summer of '69 in karachi

Bryan Adams was in Karachi on the 29th

A couple of people I know went there and had a hell of a good time, Adams supposedly knows how to rock a crowd

Of course, professional musicians like Adams know that lip-synching is considered a boo-boo among civilized societies - if only someone would tell those goons on Pakistani TV

Karachi is a much maligned city, and cricket matches there are usually called off by visiting teams, on account of security so it was a nice surprise to see a top music star coming over to perform - Karachi maybe has less of a security problem than London did at the time of the IRA bombings but unfortunately it's bad image has refused to go away
