“Following check-ups, he was immediately discharged this morning and is now back at home and in good health.”

This is not the first time John has suffered injuries from a fall after a more serious slip that sent him into surgery for a severe hip injury in 2021. 

The injuries forced him to push back his tour dates at the time.
