Bryan Adams is a little older, a little wiser than the last time he played in Kamloops, but he still has get-up-and-go.
The rock artist returns to B.C. roots this fall for a series of concerts, including one at Sandman Centre Nov. 18, a Friday night. Like his last show here in 2012, this one’s sure to be a sellout.
The Get Up Tour supports Adams’ 13th studio album, Get Up, released a year ago. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 from www.ticketmaster.ca or the Sandman Centre Box Office.
With multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer Jeff Lynne (The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Randy Newman, Traveling Wilburys) at the helm shaping the record, Get Up fits nicely among Adams’ earlier classics.
Adams has spent the last three decades making music history. He has sold upward of 65 million records, toured six continents and achieved #1 status in more than 40 countries around the world. He has been awarded the Order of Canada, has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and has a Star on Canada's Walk of Fame. He has been nominated for, and won, several Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Grammy's, has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been inducted into Wembley's Square of Fame in London, England.
Originally from Kingston, Ont., Adams cut his teeth on the Vancouver music scene in the late 1970s.
