FOR the first time, Adam Ant will perform his 1982 debut solo album, Friend Or Foe, in its entirety on an autumn tour that will visit York Barbican on November 14.

Featuring the chart-topping Goody Two Shoes, top ten title track Friend Or Foe and the underwhelming number 33 nosedive Desperate But Not Serious, the album peaked at number five en route to gold status in Britain and the United States. Adam Ant duly won the MTV Award for Sexiest Man Alive that year.
