Multi-platinum, recording artist Bryan Adams has announced his return to Ireland on his Get Up 2016 tour coming to Dublin’s 3Arena on May 10th and the SSE Arena, Belfast the following night, May 11th 2016.
Bryan Adams is set to release his thirteenth studio album, Get Up (UMe), on October 30th. Produced by famed ELO frontman Jeff Lynne and co-written with his long-time collaborator Jim Vallance, the album features nine new songs and four acoustic versions.
Get Up is a solid collection of beautifully-crafted rock songs, from the fast and furious up-tempo tracks such as lead song “Brand New Day,” “You Belong To Me” and “Thunderbolt,” to the gentler songs such as “Don’t Even Try” and “We Did It All,” plus the alternative Adams-produced acoustic versions, highlighting Adams’ unique voice and depth.
Get Up is a body of work that Adams is truly proud off and with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer Jeff Lynne – whose credits include The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Randy Newman and Tom Petty, as well as being the co-founder, producer and member of the Traveling Wilburys – at the helm shaping the record, Get Up will sit nicely alongside Adams’ earlier classics.
“It came together quite organically,” recalls Adams, “song by song, working with Jeff producing over the past couple of years whenever he had time. It was a great partnership as it gave me plenty of time to write the songs, most of which are a collaboration with Jim Vallance. We all worked primarily over the internet from Canada, Europe and LA, sending demos and parts of songs until we got it right.”
”There is a carefree feeling about this album,” adds Adams “and in many ways it is the album I wish I’d been able to make 25 years ago.”
Adams continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his critically-acclaimed album Reckless last year, with a sold-out global headlining tour. This summer, Adams co-headlined the BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park Festival with Rod Stewart.
