February 22, 2001

STUTTGART, Germany (AP) _ Robbie Williams suffered bruises but was otherwise uninjured after a man pushed the pop star from the stage during a concert, a spokesman for his record label said Thursday.

The former Take That star fell just over 5 feet into the pit below the stage during his concert in Stuttgart Wednesday night, after a young man who police said was psychologically disturbed got onto the stage and pushed him from behind.

Williams picked himself up and returned to the stage, said Frank Bender, a spokesman for EMI records. After a few jokes, he continued the concert.

``He will continue the tour as planned on Friday in Paris,″ Bender said.

It was unclear how the young man, whose name was withheld, got onto the stage, police said.
