Make sure you...
Tuesday 13 January 1998
know ... your Barry Manilow back catalogue. The olfactively gifted crooner is setting off on a UK tour, and his playlist each night is in part being left up to you, the audience. This being the Nineties, what sounds like an old-fashioned request show is, of course, being being billed as "interactive". Tonight and tomorrow, Birmingham NEC, Bournemouth BIC (16-17), Cardiff International Arena (19-20), Wembley Arena (22-24), 26 Glasgow SECC (26), Newcastle Arena (27), Manchester Nynex (31) (0121 780 4133)
succumb ... to the masculine charms of ballerinas Pichka Melba, Ida Nevasayneva and company. For over 20 years, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have been proving that the rather chunky thighs of its 14-man company are more than a match for the most delicate of bourrees. Both comic and extremely skilled, the Trocks will be tip-toeing through various classical ballet and contemporary dance favourites. To 31 Jan, pounds 10-pounds 27.50 Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, Kingsway, London WC2A (0171-314 8800)
