Up And At ’Em, Adam Ant!

The post-punk English musician is returning to our shores this summer for a North American tour featuring nearly 40 dates. Adam Ant’s schedule is made up of gigs in 22 states, along with two stops in Canada.  

In a video announcement posted on his website today Adam said hello from London, telling fans that he planned to brush up on his old songs for the 2013 excursion in addition to showing off his new tunes.
