NEW YORK, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Barry Manilow's publicist says the beloved entertainer was forced to cancel Thursday and Friday's shows after suffering complications from emergency oral surgery.

"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, " a press release said Thursday.

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

The 72-year-old singer-songwriter's One Last Time -- One Last Tour concerts in Highland Heights and Nashville are being re-scheduled with new dates to be announced shortly. Ticket holders should retain their existing tickets for redemption on the new dates.
