Music and passion may always be in fashion at the Copacabana, but it does take its toll.

Barry Manilow, 68, is undergoing surgery for bursitis in his hips and to repair torn leg muscles. He plans to spend the next six weeks recovering.

"That’s what you get when you jump around to 'Copacabana' for 30 years!" he says. "Wish me luck!”

The showman just performed his 1,000th Las Vegas concert in a seven-year run at the Las Vegas Hilton and The Paris Resort.



He is scheduled to return to the stage Feb. 2 at The Chicago Theater.
