Hardly a day goes by that we don’t hear from a promoter announcing his brand-spanking new Manilow date. Yes, the man who practically owned the 1970s when it came to majestically produced ballads is building quite an impressive routing in 2012.
For example, Manilow is slotted for three nights at the Windy City’s Chicago Theatre Feb. 2-4. He also has a four-night run at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall Feb. 10-12 & 14.
But not all Manilow dates are multi-nighters in some of the nation’s largest cities. Much to his fans’ delight, he’s booking plenty of one-night stands across the country, including Omaha, Neb., at the CenturyLink Center Feb. 29; Moline, Ill, at the i wireless Center March 8; Detroit’s Fox Theatre March 9; Saint Paul, Minn., at Xcel Energy Center April 13; Grand Rapids, Mich., at the Van Andel Arena April 26 and Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Theatre April 28.
Other towns hosting the purveyor of such monster hits as “I Write The Songs,” “Mandy” and “Could It Be Magic” include Huntington, W.Va. (April 19); Highland Heights, Ky. (April 20); and Green Bay, Wis. (April 27).
Manilow is also headed to the U.K. in May, playing shows in London (May 15), Birmingham (May 17), Manchester (May 19) and Glasgow (May 21) as well as in Dublin, Ireland, (May 23).
Many shows are already on sale. A fan club presale for Milwaukee begins Feb. 1, for Saint Paul Feb. 2. Highland Height goes on sale Feb. 3. Visit Manilow.com for more information.
