Tom Grennan hospitalized after ‘unprovoked attack’ in New York – Reuters

British singer Tom Grennan was hospitalized following an “unprovoked attack and robbery” after his concert in New York on Wednesday.

The Little Bit of Love singer’s manager released a statement on social media on Thursday, revealing that the 26-year-old was assaulted outside a Manhattan bar hours after his performance at the Bowery Ballroom.

“In the early hours of this morning after Tom’s show in New York, he was the victim of an unprovoked attack and robbery outside a bar in Manhattan,” the statement read. “Tom is currently in hospital being assessed by doctors for his injuries which include a ruptured ear, a torn eardrum (sic) and a problem with his previously fractured jaw.

“Despite this, Tom is in good spirits but needs to recover temporarily while doctors assess his ability to continue his tour.”

His manager, John Dawkins, explained that Tom’s concert in Washington DC on Friday had been postponed to allow him to recover from his injuries.

“Tom is desperate not to let anyone down, but we have made the precautionary decision to reschedule the Washington show tomorrow to a later date, with details to follow,” the statement continued. “We will update future shows if any changes need to be made…We want to thank Tom’s amazing American fans for their support and understanding.”

A New York Police Department spokesperson told the New York Post via email that there is currently “no relation to this name on file.”

The BRIT Awards nominee is next due to perform in Boston on Saturday.
