Barry Manilow coming to the St. Pete Times Forum
Barry Manilow is in fact coming to Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum on Jan. 21, according to Ticketmaster. (No official confirmation from the venue just yet, but Ticketmaster and the Forum tend to work pretty closely with one another.) Tickets are $15.54 (!) to $144.64, and they go onsale Oct. 2, so you really have no excuse not to see him in concert.
Now, let's start a massive flame war: Who's the better American songwriter, Bob Dylan or Barry Manilow? Remember: Barry writes the songs that the whole world sings. BOOM, IT'S ON.
