Following in the footsteps of Celine Dion and Elton John (no, this isn't the story you've been waiting for, but it's coming, I promise), Barry Manilow has sealed a deal to perform at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino five nights a week for 24 weeks (into '06). The 61-year-old's 90-minute extravaganza Manilow: Music and Passion will kick off on Feb. 25, at which point mini-Manilow Clay Aiken will see a clearer picture of his twilight years than ever before.
