Adam Ant will play his landmark 'Friend or Foe' album 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. The massive hit 'Goody Two Shoes' reached number 1 in the UK and Australia, and hit number 6 in the USU Billboard Chart. 'Friend or Foe', the single, was another top ten hit in the UK while 'Desperate But Not Serious' was the album's third UK smash. 'Friend or Foe', his most successful solo album to date, made number 5 in the UK and was certified gold album status on both sides of the Atlantic after selling over 100,000 copies. In the USA, the album reached number 16 on the Billboard album chart and turned Adam Ant into a household name, 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 onto the world stage that would lead to him becoming an icon, Adam Ant's musical career spans the course of nine albums and 25 chart-topping singles worldwide... at one point, Adam had 8 singles in the UK Top 40 in one week!
The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise. In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town!
