EIGHTIES pop sensation Adam Ant brings his latest solo tour to Southampton next week following his sell-out world tour.

The former Adam and The Ants star is expected to play his landmark Friend or Foe album in its entirety as well as chart-topping hits and personal favourites.

Friend or Foe was the 65-year-old singer/songwriter's first release as a solo artist and included three hit singles. Goody Two Shoes reached number one in the UK. Friend or Foe and Desperate But Not Serious also proved popular.

Friend or Foe is his most successful solo album to date, reaching certified gold album status on both sides of the Atlantic after selling more than 100,000 copies.

The dandy highwayman has been touring again for around five years after a long break from performing.

His fans from the era when he was arguably the biggest pop star in the country still seem keen for their fix of Ant music. His last two tours have seen him do a greatest hits set, as well as celebrate anniversaries of the first two Adam & The Ants albums Dirk Wears White Sox and the classic Kings Of The Wild Frontier.

This time he is touring to celebrating his first album minus the Ants, released back in 1982.

He is joined by a fantastic five-piece band, with two guitarists, a bass player and, of course, two drummers - the Adam & The Ants' calling card.

Expect all the big hits including the likes of Antmusic, Prince Charming, Kings Of The Wild Frontier and Puss 'n' Boots as well as, of course, Stand and Deliver.

Adam Ant will appear at 02 Guildhall Southampton on Thursday.
