Ryan Adams & Jenny Lewis Team Up For Splendour 2015 Sideshows

Alt country mainstay Ryan Adams has announced a number of extra headline tour dates while he’s in the country for Splendour In The Grass 2015, joined by none other than his good friend Jenny Lewis.

Adams and Lewis will play sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney this July, after first playing shows in New Zealand and before they head to Byron Bay for Splendour.

Over his 15 year career, Adams has released a total of 14 albums including solo records and LPs with The Cardinals. Now he returns to Australia with his new band, The Shining, after his latest, self-titled LP scored three Grammy noms, and hot on the heels of his 6-disc Live At Carnegie Hall effort.

Joining Adams on tour will be singer-songwriter and ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, last in Australia in 2011 as part of indie duo Jenny & Johnny.

Adams and Lewis have toured the US together, shortly after the release of Lewis’ 2014 album The Voyager, which was produced by Adams. Expect covers and live collaborations.

Both Lewis and Adams are coming down under hot on the heels of US festival performances, including their recent Coachella slots. Tickets go on sale 10am local time, Monday, 4th May. Details below.
