Bryan rocks the biomes

IT WAS the summer of ’17 for fans of Bryan Adams as he rocked the Eden Project, in the penultimate Eden Session of the year.

The Canadian superstar returned to St Austell for the first time in nearly 30 years, having played at Cornwall Coliseum in 1987.

Thirty years on from his last performance in the town, he was the star of the show in front of a jam-packed session, easily one of the busiest seen in the last couple of years.

With no support and a solid band behind him the superstar rocked out the hits for more than two hours non-stop, playing songs from his new record Get Up (UMe) and the timeless classics that has seen him have 13 studio albums to his name.

Keith Scott on lead guitar was a particular highlight, with Adams calling him “the man with the fastest fingers in Cornwall” and their mix of guitar-heavy classics and stripped down acoustic songs had the fans singing along throughout.

All through the set he played right up to the crowd, entertaining from the very first note of the night - and with plenty of crowd interaction he didn’t leave fans wanting any more, coming back for an encore of four songs, including covers of C’mon Everybody and All Shook Up.

Along with some of the new tracks from his album, the multi award-winning star played a whole host of his classics including Cloud Number 9, Run to You, Summer of ’69 and (Everything I Do) I Do It for You from the soundtrack to Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.

Known for his duets over the years he also performed songs such as When You’re Gone which he sung with Mel C and he brought the curtain down on the night with All for One All for Love a song he recorded with Rod Stewart and Sting, although he admitted that he was unable to persuade Hot Rod and Sting to join him in the former clay pit for the encore.

But as he said it was a “beautiful night”, and it certainly was.

It certainly was a beautiful night. I loved every second of Bryan´s Eden Session. He was fabulous, great performance and gelled easily with the audience. I do hope he returns again soon, would love to see him live again. Lovely guy, lovely personality and terrific entertainer. He holds his notes and stays in tune. Not many singer´s sound that good live! He can make a guitar talk and perform constantly. Simply amazing atmosphere as dusk fell on Eden. Lights from the stage and Biomes, the breeze gently blowing through my hair, everyone singing along. Just felt so perfect in every way. Such a fantastic night, in fact the best of my life. I totally loved my 1st Eden Session with Bryan Adams. Thank you for the best night of my life xXx
