Due to overwhelming popular demand, Ryan Adams June 5 Stonehenge concert has been… canceled?
Event organizers English Heritage withdrew permission for the show after its announcement led to requests far beyond capacity and projections for registration to the Salisbury Festival of which it was a featured attraction. The organizers cited additional concerns, such as Adams’ fans causing unprecedented traffic congestion in and around the festival site and attendant “driver distraction on A344/A303,” concern over “gatecrashers” storming the long since sold out event, and technical issues with amplified music at the site.
While Ryan respects English Heritage’s decision and concern for the hallowed ground of Stonehenge, he is nevertheless saddened and disappointed that both he and fans who had purchased tickets will not experience this once in a career performance.
Ryan Adams’ Easy Tiger will now be released June 26 on Lost Highway.
While the final sequence is still TBD, Easy Tiger will be comprised of the following tracks: “Goodnight Rose”, “Everybody Knows”, “The Sun Also Sets”, “Halloween Head”, “Off Broadway”, “Two Hearts”, “Tears Of Gold”, “These Girls”, “Two”, “I Taught Myself How To Grow Old”, “Oh My God, Whatever, Etc.”, “Rip Off”, and “Pearls On A String”.
Easy Tiger will be Ryan Adams’ ninth full length collection of new studio recordings, following Heartbreaker (2000), Gold (2001), Demolition (2002), Rock N Roll (2003), Love Is Hell (2004), Cold Roses (2005), Jacksonville City Nights (2005), and 29 (2005).
