The celebrations just don’t stop for July 11.
Donny Osmond tweeted on Tuesday that Gov. Gary Herbert appeared live on stage before the recent Donny and Marie show in Utah, honoring the singers with a declaration that July 11 will forever be “Donny and Marie Day.”
“Now that’s a great way to start a tour,” Donny Osmond tweeted.
Herbert replied with a dad joke on Wednesday morning, thanking the Osmond’s for the show.
Herbert’s declaration stated that “the Osmond family are respected and admired Utahns who have often exemplified the cultural values of our state on an international stage.”
Herbert said the Osmonds’ success at the 2002 Olympic ceremonies and their work with the Children’s Miracle Network shows those values in practice.
“No matter where life takes them, they manage to find their way home to Utah, where they will always be welcome and appreciated because we are a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll,” the declaration read.
Donny and Marie will have their second show tonight at the Sandy Amphitheater. Tickets cost between $55 and $95.
Donny and Marie are currently on tour, and will appear in Scottsdale, Arizona, on July 22. They will then travel to New Mexico before hitting up multiple locations on the East Coast.
