Randy Newman postpones European tour

LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 30, 2008 The 64-year-old "I Love L.A" and "I Love to See You Smile" singer-songwriter cited "physical limitations and severe pain caused by stenosis in the lower back and neck," a statement posted Thursday on his Web site said.

The European tour was scheduled to begin Saturday in Berlin.

"I deeply regret not being able to come," the multiple Grammy and Oscar winner said. "I like it so much in Europe, and I've always been treated so well. I'll get there as soon as I can."

The tour was in support of "Harps and Angels," Newman's first collection of new material in nine years.

Details of rescheduled dates will be announced later.
