LOS ANGELES (AP) — A publicist says Burt Bacharach is postponing several concerts as he recovers from back surgery.

Publicist Linda Dozoretz says the 81-year-old composer is recovering at a hospital after the New Year’s Eve surgery.

Dozoretz says Bacharach’s prognosis is excellent, but he will need to postpone scheduled concerts through mid-March.

Performances in Australia, New Zealand and Palm Beach, Fla., will be rescheduled for later in this year or early next year.

Bacharach most recently performed on Dec. 19 in Italy.
