    Ooh, such a gorgeous poster. I managed to wake myself up for the time the last concert was held, instead of when this one is actually scheduled for – could have slept a bit more, lol. Thanks for the thread Renata!

    eta: Does this make me Kris…?

  • cwm

    Woohoo I’m Adam!

  • cwm

    I see that mindchnger and Terra_Zephead are there at the show. I recognize those names. I think we have seen some really excellent photos taken by mindchnger at previous shows, haven’t we?

  • aislinn

    The names do seem familiar, cwm. I have a good feeling about the media we’ll see from this show.

  • cwm

    Some of the people who posted video last time are at tonight’s show as well (aquarius_y and gamlien). :-)

  • cher

    Surprised also to see mindchnger there as well, but extremely pleased.

    Crowd looks great. Though not sold out there must be a high percentage of seats sold. Thanks renata for the thread.

    Neither :) Comparing it´s ike I´m New York and São Paulo and Rio are Florida in terms of distance. But Fortaleza is the 4th largest city in Brazil, we´re pretty big. Almost 3 milion people live here. And we´re a beautiful city, by the beach!

  • adamized

    Dinner may be over before desert. Will stay a bit longer just in case. My vote is for TCB since he seems to be on fire tonight. His energy seems to be way up.

  • TLKC

    We have started a twitition to Sony Canada for a release of Fever here. He’s at least as big in Canada as in NZ. IIHY made the Top 10 on Billboard here and we want a new single. Montreal figures are proof of his appeal.

  • aislinn

    Great concert, and now I’m going to be late for work! LOL

  • spiffysmile

    TCB was wild!

  • adamized

    Loved desert! Need to get ready for work. Thanks everyone for the lovely morning. Really fun.

    Will have to have dinner tonight.

    Best new word of the day, from mindchanger:

    “Floorbert” Must be her term for “floormopping”

    Either way, can’t wait for the vids. She said she was up close.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t she banned from You Tube last year? Is she back now? Hope so, her vids were excellent as I recall.

    Ta Ta

  • mr

    Yay- so happy to hear he was on fire!! Can’t wait to see vids!

    About LP/Isaac- you all know I was bummed to have LP leave cause I think he’s he first class drummer- but I have to admit that Issac has nothing to be ashamed of either- he’s pretty awesome!

    So that’s good :-)

  • Planet Fierce

    Sounds like it was a good show, just getting on this morning, can’t wait for vids.

    Loved hearing about Montreal numbers skyrocketing like that. OMG….world domination is happening even faster than we thought, go BB!!!!!!!! Love for Adam is spreading faster than H1N1. Only difference is there is no cure for ADAM, YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

    Forgot to mention, about Isaac…he is freaking awesome. I LOVE LP, but it is amazing how every musician has their own musicality. They are playing the same instrument, right, but it all sounds so different to me. Isaac is really bringing a fierceness to the songs that I think really fits Adam’s style a little better and gives the songs (where appropriate) more of a rock edge, JMHO.

  • TXsunshine001

    I agree on Issac he really seems to be fitting in well. Can’t wait for the vides these Dinner times are killing me! I like to eat early.

  • luval

    am sneaking in some posts. Agree with everyone about Isaace! Love him. I never really noticed LP and his “sound” that much but I can really hear the difference with Isaac.

  • adamfanatic

    well i WAS at that Montreal show. and i can tell you something….as we were walking from the car to the stage, all you heard were people asking directions to the stage for the Adam show. they were just starting to get the balloons off the ground and no one seemed to care! hubby stayed to take pix and i told him to meet me around the stage i was going to get a spot. and i also want Fever as the next single here!! common canadians! lets make it happen…

    I cant believe it when someone up here said its illegal for homosexuality in the Phillipines? Is that really true? amazing if so.

    MaryT233, No, homosexuality is not illegal in the Philippines. Our family came to the US in 1984 when I was only 16 but when I was there, I’ve met a lot of gay people, some even dressed in women’s clothing as their everyday clothes. My mom’s (who’s 71 yrs old) best friend when she was a teenager and thru her 20s was a gay man. My parents get The Filipino Channel and there are a lot of gay celebrities. They even make movies about gay people, which show two men kissing. I guess everywhere you go, just like in the US, there are liberals and there are conservatives.

    Btw, a furry tail as a fashion accessory is the “it” thing here in Tokyo. Adam was working that shit last year tho :) #trendsetter

    That’s from mindchnger twitter.
    Does anybody know what is she referring to???
    Furry tail?

  • SunSister

    Sorry to be OT, but I haven’t received the password for the LA pre-sale yet this AM. Has anybody else? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? :smile:

  • koshka

    Does anybody know what is she referring to???
    Furry tail?

    Probably that furry thing that Adam hooks to a back pants loop or maybe out of his back pocket. It looks like a tail, sort of. Take a look at some of his pics. I think he hangs it off his right hip (?).

    ETA: I haven’t seen an email with the code either.

  • Oksana2000

    That a capella part of “Soaked” gets me every time..(sniff, sniff)

  • Oksana2000

    Where should we get code from? AO? I didn’t get anything either.
    ALF said that they do not cover this year tour,(means do not provide pre-sale codes)

  • Oksana2000

    koshka, Adam was wearing that as long ago as his AI performances. And most likely a long time before that.

  • SunSister

    If Alf isn’t doing it, then yeah, I think it will come from AO. I keep checking my email but I have to leave for work in a minute so I’ll be back later.

  • baebae

    Here goes the myth of politeness of japanese audience. I guess when it comes to Adam peeps are loosing it… hehe..

    Yesterday my radio station said that he DID have a make-up line coming out, along with a new clothes line. I think I will take Adam’s word over theirs any day. It did take them 3 months to start playing IIHY after all…lol

    The local radio this morning stated, after playing IIHY, that Adam has a boyfriend and that the boyfriend has been seen carrying Adam out of clubs after he’s drank too much. Hmmm.

    Adam doesn’t date guys big enough to carry him, lol.

    At least they are talking about him, but who knows where they get this stuff.

  • moonshadow

    They may have said “helping” him out, but I took the liberty of saying carry because, like luval, that is a sight I’d like to see.

    I laughed when I heard it because radio stations say a lot of things that aren’t exactly true. It could have been Neil helping him out for all the radio station knows.

    Anyway, it was on 93.3 in Dallas.

  • sr4mjc

    Could be Terrance, he goes out with Adam a lot.

    Sunsister, pre-sale passwords are emailed out to members of Adam Official on the morning of the presale. Adam’s new fanclub does not have presales for this tour, they only have the VIP m&g’s.

  • Oksana2000

    Sun Sister, I went to that site, but WHAT do I have to vote for? There seems to be many voting contest. (I feel dumb and dumber)

  • SunSister

    Summer, I usually get the AO passwords. I don’t know of anyone that got their’s yet today. Do you have it?

    Oksana – the middle of the page has an “article” that says something about “it’s that time again to vote….” check it out.

  • Oksana2000

    Summer, did you get anything from AdamOfficial? I didn’t. Sometimes they e-mail password too late. I don’t know what’s wrong with them.
    Or some people get it and some don’t.

  • kradamour

    was that a black bra thrown on stage for TCB? chuckle. Wonder if that was a Japanese fan or one of the itinerant US fans…?

  • Mieps

    luval, yes I have been to a few in the States. This one in Holland is perfect, since I haven’t been home in years, so it’s a real good incentive!

    I wonder how many tickets will show up on Stubhub in 30 seconds from the beginning of sale.
    Update: Tickets are on Stubhub already, and presale haven’t even started.

  • Planet Fierce

    Good luck gang!!!! Get close so you can get great pics and vids for those who can’t go…..we thank you in advance!!!

  • Oksana2000

    Tickets gone already????

    At 10:01 – No tickets available at any price – What the heck were they thinking?

  • Ashley

    Sorry guys :(

  • Oksana2000

    retjenny, but there are tickets already on Stubhub..

  • SunSister

    What a crock. Me my computer savy son and his friend who’s practically a professional at this stuff all struck out. SOL from the get go.

    Such a scam. The fan club better take care of this in the future.

    Did anyone try with Am Ex? Maybe they got the only seats.

  • SunSister

    Stub Hub already has tickets. GAG ME! They don’t even try to hide it. :sad:

  • riskylady

    I tried with Amex, no luck either.

  • Oksana2000

    If you can’t buy more than 4 tickets, how can you offer 14 tickets on Stubhub. Friggin thiefs.

  • Oksana2000

    Subhub was showing 51 tickets BEFORE sale even started. 2 minutes later there are 75 tickets for sale. The cheapest ticket is $162. Scam, scam, scam.

  • riskylady

    StubHub has 74 tickets on sale, one seller alone has 14! Someone needs to reply to Adam on twitter and mention venue too small! Anyone? If not, I will.

  • woozasam

    So no one here got ticket?

  • SunSister

    I paid reseller prices before, but I’m pretty pissed this time. Thought I’d at least get a corner seat, in the back, in the dark, down by the river. But NADA

    Should we lodge our complaints at ALF? AFL should know what bad PR this creates. I’m so bugged I almosted changed his name to FAL. :mrgreen:

  • Oksana2000

    riskylady, believe me or not, there are only 70 tickets on StubHub.Did somebody bought scalped ticked ALREADY???
    It’s crazy.

  • Oksana2000

    Hmm.. Let’s wait until Friday. I have strange feeling that another show will be added. Nokia, Warfield, Costa Mesa anyone??

  • k_in_cal

    I didn’t get tix either :( I was on right at 10 and tried everything. I even tried buying a single ticket (which almost always works) and nothing! Add me to the list of pissed off fans (not at Adam…at his mgmnt). I mean seriously…WTF….2300 seats for AFL!!

  • SunSister

    k in cal: IKR? :!:

  • woozasam

    Won’t they release more tix on Friday? I thought they only sold limited seats pre-sale, or is this wishful thinking?

  • riskylady

    I can’t believe he would be happy about this. But if we don’t let him know, how would he know?

  • SunSister

    I replied to his tweet that it was a crock and all the tickets went to re-sellers. He should know. Not his fault, but he should know. IMHO

    Now VIP tickets $572 a piece are showing up on StuHub.
    NO.WORDS.
    I checked Ebay. 10 tickets between $350 and $400. GA. I hope that scalpers will end up stuck with this tickets forever.

  • k_in_cal

    My favorite concert….Fantasy Springs! Why?? Because I could buy my tickets directly from the venue and there was no Ticketbastard involved!!

  • rainbowgal

    I just checked tickets on the rip off site. There are two entries for 20 tickets each! The total when I was on the site was 96 tickets available. How sad and frustrating!!!

  • woozasam

    Oksana2000:
    Yes, they will. Good luck on Friday.

    Thanks, but not too optimistic.

  • Oksana2000

    Does anyone know how many tickets are released for presale? It would be interesting to know what percentage of presale ends up on Scalpers sites.

  • TXsunshine001

    No luck here either. Guess I will try again on Friday or hope the prices on Stub go down-crazy.

  • aislinn

    I see people got stuck in the same rage situation that occurred for other events and Stub Hub. I think it’s the biggest scam going right now – legalized scalping that needs to be shut down. I’m so sorry that happened. It’s especially frustrating when there was a supposed pre-sale for fans. Hopefully pre-sales will be more meaningful when the fan club takes over handling it, but it would still be cost effective for the scalpers to pay for a fan membership to get access. Grrrrrr.

  • TXsunshine001

    On a positive note so sweet for Issac to come to the front of the stage on TCB to give out his sticks. He really is growing on me and he actually answered one of my tweets!

  • SunSister

    It’s a pretty gutsy thing to do and might limit the venues available, but from what I understand, tickets can be sold with names on them that require ID. It’ll never happen. Knowing this show would sell out like this, Adam may have received a very big payment to play at this venue. The venues benefit from the re-sellers. SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. I would like to think BB benfits a little. On the other hand, then even the artist would have no reason to change the system. :sad:

  • ms0712
  • Oksana2000

    There was big article some time ago (I don’t remember where, maybe Rollingstone , maybe HDD) how everybody is in the bed together regarding scalping of the tickets – venue, promoters, managment and god knows who else. If there is a chance that tickets will be hot, everybody wants a piece of the pie.Why sell ticket for 30 bucks if you can get $200 for it?

  • zzatrms

    StubScam has 77 tickets from 190 to 1199

  • k_in_cal

    If only there was a way to convince people to NOT buy tickets from those professional scalper sites then maybe this would stop happening. I realize that with this tour we are pretty much stuck between a rock and a hard place but I can only hope and pray that Adam demands changes to the ticket sale methodology for his next tour!

    I remember reading that article also. I think it mentioned Neil Diamond and the deal included the ticket broker, ticket master and the artist. If all the tickets didn’t sell by ticket broker then ticket master would list the again. And we have seen that. Ticket Master having more ticket closer to the concert.

    Anyway, the real deal is that is just weired to imagin what Adam’s people were thinking when they booked such a small place.

  • k_in_cal

  • Oksana2000

    retjenny, was is Rollingstone mag?
    There was something about Lady Gaga pricing her premium tickets so high that there was no margin for resellers. Good for her.
    I think that what Adam is charging is a very reasonable price, if not on the low side. In NYC stupid movie ticket costs over 10 bucks.

  • Oksana2000

    Anyway, the real deal is that is just weired to imagin what Adam’s people were thinking when they booked such a small place.

    Sorry to be cynical, but I think that this is their strategy to create high demand for the tickets. Weren’t we somewhat histerical?
    If they see that this concert will sell in 10 minutes on Friday then we will see something like “due to high demand managment decided to add second concert” ….
    It had happened before, right?

  • SunSister

    Oksana2000 – how can you even think that? :twisted:

    I’m sure management just forgot to check how well the other shows have sold. A mere oversight. :?

    Hmmmmm, does seem opportunistic, doesn’t it? She never even released the song, did she? And her label is Sony, too. Don’t really understand why they would do that, although I’m pretty sure the song is so attached to Adam it really can’t do him any harm.
    His version is still charting and getting lots of airplay.

  • Oksana2000

    riskylady, I guess “opportunistic” is the right word. After Adam made WWFM popular in Europe she started singing it during her concerts..So..she covered her own song. Funny, isn’t it?
    On the other hand Paul Anka (yes, I am that old) sang “My Way” and “She’s the lady” during his concerts. The first one was big Sinatra hit, the other one was Tom Jones’ hit. Both written by Paul Anka.

  • milwlovesadam

    Yes, and Neil Diamond sings “I’m a Believer.” He wrote it, Monkees made it a hit. I was a mere child at the time, yes, I was, but am still a fan of his.

    RE, the ticket scandal: The Milwaukee show completely sold out in pre-sale. The local brokers, StubHub and Ticket Liquidators all nabbed quite a few too. I think brokers can buy in blocks of 12 or even more tickets. They then list them in pairs or 4 tickets. Sometimes they re-release them to the box office if unsold 24 hours before the sale.

    I still think they will add shows in LA to meet the demand.

  • milwlovesadam

    One more thought, in an indirect way, this may actually be good news for Adam, the brokers are only going to nab tickets they think will be in high demand, and that they can actually make money on.

    They must think Adam will make them a lot of money.

    It’s twisted, and evil, and not morally correct, but, hey it’s free enterprise, it’s just business, and, in this tight economy people are selective about how they spend their money. If people want to see Adam, they know that may need to use a ticket broker. I have. What can I say? The only way to get a good seat is to pay the sharks. I’m just not going to sit in row Z. Not for Adam. So, I pay. And, obviously, I am not alone in this.

  • revcat

    Adam/Glam Nation added date(s) in Los Angeles? When? I was out of town without internet for 3 weeks, what’s the deal?

  • riskylady

    haha, well just goes to show ya….I never knew Paul Anka had anything at all to do with “My Way” or “She’s a Lady,” although I knew somebody else must have written them, but never imagined him. And I always associated Neil Diamond with “Im a Believer,” I guess because I was living outside the States during the time of the Monkees. So I think most people will always associate Adam with WWFM, even though it is pretty well known that Pink was a co-writer.

    I have just had a running email ‘conversation’ with StubHub about this, especially in regard to the fact that most of the tickets only list a row number and not seats (this obviously doesn’t apply to GA). If I’m going to pay the outrageous prices, I want to know exactly where my ticket is; in most venues the side aisle is nowhere as good as the centre. I have told them that they might sell more tickets if they listed seat numbers, but they don’t seem to care. (I would have bought)

  • milwlovesadam

    And, Adam Lambert covered Whole Lotta Love on American Idol. And on the AI tour, and on Glamnation. During this summer, I heard on the radio and saw an article on-line that Led Zeppelin has seen a huge surge in downloads of WLL. And that in turn has led to a huge increase in whole CD’s being purchased and downloaded. Just a coincidence? I don’t think so.

    Adam concert @ the Club Nokia on 12/16/10, venue size 2300, no presale available for any fans, all went to scalpers. Regular sale starting Friday 10 am, chances of getting tix – slim to none.
    That was it in a nutshell :)

  • milwlovesadam

    So I just peeked at 24/7. They have 3 pics of Adam and Kesha and a friend. Adam looks drunk, very drunk. If this was the night they kissed, I blame it on the hooch. Sometimes anything seems cute when you’re that wasted. My advice, “Adam, don’t get that drunk when skanks are near.”

  • eywflyer

    I tried for presale tickets and struck out today along with everyone else. Has anyone even HEARD of any fan out there getting an actual presale ticket from ticketmaster? I haven’t seen anyone from here, AO, ALF, or Twitter report success today. I know that presales are always limited quantity, but never before have seen it this bad.

  • hersheydog1

    Adam and Kesha seem to have some chemistry. Shit, she is such a skank.

    The skankiness could be just a persona. She is supposedly very intelligent (school honors etc.) and always speaks so highly of Adam – and he seems to count her as a true friend. Maybe she’s just very real as opposed to some of the phony friendliness he gets nowadays (ie. sucking up).

    ETA: I don’t like her as a performer and don’t think she has any talent.

    Anyway, seeing him looking at a woman like that is kinda a turn-on

  • milwlovesadam

    Hershey, you are so right. The only thing that keeps it so Adam to me is that he’s wearing false eyelashes! He may have kissed her, but, he’s still Adam!!

    Yes, the picture is actually quite hot. Gives me hope for love scenes in a movie…

    Let’s face it. Today was pre-sale for scalpers.

    RCA Ed:I’m as excited as you guys, so sit back and give us a few months to review the footage, obtain Adam and his team’s exacting approvals, and come up with a glamorous package befitting of the Glam Nation. Me and my colleagues have a lot of work ahead of us to make this a reality, so wish us luck, say your prayers for cooperative lawyers and publishers, and stay tuned for an online sample of what was captured in about 2-3 weeks time.

    Well, hmmm, it’s been a month since he said that. I wonder if we might be seeing that VEVO concert footage online before long. I also wonder when we’ll see that acoustic EP. Excited for both of them!

    Wasn’t the Ke$ha kiss after the Rock My Town concert? We all know he got pretty wasted that night… LOL

    I’m not crazy about Ke$ha, but she does have some catchy tunes. She and Adam are obviously friends, and I think he’s a pretty good judge of character (and she has said some very nice things about him), so I gonna cut her some slack. I think a lot of her skankiness is just a persona.

  • KOOL-AID

    I’m enjoying the concert videos by ‘hiadamm1′, appreciating the fact that this is a great privilege to experience the Int’l concerts because someone was kind enough to share.

    If ‘hiadamm1′ did not capture the show on video, I wonder if we would all be here not having anything to watch? Because it seems ‘hiadamm1′ is the only person that took videos of the JCB Hall Tokyo, Japan concert and made them available on YT.

    I hate, can´t stand Kesha… even more after this picture

    Easy: Just photoshop your own photo over Kesha’s.

    LMAO!

    Kesha had a perfect SAT score.
    She was an honors student in the International Baccalaureat program (I teach IB…it is a very rigorous program)
    Adam has said over and over that he is attracted to smart.
    And I can see that he would find her attractive in his view of the world. She, like him, chose not to go to college, and like him is close to her mother and family. I agree with those who say her skankiness is an act, and it is well done, and well compensated.

    Re seat selection not indicated on the scalper resale sites: I paid big $$ for a first row seat in Raleigh. It was on the side aisle, no way to know that, and my view was totally obliterated by the sound equipment on the side front of the stage. If there had not been an empty (WTF?) center front row seat next to cher I would have spent several hundred dollars for the privilege of looking at the amplifier. Oh, and BTW there was a pit section added of 5 rows of movable seats so that my first row seat was actually the 6th row, and no way to know that, nothing on any seating chart. But the charts all carefully state that they don’t mean squat, that the seating for any concert can vary.
    I have bought seats for Adam on the scalper sites, but I don’t see myself buying other tickets through that means. And for the record, I can afford the ridiculous prices, but choose not to, except for Adam, just as I boycott various other businesses for other reasons. Will a few people refusing to buy tickets make a difference? Probably not. But it’s a start, and every major social movement begins with a few individual steps.
    In terms of the rest of the ticket resale revolution: Adam fans just might be positioned to make a difference. We buy lots of tickets, we go to lots of concerts (think Grateful Dead LOL) and we communicate with each other to a significant extent, so we share information and have a fairly good image of the big picture. I hope that we stay on it. Reasonable regulation is long overdue.

    Kesha had a perfect SAT score.
    She was an honors student in the International Baccalaureat program (I teach IB…it is a very rigorous program)
    Adam has said over and over that he is attracted to smart.

    From Wikipedia
    “Kesha described herself in an interview as being “very studious” in high school; she would drive to Belmont University to listen in on Cold War history classes after school and achieved “near perfect” SAT scores. However, she dropped out at age seventeen and earned her GED afterward.”

    From ONTD – NBC Interviews Kesha
    “In the same breath where she says she loves to throw dance parties, Sebert admits she didn’t have a lot of friends in high school. She was a member of the International Baccalaureate program in high school and was on the fast track to go to Barnard College to study comparative religion and psychology. She claimed a love for community service and math.”

    It sounds like Adam & Kesha have things in common. Adam has stated on some of his interviews that if he was not a singer that he would go into psychology or social work. Although, according to his Dad, Adam is not good in Math.

  • weelassie

    can someone tell me when the next concert will start? pleeze!

  • turquoisewaters

    cwm, I think it was such a wise move of Adam to bring his dancer friends along on the tour. I remember in the beginning, there was a lot of criticism, and Adam had to defend the dancers. By now, most fans seem to have “adopted” them, and some (Terrence) have even developed their own little fan groups.
    Their friendship really shines through in their interactions. And somehow they manage to even make the audience feel – at least temporarily – welcome into their glamily and we can all join in the fun. That energy is a great part of the GN experience.

  • adamized

    Ok. Here is my 2cents re Kesha. I totally agree that the slutiness is a put on and that she probably is a quality person underneath. Adam adored her on first meeting and hasn’t seemed to change his opinion yet. I mentioned this “Paul the Intern” interview she did while in Canada and I think it gives us a hint as to her true nature.

    turquoisewaters– I totally agree. I love the energy that the dancers bring to the songs they’re in. And I love what they do for Adam’s energy too. I think Adam and the dancers really hit the sweet spot in perfecting their choreography, their look, and the way they come in and out of the spotlight.

  • Starry

    Just tuned in, worked all day, my two cents about Ke$ha – if Adam likes her, she must be interesting, smart and not really what she seems – also, even if its only a tipsy turnon – I think its good for Adam to have a little one on one Shakti with a woman – its a good balance once in awhile for him – so, maybe she is special in some way – also, in that interview on youtube – she really didn’t look skanky at all – I think she’s just smart enough for the “playing pop game” – I think they are both good psychologists! now, I have to watch and listen to Adam in Tokyo! yea!

  • eywflyer

    Ugh my best source for concert boxscores (idolstages.com) says they can no longer post them due to “some tours” (i.e. the ones with poor attendance) not wanting their data displayed. It’s now going to be much harder to get accurate numbers going forward. Data sometimes appears on the weekly idols in concert thread here on MJs, but it’s often pretty sparse, and for all I know some of that data may have come from Idol Stages too.

    OMG PollstarPro access costs $349 a year! I love my accurate spreadsheet but I don’t know if I love it quite that much!

    For last night’s Tokyo show I’m estimating 2500/3100 (80.7%) for now, based on a couple of crowd pics and a few tweets. If anyone knows of more reliable numbers for that show please let me know.

    I paid a mint for my ‘On The Waterfront, Rockford, IL’ ticket, but that included me having to pay for the gas and time of a friend who got the ticket for me, on top of the scalper rate. She lives in Rockford, IL and I am in Wadsworth,IL – I wanted to ensure that I got a ticket and asked for the favor. I wrote about my not making it to the show a few threads ago (RL crap), but that’s another story… :(

    I’m over it now, have my ticket in a frame and have moved on, and am happy … :)

  • milwlovesadam

    There was a ticket on Stubhub for Hawaii, front center, AA, for 1,000. It sold a couple of days ago. That was Hawaii. Not LA. Don’t forget, there will probably be celebs coming to see Adam. That makes it more of a show. And family. And Zodiac folks. And old friends. Many fans would pay extra just to see all of these people in the audience. The final show may even be taped, who knows?

    About Kesha. Maybe her public persona is more skanky than her real persona. I stand corrected. She does interview well. She is educated and smart and successful. Her songs do stick in my head. Take it Off especially. And, Adam does have good taste in friends.

    Either way, that picture is hot.

  • Oksana2000

    milw, that ticket on SH for 2220.00 was clearly a typo error. It was GA , not reserved sitting first row center.

  • Oksana2000

    There is something that bothers me …I swear that I’ve heard part of that song many, many years ago. I’m trying to recall where and when, most likely in my old country…

  • milwlovesadam

    Oksana, I get it. But, still $1,000 bucks is an incredible amount of money to pay. And, that person may be traveling to see him to boot.

    It’s this type of sale that keeps brokers rich, and only rich fans up front.

    I was reading the Hawaii comments on ALFC and they were talking about how U2 and Bono worked out a VIP system to give everybody a fair shot at both meeting him and getting the best seats. Right now, if you get a VIP, the only way you can sometimes also get a good “seat” is if it is GA. They are trying to get the VIP’s up front. But, let’s say you have a ticket for a show that is back of the balcony, and then you are able to get a VIP to meet Adam, that’s great you meet him, and then go to your back of the balcony seat to see the show. Somehow, for the next tour, great seats should come with VIP’s. For the right price, not a scalper’s price.

    Good night. Hope everyone enjoys their breakfast tomorrow morning. I’ll have mine when I get home from work tomorrow. Renata thanks for everything. And MJ too.

    Re Pink, her inclusion of WWFM on her Greatest Hits album is being widely reported, and I have been reading all the comments. I would say 95% are negative, ranging from “she didn’t make it a hit, Adam did” to “she doesn’t sing it well, Adam does” to “lack of class, she shouldn’t piggyback on his hit.” I was really surprised, as most of the commenters also say they are Pink fans.

    Along those lines, why shouldn’t she include it? She wrote it. She gave it to Adam. It’s a hit – why shouldn’t she be able to count it as a hit? I remember thinking the very first time I heard WWFM on the album ‘I could totally hear this as a Pink song’ and lo and behold looking at the credits…there she is. It all made sense.

    When she’s sung it live in Europe she puts a direct shout-out to Adam. “So I wrote this really silly song and then I found a guy who could sing it way better than me. So it became his.” I’m sure she’s not the only artist out there to do the same thing.

  • riskylady

    arrrvee, I don’t disagree. I’m just surprised at the reactions, I thought there would be less criticism. I like her, but don’t particularly like her version of WWFM. Love most of her other music, though, and really like her voice.

    Has Byron Cooke been mentioned in this thread? He’s a journalist and is looking into this whole ticket debacle. He seems very determined. Some people of this site have informed him as well. Check his twitter feed @Byroncooke to see what he’s up to.

  • sparkle

    riskylady – I think the reason you don’t particularly like Pink’s version is because, like me, you are used to hearing Adam’s version and prefer it. You have to give credit to Pink for saying that Adam sings it way better!

  • arrrvee

    I was just putting my two cents in…not trying to disagree with you. Sorry if it came across that way.

    It surprises me as well that her fans wouldn’t approve of her including the song. It seems like they would want to support her career whether she’s doing the original recording of the song or providing her songs to other artists that she thinks are worthy of putting their voice to her words.

    Good thing that Pink doesn’t ask for or feel she needs approval from anyone. I think that’s why I like her so much. :)

    ETA: Now if she released it as a single, then that might be a different story. That might warrant the ‘piggybacking’ comments. As it is, it sounds like it’s only on the international release of a greatest hits album. I’d actually like to hear a studio version of the song rather than the live European shows on YT.

  • riskylady

    True, sparkle, she deserves credit for that. But after reading the (surprising) reactions, I think it wasn’t such a good idea politically to put the song on the CD. Several of her fans said they had less respect for her. (Not me, but the commenters.)

    @byroncooke is pretty amazing for taking on the scalpers. I don’t really know how to tweet but I tried. Until the celebs band together to address the scalping issue, it will continue. What I truly hate is that the scalpers are parasites making money off the celebs backs, and the celebs don’t get a cent of it! Worse, their fans are angry and in many cases unable to afford the scalped tix…but the scalpers make sure that only scalped tix are available.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if an Adam concert finally brought this to a head? Somehow that seems totally possible to me. :)

  • KOOL-AID

    My two cents… Pink like so many other artist do sing other artists music, e.g., Jennifer Hudson singing Whitney Huston’s ‘I Will Always Love You'(which she did not do so well…I didn’t like it) BUT, Pink singing WWFM just because she wrote it, chopped it up so horribly in that video, I think she should have calmed down to sing it slowly the way Adam does. She sung it without any emotion…

    On one hand that’s a good thing, it helps to appreciate Adam all that much more. I have always associated WWFM with Adam’s journey after the AMA and beyond – “It’s me, I’m a freak, but thanks for lovin’ me cause you’re doing it perfectly” – (Pink doesn’t need that and shouldn’t take it away from Adam)

    It definitely sounds like a Pink song and if she chooses to sing it, I wish she would do with more emotion, because she wrote those words from somewhere in her heart and soul before Adam came alone.
    She needs to own it like Adam does, because music is to be shared…

    So many times people relate to a song because it speaks to them, talks of their story.

    Personally, I haven’t gotten past Adam’s voice and face and body, I have no idea what he is singing about :)

  • sparkle

    I think it is fine that Pink sings the song – agree with Kool-Aid about singing it with emotion. But why would you put it on a greatest hits album when all the other songs are her songs that she didn’t give away and had hits with over the years? It just doesn’t make sense. If all the songs were songs she gave to other artists, that would make sense as well. But just one song, which she hasn’t even sung very much, on an album with her greatest hits strikes me as odd.

  • KOOL-AID

    For Pink to even want to put WWFM on her greatest hits album is pathetic, within itself. She has been singing WWFM a lot, is one thing, – but, claiming it now and calling it a silly little song, I don’t get it. :shock:

    What will Adam use on his greatest hits album when the time comes if Pink use his song? Will he be able to use it, as well?

  • KOOL-AID

    If Pink can get away with that, then there’s no stopping this up and coming new artist, he’s going to be able to claim IIHY on his greatest hits at the rate he’s going… ROFLMAO :lol:

    Had to say that several of our MJs peeps, other Adam fan friends and myself were highly ticked off (to put it mildly) that no one we are aware of were able to get even 1 ticket to Adam’s LA concert. There were several scalpers’ sites showing overpriced tickets one day before our supposed fan club presale. Mr. Byron Cooke, a journalist contacted by LA fans upset by today’s non-sale, is admired for trying to publicize the utter greed and corruption involved in ticket sales. He can’t make a difference by himself, but en masse we might be able to do it. We’ve put up with this price gouging the whole tour and it’s happening internationally as well for sure in Amsterdam and the UK. All of us that were forced to pay obscene prices for Adam concerts and other events should tweet @Byroncooke and voice your displeasure. He’s making podcasts and inviting all disgruntled folks to make comments about this horrible scam. :(
    BTW, there’s yet another presale later today 10amPST again for GV/AEG Live before open sale on Friday. So even less for open sale.
