A woman is reportedly fighting for her life after suffering a horrific fall while attending a Robbie Williams concert.

The woman, who is believed to be in her 70s, is currently in an induced coma at Sydney's St Vincent’s Hospital following her tragic accident at Allianz Stadium in Moore Park, News.com.au has reported.

The incident occurred on Thursday night on the opening night of Williams's XXV Australian Tour. Reports indicate that the woman had attempted to climb over several rows of seats before slipping and tumbling down six rows, resulting in critical head and face injuries.

A NSW Ambulance spokesperson confirmed their team's swift response, stating: "Last night we attended Allianz Stadium. We were called in to reports of a woman in her 70s who had fallen. We treated her on scene for injuries to her face and head and took her to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition."

As of now, the woman remains in intensive care, with St Vincent’s Hospital spokesperson confirming that she is in a critical condition. The NSW Police have been informed of the incident and are monitoring the woman’s hospitalization.

In the wake of the accident, a Venues NSW spokesperson revealed the immediate assistance provided to the woman. "The patron was attended to immediately by venue staff and a nearby guest who is a qualified medical professional," the spokesperson stated to The Daily Telegraph. "Medics arrived shortly after, and the patron was taken from the venue by ambulance to hospital. We are working with NSW Police and will provide further updates as they become available."

This tragic turn of events unfolded amidst a significant turnout at the Sydney stadium, with nearly 40,000 fans gathered for the former Take That star's concert. The 90s pop icon is on his first Australian tour since 2018, with upcoming performances scheduled in Queensland, Victoria, and concluding in Swan Valley, WA, on December 1.

Following the concert, Robbie took to Instagram to thank his fans for their support.

He wrote in a post: "I'm very lucky to be loved as much as I am *by my audience* But Sydney was the most I think I’ve ever received. I’ll store it in my heart for the bumpy nights."

In another post, he added: "Sydney: that was an unforgettable evening, thank you - I love you, Australia."

As Robbie's tour continues, it comes shortly after the release of the new Netflix documentary on his life, which delves into the life of the man behind the chart-topping hits like 'Angels' and 'Rock DJ', as well as his personal struggles with fame.
