LAS VEGAS, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Sibling performers Donny and Marie Osmond will keep their Las Vegas act going for two more years, Flamingo Las Vegas announced Monday.

The 90-minute variety show opened Sept. 9 "to a packed house and has since continued the momentum," the resort said in a news release. It was scheduled to run for six months but now will run through October 2010.

"Donny and Marie are true superstars with the most comprehensive show on the Strip, combining rock, country, Broadway, opera, comedy and an element of sexiness," Don Marrandino, president of Flamingo Las Vegas, said in a statement. "Their show has been an amazing success, bringing an invigorated energy to the Flamingo, and we're thrilled to have them with us for two more years."

"Headlining in Las Vegas again after all the years in between is something Marie and I have wanted to do for some time now, and we are delighted to extend our run at the Flamingo just six weeks after opening," added Donny Osmond.

Marie Osmond called Las Vegas her family's home and said she and her brother "have a blast on stage every night."
