Adams will play Red Rocks on August 17, and will be joined by alternative noodler Kurt Vile and his band, the Violators. Tickets are $45-$55 and go on sale Friday, Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. via Though not advertised as a double-bill, Adams and Vile is the latest in a run of loaded shows this summer at Red Rocks. In June, Chromeo, Jamie xx and Four Tet will play together; later that month, Modest Mouse and Brand New will share the stage. Late July sees the Avett Brothers play with J. Mascis, and at the end of August, Tame Impala will be joined by Mac DeMarco. Even that’s leaving out a lot of impressive shows.

Hey Reverb
He shredded through “Stay With Me,” nearly rapped the lyrics through a fast version of “New York, New York” and played a perfect rendition of “Magnolia Mountain.” “Nobody Girl,” a personal favorite, came toward the end of the set, starting slow and building up to a rocking end. Adams never once touched an acoustic guitar. He ended the set with fan-favorite “Come Pick Me Up” before walking to the edge of the stage with The Shining where they all took a big, smiling bow before disappearing into the wings.

I Listen So You Don't Have To
Then the full moon rose high enough in the sky to been seen by Ryan Adams. “Oh my god, look at the moon right now! Yeah, what’s up moon? So weird up in the sky, looking at us. What’s up? This next song goes out to the friendly moon.” As if feeding off that moon, the way it did the sun, Ryan Adams suddenly became animated. “To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High)” stoked those embers left behind by Kurt Vile, causing arms like flames to flicker in the air. “Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.” Large clouds of spent marijuana floated harmlessly as “Cold Roses” transitioned through “Fix It” into another barnburner, “Shakedown on 9th Street”.
