Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the chart-topping vocalist and television personality, will celebrate the season with his 5th annual Christmas tour throughout the month of December.
Landau and his Big Band are returning to the Charleston, West Virginia area on Friday, December 11th to bring the 2015 Home for the Holidays tour to The Culture Center located at 1900 Kanawha Blvd E. at the Capitol Complex in Charleston, WV. Tickets for the show are available online at www.landaumurphyjr.com. Concertgoers can purchase advanced General Admission tickets for $25.00 and advanced Gold Circle tickets for $50.00. For more information about The Culture Center, visit the West Virginia Division of Culture and History online at www.wvculture.org/agency/cultcenter.html. Fans who bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank can attend a special after-show reception with Landau and the band.
This year, Landau fans have an extra reason to celebrate, with the recent release of his first ever performance DVD. “Landau Live In Washington DC at Bethesda Blues and Jazz” features Landau and his incredible big band in top form, performing classics from The Great American Songbook for a packed house in the Nation’s Capital. The DVD is available on tour and online at www.amazon.com and www.landaumurphyjr.com.
Select dates on the “Home For The Holidays” tour will feature Landau’s celebrity friends, including former Temptations lead singer Glenn Leonard, whose classic vocal performance of “Silent Night” with the Tempts is heard on radio stations around the world every Christmas. Also, watch for former Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones and Buddy Rich lead trumpet Greg Wing anchoring Landau’s horn section on select shows.
Speaking of Sinatra, Landau will headline a very special Frank Sinatra 100th Birthday Celebration on Saturday, December 12th at Bethesda Blues and Jazz near Washington DC. Murphy recently co-headlined a special Sinatra family command performance in Hollywood alongside George Benson, Tina Sinatra and others.
Landau has also added a trio of Christmas tour dates in southern West Virginia, where fans at each show who bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank can attend a special after-show reception with Landau and the band. “My home state is hurting now, with the highest unemployment rate in the nation, so we’re hoping to bring a little Christmas cheer and help them forget about their troubles, at least for a little while,” said Murphy who was once himself homeless, living in his car before going on to win NBC’s America’s Got Talent and a one million dollar prize, secure a Columbia Records recording contract, release a No. 1 best selling book and dazzle millions of fans worldwide.
Landau will wrap up his 2015 holiday tour by ringing in the New Year December 29th, 30th and 31st at the Black Bear Casino in Duluth, MN. Tickets for the performances are available to casino VIP’s only, but a limited number of special tickets will be given away to Landau fans via the performer’s Facebook page.
