ABC/Lou RoccoIt looks like Barry Manilow made it through his emergency oral surgery just fine. A message posted Friday on the pop legend's official website says, "Barry is out of surgery and doing well. His Doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications."
The note adds, with a touch of humor, that "Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing or rap" for the next 48 hours. The message also points out that the 72-year-old singer "thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."
As previously reported, Manilow experienced complications from a surgical procedure he underwent on Monday, and flew back to Los Angeles to have a follow-up operation after playing a sold-out show on Wednesday in Memphis.
Barry's health issue forced him to postpone two of his concerts this week, shows scheduled last night in Highland Heights, Kentucky, and tonight in Nashville. The concerts will be rescheduled soon, and those with tickets can hold on to them and redeem them on the new date.
The next show on Manilow's itinerary is scheduled for this Wednesday, February 17, in Houston. The current North American leg of his One Last Time -- One Last Tour is mapped out through a March 26 concert in Rockford, Illinois.
