Engelbert Humperdinck
W. Dundee/St. Charles, IL - Sunday, October 20
The Angel on My Shoulder Tour
Lunch at Village Squire, West Dundee – Show at Arcada, St. Charles

In a career spanning almost 50 years, his unique voice has charmed millions of fans around the globe. However, it’s not just the voice, but the man himself, with his endearing sense of humor and self-deprecating jokes. Like all great icons, he is a man of great depth – masculine and loving, shy inside and uninhibited onstage, prepared to play the sex god to the hilt and still, at this stage of his career, managing to get away with it. Engelbert exploded on to the music scene in the sixties with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Engelbert’s music has transcended time and his voice still continues to reach out to people now – serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and to provoke feelings and emotions…ingredients that are no doubt the essence of his long-lasting success.

A three course luncheon will be served at The Village Squire in West Dundee. You may choose your entrée off a special menu on the day of the tour.

Motorcoach departs at Noon and returns at approximately 6:00pm.

MEMBER FEE:  $145
