Tom Grennan Sucker Punched After New York Concert

British singer/songwriter Tom Grennan was hospitalized earlier this week following an “unprovoked attack and robbery” following his gig in New York City.

Addressing the unfortunate incident, the UK musician’s manager released a statement on social media confirming that hat the 26-year-old was attacked outside a bar in Manhattan a few hours after his performance at the Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday:

“In the early hours of this morning after Tom’s New York show he was the victim of an unprovoked attack and robbery outside a bar in Manhattan.” “Tom is currently in hospital being assessed by doctors for his injuries which include a ruptured ear, torn ear-drum (sic) and issue with his previously fractured jaw.” “Despite this, Tom is in good spirits but needs to temporarily recuperate whilst doctors assess his ability to continue with his touring.”

Grennan’s manager, John Dawkins, also confirmed that Tom’s concert in Washington D.C. on Friday (4.22) has been postponed in order that he may recover from his injuries:

“Tom is desperate not to let anyone down, however we have taken the precautionary decision to postpone the Washington show tomorrow to a later date, with details to follow.” “We will update on future shows should changes need to be made… We wish to thank Tom’s incredible US fans for their support and understanding.”

The BRIT Award nominee is next scheduled to perform in Boston on Saturday (4.23.)
