Barry Manilow To Play Bryce Jordan Center On March 12

Grammy winner and smooth-singing Barry Manilow announced he will play a show at the Bryce Jordan Center on March 12 as part of his One Last Time tour, a tour which he said will be his last in North America. Tickets for the show go on sale Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, and Penn State Downtown Theatre, as well as online and over the phone.

Manilow, known for his smooth sounds and songs such as “Mandy” and “Copacabana,” brings with him a group of 13 singers and musicians to support him during the show. According to, Manilow has graced the BJC twice before with his presence, the last time coming just after the turn of the millennium in 2000.

Penn State is one of three Pennsylvania stops for the singer, who will also make stops in Wilkes-Barre and Hershey on his tour. Tickets will start at just $19.75, an homage to 1975, the year that Manilow released his hit song “Mandy,” and shot up the charts.
