The former Moloko singer suffers eye injury

Former Moloko singer Roisin Murphy is recovering after an onstage accident.

While performing in Russia on Saturday (October 27), the singer suffered an eye injury.

Murphy was playing Moscow’s Ikra Club when she hit her head on a chair and damaged her eye socket.

She left the stage immediately and was raced to hospital where she received emergency treatment at a hospital.

Murphy returned to the UK yesterday (October 28) where she has undergone an operation under general anaesthetic.

According to a statement: “Despite serious concussion and losing a lot of blood, her vision is unimpaired.”

Her European dates for the next seven dates have been cancelled, but it is hoped that she will make a full recovery before her UK and Irish tour begins on November 26.

The cancelled tour dates are set to be rescheduled for later in the year.
