Enrique Iglesias suffers mid-concert drone injury

Enrique Iglesias finished a performance in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday night, despite badly cutting his finger on a drone filming his performance.

The singer was injured when he attempted to grab the drone out of the air – apparently a regular part of his show – but misjudged it all somehow. His hand was bandaged and he performed the remainder of the concert before being flown to LA to see a doctor. Which seems a bit extravagant, but hey.

In a statement, a rep for the singer told to Associated Press: “During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a point of view shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident. He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show. He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there. He was then put on a plane to LA to see a specialist”.

Iglesias’ next show will be in Mexico City on 3 Jul, where he will play two nights at the Auditorio Nacional. He is then due to play a handful of European dates in August in support of his 2014 album ‘Sex & Love’. Drone attacks permitting.
