Barry Manilow has been hospitalized with a bronchial infection, People reports. The illness forced the musician to postpone the opening weekend of his residency at the Westgate Las Vegas. He is expected to make a speedy recovery.
"I can't believe this is happening," Manilow said in a statement to People, confirming he has been hospitalized and diagnosed with a bronchial infection. "Our new show is ready, we're all ready, and we were all looking forward to tonight."
"The entire Westgate family wishes Barry a speedy recovery and we know that he will dazzle audiences when his show resumes on June 21st," said David Siegel, Westgate Resorts' Founder & CEO.
Guests originally scheduled to attend this weekend's performances will have the opportunity to get a full refund for the tickets. Additionally, once future dates are released, ticket exchanges will be offered.
