NEW YORK - 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."
