Adam Ant Plays Free Gig at Proud, Camden
Adam played a modest live acoustic gig earlier this evening with Rapid Fire Radio vocalist/guitarist Mick Lynes for the
Bloody Awful Poetry Elysian Nights night of alternative music and performance at Proud Camden in north London - his first (known) live concert performance of 2011.
Adam performed a 22 minute set consisting of mostly covers: Get It On (T-Rex) / I Walk the Line (Johnny Cash) / Peggy Sue (Buddy Holly) / No Fun (Iggy & the Stooges) / Physical (Adam & the Ants*) / Honky Tonk Women (Rolling Stones).
Despite the recession-busting gig on offer this evening, Adam's back to performing for the bourgeoisie with two shows planned for the 350-capacity 100 Club (and possibly Ronnie Scott's) later this month.
With tickets again currently priced in excess of half an tonne each, we just hope he's making a fair donation to the Oxford Street venue's survival campaign in return...
