Prince Charming Adam Ant is to play the Ironworks, Inverness, on May 22.

Adam Ant and The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse have added in the Highland venue to the current tour dates planned for May June and tickets will go on sale from the venue from 4pm today.

Performers include Georgina Baillie - subject of a controversial phonecall to her grandad, actor Andrew Sachs, during Russell Brand's Radio 2 show.

After a career including three number ones as frontman of Adam And The Ants between 1980 and 1983 among 10 top 10 hits, celebrity status in the UK and America and an acting career that continued on TV and the big screen until 2003, Adam disappeared from view for a number of years as he battled bipolar disorder.

In 2003, the successful Antbox was re-released due to popular demand, but presented in a different form and TV special The Madness of Prince Charming documenting Adam's career and his struggle with mental illness.

For the last year, Adam has been performing, writing a book and last month he appeared talking about his mental health issues in an interview with Radio 4's John Humphreys.

Last April, Adam announced he was working on new album Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner's Daughter - his sixth.

It is now due out next year on Adam's own record label Blueblack Hussar Records.

Tickets go on sale from the venue today from 4pm. Call 0871 789 4173 for more details.
