Councillor Janet Goodwin, Peterborough City Council cabinet member for city centre management, culture and tourism, said: “To have an artist of the international stature of Bryan Adams coming to perform in Peterborough is a real coup for the city.

“He has sold a huge number of albums and singles in the UK throughout his career and I am sure many of his fans in Peterborough can’t wait for his show on The Embankment to arrive.”

Gates for the show open at 6pm, with the show starting at 8pm. Residents are warned about traffic congestion in the area when the concert finishes at about 10pm.
