From touring with Craig David and Jesse J to helping the United Kingdom achieve its highest finish in the Eurovision Song Contest this century, the world is very much Adam Wade’s oyster.

The 26-year-old drummer, who hails from High Wycombe, has travelled to all four corners of the world to play at some of the globe’s biggest venues for some of the country's most renowned artists.

His talents have taken him to Australia, Saudi Arabia, and all across Europe.

But, ‘Smiley’, as he is known to his colleagues and family, was seen back in his hometown supporting his older brother, rugby, and NFL player, Christian.

This is because the former England and Buffalo Bills star is holding his inaugural ‘Next Gen You’ rugby camp between August 2 and 4.

Around 50 children between the ages of 12 and 16 have signed up for the event, where they will receive expert coaching from Christian and his team, as he hopes to help inspire the next generation of rugby players.

Speaking at his brother’s camp, Adam said: “Christian’s vision is to create an environment for young people to come along to, where they are able to get expert coaching with him being present.

“You always see sportspeople do these types of camps where their name is mentioned, but they either appear briefly for one day, or they don’t appear at all.

“Christian on the other hand wants to be actively involved to help the kids.

“It’s been great as he is finding time to be here and I think that is unique.

“I’m really proud of him."

“It’s one thing to have your name on a camp, but it’s another to actually be present and he’s been talking to everyone, and this will help him leave a legacy for the next generation of rugby players.”

On the camp’s first day [August 2], the 26-year-old was seen playing the drums as guests arrived, showcasing the abundance of talent he possesses.

And his skills will be on display to a whole new world, as he will be playing at the Rock in Rio concert in Brazil later this year.

The 2022 edition will see big names such as Coldplay, Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa, Green Day, Guns N Roses, Justin Bieber, Billy Idol, and Jason Durulo being just some of the musicians that will be appearing, and Adam will be alongside the A-listers in South America.

Rock in Rio concert averages an attendance of around 85,000 people.

He continued: “Personally, I think that [Rock in Rio] could be the pinnacle of my career as it’s one of those places that you don’t really get to go to.

“It’s hard to be associated with artists/musicians who get that call to do that gig.

“And I know it’ll be something that I can look back on and be proud of.

Finally, on his experiences at this year’s Eurovision, the Buckinghamshire-born drummer jokingly said: “I wouldn’t say I personally was the reason why [we did so well],”

“I’m just the drummer and Sam did all the hard work.

“Louis Allen was the guitarist, and Jay Vermer was on keyboards so there were three of us in the band and Sam was obviously singing.

“Of course, you can’t really see us in the videos, but we were there!

“That again was an amazing experience and that’s another thing that you don’t really get the call for, but I’m glad it happened and now we’re going to host it, which is great!”
