Barry Manilow, 74, 'addresses' rumors over failing health
The iconic singer is said to be struggling with health issues.
But 74-year-old Barry Manilow doesn't seem to be ailing, if one goes by his world tour schedules, as reported by Inquisitr.
The world-famous singer just added a few extra shows to his world tour. It seems to be his response to people saying he has been on the verge of death because of cancer.
The Daily Post reported that the Can't Smile Without You singer added three new shows to his tour in London because of an 'overwhelming demand' from fans.
He will hold concerts in Leeds, Manchester, and Birmingham in early September. The new dates were added to his three-day show at London's O2 Arena. The show runs from September 7 to 9.
Several reports have alleged that Manilow's health has been failing because of his smoking addiction.
Negative rumors about his health intensified after he canceled a few shows in the past. But his official reason for canceling the shows was that he had a vocal cord sprain.
In 2015, the Copacobana crooner was airlifted to a hospital in Los Angeles after experiencing heart palpitations while in his mansion in Palm Springs.
He was treated for a heart attack. After surviving that, Manilow still kept on with his smoking habit.
A year later, he was forced again to cancel shows after undergoing oral surgery. After the successful surgery, he was instructed by doctors not to talk or sing in the next forty eight hours.
The iconic singer has sold 85 million records and he has 50 songs that ranked in the top 40. For that, he is one of the highest ranked Adult Contemporary artists in the world.
Among the several accolades he has received in his musical career are Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy. He was also honored with a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. His career has spanned more than 50 years.
