Adams begins his next round of US dates on January 24 in Bethesda, MD, with shows booked into mid-February before he heads down under for gigs in Australia and New Zealand.
Ryan was a guest on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday recently, where he stopped by the chat about the album; he also performed three tunes live on the show – two from “Ashes & Fire” and a stripped-down acoustic cover of Ratt’s 1984 smash, “Round And Round.”
Adams is a big fan of early 80s metal, and he also hosts a black metal talk show on youtube called “Night Sweats.”
Last summer, while visiting the BBC in London, Adams performed a killer acoustic take on Iron Maiden’s “Wasted Years” – hear it here.
