American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams broke his wrist in a fall from the stage during a gig in Liverpool, his publicist said today (Jan. 23). Adams, 29, plunged from the stage during a concert last night at Liverpool's Royal Court Theater. Fans said Adams struggled to continue the show before retiring, clutching his arm.

A spokesman for the Royal Liverpool University Hospital confirmed Adams had been treated for a fracture to his arm.

The office of publicist Richard Wootton said Adams was to be examined today by a specialist in London. The publicist said it was too early to say whether the rest of the tour would be canceled.

Adams began a British tour Jan. 17 in support of his latest album, "Rock 'n' Roll" (Lost Highway) and two recently released EPs, "Love is Hell parts 1 and 2."
