Review: Bryan Adams, Magic Summer Live, Guildford

You really couldn’t have asked for better weather for a festival at the weekend.

After the sad demise of Guilfest, Magic Summer Live came to the rescue with a vast array of acts and I headed down there on Sunday.

The festival had three stages, all in close proximity.

While scoffing ice-creams and applying sun lotion at the main stage, we saw Kim Wilde performing 1980s classics such as Kids in America.

We also admired The Overtones for donning skinny jeans in this weather.

We learned Lessons in Love with Level 42, went Up the Junction with Squeeze and cooed to the fabulous James Morrison.

His voice is something else live and he really got the crowd going with uplifting tracks Up and Broken Strings.

All was set for rocker Bryan Adams and he kicked off with Waking Up The Neighbours.

At his only UK appearance this year, the crowd most certainly got spoiled as he churned out hits such as Cloud No. 9, Summer of 69 and Run to You.

With a very respectable set of 90 minutes, he closed with All for Love.

A well-organised festival all round. Fingers crossed for the same next year.
