Bryan Adams
Two days after James Blunt the 10,000-capacity Palalottomatica in Eur hosts the prince of white-t-shirt rock himself, Bryan Adams. Performing such well-known hits as Run to You and Summer of 69, treat your mum to an evening with Canada’s favourite son. Bryan Adams still holds the record for the most continuous weeks at number 1 in the UK charts: Everything I Do, the soundtrack to Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, was played continually by radio stations in the UK for no less than 16 weeks in 1991. We got off lightly though - in Canada it was number 1 for an eye-watering 39 weeks!
