Bryan Adams Concert in Toronto

9

Yes, I like Bryan Adams. I don’t care how corny some of his songs can be, he is classic.

When I was in China in 2000, I picked up the 98 album “On a Day Like Today” and my friends and I loved it—probably because the lyrics were so easy to under­stand for us, non-English speak­ers. Plus, we were in a “Brid­get Jones” phase where all the guys were ass­hole any­way, so most of the songs on the album con­firmed what we highly sus­pected about the oppo­site sex.

I saw him play in Nantes once—must have been in 1998 or 1999—and I had good mem­o­ries of the con­cert. He is one of these artists worth see­ing live, I think.

That said, the deci­sion to make the trip to the con­cert in Toronto was a last minute one. We both weren’t too busy at work, and the weather was sud­denly warmer. Plus, we wanted to check out the Air Canada Centre.

The drive was quicker than expected (less traf­fic in the mid­dle of the week I guess) and we made it down­town Toronto just in time to grab din­ner before the show.

Secu­rity at the Air Canada Cen­tre was a bit more lax than at Sco­tia­bank Place, and I was able to take my DSLR with me (or at least, no one stopped me). We had good seats too, on the floor, so I’m glad I took the chance.

The show was awe­some. There was no open­ing band but Bryan Adams sang non-stop from 8 p.m. to close to 11 p.m., and he played all his clas­sics, plus many other good tunes. I wasn’t disappointed—he is a great live musician.

The crowd was great too. Lots of women, and some were really young—I won­der how they dis­cov­ered Bryan Adams, who is an artist from 1990s!
