Bryan Adams, the Canadian rock sensation, who is a strict vegetarian, would have his personal chef travelling with him during his five-day India tour, beginning from February 12.

The 51-year-old who became a chart-topper with hits like 'Summer of 69' and 'Everything I Do', will have a 16-member team accompanying him, the organisers said in a statement here today.

The singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer who has been nominated for the Grammy Award 15 times has also made some special requests ahead of his India tour.

Adams, often seen in his trademark blue jeans and white T shirt, has requested that the windows of his hotel room open to the oustide he hates rooms without windows, organisers said.

Adams, who is also a photographer and whose work have been published in acclaimed magazines like Vogue, has requested for adjustable incandescent lighting in his rooms as he does not favour floresent lights. A philanthropic who runs the 'The Bryan Adams Foundation' that aims to advance education opportunities for children and young people worldwide, Adams has also decided to minimise the use of airconditioned rooms, they said. The Canadian star does not use AC in his room or his car unless it is necessary, they added.

Adams, who studied in a strict British military school, has also refused to avail of a stretch limousine, preferring a sedan instead.

Adams' band have specially requested for minimum distance between the stage and the crowd as they are keen on interacting with their fans, organisers said.

As per the rockstar's wishes, a hospitality party would be thrown after each show. Adams, known for his soft romantic numbers, will perform on the eve of Valentine's Day in Bangalore. The show, which is expected to be attended by scores of his fans, will have forklifts.

The rockstar will be performing in Mumbai (February 12) followed by shows in Bangalore, New Delhi and Hyderabad. He is expected to enthrall his fans with his legendary repetoire, including '18 Till I Die' and 'Run to You' and numbers from his latest album 'Bare Bones.'
