Barry Manilow Makes History at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino
Veteran singer Barry Manilow has shattered Elvis Presley’s long-standing record for the most shows performed at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. The iconic crooner, known for his unforgettable hits like “Mandy” and “Copacabana,” has had an illustrious career spanning over several decades.
Manilow marked his groundbreaking achievement during a series of charity shows when he played his 637th performance, surpassing the record held by the legendary Elvis Presley. As a token of appreciation for Manilow’s extraordinary accomplishment, he was presented with the key to the Las Vegas Strip.
The Vegas residency has undergone a transformation in recent years, drawing in younger and more vibrant performers. Renowned artists like U2, Usher, Adele, and Lady Gaga have also graced the stage in the famed entertainment capital.
However, it is the enduring appeal of Manilow’s music that continues to captivate audiences at Westgate. With his timeless tunes, the seasoned performer has managed to win the hearts of fans old and new alike. A testament to his lasting popularity, Manilow has expanded his already impressive run of shows with dates announced through 2024.
While Manilow may have conquered the record set by Presley, it is worth noting that the longest-ever Vegas residency belongs to Donny and Marie Osmond, who performed a staggering 1,730 shows. Such milestones not only highlight the enduring allure of Las Vegas as an entertainment hub but also underscore the incredible talents of the artists who have left an indelible mark on the city’s history.
With his record-breaking feat, Barry Manilow has solidified his place among the legends of Las Vegas. As he continues to grace the stage at Westgate, fans can expect to be treated to a truly unforgettable experience, filled with his greatest hits and a remarkable journey through the annals of music history.
