BARRY MANILOW is out of surgery and "doing well" after being rushed to hospital "due to complications from emergency oral surgery," in a report on the BBC.
The 72-year-old singer was rushed from a sold-out performance in MEMPHIS WEDNESDAY night and taken to an L.A. hospital.
A message posted on his FACEBOOK page by management said: "BARRY is out of surgery and doing well. His doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications. For the next 48 hours, MANILOW has been instructed not to talk, sing, or rap. BARRY thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."
MANILOW's management team said it was due to complications arising from an oral surgery he had on MONDAY (FEBRUARY 8th).
"Ticket holders should retain their existing tickets for redemption on the night of the new date," the original FACEBOOK statement said.
MANILOW is slated to attend MONDAY night's GRAMMY AWARDS, though it's not yet known whether he will still be able to make it.
MANILOW has suffered a series of health setbacks, having to undergo regular dental treatment after a benign tumour ruptured in his mouth in 1986.
"One Last Time, One Last Tour" was supposed to be his farewell to live performances, taking him to the U.K. and NORTH AMERICA, ending JUNE 23rd at LONDON's O2 ARENA.
