Rod Stewart injured after concert slip up

Singer needs 10 stitches in his leg

Rod Stewart has been taken to hospital after slipping over at a gig in Manchester last night (June 28).

The 62-year-old needed 10 stitches in his leg after he fell on a step at the beginning of his City Of Manchester Stadium gig.

Despite the slip, the singer carried on performing before he was eventually treated by a doctor today (June 29).

But the accident meant that he missed the 02 Silver Clef Awards in London where he was set to be presented with an award by TV chef Gordon Ramsay, reports This Is London.

His spokeswoman said: “Rod Stewart was unable to attend the Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef lunch to receive his Icon award after cutting his leg on a wet, slippery metal step while making his entrance on stage last night at the City of Manchester Stadium.

“He performed the entire show in the rain, refusing any medical treatment, and today received 10 stitches to the wound.

“Happily his doctor has confirmed he will be able to perform tomorrow’s (June 30) show at Twickenham Stadium and the ‘Concert for Diana’ on Sunday (July 1).”
