Barry Manilow Spreads Lotsa Love in New Las Vegas Digs

Barry Manilow believes that a good love song never goes out of style.  He believes it so much that he has now released an album dedicated to the idea.  “The Greatest Love Songs of All Time”, released January 2010, contains 15 classic love songs including “Fools Rush In” and “How Deep Is the Ocean.”  And the 63-year-old singer will be bringing these songs and more to his two-year run at the Paris Las Vegas hotel-casino starting Friday, March 5. 

“I’m actually going to focus on the fact that we are in the most romantic world called Paris,” a gushing Manilow said. “Since I sing such romantic songs, I thought that would be a really good place to do something like this.” 

Manilow hopes his new Las Vegas show will receive the same response as his prior Hilton show.  The Las Vegas Hilton performances were primarily collections of his greatest hits. However, fans need not worry, he plans to incorporate those long-time favorites into his new Paris show as well. 

Tickets start at $95 and can be purchased at parislasvegas.com; 800-745-3000.
