Bryan Adams is backing our environmental crusade and planting a tree for every fan who goes to a gig on his tour.

The Summer of ’69 singer makes his tours as green as possible.

Plastic water bottles are banned and the backstage catering is plant-based.

And on the Canadian singer’s Shine A Light tour, ­partner logistics firm DHL is planting a tree for every ticket sold.

As he backed our MillionMirrorTrees project to fight deforestation, he said: “Early on I adopted recycling, solar panels and water filters instead of plastic bottles at home. We’ve adopted the same principles on tour.”

Bryan, 60, estimated the tour has led to a million trees being planted and says he plans “more shows, more exhibitions of photos, and planting more trees” next year.

The UK leg of his tour kicks off in February in Belfast and takes in London’s Wembley Arena.
