Nice post-Thanksgiving concert news to report this morning from Ryan Adams. Ryan took to Facebook this morning to announce some tour dates that take place early in 2012 and they are quite Midwest heavy. Among the dates is a show at the Taft Theatre on January 28th. Adams latest album, Ashes & Fire has been labeled a return to form for the prolific singer/songwriter, which basically means it sounds more like Heartbreaker than previous efforts.
Overall, we think it’s a great album and can’t wait for a chance to hear some of the new material live. Not many details have come out about the tour yet, like whether Adams will be flanked by the Cardinals or another backing band or have no accompaniment at all. What we do know is that tickets are going on sale this Friday and Saturday, and we should keep an eye on the PAX-AM website in the meantime. Adams last played Cincinnati in 2008 at the Taft. Here are all the dates that were announced this morning.
1/24 Bethesda, MD – Strathmore
