Bryan Adams and his band wore white t-shirts, jeans and sneakers and played white instruments on a bare stage to give the lighting designer a chance to throw some interesting patterns on the trio. See more »
Adams and his small band (just two other guys: Keith Scott on guitar and Mickey Curry on drums) perform over 20 songs for a young Japanese audience.
There is no denying this is good rock 'n roll, but too much of it sounds the same. One of the reasons, of course, is that small band: they can only produce guitar and drums sounds. However, that's all "Cream" had but Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker had a little more diversity in their sound.
Adams and his buddies here may not be very versatile, but at least they produce solid rock songs that sound, regardless of how alike they appear. Adams had a good rapport with the audience, too.
Knowing the language barrier, I was shocked at how many of these Japanese kids knew the lyrics to his songs! Maybe these kids no more English that I assumed. (We sure don't know their language - see "Lost In Translation!").
