Nothing helps you get in the Christmas spirit like a concert packed with the season's most famous songs, and the iconic singer and songwriter Barry Manilow will treat fans to A Very Barry Christmas this holiday season.

Manilow will kick off the series of Christmas shows in early December in Florida, including performances in Miami, Orlando and Tampa. Tickets for the Tampa concert go on sale this Friday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m., while the other shows will follow next week on Friday, Sept. 14, all right here on AXS.

The singer is currently on tour in the UK, where he was recently granted an Honorary Fellowship from Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music.

"I tell you, something like this just inspires me to keep making make more and more and more music for you," Manilow said at the ceremony.

At the end of the month, he will return here to the States to continue his Las Vegas residency until it's time to hit the road. The residency was recently extended into 2019, with concerts scheduled from February through May.
