Following his recent sold out UK tour, pop icon Adam Ant is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the release of his landmark “Kings of the Wild Frontier” album with a newly-remastered reissue (Sony Legacy UK) and North American tour. Adam will play the classic album in its entirety, and in sequence, including the first-ever live performance of the track “Feed Me To The Lions”.
“I’m really looking forward to performing the ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ album live and in sequence plus my other favorite songs from the repertoire, in the USA,” Adam said.
With his iconic white strip and swashbuckling charm, Grammy-nominated recording artist Adam Ant is one of the most recognized faces of the 80s
His massive, global hits including “Goody Two Shoes”, “Stand and Deliver”, “Prince Charming”, “Room at the Top” and “Wonderful” have crowned charts worldwide (At one point, he had eight singles in the global Top 40 charts in one week). He also delved into an acting career with film/TV roles including “Nomads”,” Love Bites”, “Slam Dance”, “The Equalizer”, “Sledge Hammer!”, “Tales from the Crypt” and later penned his autobiography.
After sold out USA and UK tours in 2012, Adam has just released his new album “Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter”. The album, a musical autobiography with 17 musical stories about his life and things that interest him, debuted at #8 on The Official Chart in the UK and climbed to #3 on the UK Indie Albums Chart. Now, with his band, The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse, Adam is preparing to cross the pond again with a massive 2013 tour.
Adam Ant is an English musician who gained popularity as the lead singer of New Wave/post-punk group Adam and the Ants and later as a solo artist, scoring ten UK top ten hits between 1980 and 1983, including three No.1s. Ant was also a star in America where he not only scored a string of hit singles and albums, but was once voted sexiest man in America by the viewers of MTV. He is also an actor, having appeared in over two dozen films or television episodes between 1985 and 2003. Since 2010, Ant has undertaken a major reactivation of his musical career, performing live regularly in his hometown London and beyond, recording a new album and with two full-length UK national tours now completed and a US national tour now scheduled. His present comeback continues and thrives despite concerns about such activities being merely another symptom of the mental health issues which were in considerable part responsible for his lengthy spell of near-inactivity spanning the late 1990s and 2000. -wiki
