The showman will return to Leeds this summer and thanks to JLife, you could be there too… One lucky reader will win two tickets for Barry Manilow at first direct arena!

Following his headline sold out performance at the BBC Proms in the Park in London and 17 ‘sold out’ concerts on Broadway, “the showman of our generation” (Rolling Stone) Barry Manilow has announced that he will return to the UK in 2020 for a limited number of arena concerts, stopping off at Leeds’ own first direct arena on 6th June.

The GRAMMY®, TONY®, and EMMY® winning musician’s career skyrocketed to superstardom when his mega hit song, ‘Mandy’ topped the charts in 1975 to begin an
unparalleled career encompassing virtually every area of music, including performing, composing, arranging and producing. A Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and worldwide record sales exceeding 85 million, Barry Manilow is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time with over 50 Top 40 hits including 12 number ones and 27 Top 10 Hits.

Manilow’s swift return to Leeds is just one of many blockbuster shows heading to the first direct arena this year. Artists are lining up to perform, with legends including The Who, Snoop Dogg, Diana Ross, Deep Purple, Simply Red and Elton John heading to the city in 2020. They’ll also be joined by the likes of Gregory Porter, Dua Lipa, Rick Astley, Stormzy, McFly and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to name but a few.
