Bryan Adams coming to Coachman Park in Clearwater
After Bryan Adams played a jam-packed concert at Clearwater's Coachman Park in February 2016 -- his first local concert with a full band in a dozen years -- he told Ruth Eckerd Hall officials he loved the experience so much that he couldn't wait to come back.
One year later, he's getting his wish.
Adams will return to Coachman Park for a concert on Sept. 10, according to Ruth Eckerd Hall, which has been booking concerts in the park. Tickets are $20 and up, and they go on sale Saturday.
The Canadian rocker has sold more than 60 million records over the years, and is known for smashes like Summer of '69, Cuts Like a Knife and Everything I Do (I Do It For You). His show last year was a plugged-in affair, as we wrote in our review:
"Adams runs a pretty tight ship as a frontman, with his band all attired in matching dark blazers, and his hair coiffed tightly enough to crack glass. But while his look was all business, he apparently enjoyed his day-plus in Clearwater, riffing on meeting drunken fans in a Mexican restaurant and feeling awed by the sight of dolphins while jogging on the Memorial Causeway Bridge. 'I know it’s not a big deal for you people to see dolphins, but it’s a really big f---ing deal for me,' he said. 'I love dolphins!'"
