Crooner Barry Manilow has been forced to axe three US concerts this weekend (6-7NOV04) while he recovers from severe bronchitis.

The I WANNA DO IT WITH YOU star, 58, hopes the swollen airways in his lungs will go down soon, and insists the cancelled shows in Denver, Houston and Dallas will be rescheduled until later this month (NOV04).

The 58-year-old is expected to recover in time for two concerts scheduled for 12 and 13 November (04) in Arizona and California.
