Adam Ant

Plus support

Pop icon Adam Ant returns to Liverpool Philharmonic Hall to perform his landmark solo album Friend or Foelive for the first time in its entirety, as well as classic chart-topping singles and personal favourites.

The Friend or Foe album was Adam’s first release as a solo artist and included three hit singles - 'Goody Two Shoes', 'Friend or Foe' and 'Desperate But Not Serious'. Friend or Foe is Adam's most successful solo album to date, charting No. 5 in the UK after its release, has been certified gold on both sides of the Atlantic after selling over 100,000 copies and turned Adam Ant into a household name in the USA, resulting in a Grammy nomination for 'Best New Artist' and an MTV Award for 'Sexiest Man Alive'.

From his early punk days in London to his explosion on the world stage that would lead to him becoming an icon, Adam Ant's musical career spans the course of nine albums and 22 chart-topping singles worldwide.

His 1979 debut album Dirk Wears White Soxwas the first number one album in the UK Independent Albums Chart. The follow-up album Kings of the Wild Frontier that featured his trademark burundi beat style of African drumming, spent 12 weeks at No. 1 in the UK charts and was the bestselling album of 1981. The Kings of the Wild Frontier album also produced three chart-topping singles, 'Dog Eat Dog', 'Antmusic' and 'Kings of the Wild Frontier', and won Adam a Brit Award for 'Best New Artist'. On the day of its release, 'Stand and Deliver' went straight to number one, and remained at the No. 1 top spot in the UK Singles Chart for five weeks, earning Adam the two prestigious Ivor Novello Awards for 'Best Songwriter of the Year' and 'Best British Record'.
