The concert had featured the music veteran’s current 21 track compilation, Ultimate, that released in November last year.
Last night, legendary singer Bryan Adams managed to put Delhi-NCR on 'Cloud No. 9' as he crooned his classic hits to an overflowing audience at Gurugram's Leisure Valley Park.
The 58-year-old sang cult numbers like 'Can't Stop This Thing We Started', 'Summer of '69', 'Everything I Do I Do It For You' and many others, to a frenzied audience.
From playing his rock anthems and love songs to crooning “Kiki do you love me” to expressing his “Ultimate love” for India, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Bryan Adams took Indian music lovers on a rock and roll joyride with his music while playing in the Delhi-NCR region for the first time.
At the concert, he said that they have been coming to India since 1995, but he performed first time in Delhi-NCR. Excited about the capital city, he always asks organisers about his show in Delhi. He added, “We have taken this long but I want to tell you that how incredibly excited we are to finally be here. Thank you for having us.”
With the rock and roll beats and groovy tunes from his guitar, Adams seamlessly took the audience back in time with his classics “Can’t stop this thing we’ve started” and “Run to you”, which segued into the theme of the evening.
Dressed in a plain black polo-t-shirt and dark blue denims, Bryan Adams was brimming with energy as he jumped around the stage and kept fans engaged. Keeping him company were guitarist Keith Scott and other band members, who, apart from the songs, treated the concert attendees with some electrifying guitar strums.
Grammy-winning singer said,“The next song we are going to do is the theme of the evening and is named ‘Go down rockin’. I don’t know if you realise but actually (through) tonight’s show we have the biggest party in India.”
Featuring an over-sized video wall rolling lyrics and self-portrait black and white as well as colour videos with monochrome lighting, the night brought together people from all walks of life to sway and swoon to the music filled with nostalgia.
Adams, like a wizard, had a control over the appreciative crowd as he sang “You belong to me”, and the audience followed his instructions to put their best dancing foot forward.
Other hits performed by Adams included 'Run To You', 'Cuts Like A Knife', 'Heaven', 'When You're Gone' , 'Cloud Number Nine', 'Everything I Do I Do It For You', 'Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman', '18 till I die' and 'Ultimate Love'. Fans swayed along with the beats as the veteran weaved magic with his voice and his guitar. He briefly sang Drake's 'Kiki Do You Love Me' while singing “Somebody”.
He spoke less and sang more, thanked those who were waving Canadian flags and said, "Yes! For those who don't know, I am Canadian!”
The Ultimate Bryan Adams India Tour was organized by ENIL and Mirchi Live. After performing in Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Bengaluru, he wrapped his visit with a gig in Gurugram.
