Multi-million selling singer Barry Manilow has confirmed he is playing in Ipswich next year at Portman Road.

The seventy-year-old superstar songwriter will play in Suffolk as part of an eight-date May tour which will culminate with a headline slot at London’s O2.

The last time Ipswich Town hosted a gig was in 2010 when pop star Pink played her hits.

Previous big-names to have played on the pitch include Elton John, REM and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Manilow will play Ipswich on Friday, May 16.
