Phil Collins is seen for the first time as he returned to the stage in Germany with a plaster covering a two inch cut.
The 66-year-old received a standing ovation as he performed in front of 16,000 people at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne days after a bad fall last week forced him to postpone his last two concerts in London.
Collins was seen with a big plaster covering a long deep cut just above his left eye as he opened the show with his famous song Against All Odds.
A post on his official Facebook site said last week: "He rose in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and slipped in his hotel room, hitting his head in the fall on a chair.
"He was taken to hospital where he had stitches for a severe gash on his head close to his eye and is recovering well."
His actress daughter Lily, 28, however reassured his worried fans on Friday , telling an interviewer that her singer dad 'is doing good' at the premiere of her new film Okja.
His fall came just days after the star was forced to remain seated throughout his performances at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The former Genesis drummer, who is recovering after back surgery, had to even sit out his iconic drumming - passing the batons, or rather sticks, to teen son Nic.
The Mirror told last week how he suffers from condition 'drop foot', which makes it hard for him to walk.
Collins was also left with nerve damage and as a result, is unable to drum.
But despite his ill health, he announced last year of his plans to come out of retirement to embark on the solo tour.
