Hamal claimed, We had to convince Adams to perform in Nepal since he is already on a world tour. He will be performing in India and Bangladesh as part of the Bryan Adams Live Full Band Show World Tour, and we have managed to procure two days of his time for a tour of Nepal as well. The real idea is to support our Nepal Tourism Year 2011.

It was neither his team members nor three popular Nepali rock bands sharing the stage with him.When Bryan Adams rocked Kathmandu in Nepal’s first international concert Saturday night, it was neither his team members nor the three popular Nepali rock bands sharing the stage with him who shared the limelight.
Adams, who flew in from Dhaka, where he had sung at the inaugural programme of the 2011 World Cup, set Kathmandu’s crowds cheering during his nearly two-hour concert by beginning with American rock singer Bob Singer’s 1976 hit, ‘Katmandu’, and later, introducing himself by saying, ‘Hello Nepal, I am Bryan Adams’.
he 51-year-old star chose the 27-year-old struggling singer and when Brinda clambered up on the stage breathless, still not believing her luck, asked her her name and what she did.The crowds behaved beautifully, showing the authorities’ security concerns as exaggerated. Nearly 5,000 police personnel as well as a private security company had been deployed to ensure the concert went off without any untoward incident.The crowds not only featured youngsters and expatriates but also eminent banks. Also seen queuing up at the gate were Radhesh Pant, chief of Kumari Bank, and Anil Shah, CEO of the newly started Mega Bank.
