Stand And Deliver! Adam Ant to Perform in May 2016

13 Oct 2015

Adam Ant will perform the iconic album 'Kings Of The Wild Frontier' live & in sequence, plus some of his greatest hits. 

Adam Ant is to embark on 14 date UK tour in May 2016 performing the iconic album “Kings of the Wild Frontier” live and in sequence for the very first time, with many of the album tracks never having been performed live.

This follows last years phenomenal success of his debut “Dirk Wears White Sox” album tour. The 3 x platinum Kings of the Wild Frontier album, which sold over 8 million copies was originally released in 1980 and dominated the UK charts, spending more time in the top slot than any other album at the time, and went on to achieve worldwide recognition and subsequent success.

This will be a chance to hear the anthemic “Ant Music”, the breakthrough tribal “Dog Eat Dog”, and riotous title track “Kings of the Wild Frontier”, alongside the hit songs and selections from Adams considerable back catalogue.

Adam has been working with Sony Records, personally remastering a Deluxe “Kings” boxset to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this legendary album. 

Tickets go on general sale this Friday online from 9am, and from our box office at 10am.
