Who Wants Free Tickets for Adam Ant at Grand Central Miami?

Before Marilyn Manson painted a stripe across his face, before Lady Gaga turned sonic sex into a catchy summer anthem, and before Johnny Depp donned a pirate hat, Adam Ant was Adam Ant.

Even today, this influential '80s mad man who once led Adam and the Ants continues to be a source of inspiration to some of the most dazzling performers in rock and pop.

But more so, the cheeky Englishman remains a force of his own. In fact, his colorfully naughty self is currently working through a nationwide tour, docking his daydreamy ways at Grand Central on Thursday, August 8.

Thirty years ago now, the swashbuckling new romantic stormed the hearts and minds of '80s New Wavers with pop-ready hits like "Goody Two Shoes," "Antmusic," and "Stand and Deliver."

But his wild look and unapologetic uniqueness made him legendary from the start.

"I took on a flamboyance or imagery that I thought was exciting as a reaction to what I thought punk had become, which was very gray, very political, very sorry for itself, and a bit listless," he said in February, speaking with Spin Magazine. "So when I came to America, with the importance of video, it was this marvelous opportunity for me to express my ideas visually. To me, it was like making another piece of the record. It was more work, but it was actually useful work."

During its five-year run, Adam and the Ants' label wouldn't allow the group to do much American touring. Still, the frontman's contagious musical style and fashion-forward image spawned lots of admiration in generations to come. Soon, Nine Inch Nails covered the band's "Physical," No Doubt recorded a version of "Stand and Deliver," even Katy Perry has gotten in on the fun.

And yet, no one can do Adam quite so well as the real thing.

I am here to "Stand and Deliver," in full "physical" form, the news that "Antmusic" isn't just for ant people. Now, I may not be a "Prince Charming" nor a "Goody Two Shoes," so even as the "Young Parisians" would do, I would gladly even "Strip" for those free tickets!!!!
