It is official. Bryan Adams is coming to India. The legendary Canadian singer-songwriter will do a five-city tour of India in October this year. The cities where he will be performing include Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and New Delhi. This will be a part of his nineteenth concert tour, for which he has already been to 53 cities across four continents this year.
What is learnt at this moment is that the gigs are lined up in support of Ultimate, a 21-track compilation that he brought out late last year. This will the fifth time he will be performing in the country. And we are told that this is going to be much bigger a show than what he has done on earlier occasions. Speaking about the concert, Adams says, “Namaste India. At the onset, I’d like to wish each one of you a very happy Independence Day. India is one of my favourite places in the whole world. The love and generosity that I have experienced here is immense and I am eternally grateful to ENIL for the opportunity to perform again in this beautiful country.”
The Ultimate Tour will see the singer perform on songs from his fourteenth album, which consists of some fresh song as well some of his biggest hits – all designed to capture the legend’s stupendous career.
The 58-year old Adam had first performed in India in 1996. He followed it by stellar concerts in 2001, 2003 and 2011. Some of his best-remembered songs include ‘Summer of ’69’, ‘When You’re Gone’, ‘Everything I Do I Do It For You’, and ‘All for Love’
