Singer Tom Grennan Hospitalized After Attack & Robbery In New York
After a performance at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, the British pop singer Tom Grennan was attacked early Thursday morning and was badly injured and hospitalized as a result. His manager first shared the news that Grennan was attacked and indicated it was an “unprovoked attack and robbery outside a bar in Manhattan.”
Grennan recently uploaded a video to his social media pages out of hospital saying he is “all good” after the incident. “It was just wrong place wrong time and I was punched, knocked out, and I woke up, and I was like, ‘Woah, what went on?'” He confirmed that his main injuries were a ruptured eardrum and “a bit of a concussion.”
Grennan said that while he was canceling a planned show in Washington D.C. for Friday, “the show must go on and I’m gonna do all that I can to get to Boston, do the show, and do the tour and see you lot.”

The singer was lucky that his jaw wasn’t hurt worse in the attack because it’s known that he has a metal plate and screws in his jaw from when he was attacked by a group of strangers at the age of 18.
One of Grennan’s biggest singles, “Little Bit Of Love,” off his well-received 2021 album Evering Road, was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2022 Brit Awards. Grennan isn’t slowing down at all clearly and just dropped the new single “Remind Me” which you can see here.
