Bryan Adams to play 'The Fred' in August

The Frederick Brown Jr. Amphotheater will play host to one of the world’s most highly acclaimed musicians on Friday, Aug. 5. Bryan Adams The Bare Bones Tour is the sixth concert in the BMW of South Atlanta summer concert series, with the other five announced in early February. The previous five concerts include Kenny G Heart and Soul Tour, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Jo Dee Messina with special guest Jimmy Wayne, Kool and the Gang and 10,000 Maniacs with Edwin McCain. Series tickets are still available and may be purchased at the Fred Box Office. The price for all six shows is $247.00 for prime reserved seating. Individual tickets are also available as well as a limited number of gold tables.

Bryan Adams’ career has spanned more than three decades. Constantly in demand, the celebrated rocker is on the road over 150 days a year playing rock n’ roll favorites (“Summer of 69,” “Run To You,” “18 ‘Til I Die,” “It’s Only Love,” “Somebody,” “The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You”) to sold out audiences on six continents. He continues to push those boundaries, becoming the first westerner to play in both Pakistan and Vietnam. He has achieved #1 status in over 40 countries. Holder of the record for the longest running #1 hit in the history of the British charts (16 weeks), Adams has had four #1 singles as well as racked up an impressive array of Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, a Grammy Award, American Music Awards, Juno Awards and ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards. He is a Companion of the Order of Canada, has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame as well as Canada’s Walk of Fame.
