The Telegraph
Flicking an unruly mop of dark hair from his eyes, Adams began with Prisoner’s opener, the pleading Do You Still Love Me?, with a bristling verve that refused to relent all night. New material rarely provides the highlight of a live show, but Adams has thrown off the fancies of country music he once favoured and instead evoked the heartland rock of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. It is where he belongs. Outbound Train and Doomsday, two standout tracks from Prisoner, were urgent, spiritual-sounding thrills. Adams’s voice reverberated through the hall as he bounded about the stage, accompanied by percussion and hypnotic melodies so exhilarating they almost belied the devastation in his lyrics.

Evening Standard
Based on the enthusiastic reception it received, you could have been forgiven for thinking Adams’s opening song, the power-ballad pastiche Do You Still Love Me? from new album Prisoner, was one of his cherished classics. Plenty of songs from the album — only out since February but surely his most well-received since Heartbreaker — were included and all felt like old favourites. Channelling Nebraska-era Springsteen, Adams’s heart was not so much bared as exposed, valves and all, despite his efforts to hide behind his wild, college-student hair. When the Stars Go Blue, Broken Anyway and Prisoner saw him at his most fragile, as did his duet with the impressive Karen Elson on the Nashville-inspired Cold Roses. If there was a theme to the night, it was one of rock’n’roll catharsis. [full review here]

The Times
As the troubled boy-king of alternative country, Ryan Adams is notorious for his artistic temperament. He has picked fights with fellow musicians, castigated critical journalists and, most famously, lost it with naughty audience members who heckle him with requests for Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. At this prestigious concert he was on his best behaviour, delivering a solid set that showcased his versatile abilities: thoughtful singer-songwriter, maudlin country balladeer, bar-room rock’n’roller. At times, though, the B separating Canadian arena-filler Bryan from North Carolina cool guy Ryan became very small indeed. [full review here]

Cetus News
Adams invited his support act Karen Elson on stage to duet for Cold Roses, a lovely sojourn to Nashville punctuated with a guitar interlude that, while impressive, was overlong and was only just saved from dragging by a fierce, unexpected rush of drums – which had kept the pace feverish all night. Closing on a rapturous Shakedown on 9th Street, Adams shone through the smoke, back with affirmation at the top of his game. [full review here]


This is one hell of a place to close out the UK Tour. XO
