Barry Manilow was taken to a Los Angeles hospital and canceled concerts planned for Thursday night and Friday due to complications from surgery, according to a posting on the singer’s Facebook page.

Manilow performed in Memphis this week, and following the performance he was “rushed back to Los Angeles due to complications from emergency oral surgery that Manilow had on Monday,” according to the statement.

The 72-year-old singer, famed for hits such as “Copacabana” and “Mandy,” canceled performances scheduled tonight in Kentucky and Friday night in Nashville.

“At this time it is unclear if Manilow will be able to attend the Grammy Awards on Monday, February 15th, where he is nominated for his 15th Grammy Award for his latest album, ‘My Dream Duets,”‘ according to the statement.

Manilow’s tour has been billed as his last. It is scheduled to wrap up June 23 in London.
