on his Rock n Roll tour?
If yes, was he better like that or all unplugged ish?
but i've heard bits and pieces. they're different things, really...
HEY, you'll like this - i saw a setlist from a recent american tour and he'd included some Rock N Roll tunes for the first time since he fell off that stage in Liverpool. no So Alive, but i can but prey.
i posted about that in the news comments bit on the right....>
three songs from rock n roll in one night eh. nice.
the tour got a tiny bit of a slating from the press, but i think it generally went well except for a few nights where he'd blatantly gone ott with the drugs and drink. the cardinals seem a bit more stable as a backing band...you could definitely see at victoria apollo how he got more focussed when they came on stage.
a lot of the slating of the Rock N Roll shows was that he played 95% material from that and Love Is Hell, ignoring just about everything else.
i'm still trying to work out which shows i can go to. london and cambridge for definitie, but i'd like to fit another in..
I saw him the night he fell off stage and on the February acoustic tour. He seems a lot more confident with the band behind him.
I do prefer him playing acoustically though just to hear the songs exactly how he wrote them.
only doing london due to cash problems, and it'll probably be the weirdest gig ever cos i'll be going with my girlfriend and my mum.
my mum has become the biggest ryan adams fan on earth, she's got all the whiskeytown albums and keeps making me get her bootlegs. she also likes broken social scene, which is odd but good.
likes BSS because they sound quote: 'trippy'.
i wouldn't fight it :D
calling him Bryan Adams because she knows it winds me up.
im gonna slap the tart in a minute...
and i have the time to do it. but probably not the money. GRRRAARRGH!
tour was wonderful!
so he spent ages talking; so what!? he was still playing 20+ songs per night, so wheres the issue? the talking is one of the best parts about him live anyway...
someone on another message board called him "shambolic". i prefer to think of him as one of the few live performers that doesn't play by any sort of rulebook, and that's what i loved so much. his personality just shines when he's onstage..
i only have twenty quid and ive got a birthday present to buy for saturday, before going away on monday. i paid a cheque in yesterday. i hope it clears soon or that i can get on the internet where im going.
I saw him at the Bristol show on jan 2004.
That show is still talked about with awe on the .org
illustrates exactly what i love about his shows - two new albums out within the last few months and... he opens with a new song. and plays several more.
It was great.
He was incredibly intense. He seemed pretty unhappy on that tour, but on that night he pushed through it.
I still remember those songs. very few people have heard them. I treasure that...
