Filipinos love power ballads. And we love Bryan Adams's hits. On January 18, Bryan Adams performed in front of the Manila crowd at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. This was his third time in Manila.

Adams and his band started the thirty-song set with "Do What You Gotta Do." It was a night filled with his classic hits and songs from his new album. He continued with "Can't Stop This Thing We Started," "Don't Even Try," and "Run to You." He told the audience that he remembers his shows in Manila even though his last visit was more than twenty years ago. His next song "Go Down Rockin'" shows just how accomplished he is as a performer. He wore a black blazer and a crisp white shirt that night (not a leather jacket), but he still has that rock star vibe on stage.
