Bryan Adams Gets Everyone Up in Concord!

Bryan Adams brings his  “Get Up”  Tour to Concord CA and has everyone on their feet.

With a career spanning almost four decades, Brian Adams,the beloved Canadian rocker is still the voice of “Americana rock” luring us in stronger than ever.  Adams performed a wide variety of his biggest hits from his multi-decade repertoire, beginning with a vibrant performance of “Can’t Stop This Thing We Started,” which left us engrossed in his 1991 album, “Waking Up the Neighbors.”  The crowd went wild as they heard “She says a love for me could never die,” and the unmistakable chords of the fan anthem, “Run To You” which had fans dancing in their seats.

As only he can do, Adams storytelling style and stellar songs have become cherished pieces in our lives.  A highlight of the night was,  “Heaven” with the house lights down low, a singular spot light beaming behind Adams and his acoustic guitar; and the band silhouetted with a backdrop of time-lapse starlight was utter perfection.

With the crowd taking over many of the verses, I watched everyone leaning closer to embrace and share the sentiment of the lyrics.

Encores included “Brand New Day” Straight From The Heart” and “All For Love”; Adams had no opening band this night, and performed virtually non-stop for over two hours,  alongside original members Keith Scott  (lead guitar and backing vocals) and Mickey Curry  (drums).  Hats off to you Bryan, still rocking with no end in sight.
