(LONDON) 19th July, 2017 – Due to overwhelming demand, and after playing sold-out shows to over 75,000 fans around the world throughout the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand, pop icon Adam Ant has saved the best for last by capping the year with one final homecoming performance of his phenomenally-successful ANTHEMS – The Singles tour at The Roundhouse in London on Thursday 21st December. Tickets will be available from The Roundhouse, www.BookingsDirect.com, 24hr Ticket Hotline at 0844 249 2222 and select authorised ticket agents.
Adam will play his classic chart-topping singles as well as rare singles, B sides and personal favourites.
From his early days in London as an underground, post-punk artist with a cult-like following to his explosion on the world stage that would lead him to become one of the most iconic artists of the 80s, Adam’s musical career spans the course of nine albums and 25 chart-topping singles around the world.
Adam has sold more than 40,000,000 albums and had eight singles in the Top 40 in one week, globally. His debut album, ‘Dirk Wears White Sox’, was the first number-one album in the UK on the newly-created UK Independent Albums Chart that debuted in 1980. His follow-up album ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ catapulted him to the world stage, spent 12 weeks at number one in the UK (being crowned Best Album at the 1982 BRIT Awards), produced three chart-topping singles ‘Dog Eat Dog’, ‘Antmusic’ and ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ and featured his trademark Burundi Beat style of Central African drumming, a musical signature that remains to this day.
As Antmania continued to sweep the nation, his third album, ‘Prince Charming’, introduced his landmark single ‘Stand and Deliver’ that topped the UK Singles Chart for five weeks.
His fourth album, ‘Friend or Foe’ with its massive hit ‘Goody Two Shoes’ and follow-up hit ‘Desperate But Not Serious’, turned him into a household name and earned him a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist in 1982.
With his crack five-piece band behind him featuring two drummers, Adam Ant live is no excursion in nostalgia. It’s a thrill ride through some of the most dynamic and thunderous pop music ever recorded.
