Bryan Adams to play the Tribute Centre in Oshawa tonight


Published October 12, 2022 at 11:20 am

Platinum-selling and Grammy Award-winning musician Bryan Adams returns to Oshawa tonight as part of a colossal coast-to-coast Canadian tour in support of his 15th studio album, released in March 2022, aptly titled So Happy It Hurts.

Adams will perform at the Tribute Communities Centre, with doors open at 7 p.m. and showtime at eight.

One of the best-selling music artists of all time and considered one of the most iconic rock musicians in the world, Adams has won 20 Juno Awards and a Grammy and has been nominated three times for an Academy Award and five times for a Golden Globe.

Adams continues to tour somewhere in the world ten days every month intertwining arena concerts with special, intimate solo acoustic dates. His music is a mainstay on rock radio and he has sold more than 100 million records and singles worldwide, with 25 top-15 singles in Canada and a dozen more in the U.S., U.K. and Australia.

Adams joined his first band at age 15 and released his debut album five years later. He rose to fame in North America with the 1983 top ten album Cuts Like a Knife, featuring its title track and the ballad Straight From the Heart, his first US top ten hit. His 1984 Canadian and US number one album, Reckless, (which became the first album by a Canadian to be certified diamond in Canada), made him a global superstar with tracks like Run to You and Summer of ’69.

Subsequent hits such as Heat of the Night and (Everything I Do) I Do For You – which sold 15 million copies worldwide – affirmed his place on the rock ‘n roll pantheon.

Adams has been inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Canada’s Walk of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, among other accolades.

The singer found himself in hot water in 2020 with an expletive-riddled post on social media in which he blamed the pandemic on “bat-eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy [expletives].” He later apologized for the comments, saying “no excuse.”

“I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism.”
