Ryan Adams & The Cardinals

Cost: $49- $179+
CRITIC’S PICK: Rescheduled from May 25. Adams has a long way to go to revive his career, which tanked after a raft of negative press about alleged sexual misconduct (from which he was legally cleared) and a nasty divorce from actress Mandy Moore. He has returned to his artistically-fertile self lately, releasing at least six under-the-radar albums since 2019 (four in 2022 alone!), two of which were song-by-song recreations of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska and Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks. That brings his total up to 24 studio discs, so what he’ll be playing is unclear. But if Adams is trying to win back his once sizable audience, it’s likely he will deliver a professional performance with a great band behind him, something that could previously not be counted on. - Hal Horowitz
