Pretty much standard price for a big act in the olympia these days.

still pretty steep for an acoustic gig of new songs.

thought i'd annoy myself by finding old tickets stubs for the last few cardinals gigs:

Olympia 2006: €38.70
Mandela 2006: £23.50
Ambassador 2008: €33.60

cant find my cardiff '07 one but it was around the 20 quid mark.

time to start saving i suppose.

i dunno, but if you keep an eye on the ryanadamsarchive.com forum the password might pop up there in either the dublin gig or european dates threads.

reading the interest on there these tickets wont last too long.

Guess I'm going to have to go, never seen him and his on my list! Will probably justify it by buying a ticket as a birthday present! Going to be so poor this summer, still have to stump up for lecky picnic

His last solo acoustic shows here were amazing. Hopefully it gives him more freedom to play what he feels and try new stuff.
Would expect at least at good 2hr show hopefully

Presale Info and a rant!

Hey all,

For those looking for presale info I can tell you that I bought tickets for the London show in the 'presale' and it didn't involve any codes or passwords.

I think it was enough just to KNOW that they were going on presale. I'm assuming this might be the same for Dublin. I am signed up to his mailing list, and Ticketmaster, and follow his Facebook page and there was no mention of any secret code for those other presales.

So hopefully that helps anyone looking for info.

As this is the only active Ryan Adams thread that I can find, I also thought I'd use it to air a grievance so apologies if its in the wrong place!

Along with the rest of the country, I am broke! BUT when his European tour dates were announced on his Facebook (which he maintains himself), I was delighted but of course annoyed that he wasn't playing Dublin which is the far cheaper alternative! Decided I'd splash out and get two tickets to London and have bought flights. Despite Irish people asking him on his page if there'd be an Irish date, and Irish people like myself posting that we were making the trip over, there was no mention of an Irish date until last night.

My gut reaction was frankly to be a bit annoyed. I don't know why he couldn't hold off announcing the tour until ALL dates were finalised so that his FANS knew where they stood. I really feel pretty cheated to be honest.

Knowing his reputation as being a bit of a brat (as much as I love his music, we all know this is true), I held off expressing my frustration. Another Irish fan however, brought up the fact that she had bought tickets for a UK date, was broke, and would now have to fork out for a second date. Now, Ryan himself saw this and pointed out no one was forcing her to go to his show and she should chill out. She was at worst giving him a harmless slagging while simultaneously pointing out how dedicated she was to him and she got a snarky response from her idol in return. I later agreed with her and said I was in a similar situation but that I looked at the bright side - that I'd get to fly the Irish flag in London and get a gig on my home turf and how lucky we are etc.

Both of us have since been removed, by Ryan, as fans of his page and have been blocked from commenting on his posts.

I'm both really upset (I love the guy!) and furious. I know he's childish, I know how petulant he is with reporters, I've heard the stories of him being a brat on stage but I don't know where he gets off behaving like that. I now feel like I'm the douchebag and all I did was tell him how looking forward I was to getting not one but two gigs in.

So now I'm not sure how I feel about sitting in the audience of his show when I specifically know that he has a problem with me.

It's pretty surreal, typing here about my virtual run in with Ryan Adams but I suppose I just needed a rant!

And I know the staunch Ryan Adams fans will tell me to cop on but I was a staunch Ryan Adams fan until 7 hours ago.

I can understand your attitude candypants.. i went down through the comments on the facebook page and noticed that OP who complained about been already having tickets for the london show and having to get tickets for the dublin show now despite been broke.. In fairness id say his tour manager was trying to get a venue and date for the olympia gig so he probably knew as much as we do.. why dont you sell the london tickets if you get dublin tickets?? as for ryan been a brat.. id say hes the most talented brat in the world...

in regards to the pre sale issue.. if i just check for tickets next wednesday at 9am i'll be able to buy them??
