New Ryan Adams Tourdates for 2008; All Bets On a Shitfit in Seattle

Allow me to impart my live experiences with Ryan Adams as such:

Date: May 16th, 2005

Location: Poughkeepsie, NY

Tour: Cold Roses

Backing Band: The Cardinals

Hospitality Rider: Beer, whiskey, beer, and beer. And whiskey.

Demeanor: Belligerent

Reaction to such heckling examples as "BRYAN ADAMS!!!" and a tragically timed "WOOOOO!" during the beginning of "Wonderwall" (Oasis cover): Tantrums, abrupt song-switch, general malaise, etc.

Date: May 16th, 2007

Location: Kingston, NY

Tour: Easy Tiger

Backing Band: The Cardinals

Hospitality Rider: Rehab, orange juice.

Demeanor: Sedated

Reaction to such heckling examples as "NEW YORK NEW YOOOORK!!!" from an audience member on the wrong album tour: "..."

So I've got my money on a balls-out freakout during any one of these dates, but it's like Russian roulette with this dude. He's like Valium and Adderall united as one.

Oh yeah, and we've gotta have a reason to tour (unless you're Interpol): There's a new EP called Follow the Lights, and rumor has it you can hear new tracks from it on the new ABC primetime drama October Road.

All dates are fair game; I accept bar tabs and jukebox quarters as collateral:
