I flew 1000 miles to see this show in that venue. I have been a fan since the 1980's. I think he's better now, both physically and vocally. This band is tight sounding. In these smaller venues, they could just turn off the amps. Nowhere can you stand 10 feet from the stage and honestly say it was not a great experience. So what some words were muffled by the guitars? If you don't know the words by now, you had no right being there :-) I say, keep rocking, Stuart! Thank you for bringing it all back for me!!! xoxoxo

Saw Adam last night at the Greek Theater in L.A. the venue itself is fantastic, great seats, great sound, great lighting. The staff were ALL very courteous, helpful & professional. Adam delivered hit after hit with enthusiasm & an amazing level of energy for a 60- something-year old man who's had knee problems over the years. He's a lean, mean, sex machine...still! I saw him back in 1984 when I was 16 & truthfully, Adam seemed every bit the performer he's ever been. I. Couldn't say that about 5 or 6 years ago when I saw him in San Francisco. He had a belly on him & his stamina just wasn't there. It was kind of sad but he's really turned himself around. I absolutely loved the "Kings of the Wild Frontier" tour he did earlier this year...he came back in all his glory & slayed the audience by playing that unforgettable album from start to finish...& some extras to keep us on our feet. Last night was no different...we were dancing to all the "Anthems" all night long. Simply stellar!

Now don’t let me convince you. Go and see for yourself! I have been throughly rocketed since a young age by this true artist and enigma, so therefore, I am biased! But just because of that fact, I have made it a point over the years as His energy never waned, to make it a point to talk to newcomers and open up and ask people in the town we are in to come to the show! Sometimes offering them a spare ticket I know of or may have. So I am never taking too much of a chance because at the end of the show I come to find out they will be there the next time he comes around and they usually “ARE”!!!! Adam Ant will just, excuse the term, “Knock your socks off!!!” So check Him out next time you hear he is playing. Better yet, go to his website or Facebook page and add an alert for your town or the next closest one and when he comes around, which he will, go!!! The band is young and love touring. Two drummers w/ a Hot little girl drummer Its rock n roll. It’s sexual. Fun. Never a disappointment

ADAM was great and he's 67 - Rock on! the band is better than the one from a couple of years ago! I love that album I burned through it when I was 18. I was near the top of the building and the sound was fine so I wonder about the Wilbur's shape has sometime to with the bad mix. I got a parking ticket so out the additional 40 bucks, some strange meter thing that changes to residential after 6pm - my bag but my car was the only one on the street when I came back so I think it's a cash grab

The show was "wonderful" even though he didn't play wonderful. Loved that he played songs you haven't heard in years. A true performer, he is ageless with pure energy. the band rocked the house with 2 hours of non-stop ant music. The opening band glam skanks were awesome, would love to see them again in the future. Would highly recommend this show to anyone. ant music forever.

Admitedly, I was hesitant to attend the show because I'd been a huge Ants fan and didn't want to be disappointed seeing him this late in life, the way I did after seeing Devo. But Ant did not disappoint and put on an energetic, 2-hour show. I liked the two drummers, although they largely played the same beats, unlike the original Ants. Regardless, it was a terrific show and he played a wide variety of the old material, even some 7" B-sides, which I really appreciated. The crowd was 3/4 women, which I thought was hilarious. I guess the man's still got it! My only criticism was the sound at the Phoenix, which sucked. The sound person should be fired. For the first half of the show, you could barely hear the vocals over the drums. For the entire the show, you had to wait a few bars before you could figure out what song they were playing because the guitars were pretty much non-existent in the mix. Despite this, the band put on a very worthwhile show. Glad I went.
