With a crowd of over 15,000 swaying to the music, Mumbai was at its energetic and spirited best as Canadian rocker Bryan Adams belted out hits after hits at his rocking concert, inviting wah wahs from the audience, Times of India reported. The audience broke into catcalls from the word go, when Adams kickstarted the concert.
The stage was huge, with two massive screens adorning each of its side and one behind him, for the comfort of those who could not catch a meaty glimpse of the 51-year-old, who rocked as if he truly believes in “18 till I die!”
He sang around 20 songs, including ‘Let’s make a night to remember’, ‘Please forgive me’, ‘How do ya feel tonight’ – but the audience did not seem to have had enough of him. They went berserk as Adans sang ‘Summer of 69’ and asked the audience to sing along with him, the report said. But even a breather between two songs by Adams sent the crowd chanting ‘Bryan, Bryan, Bryan`, the newspaper reported. Dressed in black, Adams too was exhilarated about the response, saying, “I came first in 1994 and this is the fifth time I am performing in Mumbai. It’s one of my best shows!”
He made sure to interact with the audience very well, and even invited a girl on stage to sing with him. Later, as he asked the 15,000 plus crowd to switch on their digital cameras and phone cameras, and go flash as he sang “Please forgive me”, the MMRDA Ground in Bandra-Kurla Complex glittered like never before.The concert also saw a performance by Indian choreographer Shiamak Davar, who danced to his popular songs with his famous troupe. – Daily Times
