Barry Manilow to perform ‘One Last Time’ at Bryce Jordan Center

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Music legend Barry Manilow will perform at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 12, as part of his multi-city “One Last Time!” tour.

Manilow has limited his appearances in recent years after performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011. However, in what Manilow said is his way of “thanking everyone for their years of support,” the Grammy, Tony and Emmy award winner is taking his show on the road for one final tour.

Manilow’s career took off in 1975 when he topped the charts with "Mandy." In the spirit of that special year, ticket prices for Manilow’s University Park appearance will start at $19.75. Manilow insisted that the average ticket price remain low and that a greater range of ticket prices be available to fans.

“We’re having a great time putting the show together,” Manilow said. “We hope to take everyone on an emotional roller coaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 10 and can be purchased at the Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre Centre, or 800-745-3000.

As part of his visit to central Pennsylvania, Manilow will bring his Manilow Music Project to the Bald Eagle Area School District in Wingate. The music icon plans to donate a Yamaha piano to the school district to launch a local musical instrument drive. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument the week prior to the show date will receive two free tickets, valid for pre-selected seat locations on a first-come, first-serve basis, for Manilow’s March 12 show.

The Manilow Music Project has conducted musical instrument drives all over the country to assist local schools with their music programs.

“I’m thrilled to once again bring the gift of music to these kids,” Manilow said.

The Jordan Center box office will be the drop-off point for the instrument drive from March 4-12. Instruments may be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and beginning at noon on the day of the concert.
