:30pm
Monday December 7 2pm
Tuesday December 8 2pm
Wednesday December 9 2pm
Thursday December 10 2pm & 6:30pm
Tickets are expected to be placed On Sale sometime early next year with price points still to be announced.
