I had nachos

I had nachos during his performance. There were people eating popcorn too. He was making fun of the picture someone posted on Twitter when he was talking about the bald guy not of bald people in general. Sounds like to me you are way too politically correct to enjoy any performance.

Somehow this post is not under The Peanut Gallery....Sorry for confusion.

In the KNow... what are you talking about?

The concert was held in PTC, not Tifton, Ga. PTC is one of the most fit cities in America. Good grief.

I(and I think WE) do NOT need Bryan Adams

My 1st clue for what I had paid my way into at the Fred on Fri nite was the vendor telling me "no popcorn -Mr Adams does not like the smell of fresh popped corn - same with nachos. So, no food, just beverages available tonight." (say WHAT???)

The self important Canadian Prince finally takes the stage with no back-up other than his travel pal(sitting mostly) at the piano and proceeds to "Warm" the crowd with things like "I can always tell when we are Down South,... lot's of fat sweaty people with bad haircuts."!!!???

I'm thinking "put him in a canoe with a couple water moccasins to float dowm the Chatahoo" as the crowd of swooning 30 sometin ladies laugh and cheer that nasty slur. (Duh, What up wid dat???)

The guy went on to offend bald men, over weight folks of both genders, and "southern" people in general' FWIW, I think he meant "American" whenever he said "southern".

This guy will never spend another cent to see, or hear, Bryan Adams.

Kind regards from the peanutgallery

Canadiens don't typically like American culture. Northeners are not typically as overweight as southeners, so I think he was just calling it as he saw it~ you can't fault him for that. American meaning southern is a definate no, as he is used to seeing a different type of American than what is in Georgia.

Canadians and culture

What are you talking about here?

There are plenty of Canadian "rednecks" who remind me of the same people in the southern US who are called rednecks. Ever been to Calgary or Newfoundland? It's a lot more redneck than anything Adams saw in PTC. The 4 guys I work with who are from Canada had a good laugh over that. Seems there are quite a few good redneck Newfie jokes out there I had missed.

As far as "Canadians typically not liking American culture," that really depends where you are in Canada. Some areas that are majority French-speaking aren't that crazy about American culture(Quebec City immediately comes to mind), but the predominantly English-speaking provinces are pretty much like American cities. I wouldn't call those areas "American culture" as much as I would call it "North American culture."

Loved the concert, was even better than I expected being this was his "Bare Bones Tour", I was kind of disappointed there would be no drums or bass (my instruments) which I enjoy most in watching and hearing with any concert . Bryan's excellent guitar work, voice and general showmanship, along with his excellent piano accompaniment (that guy was fantastic) really pulled off the the show.

And who's this "Inthe_know"poster? Only I'm "Intheknow"!
