Phil Collins, 66, is well known for his music, especially his major hit "Can't Hurry Love." This morning, he had to cancel two of his sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London due to a fall he had last night that left him hospitalized.

According to MSN, the former Genesis frontman turned solo superstar, suffers from a condition called "drop foot." The condition makes it difficult for him to walk. It was caused by a spinal cord surgery he underwent under years of drumming put a wear and tear on his back.

Before the surgery, he told Rolling Stone magazine that the 2007 Genesis reunion tour led to a dislocated vertebra in his neck.

This caused him nerve damage in his hands which ultimately left him unable to play the drums anymore.

"I can't even hold the sticks properly without it being painful," he told Rolling Stone.

However, the surgery he underwent for his injury was successful other than the fact that he was left with drop foot and some nerve damage.

What is drop foot?

According to the Mayo Clinic, drop foot is described as a gait abnormality causing an inability to raise the front part of the foot due to a paralysis or weakness of the muscles that lift the foot. It can also be caused by irritation or damage to the common fibular nerve or paralysis of muscles in the anterior portion of the lower leg.

In the middle of the night, Phil woke up in his Hotel Room to use the bathroom and his footing failed him. He fell to the floor and hit his head on a chair, resulting in a large gash over his eye.

Spokesperson announces show cancellation on Facebook

The spokesperson for Phil announced the cancellation of his tours in a Facebook post:

Phil was booked to do five shows at the Royal Albert Hall after his June 2 concert at Liverpool's Echo Arena. He wasn't going to let the Manchester Arena attacks put a stop to his performance, However, the shows are now cancelled due to his fall.

Phil had taken a hiatus from performing in 2011 and just returned this week to perform his first several concerts in 10 years. He offered his "sincere apologies" for the incident. He was looking forward to performing at the Royal Albert Hall.

However, Phil looks forward to returning to the stage as soon as he is feeling better and will hopefully perform at the last 3 concerts he has scheduled at the Royal Albert Hall.

The tour was ironically called "Collins' Not Dead Yet Live!" Fans claimed to have seen Phil sitting through his gigs this week or performing with a cane.

However, nobody expected he would have fallen and would've been made to cancel his concerts.
