Canadian rocker Bryan Adams has told how he is “looking forward” to playing in Montrose on Sunday.

The final preparations are taking place to transform the East Links into an outdoor music venue, for the rock legend’s only outdoor show in Scotland as part of his Get Up Tour.

Adams said: “I’m really enjoying my tour and am looking forward to heading up to Montrose for my only Scottish outdoor show.

“People can expect two hours of music, and the crowds in Scotland are fantastic.

“It’s going to be great!”

The show is being organised in partnership between concert promoter LCC Live and the Montrose Music Festival and is the headline act of this year’s MoFest.

Tickets have sold “exceptionally well” for Bryan Adams, Claire Kidger of LCC Live said.

She added: “From the moment we announced Bryan Adams’ Montrose show, anticipation and excitement have been building.

“With just days to go until the show, we have a full team on site transforming the East Links into an outdoor music arena.

“The response we’ve had from music fans from across Scotland has been phenomenal and we’re delighted with ticket sales.

“For those who have a ticket, it’s going to be an amazing night, but for those who haven’t yet got a ticket, you’d best be quick as tickets are selling fast.”

Claire continued: “Personally, I’m extremely excited to be bringing Bryan Adams to Montrose. He’s amazing live and always puts on a great show!”

Adams is renowned for his ‘Everything I Do, I Do it for You’ single, which topped the singles charts worldwide, including a whopping 16-week run at the top of the UK singles charts in 1991.

The song featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and for this Adams received his first Academy Award nomination and Golden Globe nomination.

More recently, in October, Bryan Adams launched his 13th studio album, Get Up.

David Paton, chairman of the Montrose Music Festival, said: “There’s a real sense of excitement building around Montrose and within the local community as fans from across Scotland get ready to welcome Bryan Adams for his only Scottish outdoor show this year.

“What a great finale to a very successful ninth Montrose Music Festival.”

Gates for the show open at 6pm on Sunday and Bryan Adams will take to the stage at about 8pm.

There is no support act.

Guests are also reminded that there is a pending rail strike for Sunday and to check revised timetables, or consider alternative travel arrangements.

The show organisers have teamed up with Happy Bus, which is running buses locally to Arbroath, Dundee, and Forfar, as well as to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Falkirk. For more information visit www.happybus.co.uk
