Barry Manilow - Barry Manilow Axes New York Concerts

Barry Manilow has been forced to axe a series of New York City shows after failing to make a full recovery from his hip surgery last year (11).
The veteran crooner underwent an operation to treat inflammatory condition bursitis and repair torn muscles in his legs in December (11) and he is currently undergoing intensive physical therapy sessions - but his recovery isn't going as well as he'd hoped.
Manilow has postponed four gigs at Radio City Music Hall, which were scheduled to begin on Friday (10Feb12), after realising he won't be back in top condition in time.
Apologising to his fans, the Copacabana hitmaker tells BroadwayWorld.com, "All of us are greatly disappointed and feel terrible that we are disappointing so many others.
"We have all worked very hard on creating the new show and at the same time spent hours with physical therapists to get back in shape. We are all very sorry. The pain of having to postpone our shows at Radio City is more than the pain I’ve been going through from the hip surgery."
Manilow now hopes to hit the road again later this month (Feb12).
