Bryan Adams Turns 64: Revisiting the Legendary Rocker’s Photography in Zoomer Magazine

Bryan Adams turns 64 on Nov. 5 and, as often, the Canadian rock legend displays no indication of slowing down. 

Later this thirty day period, he heads again out on the road, commencing in the United Arab Emirates and then travelling to South Africa right before winding up in Greece to kick off the European leg of the tour. Hitting a few continents inside of the system of a month? No sweat.  

As well, in early December Adams drops Live At The Royal Albert Corridor, a three-album box set recorded past calendar year at the famed London venue about the system of three nights. Each and every night, Adams performed just one of his classic albums in its entirety — his breakout album Cuts Like A Knife (1983), platinum-advertising Into The Fire (1987) and chart-topping Waking up The Neighbours (1991) — channeling his trademark rock star showmanship into nostalgic performances that prompted just one reviewer to declare, “the kid truly does continue to wanna rock.”

And it turns out that Adams appreciated the efficiency so a great deal that he’s searching to do it once again with a trio of diverse vintage albums when he returns to the Royal Albert Hall for a 3-evening residency in 2024. 

Adams, of training course, also has a exclusive link with Zoomer. Alongside with serving as the publication’s Editor At Substantial, he’s also photographed an comprehensive checklist of luminaries who’ve appeared on the magazine’s handles over the a long time.

From musical marvels (Tony Bennett, Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen, Harry Belafonte, Robbie Robertson and Sting to identify a several) to literary legends (Margaret Atwood, John Irving) to stars of stage and display screen (Christopher Plummer, Dustin Hoffman, Mia Vardalos, Michael J. Fox), Canadian icons (Wayne Gretzky, Gordon Lightfoot) and, of course, even Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, as well as the Dali Lama, Adams’s lens has captured a revered roster of notable topics.
