Ryan Adams tickets onsale right now for new Edinburgh show (30th Oct)

As Smokey Cat points out on RAA – Ryan is scheduled to play the Eugene Oregon in the USA on this date (and Seattle the following day)

Date Warning? Ryan is playing in USA on the 20th and 21st of October so how can he be playing Edinburgh on the 20th October? Concord don’t work anymore!



Not sure what that means for the 20th October Edinburgh date that SeeTickets are selling for?!

It looks like the Edinburgh date should be listed as 30th Oct, not the 20th (see pclpresents.com for confirmation (thanks to ACT on RAA for the info)


Tickets have gone onsale this morning through SeeTickets for a new Ryan Adams UK date in Scotland!

Edinburgh Festival Theatre
Thursday 20th October 2011 at 7pm

Ryan Adams European Tour limited edition 7″ vinyl


Ryan is selling a limited edition double A-side 7" vinyl on this European tour – Empty Room/Nutshell (Nutshell is an Alice In Chains cover).

The price in London was £10 (and I think it was 20 Euros at the Scandanavian shows). For some reason the merchandise stall at the London show was buried away upstairs in the Barbican shop (Jesse Malin had his stall outside the venue doors downstairs).

T-shirts were £20 and there were 3 designs (Acoustic Nightmare, PAX-AM and Mountaineering)

I was lucky enough to get my vinyl signed by Ryan in Manchester this afternoon whilst he and Jesse (and possibly Mandy?) were browsing Cafe Pop in the Northern Quarter :)
Had my camera with me, but decided not to trouble him for a photo.

After 10 European concerts I’ve updated the setlist spreadsheet:

In total Ryan’s played 52 different songs (including 9 new songs) – plus 6 improvised/made-up songs on the spot.

Ryan Adams European tour setlists so far (v2)

With 6/15 European shows now complete, we take another look at the setlist song distribution…

The Malmo show had an incredible 8 new songs (5 of which were debuted on the night). At present the song titles are unclear, although on the RAA forum they’ve been given tentative names along with a few lyrics.

Next stop for Ryan is two shows in Portugal – Lisbon tonight (Thursday 16th June) and Porto tomorrow (Friday 17th June)

Ryan Adams European tour setlists so far

Over the four dates in Europe so far (Cork, Dublin, Stockholm and Oslo) Ryan has played 37 different songs (if we’re including the improvised Animal Jail/Chopsticks and Mr. Man?).

Constants throughout the four shows have been ‘Desire‘, ‘Everybody Knows‘, ‘If I Am A Stranger‘, ‘Let It Ride‘, ‘Sylvia Plath‘ and opener ‘Oh My Sweet Carolina‘.

He’s played three times: ‘16 Days‘, ‘Blue Hotel‘, ‘Damn, Sam (I Love A Woman That Rains)‘, ‘Firecracker‘, ‘New York New York‘ and ‘Please Do Not Let Me Go‘.

New song ‘Invisible Riverside‘ has been played once so far (in Stockholm) – it was also played back in April at the Emmylou Harris support show (El Rey, Los Angeles).

I think ‘Ashes And Fire‘ is also new (Cork), and ‘Dirty Rain‘ which was played at both Irish shows (Cork/Dublin).

Ryan has been playing some Whiskeytown songs too on this tour: ‘16 Days‘, ‘Avenues‘, ‘Dancing With The Women At The Bar‘ and ‘House On The Hill‘ from The Strangers Almanac.

Next up on tour is Malmo (Sweden) followed by Copenhagen (Denmark) and then two shows in Portugal (Lisbon, Porto) – before Ryan finally hits the United Kingdom on Sunday :)

Thanks to the posters on RAA for all the setlist info. Please leave a comment if I’ve made any mistakes above.
