SYDNEY, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- "Margaritaville mayor" Jimmy Buffett was resting comfortably in a Sydney hospital after falling off the stage during a concert, the singer's Web site said.

SAVE MONEY ON TRAVEL DEALS

"As you probably already know, Jimmy had an accident while performing in Sydney last night and was taken to the hospital", a Web posting Wednesday said. "The doctors say he is doing well and will be released tomorrow. More info as we get it, and thank you for all of your well-wishes!"

Fans at the sold-out concert at the Hordern Pavilion were told to leave the auditorium by Buffett's Australian tour manager, Michael Chugg, as the entertainer was on the floor of the first row of seating waiting for emergency medical personnel to tend to his head wound, The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph reported.

Audience member Dan Bateman told the newspaper Buffett fell face first off the stage.

"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", Bateman said. "We were told to leave the premises. No one really wanted to leave because everyone was anxious to know if he survived the fall. Everyone was pretty horrified."
