Bryan Adams in Oberursel 2011

What a night to remember! Most of the day, concert goers had been wondering about whether it would be a rained-out concert like it had been the night before with the Scorpions performance. I was told it started raining when the band came out to play and it stopped raining right when the concert ended.

Fortunately, we were blessed with dry skies, good music, a wonderful atmosphere around the arena, and a top performance by Bryan Adams and his group.

While waiting, we could read the twitter feed for our entertainment. This new form of entertainment at a concert was new to me. Goes to show how long I had not been to a concert.

And here is my favorite picture of “A Night to Remember” with the monitor showing Bryan Adams facing the crowd.

Bryan really hasn’t changed much from the time I saw him in concert in WĂŒrzburg in 1988. I have though – I jumped a bit less and applauded without getting bloody palms.

Our son asked whether Bryan stopped in mid-song to have the audience complete the lines, and yes, he had and most of us remembered enough to sing along, more or less.

Another highlight was the spontaneous performance by a young lady out of the audience. Tina, a student from Frankfurt International School, joined Bryan in a song onstage and also added a little dance performance. Saw Tina at the U-Bahn station later on and her reaction to my statement Hi Tina, great performance! showed she had become an instant celebrity already. This is definitely a night for her to remember as well, especially since she got to hug Bryan a few times.


  1. Still amazes me that an FIS student danced with legend Bryan Adams on stage!! 😛
