Before Celine Dion, and long before Justin Bieber, Bryan Adams was the "Pride of Canada". The pop rock singer/songwriter is one of Canada's most decorated recording artists. He has been nominated for 15 Grammy Awards (winning once), 56 Juno Awards (winning 18), 10 MTV Music Awards (winning once), five Golden Globe Awards, 3 Academy Awards, and 3 American Music Awards (winning once). Adams has also won two Ivor Novello Awards for his songwriting, received the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award for his charitable endeavors, and has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Canada's Walk of Fame. Adams has sold over 65 million albums worldwide and has had chart-topping hits in 40 countries. You won't want to miss his intimate solo acoustic performance of top hits like "Cuts Like a Knife", "Run to You", "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You", "Straight from the Heart", "It's Only Love", "Somebody", Heaven", "Please Forgive Me", "Heat of the Night", and more at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines on Tuesday night. Tickets to see Adams' "Bare Bones" Tour stop at Hoyt Sherman are still available for $32.50, $58.00, and $78.00 at the box office or for slightly more through Ticketmaster. The all ages concert will start at 8 p.m. Check out music from the Canadian music icon in the embedded video.

Critically-acclaimed New York singer/songwriter Martin Sexton will play Wooly's in Des Moines' East Village tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Sexton's blend of blue-eyed soul, rock, blues, and folk music in tandem with his fingerstyle guitar playing have made him a hit at festivals and venues all over the United States. Sexton won an Independent Music Award in 2009 for "Best Live Performance Album". His latest album, Live at the Fillmore, is available in stores now. Tickets to the show are $20 in advance through all Ticketfly locations or $22 at the door. This will be a 21-and-over show.
