He got back on the road in September and now the former Whiskeytown frontman has inked a string of November dates just in time for the reported release of a 7-inch follow-up to his recent full-length, Love Is Hell.

The latter began life as two separate EPs that were combined with some added material and released last November. The new, as-yet-unnamed release, will go on sale shortly at Adams’ Web site.

Then it’s time to hit the road.

Adams will kick things off at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago November 12 and head through Minneapolis, Omaha , St. Louis, Cincinnati and wind down at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium November 20, unless he decides to tack on more performances.

Fans may recall the Ryman as the scene of one of the temperamental star’s most memorable meltdowns.

Adams reportedly went ballistic there in 2002 after a fan yelled out for “Summer of ‘69” – the Bryan Adams hit – stopping the show and ordering the fan to leave after giving him $30 out of his own wallet.
