RETURNING NEXT MARCH FOR GET UP
AUSTRALIAN TOUR, including winery dates
On the cusp of performing to an audience of millions at the 2015 Toyota AFL Grand Final this weekend, Frontier Touring and a day on the green are thrilled to confirm that Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Bryan Adams will return to Australia next March for the GET UP tour.
Bryan will return to the a day on the green stage for the first time since 2005 for four events nationally with special guests Baby Animals and The Superjesus (*not playing Perth). Bryan will also perform at Sydney’s Allphones Arena and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena (Frontier Touring).
Canada’s most successful singer ever has been making musical history for more than three decades and has gathered more than 65 million album sales, 21 top ten hits and seven number one singles, topping the charts in more than 40 countries around the world in the process.
Adams releases his thirteenth studio album GET UP on 2 October (via Universal Music Australia). Produced with famed ELO frontman Jeff Lynne (The Beatles, Randy Newman, Tom Petty) and co-written with his long-time collaborator Jim Vallance, the release features nine brand new songs and four acoustic versions:
“There is a carefree feeling about this album, and in many ways it is the album I wish I'd been able to make 25 years ago.” – Bryan Adams
The music video for lead single ‘Brand New Day’ was directed by Adams himself and stars much-loved actress Helena Bonham Carter and Theo Hutchcraft from the band Hurts. Adams tore through the track at his Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park performance earlier this month, watch it here.
Adams is also an acclaimed photographer. His portrait of The Queen, taken on the occasion of her Royal Jubilee, was used on a Canadian postage stamp and his critically acclaimed exhibit ‘Modern Muses’ was on display in 2008 at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
As one of the biggest rock superstars of our time, Adams has been the recipient of the Order of British Columbia and the Order of Canada; been nominated for three Academy Awards and five Golden Globes; and received 18 Juno Awards, an American Music Award and five ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards.
Those who purchase tickets to see Bryan Adams perform live in Australia next March will have the exclusive opportunity to add his new album GET UP (out 2 October) to their order for the special price of $14.99 (physical copy) or $9.99 (digital copy).
A consummate performer, Adams is touring somewhere in the world over 100 days of every year.
Don’t miss the music icon performing songs from his forthcoming album GET UP as well as rock anthems ‘Heaven’, ‘Summer of ‘69’, ‘Run To You’, ‘Cuts Like A Knife’, ‘Can’t Stop This Thing We Started’, and ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ amongst so many more next March.
Stellar support at the winery shows will be provided by Baby Animals and The Superjesus, fronted by two of the most charismatic women in Aussie rock in Suze DeMarchi and Sarah McLeod. After combining for the sold-out ‘She Who Rocks’ tour earlier this year, the bands are thrilled to be joining the tour.
Baby Animals have been warmly embraced since reuniting and releasing the ARIA Top 20 album ‘This Is Not The End’, their first new music since 1993. Singles ‘Email’ and ‘Stitch’ sit well next to fan favourites like ‘Early Warning’, ‘One Word’ and ‘Rush You’ in the set list.
The Superjesus are sounding better than ever with their new single ‘Setting Sun’, the band’s first release in 12 years. It maintains their signature sound with a thoroughly modern edge.. Expect to hear ‘Gravity’, ‘Secret Agent Man’, ‘Shut My Eyes’ and ‘Down Again’ as The Superjesus make their a day on the green debut.
