Adams' hits include Cuts Like A Knife, Summer of '69, Kids Wanna Rock, Can't Stop This Thing We've Started and he is known as one of the great songwriters of our time.
Adams has been awarded the Order of British Columbia and is a Companion of the Order of Canada. He has received an award for Artist of the Decade and has been inducted into the Juno Hall of Fame. He has a star on Canada's Walkway of Fame and has added his hand print to the Wembley Square of Fame in celebration of his 25th show at the famed stadium.
