Barry Manilow has been rushed to hospital due to complications from emergency oral surgery.

The 72-year-old singer was taken to a Los Angeles hospital shortly after playing a sold-out show.

In a message posted on Manilow's Facebook page, his management team said it was due to complications arising from an operation he had early this week.

Manilow was due to attend Monday night's Grammy awards - it's not yet known whether he will still be able to make it.
