Canadian rock legend Bryan Adams is to play venues in Bristol, Devon and Cornwall in the summer of 2021.

The 61-year-old star - who is famous for hits like Summer Of '69 and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You - is lined up to return to the UK for an open-air tour.

He had been due to perform at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year but had to postpone the dates because of the coronavirus pandemic.
