Ryan Adams 2011 Euro Tour Teaser + Bootleg

Ryan Adams is on the road again, After calling it a day with his band the Cardinals in late 2009 and several releases since including a crazy metal album and release of an unheard Cardinals albums, Ryan is back on gigging duties! I was shocked at the news and delighted that my favourite artist was finally back and to hear it was a simple acoustic tour was all the sweeter.
A few dates were put up at first but no Irish show, so I booked Glasgow for the 25th of June. Soon after booking, Cork and Dublin were announced but thankfully I didn't hold out as I will be away for his Irish shows. I will actually be in Portugal when he is playing two night, Its very possible! The full list of European dates are here:

06/07/11 Cork Cork Opera House Ireland
06/08/11 Dublin Olympia Theatre Ireland
06/10/11 Stockholm Cirkus Sweden
06/11/11 Oslo Folketeatret Norway
06/13/11 Malmo The Concert House Sweden
06/14/11 Copenhagen Koncerhauset Denmark
06/16/11 Lisbon Aula Magna Portugal
06/17/11 Porto Teatro Sa Da Bandeira Portugal
06/19/11 London Barbican United Kingdom
06/20/11 London Barbican United Kingdom
06/22/11 Brighton Dome United Kingdom
06/23/11 Manchester Bridgwater Hall United Kingdom
06/25/11 Glasgow Academy United Kingdom
06/26/11 Oxford Oxford New Theatre United Kingdom
06/28/11 Amsterdam Concertgebouw Netherlands

Anyways less chit chat and more teasing, Much speculation has a risen as to what Ryan show we will get, In terms of temperament and set.
Ryan surprised alot of people when he opened up for Emmylou Harris in L.A. on the 21st of April. He played a mix of old and new songs. A small bootleg can be downloaded here of 7 songs, 4 new and 3 old 
Check out these lovely videos below, Cant wait to get to Scotland. Here are my reviews of Ryans last two Irish shows :

Thanks for posting the link to the LA show! I've been listening to the youtube videos an insane amount. Like you, I'm going to Glasgow and then booked the Dublin date as well (couldn't afford Cork as I'm coming down from the North - too expensive to travel to!): so excited to hear new stuff!

Wondering what kind of mood Ryan will be in as well.. He seems a bit crabby on facebook! I'm in the 3rd row for Dublin so will be keeping my head down! ;)
