“I’m honoured to be co-hosting this year’s JUNO AWARDS alongside Russell Peters. We have an incredible music community in Canada and this is the night we celebrate its success,” Adams said.
“Third time’s a charm! And who better to share the stage with than Bryan Adams?! I’m actually really excited to be back, and looking so forward to making the 2017 Juno Awards a memorable one,” Peters said.
Adams won his first Juno award for Male Vocalist of the Year for Cuts Like A Knife in 1983. Thirty-four years and 18 Juno awards later, Adams’ celebrated career also includes a Grammy Award, two Ivor Novello songwriting awards and in 2006, induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Peters returns to the Juno stage for a third time following his Gemini Award-winning performance as host at the 2008 Juno Awards in Calgary and host of the 2009 Juno Awards in Vancouver.
