Barry Manilow Takes New York!
BARRY MANILOW writes the songs that make the whole world sing. On Tuesday night, he belted them out at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and only our KATHIE LEE GIFFORD was with the legendary performer just moments before he hit the stage! The show on Tuesday -- the first of three at the Garden -- come less than six months after Barry underwent hip surgery. "Are you in pain anymore?" Kathie Lee asks. "Because you don't look it." "I'm about 85 percent back," says Barry. "They tell me it takes about six months to come all the way back and I'm on my fifth month. So, come back in about a month and I'll be great."

The concert was a homecoming of sorts for Barry, who began his musical career in Brooklyn at the age of seven, where he learned to play on a neighbor's piano. Soon he was off to the New York College of Music and Juilliard in Manhattan. In New York, he met the young and outrageously talented BETTE MIDLER, who asked him to be her pianist and work on her Grammy-winning album, The Divine Miss M. But before you knew it, he broke out on his own, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Can't make it to his gig in the Big Apple? Not to worry. You can always catch him in his popular Sin City show, "Music and Passion," at the Las Vegas Hilton, which has been extended through 2007. And not only is Barry riding on the success of "Music and Passion," which is also available on DVD, but he scored big with two hugely successful albums in 2006 as well: The Greatest Songs of the Fifties and The Greatest Songs of the Sixties.

"So, would you say, in some ways, this has been the best year of your whole life?" asks Kathie Lee. "I think so, i think so," replies Barry with a smile. "I think it may have been the best year of my life, yeah."
Wednesday, January 17, 2007 Extra TV Tune in tonight!

Barry Manilow, who just kicked off his concert series at Madison Square Garden, had words of praise for his Season 3 friend and Golden Globe winner Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson: "I'm really proud of her. She's worth all the excitement". About appearing on American Idol, Barry said he'd love an encore: "If they would ask me, I would do it." (Extra TV)

(aired December 2007)

Waiting around in the rain wasn't much fun or waiting to get in the actual venue wasn't much fun either, but once we were seated, it got better. Turned out I got to sit down front with some ladies I had met while waiting in line! Manilow fans are the greatest. Don't you think, Barry? My favorite part was when Barry thought he was speaking into a microphone until he realized he was talking into his water bottle! Priceless Barry! I think I like the [acoustic] version of "Copacabana" better than the original. My favorite was Barry's rendition of "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother." The Greatest Songs of the Seventies is one of my favorites. - Gloria Marshall (Virginia Beach, Virginia) (9/20/2011)

It was a special night for my husband and me. This was the last time that he was able to travel (He passed away in May 2012). - Paula Collum (Tucson, Arizona) (2/25/2013)

Barry Manilow on Ice!

Barry provided live musical accompaniment for the "Brian Boitano Skating Spectacular Starring Musical Guest Barry Manilow" at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the home of the San Francisco GIANTS baseball team -- and now, for the first time ever, the site of an ice show. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the George Mark Children's House for kids who have serious or terminal illnesses. So, how did this whole event come together? "Brian Boitano's a friend, and so he called," explains Barry. "My new '70s album came out and he was crazy about it, and he said, 'Let's do a whole evening of '70s songs.' I loved it -- I said yes immediately."

Dorothy Hamill skates to Barry's "Weekend in New England," and Barry gushes, "She's just timeless -- she just never changes and she's so great at what she does, she's just amazing. Beautiful girl; beautiful inside too. Just great." Dorothy gushes right back, admitting, "I've been a 'Fanilow' forever -- even when it wasn't cool to be a Barry Manilow fan." She says "Weekend in New England" is her favorite Barry Manilow song, and she tells ET, "Every time I hear it I love it more. I think it's his best."

ET's All-Star Holiday Homecoming

Barry Manilow added a little holiday spirit with performances of "Jingle Bells" and "Winter Wonderland" from his third holiday album, "In the Swing of Christmas" exclusively available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores. "Comfort and joy... that's what Christmas albums should do. That's what my goal is for this one," Barry told ET. For Barry, music is the gift that keeps on giving. "I would look much different if I didn't have music all day and all night. I would be a very old guy with a pot belly, but this music just keeps me looking great. Don't I look great? (laughs) It's because of the music!"
