Meltdown in Manilowland

It's finally happened...the fans are in meltdown mode. Rumors are flying about Barry leaving the Hilton. On top of that he's canceled shows, "rescheduled" arena concerts, and FINALLY canceled the Platinums from last June. You would think the world was coming to an end. And while the s**t is hitting the fan, the administrators are busy deleting posts and negative comments.

Gotta love the censored world of Manilow. What is also amazing is the people who believed Barry could do no wrong are now on the receiving end of the wrong doing and not too happy about it. It's funny how your perspective changes when you're the one getting the mistreatment.

My personal favorite: send out a Hotline about all the "great" projects coming up and then send out one the next day about cancellations. FYI Stiletto...while you may think fans are Maniloonies, we are NOT idiots. We are on to your so called ploys to pacify the bad news with good. Eventually, you'll cross that line, as you have with so many, and lose all of our business. But, I guess you're motto is: there's a sucker born every minute. And perhaps you are right.

One thing is for certain--things are NEVER dull in Manilowland!

Eyes wide open,
Texas Fan

You are so right. It is going to be interesting to see how the rest of the year plays out. I just hope if the end has already occurred, just let me know so I can get my money back now and make plans for shows that I know will go on regardless. Lion King - will go on even if an understudy has to do it. Phantom - same thing. The show will go on! Which is something I would have to get used to since I have been cancelled enough times with Manilow.

Yeah, and I've got this feeling there's more coming from this dustup.

As for the purging of posts on MMN and the BNet board, they can't delete discussions from

The basically "purge proof" old newsgroup has been around since 1994, and it's still standin'.
