I first saw Bryan Adams in Edinburgh on 20th February 1984, supporting Tina Turner on her “Private Dancer” Tour.
On Wednesday last, I watched Bryan play live for the third time, in Belfast on his “Get Up” Tour.
My niece and I braved 1 1/2 hours of patient standing to get a ringside spot with a great view of the ever handsome Mr Adams. It was well worth the wait…
Later, we sang and danced with my two sisters to:
“Summer of ’69”,
“All for Love”,
“Run to You”,
“Straight from the Heart”….
A guitar duet with lead guitarist Keith Scott, during “Its Only Love” was indeed “Heaven.”
As part of an 11,000 strong crowd accompanying Bryan to “Everything I Do, I Do It For You,” we were told that Belfast still held the record for the loudest sing a long to the band ever!
The papers say that the set included 23 songs plus an encore. I know it was in the words of one of his songs “A Night to Remember.”
Thank you Bryan, you and your band are indeed AWESOME.
