Jimmy Barnes has been released from hospital after falling and suffering a “deep cut and severe bruising” to his thigh during a performance in Mount Isa on Sunday night.
The 62-year-old rock legend sustained the injury when one of his legs fell into a gap between two platforms on stage, and he spent Sunday night in hospital, before being released on Monday.
In a statement to Music Feeds, a spokesperson for Barnes said, “Thankfully he was able to complete the show. He will be able to walk the red carpet at the premiere of his movie Working Class Boy in Melbourne on Thursday night as planned.”
Barnes had been performing as the headline act at the Mount Isa Rodeo. Fans close to the front of the stage have told The North West Star they noticed blood trickling down Barnes’ leg following the fall, but the singer finished his set anyway.
Jimmy Barnes: Working Class Boy will be have a limited release in cinemas across the country, opening on Thursday, 23rd August. Watch the trailer below.
