Veteran musician Jimmy Buffett has been admitted to hospital in Australia after taking a nasty tumble off the stage during a concert.
The 64 year old was performing at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Wednesday when he fell into a large gap in front of the audience during the gig finale.

Buffett was reportedly unconscious for several minutes and suffered a gash on his head, reports TMZ.com.

The singer was taken to the city’s St. Vincent’s Hospital by paramedics, where he is said to be in a stable condition. He will reportedly remain in hospital while doctors assess the extent of his injuries.
