Donny and Marie Osmond will be starring in a new Las Vegas revue show later this year, organisers have confirmed.

The 90-minute show at the Flamingo Hotel is being billed as a greatest-hits multi-media spectacle.

"Donny and Marie are timeless entertainers and cultural icons," said Don Marrandino, Flamingo president.

The brother and sister act, who hosted their own popular TV programme in the 1970s, are due to start performing together again in September.

The shows are being produced by Danny Gans and Chip Lightman of GansLight Entertainment.

"What we have now is a true variety show which conveys the real essence of America and the country's love of home-grown talent, " said Mr Gans.

The pair will perform from Tuesday through to Saturday for 26 weeks spread out over eight months.

The Osmonds - made up of five brothers with Donny as lead singer - were one of the biggest pop acts of the 1970s.

From 1976 to 1979, Donny and sister Marie Osmond branched out to host the TV programme the Donny and Marie show, which their older brothers helped produce.

The pair also hosted a talk show in the US with the same title from 1998 to 2000.
