Bryan Adams is turning the clock back with Live at The Royal Albert Hall, a massive box set that captures the magic of three nostalgia-packed concerts the Canadian rock legend performed at the historic London venue in 2022.
Each night Adams performed one of his classic albums in its entirety, starting with his seminal 1983 release Cuts Like A Knife, followed by Into the Fire (1987) and Waking up The Neighbours (1991) on the second and third nights respectively.
The box set, which is set for release on Dec. 8, features a total of 35 live songs, a Blu-Ray DVD of all the performances and a 32-page photo book featuring exclusive images from each set.
The multi-media release is yet another product of a busy 2022 for the 63-year-old rockstar, a year that saw him tour extensively off the back of his 15th studio album, So Happy it Hurts.
That same year he also released Classic and Classic Part II, a pair of albums featuring re-recordings of some of his most iconic songs.
Meanwhile, fans aren’t the only ones who feel a twinge of nostalgia when they revisit the Canadian rocker’s classics.
“I am nostalgic to the music because it’s a big part of my life,” Adams told Zoomer in Oct. 2022 when discussing performing his older songs. “The thing that’s most impressive is just being able to look down at the set list of all these songs and be able to rattle ’em off one at a time.”
And while Adams could easily coast off of his extensive catalogue of classic tunes, he’s still pumping out plenty of fresh material. In fact, fans can expect the arrival of his 16th studio album — which he’s already recorded — in the not-to-distant future.
As he told The Business Times earlier this year, “Things were going good and I just didn’t want the train to slow down, so I decided it was better to just keep going.”
