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.
Ultimate Manilow: The Hits - Final Show At The Hilton - December 30, 2009
This month’s MTV is a very emotional show. It’s the last night after five years at the Las Vegas Hilton. This night was the night before New Years’ Eve, so the crowd was great and we put together a show with loads of surprise songs and events.
After all, it we were saying goodbye to one of our f...
Live on Broadway - London Palladium - February 1990
This month’s MTV is a very different video.
Back in 1978, we were booked in London, England for the first time. The venue was the London Palladium and it was the beginning of a relationship with the British people that was surprising and glorious and has lasted to this day.
Paradise Tour - Radio City Music Hall - November 1, 1984
Come with me back, back, way back in time this month.
We go back to 1984!
I was really surprised to find that we even HAD a video of this show. But my wonderful assistant Marc was crunched down in the 10th row taping the show with a cheap home camera! And it’s a fine recordi...
