Barry Manilow’s show slated for June 30 at the Menorah Mivtachim Arena has been postponed.
The veteran Grammy award winning singer-songwriter had announced the show on his Facebook page in April by posting: “Manilow. Israel. June. Will you be there?”
Manilow, born Barry Alan Pincus in New York, was immediately bombarded in the comments to his post by fans, some questioning if the post was a joke while others begged for information on ticket sales. Manilow responded to the comments stating that this was in fact not a joke and that the show will take place June 30 in Tel Aviv, with ticket sales opening shortly.
However, producers of the show announced its postponement last week. A publicist for the promoters gave the reason as being due to the overflowing schedule of international artists performing in Israel, adding that the show would be rescheduled when the concert calendar lightened up later in the year.
