Kicking off his Broadway comeback, Barry Manilow delights his fans with set list crammed full of hits. The 69-year-old star thrilled die-hard fans with his collection of classic pop songs, which include 'Copacabana', 'I Write the Songs' and and 'Looks Like We Made It'. But he nearly didn't make it - after a bout of bronchitis forced him to cancel the original opening last week. The veteran showman did manage to shake it off but was still a little under the weather.
