Ryan Adams

Hammersmith Lyric Theatre, May 6-7
Former frontman for ace US indie country-rock band, Whiskeytown, Adams is one of the great young troubadors of the alternative music scene. Heartbreaker – Adams’ first solo album, released in September, last year, caused an immediate and sustained critical and commercial stir. Whiskeytown’s forthcoming third album – Pneumonia – is a barnstorming affair that’s bound to reap similar acclaim. In a class of writers and performers that includes Cobain and Westerberg, Adams is the real deal. Time then to catch one of Rock’s hottest young stars as he cuts loose on a rare U.K. solo tour.
