Hi Everyone. Barry here.
Since the days of going on those long tours are coming to a close, I thought this might be a good time to remind you all about ManilowTV.
I think many of you know that ever since I started performing I have hit the “record” button; be it audio or video. Recordings of every show I’ve ever done are in a big vault. (Right next to my baby shoes and the Copacabana jacket!).
All of these recordings were meant only for reference and archival purposes. I would look at the shows each night after a concert, make notes, and give them to the staff so that we could tighten the show or change things.
But watching them brings back so many great memories! I know you will enjoy seeing them.
That’s what ManilowTV is all about.
Each month for the past ten years, Marc and I have looked through hundreds of video tapes and DVD’s and picked a performance that we think you would enjoy and have shown it on ManilowTV. So far, there are 120 different shows.
Even though the shows were recorded on one camera and the video and audio is not professional network quality, I think they are very exciting. I think you will too.
We post a new concert every month. These shows bring back such great memories. Big laughs, some tears and such talent! Lady Flash! Big bands, small bands, choirs! England! Germany! Australia! Japan! So many American cities!
You’ll see it all on ManilowTV.
I hope you check it out.
And keep the Kleenex nearby.
Here’s an entertaining show from the Las Vegas Hilton in 2009. We’d been there for five years and changed the name from “Music and Passion” to “Ultimate Manilow” because of the success of the Greatest Hits CD.
We even re-did the opening film. Very exciting opening.
This month’s episode is another one of those fantastic BBC music specials. I wish they would do that kind of special on American television. But they still do music specials in England and I’m so grateful that they’ve asked me to perform on...
This month’s Manilow TV is a rare find, indeed. The Sheba Foundation, a non-profit organization in Israel supporting the Ethiopian Jewish community of Israel, chose to honor me for their yearly dinner in 1999.
It was definitely an honor and a wonderful evening.
The Greatest Hits and Then Some - Manila, Philippines - November 5, 1992
This month’s Manilow TV is another real rare one.
We only played The Philippines once in my entire career and it was a once in a lifetime experience for me.
The audiences in Manila and Cebu were beyond my wildest expectations. 50,000 people filled up each of the arena shows there.
