Barry Manilow Announces ‘One Last Time’ Farewell Tour for 2015
If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing Barry Manilow in concert, next year is going to be your last chance. The “Mandy” singer has just announced what will be his final tour, which he’s calling his “One Last Time” Tour. It’ll start on February 11 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha. After that, Manilow will play a series of shows through the Midwest — including stops in Chicago, Milwaukee and Cleveland — eventually making his to the Northeast, playing Washington DC’s Verizon Center on February 27, followed by shows in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. The 71-year-old will then set jet across the country to play the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ on April 8 and the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas on April 10. From there, it’s a leg through California, a quick stopover in Utah, and onto the Pacific Northwest with shows in Vancouver, Seattle and Portland. He’ll play the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth on June 4, followed by a couple more shows in the South, before returning to the Northeast —playing Philadelphia, Newark and Boston. Manilow’s very last show will by at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on June 17.
First gaining fame as Bette Midler’s pianist, Barry Manilow began releasing solo music in the mid-70s. He’s released numerous hit singles and platinum albums, as well as written copious tunes for musicals, movies, and commercials. In total, it’s estimated that Manilow has sold over 80 million records around the world, which makes him one of the best-selling musicians on the planet.
