With a written statement, the 44 year old said on Instagram: "Thank you for your well wishes! So last night I did have a little accident on stage in Glasgow, where I didn't realise the mechanical stairs had opened behind me.

"A crazy moment which could have been a lot worse but I'm completely fine, a little bit battered and bruised but ok! I'll see y'all back up there tonight. The show must go on. Thanks for all your well wishes."

In a reference to the band's famous song, he then said: "#ReallyFlyingWithoutWings" He also praised the "wonderful medics" at the arena who treated him.
