Jimmy Buffett Leaves Hospital
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jimmy Buffett[/lastfm] has been released from a Sydney, Australia hospital after falling off the stage during his show there last night. A post on Buffett’s website states that “doctors say he is doing well.”
Buffett was singing “Lovely Cruise” when the accident occurred. The hospital’s emergency department director, who was at the show, says Buffett suffered a head injury and lost consciousness, but adds that scans of his head “shows that he’s okay.”
Concertgoer Dan Bateman tells Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, “We were in the 10th row and it looked like he did a massive face plant after his encore and pretty much didn’t get up. We were told to leave the premises. No one really wanted to leave because everyone was anxious to know if he survived the fall. Everyone was pretty horrified.”
These were Buffett’s first shows in Australia in 20 years and he promises to do more next year. His next show is scheduled for Saturday in New Zealand.
