Story by Jack Foley

BRYAN Adams is to play a unique “11 concerts, 11 cities” tour, taking in 11 different countries in just 11 days, to support his new album 11 (which just happens to be his 11th studio LP!).

The Canadian rocker (from Vancouver) will play St James Church in London as part of the March tour, while the LP itself hits stores on March 17, 2008.

A lead single, I Thought I’d Seen Everything, has already gone onto radio playlists on both side of the Atlantic and is now available to download for free from hmv.com

11 was recorded largely in hotel rooms and backstage dressing rooms around the world during the past two years and feature the return of his long time collaborator Jim Vallance on three cuts.

The Adams/Vallance partnership was responsible for many of Bryan’s classic hits including Heaven, Summer of 69 and Run To You.

The tour will feature 11 intimate shows at some spectacular venues and will find Bryan performing an acoustic set, on stage, with just his guitar and harmonica. The London show will be on March 11 at St James Chuch in Piccadilly.

To coincide with the album and tour, an exhibition of Bryan Adams’ photographs will also be held at London’s historic National Portrait Gallery, entitled Modern Muses.
