NEW YORK — Enrique Iglesias is undergoing reconstructive hand surgery after his fingers were sliced during a recent concert.

His representative said in a statement to The Associated Press that surgery on the 40-year-old singer will be completed Monday.

Iglesias sliced some of his fingers when he grabbed a drone during a concert in Tijuana, Mexico, on Saturday. He was “semi-treated” at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding. He performed an additional 30 minutes and was then rushed to a hospital.

His representative said “thank you to all for your concern and good wishes… We appreciate all your wishes and prayers.”

Iglesias’ next show will be July 3 in Mexico City.
