Playbill: Bryan Adams Tonight At Cullen Theater

Bryan Adams has an almost sadistic talent for creating pop masterpieces that, like them or not, get stuck in your brain like a government-implanted homing device.

Since venturing south out of Canada in 1980, the man has been leaving his indelible stamp on pop music at large. "Summer Of '69" is quite possibly his most popular and beloved song, chronicling his love of the torrid sexual position. Yes, it's true. Adams came out in an online interview in 2008 to say that the song title had nothing to do with the "Summer Of Love" and carousing with buddies, but people touching each others genitals with their mouths, namely him and his high school girlfriend.

Adams also has the distinct honor, along with Richard Marx, as being one of the go-to artist's for wedding songs. We wish we had a nickel for ever ceremony where his "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?" or "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" were played.

Lately the man has been dabbling in photography, no doubt a clever ruse for the diminutive Canadian to take pictures of naked chicks with impunity. Adams hits town tonight for an acoustic set at the Cullen Theater. Adams has been trotting this intimate show around the country for about the past year, offering up stripped-down renditions of his hits and offering up wry commentary on each.And maybe even more startling profane explanations for some.
