Grammy nominee Tony Orlando is best known for crooning in Las Vegas. He began performing there in the early 1970s and became a top act, headlining the historic Las Vegas Hilton. During his long career, he has headlined at many of the most iconic spots including The Mirage, Caesar’s Palace, and The Desert Inn. The 79-year-old is now traveling around the country for his farewell tour.

Orlando will be performing some of his biggest hits including “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times,” “Candida,” “My Sweet Gypsy Rose,” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You)” in cities such as Atlantic City, Niagra Falls, and of course, Las Vegas. March will mark his final performance at Mohegan Sun’s 10,000-seat arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. His final show will be his 65th appearance at the venue and Tom Cantone, President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan shared his gratitude that Orlando chose the venue for his last show.

He said, “We are honored that after such a historic entertainment and humanitarian career, Tony Orlando has chosen Mohegan Sun to host his final live performance. It’s now time for us to give him a standing ovation for entertaining over 100,000 fans at Mohegan Sun over the years, something that only Billy Joel has done, as he will be forever part of Mohegan’s entertainment family.”
