The 72-year old, known for hits "Mandy", "Can't Smile Without
You", "Could It Be Magic" and "Copacabana", had performed in
Memphis on Wednesday. His next two concerts were canceled and
are being rescheduled.
"Following a triumphant sold out concert in Memphis, Barry
Manilow was rushed back to Los Angeles due to complications from
emergency oral surgery that Manilow had on Monday," the
statement posted on the singer's website and his Facebook page
on Thursday said.
Manilow's latest album "My Dream Duets" is nominated for a
Grammy Award at Monday's ceremony in Los Angeles.
"At this time it is unclear if Manilow will be able to attend
the Grammy Awards," the statement said.
