About Adam Ant
Pop icon Adam Ant will perform his landmark, solo album Friend or Foe for the first time, live in its entirety across the UK. Following a world tour to sold-out venues throughout the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Adam Ant confirms his 2019 Friend or Foe tour.
New wave band Adam and the Ants first formed in 1977, releasing three albums – Dirks Wears White Sox (1979), Kings of the Wild Frontier (1980) and Prince Charming (1981) – before disbanding in 1982. That same year, Adam Ant embarked on a solo career with the release of debut solo album Friend or Foe.
This album continued Adam's success across the globe – notably in the USA where it garnered three top 20 hits on the Billboard Top 100 and secured him a place on the 1983 NBC Television special Motown 25. His second solo album, Strip, produced the top five UK hit Puss in Boots – but the BBC banned both the video and the song for the follow-up single Strip. While recording his third solo album, Vive Le Rock, Adam set out on an acting career by appearing in a theatre production of Entertaining Mr Sloane at The Royal Exchange in Manchester.
Adam Ant's extensive hits include the classics Antmusic, Dog Eat Dog, Goody Two Shoes, Prince Charming, Kings Of The Wild Frontier, and the Ivor Novello, award winning Stand And Deliver.
