Great show,

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.

Great show, terrible sound,
Aug 21, 2013
reviewer: 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.

Horrid Sound; Good mix; Bad attitude?,
Aug 23, 2013
reviewer: 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.
