The star is rushed to hospital after the incident in Liverpool...
Ryan Adams has suffered a suspected broken wrist after falling off stage in LIVERPOOL last night (January 22).
The singer was playing a show at the Liverpool Royal Court when the incident happened. Fans at the show say Ryan Adams fell six feet towards the end of the set. He tried to continue, but was unable to because of the pain.
He was later taken to the nearby Royal Liverpool Hospital for treatment. He will see a specialist today in London.
A fan at the show told NME.COM: “After one hour 40 minutes Ryan Adams was not about to stop…..until he fell off the front of the stage that is, mid song. The band carried on and finished the song with Ryan Adams being helped up onto the stage and then walking straight off. At the end of the song, his drummer announced that Ryan Adams had broken his wrist and it would probably be their last show for a while. “
A statement on his official website reads: “This evening in Liverpool at the Royal Court Theatre during the last song of the set Ryan fell off the end of the stage (6 foot drop) and broke his left wrist. He was looking up while singing and did not see the edge of the stage. He was taken to a hospital in Liverpool where he will stay overnight. They will set it in the morning and go to directly to London to see a specialist. There is no more information at this time. We will give you more information as we get it.”
It’s unclear how the rest of the tour will be affected. NME.COM understands the rest of the European tour, including UK shows, are all in serious doubt.
