The Irish singer, who is renowned for his boozy antics, was rushed to hospital for treatment to the painful injury on Wednesday (26Aug15).
The incident was announced by his partner Victoria Mary Clarke, who tweeted on Friday (28Aug15), "Just to say thanks to everyone who sent messages to #shanemacgowan he is grateful! Cranky, but recovering! Fell and broke his pelvis."
Clarke later wrote on Facebook.com that the wildman rocker had been trying to show off on the dancefloor and took an awkward tumble.
She added, "He is really moved and is feeling a whole lot better already, thanks to everyone thinking about him!"
