Adam Ant falls off stage during London comeback gig

Posted on

New Romantic rocker Adam Ant, born Stuart Goddard, tumbled offstage today during a comeback concert at London’s Indig02, according to British news reports.

The piratey hitmaker behind ’80s smashes like “Stand and Deliver” and “Goody Two Shoes” brushed himself and returned to the show, though he did tell the audience that he had cut himself and broken a fingernail.

Ant most recently made the news in 2002, when he was arrested for throwing a car alternator through a pub window and intimidating the bar staff with an imitation gun, and he tangled with the law again in 2003 when he threatened to smash in a neighbor’s patio doors with a shovel and was later found laying nude in a cafe basement.
