Adam Ant – Pyramids Centre Portsmouth 2011

Last night I travelled with a friend to Portsmouth to watch Adam Ant perform live at the Pyramids Centre. The gig was packed out and the atmosphere was fun once everyone had got in the venue from queuing in the cold.

The support for this gig had been mixed up slightly with Twinkle Twinkle opening and Georgie Girl and her Poussez Posse replacing Dressing for Pleasure. Both bands got the crowd warmed up sufficiently enough for Adam who was up next with his band The Good The Mad And The Lovely Posse.

I have seen Adam Ant live four times in the last two years and I can honestly say that his performance is getting better and better as the tour goes on. I will be at the Guildford gig on the 6th December so you can expect more photos and footage to come from that.

You can view all the photos I took at this gig in my flickr set and below is some footage I took from the Portsmouth gig including a video of Adams new song Vince Taylor. I created a YouTube playlist with footage that me and my friend SolusShadow took at this and the other gigs we have been to Adam Ant Playlist 2011. Enjoy 🙂

    thanks for posting these videos. gee whiz, I am living on the WRONG continent. I have been a fan of Adam Ant since 1977 but never had the chance to see him perform live in concert since I live in California. Am envious of Antpeople in the UK who get to see him easily all the time now that he’s been back in action with the resurrection of his career since 2010. When is his much promised new album going to be RELEASED? I saw a one year old interview with Adam Ant on You Tube yesterday – he said “my album was finished 6 months ago and I’d release it except for some final touches I need to complete before it goes out since it has been 15 years since my last record release and I need to tour to remind people who Adam Ant is” I’d love to buy a copy of “Blueblack Hussar Marries the Gunnar’s Daughter”. He is AMAZING – he looks like a kid still handsome even though he’s 57 – he’s in fine form and his new band is great – especially since he got rid of that just plain awful Twinkle Twinkle back up singer! The drummer Hayley Legg and guitarist Tom are very good.
