The Baltimore Sun

Gavin DeGraw was hospitalized Sunday after being attacked in New York City. But his management does not yet know what will become of his touring schedule, which includes a stop in August at Merriweather Post Pavilion.

DeGraw was "attacked by a group of assailants" Sunday in New York City and had to be hospitalized at Bellevue Hospital for "a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises," according to a statement released by his publicity firm Rogers & Cowan.

Police don't know yet what motivated the attack, or who was responsible.An investigation is underway.

It's also not clear when the singer will be released or if he'll be able to honor upcoming performance commitments.

DeGraw was scheduled to open for Maroon 5 and Train at Merriweather Post Pavilion August 24 to promote new album "Sweeter."

But Rogers & Cowan does not yet have information from the singer's management about upcoming shows and other promotion for the new album, said publicist Cara Hutchison.

Merriweather Post Pavilion has also not been notified of any changes to the bill. Even if DeGraw cancels, it's unlikely the headlining concert would.

Update 4:22 p.m.: Looks like DeGraw's management is taking a day-to-day approach to the tour. The singer just released a statement cancelling showsin Wantagh, NY on August 12 and on August 13 at Mansfield, MA.
