Prolific singer-songwriter Ryan Adams will perform at Stephens Auditorium in Ames, Iowa, on Oct. 22 at 8 pm. This leg of his tour follows a very successful five-venue East Coast kickoff that included a sold-out Carnegie Hall premiere as well as two other sold-out shows. During the East Coast run, he performed a stunning 168 songs over five nights in shows that averaged two hours and forty minutes.

The Stephens Auditorium concert will feature Adams and his guitar and keyboard in an acoustic tour-de-force.

In addition to his touring prep, Adams has released two albums so far this year: “Chris,” a tribute to his late brother, and “Romeo & Juliet.” Music legend Don Was recorded his Carnegie Hall concert in May for release later this year.
