Barry Manilow
Thursday at the Sprint Center
Although Barry Manilow is 71, he still possesses the cheerful exuberance of the young man who initially dazzled the world with a string of sunny pop songs in the 1970s. Released in 1978, Manilow’s first greatest hits album contained gems like “Mandy,” “Looks Like We Made It” and “I Write the Songs.” The latter composition, a ditty about creating a “worldwide symphony,” is Manilow’s statement of purpose. Manilow has pledged that his current One Last Time tour is his final arena campaign. Smooth jazz saxophonist Dave Koz opens the show.
7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12. Sprint Center. 816-949-7000. sprintcenter.com. $19.75-$129.75.
