After suffering complications from surgery Thursday afternoon, Barry Manilow was rushed from a Memphis facility to a Los Angeles hospital.

Reps for the 72-year-old released a statement through the singer's Facebook page late Thursday night, revealing initial details on his condition.

"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 read.

Sadly, due to the emergency procedure, the "Copacabana" hit-maker may be forced to skip out on this year's Grammy Awards.

"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," the statement continued.

Of course, this isn't the vocalist's first hospital trip in the last month. As Radar previously reported, Manilow was airlifted to the hospital in January following a heart attack scare.

According to a source close to Manilow, he began experiencing heart palpitations at the Palm Springs, Calif. home that he shares with husband Garry Kief, 66.

In the wake of his most recent health scare, Manilow's Thursday and Friday concerts in Nashville on his One Last Time Tour, have been subsequently rescheduled.

Story developing.
