Winner of several Grammys, a Golden Globe, an Oscar and an array of other accolades, Lionel Richie is undoubtedly one of the most successful musicians of all time, selling well over 100 million albums internationally during an illustrious career.
Having first found fame writing and performing with The Commodores in the 1970s, Richie went on to become one of the world's best-loved artists after he went solo, earning a string of Number One singles such as 'Endless Love', 'Truly' and 'Say You (Say Me)'.
Since his self-titled solo debut in 1982, Richie has released nine full-length studio albums, scoring Number Ones in the US, the UK and around the world and featuring hit tracks like 'All Night Long', 'Hello' and 'Dancing on the Ceiling'.
Bryan Adams, meanwhile, is a huge international star in his own right, earning global success with an array of instantly-recognisable hits like 'Summer of 69', 'Run To You' and 'Heaven'.
His most recent album, Shine a Light, his 14th full-length release, landed in 2019 and reached Number 2 in the UK Albums Chart.
Now ready to get back on the road, Bryan Adams will be performing across the UK next year as part of an extensive tour set to take him to some of the nation's most unique and atmospheric stages.
After kicking things off in Bristol, Adams will go on to perform at Cardiff Castle, the Eden Project in Cornwall and Exeter's Powderham Castle during a ten-show run spanning June and July 2021.
Assuming they're able to go ahead next summer, these two headline performances are sure to be two of the biggest and best gigs central Bristol has ever seen.
