The singer stopped his performance to say to the fan:
Hi, my name is Ryan and I have Ménière’s Disease. If you flash me with your camera, it feels like you took a lightsaber and you sliced my brain in half.
The rant was followed by cheers from the audience but Adams apologized for his outburst before the concert ended.
