An Evening of Music and Passion

I loved every moment of the concert. Being the first time seeing and hearing Barry live was a dream come true. To see and hear Barry sing great songs with his great voice and great personality Live has been a dream of mine and the show was on my birthday. Best birthday I have ever had! I was so excited when he came on stage I felt like I could fly. My seat was second row center so I could see those gorgeous blue eyes; his voice was as clear as a bell. The songs, costumes, musicians and back-up singers were all magnificent. How can one pick the most favorite song? Every one! I do remember tears running down my cheeks during the finale song, "Forever and a Day," because I didn't want Barry to leave the stage. I just wanted to shake hands with him and tell him how I love him, his voice, and his music - and I thought I would never see him live again. I have been fortunate to have seen him 3 times since, in Vegas and one was a Platinum! Dreams really do come true! Love you, Barry! - Carolyn Grimm (Onalaska, WI) (3/15/2008, 10/20/2009)

My mom and I bought tickets for my dad and husband to see Barry in Minnesota. It was winter... we were walking across the street and I remember turning around and telling my parents to be careful as it was icy. Needless to say, within 2-3 seconds my mom fell. She was a real trooper and didn't want to complain but just for a "fleeting" moment I thought she could actually be hurt. We got her inside, she looked a little "green" but said she would be fine. I knew her wrist was hurting, but we made our way to our seats. I actually just kinda floated to another place once Barry was on stage. I remember standing - singing - crying - more singing until the end... the whole evening flew by. After the concert we had a 3-1/2 hour drive home. The next morning my mom went to see a doctor and guess what? Her wrist was broken! Did I feel bad!! I'd like to take her back to see Barry and have her actually be able to enjoy the concert as much as I did. Barry, you are the best EVER!! - Debbie Leeman (Guttenberg, Iowa) (3/21/2011)

This concert was great for me. Three months earlier I had just come from Las Vegas to see Barry. So I didn't have too much of the Post Manilow Blues. I had really good seats. The songs and music always make me happy. What else can I say? Every Barry concert is a wonderful memory for me. Barry, you are the best! Love ya!! One of your biggest fans, Lisa (of Chicago, IL) (7/24/2008)

Fabulous show. I now know why Barry's considered a total entertainer. He's the ultimate performer. I had the best time I've ever had at any concert I've ever been to. Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! - Julie Mule' (Chicago, IL) (4/22/2009, 9/19/2009)

These concert tickets were a last minute purchase for us, so our seats were in the rafters. I was very bummed, but before the show a gentleman came around and asked how many were in our party. We told him "two" and he gave us two front row tickets. Amazing evening. - David Wolf (Glouster, OH) (11/30/2010)

First Show: Everything was GREAT! - Sidney McCloud (Middleport, Ohio) (1/4/2012)

Really enjoy the concert, and opening act Brian [Culbertson]. - Diane Burdine (Rockville, MD) (2/10/2008)

This was my first arena Barry concert and it was awesome! I have seen him in Vegas but there is nothing like the energy of a approximately 20,000 seat arena packed with fans. Barry looked and sounded great and his band and backups never stopped entertaining us from start to finish. The songs selections were great and Barry sang "Could It Be Magic" and "Weekend In New England" with such feeling! Especially moving were the last two songs: "Old Friends" and "Forever and a Day." Barry shared with us that DC holds fond memories and he has performed here several times. I missed him as soon as he left the stage. Barry, Please come back! Virginia and Maryland and DC LOVE you!! - Linda Foster (Centreville, VA) (2/11/2008)

Wonderful concert! Went so fast; always want more. I had seats on the floor 8 rows out. Keep hoping I get to dance with Barry... Maybe one day. Please don't ever stop coming East. We love you and can't get enough. Take care. - Wendy Mumma (Clearspring, MD) (2/14/2008)

The show was just amazing. Barry's colleagues and friends were there to enjoy the evening as well. The music was fantastic, and what a great evening for our family to spend together. One of the most memorable evenings for us. Thank you for everything "B". - Stephanie Prince (of Arkansas) (2/16/2008)

To attend a Barry Manilow Concert on Valentine's Day was a "dream come true." I have loved his music since the 70's and never tire of hearing him sing and play the piano. He is a prolific songwriter and his singing and music inspires the soul ... and his upbeat songs are so uplifting. My son arranged to get me box seats at the Staples Center,with the intention of taking me to the concert on the night of Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, he had an event in Las Vegas the same night that couldn't be changed. He felt so badly about not being able to take me, but I assured him it was fine. So even though I went alone, I soon forgot that no one else was with me because it was truly the most wonderful night of my life. From the very first song to the last, every moment was exciting. I felt as though he was singing right to me, as I'm sure every other lady did too! Keep on singing, Barry! Your music will never grow old and neither will you! We love you and thank you for all the years of beautiful songs, hard work and traveling to make this world a better place. God bless you and keep you well is my prayer. - Connie Lee Davis (Seal Beach, CA) (2/8/2010)

The show was awesome from the opening act to the encore! I was fortunate once again to have a front row seat. I really liked the changes he put into the show. I've always loved the song "Ready to Take a Chance Again" so I was thrilled to see him sing it live for the first time! Brought back memories of my college days playing his albums over and OVER in the dorm! San Jose is such a beautiful city. What a great way for my husband and I to spend our holiday weekend off from work. Barry, you're the greatest! Love you always!! - Donna Ruberti (Clayton, NJ) (2/16/2008)

I flew down to San Jose to visit my sister for the weekend and went to the Barry concert. Had a great time and Barry is always so upbeat and enjoyable to watch. Thanks for all the great music over the years. Still a fan after 32 years! - Debbie Nichols (Spokane, WA) (3/26/2008)

I brought my mom from Denver, CO, to see Barry with me. The show was as good as every one that I've seen before! The thought of sitting in the front row made my 73 year old mom feel better than she had in years. Thank you, Barry, for a fabulous show! - Carolyn F. (of San Mateo, CA) (4/17/2008)

It was my last good memory of one of my best friend Rosalind Rosas (ROZ), A.K.A. "LadyBug". "LadyBug" was diagnosed with Stage II Metastasis Breast Cancer/HER 2 Positive in 2006 and continues to battle cancer. She is like a Warrior out in the battle field ready and willing to continue fighting. "LadyBug" and I took pictures at this event, and I can not find them for the life of me! Please e-mail me if you have any photos. - Geneva Walls (San Jose, CA) (9/15/2009)

In the late 70's, I was a young single mother of two. My eldest daughter (then just a toddler) and I had "our song" and it was Barry's "Can't Smile Without You". One day (late '70s), my ex-husband came and took her from me (I had a restraining order at the time) and for over two months, I didn't know where she was. Through the grace of God, I got her back. Throughout the years that remained our song. She surprised me with tickets to Barry's concert in February 2008. Barry performed that song and I was so emotionally overwhelmed to be able to hold my (now adult) daughter's hand while listening to that song. Then in September 2009, she almost died giving birth (amniotic fluid embolism). She took 41 units of blood and blood products. As I sat vigil at the hospital for three days praying that God would save her, that song went through my mind over and over. God blessed our entire family and she made a full recovery (and her first born son Ryan is healthy as well). Everytime I hear that song it reminds me of how blessed I truly am! - Kathy (of Redwood City, California) (5/10/2012)

Texas/Dallas
(American Airlines Center)
An Evening of Music and Passion

I've liked Barry a lot since high school in the 70's. Saw him once at Rivinia, IL, but barely remember it. My wife got us tickets for the Dallas show, and I went along because she used to be a HUGE fan of his. I was overcome and amazed - it was the best show I've ever seen! Yes, he is older, but his energy, voice, music, attitude, and universal "wholesomeness" made it well worth the $$$ and beyond! - G. Zultner (Dallas, TX) (2/20/2008)

Wow, two bands for the price of one! I'm speaking of the warmup smooth jazz band for Barry - Brian Culbertson in Dallas, TX. It was great! Then Barry Manilow finally came on stage and it was awesome!! Remembering the things I saw and heard this go round: American Airlines Center and plaza big and beautiful; La Condesa Mexican food Restaurant, yummy! The lighting, screens, and stage were fabulous; Culbertson band featured a member of Earth, Wind and Fire and sang the song "September," fun! Then THE Barry Manilow appeared on stage fashionably late and sang very well until 10:30 p.m., Tuesday night. It was a fantabulous show with his singers and 60's production. He danced with a lady named Darcy who almost fainted in his arms, she couldn't say her name for a while as they were slow dancing; she kept jumping up and down and screaming as she exited the stage! We saw her after the show and she was still all excited, Ha! I wonder why?! Barry mentioned Dallas a lot and said that he remembered when he booked an outdoor concert in Dallas in the summertime and even his sweat was sweatin'! There were lots of fireflies waving their glow sticks so Barry could see them. He complimented the whole arena on how great we all were! It was wonderful attending this one and hearing both bands! Special thanks to David!! All the musicians were great featuring a round of melodic tunes played on the piano one musician after another. And the dualing saxophone and trombone... way cool! Plus the singers and Barry singing, of course! So keep singing Barry, we love your songs and how you showcase them! It was a fantabulous concert and one I'll always remember! - Kathy Grayless (Missouri City, TX) (2/28/2008)

My first concert and I enjoyed it very much. It was great! - Phyllis (of Texas) (4/13/2008)

This was the 10th concert that both my daughters and I attended (If Barry is anywhere around our area, we buy tickets to go!). This concert I was very impressed with. Barry seemed so relaxed and the music and his singing were above what I have heard in the past. We didn't think that I would ever see him sing and perform better. - Diane Hoover (Tucson, AZ) (6/19/2009)

I loved seeing Barry in Dallas. I was 8th row, practically center and I felt I was so close to him I could even see his beautiful blue eyes! That was the best! - Lynn Mayfield (Denver, CO) (12/4/2009)

Best concert I've EVER seen! Brian Culbertson was a special treat, then Barry blew me AWAY!! - Lori (of Ft. Lauderdale, FL) (3/16/2008)

I couldn't believe the talent of all the performers (including Brian Culbertson) and the excitement and personality of Mr. Manilow who began talking with the audience after I yelled out something about being from Brooklyn! It was truly magical. I also wish Barry a speedy recovery. - Kathryn (of Cape Coral, Florida) (12/21/2011)

March 5-8: Barry was fabulous in his first week back to Vegas! It was a week of memories with special friends and Barry was in top form! It was great seeing The Mayflower again! I always love hearing "Looks Like We Made It", my favorite song and this week Barry threw in so many great "moves" I am still thinking about it now! The songs were fantastic, filled with emotion. I love the new ending to the show. Barry you were HOT, as always! Can't wait to see you again!! - Mary Flick (of New Jersey) (3/10/2008)

All my life since I was teen it was my dream to one day see Barry in a show. My dream came true when I asked my daughter what she would like as a gift for her sweet fifteen (in Mexico all girls have this big celebration) and she told me that the best gift would be if we can save up to go to see Barry to Las Vegas!! So we saved money for six months and then we were at the show! Just to remember this incredible feeling was amazing! We just went to Vegas for the show, and that was worth it!! - Margarita Zapata Hurtado (of Mexico) (8/3/2010)

March 8: I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT the concert. BARRY makes me smile. His music touches my soul. When I am sad, I listen to Barry. When I am happy I want to share my mood with Barry's music. I hope I don't sound like a freak, but I truly love who Barry is. I love that Barry has a music foundation to get instruments to the schools that can't afford it. MUSIC has been such an important part of my life that I hope the younger kids get the chance to experience all the magic music can provide. I know when Barry was younger he went a different route and perhaps let fame get to him -- totally understandable -- I am so happy he has found that life is so much more than fame. Barry, I am happy you are on the wellness road and I truly hope you know how very much you and your music means to not only to me, but soooo very many people. I JUST got a job after being out of work for 14 months, and I AM [going] to see my man (Barry) on Dec. 9, 2012! Your music keeps me sane (I really am NOT a freakin' nutcase, just excited that life is back on track!). - Lisa Hobaica (Phoenix, Arizona) (9/7/2012)

March 14: I am one of the luckiest girls ever! This was my 4th birthday celebration in Vegas at the Best concert with the Best Performer ever!! You know it had been 10 months since my last time seeing Barry and it felt so good to walk into the Hilton and see all of him everywhere. You learn to love everything about the Hilton and the whole "BARRY EXPERIENCE." It is just magical and always a dream come true. I feel as if those days spent in Vegas, with the anticipation of the night of seeing him, getting all beautiful, going into the M store and buying the "NEXT" thing I want, walking around with the little Black and Red Manilow bag are such an honor in my life. I had my first row ticket and just took it all in as if for the first time. He actually said Hello to me during "Copacabana." I can never watch and hear the way he does "Mandy" enough. I went with one of my best friends and she was so excited to see that. I miss him the minute we walk out of the concert BUT only now I did NOT cry as I know I will see him again soon. I took a really cool cruise this year again, and all of my traveling is really awesome but have to say my "BARRY TRIPS" are still hard to top. I love you always Mr. Barry Manilow. You are the one of the best gifts God has ever allowed me to have in my life. - Sandy Devine (El Paso, TX) (4/15/2008)

An Evening of Music and Passion

WONDERFUL concert. Many of my favorites were sung. Barry has been a favorite of mine for many, many years. He never gets old, nor does his music! - Debbie Britt (Valdese, NC) (3/28/2008)

Barry was once again AMAZING in Raleigh. His performance last night not only blew me away but he picked a good friend of mine, Deanna, as his dance girl! What a night of memories! Since I don't live in Raleigh, I was really surprised when Barry said he hadn't been there since the 80's. I'm sure Raleigh was thrilled to have him back. I was overjoyed to be there. The show had many of my favorite "Manilow" songs. The full version of "Could It Be Magic" was so beautiful along with "Weekend In New England." The Man is phenomenal! I wish he knew just how good he makes us all feel at his shows! We love you Barry, don't ever stop!! - Mary Flick (of New Jersey) (3/28/2008)

Last night we saw Barry at the RBC Center, Raleigh, NC. The show was to have been held in January, but was cancelled due to an ice storm. Barry never ceases to amaze me. I have to say that I think this was by far his best performance yet! Brian Culbertson and his jazz band opened the show. What a pleasant and unexpected surprise. Barry appeared in silhouette from the rear of the stage - dramatic, as always. He is certainly a phenomenal showman. He was impeccably dressed and started the show with a wonderful medley. He just kept going and going and going. The audience went nuts when he came down to floor level and picked a gal in the first row to dance (swoon). After numerous encores, confetti and streamers were hurled into the audience. I caught my fair share and will add it to some from previous concerts. Just when I think Barry s show can't get any better, he proves me wrong. Thanks, Barry, for a wonderful evening. I have more memories to treasure forever! Will there be a next time? I sure hope so!! - Pat Darnall (Greensboro, NC) (3/28/2008)

Oh my goodness! What was there not to like? Barry was amazing!! This was my first concert ever and I was amazed at how he related to the audience. It was like you were the only one he was singing and talking to. I tried to explain to my friends how incredible it was and I explained it like this: You are at an amusement park and you just rode your most favorite ride ever, that incredible rush you have and great desire to get back on when it's over. You just want to ride it again and again. That is just what I'm going to do. My husband and I will be heading to Vegas soon! This time my goal is to meet him!! - Christine Vlas (Winston Salem, NC) (4/5/2008)

Barry is by far the best entertainer on the planet. He just gets better and better. We traveled 10 hours to see him. Then the show was canceled... But we traveled 10 hours again. It was worth every minute! I just wish he would come South more frequently for those of us who can't make those long trips! - Sharon (of Chattanooga, TN) (4/17/2009)

A group of "fanilows" and I rented a van (the "vanilow") and headed to Raleigh to see the "man". Yes, we were the crazy ladies in the parking lot at the RBC Center. We had the MOST fun and we all still talk about that wonderful night. Barry was phenomenal... I just love him (and have since I got my first album in 1978). So, from the "crazy vanload of Fanilows" (Chris, Gayle, Leigh, Marian, Kim, Debbie and Katrina) we love you Barry!! - Katrina (of Greensboro, NC) (6/17/2009)

My favorite Barry concert was my most recent, only because he gets better every time I see him. Also, it was the first time in several years my son-in-law had seen Barry and I bought him and me the tickets for Christmas. The concert was originally scheduled for March but we had predictions of snow (we don't get much in NC) and the concert was postponed. Finally the day arrived and it was worth waiting for. Seeing the look of joy on my George's face was worth every thing. - Valerie Dattilo (Carthage, NC) (8/9/2010)

The original concert date was rescheduled due to predicted snowy weather in Atlanta (the preceding town concert). Barry's Raleigh concert changed from the perfect Friday night to a weekday night during our huge ACC basketball tourney. Many fans chose to forego the reschedule, but Barry sang his heart out beyond belief anyway. I was on my feet the entire concert. He was filled with energy and magnetism just like it was his usual sell-out crowd. I was so overwhelmed, I cried myself to sleep that night with tears of joy!! Thank you, Barry. I love you. - Sara Held (Raleigh, North Carolina) (4/3/2011)
BARRY MANILOW will perform in support of his latest album The Greatest Songs of the Seventies with Special Guest Brian Culberson at the RBC Center on March 27th at 8:00 p.m.

With worldwide sales of more than 75 million records, the success of Barry Manilow is a benchmark in popular music. He is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, according to R&R (Radio & Records) and Billboard magazines. Rolling Stone crowned him "a giant among entertainers... the showman of our generation," and Frank Sinatra summed up Manilow best when Ol' Blue Eyes told the British press, "He's next".

Barry Manilow played a major role in defining the decade of the '70s at the start of his career, just as he went on to become a core artist - onstage, in the recording studio, on television, and in motion picture soundtracks - throughout the '80s, '90s, and '00s. Now he honors his formative decade on The Greatest Songs Of The Seventies.

The Greatest Songs Of The Seventies is only the latest example of Barry Manilow's timeless appeal to every cross-section of society from the working girl to the sophisticated pop fan, from teens to teens-at-heart. As the charter member of the Arista artist roster, Manilow has won a unique place in the pantheon of American performers.

(Philips Arena)
An Evening of Music and Passion

My wife [and I] attended Barry's concert here in Atlanta. It has been around 8 years since we last saw Barry in concert in Dayton, Ohio. As with all Barry Manilow concerts, you will certainly be entertained by the energy of the crowd, the screaming fans, but most importantly a true entertainer who sings from his heart and conveys warmth and intelligence. The Atlanta concert was such a treat. Brian Culbertson is a true talent. His music was the perfect prelude to a night full of "music and passion". Barry was great! Loved "I Am Your Child," "I Made It Through The Rain," and "Ready To Take A Chance Again." "Brooklyn Blues" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" were simply wonderful performances. Barry's voice was strong throughout the whole concert. The ending of the show was a treat hearing "Old Friends" and "Forever and A Day!" Thank you again, Mr. Barry Manilow, for 30-plus years of musical genius, wonderful lyrics and melodies, and songs that touch us deeply within our souls. Continued success! Shalom! - Mike Drayton (Atlanta, GA) (3/31/2008)

Music and Passion says it all! Barry put on the most spectacular show. All the old favorites with his Vegas show included. I also own the DVD. It is awesome. I will be making a trip to the Hilton in Vegas. I thank him for all the enjoyment of music he has given me. - Sharon Vigneri (Augusta, GA) (4/1/2008)

[What I liked about this show was] It was indoors! The last concert I attended was outside in July 1997 (104 degrees)! Seriously, I was thrilled and my 15-year old niece was excited. It was her first BARRY experience. I was very impressed with the spirit if excellence in Barry's and Brian's performances. And Barry is cute too! - Sherrie (of Columbus, GA) (4/16/2008)

[No] tornado or rain or broken down car could keep me or my "Barry" sister from seeing our appointed "MSG"! And did he deliver! Brian Culbertson was also just amazing. A full evening of Manilow love. Pawn whatever you have to see this MAN!! - Dawn Goodfriend (Lawrenceville, GA) (4/22/2008)

Two years ago my daughter gave me tickets to see Barry as a Mother's Day present and I attended the concert in Atlanta, GA. It was just like I was back [seeing Barry] at [Radio City Music Hall in New York City, 1984]. What a wonderful experience! Thanks, Barry!! - Carol Hutchins (Augusta, GA) (4/24/2010)

There was this one moment when Barry said something like, "you think that [last song] was good, just wait..." Then he sat down at the piano and started singing "Weekend In New England" and I felt something war come over my whole body and I just started crying. It was like I felt connected from my experiences to what he [was singing about]. After that I pretty much cried like a baby for quite a while, but I sang every note of every song with him. Because he is my favorite musician, he touched me with "I Write The Songs" when I was about 10 after my parents' divorce [and has] continued to touch me with every song I sing with him. Barry, I hope you read this [as because of you] I even became a singer and songwriter! I love you!! - April Dawn (of Georgia, formerly Texas) (6/2/2010)

It seems Barry has always been there. But, really "with me" for the past 4 years. I will never forget his concert in Atlanta, and it made me realize that I HAVE to go to Vegas! Can you believe it actually snowed in Atlanta causing the originally scheduled concert to be rescheduled?? I thought I would die when I saw the notice posted at the arena: "The Barry Manilow concert scheduled for tonight has been cancelled due to inclement weather." [The rescheduled show] was my first (and so far) only Barry concert. The minute Barry stepped out on the smoke-filled stage, I knew exactly why I have loved him and his music for so long. Just cannot take that feeling away. Waiting for him to come back to ATLANTA!! - Sandy Wedgeworth (Union, Mississippi) (4/22/2008, 8/17/2011)

April 11: Barry just gets better and better and he seems so appreciative of his fans and audience! I LOVE his voice - the show was FANTASTIC! I've already started planning my return trip to Vegas! - Renee K. (of South Bend, IN) (4/13/2008)

April 11-12: I recently saw two Music & Passion performances that were amazing. April 11 and April 12 were phenomenal! Barry belted out "Memory" and several other songs that are my absolute favorites. The crowd was wild. I loved meeting Barry at the Platinum experience. Thanks, Barry, for the amazing performances I will always remember. "Moonlight Serenade" was beautiful and you chose my friend to dance with. It was so special for her. I will be back in August to see More Music & Passion!! - Linda Foster (Centreville, VA) (4/14/2008)

April 11: I had the pleasure of meeting Barry at platinum! He is the sweetest, kindest and most adorable man! I am still floating! Thank you, Barry, for making my platinum so special and for giving us your fantastic shows! You are a very special person with a very special talent for making people happy! - Mary Flick (of New Jersey) (4/14/2008)

April 11: The show was really exceptional! Barry came out in a burst of energy and he kept it up throughout the whole show. The crowd was with him and we spent a lot of the evening on our feet! When we heard the first notes of "Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed" we went wild! He also sang "Memory", one of my favourite songs, with an incredible depth of emotion. And to top it all he chose me as his dance partner during "Moonlight Serenade"! Thank you, Barry, for giving me such a wonderful memory.You were so sweet to me!! I'm the Brit who lives in France, as I tried to explain to you, but it didn't come out very clearly, and you said, "My goodness! What a complicated story!" I am now back in France but I'm still on a high and I can't wait till October when I'll come back again! - Janet Fauret (Strasbourge, France) (4/17/2008)

April 11: Where to begin? The crowd was on their feet early and raring to go and I DO mean "RARING"! Mr. Music was full of energy to! Must have been those Platinum Girls that "pumped him all up" (before the show)! What a great group they were! He treated us that night to the most beautiful power-packed version of "Memory" that has EVER been performed live. The man was amazing! Then comes "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed" along with the coveted microphone stand. What a sight that was! That was a rock and roll, down-and-dirty emotion-packed song if I have ever heard one that had the crowd absolutely in a frenzy! Talk about "in the zone!" The Man was definitely focused THAT NIGHT. What a perfect night it was and he made so many people feel so great, with songs from the most sentimental of power ballads that only HE can do to the powerhouse version of "Memory"! Just come out and blow the roof off with those two songs and then just sit on stage and talk to the crowd would have been "just fine"! Thank you for My Best Day Ever and maybe in October I can add Another Best Day Ever when a WHOLE BUNCH OF US arrive at the Hilton again for an Encore! It is a whole week after that show and I STILL CAN"T FOCUS! Barry Manilow is like Medicine and I NEED A REFILL soon! - Carolyn Farren (of Pennsylvania) (4/19/2008)

Barry surprised us in Vegas as I made a fool of myself and cried when he was singing a song beside the stage where we were seated in the VIP section. Barry had to hold a paper up so he could finish the song. At that concert Barry seemed more into the music than [in past concerts attended]. - Diane Hoover (Tucson, AZ) (6/19/2009)

First Show (April 11) - Marcia Muniz (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) (3/13/2010)

[What I liked about this show was] sitting on stage left in April of 2008 at the Las Vegas Hilton. Barry had revised the show from the Dew Drop Inn piano bar to the upright piano and performed "Jump Shout Boogie." He then began to sing and the piano moved away leaving Barry right in front of me. I stuck out my hand and while he was singing he said "hi" to me and shook my hand. I was beyond excited. Hopefully some day I can meet him and thank him personally for a lifetime of music and memories and for inspiring me to be a musician/performer. - Tom Vitello, Jr. (Niagara Falls, NY) (7/28/2011)

The Barry Manilow concert was awesome. I have always wanted to go but was unable too. This time I thought my birthday was around the corner, so why not?! Barry is the most talented sexiest man alive in my book. The concert was every thing I had hoped for - it could have gone on for ever! He seemed to me to be very caring and singing just to us although I know that is how he is All The Time. But his songs are so moving and caring. He IS love, music and passion! Thank you, Barry, for singing to us. Please come again. - Gerri Barbeau (St. Louis, MO) (4/27/2008)

Barry, you just continue to outdo yourself everytime I see you! Tonight's show will be a favorite of mine. It was a night of Barry and good friends! Nothing compares to seeing you in a room surrounded with fans who adore you! You are in your element and one look at you says it all. You give us so much enjoyment and I hope you are feeling it because you sure look like you are having a great time! - Mary Flick (of New Jersey) (4/27/2008)

As always, Barry gave us 110%! And the show was out of this world!! When he sang "Looks Like We Made It" I thought I would have a heart attack as it was very PASSIONATE! Thank you, Barry, for all the beautiful music and wonderful memories. - Deanna Bell (Newton, NC) (4/28/2008)

My Mom and I just went to our 5th Barry concert last night at the brand new Sprint Center in KC. What an awesome show. Last summer we went to see his show in Las Vegas and the concert last night was just like that one. Thanks, Barry, for bringing your Las Vegas show to the Midwest! He really plays to the crowd and the acoustics in our new arena just made his songs that much better. Can't wait for him to return to KC. His concerts never disappoint and everyone seemed to leave the arena with smile. After all... we can't smile without Barry Manilow! - Kelly H. (Kansas City, MO) (4/27/2008)

What a great show! The arena was filled with love. Barry's performance was amazing. I am so happy I made the trip! - Mary Flick (of New Jersey) (4/27/2008)

The seats I obtained from BMIFC were quite excellent. 2nd row, center. I loved that after all these years seeing him from afar, [this time being] so close I could see the sparkle in his eye, the emotion and the smiles of appreciation and satisfaction on his face. I felt his music like no other time before. I felt privileged to be a part of this concert and the time he shared with his fans. He truly loves what he does, appreciates his fans, and it's wonderful to have been a part of a spectacular moment in time, shared with the most talented and creative artist in the universe. I am so grateful to have the privilege to have seen him so many times. He and his music are part of what has made my life special. Thank you, Barry. - Dana L. Russell (Kansas City, MO) (6/13/2009)

I liked EVERYTHING about the concert! From the moment Barry stepped on stage, I started crying hysterically. I can't even explain why I love Barry so much but it's all tied to my childhood somehow... Back in the early '80s, Barry was to be in concert in Salina, KS and I was going with my boyfriend. We skipped school that Friday before the Saturday show and my mom grounded me, took our tickets and she went with her best friend. I never got over it. Well, Barry didn't come back to Kansas again until 2008 and I went with my favorite Aunt, Renee. We had the time of our lives and I was crying so hard finally seeing him, the girl next to me tried to make me feel better and said as a joke, "you're not going to throw your panties up there are you??" I was a 41-year-old woman living my dream. I can't explain the pure happiness I felt. Thank you so much, Barry! I know I'm just another fan of yours out of millions but you touch me in a way that can't be spoken in words. Please come back to Kansas for more shows! Love you!! - Michele Sutter (Chapman, KS) (7/9/2010)

I had a front row seat for the Platinum Experience. It was so emotional after meeting Barry, that this concert was so special. I have been to a lot of Barry's concerts and feel so uplifted and happy after each one, each concert is so different and magical and Barry is a fantastic performer in every aspect of his music. Barry gets me through tough times and I am happy that he is a part of my life. I have seen many artists live but no one can take the place of Barry. He is a true showman. - Christine Marshall (Preston, England) (5/16/2009)

April 30: My husband took me to Vegas for our anniversary, and we had stage seats. When I saw Barry coming over to the side that we were on, I knew that we were going to get a handshake. When we did, I was so happy! That is why this is my favorite show. Very exciting! - Barbara Dayton (Philadelphia, PA) (6/7/2009, 3/18/2010)

May 7: Every concert I see turns out to be my favorite, but the one I saw in Las Vegas on May 7, 2008, was very special to me. I had tickets for the stage. Being very close to Barry made me feel like he was singing just for me. - Anne Hoxie (Boynton Beach, FL) (12/12/2009)

We were sitting on the stage and I was chosen to dance with Barry on stage. Of course, I felt a bit intimidated, but excited too! - Candy Sharp (Peoria, AZ) (6/14/2010)

Favorite Show (May 10): My favorite concert was "Music and Passion" on May 10th, 2008, because I was on the Rock Bottom Left Side of the stage and Barry came up and shook my hand, and a good one at that! I must say he is quite handsome and has such beautiful eyes. - Cheryl Bowers (Lake Isabella, California) (7/23/2011, 3/24/2013)

May 31: My 10-year-old daughter and I had done the PBS "Meet and Greet" the night before and had a wonderful time at both the concert and meeting Barry afterward. The next day my daughter asked if I thought Barry would remember her if he ever met her again. I admitted that I doubted it since he has such a busy schedule and meets so many people on a daily basis. That night at the concert we were sitting in the stage-side seats. When Barry came to our side of the stage to shake hands with the audience, my daughter stood up to shake his hand. Barry looked up at her, took her hand, his face lit up with a huge smile, and he told her it was "so nice to see her again" while shaking her hand. This was the biggest thrill of her young life! What an impression to make on a young girl ... that a mega-superstar, someone whom she has listened to, watched, and admired her whole life would remember her! After 33 years of being a fan of Barry's, this moment has to be the most dear to me. Thank you, Barry, for making my daughter feel so special that night. It was a moment she will always remember. - Diane Floyd (Springfield, MO) (10/9/2008)

It was one of the most memorable evenings of my life! Barry did not come to my hometown very often. If he did, I was too young to attend. The concert was very magical for me. Barry is a very sincere human being who surprisingly enough is very funny. The fact that he cries at his own songs proves that he is real and authentic and not a fake. I am hooked and hope to see him again soon. If anyone has pictures from the Montreal show, please e-mail me. It would greatly be appreciated. - Louise Blahovici (Montreal, Quebec) (6/11/2008)

My brother was going through a tough time... He usually played piano at home, but during that period, for months he didn't even want to play. One day, he timidly started to play a piece I recognised as Barry Manilow's song. A few days before, I had seen advertising about Barry's show coming to Montreal. I jumped on the occasion and bought two tickets for my brother and me and we went to see the show. He said it was the best show of his life, and I, myself, was ecstatic during the show, standing and dancing the whole time (My apologies to the people behind me!) and surprisingly singing out loud to songs I learned 30 years earlier (My apologies to the people in front of me!!). My brother is doing fine now, thanks to the magic of Barry's music! Mr. Manilow, I will never thank you enough to have given me back my brother and lifting my own spirits at the same time with your Beautiful Music and your unique way of performing it on stage with such energy and kindness. I wish you all the happiness in the world! - Sylvie Robert (Montreal, Canada) (12/30/2010)

What I liked about this show was EVERYTHING! Barry, you are a fabulous musician, artist, and jingle writer too! I am sure you have heard it all before [about] the influence you have had on people's lives and what YOUR MUSIC has meant to people... Every one of your songs has a significant meaning for me in my life and so many of your songs still choke me up to this day. I have never heard a single song sung by you that I did not adore! I am a truly dedicated Barry Manilow fan. It is with your incredible talent and amazing influence that you have been able to have this kind of affect on people, which is truly remarkable... I was raised by my grandmother and my single mom who felt that music was very important in our lives. She was born in 1902 and I was born in 1958, but my Gran and I were on the same page and we liked songs that had meaning. To find ANY singer in our lives that we could even be on the same page about was truly AMAZING. And that singer would be you!! - Sandy Edwards (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) (7/4/2011)

This show was a trip down memory lane! - Martine Cabana (Montreal, Canada) (7/30/2011)

Wow, Barry, another great performance! I am so fortunate that I am able to travel to these concerts. Thanks for making them so special. You put your heart and soul into each one and I love seeing your reaction as well as ours. Keep them coming. We love you! - Mary (of New Jersey) (6/8/2008)

How lucky can I be, when I'm able to be part of my two favourite nieces' first ever Barry Manilow concert!? Along with my sister Charlene, my nieces Olivia (5 years old) and Madison (3 years old), we had the most spectacular time of our lives. With glowsticks in hand and Barry belting out all their favourite hits as well as a few that will become future favourites, we were up and dancing from the first note to the final goodbye. I have never had so much FUN in all the concerts I have attended (and I have attended plenty!). When I let my sister know that Barry was making a visit to Toronto, she was so excited that the girls were actually going to get to see Barry somewhere other than a 61" television screen. I could go on and on about how Barry is a big part of our lives, but anyone reading this already knows and understands. Olivia, Madison and Charlene... Thank you all for making this night so SPECIAL to me. I Love You All. - (Uncle) Wayne O'Shell (Courtice, Ontario, Canada) (7/4/2008)

I have been a Barry fan since 1974... My Son grew up singing his songs and today he is a successful singer and songwriter and plays many instruments. Barry puts his heart and soul into everything, he just writes Beautiful Music. He is so compassionate and his show in Toronto was absolutely fantastic. What a showman! I think he was overwhelmed that so many people came out to his show after not being in Toronto for over 25 years. There is no one like him, no one can't touch him, and I hope he continues to do what he does best... entertain me! See ya in Rochester, Barry, on July 7th!! - Sheila Angus (Burlington, Ontario, Canada) (4/24/2009)

I have never had the chance to see Barry until last year. I just think he is not only a great singer, but he is a wonderful all round entertainer. Since seeing his show last year I have lost count of how many DVDs and CDs I have bought. I hope I get a chance to go and see him again. Thanks, Barry! - Jackie Black (Collingwood, Ontario, Canada) (8/13/2009)

I have seen so many Barry Manilow concerts over the years. Some years I saw the same concert as many as ten times! But what I missed most was Barry's singing with Debra Byrd to the Dionne Warwick songs. The two of you had such great harmony together. Every concert he does leaves an everlasting impression on me one way or another. Love Always, Mary L. (Menzies) Cranston (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) (11/24/2009)

There's nothing Barry can't do and there's nothing I don't like. I just adore Barry. I've been listening to Barry from the beginning; his first hit single "Mandy," the song that changed his life and mine. It's funny, I've never personally met Barry but somehow I feel like I know him through his music and his stories. I love the story he told about his grandfather taking him to a 25-cent booth to record "Happy Birthday" the way he told this story with the music, "I Made It Through The Rain" leading up to when he first SANG in the booth to playing in Carnegie Hall. "What a life" and what a life you have, Barry. I have nothing but absolute devotion and respect for Barry. Maybe we're twins - Gemini that is! He's a great entertainer/performer, the best I've seen! Well, my dear friend Barry, I will see you in Windsor, Ontario (August 2011). I hope you read this and call me up for at least 30 seconds of fame! - Denise Ridley (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) (6/23/2011)

I got my tickets through the BMIFC and I was the closest I have ever been. Barry's voice was like silk that night. He sang so many favourites, and he spoke directly to us. It really doesn't matter which concert you go to, he is a professional and he is funny. His voice has only improved with age and the music he writes is pure genious. - Caryn Taylor (Toronto, Canada) (8/27/2011)

Barry was energized! Love was all around. The crowd was alive! The songs were great!! - Judy (of Toronto, Canada) (8/28/2011)

June 17: Barry's Birthday show. My very first live show, I couldn't have chosen better! Barry was on fire tonight. He sang a lot of his own songs, his voice was fabulous and he looked great. His backup singers brought a birthday cake onto the stage at one point. Everyone sang "Happy Birthday" and he looked so happy to be with people he loved. He did say Thank You all for being with me on such a horrible day, he couldn't think of anywhere he would rather be than with his friends. The intimacy of the Hilton theatre was lovely and I was in the front row. I can't describe what it's like up close, it was just awesome! I was fortunate to attend the BMIFC birthday bash afterwards and Barry came in! No one was expecting him so it was lovely to see him being so relaxed, with a glass of wine in his hand saying Hi to people. The people from BMIFC were wonderful and gave us a great evening. What a way to be introduced to the Manilow experience! June 20: My second show and could I have asked for anything better! I sat on the side stage seat and Barry asked me to dance. This was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life, that he would actually choose me! Thank you, Barry! The show, what I can remember of it, was fabulous again. Many of his own songs again. It was wonderful to see him singing "Even Now," "Weekend in New England," "Somewhere Down The Road," the Mayflower medley, the 60's medley and more! His voice was great and he looked happy and relaxed. June 21: My third show! It was wonderful again and I was still floating on air [from the night before]. Tonight Barry did "Who's Been Sleeping in my Bed" and "The Best Of Me" (one of my favourite songs). He surpassed himself tonight and mentioned the fact that there were people from the UK in the audience. His band and backup singers really are the best in the business. Everyone looks like they are enjoying themselves so much, it comes across to the audience. Wonderful show Barry, thank you. - Joanne Solanki (of the UK) (7/5/2008)

June 17: If I never was able to see another show, this one will always be the most special for me. I guess God blessed me with being Barry's dance partner on his birthday, and those moments are ones I will never forget. Some things change your life in ways you can't explain and this night was one of those times for me. I've been with Barry for 33 years now and will be the last fan there in my wheelchair when he comes out on stage in his. - Lori Domingo (Tampa, FL (7/13/2008)

June 17: Barry's Birthday show! There was something about the whole show that just stands out from all the others [I've been to], and I think that's because I met a friend from the USA that I had met on the board and we finaly got to meet. We went to the show together, and of course, the Birthday Bash. So much about that show, that day, was just... well... like no other! Seeing Barry Live is amazing, but getting the chance to see him on his birthday...was AMAZING. Thank you, Barry! - Adele Whipp (Hull, Yorkshire, UK) (10/4/2009, 10/29/2010)

Every show is unique and special. We had the best time and I can't wait to come back and see your new shows. Love your enthusiasm and of course your beautiful voice! - Mary (of New Jersey) (6/28/2008)

June 26: I had a front row seat in the middle section with two friends and WOW, what a show! I loved to hear "Open Arms" and "Memory" especially. Barry looked and sounded perfect. Everyone seemed to have a great time. June 27: Tonight was the best ever sitting with two friends in the M3 front row section. We yelled and screamed and the more we did that the more animated Barry became. The crowd loved "Memory" and "Somewhere Down The Road." Barry was especially happy tonight and bouncy and twirling. Love to see him have fun with us. We loved hearing the "William Tell Overture" (Wow!). I think Barry stayed just a bit longer in the exit door savoring the moment and saying goodbye. Thank you, Barry! And to your band and backups - see you in August!! - Linda Foster (Centreville, VA) (6/30/2008)

June 26-27: Barry was hot and on fire! I had a front row seat for the 6/27 show with two of my friends and we had the time of our lives. Barry did "Open Arms", "Memory" and "Looks Like We Made It" with so much emotion and passion! Then Barry and the back-ups blew the audience away with the most fabulous "William Tell Overture." You could hear a pin drop in the showroom as Barry did "Somewhere Down the Road." Thank you so much, Barry! I hope you could see how much fun we were having. I still have a huge smile on my face from that show. Barry, you give us so much. Your music and your passion for music brings so much joy and happiness into our lives. I hope you know that everything you do for us is truly appreciated. Thank you, Barry, back-ups and band for the awesome shows. You are amazing! See you in August!! - Kendra (of St. Paul, MN) (7/2/2008)

June 27: I was one of the fortunate recipients of a fantastic show-stopping performance of the world-renowned Barry Manilow's Music and Passion show in Las Vegas. His legendary delivery of lyrics and emotion kept the audience spellbound as every song he sang came from the depths of his soul. Throughout the entire performance, Barry was rewarded with standing ovations seasoned with "Love you Barry," "You're wonderful," as well as "You're fantastic!" His admiration for his fans was evident by his warm and generous smile, followed by his words, "Thank you all, so very much." The opening number of "It's a Miracle" was upbeat, and followed by "Daybreak." Barry's emotional and very sensual interpretation of "Somewhere in the Night" brought fans to near pandemonium. The same is true when Barry sang, "Ready to Take a Chance Again," "Weekend in New England," and "Looks Like We Made It." His unadulterated pure emotions came through every lyric, innuendo, every facial expression, and every musical phrase as audience members felt he sang only to one single special person. Such is raw talent, and Barry definitely has talent! His subtle hip movements suggested his love affair with his audience and was met with resounding approval; his every look, stare and clenching of fists emphasized a particular lyric. Breaths grew faster and hearts pounded with obvious appreciation of his never-ending talent. As if this wasn't enough, the audience was treated to "The Old Songs," "Memory," "I Made It Through The Rain," as well as "Somewhere Down The Road." Tears could be seen in the eyes of some of the audience members. As a tribute to the 60's, Barry sang "Can't Take My Eyes Off From You," and "What The World Needs Now." Again, another performance by Barry was beyond compare to all other singing artists... past, present and most assuredly in the future. A special treat was afforded to his fans with the a cappella rendition of the "William Tell Overture" performed by Barry and his stellar background singers. Pure naked talent is the only way to describe this segment. "Mandy" with the chorus of "Could It Be Magic" as the ending, was more dynamic than when I saw Barry in April 2008. "I Write The Songs" brought the audience to their feet with deafening applause. The entire audience rocked to "Bandstand Boogie," "New York City Rhythm," "Can't Smile Without You," "They Dance," and certainly to the finale of "Copacabana." A reprise of "It's a Miracle," complete with streamers and confetti flowing from the ceiling brought the evening to an earth-shattering conclusion. Many an audience member sat mesmerized in their seats, staring at the now vacant stage; clearly in awe of the entire dynamic and utterly talented Barry Manilow - a man and his talent which will forever be indelibly etched in the hearts and memory of his audience. I too, was in a state of spell-bound admiration. I am, and forever will be Barry's life-long fan! - Cynthia B. Ainsworthe (St. Petersburg, FL) (7/5/2008)

June 25: Barry gave his usual 110%. He sang "Open Arms" and it was magical. Hearing and seeing him sing "Even Now," "Weekend in New England" and "Looks Like We Made It" is a dream come true. He sounds even better than just listening though an iPod! His facial expressions show how much he puts into every song. June 26: Could the show get any better? Very definitely Yes! Firstly there were more fans in the audience tonight and Barry responds when he knows that. But what capped the whole show for me tonight was his delivery of "Memory." He nailed it perfectly, out of the theatre, and down the strip!! I listen to this one All The Time on CD but listening and watching him do this one live was breathtaking! The song itself holds a message which is very personal to me at the moment and he had me in tears with this tonight. Thank you, Barry! At the beginning of the show, while a batter was being sorted out by Barry, the band started up "Brooklyn Blues," then Barry finished the song through. What a treat! It is a testament to his professionalism when he can do something spontaneous like this. This was an emotionally charged show tonight and Barry was brilliant! June 27: My last show of my trip! It was also my platinum night and it was wonderful to meet the man who was giving so much to me throughout my life and specially these 2 weeks. Tonight Barry gave it 110% as usual. He gave us "Memory" and the "William Tell Overture." This really enabled his back up singers to shine through with their talents. The whole band appeared relaxed and happy. I would just like to give a mention to the band and backup singers. They have been awesome for all shows I attended and are really the most talented group of musicians every night on stage (Kye is fantastic when the singers do "Copacabana"). All I can say is a very big thank you to Barry and all his band, crew and staff for what for me was an absolutely wonderful and magical journey! - Joanne Solanki (of the UK) (7/7/2008)

August 27: Great show! I missed the opening and dance segment but I heard it was fun. The front row gave many standing ovations and applause. Barry was in fine voice and seemed to enjoy presenting this new show to us. I love the lighting effects too. "Ships" and "Memory" are two songs I found outstanding. "Copacabana" had Barry on the catwalk alone. We had silver mylar streamers and confetti upon us - it's fun! August 29: An enthusiastic crowd tonight. I had a front row stage seat. My friend Marie had a lovely dance [with Barry on stage]! I love the chandelier that came down from above!! Barry was in fine voice and got many standing ovations. He looks so happy and handsome. I love the new show and feel it will change and evolve so I look forward to more surprises. August 30: Wow, this show was off the charts energy wise! Barry flew around on stage giving us Manilow fever. Much applause and standing ovations, and the "Could It Be Magic" uptempo version and BAMS blew the crowd away. I am hoarse from screaming! Love Barry's silver M belt buckle. What am amazing show! The crowd was ballistic in its enthusiasm. I am so glad I was able to go to Vegas and see Barry's shows. My friends and I had the very best time and Barry delivered 110% as he always does. Can't wait to go back! Thank you, Barry!! - Linda Foster (9/2/2008)

I had waited years to see Barry in concert, so to see him in Las Vegas was the BEST. It was so good, I will be going to see him at the Hilton again. I loved everything about the concert. It was a present for my 50th birthday... A few months early, but who cares!? It was really fantastic! - Carol (of Manchester, United Kingdom) (7/27/2009)

This concert was more personal as I could see Barry very close. You could see how much it made him happy to be there and singing. - Bonnie (Methuen, MA) (8/8/2009)

The end of August of 2008 had to be one of the most wonderful weekends ever for me. I have been a Barry fan for over 30 years and that weekend I got to meet the man himself! It was my first Platinum Experience and I had front row seats to all 3 shows. I had seen Manilow: Music and Passion many times during 2008 and now I got the chance to not only meet him, but to see his new show Ultimate Manilow: The Hits at the beginning. It was wonderful! I even got to talk to him about the new show and he asked what i thought. How do you answer that one!? I love anything he does, so it was easy: Barry, you sing whatever you want and we will be there to listen! With love, Bev Edelstein (St. Louis, MO) (10/30/2009)

Barry's new show is fabulous! The opening is very different and very catchy. I love all the ballads including "Ships" and "Somewhere Down The Road," and I love seeing Barry's personality come through on stage. All of the songs are beautiful but the showstopper has to be "Could It Be Magic"! What an energy filled performance. I think I have a new favorite song! Barry, thank you for giving your all each and every time. You really are fabulous and I hope you know how much we all enjoy seeing you on stage. You rock! I'll be back as soon!! - Mary (of New Jersey) (9/8/2008)

September 5: This was my "Platinum Experience" concert. I was sitting in the front row, looking at this WONDERFUL entertainer. I met a WONDERFUL man then saw the same man I met on stage. This will always stay in my heart as my favourite concert! Barry gives his heart every time he's on stage, and What a Heart! I love you, Barry. You're just wonderful!! - Vibeke Nielsen (of Denmark) (1/2/2009)

September 3: First of all, I love all of Barry's' shows because somehow, he makes each one very different and it's so entertaining to see so much talent and energy. He makes everyone feel so special and so many people can relate. I guess I liked this show because he did that wonderful uptempo version of "Could it be Magic." You don't really hear that one very much any more. He can really get into character with that song. I also love the many other shows I have been to because of the true emotion and the way he can get into a song. It's breathtaking! I also especially like the way he has been doing "Looks Like We Made it," "Ships" and "Weekend in New England." - LauraAnn Millard (New York City, NY) (7/30/2009)

September 6: I think I was in shock the entire concert! My sister-in-law gave me the trip to Las Vegas to see Barry for my birthday, and she and my Mom accompanied me. My first Barry concert was in 1976, and I had the nosebleed section seat - Barry was a "dot" on the stage, but I could clearly hear his magical voice. I had to wait 32 years to see him again, but WOW - what an experience! - Ann L. King (Moss Point, MS) (1/30/2011)

Ultimate Manilow, the Hits is absolutely phenomenal! I am blown away everytime I watch Barry perform his ballads like "Somewhere Down The Road." "Could It Be Magic" is so much fun along with all of the songs he has packed into the show. Thank you, Barry, for all that you give and all that you do. It is such a pleasure watching you put your heart and soul into your music Your charisma, your personality and your beautiful voice give the audience goosebumps! What a special person you are. Thank you for being "you"! - Mary (of New Jersey) (10/5/2008)

October 3: Wow, what can I say? Barry was especially great that night. He was hitting every note perfectly and the audience was just eating him up! That show was the first show I had a front row seat at. It was the best ever! Just being able to see him smile close up is good for me!! - Sandy (of New Jersey) (7/22/2009)

October 23/24/25: Thanks to Barry and his band and backups for another series of beautiful shows. The wardrobe of Barry's jackets and the silver jackets the girls wear with the black skirts and the red dresses are beautiful. The lighting in the theater is spectacular. Barry has so much energy flying around on stage. He sang "Ships" and "Memory," two songs which for me are so powerful! "Weekend In New England" was very poignant. I loved hearing the two 80's album selections: "Islands In the Stream" and "Never Gonna Give You Up." Those were two crowd pleasers! "Somewhere Down the Road" was especially moving at each performance. And "Copacabana" is always so much fun. You can feel such explosive energy in the showroom. Barry's voice was so powerful each night and he looked fabulous! Thank you Barry - you are the very best entertainer I have ever seen!! - Linda Foster (Centerville, VA) (10/28/2008)

Ultimate Manilow: The Hits...and then some

December 4-7: WOW! WOW! WOW! Well, I've seen him on tour, I've seen him in Las Vegas and now I've seen him in the UK and there really is something special about the UK for The Man and HE knows it! [Loved] the Deadly Medley! It is what we affectionately called the opening segment of "I'm Coming Back," "Wild Places," "I'm Your Man" and "Could it be Magic"! And to answer that question, YES, IT DEFINITELY WAS MAGIC! He bounced out on that stage like he was shot out of a cannon and NEVER EVER stopped other than the ballads such as "Somewhere Down the Road" which he did on a stool almost a capella! Amazing version of that song... You just can't ignore the affection and admiration that is felt by the UK fans and is definitely reciprocated by The Man himself! To be in that arena and look around from the very front row to the absolute top of the rafters and see nothing but blue glowsticks and a sea of people is nothing short of amazing and can only wonder what he is thinking at that moment of arriving out on stage and seeing that! It must be overwhelming, humbling and warm all at the same time. Can't imagine a better feeling in the world as an entertainer of his caliber to still have this after all of these years. The people of England were so warm and welcoming. Thanks also to the Stiletto Group and Fan Club officers such as Vicky, Kirsten, Tammy, Drew, Chris etc. They are an example of the "trickle down affect" or being part of an amazing team of people that care about other people. We know it starts from the top and Barry himself who will settle for nothing less than perfection and the team around him are exactly that; perfect and nice. If there was ever a doubt in anyone's mind about the UK being special, rest assured that I left there with no doubt in my mind that it is a legitimate love affair respected and enjoyed by both parties, Barry and the people of the UK. No wonder he writes songs for them and "Forever and a Day" is the perfect song for them! - Carolyn Farren (Philadelphia, PA) (12/8/2008)

December 4: I saw that Barry was coming to the UK. I am in the UK often (one and a half hours in a plane from Denmark to the UK) so I wouldn´t let this chance pass by. I hadn't seen BARRY in an arena show ever. This show was close to perfect! I saw a Barry Manilow I didn't know. He was sexy, beautiful, and wonderful, and had a strong BEAUTIFUL voice. I haven't the words enough in my vocabulary to describe! I LOVE BARRY in Las Vegas but the entertainer I saw in the UK was sparkling and emotional. He looked like a man who had missed his English fans. I was happy to be in the UK again and I was especially happy to see how LOVED Barry was there. Barry did a show I'll NEVER forget as long as I live! I hope and pray Barry will be back!! - Vibeke Nielsen (Copenhagen, Denmark) (4/15/2009)

December 6: The last time I'd seen Barry before was at Blenheim in 2004. After that show I never thought I'd see him again. But [when I found out] Barry was coming back I was literally in tears of happiness. I had seen him every time he came to the UK, the first time being in 1984 (I was 16 years old and I went with my Grandma; my mum said I was too young to see him at Blenheim in 1983), 1986 (again with my Grandma and auntie), 1988 (I followed him for the whole tour with friends), 1990 (I dragged my mum and dad to their first shows -- they were hooked!), 1991 (We all went again), 1993 (My sister had died a few weeks before the show ... we cried the whole way through but we got there and became closer in the process), 1994 (I was pregnant with my daughter and she kicked her way through every song ... we even went on stage with Barry at Wembley!), 1996 (My daughter was too young to go to the concert), 1998 (my daughter was 3 years old and we had 2nd row seats), 2000 (Barry was ill and cut his show short), 2002 (Went to all the shows again), and of course, 2004! ... On 6th December 2008, my dream came true, to have the love of my life (Mark), Danielle my daughter, Stefan my son, all at a Barry Concert together. I sat there in complete paradise. Mark held my hand and I went back in time. I laughed and cried, my son thought I was nuts! I remembered the first concert, I remembered Danni kicking ... the flashbacks came thick and fast. If I never see Barry again (I hope I will), I will die happy because I had this one night where everything came together. My son loved it and even admitted it to his friends and so did Mark -- now he gets it! I want to say thank you to Barry for being there for all of these years and giving me so many happy memories, and thank you to Mark, Danni and Stefan for making my dream come true that night. - Mandy Mangham (Leeds, UK) (4/26/2009)

December 7: The first 20-minute opening was sooo exciting, sooo loud! Barry looked so happy and well. His voice is better than ever (how is that possible?) and best of all he sang my favourites, including "Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed," "Wild Places" and "I'm Comin' Back." I was in heaven! - Morag Burford (Worcs, UK) (5/15/2009)

December 6: I had discovered Barry again in about 2004. I had never seen him in concert and thought I never would as I could not imagine I would ever get to Las Vegas. So when he was coming to England last year I could not wait to get a ticket. I sat four rows from the front and he was absolutely amazing. I could not believe that I was actually seeing him in person. Since 2004 I have collected all his albums and quite honestly his is the only music I listen to. I think he and his music are just wonderful. Long may he reign! - Linda Sutton (Blackpool, Lancashire, England) (5/16/2009)

First Show (December 4): Although I have been a fan of Barry's music since the 1970's I had never been to a concert until December. My daughter-in-law, Tara, is a huge fan and her birthday is in December, so I booked tickets for us to go to the O2 and we had an amazing time. Tara said it was the best concert she had ever been to. Barry was fantastic, and we sang and shouted and cried along with 2000 other fans. - Denise and Tara (of London, England, UK) (6/24/2009)

December 6: [I loved] EVERYTHING!! I have followed Barry since I was 10. Love the MAN, Love the MUSIC! - Jackie Dobbs (of England) (7/6/2009)

December 6: I loved seeing Barry Live for the first time. It was one of the best times of my life! Love U Barry! - Eileen Hartley (Axbridge, Somerset, England) (11/22/2009)

[What I liked about the show was] EVERYTHING! Absolutely amazing!! - Elaine England (Hinkley, Leicestershire, England) (3/26/2011)

Ultimate Manilow: The Hits...and then some
Barry, the band, and crew will be taking the show "Ultimate Manilow: The Hits...and then some" to Manchester for one night only on Monday 8th December 2008 at the Manchester Evening News Arena!
I loved EVERYTHING about the concert. It was a "Time Stood Still" experience for me. Barry was absolutly fantastic, and although the concert was almost two hours, it seemed like five minutes to me. Can't wait to see Barry again. - Irene O'Neill (of Ireland) (12/12/2008)

I've been to many Barry concerts but this was the best by far. I was at the front and when he sang "The Best Seat In The House," it was fantastic! I will never forget that night. And when all the confetti came raining down on everyone, Barry stood and watched like he cherished every moment of his time with us. Thank you, Barry, for a fantastic night. One I will never forget! - Carmen (of Manchester, England) (12/28/2008)

This was my first Barry concert. I'm only 16 and didn't know what to expect. IT WAS MAGICAL! He is the greatest showman in the world, and the arrangements of his songs are stunning. They really make you realise how much of a great songwriter/musician he is. I loved it and would love to see Barry in concert again. It was just totally awesome. - Lauren Woods (Manchester, UK) (4/25/2009)

The Ultimate tour was amazing. The minute I heard Barry's voice, it took my breath away. The first few seconds as he came onto the stage was just so overwhelming. I loved the different mix of music from some of Barry's older songs right up o the newer ones. Then there's the way he moves... Totally sexy! You never want the concert to end. You feel like saying: One More Time, Barry, please! I hope there's just one more time that Barry brings his magic touch -- as only he can -- to the UK in 2010! Thank you, Barry!! - Alison Shaw (of the United Kingdom) (9/26/2009)

Oh my God, where do I start!? AWESOME is the only word that can describe Barry. I have loved him from the age of 14 and here we are 31 years later and I still love the guy! The tickets were a Christmas present from my hubby (I dragged him along too!!). We had front row seats. I was amazed at how close I had managed to get to Barry, my legs were like jelly. I have to admit when he sang "The Best Seat In The House," it literally reduced me to tears. I adore that song! Also, I loved the bit when Barry took us back to his childhood. I had a lump in my throat as big as a jaffa orange!! The memories of that concert will stay with me forever. I LOVE YOU, BARRY MANILOW! - Jayne Holloway (of the United Kingdom) (6/21/2010)

First night I got a front row ticket, right where the stage is. Barry came out after his introduction and shook my hand for the first time! I was SO thrilled to touch Barry's hand. Very memorable for me. And the new Ultimate Manilow: The Hits was awesome. Great show! It was fantastic... the stage and everything about his show.

December 20: I have never been disappointed by a Barry Manilow concert, they are always great! This one was special because my daughter and I braved the snow to fly out to the Manilow Holiday Bash. We had Fan Club seats in the 4th Row and I sat next to Gary Oye. As always, Barry was spectacular! - Grace Angelo (Mohegan Lake, NY) (7/4/2009)

I saw Barry with my husband on my 53rd birthday at the Las Vegas Hilton. - Thong Bartlett (Las Vegas, Nevada) (12/14/2011)

For the first time in my life, I left my own country with a single purpose: to see my favorite singer-songwriter. The flight was sixteen hours! I've admired Barry Manilow since 1973, and being someone who also loves music and social causes, I fell in love with this beautiful and unique human being. For this reason, I founded an NGO and the Latin Barry Manilow fan club, based in Campinas, São Paulo State, Brazil. - Maria José Comis Wagner (Campinas, São Paulo State, Brazil) (9/17/2011)
