Tour announcement coincides with 40th anniversary of Manilow’s mega hit ‘Mandy’
Barry Manilow has announced that he is going to “hit the road” and perform concerts across the world ONE LAST TIME! The music legend launched his multi-city ONE LAST TIME! Tour earlier this year in North America and is now headed to the UK reaching Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena on Sunday 12th June 2016.
With his band of 13 musicians and singers, Manilow said, “We had a great time putting the show together. We hope to take everyone on an emotional roller coaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”
After performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011, Manilow has limited his concert appearances. The ONE LAST TIME! Tour is a major undertaking and as Manilow said, “is my way of thanking everyone for their years of support…one last time!”
The GRAMMY®, TONY®, and EMMY® Award-winning musician’s career skyrocketed to superstardom when his mega hit song, “Mandy,” topped the charts in 1975. In the spirit of that special year, tickets will be priced to tie into that year and will start at £19.75. Manilow insisted that the average ticket price remain low and that a greater range of ticket prices be available.
Platinum-selling and nine time Grammy ® nominated saxophonist Dave Koz has been announced as special guest for the UK dates of Barry Manilow’s One Last Time! tour this summer.
Koz will open for Barry on the tour which arrives in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena on the Sunday 12th June 2016.
Koz, who has previously performed with such superstars as Burt Bacharach, Kenny Loggins, U2, Luther Vandross and Rod Stewart, is no stranger to the UK, having previously opened for the likes of Liza Minelli at the Royal Albert Hall, and also supporting Barry on his last tour of the UK back in 2014.
With nine No.1 albums on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Album chart, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and his own long running and award winning Dave Koz Radio Show, Dave will bring his broad Jazz repertoire to UK audiences on the One Last Time! Tour, with singles such as “Got To Get You Into My Life”, “Faces of the Heart”, “Honey Dipped” and ”Let It Go.” Koz’s soaring instrumental version of the latter – a song from the Disney film Frozen – appears on his latest album, Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection (Concord Records).
On being invited back by Barry for his One Last Time! Tour, Koz said: “I am so thrilled and honored to be heading back out on the road with my dear friend and mentor, Barry Manilow. He is truly a master performer and the show is so much fun.”
