It will also stop at Powderham Castle in Devon, Canterbury and Leeds, as well as The Eden Project in Cornwall and the Cornbury Music Festival in Oxfordshire.

Adams is best known for releasing a string of hits in the 1980s.

His songs include Summer Of ’69, Heaven and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.

Live music has been hugely impacted by the coronavirus crisis and Adams is one of a host of artists who had to postpone tour dates as a result.

He had been due to perform a string of dates at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year.

However, he apologised after he faced criticism for sharing an expletive-filled post on Instagram lamenting how his planned performances in the capital had been postponed due to the health crisis.

He wrote: “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some f****** bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus.”

Following a backlash, Adams apologised to “all that took offence” to the post, saying his intention had been to promote veganism.

Tickets for the outdoor shows go on sale at 10am on December 11.
