Ryan Adams Breaks Wrist

European tour dates cancelled

January 23, 2004 12:00 AM ET

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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
