ritish singer Tom Grennan has been attacked in a robbery outside a Manhattan bar, his management said.
The “unprovoked” attack left the Little Bit of Love singer with a ruptured ear and torn ear-drum, while the 26-year-old was also forced to postpone his upcoming Washington show.
The attack is said to have happened on Wednesday.
In a statement, his manager John Dawkins said: “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 being assessed by doctors for his injuries which include a ruptured ear, torn ear-drum 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.”
The Brit Award nominated singer is “desperate not to let anyone down”, his management said, but his team have taken the “precautionary decision” to postpone his Washington show to a later date.
“We wish to thank Tom’s incredible US fans and their support and understanding,” added the statement. “We will update on future shows should changes need to be made.”
The singer started his tour in Minneapolis on April 14 and its US leg was set to wrap in Los Angeles on April 27.
A month later, he is due to kick off the UK-Ireland leg of his tour in Cork on May 31.
Grennan has been nominated for an 2022 Ivor Novello award for the song Let’s Go Home Together, with Ella Henderson.
The Ivor Novello Awards recognise creative musical achievement in songwriting and composition.
