Adam Ant has postponed two shows after Tom Edwards, his guitarist and music director, died.
Edwards, 41, was found unresponsive and was taken to Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill, NJ where he was treated but died late Wednesday afternoon.
Adam has, so far, postponed their Thursday night show at the Keswick Theatre in Philadelphia and Friday’s appearance at Webster Hall in New York. His next show is Sunday at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto. The current North American tour is scheduled through mid-February.
A spokesperson said, “On behalf of Adam and his band, we thank all of you for your best wishes and support during this most difficult time, Tom shared his musical gifts with the world and his spirit will live on forever.”
Edwards had previously played with artists such as Edwyn Collins, Andrea Corrs and Spiderbites.
