Adam Ant Plays Free Gig at Proud, Camden

Adam Ant at Proud, CamdenAdam 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...
