Easy Tiger pleases fans, in a stripped down affair

TAGS:

Supporting his forthcoming album, “Easy Tiger”, Ryan Adams and his backing band The Cardinals, played in a sold out venue in Camden last night (June 7).

Ryan Adams had initially planned to unveil his ninth album, out June 25, in Stonehenge, but due to the potential safety risk he rescheduled to play in Koko and at Manchester University.

In a set that lasted a little over an hour, Adams sang, “Two”, “Rip-Off” and “I Taught Myself How To Grow Old” from his new album and the crowd pleasers “My Winding Wheel” and “Goodnight Hollywood Blvd”.

Following his interview in the latest Uncut issue, Adams said: “I’m not interested in making solo records…I’m into being in a band,” and he certainly took on that role, playing a stripped down gig where he swapped the guitar for Ray-Ban sunglasses while he sat on level with the Cardinals.

The full set list was:

Games

Omg

Blue Hotel

Sun Also

Nightbirds

I Taught Myself

Carolina Rain

Dear John

Pearls

Goodnight hblvd

Rip Off

How Do You Keep

Two

I See Monsters

Starlite Diner
