TWO CONCERTS in HOLLAND, DECEMBER 10 & 11, 2005

Looks like I’ll be spending the second week of December in Holland where I’ll be appearing Saturday night the 10th and Sunday afternoon the 11th In Concert. The venue will be De Jaabeurs in the city of Utrecht.

The shows will be taped for Dutch Television and will go out at Christmas as a TV Special. There will be two other artists on the bill, The New London Chorale featuring Tom Parker and The 12 Irish Tenors.

This will be my first appearance in The Netherlands in several decades and I’m looking forward to seeing all of my Dutch friends and those of you around the world that might want to make plans to attend my only European concerts of 2005. If you have never visited this glorious country here’s an excuse and those of you who have been there need no reason other than the pure pleasure of the people and places of Holland to plan another trip.

One thing for sure, with this cast all on the same stage this show will definitely be an early sellout. You better order your tickets now. After Rod’s performance of “September Song” & "Look for the Silver Lining” in past shows it ought to be a once in a lifetime experience to hear him perform a major standard by Jerry Herman, the great composer of “Hello Dolly, “Mack & Mable” & “Mame".
