Ryan Adams Cancels Tour

Wrist injury forces singer-songwriter off road

January 30, 2004 12:00 AM ET

Ryan Adams has cancelled his thirteen-date U.S. tour due to a broken wrist he suffered in a stage fall last week in England.

Adams lost his footing during the last song of a performance at the Royal Court Theater in Liverpool on January 22nd, falling six feet from the stage and fracturing his left wrist. Twelve European dates were nixed through February 10th.

The singer-songwriter will undergo surgery next week. Recuperation and physical therapy time forced him to call off the American dates, which were to begin March 2nd in Columbia, Missouri.

Adams had planned to support 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.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
