'Adam Ant Live At The Bloosmbury' released for fans exclusively via

Adam Ant

In September 2007, Adam Ant gave his first public performance in 12 years at London's Bloomsbury Theatre. The gig was intended as a 'thank you' to the members of his official website forum ( for their continued support and to publicise the publication in paperback of his best-selling autobiography Stand & Deliver (Macmillan).

The Bloomsbury Theatre was sold out within two days of the tickets going on sale, advertised only on

The fans lucky enough to be at the gig witnessed a unique performance from Adam, which mixed reading from his autobiography with ad-libs and songs from the early days of his career.

For that one night only, Adam sang with the backing of an amplified acoustic guitar, played by his childhood friend, Dave Pash and with no other backing instruments or performers. The audience were spellbound and reacted with incredible applause to each number as it finished. It was a truly memorable evening for all present.

A recording of that gig, complete with readings from the book, ad-libs and eight songs is now released in a limited edition CD album only available online via

Adam co-produced the album with Boz Boorer in late September 2008.

The CD comes packed in 3-panel fold-out digipack with an 8-page booklet written by Adam and includes unseen photographs and images from Adam's collection.
