At the start of his career in 1975, Barry Manilow reached the number 6 position on the Billboard charts with his single that asked the question “Could It Be Magic”? On March 14, 2008 the showman received a resounding “Yes!” for an answer as balloons, champagne and a cake waited for the multi-platinum performer at Tempo Lounge following his 300th sold out show at the Las Vegas Hilton. Fans have a chance to sing along with all their favorite Manilow melodies at the Hilton Theater through the end of 2008.
CAPTION: HAVING HIS CAKE — Superstar Barry Manilow cuts the cake celebrating his 300th show at the Las Vegas Hilton Friday night. Two carbon arc searchlights lit up the sky around the property, and champagne flowed for Manilow and his singers, dancers and band in an after-show party in the Hilton’s Tempo Lounge. The wording on the cake: “Barry, because of your talent, 300 shows is a piece of cake.” The superstar opened “Manilow: Music and Passion” at the Las Vegas Hilton on February 23, 2005. He will be performing at the Las Vegas Hilton through 2008. (PRNewsFoto/Las Vegas Hilton)
