Jimmy Buffet Hospitalized After Falling Off Stage In Sydney

SYDNEY (AP) — Singer Jimmy Buffett fell off a stage at the end of a concert in Sydney and was rushed to the hospital.

Australia’s Daily Telegraph reports that audience members saw the 64-year-old fall face first off the stage and hit his head.

Buffett was in his bare feet as he walked along the stage, making his farewells, TMZ’s Harvey Levin described to KNX 1070.

Buffett’s manager then took the stage and urged fans to leave the auditorium, the Hordem Pavillion.

The singer was brought to Sydney’s St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Wednesday night’s concert was Buffett’s fifth and last in Sydney on his current tour.

    Well, I hope there’s booze in the blender and that soon it will render that frozen concoction that helps him hang on.

    I hear that he blew out his flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top, cut his heel and had to cruise on back home.
