The Bryan Adams Bare Bone Tour provides a rare opportunity for fans to see Bryan Adams as they’ve not seen him before. This new spin on his classic hits as part of his unplugged tour has been met with rave reviews from critics and fans alike:

"They sang along with the ever-so-familiar choruses, filled in vocal gaps he left for them, clapped the missing drum parts, hummed the missing solos, and roared their approval after every offering, right up to a long and hearty standing ovation after 'Run To You'." Toronto Star

Threading hits with new material, the soundtrack-singer succeeded in transferring his emotional ballads and crafted, sing-along rock to a mature setting." Globe and Mail.

Bryan Adams has spent the last three decades making music history. He has sold over 65 million records, toured six continents and achieved #1 status in over 40 countries around the world. With hits like, "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 songwriter's of our time has been solidified with a Grammy Award, 18 Juno Awards and an American Music Award. He has also been nominated for three Academy Awards and five Golden Globes.

Bryan’s current release “Bare Bones” is a collection of live recordings culled from the acoustic tour. Adams’ outstanding live concerts have established him as one of the world's best rock singers, performing over 120 concerts a year. This is a show not be missed!
