This sweet t-shirt celebrates the English new wave singer, Adam Ant, and it commemorates a 1983 US promotional tour for his debut solo album, Friend or Foe. Adam Ant originally gained attention as the lead singer of his band Adam and the Ants. The group released a number one album in the UK, before they recruited former Sex Pistols manager, Malcolm McLaren to help produce their second album. McLaren actually wound up sweeping in and taking the Ants to form a new group, Bow Wow Wow, which was fronted by Annabella Lwin. Adam Ant subsequently formed a new iteration of the Ants and released two more albums before pursuing a solo career.

Ant's solo debut was a commercial success, and Friend or Foe peaked at the No. 5 spot on the UK charts. The album included the singer's most famous hit single, "Goody Two Shoes", and it also helped to introduce Adam Ant to the American market. While Ant was touring the US, the singer sustained a knee injury during a show in Cleveland, Ohio. Several of the tour dates had to be canceled or postponed while he recovered, and during this break Ant began working on his next solo album Strip.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is a repair on the back and bleach spots along the bottom, see pics.
