Enrique Iglesias is back at it.

The Spanish singer returned to the stage over the weekend, marking his first public appearance since he injured his hand with a drone last month.

Iglesias hit the stage for a special concert for more than 15,000 U.S. troops and their family members at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma on Saturday night. In a tweet the day before, the singer said it would be free.

According to Billboard, the 40-year-old singer had on a special brace and bandage as his hand is not fully healed.

After the concert, Iglesias shared a photo of the crowd, thanking them for an "amazing show."

Iglesias made headlines earlier this month when he injured his hand during a concert in Tijuana on May 30. He had reached up to hold a camera-bearing drone to give the audience a “point-of-view” shot from his perspective on stage.

It was a stunt he’d done every night of his tour, but something went wrong. One of the drone’s propellers sliced into his right hand’s middle finger, fracturing it and cutting off a flap of skin.

Despite the severity of the accident, Iglesias continued performing with a makeshift bandage. He was later flown to Los Angeles for surgery.

Iglesias is expected to resume his tour on July 3 for three consecutive nights at Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional.
