News travels fast since our story, er, half an hour ago. The Royal Albert Hall has just tweeted that “The Ryan Adams UK & Ireland tour has been cancelled. Full refunds to ticket purchasers from authorised outlets will be processed by end of day on Monday. Please allow time for the repayment transaction to hit your account.” So there you go, no boycotts needed after all.
Interesting piece in The Guardian today following the overnight news that Ryan Adams has been dropped from 6 Music’s Festival, which speaks to a number of his fans about his forthcoming UK tour which is as of this morning still going ahead. One of the interviewees tells them: “I can’t imagine it’s going to be anything other than a disaster or a total circus. Continue reading “Ryan Adams fans in the UK speak out: “I won’t go whether I sell them or not””
NME, the BBC and a variety of outlets are reporting this morning that Ryan Adams’ forthcoming tour looks like it’s still happening for now, so if you’re after a refund after hearing about the recent revelations, you probably won’t have much luck – or not yet anyway. NME is reporting: “While it was reported that the upcoming release of album ‘Big Colors’ had been cancelled, his UK and Ireland tour dates (including two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall) are still currently set to take place.

Variety has reported over the weekend that although Ryan Adams recently announced the release of three new albums due out this year, that number looks to be rapidly shrinking: “The first of his planned 2019 releases, “Big Colors,” which was to have come out April 19, has been “put on hold,” according to sources close to the situation. Continue reading “Ryan Adams album cancelled following allegations”
Ryan Adams has been sharing clips of new songs from his forthcoming album ‘Big Colors’ which is due in April. In a series of video clips with a kind of retro theme, fans can hear tracks from the album (or bits of them) including ‘Dreaming You Backwards’, ‘Showtime’, and ‘Summer Rain’. which features Bob Mould no less. Here they are: Continue reading “Ryan Adams posts Instagram teasers for new album”
We have no problem with the word “F*ck” – we’ll say it lower down this article – but realise our Mailmunch daily update might plonk a NSFW email in lots of people’s inboxes, hence the temporary reversion to Mary Whitehouse (ask your dad) style piousness. Continue reading “Ryan Adams releases new single “F*ck the Rain” – Listen”
Well this is good news – inspired obviously by our story we posted last week reminding Ryan Adams of the time he fell off the stage and broke his arm during a gig, he has announced details of a UK tour which hits our shores in April, just in time for armegeddon.

Ryan Adams has debuted a new song from his forthcoming album ‘Big Colors’ – the track entitled “Manchester” starts with the line “Oldham streets/Built to bruise/Freckled face/And a pair of shuffling shoes”. Ryan Adams singing about Oldham – imagine. XS Manchester premiered the track, and Adams said: “Manchester, the city and music of this mystical place shaped my entire life. It is at the heart of all the things I love about music from The Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis, New Order, Simply Red and The Stone Roses. I wanted to make sure this song ‘Manchester’ played first and only in this city I love so much. I hope you enjoy this and cannot wait to be back soon.” You might love Manchester Ryan but did it give you a broken arm like Liverpool? We always go the extra mile.
Update: This track now seems to have disappeared so instead enjoy the other new track from his forthcoming album, ‘Doylestown Girl’:
There was a time in years gone by when we used to write about Ryan Adams on AUK as much as we do about Neil Young now. He was our go-to guy, partly because he was always doing something interesting (like falling off stage mid-set here in Liverpool and breaking an arm) and partly because he was releasing records like they were part of a quarterly subscription service. Anyway, old times are back it seems, as Adams tweeted yesterday: Continue reading “Three new Ryan Adams albums on the way this year”
An interesting story up on Consequence of Sound this morning where they mull over the various Ryan Adams going on at the moment. As they note, “Ryan Adams dropped two new songs over the last few weeks, both related to Colorado media outlets. The first was a tribute to radio station 105.5 The Colorado Sound, while the second was penned in exchange for a weather forecasting gig for news channel Denver 7. Adams is apparently still very much in the giving spirit, as today he took to Twitter to tease the release of more than four different projects, including 17 all-new songs as well as his long-lost Blackhole album.
