The L.A. shows are the latest in a series of 2012 tour dates extending his completely sold out tour, which the New York Times recently lauded as a “gorgeously hushed communion” in which “a lone chord can arrive like a thunderclap.”
Generating some of the best reviews of his career, Adams’ “superb new album” (the New York Times again), Ashes & Fire (PAX-AM/Capitol), is eleven succinct and beautiful songs that “will leave you speechless” according to People, and hailed by Esquire as “too good not to write about” and by USA Today as a record that “restores faith in the increasingly saggy singer/songwriter genre.” Ashes & Fire was produced by 2012 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Glyn Johns, renowned for his work with the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Clash and The Rolling Stones, and whose son Ethan produced previous Adams solo landmarks including Heartbreaker and Gold. The record also features guest turns from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and Norah Jones, who contributes piano and backing vocals to several tracks.
