Phil Collin’s Cancels Remaining UK Tour Shows After Being Injured in Hotel Room Fall

Singer Phil Collins has been forced to cancel the remainder of his comeback tour in Britain after a fall in his hotel room.

A statement by his management posted on his official Facebook page said he suffered a “severe gash on his head close to his eye” after tripping on the way to his hotel bathroom on Wednesday night.

Collins’ injury required stitches in hospital.

The statement also said Collins was “recovering well”, but would be kept under observation for at least 24 hours.

The remaining two shows on his tour were to take place on 8 and 8 June, but have now been rescheduled for November, postponed just hours before Collins was due to perform.

The 66-year-old singer has had difficulty trouble walking following back surgery, currently walking with one, sometimes two canes as a result of a condition called “drop foot”.

Collins had not been on tour in about a decade before his current concert.

The Facebook statement said Collins’ injury would not affect concert dates in Germany and France.

He will continue his tour with his next date on Sunday in Cologne and Paris, before returning to London to headline BST Hyde Park on 30 June.

Collins sent his “sincere apologies and thanks to fans” in the Facebook post, and said he was looking forward to getting back on stage.
