News: Ryan Adams Announces Tour Dates

2 min read

(AUS) Frontier Touring have announced that Ryan Adams along with his band The Shining will treat Australia and New Zealand to headline shows this July, joined by very special guest Jenny Lewis for all Australian shows. This will be Adams’ first tour of Australia and New Zealand since 2012’s acclaimed sold-out “Ashes and Fire” solo theatre tour and his first time playing here with a full band in six years.

Adams’ diverse and prolific career has seen the release of fourteen albums since his breakthrough solo debut in 2000. Dabbling in punk, rock, folk and indie – whilst staying true to his alt-country roots, nine of his fourteen albums have placed in the Top 100 of the ARIA Album Charts.

Along the way, Adams has also collected numerous Grammy nominations, including the three he received this year for the aptly named Ryan Adams (out now through PAX AM Records). The album’s lead single – ‘Gimme Something Good,’ was the first vinyl single ever to reach #1 on the Amazon Chart.

As well as the release of the full-length album, Adams more recently announced a 6-disc Live At Carnegie Hall vinyl box including complete recordings of his two sold-out solo acoustic shows from November, 2014. Additionally, Adams continues to release singles as part of the PAX AM Single Series including ‘Jacksonville,’ ‘Vampires,’ ‘Do You Laugh When You Lie,’ ‘No Shadow,’ and ‘Blue Light.’

Joining Ryan Adams on his tour of Australia will be singer-songwriter and ex-Rilo Kiley front-woman Jenny Lewis. Lewis last toured Australia as part of indie duo Jenny & Johnny in 2011.

Shortly after the release of Lewis’ 2014 album The Voyager, which was produced by Adams, the pair announced a tour of California together. Adams even covered Lewis’ track ‘She’s Not Me’ on the tour. No stranger to working together in both a songwriting and live context, don’t miss the opportunity to see the duo bring their unique collaborative force to Australian shores for the first time.
