Gabriel Takes A Spill

Mexican singer Juan Gabriel fell during a November 13th concert at Houston’s Toyota Center, reportedly breaking his wrist and suffering a concussion. The incident has caused the postponement of the singer’s remaining North American tour dates.

Gabriel, 55, apparently tripped and fell from the stage during the first song of his set. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to a statement from Pace Concerts.

“He came out and he was dancing like he always does,” concert-goer Concepcion Murawka told the Houston Chronicle.

The singer was wearing his signature heeled shoes, which got tangled on a stage wire just before he fell, Murawka said.

At press time, Gabriel remained “under observation until his physicians advise that he can resume his normal activities,” according to representatives.

The November 13th concert was postponed and is expected to be rescheduled, Toyota Center GM Doug Hall told Pollstar.

Other affected tour dates include New York City (November 16th), Fairfax, Va. (17th), Miami (19th), and Rosemont, Ill. (20th).

Gabriel’s management and concert organizers were working to reschedule the shows for next March. Tickets for the original concerts will be honored for the new dates.
