Gillespie, 53, slipped from the stage and fell into the crowd as Primal Scream played at Swiss music festival Caribana on June 2.

A message on the official Primal Scream Twitter account thanked fans for their support on Friday.

The Scottish band tweeted: "Thanks to everyone who has asked about Bobby. We're waiting for more news, but hoping to be back on the road as soon as we get the all clear x ."

A spokesman for Gillespie told the Press Association that he could not comment on the Scottish rocker's condition.

The incident resulted in a premature end to Primal Scream's set.

Fans posted shortly after the incident to express their concern.

One person tweeted: "Bobby Gillespie fell off the stage minutes ago. Looks bad. Hope he's OK."

Another said: "Bobby Gillespie just took a nasty looking tumble off the stage! Hope he's OK."

Primal Scream, formed in 1982, are promoting their 11th studio album Chaosmosis.

The band will be playing a number of tour dates in the UK this summer.
