If you were not a Top 40 fan in the '80s and '90s, you're forgiven for not knowing who Bryan Adams is. With hits like "Heaven," "Let's Make a Night to Remember" and "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)," this Springsteen of adult contemporary was everywhere. Unbeknownst to anyone but Adams himself, he kept on keepin' on even after everyone else had long forgotten his "Summer of '69." Since then, he's mostly released anthologies and live recordings and been the bane of Ryan Adams' existence. His show is recommended only if you're a fan of watching dead horses being beaten. $39.50-$79.50. Jan. 21, 8 p.m. Knight Theater, 430 S. Tryon St. 704-372-1000.
