One of the most exciting live musicians in the world is returning to the UK next year for a special three-night residency at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Bryan Adams will bring his effortless stage presence and incredible vocals to the iconic venue, performing one of his classic albums in full each night, alongside his most loved hits from 13 to 15 May 2024, produced by TEG Live Europe. Adams also today announces UK dates for his global ‘So Happy It Hurts’ tour, which will see the Canadian icon visit Cardiff, Coventry and Sheffield the same month.
Across three nights in May, Adams will perform one album in full each evening – ’18 Til I Die’, ‘Reckless’ and ‘So Happy It Hurts’ – plus a selection of some of the greatest hits from his phenomenal career, spanning an incredible 40 years. The multi-million-selling artist will kick off the residency with his double-platinum No.1 album ’18 Til I Die’ on Monday, 13 May 2024. Adams’ seventh studio album, released in 1996, features hits including Top 10 single Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman? and The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You.
This is followed by ‘Reckless’ on Tuesday, 14 May 2024, Adam’s fourth studio album, released on his 25th birthday in 1984. The record has now sold more than 12 million copies worldwide, making it his biggest-selling album to date and featuring some of Adam’s biggest hits, such as Run To You and 4x Platinum Summer of ‘69. Adams’ residency will conclude with ‘So Happy It Hurts’, his critically acclaimed 15th studio album, on Wednesday 15 May 2024. Described as “unabashedly upbeat” by Clash with Adams “doing what he does best” (Classic Rock), the Royal Albert Hall stage will be filled with positivity, happiness and a celebration of freedom.
Bryan Adams says: “Our last visit to the Royal Albert Hall was such a great series of shows, it was a no-brainer to want to come back and do it again. However this time we have a whole new perspective on how to make it work and with three different albums. The band and I are really looking forward to it!”
Following the residency, Adams will bring his ‘So Happy It Hurts’ Arena Tour to Coventry’s Building Society Arena on May 17, Sheffield’s Utilita Arena on May 18 and Cardiff on May 19. The shows will feature tracks from the Grammy-nominated album studio album, as well as his biggest hits.
