Sydney, Australia (CNN) -- Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett fell off a concert stage and was injured at the end of a show in Sydney, Australia, Wednesday night, according to his manager.

Buffett, 64, spent a day in Sydney's St. Vincent's Hospital, but he was released on Thursday, according to a statement posted on his website.

While the hospital would not release details of his treatment, an announcer on Buffett's Sirius XM channel "Radio Margaritaville" said he received several

stitches for a cut to his head.

He misjudged where the stage ended because of footlights, the announcer said.
