Manilow Fans Fill Downtown
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Now 70, Barry Manilow has a track record that has brought together generations of fans. Yet the presence of this musical icon also brought together a large crowd to experience downtown Cedar Rapids in the summer.
Manilow played Cedar Rapids for the first time in 17 years on Saturday, with his evening appearance at the renovated U.S. Cellular Center.
It was three weeks ago when Lady Antebellum was the major musical act for the arena's opening weekend.
TV-9's Chris Earl takes in the buzz before Manilow's show as well as a glimpse of the performance.
