    Singer Gavin DeGraw has canceled eight more performances because his doctor advised him he needs more time to recover from injuries he received when assaulted in the East Village this week.

    A statement from his publicist said DeGraw will not perform his next eight concert dates. Those include:

    • Bethlehem, Pa. on Aug. 14
    • Hershey, Pa. on Aug. 15
    • Nashville, Tenn. on Aug. 17
    • Indianapolis on Aug. 18
    • Des Moines, Iowa on Aug. 19
    • Chicago on Aug. 20
    • Clarkston, Mich. on Aug. 21
    • Toronto on Aug. 22

    DeGraw plans to rejoin Train and Maroon 5 in Columbia, Md. on Aug. 24.

    He was released from the hospital Tuesday after being assaulted early Monday morning in the East Village.

    DeGraw told police that several white and Hispanic men assaulted him as he left a restaurant, causing a broken nose and a fracture to the bone around his eye.

    He then made his way to 19th Street and First Avenue, where he was struck by a cab. He was not seriously hurt from that incident.

    A source says the "I Don't Want to Be" singer was highly intoxicated, which is complicating the investigation.

    DeGraw did not initially report the assault to police, who learned of the attack only after being called by staff at Bellevue Hospital.
