Bryan Adams wraps up biggest party in India
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 the Indian music lovers on a rock and roll joyride with his music while playing in the Delhi-NCR region for the first time. Adams, who was performing in India for the fifth time, wasted no time in getting the party started with his hit “Ultimate love”.
“My name is Bryan. It’s been a very long time since I wanted to play here. We have been coming to India since 1994 and every time I was here I used to ask our promoters where is my New Delhi show,” Adams said to an enthusiastic crowd on Sunday at Leisure Valley Park here.
“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,” he added.
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.
“The next song we are going to do is the theme of the evening and is named aGo down rockin’. I don’t know if you realize but actually (through) tonight’s show we have the biggest party in India,” said the singer, who was dressed casually in a blue T-shirt and jeans.
Featuring an over-sized video wall rolling lyrics and self-portrait black and white as well as color 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.
“Does anyone know how to dance? I am giving instructions to find the best dancers and put them up on the screen. I will really like it if somebody does an Indian dance. It will be beautiful. Or Just do something silly. Do what you like,” said the Canadian singer. (IANS)
