Dramatic singer/songwriter Ryan Adams surprised many of his fans yesterday by posting a note on his blog explaining that his days as a member of the Cardinals are finished after the band’s upcoming tour. Besides selling a bunch of tickets for the “final shows” – I bought ducats for the Montclair show – Ryan depressed the hell out of his fanbase.
Adams took to his Cardinal Cave blog once again this morning to explain the reasoning behind his decision to quit the band…
FOR CARDSFANS AND FAM- Peace-Out!! R XO
THERE WILL BE NO CANCELLED SHOWS AND THIS CARDINALS TOUR WILL HAPPEN AS PLANNED SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND I AM JUST SHARING THIS NOW SO THAT IN A FEW DAYS OR LESS IT WILL BE NO PROBLEM AND NOT INTERFERE WITH HAVING A PEACEFUL TOUR AND A NICE TIME PLAYING THE GIGS BOOKED.
FOR CARDINALS FANS and FAM,
I am very sorry if my blog post concerning my need to walk away for however long from cardinals( and from doing music related to the music i have made during my solo career and during my very long and substantially frustrating time at my former label ) was alarming or shocking or seemed off base. it was not my intention to be dramatic. I feel like i am entitled to my feelings and that i certainly do not deserve to be further ridiculed for my deteriorating inner ear issues and the physical pain that goes along with that.
