Video: Ryan Adams Covers Bryan Adams, Internet Explodes

Finally. As Ryan Adams kicked off his U.S. tour in Santa Barbara, CA and surprised everyone when he closed the show with a take on “Run To You” by none other than Bryan Adams from 1984’s Reckless whose album cover bares an eerie resemblance to Ryan’s new album cover, as you can see above. The bromance has been brewing between these two, as they’re both active on Twitter and even found themselves hanging out a the Invictus Games closing ceremony in London.

Adams’ annoyance with often being mistaken for the 80s hit machine is well documented, but it seems like he’s coming around. I still wouldn’t advise yelling for “Summer of ’69” at his shows anytime soon. Watch the replay from last night.

Speaking of Ryan Adams, we’re giving away tickets to his show at the Peabody in St. Louis. Get ’em here.
