Music lovers couldn’t have expected
a better start to the year with a landmark concert for an incredibly noble cause - 'Save The Children'. Celebrated singer-songwriter, guitarist, bassist, producer, and photographer and India’s favourite Canadian rocker, Bryan Adams with his band, Keith Douglas Scott on guitars and Michael Timothy Curry on drums, enthralled the nostalgic audiences with his heart-warming voice at Palace Grounds and we must admit, it was a houseful show.

The ecstatic audiences were seen re-living the magical 80’s- era as they grooved to legendary rock-n-roll numbers including "Summer Of 69”, “Run To You”, "18 Till I Die" and "Everything I Do", as well as songs from the latest album Bare Bones which is an inspired collection of minimally arranged hits culled from Bryan Adams’ impressive body of work spanning over three decades. The tour and resulting album, Bare Bones, is inspired by Adam’s experience recording “MTV’s Unplugged” in the 90’s.

It was a spectacular sight to watch prominent personalities from all walks of life letting their hair down at the 90-minute high octane performance at the VVIP Lounge while Sunil and Mana Shetty played impeccable hosts. The highlights of the evening included power packed curtain raiser events such as Shiamak Davar’s dance act and DJ Akbar Sami gig.

The magnitude of the concert proved it to be one of the biggest and most interactive productions of the year with never-experienced-before technology used for a live concert such as forklifts and stealth LED screen, imported specially from UK and utilized for the very time in India. This was definitely bigger and better than any of his previous concerts in India.

With a career spanning over 25 years, Bryan Adams is one of the most successful music performers in the world. His songs have topped music charts in more than 30 countries and his record sales have exceeded 80 million worldwide. A commoner who started of as delivery paper boy to working at a pet shop handling dog food and washing dishes at North Vancouver’s Tomahawk Restaurant and digging ditches and stripped forms in construction, today gave everyone one night to remember.
