BARRY Manilow is to play two nights at London’s O2 Arena in December, it has been confirmed.

Manilow: An Evening of Music and Passion will be visiting the prestigious new concert venue on Thursday, December 4 and Saturday, December 6, 2008.

Tickets, which range from £70 to £40, go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 20.

News of Manilow’s rare UK dates complete a memorable period for fans of the artist, given that’s just been confirmed that Can’t Smile Without You, a new musical based on the songs of the American singer-songwriter, looks set for a transfer to the West End next year (2009) following an appearance in Bromley and a regional tour.

The musical, which has been endorsed by Manilow, features more than 30 of the singer-songwriter’s hits, which include the likes of I Write the Songs, Mandy, Looks Like We Made It, Can’t Smile Without You and Copacabana.
