Despite his “cancellation,” things are looking good for Ryan Adams. After selling out the Carnegie Hall, he has just announced two other shows on the east coast: the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Wednesday, May 18th, and the Shubert Theatre in Boston on Friday, May 20th.
The presale for both shows is happening today, and the presale password is GOLD.
Yesterday, Ryan Adams also announced the release of another album, “Chris,” with the simple caption: “TOMORROW.” So far, the album, which was named after his late brother, is not on streaming platforms yet, but it could become available at midnight. Since the big publicity machine is not working for everything regarding Ryan Adams, it’s difficult to get more details but this is what fans have speculated.
The art cover shows a couple (Ryan’s grandparents? They look a bit too old to be his parents) kissing in front of a birthday cake while two little boys are smiling on each side of the table; they must be Ryan and his brother. Chris Adams died in 2017, on the day the Prisoner Tour ended, after a long battle with a disease that is rumored to be complications from alcoholism.
“Chris” is the last installation in the trilogy that includes the intimate “Wednesdays,” and the ‘80s-inspired “Big Colors.” The three albums were supposed to be released in 2019 before Adams’s universe collapsed when the misconduct allegations were made public in the infamous NY Times article. The tracklist has not been revealed yet, but the song “Chris” will obviously be featured on this new recording.
Two more shows are obviously very good news for fans, although this is only happening on the east coast so far. What about Los Angeles? I wonder when a US tour starts because this has to be the next step.
