Thou­sands thrilled as Bryan rocks the Em­bank­ment

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page - By Stephen Briggs @Peter­bor­oughTel

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.”
