Adam Ant - Anthems Tour

So...back in March, I had to have surgery to remove a tumor from one of my parathyroid glands...as I was laying in the pre-op room, I was browsing my phone and saw that Adam Ant tickets were going on sale the following day (while I would be in the hospital recuperating).  Thank goodness for my wonderful sister, who KNOWS how much I love him....

She said, don't worry, I will take care of it and get us VIP tickets and she did.  So I have been waiting for months and months for September 23rd to get here and finally...it did!!

We were in the recently renovated Variety Playhouse - they did a fabulous job renovating this place.  They raised the stage so if you sit, you can see over the mosh pit.  I am short so I don't like standing in the pit because I can't see but we were on the 2nd row and our seats were FANTASTIC!

We were allowed to go in early (since we had VIP tickets).  He sang lots of old songs - all old songs - off his first 4 albums.  I was in pure heaven the entire time.

Set List:
Beat My Guest - I couldn't believe he opened with this - what a way to start the show
Vive Le Rock
Dog Eat Dog
Apollo 9
Friend or Foe
Antmusic
Room at the Top
Desparate But not Serious
Cartrouble (one of my faves)
Zerox
Young Parisians - another surprise - not sure I ever heard him sing this live
Prince Charming
Gotta Be a Sin
Puss 'n Boots
Can't Set Rules About Love - again - a surprise but great to hear
Christian D'or
Strip
Kings of the Wild Frontier
Greta X - I loved that he sang this - was not expecting that!!
B-Side Baby - another fave of mine
Stand & Deliver

Encore:
Goody Two Shoes (expected, of course)
Lady / Fall In - so happy!!
Red Scab
Physical (You're So)

Wow! Wow! Wow!
An amazing show - we danced the entire time and I loved that it was so up close and intimate.  He was interactive with the audience and looked and sounded amazing!!

These are some of the favorite photos I took at the show (click on the photo for a close up).
