This will also be Manilow's 14th year performing at the Westgate. The Westgate was formerly known as the International Hotel and is where Elvis Presley used to perform. According to casino officials, Manilow is set to pass Presley for the most shows at the property by the end of 2023. That magic number is 636 shows, which Presley performed between 1969 until 1976.
