Collins forced to postpone shows after hotel fall

By Joe Nerssessian

Phil Collins has been rushed to hospital with a severe gash close to his eye forcing him to postpone a number of shows, his management said.

The former Genesis star (66) tripped in his London hotel room and hit his head on a chair during a visit to the toilet in the middle of Wednesday night, hours after he performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of his comeback tour.

Collins suffers from a "drop foot" as a result of a back operation which causes him difficulty walking.

He was rushed to hospital, where he was given stitches for the cut on his head, and will be kept under observation for 24 hours.
