We recently gave you a rundown of recommended upcoming shows to check out, but don’t overlook Bryan Adams at Purchase College.
The Canadian-born, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter will be at the college’s concert hall on April 25. Tickets for the show, which will be Adams’ local stop on his Bare Bones national tour, are now on sale. Check out what seats are available through this link.
Adams himself has described the tour as “an acoustic rendition of the last 30 years of my life.”
And he’s made a lot of music over the past 30 years.

Adams has released 10 studio albums, four live albums and a handful of anthologies since 1980, when he put out his debut album. But it wasn’t until his third album that he hit the bigtime. Cuts Like A Knife, released in 1983, put him on the charts and kept him there for a heck of a long time. His follow-up releases didn’t do too poorly either.
But don’t think Adams is simply about music. He’s also a social activist through “The Bryan Adams Foundation,” which promotes education and opportunity for children on the continent and overseas.
In addition, Adams is an established professional photographer whose work has been published in magazines as prominent as Vanity Fair, Vogue and Esquire.
So, there’s a pretty lengthy resume behind him when he takes the stage at Purchase College. Of course, the night will be about the music.
