Snap Scene: Adam Ant, The Palais, 15th October 2017

Following sold out North American and UK tours, pop icon Adam Ant celebrated the 35th anniversary of his landmark ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ album with a newly remastered album reissue and Australian and New Zealand tour. Adam played the classic album in its entirety and in sequence.

“Kings of the Wild Frontier” introduced the Burundi Beat style of thundering, infectious, Central African drumming to a pop-music audience. Adam captured the live sound by incorporating two drummers into his band, a musical signature that remains to this day.

The platinum album, originally released in 1980, crowned the UK Album Chart and spent more time in the top position than any other album at the time. The album went on to achieve worldwide recognition and produced massive chart-topping singles including the classic “Antmusic”, the breakthrough tribal onslaught of “Dog Eat Dog” and the epic title track.
