Okay. We get it. Ryan Adams’ name sounds a lot like Bryan Adams. And we bet he gets that a lot.
In fact, Ryan Adams was sick of the joke thirteen years ago. While playing at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in October of 2002, he actually stopped his show to kick out a “fan” who had been heckling him throughout his entire set, shouting at him to play Bryan Adams’ classic hit “Summer of ’69.” The alt-country singer ordered the fan be removed from the venue, but did offer him $30 as a refund. Then he carried on with his show.
Adams said this event sent him to therapy, but it looks like he’s finally gotten over it: this week he returned to the Ryman and finally gave in to an acoustic rendition of “Summer of ’69.” Check out a fan’s video below.
This comes after first covering Bryan Adams’ “Run To You” last year. Let’s hope the “fan” from over a decade earlier made it to this show.
The two Adams are reportedly now friendly, so maybe the past is in the past. Let’s just try not to confuse them anymore.
