Jean Catuffe/GC ImagesThe good news: Phil Collins is OK. The bad news, if you’ve got tickets to his shows tonight and tomorrow, is those shows have been cancelled.

The reason, according to a note posted on Phil’s official Facebook page Thursday morning, is that the singer “rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair. He was taken to hospital where he had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye and is recovering well.”

The post also notes Collins, who’s 66, “suffers from ‘drop foot’ as a result of a back operation which makes it difficult to walk,” which apparently caused or contributed to his fall.

“He will be kept under observation for 24 hours.” the statement says. Because of that, his shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London, scheduled for tonight and Friday night, have been cancelled. No worries, though — they’ve already been rescheduled for November 26 and 26 of this year, so if you’ve got tickets, hang on to them.

Phil’s expected to resume his tour Sunday, playing his scheduled date in Cologne, Germany.
