“The reason why I’m telling you this is because it’s like magic and we need magic in our lives. So, this is not just a concert but a magical night,” he said.

The lights turned on, Adams and his band were on stage–wearing their signature black shirt, jackets, and jeans.
The concert ended with the acoustic versions of Straight from the Heart and All for Love.
