And some European ones. On this provincial day for the UK, NME report: “Ryan Adams has added more dates in the UK and Europe to his upcoming 2017 ‘Prisoner’ tour. Full dates and ticket details are below. In support of his acclaimed new album ‘Prisoner‘, Adams has now added two new shows in Warrington and Leamington Spa in March, along with two more in Bournemouth and Cambridge in September. Tickets to the new shows are on sale at 9am on March 31.
“For me, the big shadow illuminating things for fans will be that this record is directly related to my divorce [from Mandy Moore], 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,” Adams told NME about the new album. “I didn’t want to make a mistake and avoid it…I believe in art, and it sounds so stupid – but I think it’s more stupid to pretend that things aren’t happening to you and write some bland fucking useless bullshit.”
As well as headlining Green Man Festival alongside Future Islands and PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams’ upcoming UK tour dates are below. Tickets are on sale here.
