Barry Manilow’s loyal fans, known as “Fanilows,” have something to cheer about.

The legendary singer will keep crooning at the Las Vegas Hilton through 2008, the hotel announced Sunday.

“The shows at the Hilton are the most exciting shows I’ve ever done,” Manilow said in a release. “The stage is huge, but the theater is intimate, so we can have a magnificent production and still connect with the audience.”

Manilow opened his “Music and Passion” show at the Hilton in February 2005 after his “One Night Live! One Last Time!” tour in 2004 was thought to signal the end of his concert career.

But the artist got a boost when his “The Greatest Songs of the Fifties,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart on Jan. 31 and then went platinum, selling over a million copies.

Manilow’s four-nights a week show changes nightly and features a cast of 14 in a 1,700-seat theater. Tickets cost from $95 to $225.
