“This is the fortieth anniversary of Reckless – how did that happen?”

Well, it’s not – that doesn’t fall until November. But such a small detail wasn’t going to stop Bryan Adams from throwing a party on Tuesday evening as part of his three-night residency at the Albert Hall. Dividing the evening into two halves – an album set, followed by one comprised of “just a bunch of random songs” – the groover from Vancouver delivered even more nostalgia than usual as he held aloft his finest work.

Prior to Reckless, Adams’s career had been slow to sprout. Response to his eponymous 1980 debut had been so indifferent that for the 1981 follow-up he’d suggested the (ultimately rejected) title Bryan Adams Hasn’t Heard of You Either. Cuts Like A Knife, from 1983, had finally got some traction thanks to the title-track and Straight From The Heart charting in Canada and America, but it was Reckless that finally made him a global phenomenon. Containing six hit singles, including the still ubiquitous Summer Of ’69, Run to You and a duet with Tina Turner on It’s Only Love, Reckless shifted 14 million copies, including a million in Canada, the first domestic artist ever to do so. Aged just 25, Adams became one of the biggest stars in the world.
