Barry Manilow received the "Best Strip Headliner" and "Best Bang for your Buck" awards from Las Vegas Weekly publisher Bruce Spotleson during Manilow's Saturday, May 29 performance at Paris Las Vegas.

The awards were voted upon by readers of the publication. Also on hand at the event was Manilow's backup singer, Kye Brackett.

Manilow began a two year engagement at the Paris in March of this year. His Broadway credits include his Tony Award-winning Barry Manilow on Broadway and Barry Manilow at the Gershwin. He also contributed songs to Bette Midler's Clams on the Half Shell Revue and The Madwoman of Central Park West. In the West End, his music was featured in Barry Manilow's Copacabana - The Musical, which went on to tour the U.S., Australia and Asia. To date, twenty-nine albums by Barry Manilow have been certified platinum, while three -- Barry Manilow/Live, Even Now, and Greatest Hits -- are each certified triple platinum.
