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 (26Jan11).
He was discharged from hospital on Thursday (27Jan11) and expected to resume his performing duties with a gig at the Auckland Viaduct on Te Wero Island on Saturday (29Jan11).
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.
