The singer initiated a dance competition during 'You Belong To Me' which really got the audience up on their feet.

"Amazingly, Dylan won!" said dad, David.

Pointing at Dylan, Bryan Adams said: "I think we've found our dancer tonight" as he made his way through the cheering crowd where he was lifted onto the stage by band members.

Bryan Adams continued: "It's the best dancing I've seen in a long time."

He was introduced to band members and left with the drumstick plectrum and a special crew t-shirt.

Overjoyed Dylan said: "It was the best moment of my life" which was confirmed by his dad who said he couldn't get to sleep when he got home.


Mum Claire added: "It was an amazing evening topped off by Bryan's kindness towards Dylan. And what a show!"

Heading back to the car, Dylan was recognised by other concert goers who gave him a high five and also praised his dance moves.

The concert was a roaring success and a glimpse into the remaining line-up for the 77th Eisteddfod.
