Jeannie, I did a search on him and found a YouTube of Frank singing a couple of Barry's tunes.Not bad I'd like to catch Frank's show,I think it would be fun.You know watching the other fans interacting with "Barry", you get a glimpse of how it is for BARRY at times.Everyone wanting your time.

Barry and Gary..you have to admit the the two of them make a very good and strong couple. It's just to bad Barry is in "the business" otherwise I think the two of them would have married years ago.

Jeannie I'm still hearing Harrah's as Barry's next venue. Am I confused or isn't Harrah's one of the casinos that the "rat pack" used to frequent.

As long as Barry is still playing there, I don't really care where it is! I can't wait!

The Rat Pack performed at the Sands, tho, which was destroyed to make way for the Venitian hotel. To bad, I thought the Sands was one of Vegas' icon hotels and they should of just had it restored or upgraded - sad.

Yes, I was hoping that would of been considered a historic building, but I guess not. And, sadly, as they say, money makes the world go round, right?

Rumor has it to expect an announcement from Barry's camp sometime this week. Barry's Paris show is off til Oct.so this would be a good time for Barry to let us know. I hope he is in Vegas,you've been waiting so long to go.

i HAVE to put this topic to rest:BARRY MANILOW IS NOT GAY.here's how i know:barry manilow's lyricist enoch anderson IS VERY CLOSE TO HIM.HE'S KNOWN HIM SINCE BEFORE 1974.enoch anderson knows barry manilow so well that HE WRITES SONGS TAYLOR MADE FOR BARRY MANILOW.you can speak to enoch anderson.he's on facebook.according to enoch anderson BARRY MANILOW ISN'T GAY. and enoch anderson AUGHTA KNOW. plus,if barry manilow were gay a gay male would have outed him to the press by now.WITH PROOF.it's 2011 AND THIS STILL HASN'T HAPPENED.barry manilow isn't gay but HE IS NARCISSISTIC.

If you can put a lid on this topic Barry should give you a prize. Never did understand why it matters to so many. I just want to know were Barry will be in Vegas next year.

to put this argument to rest:it's 2011 and STILL no gay male has gone to the press or online with any PROOF that barry manilow's gay.it's difficult to believe that any gay male who may have ever been involved with barry manilow would remain silent BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS.IT'S ALSO DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE THAT BARRY MANILOW'S PAYING OFF ALL THOSE PEOPLE TO SHUT THEM UP.however,there's LOTS of proof that barry manilow's straight.barry manilow has used SEVERAL females for sex in his lifetime.here are their names: susan deixler,linda allen,melissa manchester,reparata lorraine mazzola,(there are more).barry manilow has NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER.HE'S NOT GAY.

Yes, he must be narcissitic to stand the star being about the years. But a disorder?? My personal opinion is: he is gay (look at his moves and his speech) but is doesn't matter. It is sad that that he cannot handle quite normally with it. But that doesn't matter for us fans too. Everything what counts is his talent and his warmhearted charisma. With whom he sleeps, should not be important for us

I dispute the gay theory after seeing him out today in Vegas with his obvious lady friend. You could tell how much he adores her. Good for him, but I admit I was in shock. I must eat my crow now, because I was always the first to say he was gay.

I don't know who it was you've seen with Barry but it probably was Keely, his back-up singer, I'm sure he adores her and yes she's his lady friend but definitely not his girlfriend.

It was not Keely. I know who she is. This lady is on the chunky side, but very pretty. Her hair was just medium, not long or short. She also wore glasses and was definitely younger than Barry. Not as young as Keely though. Everyone around seemed to love her. It was not anyone ever seen in pictures with him. His security seemed more protective of her than Barry.

This lady has sandy blonde hair and the length was to her shoulders with bangs. She is short and just adorable. Her age was maybe mid 40's?

Oh I do wish these sorts of threads did not appear all over the place.

Barry Manilow's private life should remain just that, and he obviously goes all out to keep that it way.

I could not careless what his sexual orientation is, surely all that matters is the beautiful music he has produced for his fans over the years, and continues to do so.

He has a natural charm, is extremely personable, and very very sexy, that is how I feel about him.

I am going through a very difficult time just now with a life threatening illness, and listening to his music lifts my spirits immensely.

My life is immeasurably better for having Barry's music present, particularly now.

Barry just keep doing what you do lovely man. You are loved by so many, and you know in the UK, that love is unwavering.

Jeannie-I'm sooo sorry Barry is leaving Vegas before you get to go.Maybe you can add a few pennies and go to the Hollywood Bowl. My gut tells me Barry is going into a semi-retirement. God knows it's well deserved.I hope I can see him again,but I'm doubtful. I think I'll write Barry and thank him for all those wonderful memories.

Hi Deby -- is he leaving? I must be too disconnected from the mainstream since I haven't heard about that. So ... he won't be going to another hotel in Vegas then? Oh, so sad.
He does deserve retirement - at least part-time. Here's to hoping there will be some appearances in the future.

Karen -- Best wishes to you -- I hope you keep strong and beat your illness! Keep listening to Barry and keep your spirits high. Sending healing vibes to you!
