Ryan Adams Premieres New Material In London

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”.

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
Let It Ride
