Rock legend Bryan Adams has today announced he will perform in Montrose next year.
The Canadian singer – famous for hits such as Summer of 69 and Run to You – will play outdoors at East Links on Sunday August 7, as part of his Get Up Tour of the UK.
This is the rocker’s only outdoor show in Scotland which is being hosted by the Montrose Music Festival.
Adams said: “I’m delighted to be back on the road next year. It will give me an opportunity to perform tracks from my latest album, Get Up, as well as some of my earlier classics. It’s going to be a special show, performing outdoors in Montrose. I hope my Scottish fans are able to join me.”
The outdoor show is being organised in partnership between concert promoter, LCC Live and the Montrose Music Festival.
LCC Live’s director, Les Kidger, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing Bryan Adams to Montrose for his only Scottish outdoor show next year. We expect tickets to sell fast, which is testament to his reputation as one of the world’s most loved pop stars.”
