Burt Bacharach is postponing several concerts as he recovers from back surgery.
Publicist Linda Dozoretz said the 81-year-old composer is recovering at a hospital after the New Year's Eve surgery.
She said that the US star's prognosis is excellent, but he will need to postpone scheduled concerts through mid-March.
Performances in Australia, New Zealand and Palm Beach will be rescheduled for later this year or early next year.
The legendary hitmaker most recently performed on December 19 in Italy.
