If you caught Adam Ant in Connecticut last summer, his band promises to be even more sensational playing at a local concert later this month.
In the 1980s, the post-punk New Wave superstar brought his art school education to the screens of MTV-watchers with a series of coy, tongue-in-cheek videos and hit songs -- including “Goody Two Shoes,” “Desperate But Not Serious,” “Stand and Deliver,” “Strip” and “Ant Music.”
Adam Ant brings The Anthems tour to The Ridgefield Playhouse at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 22 as part of the Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity.
From his early days in London as an underground, glam-punk pioneer with a cult-like following to his explosion on the world stage, Ant’s musical career spans the course of nine albums and 25 chart-topping singles and more than 40 million albums sold worldwide.
In Ridgefield, Adam Ant is expected to play his classic chart-topping singles as well as rare singles, B sides and personal favorites.
Kicking off the night will be opening act, Prima Donna.
The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street in Ridgefield.
