Summer of 69 singer Bryan Adams has apologised after going on a tirade about China’s wet markets on Instagram earlier this week.
The Canadian muso had been scheduled to begin his residency at Royal Albert Hall this week, before lockdown measures came into effect.
Adams wrote on his Instagram: “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at Royal Albert Hall, but thanks to some ####ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is on now hold [sic].”
Adams has since apologised for the rant, taking to Instagram to say: “Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday. No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet markets.”

INTO THE FIRE. Title track from the same album. Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday. No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world. Here’s the appropriately titled song that would have been performed tonight at the @royalalberthall . #bryanadamsintothefire #songsfromisolation #covid19 #banwetmarkets #govegan
