Celebrated music legend signs two-year deal with Paris Las Vegas and AEG Live

Dec. 1, 2009 (LAS VEGAS) – Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow is making music and magic at Paris Las Vegas with a new resident show. On March 5, 2010 Manilow will throw open the doors to the Paris Théâtre at Paris Las Vegas with a reimagined stage show that will be both more intimate and more exciting than ever before.

Manilow will perform 78 shows each year for two years at Paris Las Vegas. The shows are produced by AEG Live in conjunction with Paris Las Vegas. Tickets for performances March 5 through July 18, 2010 are on-sale today at 9 a.m. EST.

Directed by renowned stage and film choreographer and director Jeffrey Hornaday (Flashdance, A Chorus Line, High School Musical), this new show will cast Manilow’s hits in a new light in the intimate and elegant 1,500 seat Paris Théâtre. Including all the songs that have made him a pop culture icon over the past 35 years, the show will bring the energy, sincerity and melody of Manilow at his best to a spectacular yet personal crescendo.

“The audience in Vegas is always energized and electric, so I know that the Paris Las Vegas is going to be a special run,” said Manilow. “I’m planning something new for this performance; definitely not to be missed.”

With worldwide record sales exceeding 80 million, Barry Manilow is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, according to R&R (Radio & Records); with no less than 25 consecutive top 40 hits to his credit between 1975 and 1983, on the Billboard Hot 100. Manilow has worked on over 40 albums over the course of his career as a singer, songwriter, arranger and producer. He recently released “In the Swing of Christmas” his third collection of holiday songs and will release “The Greatest Love Songs of All Time,” a new album chronicling the most touching love songs ever written on Jan. 26, 2010.

“Barry Manilow is an icon to generations of adoring fans, “said John Meglen, co-CEO and President of AEG Live/Concerts West. “AEG Live is privileged to be working with him to bring this new and exciting musical production to the stage in Las Vegas.”

“At Paris Las Vegas, romance blends with excitement and energy, so it’s only fitting that Barry Manilow reignite our entertainment offerings,” said Marilyn Winn, President of Paris Las Vegas. “We invite all of our guests to spend a dynamic evening with Barry Manilow at Paris Las Vegas.”
