Bryan Adams has just added a string of new North American dates for this summer. Adams, who's touring behind his recently released album, Shine A Light, has shows now on the books for Thunder Bay, Ontario; Bangor, Maine; Wheatland and Mountain View, California; Boise, Idaho; Portland and Eugene, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington.

Bryan Adams told us that during every concert, he's always looking for ways to connect with the crowd and get them personally involved with the show: “I'll see someone out there and it'll just spur on some sort of barrage of comments and then from there just get people involved and then next thing you know, someone will yell something. It's called audience participation really. It's also just trying to have laugh with everybody. If somebody wants to hear a song, y'know, sometimes we drag 'em up on stage.”
