Singer-songwriter 'wants to throw up a fireball of pain' but has vowed to continue
Ryan Adams has vowed to complete his tour despite breaking a rib.
Following his appearance at Sasquatch! Music Festival on Monday (May 26), the singer-songwriter sent a series of tweets regarding the injury. “My body wants to throw up a fireball of pain,” he said in one post, along with an Instagram picture from a clinic.
Adams’ upcoming live schedule will include spots at Glastonbury, Roskilde and Fuji Rock.
Ryan Adams covered the similarly named singer at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on April 28. The rendition was in reference to an incident at the same venue 13 years prior when an audience member yelled a request for the song for Adams’ entire solo set. Adams later told Spin that such hecklers were “a bunch of fucking cocks”, adding, “They come to my shows just to provoke me. I had to go into therapy because of whole Bryan Adams ‘Summer Of ’69’ thing.”
Later, Bryan Adams spoke to SF Gate about the incident, promising to cover a Ryan Adams track in return. “Ryan [Adams] wrote to me to tell me the day before that he was going to do it,” he said. “I think it was some sort of cathartic release for him to return to that venue and play that song, as you probably know the story there. So I think in some ways, he has been haunted by the song somewhat, which is a shame because it’s a really great song. Anyway, I’m happy he did it. He’s a great artist. And sure I’d sing one of his songs. I’m not sure which one, though.”
