Phil Collins has been forced to postpone Thursday night’s Not Dead Yet tour date at London’s Royal Albert Hall after suffering a serious head injury in his hotel room. The 66-year-old rock icon was preparing to play the fourth gig in a five-night run at the venerable venue when he slipped and fell on Wednesday night.
“Phil suffers from ‘drop foot’ as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk,” read a statement on his Facebook page. “He rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair. He was taken to hospital where he had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye and is recovering well. He will be kept under observation for 24 hours.”
The Genesis singer and solo star recently launched his first tour in over a decade. The statement said he will reschedule the Royal Albert gigs for Nov. 26 and 27 and is planning to continue his tour on Sunday with a gig in Cologne before heading back to London for a headlining show at BST Hyde Park on June 30.
