Adam Ant to ‘Charm’ Skegness audience

EIGHTIES music legend Adam Ant is set to appear in Skegness this weekend as one of the headline acts in this year’s SO Festival.

Adam Ant and The Good, The Mad and The Lovely Posse will perform in the Embassy Theatre on Sunday, July 1 at 8pm.

“The legendary Adam Ant will bring all his hits and new material to Skegness,” said a spokesperson.

“‘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 October 16, 1980 is one such precise date for Adam Ant, when he was thrust upon the general public with his first 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 two 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 one position.

“This show really is not to be missed. It is pure entertainment,” they added.

Tickets cost £29.50 per person. For more information call 0845 674 0505 or visit
