Adams has received good reviews for his score of the new Pretty Woman musical now running at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre. Adams posted on his official website (BryanAdams.com) his new album, Shine A Light, will be released on March 1st, 2019 and is now available for pre-order.
Adams kicks off his Canadian dates on January 22nd in Moncton, New Brunswick at Avenir Centre and winds things down 10 nights later on February 1st in St. Catharines, Ontario at Meridian Centre. No U.S. shows have been announced yet.
35 years since scoring his breakthrough U.S. hits — “Straight From The Heart” and “Cuts Like A Knife” — Adams has been a fixture on the rock scene for nearly three generations. When we last caught up with him we asked him about the moment when he realized he had finally made it: “Basically back in about 1984 — must’ve been ’85, we released Reckless and we were doing our first headlining tour of America. And I walked over to Keith Scott, my guitarist, and I said, ‘What’s different? Y’know, we’re doing the same songs.’ Basically what it was, was it was our time, and things were just starting to come together. And people started playing the music and they’re still playing the music. So, it’s really nice.”
