Ryan Adams must have gone a little too hard during his performance at Sasquatch! Music Festival on Monday. The singer-songwriter tweeted a message to his followers revealing that he has sustained a broken rib.

It’s unknown exactly when or how the injury occurred, but Adams says he’s not going to postpone any tour dates as of now. However, his setlist may have to undergo some alterations, as he admits that playing harmonica makes his whole body want “to throw up a fireball of pain.”

Adams is scheduled to take the stage at Victoria, British Colombia’s Royal Theatre at 8:00 p.m. local time tonight. He also has a festival show next weekend at Governors Ball, with spots at Glastonbury, Roskilde, and Fuji Rock all on the horizon. Find his full itinerary here.
