Barry Manilow returns to his hometown New York City with Manilow On Broadway, a limited tour that features popular songs from his massive music collection. Manilow, a singer-songwriter, musician, producer, conductor, and arranger, will perform everything from "I Write the Songs" to "Copacabana (At the Copa)."
At just seven years old, Manilow took accordion lessons and started playing piano. He went on to attend New York College of Music and the Julliard School of Music. A job at CBS led to his position as musical director for a CBS show “Callback” before he moved into advertising jingles and music. In 1970, Frank Sinatra famously praised Manilow saying, "He’s next."
Between 1975 and 1983, Manilow had 25 consecutive Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to writing and performing his own songs, Manilow produced and arranged albums for other artists, including Dionne Warwick and Bette Midler.
Since his 1973 self-titled debut album, he’s released 29 studio albums, four live albums, 15 compilation albums, and 57 singles. He won a 1977 Emmy for Outstanding Special for The Barry Manilow Special; a 1977 Tony Award for his production Barry Manilow on Broadway, and scores of other awards, including several nods for Best Pop/Rock Male Artist from the American Music Awards.
Manilow is arguably best known for his songs "Could It Be Magic," "Mandy" "Can't Smile Without You," and "Copacabana (At the Copa)." Sing along with the legend, performing for only a limited time, when you purchase Manilow On Broadway tickets!
