Let It Ride


One of Adams’ greatest talents is how he pivots from the silly to the serious. He did so masterfully midway through his set. As mentioned, Adams loves making up songs. Tonight’s topic of choice was Instagram’s live-streaming feature. What does one do when performing such a song? Well, one streams it live on Instagram, of course. The song ended, and Adams grabbed his 12-string acoustic for what became the night’s best performance. He approached a different mic at center stage that was wrapped in Christmas lights — one that hadn’t yet been used — and performed the title track off his newest album, “Prisoner,” as the other lights dimmed. Adams’ band gradually joined in midway through the rendition, first with a serene organ part and kick drum hits on each beat, as Adams switched to an electric guitar. The crowd started clapping on the beat, too, and Adams dove headfirst (metaphorically speaking) into the most incisive, heart wrenching guitar solo of the night. [full review here]

The Salt Lake Tribune
"Imagine there's smoke … almost like you're at a rock show," Ryan Adams said to a packed Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City on Sunday night. His crew didn't use smoke machines at his concert because, according to Adams, the theater wouldn't let them. "And I was like, 'But it's theater!'?" Adams said. I don't think anyone would have even noticed. Who needs smoke when most of the songs were lengthened by the band jamming, riffing and showing off their rock chops? [full review here]

Slug Magazine
Adams addresses the audience with song requests while a gentleman in the first few rows repeatedly yells out for “Jacksonville Skyline.” The request could have been a whole lot worse, but Adams responds to the man’s request with an oddball, offhand comment—“When I make, you a special lasagna, you don’t ask for a ham sandwich”—alluding to the fact that this man’s request is for a song by a now-extinct band that Adams was a part of, called Whiskeytown. “Doomsday,” another song from the new album, starts out strong, giving off the vibe of being a followup single to any number of Bruce Springsteen’s early albums. Less than a minute into the song, with an atomic bomb lit up on the televisions Adams waved his hand in a circular motion over his head, signaling the band to quit playing. “Doomsday” flipped from hard electric rock to a solo acoustic set, adding the signature harmonic riffs found at the beginning of the song heard on the album.
