Marie Osmond stopped by the Today show on Friday to announce that she and brother Donny are re-teaming for a world-wide tour next year.

The "little bit country" singer also revealed that she and her "little bit rock'n roll" brother, Donny Osmond — whose Emmy-nominated 1970s television show was a world-wide phenomenon — will be heading out on a world tour while their good friend, Olivia Newton-John, takes their place in Las Vegas.

Osmond told Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb that after the success of their show in Las Vegas, they decided to take it on the road while their good friend, Olivia Newton-John, holds down the fort.

"She's going to take half the time," said Osmond, apparently referring to their Vegas show. "We're going on a big world tour."

Osmond said they plan to start off the tour in places like Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

Osmond said it wasn't that far-fetched that they would have fans in other countries.

"Do you know what's crazy about it?" Osmond said. "The Donny and Marie Show was dubbed into 17 languages. It was everywhere and I had no idea. I had no idea because I was a 14-year-old kid."
