Collins cancels shows.

PHIL Collins has been rushed to hospital with a severe gash close to his eye forcing him to postpone a number of shows.

The former Genesis star, 66, tripped in his London hotel room and hit his head on a chair during a visit to the toilet in the middle of Wednesday night, hours after he performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of his comeback tour.

Collins suffers from a "drop foot" as a result of a back operation which causes him difficulty walking. He was rushed to hospital, where he was given stitches.

Last night's and tonight's concerts at the venue have been postponed until November and he is expected to continue his comeback tour in Cologne, Germany, on Sunday.
