Bryan Adams to speak about his photography at Tulsa’s Philbrook Museum, perform at Brady Theater Monday
TULSA – Singer-songwriter Bryan Adams will bring his solo acoustic “Bare Bones Tour” to the Brady Theater, 105 W Brady, for an all-ages show at 7 p.m. Monday.

Before performing at the historic Brady Theater, Adams will sit down in the Patti Johnson Wilson Hall at the Philbrook Museum of Art, 2727 S Rockford Road. Adams and Philbrook Director Rand Suffolk will engage in a conversation about the rocker’s acclaimed career in photography.
In the late 1990s, Adams became curious about making photographic self-portraits for his album covers and chose to pick up the camera himself. That serendipitous decision was the beginning of a successful photographic career, parallel to Adams’ impressive achievements as a singer, songwriter and producer.
Aside from being published in British Vogue, L’uomo Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, and Interview, he shot advertising campaigns for Guess Jeans, Converse, Montblanc, Fred Perry, and Escada.
The new book, “Exposed,” is a retrospective of Adams’ photography and features portraits of friends and colleagues in the entertainment, fashion and art industries, including Morrissey, Ben Kingsley, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, Louise Bourgeois, Lindsay Lohan, and Judi Dench. This book, Adams’ first comprehensive monograph, ‘exposes’ not only unknown facets of his subjects but also the depth of Adams’ photographic faculty.
Admission for the event is free for Philbrook members and $9 for non-members. Space is limited. Doors open at 2 p.m. To RSVP, click here.
