Keith Richards was discharged from a New Zealand hospital on Thursday after having surgery to relieve a blood clot on his brain following a fall, his publicist said.
Fran Curtis said in a brief statement that the Rolling Stones guitarist, 62, would remain an outpatient at the Ascot Hospital in Auckland and would return for checkups.
Richards suffered the injury on April 27 in Fiji after reportedly falling out of a palm tree. It was unclear how long Richards would remain an outpatient.
A few days ago, reps for the Stones said Richards was "up and talking to his family" Monday afternoon only hours after undergoing the operation.
Richards, who was airlifted 1,300 miles to New Zealand for treatment, was with his wife, Patti, and several of his kids.
“He’s in good form and chatting to Patti,” a source close to the rocker told PEOPLE.
The band's "A Bigger Bang European" tour, which was scheduled to start in Barcelona, Spain, later this month, will be postponed until June.
And might I add, "What in the world was he doing up in a palm tree?"
