RadarOnline.com has also learned that Buffet has been responsive with the hospital staff  who have been treating him since his fall.

Dan Bateman, a concertgoer who witnessed the fall, said Buffet careened face first following a rendition of Lovely Cruise.

"We were in the 10th row and it looked like he did a massive face plant after his encore and pretty much didn't get up,'' Bateman told the paper. "We were told to leave the premises. No one really wanted to leave because everyone was anxious to know if he survived the fall.
