Barry loves his fans which is correct but he should take care of himself and just cancel what he has going on now.Most of his fans would want him to do that. If he is so exhausted and in such pain after a show why does he want to risk his health? His true fans will understand. Better safe than sorry as they say. Nothing is worth risking your health.

They never should have scheduled any of these shows until AFTER his surgery when they could then assess the time he would need to properly recover. Right now he should give it at least three more months before performing again, but of course he won't. He'll be back on the stage on the 11th.
