Stonehenge show pulled

Ryan Adams has been forced to cancel his July 5 Stonehenge concert after English Heritage withdrew permission for the show because of the unprecedented demand for tickets exceeded capacity.

Organisers of the Salisbury Festival – of which the Stonehenge event would have been part – were further worried about Adams’ fans causing traffic congestion around the festival site, concern over ‘gatecrashers’ trying to gain access to the sold-out festival as well as other ‘technical’ issues.

Ryan’s new album, Easy Tiger, meanwhile, has been confirmed for a June 25 release by Lost Highway.

There are no current plans for alternative appearances this year by Adams.
