Bryan Adams Rocks Belfast!

As I continue to enjoy my blogging slow down, I am unashamedly re-blogging another post. I hope you enjoy this musical interlude.

I first saw Bryan Adams in Edinburgh on 20th February 1984, supporting Tina Turner on her “Private Dancer” Tour. I attended a second concert when Bryan was a most deserving lead performer.

On 11 May 2016, I watched Bryan play live in Belfast on his “Get Up” Tour – my third concert.

My niece and I braved 1 1/2 hours of patient standing to get a ringside spot with a great view of 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.

  1. How sweet, I grew up dancing and listening to Bryan Adams (Vancouver is lucky to call him our own!) and your lovely re-blog brought back some great memories, it’s time to dust off my “bryan adams unplugged” CD!

  3. Bryan Adams is incredible and I can never forget Tina Turner. I saw her at Jones Beach on Long Island a few years back and she had that crowd so up. I can still hear that voice of hers churning out rolling on a river. We are so glad you reposted this so we could re-live these memories. Isn’t that something how they drew a crowd of 11,000 plus!!!! They don’t make em like this anymore.
