London (AP) — Singer Phil Collins was rushed to the hospital last week after a fall in his London hotel room left him with a severe gash near his eye that required stitches.

His management said in a statement that concerts planned for London’s Royal Albert Hall have been postponed until November.

The 66-year-old former Genesis star, who suffers from a gait abnormality after a back operation, tripped over a chair in the middle of the night.

He was given stitches for the cut on his head and was kept under observation for 24 hours.

Collins was expected to continue his comeback tour in Cologne, Germany, before performing at British Summer Time Hyde Park on June 30.
