Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones was discharged from a hospital in New Zealand today following surgery to relieve pressure in his head following a fall, his publicist said.
Fran Curtis said in a brief statement that Richards would remain an outpatient at The Ascot Hospital in Auckland and would return for check-ups.
Richards suffered the injury on April 27 in Fiji. News reports have variously claimed that he fell out of a palm tree or from a jet-ski. It was unclear how long Richards would remain an outpatient, and Curtis could not immediately be reached for comment.
The Stones’ A Bigger Bang European tour, which was scheduled to start in Barcelona, Spain, later this month, will be postponed until June, London-based publicists LD Communications said in a statement earlier this week.
