Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert
Barry Manilow hosts "Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert"

Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert is a concert that never actually took place - though we wish it had and that we had been there. Compiled from recordings of some of his best live performances with the great musicians of the day, here are his classic songs from Witchcraft to My Way. This is Sinatra at his best - live.

Barry Manilow (no stranger to the world's biggest stages) guides us through this unique experience of artistry in music and sketches-in some of the background to Sinatra on the road.

With the cream of performances from New York, New Jersey, Dallas, Detroit, Japan and of course Las Vegas, the city he made his own and where he performed many hundreds of times at The Sands, Caesars Palace and The Golden Nugget, Sinatra was always accompanied by the finest musicians, including Count Basie and his Orchestra, Woody Herman and his long-time pianist and conductor Bill Miller.

Sinatra performed live around 2000 times not just at home but also around the world in South America, Scandinavia, Europe and even Iran and of course here in the UK with about 100 concerts. Of the thousands of performances he gave, few were captured on record (or on film) so we have made one specially for Radio 2 listeners - and it is longer and better than anything ever previously released. It is a unique performance for all singers and fans to sit back and relish. Simply this is Sinatra at his best - live!

Barry Manilow on WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio!

Barry Manilow On Slowing Down & Playing His Last Show in Milwaukee: There was a time – in the late 1970s and 1980s – when Barry Manilow’s music was ubiquitous. You’d hear it on Top 40 radio, on your TV, in your dentist’s office. Songs like Mandy and Copacabana, and I Write the Songs. Barry Manilow doesn’t chart the same way he once did, but he still has millions of loyal fans, and a new album, called My Dream Duets. Although he’s still producing music, Barry Manilow has decided to slow down, now that he’s [71] years old. He says his current concert tour – which stops at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Tuesday – will be his last. Ahead of that Milwaukee stop, Lake Effect's Bonnie North reached Barry Manilow by phone.

Barry Manilow Talks About His Final Tour

ABC 4 Utah: Barry Manilow is one of popular music's most recognizable voices, a master artist behind some of the best american standards of the last 40 years. He has sold 80 million records, been inducted into the songwriters hall of fame, and won about every major award in the entertainment space including the Emmy, the Tony, Grammy, an Oscar nominee. Manilow has even won a Cleo. He is also a great producer and arranger. Now, the legendary star is about to embark on one last adventure -- his final tour. This year marks the 40th anniversary of his number one hit "Mandy." "Mandy" was brought to Manilow by Clive Davis. Barry originally didn't want to record it because he did not write it, but the song put him on the map. His portfolio sports many platinum records, including "2:00 AM Paradise Cafe," which is one of the hidden classic albums of the last 30 plus years. Manilow’s most recognizable song is probably "Copacabana," which he co-wrote and has become a pop culture touchstone having spanned three generations. Barry will be performing in Salt Lake City at the [Maverik] Center on April 20th.

ON APRIL 24, 2015

Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning international superstar Barry Manilow will wow guests with a concert at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County’s 9th Anniversary Gala on April 24, 2015 with a special tribute to Frank Sinatra in honor of Frank’s 100th birthday. For the Arsht Center’s annual celebration, the Center will transform the Ziff Ballet Opera House into an intimate “supper club” with cocktails, dinner, and dancing directly on the Lynn Wolfson Stage.

“In what has become an annual tradition to welcome world-class talent to the Arsht Center’s state-of-the-art stages for our Anniversary Gala, guests this year will enjoy a performance by the legendary Barry Manilow,” said Swanee DiMare, chair of the Gala for the third year in a row along with her husband Paul DiMare. “As an avid supporter of arts education, Mr. Manilow is the perfect choice to grace the stage, as all the money raised by the Gala will be reinvested into the Arsht Center’s robust educational programming.”
