Bryan Adams will be at Blickling Hall this week.
The singer-songwriter-guitarist will play the north Norfolk venue on Friday, July 8, as he tours to promote So Happy It Hurts, which is the Canadian’s 15th album.
As well as a bunch of tracks from the new record, the Blickling show will include hits from across Adams’s career, such as Run To You, Summer Of ‘69 and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.
“The pandemic and lockdown really brought home the truth that spontaneity can be taken away,” Adams said.
“Suddenly all touring stopped, no one could jump in the car and go.
“The title song So Happy It Hurts is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity and the thrill of the open road.
“The album of the same name touches on many of the ephemeral things in life are really the secret to happiness – most importantly, human connection.”
Adams’s UK tour follows a trio of shows on consecutive nights at the Royal Albert Hall when he played three of his classic albums – Cuts Like A Knife, Into The Fire and Waking Up The Neighbours – in full, with some of the songs being given their live debuts.
