Prolific alt.rock singer/songwriter Ryan Adams has confirmed that he will be taking the opportunity to play a special album launch show at Stonehenge this Summer.

The show on June 5 will be one of the few times a gig has been set in this gloriously pagan Wiltshire setting, and is part of the Salisbury International Art Festival.

Ryan Adams has continued to record on several projects this year - putting together the final touches for latest - and ninth - studio album "Easy Tiger" which is due for release on the same day as the Stonehenge show.

The follow up to 2006's "29" has the following confirmed tracklisting, revealed this week:

'Goodnight Rose'
'Everybody Knows'
'The Sun Also Sets'
'Halloween Head'
'Off Broadway'
'Two Hearts'
'Tears Of Gold'
'These Girls'
'Two'
'I Taught Myself How To Grow Old'
'Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.'
'Rip Off'
'Pearls On A String'

Tickets for the intimate show are very limited and avaialble by special arrangement only.

Terms and conditions of purchase will be confirmed and tickets issued in April, though fans can register their interest in attending by emailing marketing@salisburyfestival.co.uk.
