Adam Ant: Seawick Park, Clacton-on-Sea

John Robb, Rock's Backpages, 9 October 2011

THERE HAVE BEEN a lot of comebacks recently, some great, some not so. They've ranged from the "oh not them again" to the more exciting and following on from a series of smaller gigs from Adam I have to admit that it was with a certain amount or trepidation that I approached this show. When the tour was announced and I found that the nearest show was only a few miles away from where I live in North Essex, and in a caravan park entertainment complex of all things, it seemed that he had gone down the "eighties legend" route and I very nearly passed by on the chance to see him. It was the review from a friend that had seen him play a show earlier in the year that convinced me, his enthusiasm rubbing off I guess.
