I had a wonderful time seeing, for the first time, Barry Manilow perform live at The Staples Center .
My friends and I got great tickets via the Groupon Website.
We got a nice discount on our tickets, and were very happy with our seats.
Barry Manilow gave a wonderful performance. He sang all his famous hits – even a melody of some. Full versions of his most famous “Mandy”, “Could It Be Magic” and “Copa Cabana”. His stage show was really fun, and we had a great time.
We arrived at LA Live , about 2 hours before the show and the restaurants were already packed to capacity. There was an hour wait at most. So we walked across Figueroa Street to the Lux Hotel, and ate at the The Nixon Bar and Lounge.
There were plenty of tables and fast service. I had a Shrimp Fettuccini which was really good. This is the third time I have been to the Nixon Bar, and they always have great food. So if you are seeing a show at the Staples Center, I recommend walking across the street to The Nixon Bar and Lounge.
