Last night was the Ryan Adams show in Birmingham…. everything was going just splendid until some redneck that had one to many Budlights had to yell “shut up and play a song!!” while he was talking. Ryan being the sensitive fellow he is, played just one more song and then left the stage. No Encore! The audience was pissed. Apparently this behavior is nothing new, he has a tendency to take to heart what the audience does/says. I’ll admit some guys in the crowd were being jerks, and I was suprised to hear someone be so rude to someone they were paying to see. This was my first Ryan Adams show, and I did have good time..but for 45 bucks I needed a little more than 40 minute concert. Come on Ryan all we want is an encore!!

That’s CRAZY!! Even if his ego was a bit marred, you definitely deserved an encore–or TWO!

aww that’s soo sad, I hate it when people act like idiots at concerts or start throwing stuff on stage. I guess he needs to tougher exterior but this sort of stuff but if i was him I might have left also.

Ah, I don’t blame him for leaving. I saw Ringo Starr once, BTW, and he was awesome. He was like, “Now is the part where we’d normally go off stage and hide in a dark bathroom while you clap for a ‘surprise’ encore,but I don’t feel like doing that so here’s one last song and then that’s it.”
