Ryan Adams Performs a Cover of ‘Summer of ’69’ by the Similarly Named Bryan Adams

Published by:

Ryan Adams performed a cover of the song “Summer of ’69” by the similarly named Bryan Adams on April 28, 2015 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. This isn’t the first time Ryan Adams has covered Bryan Adams, but, according to Consequence of Sound, the performance does mark something of a full circle for the singer. He’d performed at the Ryman 13 years prior, and it didn’t all go as planned.

The set featured appearances by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, but also one obnoxious audience member who wouldn’t stop calling for Bryan Adams’ “Summer of ’69”. See, Ryan Adams and Bryan Adams are very similar names, so this heckler thought he was being hilarious. Adams, however, didn’t think it was so funny; in a curse-filled rant, he had the guy booted from the venue, though at least with a $40 refund in his pocket.

The original “Summer of ’69” for the sake of comparison:
