Palace Theatre

Louisville Kentucky

Any review of Ryan Adam’s work is going come with a caveat after the 2019 New York Times story that alleged sexual misconduct and emotional abuse by him with a number of women.

Being about a year sober Ryan is attempting to kick start his career. Louisville was originally part of an eight-stop Midwest fall tour that turned into 26 dates after a string of highly successful shows in New York City, which speaks to his loyal fan base. Louisville was no different, the 2,800 seat Palace Theater was mostly full for his comeback show.

The audience warmly welcomed him to a dimly lit stage – just a few floor lamps and a single spot light. That set the tone for the next 3 hours as he spent most of the time seated with his guitar in hand, working his way through his vast catalog of music. Long time fans weren’t disappointed as he expertly weaved through classics like “Sweet Carolina” “Cold Roses” and “Come Pick Me Up” while hitting many deeper cuts as well. The whole set had a very living room show vibe – comfortable and laid back. Between songs Ryan even showed a light hearted and self-deprecating side. He spent quite a bit of the night interacting with the audience, like old friends setting around the living room cracking jokes. He even made up a few songs on the spot about, like the soon to be classic  “cussing machine.” The show was closed out with a 4 song mini set of songs from “Cold Roses” joined by fellow Cardinal, Brad Pemberton.
