Having grown up on Classic Rock radio, it’s safe to say I have always harbored a soft spot for Canada’s favorite acne-scarred every-man rocker. When you hear his catalogue it’s amazing to see just how many massive hits Adams had throughout the past 30-odd years. It was in the early years (meaning the 80s) where Adams nearly single-handedly ruled the airwaves. “Cuts Like A Knife”, “Summer of ’69”, “Somebody”, the list goes on and on. Each and every song is an anthem, and they have easily stood the test of time.
The latter part of his career is when he seemingly abandoned his trademark rock sound to appease the easy-listening crowd. His fans (and probably some new ones along the way) have lapped up the slowing of the tempo.
This tour is called the Reckless Tour and he will be playing that album front to back in its entirety. Relive those leather jacket, Levis jeans and white t-shirt days with Bryan Adams.
