"This was the concert everybody wanted, this was the concert everybody got."  Vancouver Province

"Bryan Adams is back with a masterclass in anthemic rock 'n' roll."  Express, UK

"It's not hard to see why Bryan Adams album Reckless has stood the test of time. Thousands of fans piled into the Scotiabank Centre to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary and what they got was a roaring performance that felt impossibly personal in the 11,000 seat arena."   Halifax Metro

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Bryan Adams will be plugging in once again and hitting the road with his full band in April to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his iconic rock album, Reckless. Promoted by Live Nation, the RECKLESS 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR will kick off on April 11 in Houston, Texas at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, before hitting cities throughout the U.S., including New York City, Las Vegas, Chicago, Dallas and more. Tickets go on sale starting Feb. 28 at A complete list of tour dates is below.

Adams will be performing a set that will honor not only the 30th anniversary of Reckless — a deluxe version of which was released in November 2014 featuring exclusive expanded bonus material — but also his endless catalogue of rock classics. Originally released in 1984, Reckless produced a record six huge hits: "Run to You," "Kids Wanna Rock," "Somebody," "Summer of '69," "One Night Love Affair" and "It's Only Love," a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. Reckless also gave Adams his first U.S. #1 on Billboard with "Heaven," as well as a Diamond Award for over a million copies sold in Canada. The album was the turning point in Adams' career, resulting in his hugely successful World Wide in '85 Tour.

As Canada's best-known ambassador, Adams has spent the last three decades making music history. He has sold upward of 65 million records, toured six continents and achieved #1 status in over 40 countries around the world. He has been awarded the Order of Canada, has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and has a Star on Canada's Walk of Fame. Adams has also been nominated for — and won —several Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Grammy Awards. He has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been inducted into Wembley's Square of Fame.
