Barry Manilow - Barry Manilow Has Surgery

Barry Manilow has undergone surgery for bursitis and torn leg muscles.

The 'Mandy' singer has been suffering from the painful condition - which is an inflammation of one or more bursae (small sacs) of synovial fluid located in the muscles and tendons in the body - in his hips and also has had abductor muscle injuries and he was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital for an operation today (12.12.11).

Referring to his best known song, Manilow said: "That's what you get when you jump around to 'Copacabana' for 30 years! Wish me luck!"

A post on his official twitter page read: "Surgery went VERY well. Barry's in recovery. (sic)"

The 68-year-old musician will now spend the next six weeks recuperating.

Manilow performed his 1,000th Las Vegas concert, spanning seven years, at the Las Vegas Hilton and the Paris Resort last night (11.12.11).

He is due to return to the stage on February 2 at The Chicago Theater and after two more concerts in the city he is then booked to play four nights at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
