Barry Manilow Cancels Australian Tour Due to Weather


Barry Manilow


The continent has been battered with raging floods last month and fires are currently raging Western part, forcing the singer to set a later date.

Veteran singer Barry Manilow has postponed his planned tour of Australia in April due to the extreme weather conditions hitting the country.The state of Queensland, on Australia's East Coast, was battered by raging floods in January, leaving thousands homeless, and the same area was hit by Cyclone Yasi last week.

Fires are currently raging in Perth, Western Australia, and Manilow has subsequently decided to push back his scheduled shows. A statement on the star's website reads, "Due to the current conditions in Australia, Barry's upcoming April tour in Australia has been postponed. All other concert dates, including the U.K. and a few more to be announced are not affected and are on schedule."

No new dates have been announced for the gigs, but promoter Paul Dainty says, "Future plans are presently under discussion."

    As a musician, I love Barry Manilow. I feel it would have been very uplifting for Barry's Austraillian fans to have him visit at this time. Funny - Keith Urban is "starting" his GET CLOSER Tour in April in Austrailia - but then, Keith is from Austrailia!!
