Ryan Adams in Alpharetta: Gone in 60 minutes (or less)

Ryan Adams’ Friday night concert at Alpharetta’s new Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park turned out to be a sweet illusion.

Performing with his band, the Cardinals, Adams sang about a dozen songs including “Everybody Knows,” and his cover of Oasis’ “Wonderwall.”

But an hour or maybe even less into the show Adams, who had been complaining he was losing his voice, abruptly ended the performance, uttering his apologies on the way out.

At first, the crowd seemed stunned, like maybe this was another of Adams’ antics. Then the lights came on. Encore staffers seemed flummoxed, and the poor roadies endured the brunt of the crowd’s booing, as they packed up the band’s gear.

But while disappointed, the audience didn’t get out of hand. (This was Alpharetta, remember. How rowdy could things get?)

Actualy, the truncated show elicited some droll remarks we overheard on the way out.

“He’s back there playing Guitar Hero on the Wii,” one patron hypothesized.

“There goes Ryan Adams’ voice,” another mused, as a tow truck lumbered by in the parking lot.

I’m told by an eyewitness that at least one male audience member experienced a violent bout of dyspepsia after the show.

“That guy’s so disgusted he’s puking!” one men’s room pundit suggested.

(I’m guessing that late bit of unpleasantness was unrelated.)

One girl lamented to a friend that if the sudden cancellation had occurred in town, they could at least hit some bars.

“We’re in Alpharetta,” she said. “Want to go to Chili’s, or Ruby Tuesday?”

Ouch.

A few people lined up outside the box office to see about refunds, but came away with forms to fill out. It seems if any refunds are to be offered, they should come from the artist. It’s not the venue’s fault Adams decided to call it quits.

I’ll look into that next week.

Were you there? Are you disappointed? Will you seek a refund?

And does anyone want this stupid T-shirt I bought?

Since this will probably be deleted over at RAA before long....

ust got back from my weekend Atlanta trip. I have to add my 2 cents.

Those 13 songs I heard were amazing - the sound quality was unreal, Ryan's voice was great, Spacewolf did some AWESOME backup singing, Wonderwall was killer, the crowd and venue were solid, I got Brad's drum stick (woo-hoo!)

On a redundant note, I took off work, drove 7 hours to ATL, got stuck in a rainstorm traffic jam, did the hotel thing, blah blah blah.

I'm grateful that I heard what I did and at least got some LIVE Cardinal jammage before the new album dropped... BUT dammit shitballs, what a disappointment. If they can make it up to us by a re-scheduled date, I would respect that. But to end the tour in such a way and flake mid-show - it could've definitely been handled better. (still love the cards though)

And again, just for the record... ..posted on alt-country. I read her posts and I would agree with her assessment of what she said.

I got banned on RAA for saying that I thought the Ryan Adams Atlanta, Ga. show was bad. I didn't use expletives, I didn't attack people, but I got banned non-the-less. What is up with these people? Ryan Adams apologist fanboys?

Well, back on topic somewhat....his new blog posting seems he doesn't have any intention on coming back (based on the volume of reaction) or doing any make up.

It would seem so. Although, who knows. Ryan changes his mind constantly.

Re: Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Alpharetta, GA (October 17, 2006)

thanks for sharing the info, themassesareasses, and welcome

just read this from a poster on RAA, corroborating the info the venue emailed to themassesareasses:

So hang on to them and keep your fingers crossed for the Tabernacle!

This makes me feel so much better. I know he's had a bad rep for this stuff in the past, so it's nice to know that he's really turned it around.

Thanks for the info.....but the Tabernacle?!. WTF! DOWNGRADE. I had really great seats to see Ryan, everything was great and relaxed, and now for the make-up, I have to trade them in for a general admission, first come first serve, all in the pool scenario........"?"

I say, on the basis of Brad's...."we owe you big time" ......play 1 concert at VWA....and then play another downtown.

I want to see Ryan dressed up as a knight and go Medieval Times on the theater, climaxing with a jam session on top of that faux castle tower, ending with Ryan and Spacewolf sword fighting on the bridge.

So I'm mailing in my tickets. Has anyone else exchanged their tickets? Did you get good seats? I had pretty good ones for the other show. I hope these are at least in the same neighborhood.
