A couple of TUTS are going to Nottingham to see "Dirk". But can they take the encores?

I went to two of the Dirk shows at Islington in November and the encores consisted of pre Dirk era songs (B Side Baby, Bathroom Function, Whip In My Valise, Zerox, Physical). There were only a handful of post-Dirk songs - no Antmusic, Stand And Deliver, Prince Charming, Goody Two Shoes etc.

It was very much not a warpaint/dandy highwayman/Prince Charming show.

It was so good that I'm going to the Brighton and Warwick shows on this tour!

Not a surprise as it's only a small venue - I wouldn't be surprised if it was moved to Rock City as the same company own both venues.

Adam was in excellent form last night at Brighton...the whole of Dirk plus a batch of pre-Dirk songs (Plastic Surgery, Beat My Guest, Christian Dior, Bathroom Function, Zerox, Lady, Fall In, Fat Fun and a few others). The only post-Dirk song played was Kings of the Wild Frontier. Easily the best of the Dirk shows that I've been to and hoping that the Warwick one later in the month is as good...

Just back from seeing Adam Ant performing “Dirk Wears White Sox” – and it was stunning!

His young band (two guitars, bass and two drummers) provided great backing as they stormed through all of the album and Plastic Surgery before even saying “Good Evening”.

After that we got a few stories and great early songs including Beat My Guest, Christian Dior, Bathroom Function, Xerox, Physical, Red Scab, Greta X and even Pipeline (with Adam on lead) dating back to his Bazooka Joe days. Lots of punks there – but clearly lots of fans of his pop stuff too. When he said that he’d be touring “Kings of the Wild Frontier” next and then played that song, it got the biggest cheer of the night by far.

It was SO GOOD that I might even be tempted to see the next tour, but I’d have to draw the line in the sand at the new romantic phase!
