Ryan Adams fell from the stage at the Royal Court Theater in Liverpool last night, breaking his left wrist.
According to Adams' Web site, he was looking up while singing the last song of his set and didn't see the edge of the stage. He fell six feet. Adams returned to the stage and tried to finish the song, but was unable to. He was taken to Royal Liverpool Hospital, where he spent last night, and then traveled this morning to London to see a specialist.
Though there is no word yet about tour date cancellations, the injury falls amid a busy period for the singer-songwriter. He was scheduled to play in Cologne, Germany, tomorrow night, one of a dozen European shows left on his tour. After those dates were to wrap on February 10th in London, Adams was scheduled to return to the U.S. for a thirteen-date tour to launch March 2nd in Columbia, Missouri.
Adams has been touring in support of a trio of late-2003 releases: the Rock N Roll album and the dual Love Is Hell, Part 1 and Love Is Hell, Part 2 EPs.
