During his concert on Tuesday night in Sydney, Jimmy Buffet fell off the stage and was rushed to the hospital for a head injury. The 64-year-old singer crashed into a large opening in front of the stage during the show's finale and suffered a gash on the head, reports TMZ.com

An audience member reported that Buffet appeared unconscious for about 5 to 10 minutes after the fall before paramedics arrived at the scene. "We were in the 10th row and it looked like he did a massive face-plant after his encore and pretty much didn't get up," said the audience member. According to TMZ.com, a sequence of flashing lights may have temporarily blinded Buffet, causing him to misjudge the gap in front of the stage.

The singer remains under doctors' care at St. Vincent's Hospital, but is said to be in stable condition.
