Gavin DeGraw resumes tour 15 days after was beaten and hit by car
Gavin DeGraw resumed the tour with rockers Maroon 5 and Train on Wednesday, August 24, fifteen days after he was attacked by three men an hit by a car.
On Sunday night (August 7) the singer went out for a drink, then left his friends around four o’clock in the morning. Police said several people assaulted him on the street. They cut his face and broke his nose, then run away. Gavin DeGraw rose up and as he was walking, a cab struck him.
He was admitted at Bellevue Hospital, New York, with concussion, broken nose, black eyes and cuts. Next day the rocker was released from the hospital and wrote on Twitter that he could not clearly remember the incident.
Gavin DeGraw had to interrupt the summer tour.
Several days later the artist said to VH1: “Instead of checking in from the tour, I’m writing as I recover at home.[...] I can’t wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon.”
On August 23 Gavin DeGraw told People that he was healing fine. He had a swollen face and some fractures in cheekbone, eyes and nose, but two weeks later everything would return to normal, just a mark from stitches on the nose would remain. Almost everything because Gavin said he had a different sensation breathing through his nose and the concussion had caused him memory troubles and dizziness.
“I had a night off, and I met up with some friends at the bar I own with my brother. We had a few drinks. I put my friends in a cab and I walked home because I live pretty close. I remember maybe three guys said something to me and I didn’t appreciate it, and I guess I let them know I didn’t appreciate it. They weren’t exactly on the debate team, so I ended up with a tube down my throat,” Gavin DeGraw said.
He said he had not been drunk, he just had had a few drinks with his friends at the bar he owns with his brother Joey, “The National Underground”, in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Police will analyze the footage of the crossroad (6th Street and First Avenue) where Gavin was beaten and hit by a taxi, but probably it will take a while until the attackers will be found.
Gavin next concerts will take place in Syracuse, Holmdel and Orlando.
In May Gavin DeGraw launched “Not Over You” single and another album, “Sweeter”, is scheduled to be released on September this year.
