The veteran singer who was hospitalized after falling off stage is going to reschedule his New Zealand gig.
Singer Jimmy Buffet has axed a concert in New Zealand as he continues to recover from a nasty stage fall. The veteran entertainer was rendered unconscious after tumbling off the stage and hitting his head on a metal ledge at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday, January 26.
He was discharged from hospital on Thursday, January 27 and expected to resume his performing duties with a gig at the Auckland Viaduct on Te Wero Island on Saturday. However, he has now canceled the show to allow himself more time to heal.
A spokesperson for Buffett says, "Jimmy would like to thank all of his fans for their support, and wants them all to know that he will return." A rescheduled date has not yet been confirmed.
