Legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach has delayed a string of shows after undergoing surgery on his back.
The 81-year-old composer/pianist was set to play a concert in Florida on 9 January (10), before jetting to Australia to play gigs in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in February and March (10).
But the hitmaker is still recovering in hospital after surgery on New Year's Eve (31Dec09), and has postponed the shows to allow himself time to fully recover.
His publicist Linda Dozoretz confirms the dates will be rescheduled for later this year (10) or even early 2011.
