Adam Ant Announces 2017 North American Tour
Adam Ant fans in the States will get a chance to see the veteran pop star on stage early next year.
The U.S. dates, 16 in all, are being mounted in honor of the 1980 Adam and the Ants LP Kings of the Wild Frontier, which recently received the reissue/remaster treatment courtesy of a super deluxe edition released earlier this year. The tour's scheduled to begin Jan. 23 in Washington, D.C. and continue through Feb. 18 in San Diego, with tickets set to go on sale Sept. 30. Keep an eye on Ant's official site for further details.
"It had an energy of its own and a feel of its own. I think it was done on my own terms. I certainly feel that I didn’t compromise in any way, shape or form – musically or visually," Ant said of the Wild Frontier record during an interview with the Guardian earlier this year. "And the public grabbed hold of it. I think it was quite easy for kids to adapt the look; it didn’t cost them a lot of money. And I think it went hand in hand with that Smash Hits era, when it wasn’t so much about what was written in the article, but about ripping it out and sticking it on the wall. That hadn’t really happened since T. Rex, so it was a return to that. A return to pop."
