Ryan Adams: prolific singer-songwriter brings rock-star swagger to the UK this September
One of the most popular artists to emerge from the American country scene in the nineties, Ryan Adams has gone on to write, produce and release a catalog of critically acclaimed material in a prestigious 20-year solo career. From his melodic, evergreen debut Heartbreaker (2000), to his most recent – and excellent – album Prisoner (2017), Adams has a rare ability to produce high-quality, critically acclaimed albums on a prolific basis.
After again thrilling crowds with a brilliant set of classics ("New York, New York"; "Come Pick Me Up"; "Everybody Knows") and new material during his epic 21-song set at this year's Green Man festival, Adams is taking his Prisoner tour around the UK this autumn.
The mercurial rocker will play 11 shows across the UK and Ireland throughout September, including Manchester, London and Edinburgh. He'll also stop at: Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Gateshead, Leeds, Bournemouth and Cambridge – meaning rock fans up and down the country (and on both sides of the Irish Sea) will have a chance to see Ryan Adams live.

Ryan Adams: heartfelt rocker back to his best with brilliant 2017 album Prisoner
Ryan Adams is perhaps the hardest working man in music. Since leaving the band Whiskeytown (with whom he released three records) and going solo in 2000, Adams has turned out roughly an album a year. As well as 16 studio albums; he has posted around eleven albums worth of material under various pseudonyms on his website; written two books of poetry and short stories; and produced albums for the likes of Willie Nelson, Fall Out Boy and Jesse Malin.
Debut Heartbreaker was praised for its songwriting and possessed a maturity that had perhaps been missing from Whiskeytown records. Follow up Gold (2001) produced the hit "New York, New York" and received two Grammy nominations: Best Rock Album and Best Male Rock Vocal for the single.
Elton John credited third album Demolition (2002) as being an inspiration on his own recent music, before Adams released three albums in 2005 – Cold Roses and Jacksonville City Nights were both backed by his new band the Cardinals, while 29 was a sombre piano effort. 2007's Easy Tiger was his highest charting album to date, though the critically acclaimed, hugely popular Prisoner (2017) could yet become Adams' greatest success.
Admitting that the album's material was largely fueled by his divorce from singer and actress Mandy Moore – as is evident on the singles "Do You Still Love Me?" and "To Be Without You" – Adams said: "For me, the big shadow illuminating things for fans will be that this record is directly related to my divorce, and to what was going on inside me – how I endured it and where I was in my emotions at that time – and they wouldn’t be wrong."
