Ryan Adams Breaks Rib, Continues to Tour
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.
