Bryan Adams postpones 2021 UK summer tour as Covid crisis rages on

Bryan Adams has postponed his UK summer tour for 2021.

The Canadian rock icon had been due to head to the UK between June and July for an open-air tour.

Adams, 61, is best known for releasing a string of hits in the 1980s including Summer Of ’69, Heaven and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.

His summer tour would have seen him travel the UK, stopping in Widnes on July for a performance at the DCBL Halton Stadium.

The outdoor tour was also due to visit Cardiff Castle, Scarborough Open Air Theatre and Telford.

However, most of the gigs have been re-scheduled for 2022 while three have been cancelled altogether, much to the disappointment of fans.

All original tickets are valid for the new dates, it has been confirmed.

The three cancelled gigs- which include Bristol City Centre on June 26, Exeter Powderham Castle on July 6 and Canterbury Spitfire Ground on July 8 – were unable to go ahead due to “scheduling issues”.

Those due to attend the cancelled gigs will be refunded automatically.

New tour dates

29 June 2022 – Eden Sessions

01 July 2022 – Scarborough Open Air Theatre

02 July 2022 – Widnes DCBL Halton Stadium

03 July 2022 – Telford QE2 Arena

09 July 2022 – Cornbury Festival

10 July 2022 – Leeds Harewood House

11 July 2022 – Cardiff Castle

Bryan Adams tour is just one of a number of events being cancelled in the North West and beyond amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this year, Lytham Festival announced it was postponing its 2021 summer event, along with Beat-Herder Festival.
