Singer Jimmy Buffett 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.

He was discharged from hospital on Thursday and expected to resume his performing duties with a gig at the Auckland Viaduct on Te Wero Island on Saturday.

However, he has now cancelled 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.
