Fiona Apple walked off stage after only a 40-minute set in New York on Tuesday, apparently because of frustrations with the sound system. A spokesperson for the Roseland Ballroom said the singer played eight songs, including her new single "Limp," before telling the crowd she was taking a "five-minute break." The singer never returned and later reportedly said she could not hear her own voice and did not want to give a subpar show. Apple also performed "Limp," from her 1999 album When The Pawn ... on Wednesday night on CBS-TV's "Late Show With David Letterman."
