Fans have eagerly awaited news on his condition, and the post served as a reassuring message in which he also expressed his gratitude for their unwavering support during this challenging time.

If you’re wondering what happened, on March 13, the drummer was attacked by 19-year-old Max Edward Hartley while smoking outside of his hotel after a show in South Florida, which was co-headlined by Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe.

He was later arrested and charged with his crimes in addition to the musician’s sworn statement to the police, expressing his intention to prosecute him, ensuring that justice would be served.

On the other side, this shocking event left fans concerned for the drummer’s wellbeing. Luckily, about a week after the attack, Allen issued his first statement via Twitter, revealing his condition and thanking fans for their support. He also mentioned that he was focusing on healing at that time and appreciated the outpouring of love from his fans.

In his recent Facebook post, the 59-year-old rocker updated fans on his recovery progress with a picture of himself smiling, showcasing his resilience and positive attitude. He also thanked fans for their continued support and informed them that he was working on recovering both physically and mentally to be ready for the upcoming Def Leppard tour.

His heartfelt Facebook post read:
