Dec 17 2021, 10:44 pm

In some sad news for Bryan Adams fans, the legendary Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist announced that his upcoming Vancouver New Year’s Eve show has been cancelled.

BC’s new rules and restrictions brought in on Friday, December 17 mean that all New Year’s Eve events are cancelled.

He was set to appear with special guests 54-40 and Mother Mother.

A tweet from Adams reads, “Due to the continuing onset of the Omicron virus, the Provincial Government has limited attendance of all events and cancelled New Year’s Eve events, which means that the New Year’s Eve concert starring Bryan Adams is cancelled.”

The last time the Grammy and Juno award-winning artist performed in Vancouver was back in 2018.

On Friday afternoon, BC announced that events operating with 1,000 guests or more would have to reduce capacity to 50% until January 31.

In another notable New Year’s event, Dave Chappelle was scheduled to perform at Roger’s Arena on New Year’s Day.

It’s unclear how other events like the Chapelle show might be impacted, but Daily Hive has reached out to Live Nation for more information, and whether or not other cancellations are planned.
