Bryan Adams, Newmarket Nights, June 20

HE never fails to impress and last night he rocked Newmarket Nights.

Bryan Adams - the man responsible for a million wedding proposals with Everything I do (I do it for you) - well and truly thrilled the sell-out crowd.

With time to chat and ample audience participation, the Canadian singer performed all of his greats including a show-stopping rendition of Summer of 69 - very nearly drowned by the crowd's appreciation.

There was a particularly big cheer for Everything I Do (I do it for you). It was 17 years since this topped the chart for a record breaking 16 weeks, and while many got sick of hearing it at the time, its popularity last night couldn't be questioned.

Other hits included The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You and Cuts Like a Knife.

Picked out by a single spotlight he performed solo acoustic versions of Please Forgive Me and Heaven.

Adams, always the heartthrob, put a lot of effort and energy into his gig. Rarely still for long he toured up and down the stage making sure everybody had the chance to feel he was singing at them.

Other acts appearing at Newmarket include Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra next Friday, Girls Aloud on July 18, UB40 and Maxi Priest on July 25, The Feeling on August 1 and Madness on August 8.
