Adam Ant at Seminole Coconut Creek Casino September 28

When British New Wave sensation Adam Ant last visited the States, Tupac and Biggie Smalls were still alive, and Bill Clinton was in his first term as president. A lot has changed since then. Ant, however, says his first American tour in nearly two decades is familiar territory. "It's starting where I left off, really," Ant recently said in an interview with ABC News. "I can't wait — it's great playing the U.S.A." MTV's Sexiest Man Alive circa 1982 is no stranger to touring. With his band, Adam and the Ants, and as a solo artist, he's racked up millions of miles on the odometer. But he admits that American trips are unlike the others. They're simply the best. "Until you've played the U.S.A., you haven't really done a proper rock 'n' roll tour," he told ABC. "It is the ultimate tour."
