The veteran rocker didn't let down the massive crowd, belting out his classics one after another sending the crowd into a frenzy.

KATHMANDU: Adrenalin hit unprecedented levels as the valley's young and the young at heart flooded Dashrath Stadium in thousands on Saturday to watch Canadian rockstar Bryan Adams create history. On a beautiful moonlit night one of the biggest names in international rock stardom enthralled the capital while etching his place in history with Nepal's first rock concert featuring a global music icon.

The excitement was palpable. Youngsters from all backgrounds and ethnic classes poured into the venue to experience the never-before event in the nation. The expat community showed up in surprising numbers as did the middle aged generation who came of age in the eighties to the irresistible tunes that catapulted the gruff voiced singer into mega stardom.

The veteran rocker didn't let down the massive crowd, belting out his classics one after another sending the crowd into a frenzy. The exuberant audience sang along to his more popular hits like "Everything I Do" and "Please Forgive Me".



A lucky member of the audience gets to share the stage and the microphone in a duet with Bryan Adams himself.


Security was mobilised in full force with uniformed police personnel stationed in every direction and as far as the eye could see. Entry was in chaos as organisers and security struggled to control the unprecedented crowd. Traffic outside the stadium was forced to a crawl after the concert as fans swarmed the roads.


It was most certainly 'a night to remember' with the 'one night love affair'.
