A Re-creation of the 1976 UK Tour
Starring Sally Olson & Ned Mills
Direct from Las Vegas, Carpenters Legacy: A Re-creation of the 1976 UK Tour is the definitive show celebrating the music and legacy of the famed brother-sister duo. Starring Sally Olson as Karen Carpenter and Ned Mills as Richard Carpenter, the show is a re-creation of the Carpenters’ 1976 live performances, featuring hits including “We’ve Only Just Begun”, “Yesterday Once More”, “Superstar”, Karen’s drum solo, Richard's classical piano feature, a Spike Jones parody of "Close To You", comedy antics and much more.
Carpenters Legacy maintains a Las Vegas residency at The Modern Showroom at Alexis Park Resort. Carpenters Legacy was voted "Best Impersonator” for both the 2022 (Silver Winner) and 2021 (Bronze WInner) Best of Las Vegas awards, nominated in five entertainment categories – “Best Tribute Show”, "Best Impersonator", "Best New Act/Show", "Best Resident Performer/Headliner", and "Best Production Show."
Olson is the first-ever and only Karen Carpenter tribute artist to perform with the world-renowned Las Vegas based review Legends In Concert. Carpenters Legacy features a powerful live performance, historical commentary, lovely arrangements and video, taking audiences on an incredible journey down memory lane into the world of the Carpenters – the world’s ONLY authentic Carpenters tribute in sight and sound.
