Adam Ant to play two New York concerts to promote new album

NEW YORK, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Adam Ant is to perform two concerts at New York's Irving Plaza in support of his new album "Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hassar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter."

The New York Post said the 58-year-old British rocker is booked to sing at the club Friday and Saturday.

Known for his hits "Strip," "Stand and Deliver," "Goody Two Shoes," "Prince Charming" and "Antmusic," Ant's last album was released in 1995.

His career was sidelined for years by a string of arrests and hospitalizations for bizarre and dangerous behavior related to his diagnosis of bi-polar disorder and his struggle to treat it.

"I've given the fans one track for every year I've been away, which seems reasonable," the musician told the Post of the 17-song CD, which he recorded between 2010 and 2012.
