Bryan Adams' first cross-Canada tour in 20 years

20 cities - 20 shows

Tickets starting at just $20

Live Nation is thrilled to announce Bryan Adams' first cross-Canada tour in more than 20 years, including a May 4 stop at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place. He won't be just "Waking up the Neighbours" - he'll be waking up the whole damn country.

Not since the release of the multi-platinum Waking up the Neighbours album and 1992's Waking Up the World tour has Adams gone coast to coast in his home country - 20 cities - 20 shows!

"Bryan Adams has singularly had one of the biggest, most commanding impacts on the Canadian music industry. We are thrilled to be able to bring Bryan and his band to so many cities across Canada to celebrate such a legacy of hits and share them with so many people. They are going to be remarkable nights, each and every one," said Paul Haagenson, president of Live Nation Canada.

In recent years, Adams has been performing his critically acclaimed Bare Bones acoustic show that offered a new-found appreciation and perspective to what many consider to be some of the most beloved songs in pop/rock music. This tour marks a grand return to his full band arena rock show, alongside his longtime band, including guitarist Keith Scott, drummer Mickey Curry, keyboardist Gary Breit and bassist Norm Fisher.

As he did 20 years ago, Adams kicked off the tour to sold-out crowds in the U.K.;

"It was a greatest hit of a set that delighted with its scope and delivery." (Liverpool)

"Never mind waking up the neighbours, Bryan Adams woke up the arena ... classic Adams… sheer class throughout." (Newcastle)

"Judging by his latest live show, there'll be no sleep for the next 20 years ... Adams has the best rock voice on the planet." (Sheffield)

The Canadian tour kicks off April 11 in St. John's, N.L., with One Night Only concerts across Canada, wrapping up on June 22 in Winnipeg.

This first cross-Canada tour in 20 years will mark a legendary homecoming for our nation's concert stages by our nation's greatest rock 'n' roll artist - Bryan Adams.

About Bryan Adams:

As Canada's best-known cultural ambassador, singer/songwriter Bryan Adams has spent the last three decades making music history. He has toured six continents and achieved No. 1 status in over 40 countries around the world. With hits that truly need no introduction - "Cuts Like A Knife," "Summer of 69," "Kids Wanna Rock," "Can't Stop This Thing We've Started," "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You," "Open Road" and "Thought I'd Seen Everything," Adams' status as one of the great songwriters of our time has been solidified.

Adams has received the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia, was recognized as Artist of the Decade, has been inducted into the Juno Hall of Fame and is a recent recipient of the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award. He has a star on Canada's Walkway of Fame and his handprint has been added to Wembley's Square of Fame in celebration of his 25th show at the famed stadium. He is the proud recipient of the Governor-General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Achievement, and in 2011 Adams received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Adams recently collaborated with U.K.'s Loverush to produce the No. 1 dance track in the U.K. "Tonight in Babylon." The EP will be released in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. in March, preceded by a February release in Europe.

With his distinctive vocals, Bryan Adams' take on rock 'n' roll has found a niche that has lasted for more than 30 years. His live concerts have established him as one of the best rock singers of our time.
