Barry Manilow is getting ready to hang up his touring microphone. The “Copacabana” singer has announced his final eight concerts in the United States this summer, with the final one being in Milwaukee on August 3. The news comes after Manilow broke a record previously set by Elvis Presley for the most shows at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. He performed his 637th show there in September, after performing in Las Vegas for the last 15 years.

Manilow previously shared about the end of his major touring days, “It doesn’t mean I’m retiring or anything. I’ll do shows and I’ll promote albums if I make any more, but no more big tours. That’s it. It’s too much packing. It’s 40 years — more than that, really — of packing and waiting for room service.” Manilow is turning 81 years old this year and is hoping to settle down more and spend time with his longtime husband Garry Kief, his daughter, and his new grandkid.

This summer, he will be heading to several Midwest states including Illinois, Minnesota, and Nebraska, hoping to entertain fans live one more time. Prior to these dates, Manilow will be performing in the U.K. Then, he will be taking a break for his birthday, on June 17th to celebrate all that he has accomplished over the years. Purchase tickets on Manilow’s website and be sure to grab yours before they all sell out! Are you planning to head to one of his final shows?
