BRYAN Adams let rip at "bat eating, virus making, greedy b*****ds" for causing coronavirus as he blamed China for cancelling his gigs.
The Summer of 69 rocker – who was due to perform at London's Royal Albert Hall last night –
said the "world is now on hold" in an expletive-filled outburst on Instagram.

The Canadian star, 60, posted a video of himself singing new track Cuts Like A Knife from lockdown at home.
And he accompanied it with a message to fans in which he took aim at the controversial live animal markets in China where Covid-19 is thought to have originated.
He raged: "Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall
"But thanks to some f***ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy b******s, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus.
"My message to them other than 'thanks a f**king lot' is go vegan."
Experts say the coronavirus pandemic most likely started in a wet market in Wuhan that sold bats and pangolins.
Other theories claim it may have escaped from a virology lab in the same city.
Adams – whose hit (Everything I Do) I Do It For You topped the UK chart for a record 16 weeks in 1991 – is a prominent vegan and animal rights campaigner.
He also told fans: "To all the people missing out on our shows, I wish I could be there more than you know.
"It’s been great hanging out in isolation with my children and family, but I miss my other family, my band, my crew and my fans.
"Take care of yourselves and hope we can get the show on the road again soon.
"I’ll be performing a snippet from each album we were supposed to perform for the next few days."
This month, The Sun reported how wet markets in China were continuing the brutal sale of live turtles and frogs despite the pandemic.
Officials in Beijing shut down wet markets after early cases of the coronavirus were linked to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, yet they were allowed to re-open last month.
Coronavirus has so far killed at least 286,000 people worldwide, with more than four million confirmed infections.
