R-Y-A-N Adams will perform at Strathmore Jan. 24. (Neal Casal)

Veteran singer-songwriter Bryan Adams performs on Jan. 23. B-R-Y-A-N Adams. Who should be performing at the same venue the very next night, Jan. 24? Ryan Adams. R-Y-A-N Adams. That’s some skillful work by the Strathmoore booker, right there.

In addition to making sure you have the correct Adams when ordering your tickets, one more piece of advice with regard to Bryan vs. Ryan: Don’t show up at the latter’s performance and — mistakenly or intentionally — request “Summer of ‘69.”

Ryan really hates it when you do that.
