Ryan Adams, the American singer-songwriter has cancelled his forthcoming UK and Ireland tour. The reason for this turns out to be the allegations against the musician of sexual misconduct.
A total of nine dates that include two gigs at Royal Albert Hall in London have been cancelled.
The fans have turned against the former member of the band Whiskeytown. The fans have disapproved of the artist’s behaviour saying that they could not support him anymore. They have also asked for refunds of the tickets.
Ticketmaster has tweeted confirming that full refunds will be allowed and the process is going to be initiated by the end of Monday.
Two weeks earlier, a report was published in the New York Times suggesting that the 44-year-old Adams had engaged in inappropriate sex chat with a teenage girl. However, Adams’ lawyer completely rejected this allegation claiming that his client “unequivocally denies” such activity with an under aged person.
The matter would be probed by the FBI. The bureau added that it will go through the texts and find out whether the star knew the girl’s age.
Some women have come forward with allegations revealed in the New York Times. They said that they had been offered help with their careers by Adams in exchange for sexual favours. Adams’ former wife, Mandy Moore has also accused him of psychological abuse.
In response, Adams initially tweeted that the newspaper was “going down”. Shortly after, he revised his tweet and called the article “unsettlingly inaccurate”. He also apologised to the people he had hurt “unintentionally”.
