You’ve got to hand it to new wave legend Adam Ant; through good times (pop superstardom and “Antmania” in the ’80s) and bad (pulling a starter pistol on strangers in a London pub in 2002 and being placed in a psychiatric ward), he’s always managed to stand and deliver in the end. From his spiky beginnings running with the OG U.K. ’77 punks, which quickly led to a role in Derek Jarman’s Jubilee and his embryonic Adam and the Ants being managed by tastemaker Malcolm McLaren, it was clear that Ant wasn’t long for the punk underground. And when McLaren absconded with all of Adam’s Ants – to form Bow Wow Wow, no less – Ant was free to fully take the creative reins, recruiting a new group of what we can only call “colorful pirates” and quickly penning hits like “Antmusic” and “Dog Eat Dog.” And Ant was the spectacular centerpiece, looking like a glorious hybrid of David Bowie, Elvis and Errol Flynn. For this rescheduled show to make up for a cancellation in the wake of Hurricane Irma, a rejuvenated Ant promises “Anthems” and nothing but. Get ready for the toppermost of the poppermost.
