DVD! Bryan Adams - Live At Sydney Opera House
For those Bryan Adams fans who can't wait to see the singer perform in South Africa in January 2014, this DVD should ease the anticipation. Recorded live in September of 2011 in the city’s world-renowned venue, the concert, brings into your home Bryan Adams’ critically acclaimed Bare Bones concert. It is a rare opportunity for fans to see the singer/songwriter in an intimate theatre setting as he shares the music and stories behind the songs that made him one of the most celebrated rockers of the past three decades. It’s an easy, relaxed and entertaining one hour and 43minutes with all the hits from “Run to You”, “Everything I Do I (Do It For You)”, “Cuts Like A Knife”, “Summer of 69”, “Heaven” and 20 more favourites from Bryan’s illustrious career. The idea for the concept tour took hold a number of years ago when fans began requesting a CD of songs they’d just heard, stripped down – raw – unplugged – the way they had originally been created. Accompanied on some selections by keyboardist Gary Breit, the rest is just Bryan, on acoustic guitar and occasionally adding in a harmonica – playing and performing, explaining and embellishing on the music that has resulted in a career that has taken him around the world. *See Bryan in Joburg on 25 and 26 January at the Big Top Arena, Carnival City, then one show only in Cape Town on 28 January at the Grand Arena, GrandWest, Port Elizabeth on 29 January at Feather Market, and 31 January, 2014, at the ICC Durban.
