"The bad boy is back and he's really, really good"

-Q Magazine

It brings The Frontier Touring Company great pleasure to announce the return of Ryan Adams and The Cardinals to Australasia this August. The quintet will perform shows in Melbourne and Sydney and for the first time in Adelaide, Brisbane and Auckland.

It's been two years since Ryan last toured our shores and during that time he's released a brilliant new album. Easy Tiger (out now through Universal Music) is Ryan’s ninth studio album and the word on the street is that it may just be his best yet.

"Easy Tiger - which is playing in our mail room, in our editors' cars, and may soon be piped in via loudspeaker to the restrooms around here - has us thinking Adams may finally transcend his perpetual next big thing status… Easy Tiger seems to prove that Adams is once again as in touch with the delicate tragedies of life and love as he's ever been." Rolling Stone

The Sydney Morning Herald awarded the album four stars, commenting "Easy Tiger… may yet rank as one of his best… It distils his many influences and sources to a key triumvirate: sad country; even sadder pop; and whiskey-soaked mid-tempo rock… Ah, yes, he's good that Ryan Adams. There's no point debating it."

Ryan's live performances are equally admired:

"When the singer, perched on a folding stool, opened his mouth and sang the opening words to new song 'Taught Myself How To Grow Old', the silence was absolute. Ryan had the audience in the palm of his hand…. Ryan's singing was a revelation. At times, he seemed about to explode, squirming in his seat, his voice cracking with emotion." Manchester Evening News

As NME say "Every show with Ryan Adams is an event."
