Frontier Touring are proud to announce that the great Ryan Adams along with his band The Shining will treat Australia and New Zealand to headline shows this July.
 
This will be Adams’ first tour of Australia and New Zealand since 2012’s acclaimed sold-out Ashes and Fire solo theatre tour and his first time playing here with a full band in six years.
 
Adams’ diverse and prolific career has seen the release of fourteen albums since his breakthrough solo debut in 2000. Dabbling in punk, rock, folk and indie - whilst staying true to his alt-country roots, nine of his fourteen albums have placed in the Top 100 of the ARIA album charts. 
 
Along the way, Adams has also collected numerous Grammy nominations, including the three he received this year for the aptly named Ryan Adams (out now through PAX AM Records). The album’s lead single - ‘Gimme Something Good,’ was the first vinyl single ever to reach #1 on the Amazon chart. 
 
‘This thing is a total knock out’ - Stereogum
 
‘Adams sounds like he’s in total command’ – Boston Globe
 
‘A gritty guitar-driven jam perfect for cranking on the stereo’ - Time
 
As well as the release of the full-length album, Adams more recently announced a 6-disc Live At Carnegie Hall vinyl box including complete recordings of his two sold-out solo acoustic shows from November, 2014.  Additionally, Adams continues to release singles as part of the PAX AM Single Series including Jacksonville, Vampires, Do You Laugh When You Lie, No Shadow, and Blue Light
 
In celebration of his self-titled album’s release, Adams announced headline dates in the UK, US and Europe, as well as spots on the bill at Coachella, and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival. 
 
Reviews of his live shows cement Adams as one of the industry’s finest songwriters at the peak of his career: 
 
‘The songs of Adams reach the head and the heart with emotional precision’ – Newcastle Herald
 
‘His voice in fine form: its warmth and character engaging; its underestimated technical skill exposed’ – Sydney Morning Herald
 
‘It was a great privilege to witness one of America’s great songwriters performing at the top of his game’ - Telegraph UK
 
‘It was damn near perfect. Fourteen years into his solo career, Adams may just be entering his prime’ – Pop Dose
 
With a massive catalogue of songs under his belt, seeing Ryan Adams is not only a nod to the past but a chance to see an artist who improves on perfection with every release. Secure your tickets now!
