Barry Manilow coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
He writes the songs that make the whole world sing. But if you want to see him in person, this might be your last chance.
Barry Manilow is returning to Amalie Arena in Tampa on Feb. 4, the venue announced Monday. The legendary singer-songwriter and icon of smooth '70s pop is billing this latest trek of dates his "One Last Time! Tour," exclamatory emphasis his, and from all indications, he's not kidding around.
"It's the last big tour," Manilow, 72, told Billboard earlier this year. "It doesn't mean I'm retiring or anything. I'll do shows and I'll promote albums if I make any more, but no more big tours. That's it. It's too much packing."
Best known for smashes like Mandy, Copacabana and Can't Smile Without You, Manilow last came to Tampa in 2011, and just as he did back then, he's keeping ticket prices down this time around. Cheap seats to his 2016 show start at just $19.75, fees included. They'll go on sale Tuesday.
