Barry Manilow Tickets
Barry Manilow is an American singer and songwriter best known for his recordings "I Write the Songs", "Mandy" and "Copacabana". His career achievements include selling more than 75 million records worldwide. In 1978, five of his albums were on the best-selling charts simultaneously, a feat equaled only by Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis. He has achieved a string of Billboard hit singles and multi-platinum albums that have resulted with him being named Radio & Records number one Adult Contemporary artist and winning the American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist for three consecutive years.
Several well-known entertainers have given Manilow their stamp of approval. In 1988, Bob Dylan stopped Manilow at a party, hugged him and said; don?t stop what you're doing, man. We're all inspired by you.
Manilow enrolled himself at the New York College of Music and Juilliard, while working in the mailroom at CBS to pay his expenses. While at CBS in 1964, 21-year-old Manilow met Bro Herrod, a director, who asked him to arrange some public domain songs for a musical adaptation of the melodrama, The Drunkard. Instead, he wrote an entire original score. The musical became a success and ran Off-Broadway for eight years in New York.
His association with Bette Midler began at the Continental Baths in New York City accompanying her and other artists from 1970 to 1971. She also chose him to assist in the production of her first two albums The Divine Miss M (1972) and Bette Midler (1973). Later, when Manilow had an album of his own released, she allowed him to sing three songs during her intermissions. Altogether, Manilow worked with Midler for four years, from 1971 to 1975.
The 1980s gave Manilow the Adult Contemporary chart-topping hit songs The Old Songs, Somewhere down the Road and Read 'Em And Weep. Manilow continued having high radio airplay throughout the decade.
Also in 1980, a concert from Manilow's sold-out shows at the Wembley Arena was broadcast while he was on his World Tour. Manilow released the self-titled Barry (1980) which was his first album to not reach the top ten in the United States. The album contained I Made It through the Rain and Bermuda Triangle. We Still Have Time was featured in the 1980 drama Tribute.
1990s: Under Cover:
In the 1990s, Manilow's album career changed significantly. His recordings switched from him being primarily a singer-songwriter to him being a cover artist. A trend that started with the 1989 release Barry Manilow continued with his 1990 Christmas LP Because It's Christmas.
In the beginning of the new century Manilow had two specials, Manilow Country and Manilow Live, taped over two consecutive days at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville, Tennessee. On April 11, 2000, The Nashville Network (TNN) aired the two-hour Manilow Country. The special was TNN's first high definition broadcast and became one of TNN's highest rated concert specials.
In March 2006, PBS aired Barry Manilow: Music and Passion, a Hilton concert taped exclusively for the network's fundraising drive. Manilow was nominated for two Emmys, winning for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program.
In January 2007, Manilow returned to his hometown of New York City for three shows at Madison Square Garden. One highlight was the showing onscreen of Manilow performing in one of his first television appearances while the "live" Manilow played along onstage. In July 2007, it was revealed that Manilow will release a CD spotlighting the decade he became a super-star: the 1970's. The Greatest Songs of the Seventies is set to be released September 18, 2007.
