(Newser) – Barry Manilow had to scrap two tour dates this week after he was "rushed" from Memphis, Tenn., to Los Angeles due to complications from an emergency oral surgery he had on Monday, according to a post on his Facebook page. A publicist told CNN on Thursday that he's "perfectly healthy" and not in a hospital—it isn't clear if that's where he was initially taken—but may miss Monday's Grammys as a result; he's nominated for his album "My Dream Duets."

Us Weekly reports Manilow, 72, has received regular dental treatments in the three decades since a benign tumor ruptured in his mouth. "Other than the dental issue, he is doing great," his publicist says. (Read more Barry Manilow stories.)
