Ryan Adams cancels UK and Ireland tour
In the wake of the allegations surrounding Ryan Adams, the Jacksonville singer-songwriter today, cancelled his UK and Ireland tour.
Earlier in February, allegations arose of sexual harassment by Ryan Adams. His UK and Ireland tour was set to start this month but the American has now cancelled the tour.
Ryan Adams made headlines for the wrong reasons when the New York Times reported that the singer offered female artists a chance to boost their careers. In return the singer allegedly, would pursue them sexually and if turned away, would turn on them.
Adams’ tour of the UK and Ireland was set to start at the Olympia in Dublin on March 31st but now won’t go ahead. Big Colours, which was meant to be released on April 19th but his label Pax AM, have delayed it indefinitely.
As well as his latest album being put on hold, two musical equipment companies have ended their partnership with the ‘Gimme Something Good’ singer.
Adams ex-wife Mandy Moore, came forward to the New York Times, claiming how the singer was abusive during their six year marriage. Something that Ryan Adams has also denied on Twitter.
Some fans had already sought out a refund when the allegations initially surfaced. Now MCD Promotions, in charge of Adams’ Irish date, released a statement confirming the tour’s cancellation:
“The Ryan Adams UK & Ireland tour has been cancelled. Full refunds to ticket purchasers from authorised outlets will be processed by end of day on Monday. Please allow time for the repayment transaction to hit your account.”
When the claims first surfaced, Adams tweeted, “to anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally.” The American has denied all allegations made against him.
