Following the hugely successful Kings of the Wild Frontier tour earlier this year, which saw Adam play his classic and now iconic album to over 30,000 fans in sold out venues across the UK, Adam Ant has announced ANTHEMS The Singles Tour.
The tour will showcase Adam’s impressive back catalogue of material including hit singles, B-Sides and personal favourites. The album, Kings of the Wild Frontier (1980) became a worldwide hit, spending 12 weeks at number 1 and won the Brit Award for Best British Album. The singles, Kings of the Wild Frontier and Antmusic both hit number 2 in the UK chart and Dog Eat Dog reached number 4.
As ‘Antmania’ swept the nation, Stand and Deliver hit the number 1 spot in May 1981 and stayed there for 5 weeks becoming his most successful single and winning him the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for songwriting. On its release, the follow up single and album Prince Charming went straight to number 1 and a further 12 singles went top 30, at one point Adam had 8 singles in the top 40…in one week!
