Barry Manilow has hip surgery

Los Angeles - Copacabana singer Barry Manilow underwent hip repair surgery on Monday, a day after completing a seven-year run of shows in Las Vegas, his representatives said.

68-year-old Manilow had the surgery at a Los Angeles hospital, said spokesperson Annie Jeeves.

"That's what you get when you jump around to Copacabana for 30 years!" Manilow said in a statement.

The surgery was to repair torn abductor muscles and remove fluid-filled sacs in his hips.

Manilow will be in recovery for six weeks, but will return to the stage for a series of three concerts at the Chicago Theatre in early February.

Aside from Copacabana, Manilow's hit tracks include Mandy and I Write the Songs.
