The inimitable Adam Ant has announced three Westcountry dates as part of his spring 2014 UK tour.
Joined by his talented young band, The Good The Mad and The Lovely Posse, and with support once again from glam rockers New Killer Shoes, Adam comes to Exeter's Lemon Grove on April 9, Yeovil's Westlands on April 12 and makes a welcome return to Falmouth's Princess Pavilions on April 13. The theatrical and eccentric award-winning post-punk star – real name Stuart Goddard – rose to fame in the early 1980s, fronting Adam and the Ants, producing groundbreaking pop hits like Antmusic, Stand and Deliver and Prince Charming.
Dogged by mental health problems, there was a long hiatus in his performing schedule before he returned to touring in 2011 with renewed energy and charisma. After last year's release of his sixth solo studio album, Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying Gunner's Daughter, Adam will be championing plenty of exciting new material in addition to playing all his greatest hits.
Tickets to all shows are now on sale.
Gary is the champion in a tribute to Freddie's Queen
In 2000 Gary Mullen won the TV show Stars in Their Eyes with the largest number of votes in the show's history. The 864,838 votes he polled for his performance as Freddie Mercury was more than twice that of the runner-up. Two years later he started touring with his own band, The Works, performing Queen's greatest hits, and they have been thrilling audiences all over the world ever since.
And tomorrow night they are back for their annual visit to Plymouth Pavilions, performing One Night of Queen, a spectacular live concert, recreating the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of arguably the greatest rock band of all time. The two-hour show features all the Queen hits you could ever want to hear, including We Are The Champions, Radio GaGa, Killer Queen, The Show Must Go On, Don't Stop Me Now and the iconic Bohemian Rhapsody.
