Price is right as Barry Manilow announces concert in Leeds

Have your say

He writes the songs that make the whole world sing – and now Barry Manilow is set to perform them in Leeds.

Manilow today revealed that he will be playing the city’s First Direct Arena on June 11 next year as part of what he says is his final major concert tour.

And, in a nostalgic nod to 1975 – the year when he topped the charts with hit song Mandy – ticket prices for the gig will start at £19.75.

The Leeds concert is one of seven UK dates announced by Manilow and, looking ahead to them, he said: “We had a great time putting the show together.

“We hope to take everyone on an emotional rollercoaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”

Tickets for the Leeds gig go on sale at 9am next Monday, October 5.
