Singer Jimmy Buffett fell off a stage at the end of a concert in Sydney and was rushed to the hospital. Australia's Daily Telegraph reports that audience members saw the 64-year-old fall face first off the stage and hit his head.

Buffett's manager then took the stage and urged fans to leave the auditorium, the Hordem Pavillion.

The singer was brought to Sydney's St. Vincent's Hospital.

Wednesday night's concert was Buffett's fifth and last in Sydney on his current tour.
