How do you describe a performer like Adam Ant, the singer who spent his formative years as a celebrity punk prince in Horatio Nelson’s best coat, war paints and leather? More than 30 years after he shook up radio and MTV with "Goody Two Shoes," "Stand and Deliver" and "Wonderful," first as the band Adam and the Ants and later as a solo act, Ant is back with a new album and concert tour. A new era and outlook on life requires a new persona. The album’s name hints: Adam Ant is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter. The naval rogue this time crosses paths with the gentleman highwayman, western-tuned guitar licks and his most revealing lyrics to date. Infallibly original, Ant again shows his best side. Prima Donna opens for Ant at the Cain’s Ballroom, 423 N. Main St., Tulsa. Show is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, and tickets are $25-$35. Get them at www.cainsballroom.com.
