Looks like he's not going to make it to those shows around Valentine's Day. Barry Manilow’s long-awaited run of shows at Radio City Music Hall has been postponed.
The original shows – set for Feb. 10-12 and 14 – have been pushed back to April and May because of pain in his hips from recent extensive muscular surgery in his hips. One of the shows has not been rescheduled.
“All of us are greatly disappointed and feel terrible that we are disappointing so many others,” Manilow said in a statement. “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.”
Here’s the lowdown: Tickets for Feb. 10 will be honored on April 30; tickets for Feb. 11 are good for May 1; tickets for Feb. 12 will be honored on May 2. As of now, there is no new date for the Feb. 14 concert. Tickets for that performance will be credited to the original purchaser’s credit card account.
“We are all very sorry,” Manilow added. “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.”
