    Oh I love it so much:)

  • loveroftalent

    Loved it….Adam looked and sounded amazing….He keeps gets better looking everyday…How does he do it….Please share your secret Adam….

  • loveroftalent

    I wonder if Adam is noticing….That when he wails and rocks out, the audience responds even more…..not that they don’t always respond, but I just notice they do a bit more…I know he does not want to be boxed into one kind of music, but I really think he mxes it up well…Like I said in another post….He is so versatile of a performer…He amazes me everytime….

  • seashellz51

    Love this! He never disappoints. The man can sing anything. I love the arm fringies too… :)  Keep rockin’ Adam! Next stop… Johannesburg!

  • asifclueless

    So good to hear these three songs again. It’s been a while.

    Fame, Strut and Fever

  • seashellz51

     So good to hear those 3 songs again! Love Fame & Fever. Strut isnt my fave song off of FYE but Adam sings the snot out of it.

  • YankeeFan08

    Love the cover! He can sing anything.  And Fever and Strut … aahhh memories of GNT.  He has so much fun performing these songs.

  • cwm

    Awesome performance! What an amazing show that was. Looks suspiciously like a “tour show” to me! ;-)

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Better Audio for Undrneath and Broken English:

    Did I already mentioned I’m in love with Broken English? That became my fave from the album.

  • Enough already!

    They love Adam in SA.   and what’s not to love, the guys a natural entertainer and can sing anything.   They knew the words to all his songs.   Bring it on Adam, we are waiting for this awesome tour!

  • marie

    Wow, he really is a showman. Lucky SA fans.

  • sagi

    That was GREAT! Every time I see a video of Adam in concert, I wish I could have been there. No matter how great he is on video, there is no comparing the energy LIVE! And LOVE the outfit he is wearing! I saw a mention on twitter calling his sleeves “butt-less arm chaps” and I am still cracking up over that! :D :D

  • lovetheusa1776

    Incredible live performer – and one of the most beautiful.

  • HKfan

    aww, love me a bit of Rock Adam, awesome as usual. He really is the best live performer. I’ve been lucky enough to see him 3 times live, videos do not do justice to the physical presence he has on the stage, he has such an aura about him.
    Don’t know this song, or Lenny Kravitz, but it sounded great.

  • milwlovesadam

    Love. It. Love when Adam rawks out. Haven’t heard this Adam since Glamnation and Twentieth Century Boy and Whole Lotta Love and Purple Haze.  Love it!!!

    Now, if only he would lose the vest. Fringes and laces. Fringes and laces.
    O. M. G.

    That Glory Note at the end. I mean he’s Adam F. Lambert, but geebus!!

  • mickivick

    Another good video of Underneath & Broken English from Cape Town – Lots of close-ups!

  • loveroftalent

    I have a question…Is American Idol aired in South Africa and has other idols toured there…Just wondering….

  • loveroftalent

    In total agreement agreement with your comment….He really is incredible and so beautiful….and getting more beautiful the older he gets….

  • Incipit

    Is American Idol aired in South Africa and has other idols toured there…

    loveroftalent, according to WIKI’s comprehensive list, SA is one of the over 100 countries that broadcast American Idol. “In most nations these are not live broadcasts and may be tape delayed by several days or weeks.”

    They also have their own SA Idol show.

    Carrie Underwood was there in ’07 for IGB, not a tour. Kelly Clarkson played shows there in 2010, Chris Daughtry also toured there two years ago…I didn’t see anything for Elliot, who tours internationally; you could check by artist. 

    But the short answers are Yes, and Yes.

  • loveroftalent

    Thanks for the reply!!!I knew someone here at MJs would know the answer…

    Shady is one of my favs. This video’s audio is from a mobile … not quite good.
    But why not while we’re waiting for the HQ one.

    Shady, Cape Town

  • Jaejae1

    Adam cracks me up. I know he is gay but he was really gaying it up in those performances. Lol, I still prefer his shows without dancers. :)

  • iluvai

    The video has vanished. :(

  • iluvai

    Wut???  Adam is just performing like he always does. He was tame here, lol…

  • Ronnie D

    I find it funny how most of Adams album is pop/dance, yet his covers in concert are rock. lol. I still wish he would put out a rock album. :)

  • Axxxel

    Me too, but the young audience is not really into rock anymore.

  • asifclueless

    The good quality Full Shady and Jazzy Band Intro, Cape Town

    Trespassing (by the same videographer, madeliefies)

  • loveroftalent

    I think Adam know that some of his fans like pop, some dance and some rock, so he covers all the different types of music in his concerts….I prefer rock adam, because he can rock out like it’s nobody’s business. 

    Will admit though that I love every side of Adam.  Just keep making music Adam, and I will be a happy fan forever….

  • Chicagolaw

    Just catching up—I love this!

    He can sing just about anything, but he really does have a great rock voice.

    Adam and the crew are in J-burg … gorgeous views from their hotel and at the airport with fans of all ages.

  • irockhard

    Yes it does air in SA, on the subscription channel M-Net and we’re only a few days behind when it airs (it airs on the weekend).

    Kelly and Daughtry have also performed in SA.

  • loveroftalent

    I love it too…SOOOO much!!!

  • Taylor

    Not this era. Adam has done covers from Donna Summers, Bob Marley and a section of a Michael Jackson song. At the last concert he did part of David Bowie’s Fame to start out his mini set of glam rock/pop songs from FYE. This is the first rock song he has covered this era.

     Adam Lambert Covers Lenny Kravitz’s  ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ and It’s Awesome

    Adam Lambert:  Lenny Kravitz ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ Cover Rocks Cape Town (VIDEO)

  • Axxxel

    Maybe Adam “rocks” more on stage because it will sound better than just “pop”… I think it takes a village and a studio to create the pop sound… compared to the live “rock” sound…but I am not complaining…

  • Axxxel

    Adam singing ballads, rock music, “gayish”  music, reaggae, pop music and jazz all in one concert in South Africa… Such a treat… He can do it all…  well except for country music or alternative music….  Still one day I might see him pairing up with some rapper… doing the singing parts… but my favorite wish is to have him paired up with Pink or Christina (the voice)  in some tragic love song some day.

  • pirouette13

    So wonderful, the music we have gotten out of this concert.

  • Ronnie D

    When Adam does his songs live they seem take on a rock edge. At least to my ears. I like whatever he does, but he brings in the rock overtones when he performs these songs live.

  • lovetheusa1776

    So many types of rock – are you referring to glam rock (e.g., Bowie/Queen) or something more than that?

    Loved the Kravitz cover.

  • Loretta

    Adam is truly an incredible performer and his voice is unmatched by any other singer today IMO.  His control and range is mind boggling.

     Underneath moves me to tears.  Pop that Lock, such fun.

    I also love Rock Adam best!  His performing with Queen blew my mind.  No one can fill Freddie’s shoes but Adam came close. 


  • Sharon S.

    Edited version (VERY edited version) of the press conference Adam did in Johannesburg:

    And for those who enjoy this sort of thing, here is a list of tweets from participants in the press conference.  Lots of Adam’s usual charmicide!

  • Ronnie D

    I’m referring to the guitars. If you don’t know what a rock sound is I can’t really explain it lol

  • loveroftalent

    Just read a tweet that his show for today is sold out…I believe it holds 16,000.  This is so amazing…They have really been loving Adam….

  • loveroftalent

    Yes I agree with you that there is always a rock edge when he is performing…

  • loveroftalent

    Thanks for the video of the press conference and the tweets….

  • lovetheusa1776

     Was not asking you to do so.
