Barry Manilow is on the mend after being rushed from Memphis to a Los Angeles hospital when complications from an earlier surgery began to arise.

"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 Thursday post on Manilow's Facebook page read.

However, "Barry is out of surgery and doing well. His doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications," a rep for 72-year-old Manilow told PEOPLE Friday morning. "For the next 48 hours, Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing, or rap. Barry thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."

On top of having to cancel performances, it's unclear if Manilow, who is nominated for his 15th Grammy, will still make an appearance at the awards show on Monday.
