Plus Special Guests
American singer, songwriter, producer and musician Ryan Adams will be playing in Leeds at the O2 Academy on Wednesday the 25th of February 2015. Adams is a revered artist worldwide for his work as a member of Whiskeytown, as well as with The Cardinals and also for his solo material that has formed a number of albums, most of which have been critically acclaimed and celebrated.
Adams’ first solo album after leaving Whiskeytown in the year 2000 was nominated for the Shortlist Music Prize, with his second being certified Gold. These contained hit singles like ‘New York, New York’ and ‘Answering Bell’. Ryan’s most recent eponymous album is his fourteenth and sees Adams return to his rock roots, also producing the album himself for the first time. The result is an emotional glimpse into his imagination as an artist, with tracks like ‘Wrecking Ball’ and ‘Stay With Me’ making a lasting imprint.
It is this album that has spurred Ryan Adams into embarking on a world tour that is kicking off in the USA before coming over to Europe at the beginning of next year. You can expect to hear a great blend of his new material alongside the classics we all know and love. Joining Ryan will be a selection of special guests who are yet to be announced.
