Adam Ant is promising to play every song from his 1980 classic album Kings of the Wild Frontier live on stage and in sequence during a tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The '80s star is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the platinum album which included the single Antmusic which spent five weeks at number one in the Australian charts.

"I'm really looking forward to performing the Kings of the Wild Frontier album live and in sequence plus my other favourite songs from the repertoire, in Australia," Adam said.

The album was notable for its use of Central African drumming which created the Burundi Beat beat style which the popstar has brought to his live shows by incorporating two drummers into his band.

*Adam Ant tour dates:

October 9 - Powerstation, Auckland

October 10 - Opera House, Wellington

October 12 - Tivoli, Brisbane

October 13 - Enmore Theatre, Sydney

October 15 - Palais Theatre, Melbourne

October 16 - Metropolis, Fremantle
