Barry Manilow announces he’ll hit the road ONE LAST TIME!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA (November 19, 2014) – Barry Manilow announced today that he is going to “hit the road” and perform concerts across North America ONE LAST TIME! The music legend will play The Arena at Gwinnett Center on June 4 with the ONE LAST TIME! Tour!
With his band of 13 musicians and singers, Manilow said, “We’re having a great time putting the show together. We hope to take everyone on an emotional roller coaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”
After performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011, Manilow has limited his concert appearances. The ONE LAST TIME! Tour is a major undertaking and as Manilow said, “is my way of thanking everyone for their years of support…one last time!”
The GRAMMY®, TONY®, and EMMY® Award-winning musician’s career skyrocketed to superstardom when his mega hit song, “Mandy,” topped the charts in 1975. In the spirit of that special year, tickets will be priced to tie into that year and will start at $19.75. According to concert promoter AEG Live, Manilow insisted that the average ticket price remain low and that a greater range of ticket prices be available.
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, November 19 at 12pm noon (local) in most markets.
General information about the ONE LAST TIME! Tour is available at www.manilow.com.
Exclusive VIP Packages will be available. In addition to great seats, VIP packages include limited edition memorabilia, VIP parking, and much more!
Manilow released his latest album, MY DREAM DUETS, on October 27. The album debuted at #4 and is Manilow’s 15th Top 10 album. Modern technology has given Manilow the opportunity to record his “dream” duets with his own musical heroes on his latest album. From cherished idols like Judy Garland and Louis Armstrong to contemporary icons like Whitney Houston and John Denver, they have all joined Barry in his “virtual recording studio.” MY DREAM DUETS is in stores now.
