Following his set at this weekend's Sasquatch! Music Festival, Adams has given new meaning to the phrase "Starting to Hurt," revealing via social media that he had sustained a broken rib.
Instagramming from the doctor's office, Adams vowed to make it to his scheduled shows regardless of the diagnosis.
I think I have a broken rib. When I exhale into the harmonica my whole body wants to throw up a fireball of pain. Oh man— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) May 26, 2015
And that diagnosis was indeed a broken rib.
Let's find out if it's broken. Either way I'm playing the shows. Getting in my bunk is brutal tho. https://t.co/WUz8E2v2Ih— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) May 27, 2015
A painful one.
It's broken. lol— Ryan Adams (@TheRyanAdams) May 27, 2015
Despite the pain, though, Adams will continue with his upcoming North American tour dates for now — including a show tonight (May 27) in Vancouver. Don't expect the setlist to be too harmonica-heavy, though.
