What to do in Oklahoma on July 30, 2013: Hear Adam Ant at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa (with video)

Today’s featured event:

TULSA – As part of his comeback, pop icon Adam Ant is bringing his U.S. tour to Cain’s Ballroom, 423 N Main, at 8 tonight. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The English musician will play the historic venue tonight with the latest incarnation of his band, The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse.

Adam Ant, who rose to fame as lead singer of post-punk group Adam and the Ants in the early ’80s, before embarking on a hit solo career, earned 10 U.K. top 10 hits – including three No. 1s  – and became a figurehead for the New Romantic movement in the UK.

After overcoming a well-documented battle with depression and bipolar disorder, the London legend released in January his first album in 17 years, “Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter.” Among the album’s 17 tracks is the cool swampy-bluesy single “Cool Zombie.”

Following successful touring last year in Britain, America and Australia, the musician launched his biggest U.S. tour in nearly two decades in mid-July. He is taking in 22 states as well as Canada before finishing towards the end of September.

Adam has created so many great songs in the course of his long career, including one of my favorite songs of all the ’80s, “Goody Two Shoes.” When I was a kid, I probably watched the music video at least 100 times – on VHS taped off late-night pre-cable television no less!

As previously reported, Adam played earlier this month on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and you can view the performance by clicking here.
