Landau Murphy Jr.’s 12th annual “Home for the Holidays” tour coming to Star Theatre Dec. 8

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the 2011 winner of NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent is celebrating his 12th annual “Home for The Holidays” Christmas tour by doing 12 performances in 12 different towns all over West Virginia. He will make a stop at the Star Theatre in Berkeley Springs on Thursday, December 8.

The 2022 Christmas tour will feature Landau crooning his way through an all-new show filled with Christmas classics and fan favorites from the Great American Songbook. And, for the first time ever, Landau’s special guest for the holiday tour will be a non-musical variety act. “The Cline Twins,” the young Canadian brothers from the 2022 America’s Got Talent season, will bring their amazing hockey stick dynamics to dazzle Mountain State audiences.

“Landau’s Home For The Holidays” 2022 tour is presented by West Virginia Adult Education and its “Never Too Late To Graduate” platform. Landau is a proud spokesperson for WVAE and received his high school equivalency diploma in a graduation ceremony earlier this year with other adult learners. WVAE staffers will be on hand at tour stops to assist those interested in earning their diplomas.
