Barry Manilow coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa

The way things are going, Barry Manilow might just tour forever. Especially around the holidays.

The soft-pop king has announced plans for a new holiday tour that'll hit Tampa's Amalie Arena on Dec. 7. Tickets start at just $16 — $16! — and go on sale Sept. 7. Click here for details.

We thought a couple of years ago that Manilow's last appearance at Amalie Arena might be, well, his last. But as he told us at the time: "Come back in two years, and who knows?"

The Christmas tour should spark a little life into his performance (not that he was ever lagging). He's released a handful of holiday albums over the years, most recently 2007's In the Swing of Christmas. He's sure to play a few classic crowd-pleasers, too, like Mandy and Looks Like We Made It.

Even if you're not a big fan, $16 is a heck of a price tag for an early stocking stuffer. Besides, you never know, maybe THIS will be your last chance to see Manilow in Tampa.
