TORONTO - Canadian rocker Bryan Adams is touring Canada for the first time in 20 years.
The "Straight from the Heart" hitmaker's last series of coast-to-coast gigs was 1992's Waking Up the World tour.
Adams will perform 20 shows in 20 cities, beginning April 11 in St. John's, N.L. and wrapping up June 22 in Winnipeg.
While the Vancouver-raised singer has performed acoustic shows in recent years, this will be a full-blown arena rock show.
With smash songs including "Cuts Like A Knife," "Summer of 69" and "Heaven," Adams has toured six continents and achieved No. 1 status in over 40 countries.
