Adam says:

“I thought it would make an exciting start to the year to take the Dirk show to UK cities instrumental in the development, support and eventual triumph of Adam & The Ants.

“The intimacy of the four Islington Assembly Hall shows were such a gas that I felt it would be appropriate to choose venues with a similar atmosphere….

“As a lover of vinyl, it also furthers my fervent commitment to the survival of the beautiful, traditional, labour of love of the 12” vinyl L.P.

“After all, you can’t sign a download…

“So in the face of the sterile perfection of the digital age, I invite you all to an evening of 100% British LEATHER ROCK xxxx

“Don’t be square be there…..!”
