GREAT ES­CAPE

FOR ROCKER BRYAN ADAMS, PLAY­ING GIGS IN IN­DIA IS HEAVEN

Closer Weekly - - Contents -

We were the first artists to play a big show in In­dia back in 1993, and I’ve played there a half of dozen times since then,” Bryan Adams tells Closer of one of his fa­vorite places to tour with his band. “I love In­dia!” Now the “Sum­mer of ’69” rocker, 58, is kick­ing off new shows there in Oc­to­ber where they’ll play in Ban­ga­lore, Delhi and his fa­vorite: “I’m kind of par­tial to Mum­bai be­cause I’ve been there so many times,” he says.

Mum­bai is the most pop­u­lous city in In­dia with over 12 mil­lion peo­ple, so nat­u­rally, there’s a lot to do, from mu­se­ums to see­ing the Gate­way of In­dia arch. “Noth­ing can pre­pare you for In­dia,” says Bryan. “Ev­ery­body who goes has their own ex­pe­ri­ence. So I would say go and ex­pe­ri­ence it and then you’ll find some­thing out about your­self.” — Lisa Cham­bers, with re­port­ing by
