Bryan Adams, the Canadian rock singer, will be performing an open-air concert in Muscat on Thursday for a crowd of 2,000, according to the Oman Daily Observer.
This is the first time a show like this has been planned for Muscat. According to the organizers, since the date was announced, the response from the music-loving public has been tremendous.
According to the organizers, Adams will honor some if not all requests for songs, and press photographers will be allowed to shoot pictures only for the first two numbers.
This is the Canadian’s second tour of the Middle East. In November 2000, Adams performed concerts in the UAE and Lebanon.
Adams has grown to be one of the most popular mainstream Canadian rockers of the late 1980s and 1990s.
He holds the record for the longest-running #1 single in British music history, with his hit "Everything I Do, I Do It for You" and has topped the charts in the US four times with hits "Heaven," "Everything I Do, I Do It for You," "All For Love" (with Rod Stewart and Sting) and "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?." In addition to these hits, he has been awarded the Order of Canada.
He has earned many awards, including a Grammy, an American Music Award, countless industry and songwriting awards, and three Academy Award nominations for his music and lyrics in film soundtracks.
Universal Records has just released his 12th album, entitled "The Best of Me" - Adams's end of the decade greatest hits collection, which includes two new songs, the Beatles-sounding title track, and the trippy dance track “Don't Give Up.”
The Muscat show is sponsored mainly by African and Eastern. The other sponsors are hotel Muscat Inter-Continental and Talal Al Zawawi Enterprises. Jeep and Dubai 92FM are also associated with bringing the rock star to Muscat – Albawaba.com
