The multi-platinum recording artist Bryan Adams will perform outdoors at Bitts Park on Saturday 15 July, as a continuation of his Get Up Tour. This is one of just a handful of outdoor shows the Canadian musician will perform in the UK in 2017.

Bryan Adams is a Canadian singer-songwriter, who has enjoyed musical acclaim over the last 35 years. Some of his best-known albums were ‘18 til I Die’, ‘Waking up the Neighbours’, but it was his ‘Reckless’ album which truly propelled him into the stratosphere of pop music’s ruling elite. The album spawned timeless and ‘larger than life’ singles such as ‘Heaven’, ‘Summer of 69’, ‘Run to You’ and ‘One Night Love Affair’. The album peaked at number one on the official chart in the US.

Adams is also renowned for his ‘Everything I Do, I Do it for You’ single, which topped the singles charts worldwide including a whopping 16-week run at the top of the UK singles charts in 1991. The song featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and for this Mr Adams received his first Academy Award nomination and Golden Globe nomination.

Bryan Adams’ latest studio album ‘Get Up’ has received much acclaim. Produced by famed ELO frontman Jeff Lynne it features nine new songs and four acoustic versions, highlighting Adams’ unique voice and depth. His thirteenth studio album, it features several fast, catchy tunes like ‘Brand New Day’ and ‘You Belong to Me’, which reflect back on the feel-good style of music that made Adams a household name in the 1980s with hits like ‘Summer of 69’ and ‘Heaven’.
