Don’t drink? Don’t smoke? What do you do? Go see Adam Ant


“Don’t drink? Don’t smoke? What do you do?” Adam Ant demanded in 1982.

The non-smoking part is fine nowadays — you can’t do it inside the Revolution Center, anyway — but Ant is hoping you’ll drink a couple when he performs there Sept. 4.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 3 at Ticketfly for $29.50 general, $49.50 VIP.

Don’t laugh. (OK, not too much.) Ant has been making a run at a comeback in the past few years, touring regularly and delivering a new album called “Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter,” which is surprisingly well-received on Amazon.

Don’t worry, though, if it’s the ’80s you want, it’s the ’80s you’ll get. From the press release:

“Fans can expect a massive, full-on musical attack that’s bigger and better than ever,” Adam says.  “It took years to record this very personal and intimate album.  And I’m excited to share the experience with my friends and fans.”

In concert, fans can expect all of the hits including “Goody Two Shoes”, “Stand and Deliver”, “Prince Charming”, “Ant Music”, “Strip” and “Wonderful” as well as deep cuts from Adam’s early days and selections from the new album.
