Music Review

Bryan Adams show in Bangalore

Atlast, it happened. The great event we were all waiting for in February. No words to describe the experience.

The crowd was great, and we were there at 3pm. Had to wait in the long queue for nearly 2 hours, before we were let in. Luckily managed to be in the front row. The show started at 7pm with the opening gig performed by Shaimak Davar and his group. Not great, but it was fun.

Bryan Adams entered the stage at around 7:40pm and he performed non-stop for 2 hours, belting out one hit off another. Pure magic.  “There Will Never Be Another Tonight” was the opening one, and true to the lyrics of his song, I am sure there won’t be another event like this in Bangalore for a long time.

Can’t Stop This Thing We Started, (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, 18 Till I Die, There’s Nowhere Else on Earth I’d Rather Be,  Please Forgive Me – you name his hits, all were there. He made sure that the crowd grooved to his music and his guitar.

True to his image, he made sure that his team deserved all the credits. Accompanying him were drummer Mickey Curry, guitarist Keith Scott, keyboard player Gary Breit and bassist Norm Fisher. His special tribute to Keith Scott was outstanding.

Still feels like a dream. Hope this lasts forever.
