Bryan Adams will play two concerts in New Zealand in April next year, his first gigs here since 2003.

He will be returning to NZ with his 'Bare Bones' acoustic tour, a series of solo performances which have taken place intermittently throughout his world tours since 2008.

Adams has sold more 65 million records with hits like Summer of '69 and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.

The concerts will be held on Monday 22 April at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington and the following night at Auckland's Civic Theatre.


Pre-sale tickets are available this Thursday, with general public tickets going on sale next Thursday.
