Jimmy Buffett made a frightening, unexpected exit from the stage during a concert in Sydney on Tuesday.

As horrified fans looked on, the entertainer, 64, took a nasty tumble off the front of the stage, then was taken to a hospital with a head injury, according to reports.

"The doctors say he is doing well and will be released tomorrow," his rep said in a statement. "More info as we get it, and thank you for all of your well-wishes!"

Before the accident, the singer's "Welcome to Fin Land" tour was scheduled to continue on Saturday in New Zealand, and resume in the States this April.
