Ryan Adams is returning to the Hall on 22 September 2017, for the first time since making his debut here in 2013!
His highly anticipated show will include music from his new release Prisoner which, hailed in advance the world over as Adams’ best work in a decade or more, is his first full-length album of original material since his self-titled, Grammy-nominated release in 2014.

This new album is shaping up to be one of his most celebrated to date, as early reviews indicate:
‘such raw subject matter might once have found Adams tumbling into self-indulgence, here he turns in a set of fine, affecting songs’
‘Personal and urgent… close to the magnum opus of his dreams.’
‘..One of Ryan Adam’s most absorbing albums in years”
Sunday Times Culture
‘It’s a wisdom that comes from having been over this ground many times before, and whileyou wouldn’t wish it on him again, the worst sort of anguish brings out the best in him.’
‘Genius… The best thing he’s put out in a decade’
New York Magazine
‘a stunning scrapbook that captures heartbreak in an intimate array of snapshots, a collection that marks his most accomplished record since Heartbreaker.’
Consequence Of Sound
“the poet laureate of unadulterated heartbreak, a master chronicler of the endless shapes and colors of romantic pain.”
