He writes the songs that make the whole world sing, and this fall, Barry Manilow will bring those songs to Philly.
Manilow, 74, is scheduled to play the Wells Fargo Center on Sept. 15 as part of a tour in support of his latest album This is My Town: Songs of New York. According to a release, Manilow will play hits including “Copacabana” and “Mandy” as part of his set on the tour.
Released in April, This is my Town features original tracks mixed with covers of songs celebrating New York City, Manilow’s hometown. The album also features performances from New York-oriented musicians including Billy Joel, Leonard Bernstein, and Alicia Keys.
Tickets for the Wells Fargo Center date go on sale to the general public starting July 14 at 10 a.m. via the Wells Fargo Center website and box office, as well as Manilow’s official website. According to the Wells Fargo Center site, tickets will run between $19.75 and $249.75.
Manilow made headlines earlier this year when he came out, saying he waited to reveal his sexuality because he didn’t want to “disappoint” fans.
