The star's illness prevents him from leaving...

The illness that has forced Ryan Adams to pull his UK tour has now prevented the singer from leaving the country.

Ryan Adams was due to headline the John Peel Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival (June 26) as well as a complete a short UK tour this week to promote his double album ’Cold Roses’.

However as previously reported on NME.COM he cancelled all his touring commitments due to an ear infection, and the same condition has now prevented him from flying home to the US, forcing him to stay in the UK and recuperate.

The last time he was in the UK Adams fell from the stage in Liverpool, smashing his left wrist and forcing him into surgery.

However on a more positive note Ryan Adams has confirmed the release date for his second album of the year.

‘Jacksonville City Nights’ which also features his band The Cardinals will be released on September 12.
