The big voiced, big haired crooner behind Mandy will appear in ‘Manilow on Broadway,’ a new concert series that will begin a 17-performance engagement on January 18, 2013, at the St. James Theatre.

It is probably a safe bet that the evening of easy listening standards will include a lot of Manilow’s hits — a catalog that includes Could It Be Magic, I Write the Songs, Tryin’ To Get the Feeling Again, Looks Like We Made It and Copacabana (At the Copa).

“Growing up in New York, Broadway has always held a special place in my heart and I am honoured to have the opportunity to make the St. James Theatre my home in the New Year,” Manilow said in a statement.
