Donnie and Marie Osmond coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum

Did you have plans with your grandparents on Dec. 6? Break 'em, because Donnie and Marie Osmond are coming to Tampa.

The sparkly clean brother-sister duo will bring their Christmas tour to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Dec. 6, mixing holiday classics with their own hits like A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock 'n' Roll. Tickets start at $46.75 and go on sale Aug. 16.

To many of you, this may sound like the most hellish night of the holiday season. But hey, give the Osmonds a chance. We covered Jimmy Osmond's Holiday Jukebox last year at Busch Gardens, and if Donny and Marie bring even half of his clean-as-a-whistle wholesomeness, you (and your kids and your grandparents) are in for a sugary sweet treat. (In other words, be sure to have a carton of spiked eggnog ready and waiting at the end of the night.) As we roll into fall, it's also worth taking stock of all the holiday pop concerts coming to town so far. A sampling:

Nov. 30: Dave Koz and Friends Christmas, Ruth Eckerd Hall

Dec. 1: Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tampa Bay Times Forum (according to their website)

Dec. 6: Donnie and Marie's Christmas Tour, Tampa Bay Times Forum

Dec. 7: Bowzer's Holiday Rock 'n' Roll Party, Ruth Eckerd Hall

Dec. 15: New York Tenors Christmas, Ruth Eckerd Hall
