Barry Manilow is focused on his recovery.
The "Copacabana" singer has postponed his upcoming Los Angeles and Chicago concerts due to sprained vocal chords, according to an announcement posted on his Facebook page on Saturday. Manilow was expected to perform at The Forum in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, and the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, on Wednesday.
"We regret to inform you that Barry Manilow’s two concerts scheduled for this week in Los Angeles and Chicago are currently being rescheduled. Barry is on doctors orders to rest due to sprained vocal chords. We are all very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause," read the statement.
"Tickets issued for the original dates will be honored at the rescheduled dates. Patrons holding tickets for the original dates are encouraged to use them for the new date; no exchange is necessary. Please contact the point-of-purchase for more information," the statement continued. "Again, we’re terribly sorry for any inconvenience, but we look forward to seeing you very soon!"
"The more I thought about it, the more I realized that's what I expected from these people. They've been supportive of me from the very beginning. All they care about is that I'm happy!" he gushed. "And when that came out, I expected them to react like that. I am so proud that they did."
