Description: Singer-songwriter Barry Manilow will return to Radio City Music Hall in New York City and perform three shows, February 10, 11, and 12, 2012. The announcement of these special concerts coincides with the release of 15 MINUTES, Manilow's first original album in 10 years and will be in stores on June 14. Tickets are on sale now! After having recorded six critically acclaimed albums of songs written by the greatest songwriters of all time - from Gershwin to Bacharach, as well as two Platinum Christmas albums-- Barry Manilow returns at last to his true passion: songwriting. Inspired by the Andy Warhol quote, "In the future, everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes," this exciting guitar-driven pop album explores the perils and pinnacles of fame's double-edged sword. 15 MINUTES is a compilation of 16 original tracks written by Manilow and lyricist Enoch Anderson. Making a guest appearance on 15 MINUTES is young Nataly Dawn, lead singer of the white-hot group, Pomplamoose. Her rendition of "Letter From A Fan" is both innocent and eerie.
