    We usually hear how this dude takes himself way too seriously but I thought this was pretty cool.

    Natalie Prass (whom I guess is his opening act) missed her connecting flight due to the airline screwing up the times. Ryan puts on her dress and does her whole set as her.

    Pretty cool. The performance below is actually quite good! He only looks silly because of the dress but he treated the material with respect. Kudos to him for giving something to the fans when they otherwise wouldn't have.

    I set the Over/Under on a Bryan Adams reference to 6 posts.

    Meh, I'm sorry but I'm going to be the crabby one here. If I was his opening act and this happened to me, I'd be a little insulted. I love me some Ryan Adams, but this is kind of silly and IMO disrespectful to the opener. It would have been much more classy if he just went out there and his band did two sets of Ryan Adams songs for the crowd.

    I think it's hilarious (hope he explained what happened though). Still, I thought it was funnier when he played It's Only Love for the fans who thought he was Bryan Adams.

    Well, he does have to finish out the tour with her, so he must've thought it was in good humor and would be received as such.
    This ain't no one night love affair...

    Yep, pretty crabby. The two have collaborated for a while and are friends.

    It sucks you don't have a sense of humor, couldn't appreciate the great performance, or the classy bit about giving the fans a listen to tunes they wanted to hear.

    I don't know their relationship. I just know that if my headliner dressed up like me and played all my songs because I couldn't make it for whatever reason, I'd be pissed off.

    Did you watch the video? He performed the tune well and with emotion.

    Sure, you could head for the negative but I'd take it the other way ; flattery. In any case, guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

    did he take her pay that night?:waiting

    I'd rather see cross dressing Ryan Adams open for Ryan Adams rather than no opener at all.

    Yes, and that would be your right, but for all we know she was cool with it.
