The Press Release:
Barry Manilow returns this summer to Broadway for an exclusive limited engagement at the Nederlander’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group), are pleased to announce that Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award winning singer-songwriter, arranger, producer and musician BARRY MANILOW will take the stage on July 26 through August 17 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street).

Manilow promises an evening of nonstop Top 40 Hits and surprises from his extensive catalog of music ranging from pop, to Broadway, Jazz, and adult contemporary.

Barry Manilow has a long history on Broadway. He received a Special Tony Award for his first appearance in 1977. In 1989 he sold out an 8-week run at the Gershwin Theater and in 2013 sold out an 8-week run at the St. James Theatre – all to rave reviews. Manilow is credited with setting the precedent for contemporary music artists to appear on Broadway.

“I am thrilled to be returning to my hometown of New York City and performing once again on Broadway,” said Manilow. “It holds a very special place in my heart.”

Manilow just celebrated his 500th show at the International Theater at the Westgate in Las Vegas, where he has been in residency since 2018. This September he will be headlining BBC’s The Proms in the Park in London. Considered to be one of the most significant musical events in British culture, Manilow will be performing before an estimated audience of 40,000. Manilow first headlined The Proms in 2009 and this will be the first time ever that a headliner has returned.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Growing up listening to music in the 1970’s I can admit to hearing a ton of Manilow’s hits on the radio stations of the day and there were so many good songs. The musician is a genius level songwriter so what’s not to love. Of course I lean towards the heavier side of the fence these days but if I can find myself in one of the Broadway residency shows then I will gladly do it. These legendary artists are only going to be touring for so long as they get older and this is the kind of show that I wished my parents still lived in NYC to try to see with them. What do you readers think about this residency? Will you be trying to catch a show or two? Chime in down below in the comments section and pay mind to our Events Calendar since I will be listing all of the residency dates there for good measure.
