LIVE AFTER DEAF chronicles the 15-date June 2011 UK/Europe tour that marked Ryan’s return to live performance. Sandwiched between the completion of his acclaimed Ashes & Fire and its October 2011 release, the shows were the first of a solo acoustic tour featuring Adams performing to arguably the best reviews of his career–The New York Times called it a “Gorgeously hushed communion… One slow, perfectly poised song after another” while the SF Weekly raved “Shows rarely get more revealing — or more engaging — than this.” With setlists featuring tracks covering the breadth his career – from Whiskeytown through early solo landmarks Heartbreaker and Gold to the Cardinals era and about-to-be-released material from Ashes & Fire–RYAN ADAMS’ LIVE AFTER DEAF is a rare and intimate document of an artist reconnecting both with his fans and his own body of work.
Now, in celebration of its one-year-anniversary, LIVE AFTER DEAF provides fans a way to re-live that tour–or experience for the first time.
Stay tuned to paxamrecords.com for further developments.

LIVE AFTER DEAF
Following a break from live performance that lasted several years, Ryan Adams’ return to the stage began with a 15-date European tour in June of 2011. Sandwiched between the recording of “Ashes And Fire” and the album’s release, the tour featured Adams performing solo acoustic with setlists featuring tracks from across his career – from Whiskeytown through his early solo work and his albums with The Cardinals and his then-unreleased material from “Ashes and Fire”…allowing him to reconnect with his fans and stretch out within his own catalogue.
Now, in celebration of its one-year-anniversary, LIVE AFTER DEAF provides fans a way to experience that tour.
Featuring 15 discs of vinyl (one for each show of the tour) packaged in a heavyweight cloth box, this limited release features 144 performances on vinyl with a download card featuring all the vinyl tracks along with 74 digital-only bonus tracks – adding up to a staggering 218 unreleased performances total.

Live after Deaf UPDATE:
All of us at Pax-Am are REALLY SORRY that the servers crashed + the release got so screwed up.
Our digital partners Kung Fu Nation & The Uprising Creative were not expecting such a high demand and therefore both kung fu and pax-am sites shit the bed. Hard.
We are rescheduling this release so people can get away from their computers, have a nice weekend & we can fix the site problems once and for all.
