Barry Manilow scrapped tour dates this week to return home to Los Angeles after suffering complications from emergency oral surgery.

Manilow, 72, who had just performed in Memphis, canceled his concert in Highland Heights, Kentucky, on Thursday and his Nashville appearance for Friday, according to his Facebook page.

His reps didn't specify the nature of the complications after he had the surgery on Monday. Manilow's Twitter account told fans Thursday: "Sorry everyone."

It's unclear if the "Copacabana" crooner will still attend next Monday's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. He is nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for his 2014 record, "My Dream Duets."

He still has several dates left on his "One Last Time — One Last Tour," which is being billed as his swan song circuit.
