Marc Anthony had to cancel a concert in Panama this week after sustaining a back injury before taking the stage.
Anthony’s team said that before performing on his Pa’lla Voy tour, the singer had an accident on some stairs.
“The mishap caused complications in his back, which prevented him from performing live,” his team told Billboard. “He was transferred to Miami to be treated by his specialists. We thank all the medical personnel in Panama who immediately gathered to offer their care and all the fans who were present for the long-awaited concert.”
On Thursday night (April 5), Anthony posted a video online letting his fans know that he was doing fine and to thank them for their concern and well wishes.
“I’m back in Miami, and I’m currently seeking medical attention for my back,” Anthony said. “It’s that simple. I’m human. Shit hurts. I couldn’t. I went to the concert. Why would I fly into a country and not want to do the concert? I was really excited about it, actually. Shit happens.”
Anthony explained that he was making the video for people who were concerned about him and assured them that there was nothing to worry about. “I’m going to be OK. It’s just painful. Ask anybody. I want to pray for anybody who has felt this pain. I’m going to be back soon better than ever.”
Marc Anthony’s team said the concert would be rescheduled for another date.
