Today became 'Ant Tuesday' with Adam holding a press conference at Stamford Bridge, appearing on John Humphrys' On the Ropes for Radio 4, trending on Twitter for the first time and even an Ant exposé from Gary Numan in this morning's Metro newspaper.
Performing a private showcase (pictured, right) for a carefully selected audience of media and industry knobs, Adam revealed his new band and forthcoming full UK tour. Further to the previously announced Brighton show exclusively revealed by Ant Lib last week, Adam has added more dates for May and June 2011 as well as a screening of the Prince Charming Revue with Q&A at the Coronet in

Adam also addressed issues surrounding the much talked about new album, with release plans now shelved until 2012. So, apparently this tour will not be to promote new material.
