ALL ACCESS was on hand at the L.A.'s GRAMMY MUSEUM last night as AMERICAN EXPRESS presented an intimate, sold-out "Evening With BRYAN ADAMS" inside the museum's CLIVE DAVIS THEATRE.
The evening began with a Q&A hosted by GRAMMY FOUNDATION Vice President SCOTT GOLDMAN, which covered many aspects of the GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter's nearly four decade career.
Topics ranged from the singer's early beginnings, his 1983 breakthrough album "Cuts Like A Knife," right up to his upcoming 13th studio release, "Get Up" -- co-written with his longtime collaborator JIM VALLANCE and produced by famed ELO frontman JEFF LYNNE. The album will be released OCTOBER 30.
ADAMS spoke candidly and openly, revealing intimate and sometimes humorous behind-the-scene stories in the course of the interview. An acclaimed photographer as well, ADAMS talked emotionally about “Wounded ... The Legacy of War,” a book of his photography he released two years ago to highlight the human consequences of war. He also spoke about the humanitarianism performed through the BRYAN ADAMS FOUNDATION -- an organization whose aim is to advance education and learning opportunities for children and young people worldwide.
Following the Q&A and after taking a few questions from the audience, it was time for music. ADAMS delivered a set of songs featuring the classics "Run To You" and "Heaven," which were bookended by two tracks from the new album, "You Belong To Me," plus the current single, "Brand New Day."
The entire event was recorded and will be featured for viewing at the GRAMMY MUSEUM in the near future.
Our thanks to UMe Pres. BRUCE RESNIKOFF, Dir./Promotion JAMIE HARTLEY, BWR Publicity's KIM ESTLUND, longtime ADAMS manager BRUCE ALLEN, and RIGHT WAY MUSIC GROUP's BOB CATANIA for a great night of entertainment.
