Ryan Adams fans have been demanding refunds after the singer was accused of sexual misconduct in a New York Times article.
Several women have accused him of physiological abuse in a recent report, in which they claim he promised to accelerate their music careers.
The FBI have announced they are looking into whether he sent explicit texts to an underage teenager, which the songwriter “unequivocally” denies.
Following the allegations, Adams’ upcoming album release has been halted, though tickets for his UK tour remain on sale.
Many fans have since expressed on social media that they don’t want to attend his shows until the allegations are proven or discounted.
One fan tweeted at Ticketmaster, one of the sellers for Adams’ tour: “@TicketmasterCS Hello, due to these Ryan Adams allegations, what’s the best course of action to get a refund?”
@RoyalAlbertHall considering the news about Ryan Adams, are you able to refund tickets for his shows in April?

In an interview with Radio 4’s You & Yours programme, New York Times European culture journalist Alex Marshall said it was “surprising” that the companies involved in the tour have been silent since the allegations were published.
“I’ve tried to speak to the ticketing companies,” he said. “I’ve tried to speak to the venues and the promoter and I’ve had very little response back.
“That’s leaving people in the dark about what’s going on.”
However, Kate Hobson, consumer expert at Citizens Advice, said, according to the BBC: “Ticket holders who change their mind for whatever reason about going to see a concert have no legal right to a refund.
“They could try reselling their ticket, but they should first check the advice on reselling on the Citizens Advice website.”
