Ryan Adams has cancelled his entire upcoming UK tour, amidst allegations of sexual misconduct.

All nine dates of the tour, including a night at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, have been called off.

This morning, Ticketmaster tweeted to confirm that full refunds would be processed for all ticket holders by Monday.

A number of fans had already attempted to refund their tickets, tweeting that they could no longer support the artist following the allegations.

The cancelations come two weeks after the New York Times published a report claiming that Adams had sent inappropriate messages to a teenage girl.

The FBI have since confirmed that they are investigating the texts to determine whether Adams was aware of her age.

Adams’ initially tweeted that the newspaper was “going down” in response to the article. However, he deleted the tweet before issuing an official statement calling the article “unsettlingly inaccurate”.

The New York Times has published three articles this month piecing together a number of allegations against Adams, including interviews with women who imply Adams offered them career help in return for sex, and allegations of abuse from the musician’s ex-wife, Mandy Moore.

Legendary singer Bruce Springsteen has confirmed he will play a string of concerts across the UK in 2019.

Though no confirmed shows have been announced as of yet, Springsteen recently announced it was “time to get back to my day job”, confirming his return to musical form with a new studio album with his E Street Band.

A new studio album would mean the first new material released by the artist since 2014’s “High Hopes” however “Springsteen on Broadway”, a greatest hits performance covering Bruce’s mammoth 46 year career will premiere on Netflix December 15th.

Springsteen last toured the UK in 2016, which included a stop at Glasgow’s Hampden stadium. Known for his mammoth performances, the singer played for over three hours at the famed football stadium.

Bruce and the gang will be well rehearsed for next year’s dates, currently playing five nights a week as part of the Broadway shows in New York City. Though Springsteen turns 70 next year, it seems the iconic American hero is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
