Horrid Sound; Good mix; Bad attitude?, Aug 23, 2013
reviewer: Matt from Toronto, Ontario
It was great to see the man up after being knocked
down so many times. I'd seen him a couple years ago
at old Massey Hall, and he still puts on a pretty
good concert for the physical limitations of the
stage. The sound mix was incredibly WAY TOO BASS
heavy; the guitars and vocals were muddied to the
point of not being distinguishable. After "You're
So Physical", it appeared as though the band walked
off stage angry; not sure what was up with that.

Great show, Aug 21, 2013
reviewer: Dana from Toronto, Ontario
Admitedly, I was hesitant to attend the show because I'd been a huge Ants fan and didn't want to be disappointed seeing him this late in life, the way I did after seeing Devo. But Ant did not disappoint and put on an energetic, 2-hour show. I liked the two drummers, although they largely played the same beats, unlike the original Ants. Regardless, it was a terrific show and he played a wide variety of the old material, even some 7" B-sides, which I really appreciated. The crowd was 3/4 women, which I thought was hilarious. I guess the man's still got it! My only criticism was the sound at the Phoenix, which sucked. The sound person should be fired. For the first half of the show, you could barely hear the vocals over the drums. For the entire the show, you had to wait a few bars before you could figure out what song they were playing because the guitars were pretty much non-existent in the mix. Despite this, the band put on a very worthwhile show. Glad I went.

ANT KING HAS GOT IT, Jan 25, 2017
reviewer: Watch where you park from Boston, Massachusetts
ADAM was great and he's 67 - Rock on! the band is better than the one from a couple of years ago! I love that album I burned through it when I was 18. I was near the top of the building and the sound was fine so I wonder about the Wilbur's shape has sometime to with the bad mix.

I got a parking ticket so out the additional 40 bucks, some strange meter thing that changes to residential after 6pm - my bag but my car was the only one on the street when I came back so I think it's a cash grab

Great show, terrible sound, Aug 21, 2013
reviewer: Angela from Toronto, Ontario
The show was pretty much what I could hope for in for someone that I saw 30 years ago. He played with energy for about 2 hours. He did a good job of mixing up his music but I was glad to hear many of the old Adam and the Ants tracks. That being said, it was the worst sounding concert I have ever attended. I could not make out most of the words that were being sung.

Ant music Forever, great show, Sep 18, 2017
reviewer: Richard from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The show was "wonderful" even though he didn't play wonderful. Loved that he played
songs you haven't heard in years. A true performer, he is ageless with pure energy. the
band rocked the house with 2 hours of non-stop ant music. The opening band glam
skanks were awesome, would love to see them again in the future. Would highly
recommend this show to anyone. ant music forever.
