The man receives a lot of hype from a lot of different sources, and for those who haven't heard him live, it may seem confusing. However, once you sit through one performance of his, you'll be a Barry Manilow fan for life. He has a distinct sound that's soft yet never quiet, slow yet never boring, and familiar but never cliche. Having sold over 70 million records worldwide, it's not surprising he sells out shows in a matter of hours, with the number of fans he has worldwide; it's surprising they don't sell out faster.
Barry has won a stack of Emmys and a special Tony award. In addition he's accomplished one of the most incredible feats in music history by having five of his albums on the best-selling charts at once, which was only achieved by one other person, the world renowned Frank Sinatra. Both Barry and Frank have some things in common, including their incredible voices that have drawn fans from hundreds of miles in each direction of their live shows to see them perform.
Many people never got a chance to see Frank Sinatra, and it would be a shame to repeat history with Barry Manilow, so get your tickets now!
