To Be Without You



Triple M
Kicking the set off with the lead single from his latest offering, Prisoner, Do You Still Love Me? had the entire audience singing along from the first note. The touching cover of Oasis’ Wonderwall was a beautiful moment, regardless of the thousands of people who filled the arena, it felt intimate and close and then the full rock star mode comes into play, with the talent shredding the guitar, with a stage filled with smoke and lights.

Sydney Morning Herald
Two microphone stands stood at the lip of the stage, as if waiting for Adams and his gun second guitarist to make a dramatic advance towards us. It kind of happened when Adams strode out to play Prisoner on an acoustic guitar before retreating to strap on one of his innumerable electric axes for a fabulous all-soloing climax. These moments where he made his instrument sing pure heartbreak as his band splayed into fantastic smoke-billowing psych-blues wig-outs were the peaks of the show. His poignant solo twist on Noel Gallagher's Wonderwall and the quiet rapture of My Winding Wheel brought the vast room to a standstill. [full review here]

Cat Politics
There was very little chit chat from Ryan during the concert, the songs being performed in fast sequence with hardly a pause, Ryan occasionally performing solo in the midst of what was a predominantly rock n roll set, his beautiful voice as always carrying clearly across the expanse of the arena. The Melbourne audience was, as is generally the case, quietly appreciative and I did not witness any bad behaviour, acknowleged by Ryan, referring to his recent show at Byron Bay which was spoiled by disinterested attendees who chatted loudly throughout his set. This may be the last time that Ryan Adams will visit Australia, so I’m glad I got to see him perform live one more time. [full review here]

AU Review
If there is a personification of the word “chill”, it’s US singer-songwriter, Ryan Adams. His hidden-eye mop hairstyle, mumbling presence and sizable discography took to a security-laden (and now-controversially named) Margaret Court Arena on Friday night and delivered a slick, calming performance. If anything was discovered tonight, it is that Ryan Adams may be a man of few words, but for fans, it’s all about the music anyway; and with the longevity – not to mention quality – of his talent, there’s a lot of material to draw from. And on a night like tonight, this rock show – with all its unnerving security measures – still proved a reminder of the power of escapism through music, something we need now more than ever.
