Attention, Barry Manilow fans-- the "Mandy" singer has postponed his Chicago concert dates to recover from hip surgery.

Manilow announced Tuesday he'll play The Chicago Theatre from July 12-14 instead of the original Feb. 2-4 dates. Manilow's doctor advised him to hold off while he undergoes physical therapy from muscular surgery in his hips.

“All of us are greatly disappointed and feel terrible that we are disappointing so many others,” Manilow said in a statement. “We have all worked very hard on creating the new show and at the same time spent hours with physical therapists to get back in shape. Unfortunately, my hips just aren’t ready yet; and these hips don’t lie.”

Manilow will continue his tour at Radio City Music Hall on Feb 10.

Tickets previously purchased for the February shows will be honored for the new respective dates. Tickets purchased for the Friday, Feb. 3 performance, for example, will be honored for the Friday, July 13 show.
