Barry Manilow Gets Hip

Barry Manilow will have to miss about 20 concerts from his regular Las Vegas Hilton gig to undergo double hip surgery.

Manilow, who has a four-year contract with the hotel, suffers from labrum tears in his hips – exacerbated by his high-energy stage show, according to his publicist.

He is expected to be back on stage aroundmid-October. The canceled shows will be rescheduled for 2007.
