Bryan Adams- I Fought the Law- Belgium 1988

The North American leg of Bryan Adams Get Up! 2016 tour, heating up a bitter-cold Boston tonight  and a frigid Philadelphia Monday, launched Thursday night in New York City’s Beacon Theater, and In the Studio‘s Secretary of Offense Mark Fischer was there stealing from the backstage deli tray and drinking the band’s bottled water. Bryan has always been a terrific live performer. Case in point: when I visited Bryan  at his Vancouver home way back in September 1988, the band had just completed a very successful European tour, including a  set at Werchter Belgium with 50,000 close friends in the rain. They closed the night by tearing into this sizzling performance of the Bobby Fuller Four staple, “I Fought the Law”.


 Bryan Adams released Get Up!, a new album produced by ELO mastermind Jeff Lynne. Bryan heads down under to Australia and New Zealand after next week’s US shows, returning stateside in April, and in his upcoming In the Studio interview promises a lengthy 2016 tour in support of the record. –Redbeard
