Last time Bryan Adams was through town, I believe, he played a solo acoustic show at Conexus Arts Centre. This time, the venue is Brandt Centre and I would expect he’ll have a full band. That’s because the show’s being billed as the Reckless 30th Anniversary tour.
As long-time fans likely know, Reckless was Adams’ fourth studio album, and it produced six monster hits (“Run to You”, “Kids Wanna Rock”, “Somebody”, “Summer of ’69”, “One Night Love Affair” and “It’s Only Love” with Tina Turner) that really established Adams as an international star.
On Monday, Jan. 19 Adams will perform a special set honouring that album, plus also play a number of fan favourites from other albums. Curtain for the show should be around 8 p.m., and tickets range from $19.69-$95. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s video from a concert a few years ago in Lisbon where Adams performs “It’s Only Love”:
