LEGENDARY singer Barry Manilow has addressed his fans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The star, 76, is expected to play the Hydro in Glasgow on June 7 and the venue has been forced to cancel several shows in the last week.

He told fans: "I want you to know that I am thinking about you and share your worries and concerns.

"But I am also an optimist and a great believer in the strength of the human spirit.

"Deep in my gut I know that we will all get through this; with kindness, concern, and compassion for each other.

"I also want you to know that we are juggling concert dates as quickly as we can.

"None of us want you or any of us to take any unnecessary risks. We’ll announce the changes as soon as they are set. I hope within the next 24 hours. Please stick with us in these trying times.

"Thank you to everyone who has shared their concerns."
