Ryan Adams throws tantrum at Minneapolis show

The singer reignites his bad-boy reputation

Ryan Adams reportedly threw a tantrum during his sold-out show in Minneapolis last night (September 27).

The temperamental rocker was apparently frustrated with the sound at the State Theatre, and continuously complained about it throughout the night, moving his sound monitors, microphone and guitar peals.

After announcing his last song and not returning for an encore, several fans stood up and booed.

“I don’t know what the story was,” guitarist Neal Casal told the Minneapolis Star Tribune after the show. “I just play guitar.”

Pedal steel guitarist Jon Graboff added, “What can I say? I’m not the monitor guy. Ryan’s the boss.”

Adams had another meltdown in the city during his notorious First Avenue performance in 2003, when he criticised the sound system and local hero Paul Westerberg.
