Bryan Adams brings down the house

Canadian artist Bryan Adams brought The Bare Bones Tour to a sold out crowd at the Memorial Centre Sunday night.

The show was an intimate look into Adams as an artist and also a little bit on a personal level as he shared stories and joked with the audience throughout the show. He stood on stage with guitar in hand and occasionally played the harmonica. His only accompanist on stage was pianist Gary Breit.

As soon as Adams walked out on stage the crowd erupted into cheers. From that moment on Adams had complete command of the audience. He knew exactly how to get people on their feet or dancing in their seats yet in an instant he could soften the mood.

Adams opened the concert by singing Run To You followed by When You’re Gone.

He had great energy on stage and the audience seemed to soak it right up.

He sang hits including 18 Til I Die, a song he said he wrote in Jamaica, When You Love Someone, and Can’t Stop This Thing We’ve Started which prompted the audience to clap and sing along.

Adams has recorded numerous albums over the course of his career.

Being a seasoned pro Adams most definitely still holds that sex appeal as numerous women shouted out “I love you” during the concert.

Adams closed the show with The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You, but as soon as he left the stage the audience demanded more.

He returned to not only invite the audience to get as close to the stage as possible but to play five more songs including Cloud Number Nine and Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

There’s no doubt that Adams knows how to put on a concert and a good one at that. His energy was felt throughout the venue and he’s so personable towards the audience. At age 50, he’s still has many years of entertaining ahead and that’s clear to see.
