NEW YORK (AP) -- Illness has forced Barry Manilow to postpone the opening night of his latest concert show on Broadway.

Producers said that Thursday's performance of "Manilow on Broadway," as well as ones scheduled for Friday and Saturday, have been rescheduled for late February and early March. Wednesday's show was also canceled.

Producers said in a statement, "It turns out the only thing worse than hell and high water is bronchitis."

The Grammy Award-winning singer of such songs as "Mandy," ''I Write the Songs" and "Looks Like We Made It," will now hold his opening night on Tuesday at the St. James Theatre.

Producers said, "Barry is deeply sorry to disappoint his fans and is doing everything he can to ensure a speedy recovery."

Hope Barry is on the road to recovery real soon.  I am prone to respiratory infections and had pneumonia last year, so I know how bad he feels.  God bless and god speed to future great good health Barry!

I had bronchitis as a child. I guess in some people's views, I was a very bad kid back then.
