(LOS ANGELES) February 1, 2017 - Following the sudden death of his guitarist and musical director Tom Edwards, and with the encouragement of the late guitarist's family, pop icon Adam Ant will return to Philadelphia and New York City to play rescheduled shows at The Keswick Theatre (Philadelphia, February 21) and Webster Hall (New York City, February 22) and as part of the 35th anniversary tour to celebrate the reissue of his landmark "Kings of the Wild Frontier" album.
Adam and the band postponed the original dates to pay respects to their honored bandmate after his sudden passing the day before the first Philadelphia show that had been scheduled for January 26.
We are stronger together with our fans whose incredible love and support have been a great comfort to us, and Tom's family, during this devastating time. We especially want to thank our friends and fans in Philadelphia and New York City for their patience while we paid our respects. Now, we will honor him as he would have wanted it - through music.
All tickets for the original date will be honored. If you cannot attend the new performance refunds are available at point of purchase.
