There’ll be sing-alongs, schmaltz, romance and plenty of tears as Barry Manilow returns to The O2 – for the last time.

The 72-year-old singer is hitting the road for one final hurrah before hanging up his sequinned touring jacket for good.

After performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011, the Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award winner has had enough of travelling the world so will no longer be doing big concert series.

With his band of 13 musicians and singers, the legendary singer said: “We had a great time putting the show together. We hope to take everyone on an emotional roller coaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”

His gig in north Greenwich will be the last stop on his One Last Time tour and his adoring “fanilows” are sure to turn out in their droves to raise their lighters and join in renditions of Mandy, Can’t Smile Without You, Could It Be Magic, and Copacabana.

He said: “It’s my way of thanking everyone for their years of support…one last time!”

Thursday, June 23, from £19.75, The O2 Arena
