Bryan Adams - Monday 29th October - Royal Albert Hall

Bryan Adams and his 'Bare Bones' tour finally reaches London. In the imposing surroundings at the Royal Albert Hall this show was being filmed for DVD and I'd managed to secure a half-decent seat on the floor without paying too exhorbitantly.
Musically it wasn't that different from previous shows on this extended tour (being entirely acoustic), but some of the anecdotes were very funny. This reminded me of previous occasions when I'd seen Bryan at this venue - most notably at the World Sport Awards (bizarrely introduced by Roger Moore & playing the same song twice) and in fine voice with the Who playing Quadrophenia.
It appeared I was the only person speaking English in the surrounding seats at this show, which goes to show what universal appeal Bryan has. I just hope the lady behind me singing does not come out on the DVD!!
