Bryan Adams 

When: Tue., Jan. 22, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $45-75

Do you think Bryan Adams has people shouting for "Come Pick Me Up" at his shows? Would anyone in the audience even get the joke? While Mr. Mandy Moore may be a superstar in his own mind, Bryan Adams is in his own right. The Vancouver mainstay extended his chart-topping '80s success well into the '90s before halting his slide from stateside relevance with 2008's 11th studio album, 11. His strengths remain the same, even in the bare-bones acoustic setting of his latest tour—anthemic arena ballads that play like a low-rent, love-obsessed Canadian Mellencamp, minus the folksiness. —Chris Parker
