Barry Manilow’s ‘A Very Barry Christmas’ Show Canceled Due To Heart Problem


Barry Manilow has canceled his Thursday night show at Westgate’s International Theater to treat atrial fibrillation (or AFib), an abnormal heartbeat.

The 79-year-old superstar’s condition is not considered serious. He will be treated and released at a Las Vegas hospital on Thursday night.

Manilow was to open his annual “A Very Barry Christmas” holiday production, which runs through Dec. 10. Manilow has shifted Thursday’s performance to a 4 p.m. matinee, followed by his usual 7 p.m. show time.

The 4 p.m. start is a first for Manilow at the International.

Manilow was to be treated at a Las Vegas hospital on Thursday night to reset his regular heart rate. The hotel said: “Barry sends his most sincere regrets for any inconvenience and looks forward to seeing everyone at (Friday’s) shows.”
