Manilow Beats Buble and Cliff to's Concert Crown

Monday, October 18, 2010

AYLESFORD, England, October 19, 2010 -'s latest concert revenue figures show that Barry Manilow is
set to outstrip the likes of super-smooth Michael Bublé, Daniel O'Donnell and
even Brit legend Cliff Richard in terms of concert package sales to date.

The coach holidays specialist ( consolidator
website has reported that currently gross sales for the American
singer-songwriter, who is performing at the 02 arena in London for 4 nights
next May, are just a whisker behind those for Cliff's 'Bold As Brass' 70th
celebration tour, with Manilow just 1.5% away from becoming the company's all
time top of the pops.

Hotel and concert breaks for Manilow went on sale in July, and with an
extra date now confirmed for 7th May it's likely that Barry will take the
crown as the company's most popular concert act ever. Cliff, whose breaks
were on sale for six months between March and September, is expected to come
a close second, followed by Michael Bublé (19% of concert sales) and popular
Irish crooner Daniel O'Donnell (15%), who performs on 5th Dec in Birmingham.

The news is likely to go down well with avid Fanilows, whose idol has
sold over 80 million records worldwide, won countless music awards and was
revered by Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan alike.

Kate Glanfield, web manager of, said: "Event fever is up at
the moment with event sales for 2011 already up 33% on last year, but thanks
to the return of a few big acts on the concert scene, we're even giving our
Christmas Market sales a run for their money at this time of year."

The company anticipates that its recently released concert breaks to
English blues-rock guitarist Eric Clapton, who is performing at the iconic
Royal Albert Hall next May, will prove just as popular if not more successful
than Manilow.

Kate concluded: "It's been a great couple of years for concerts and based
on the music packages we've got lined up, and other acts that we know will be
touring soon, who stays holding the record could be a very different story
next year."

Tickets for 6th May have now sold out, but Fanilows can still catch the
man himself at the 02 on 7th May with a 'Make Your Own Way' break from
