TIJUANA, MEXICO—Singer Enrique Iglesias, 40, was injured during his performance after attempting to use a drone, but that did not stop him from continuing the show.
Iglesias was in the midst of a performance for his “Sex and Love World Tour” in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday, May 30 when he grabbed the wrong part of the drone and sustained a serious injury to his hand.
He was briefly taken off-stage for treatment and then returned to perform for an additional 30 minutes. He was hospitalized after the show.
The following statement regarding his condition was revealed on Tuesday, June 2 via Iglesias’ website:
“We wanted to give you a personal update about his condition. His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed. He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery. He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated.”
The statement continued, “Thank you to all the fans for your concern and good wishes. Enrique is getting the help he needs and we hope he will be totally fine. Will keep you posted and appreciate all your wishes and prayers.”
