The Canadian rocker made his stop in Summerside for his Bare Bones acoustic concert tour.
Adams’ show was more intimate, as it consisted of himself with his guitar and a pianist.
Many fans eagerly waited for it to begin as they stood in line.
Tyler Clark was one of them, and he said he has been listening to Adams’ music for 17 years.
“I’ve been a huge Bryan Adams fan since I was five,” said Clark.
For him, his love for the famed singer stemmed from his father and aunt being fans.
Clark said he was excited for the concert and he had seen Adams’ play twice before.
“I’m sure it will be great. For him to take songs he wrote for an entire band and strip them down to its ‘bare bones’ will work really well,” he said.
Michelle McNally said she’s been a dedicated fan for as long as she can remember.
“I love Bryan Adams’ music. I’m a really big fan and I’m excited to be here tonight,” said McNally.
He puts a lot of emotion into all of his songs, she said.
“You can close your eyes and capture what he’s feeling in the music.”
She said she was looking forward to a wonderful time.
“Like everyone else here tonight, we’re going to enjoy the music.”
Sheridan Barlow is 10-years-old, and she said she couldn’t wait for the concert to begin.
She said she loves his hit song, Summer of ’69.
“My dad was born in 1969, so it just hit me”.
Her mother, Maxine, said Barlow was excited for the concert since the tickets went on sale and she was counting down the days.
“I love Bryan Adams,” said Barlow.
Brian Ramsay said Adams’ songs where what he grew up listening to.
He likes everything about Adams’ music.
“Everybody has their own likes and dislikes, and I like his,” said Ramsay.
He said the concert would be just as good without the full band.
“It may not be as loud, but the music will still be there.”
During the concert, Adams said it was a different kind of show and it was more like sitting and playing music for friends.
