Bryan Adams bought his “I’m so happy it hurts tour” to Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 9th- Bryan hasn’t played MSG since 1994. Last night, he sold out the venue, just like he did in 1994 and I was at that show too. Sting was playing at the theater they have under the garden and he came out and played “All for Love” with Bryan. He ended the show last night with an acoustic version of it and it was simply spectacular.
Bryan and his long time guitarist Keith Scott have been together since the beginning of the band. As you can tell from my photos, I love watching, listening and shooting him! Keith Scott is the man.
They played a 26 song set list that spanned his career. He did play seven songs from his popular “Reckless” album. Christmas came early for us in attendance and as per a request Bryan played his famous Xmas song “Christmas Time”. That is the first time I heard that live. It was great even in June! He also did a special tribute to the late Tina Turner. He told the story about how the collaboration with her came about. You need to YouTube it., it was funny and emotional.
Bryan still is have a blast on stage and it shows. His fans are coming out, and getting a little bit of their past while having a blast. “It’s only love”!!!
