Superfan meets Bryan Adams on Shine A Light World Tour 2019

20th June 2019, and an audience of thousands in Berlin is singing along in pure ecstasy: “Those were the best days of my life!”

Among them is James, the winner of our VIP Ticket competition. For him, a dream has come true on this warm summer evening. “As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of Bryan Adams,” says James. “There are so many private moments I’ve lived through with his music in the background.” In Berlin, the tally of such moments was further added to.

James is one of 16,000 entrants to our competition who shared with us the most beautiful moment in their lives to win a unique VIP experience at the Bryan Adams concert in Berlin. Our winner not only got to enjoy the concert in the company of thousands of like-minded people but was also invited to take a look behind the scenes of the Shine A Light World Tour. But the highlight of the occasion was when James met Bryan in person, shook his idol’s hand and took a selfie with him.

James, VIP ticket winner

Our video (see above) captures James’s reactions as he experienced this very special moment. It won’t come as a surprise to see what an absolutely unforgettable experience it was for our winner. In the words of the classic song: “Those were the best days of my life!” The Summer of 69 resonates with so many people. This applies not only to James, who got to meet his idol, but also to DHL and Bryan Adams. Both have a very special relationship to the year 1969. For the Canadian rock star, it was the inspiration for his world hit, while for DHL, it was the year in which the company was founded.

As Official Logistics Partner, DHL is not only delivering the Shine a Light World Tour 2019 to fans at many different venues around the world. DHL and Bryan are also pursuing the major goal of no longer producing any logistics-related emissions by the year 2050. Consistent with this long-term aspiration, DHL has planted a tree for every ticket sold on the world tour.

By the way: The Shine A Light World Tour 2019 is far from over, and we’re organizing another meet & greet opportunity with Bryan for a lucky fan. And as an added bonus, the winner will also receive a signed Gibson DHL/ES-235 Special Edition guitar, which will be handed over personally by Bryan at a concert.
