Review: Adam Ant brings '80s energy to Hard Rock Live in Orlando
When Adam Ant comes to Florida, any '80s diehard worth his or her salt must take notice. Steve Spears did just that when Adam Ant announced a rare handful of dates last week, including one at the Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa and Hard Rock Live in Orlando. Steve checked out the Orlando show, and he writes:
I can't remember the last time I saw a musician hold court with such absolute authority. From slinking on stage, refusing to turn around for the first minute or two of Plastic Surgery to the final, sweaty encore of Physical, Adam held steady in a character that so many of us have come to love. There wasn't much in the way of stage banter -- just the occasional but genuine "thank you" -- but what he lacks in story-telling, Adam Ant makes up in swagger.
And if any of you guys were at Adam Ant's Hard Rock Cafe show in Tampa, how was it?
