A day after he was attacked by thugs and hit by a taxi cab in New York, singer Gavin DeGraw thanked fans for their well wishes, and admitted he’s in the dark about the incident which left him hospitalized with a broken nose, concussion and facial lacerations.
“Hi my friends,” DeGraw, who was released from Bellevue Hospital Tuesday, tweeted to his 60,000+ followers. “Honestly, I don’t remember much. I only know I can recover from here.
DeGraw’s rep Tuesday issued a statement canceling a pair of the singer’s upcoming performances: “As a result of Gavin’s injuries, he won’t be performing in Wantagh, NY on August 12 or Mansfield, MA on August 13.”
As we previously reported, the 34-year-old New York native was assaulted by a group of thugs in New York’s East Village early Monday. As he stumbled down the street – dazed and confused – he was hit by a cab. No arrests have been made in the incident, police said, adding it’s still under investigation.
DeGraw got his break in the music business when his biggest hit, I Don’t Want To Be, was selected as the theme song for the television drama, One Tree Hill.
DeGraw’s fifth album, Sweeter, comes out September 20.
