He was forced to cancel a concert Tuesday in Saratoga Springs, New York and other upcoming performances.

The singer posted on his Twitter page, “Honestly, I don’t remember much. I only know I can recover from here.” DeGraw told the police he vaguely recalls at least two men jumping him after he left National Underground, the East Houston Street bar he co-own with his brother.

Law enforcement sources said the attackers, who had no idea he was a multi-platinum singer, jumped DeGraw at 4:00 a.m ET on Monday and did no rob him.

Disoriented after the attack, DeGraw staggered in the direction of Beth Israel Hospital but fell on top of a stopped taxi. The cab sped away before on bystander called 911.

DeGraw’s brother, Joseph, insisted that Gavin “had nothing but cranberry juice to drink,” and his Twitter message referred to his concussion.

DeGraw was moved from Bellevue to NYU Hospital late Tuesday for surgery on his broken nose.
