The University of Liverpool’s new and improved Guild has reeled in the mighty Ryan Adams for a March date, Getintothis’ Patrick Clarke reports.
Fresh from the release of his latest solo album last month, Ryan Adams is to hit Liverpool Guild of Students next March 1 as the closing date on a long-awaited UK tour.
It’s been a significant year for the singer-songwriter, whose self-titled album – his fourteenth in as many years – was lauded by many as his finest yet, as well as reaching number 6 in the UK charts, his highest ever standing.
It joins quite the back-catalogue, with no flops in sight across the singers lengthy discography, which includes undisputed classics Gold and Heartbreaker,
Adams’ latest live ventures this year were a sellout across the board, which included a rapturously received set at iTunes Festival in London, and an appearance by actor Johnny Depp.
When Adams played Liverpool a decade ago he was severely injured, breaking his wrist after falling from the stage at the Royal Court Theatre, though he returned triumphantly two years later – a feat that it’s hoped he’s set to repeat.
The set is also quite the coup for The Guild, which finally reopened this Summer with X&Y Festival, following lengthy refurbishments, and is returning to the Liverpool circuit in style with Jamie T, Christopher Owens and Example already set for upcoming shows.
