VANCOUVER, BC - FEBRUARY 12:  Brian Adams performs during the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics at BC Place on February 12, 2010 in Vancouver, Canada.

Live Nation Entertainment is bringing the Canadian hit-maker into 20 arenas coast-to-coast this spring and summer.

TORONTO — Live Nation is launching Canadian rocker Bryan Adams on his first Canadian concert tour in 20 years.

The 20-city coast-to-coast arena rock show will start in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 11, and close out in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 22.

Adams last toured Canada in 1992 with his sold-out Waking Up the World show.

Vancouver-raised Adams will also bring his full band on the road with him, including guitarist Keith Scott, drummer Mickey Curry, keyboardist Gary Breit and bassist Norm Fisher.

That marks a departure from recent years when he performed hits like "Cuts Like A Knife", "Summer of 69" and "Kids Wanna Rock" during a Bare Bones solo acoustic show.
