As part of the show, the Radio City Rockettes presented Manilow with a custom plaque commemorating his incredible achievement. Barry Manilow first played the iconic venue on October 30, 1984. In May 2023, he began his ongoing show residency at the venue, performing five sold-out shows from May 31 to June 4, 2023, and five additional sold-out shows from April 17-21, 2024. Due to overwhelming demand, Manilow recently announced he will continue his residency with five additional consecutive nights from October 9-13, 2024, marking his 44-48 lifetime performances at the venue and bringing the ongoing residency total to 15 shows.

Barry Manilow is a GRAMMY, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning music icon whose success is a benchmark in popular music. Having sold more than 85 million records worldwide, he is one of the all-time best-selling recording artists. The multi-award-winning musician has had an astonishing 51 Top 40 singles, including 12 number-one hits and 27 Top 10 hits. Some of these hits include “Mandy,” “I Write the Songs,” “Looks Like We Made It,” “Can’t Smile Without You,” and “Copacabana (At the Copa).”

“Radio City Music Hall is one of the greatest venues in the world,” said Barry Manilow. “What a thrill and an honor to receive this distinction.”

For nearly a century, Radio City Music Hall has been home to world’s biggest artists. We are pleased to celebrate Barry Manilow, a native New Yorker and one of the greatest performers of all time, and look forward to welcoming him back for more record-setting shows this October.
