Barry Manilow will perform at the 02 Arena in London, ENG on December 4 and 6 with tickets going on sale June 14. After hundreds of sold out performances at The Las Vegas Hilton in since opening in 2005, “Ultimate Manilow: The Hits … and then some” will finally make it across the Atlantic Ocean.
Danny Betesh and Andrew Miller, Manilow’s UK concert promoters since 1978, report that they have never experienced such demand.
“It’s impossible to make an outgoing call,” Miller said in a statement, “as my telephone has yet to stop ringing from friends calling for tickets.”
Manilow will bring a new, tailor-made show to England.
“The British public and I have had a long standing love affair for over 30 years,” added Manilow. “There is no audience for me like the people who party with me at a concert in the UK. I am creating a show that I can only do in Britain. If I tried to do the show I’m putting together for the December concerts anywhere else in the world, the audiences would think I was nuts! But my British fans and I know better. We’ll have a ball!”
