Hailing From Ontario, Canada, Bryan Adams started off as the singer in a glam-rock band, Sweeney Todd before striking out on his own and going on to pen some of the biggest hits of the 80s and 90s including the epic ‘Everything I Do (I Do It For you); ‘Heaven’, ‘Cloud 9’, ‘Run To You’, ‘Straight From The Heart’, Please Forgive Me’, ‘When You’re Gone’ (feat. Melanie C), and the globally celebrated anthem ‘Summer Of ‘69’.

Dalby Forest - Nile Rodgers & Chic (22 June)

Thetford Forest - Sting (22 June) and Tom Jones (28 June)
