8:04am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
LEGENDARY singer songwriter Barry Manilow is set to perform in Hampshire after the artist announced a date in the county.
The first tickets for the sought-after show next May at the Ageas Bowl in West End were due to on sale this morning.
His UK tour will see him play London’s Wembley Arena and O2 Arena, the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Ipswich Town Football Club and Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena.
The 70-year-old, who hails from Brooklyn, New York City, has more than 50 top 40 hits to his name and boasts worldwide record sales of more than 80m.
Manilow has produced more than 40 albums over the course of his 50-year career and has been awarded countless awards, including a Grammy, two Emmys, a Tony Award and an Oscar nomination.
Five of his albums were on the best-selling chart simultaneously in America in 1978 – a feat equalled only by Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Mathis.
Sinatra himself gave Manilow his stamp of approval in the 1970s when he was quoted as saying “he’s next” regarding the singer.
He has worked with the likes of Bette Midler and Dionne Warwick, and written for musicals, films, and adverts.
From February 2005 to December 30, 2009, he was the headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, performing hundreds of shows.
Priority tickets for the show on May 24 next year will be on sale from 10am today. Tickets are available from eventim.co.uk.
