Adam Ant brings the ‘Anthems’ tour, and a few surprises, too, to the Greek Theatre in L.A. – Orange County Register

For singer Adam Ant tour, the New Wave icon stumbled onto a theme almost by accident, after watching the reactions of fans at shows to some of the lesser-known but perhaps equally loved songs in his catalog.

“I’ve come from a different era of A sides and B sides,” he says by phone from London recently. “And I realized that there seems to be as much of a reaction to the B sides of the songs as the A sides when I played them live.

“I remember one night I was playing ‘Christian D’Or” – the B-side to the 1981 single “Prince Charming” – and the audience went mad,” says the 62-year-old born as Stuart Goddard. “So after that I thought it would be nice to do a combination, not just focusing on the singles, but the other side of the singles as well.”

Anthems – the Singles Tour comes to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, Sept. 30, and if it goes as like it did in the United Kingdom earlier this year it should be a dandy old time for all.
