This is a great show a couple of weeks after the release of Heartbreaker, Adams plays most of the album and some other favorites. He doesn’t talk much but delivers a good concert.

“Ryan doesn’t mind if live recordings make it up on sites as long as no money is changing hands, you know he allows anyone to plug into the board and record.
