Bryan Adams is looking for a local marching band

Rockstar Bryan Adams is looking for a high school marching band to help out on a video shoot on Monday, Aug. 30.

It's not every day a rock star uses social media to find a band, but that's what Bryan Adams is doing.

The rocker, who came out of the Vancouver music scene of the late-70s after moving to North Vancouver with his mother, has asked his Twitter followers to send him recommendations for a high school marching band.

Specifically, he needs them for an outdoor video shoot, he says in the tweet.

Adams adds in a separate tweet that the shoot is Monday, as long as the weather holds, so it appears the "Summer of '69" singer will be spending some of the last days of the summer of '21 making a video.

The request was only posted to Adams' Twitter account; his other social media hasn't mentioned the need, yet. So far, a couple of school representatives have tweeted back at him, suggesting their bands. 

Adams signed a new record deal in July with the plan to release new music later this year.

Last year, Adams was widely criticized for a tweet he posted (and then deleted), attacking "bat eating, wet animal market selling, virus making greedy bastards" who he blamed after his shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London were postponed in May 2020. He later attached an apology to anyone offended by a post on Instagram of him singing.

Vancouver Is Awesome has reached out to Adams' team to find out more; this story will be updated if/when they respond.
