With Adam Ant returning to Detroit next month we figured it would be a good idea to get ahead of the game and check out a show or two beforehand so we dusted off the ol MCB credit card and tagged a trusted friend out in Denver CO to cover the show and provide you with a little preview of whats to come at The Cathedral Theatre on August 27th

Adam Ant, Ogden Theatre Denver CO
July 24th, 2013
Adam Ant, Post-Punk genius and Pop/New Wave artist, best known for his late 70’s-early 80’s music, tore up the stage at the historic Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. Kicked off in San Diego, his most expansive North American tour since 1995 is to promote ‘Adam Ant is the Blue Black Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter’ and follows on the heels of his successful European tour.
The latest album is a flagellant, intimate expose
of the singer/songwriter’s demons
both personal and professional.
While the album itself may have garnered mixed reviews, the live show is a raucous adventure spanning legendary hits and modern, introspective punk-ballads. Adam hasn't lost his flair with signature nautical regalia and clean, powerful vocals.
The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse
stomp out an explosive performance
set to rocket Adam back to the top.
‘Marrying the Gunnner’s Daughter’ may have seemed a brooding opening to a brilliant set-list but there is no denying the energy and grace which flowed from the stage and set the crowd raving for more. The packed house showed a strong mix of old-school fans and youthful hipsters all bathing in the charismatic presence of one of the U.K.’s best. Adam shot about the stage and threw down his signature moves to woo the crowd and entice them to his world.
Overall a great live concert and one I wish I could experience again when he hits Detroit’s own Cathedral Theatre on August 27th 2013. - TracyK
