OEP Live ! are pleased to announce that ADAM ANT will bring his all hits and new material show exclusively to the Fort Regent Leisure Centre, Jersey on Tuesday, 30th April 2013. ‘Stand and Deliver’, ‘Ant Rap’, ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’, ‘Friend or Foe’ and ‘Prince Charming’ to mention but a few are all there in this amazing, colourful and theatrical show.
Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint exact turning points in the history of an artist or band, but the 16th October 1980 is one such precise date for Adam Ant, when he was thrust upon the general public with his first national television performance on the BBC’s flagship music programme; Top of the Pops. The show launched Adam’s face, along with his relatively new band, into millions of living rooms in the UK and their ferocious but fresh new sound enabled the direction of British music to take a new turn.
For almost 2 years Adam and the Ants dominated the charts with their singles and subsequent albums, especially Kings of the Wild Frontier, the band’s second, which charted for 66 consecutive weeks, 12 of which were in the number 1 position.
