Thousands thrilled as Bryan rocks the Embankment
More international pop stars could be on their way to Peterborough after thousands of fans packed onto the riverside to watch a spectacular set by Bryan Adams. The Canadian superstar kept more than 9,000 people captivated for more than two hours on Friday night, singing some of his biggest hits, as well as new songs from his latest album.
The gig was part of a world tour, which has seen him play in some of the biggest cities across the globe.
Les Kidger, Director of LCC Live, who organised the event, said fans were ‘in great spirits’ during the show.
He said: “More than 9,000 fans turned out on the Embankment to see Bryan Adams and they weren’t disappointed. With a set lasting over two hours, they were in great spirits for what was one of Mr Adams’ best shows yet. The open air event with the massive production and the sun shining led to a fantastic evening.” Some f a ns got to meet the record breaking star after the concert, and a number got in touch with the Peterborough Telegraph to say how much they had enjoyed the show.
Julia Webster posted on the Peterborough Telegraph’ s Facebook page :“Class act. Our group had a great night. Bryan worked hard and it made me wish we had more of this in Peterborough. Perfect!”
Leanne O’Mahony added: “LEGEND!! Was a bit emotional, proud to have been there. The old ones are the best. Still on a high!”
The concert is one of the biggest seen on the Embankment, which has played host to Olly Murs and JLS - featuring Peterborough’s very own AstonMerrygold- in the past. Now it is hoped the success of the gig will bring other stars to Peterborough.
Mr Kidger added: “We’ve had a really positive response to the show. Fans got excited by the show and thoroughly enjoyed themselves on Friday night. The success of this show has certainly reinforced the Embankment as a music venue and we hope to work with Peterborough City Council in the future to promote further shows in the city.”
