EntertainmentBryan Adams gets reacquainted with Saskatoon fans
Saskatoon senior amassed $20K in doomsday prep food before her death
A friend of a Saskatoon woman who died in late April is attempting to sell off the $20,000 worth of vacuum-sealed bags full of survival food she accumulated in recent years.
Four decades into his storied career, Bryan Adams is still running on his boyish charm.
The iconic Canadian pop star, who turns 60 this year, got reacquainted with his fans in Saskatoon Wednesday night as he brought his Shine A Light tour to town.
Adams impressed from the beginning by reaching into his massive catalogue of music for his signature hits punctuated by grinding guitars and his raspy voice.
Early on, he reminded the thousands who packed SaskTel Centre that he can draw from songs from 14 albums, including his newest, Shine A Light.
Sask. Premier Scott Moe participates in Pride parade in Saskatoon
SASKATOON — Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe participated in his first Pride parade on Saturday, marking the first time a leader from his long-governing party has attended the annual celebration of the LGBTQ community.
“Good thing for you I can’t remember them all,” he told the enthusiastic crowd. “I’ll only sing the songs I can remember.”
He might not remember all the songs, but his fans sure remember the hits.
Lots of singers let the crowd take over midway through a song, but Adams let the crowd sing the first verse of his ballad Heaven before he joined in for the chorus.
Adams has generally been serving up generous concerts on his current tour of about 30 songs, focusing mainly on his more familiar classics with a smattering of new songs. Saskatoon’s show was no exception.
But the Saskatoon crowd seemed to have just as much enthusiasm for the title song, Shine A Light, from his current album, as hundreds gamely swayed their cellphone flashlights along to the tune.
Saskatoon police charge 15-year-old after threat of violence posted on social media
A 15-year-old has been charged with uttering threats and mischief, after a threat to cause violence at a Saskatoon high school was made on social media. Saskatoon police say they received a report on Monday evening at about 7 p.m. CST of a threat that was made on social media. The threat involved a school on the 100 block of Bowlt Crescent, which is the location of the joint building that houses Bethlehem Catholic High School and Tommy Douglas Collegiate. Police investigated and located a 15-year-old at a west side residence in the city. He was arrested and appeared in Saskatoon provincial court to answer to charges.
The Vancouver rocker, who began touring in 1981, teased the crowd when he introduced It’s Only Love, originally a duet with Tina Turner by pausing as though she might be there to perform.
Instead, he introduced his guitarist, Keith Scott, with whom he has played for more than 40 years.
Adams and Scott plucked the riffs like they were a couple of teens jamming for the first time and even came to a complete stop.
Fans were treated to a big helping of electric guitar, but Adams also played a few songs, including Here I Am, with just his acoustic guitar and piano accompaniment.
Dressed in black and pumping his leg, Adams encouraged the crowd to dance to You Belong To Me and cameras captured the amateur dancers for the huge screen behind him.
Later, Adams asked for requests from the crowd and served up some oldies from the 1980s like Remember (from his self-titled 1980 debut album), The Best Was Yet to Come (from 1983’s Cuts Like a Knife) and One Night Love Affair (from 1984’s Reckless).
Only in Canada: Saskatoon man buys canoe with briefcase full of Canadian Tire cash
Just ahead of the Canada Day long weekend, a Saskatoon man may have committed the most Canadian act ever: buying a full-sized canoe with a briefcase full of Canadian Tire money. Tomas Terfloth, who bought the canoe using the retailer's loyalty money on Thursday, says his now-realized goal started out as a joke on social media roughly three years ago. Once word of the endeavour started to spread, he started to receive donations of Canadian Tire money from both friends and strangers.
Saskatoon’s show was one of only seven Canadian stops on his current tour.
Adams last played Saskatoon five years ago as part of his Bare Bones tour in a much smaller venue at TCU Place.
