My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James was injured last night at a concert at the University of Iowa after accidentally falling from the stage. According to the Des Moines Register, James slipped and fell off the stage about 30 minutes into the band's concert. James injured his head on the fall, forcing the remainder of MMJ's performance to be cancelled and ultimately sending James to the University Hospitals in Iowa City, where he was treated and released. The actual severity of the injury is unknown, but James also cancelled a scheduled Barack Obama benefit concert tonight in Chicago.
