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

Producers said Thursday's performance of "Manilow on Broadway" - as well as ones scheduled for today and Satur-day - 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 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."
