Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation tour rolls into the The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre tonight for the very first concert of his North American tour.

Allison Iraheta and Orianthi are tonight’s openers.

Before you settle in for the concert, say hello to Adamland

She’ll be helping to maintain the Adam tour threads as his tour makes its way across America and beyond in the coming months.

Adamland will be posting photos, videos, links to twitter feeds and live streams–all that fun stuff.  A big thank-you to her for volunteering!

See you later!

    Wanted to be one of the first to say thank you to Adamland for maintaining the tour thread through the coming months. This is going to be a big adventure following Adam’s exploits from city to city.

  • Judee

    thx Adamland for helping out!

  • Judee

    Now i want a detail of the Green merch T-shirt with Adumb’s face from the album cover. it looks cool.

  • MRM

    So, this kicks off at 7:30 right, and first up is allison for 20 min then Orianthi for 40 min and then at 8:30 comes Adam. Do I have this correct?

  • MRM

    There’s a live stream? OMG

  • Ceddies

    Hi adamland, I trust you enjoyed the game this afternoon. Hope it went your way.

    So, so good to know you’re helping MJ out with Adam’s tour. You’re a good one for this job. Let’s party!!!!

  • Falfor

    Is there a live stream and where? Sort of new to this, lurked for awhile, so give detailed details please. Would love to watch.

  • marmom07

    Hi everyone!! Thanks MJ and Adamland for hosting the party!!!

    I hope the livestream sounds good. Hard to know how much time they need between sets. I thought I saw that Orianthi was on for 30 min??? I do remember 20 for Allison. I hope we get vid of alli she just kills it live.

  • weareallinnocent

    Thanks for the thread and stuff! Thanks adamland!!

    I’m not one for streams of concerts, they nearly always suck. This concert is so conceptual that I’m thinking I should skip any streaming. That’s what I’m saying now, of course… ;-)

  • LeHommeAdam

    Thanks adamland!:) livestream link anyone?

  • MRM

    There is a link to the live stream above in the headline description – it appears it will just be Adam’s set. Personally I won’t watch the whole thing, but I really really want to see him take the stage for the first time headlining his Glam Nation Tour – What a moment!

    t shirts $35-$50

    WTF? is anybody buying this? ugh.

  • Miss Chaos

    Gotta pay for the expenses and busses lol

  • HermeticallySealed

    35-50 is actually fairly reasonable considering that licensed band shirts go for about 20 or more at retail stores here in town. At any rate, any merchandise at special events are going to be marked up. Ever been to a fair?

  • woozasam

    Thanks Adamland and MJ.

  • Studio57

    there’s a blue shirt with a disco ball that says “Don’t Trip Off The Glitz” for sale, according to the live twitter feed.

  • fisch

    Dang, this blog is really turning into and Adam blog. Has anyone else got this kind of treatment here before?

  • MRM

    I am guessing it starts at 8:30? I really wish I knew, now we have company coming over and I am probably going to miss it…..

  • Judee

    Ever been to a fair?

    Never ;). I just buy booze at concerts. Never really thought about buying a T-shirt before. I’d like the green alien one for sleep, but it’s REALLY pricey :). nvm

  • Judee

    Do we have a live stream for Allison???

  • baebae

    Thanks Adamland! And thanks, mj! Even a livestream! I’m all settled in and ready. So Adam will come on around 9:30 then?

  • Miss Chaos

    I was told it started at 8:30, I dont know if thats Adam or Allison starting off the show. So excited!!!!!!!

  • retjenny

    This will be a historic event. Thanks MJ and Adamland for providing us will a window to peek thru!

  • woozasam

    This place seems very small or is it just the pictures? Does anyone know the seating capacity?

  • tiger92

    adamland: Thanks so much for giving your time! It’s a big commitment and I appreciate you stepping up to help out!

    T-shirts $35-$50

    WTF? is anybody buying this? ugh.

    These are standard prices at concerts. My daughter bought a baby tee at the John Mayer concert for $50. It was a paper thin, v-neck that said “John Mayer” in black lettering with a red heart on the front of the shirt. That’s it. For 50 bucks!!!

    I’ve been paying $45-$50 for concert t-shirts for years.

  • dhunken

    Thanks Adamland and Mj OMG I am so excited and nervous and I am not even really there…but this is the next best thing…… Please please let the live stream sound good. I just want to say I am honored to be experiencing Adam’s opening night of his first major solo concert of his Glam Nation Tour with each of you. I can’t think of a better bunch to spend it with….Woo Hoo let the games begin. Allison!!!!!!!

  • tiger92

    Dang, this blog is really turning into and Adam blog.

    like i said i’ve never cared about that stuff before. i thought pink elephant for 33$ was audacity. apparently i was wrong. LOL!

    i hope we have at least Allison’s set too. I would like to see Ori too, but Alli more.

  • Studio57

    Alli is on singing Holiday

  • Judee

    so no Allison. sigh.

    Is there a live stream for Allison’s part of the concert?

  • Studio57
  • jms

    i hope we have at least Allison’s set too. I would like to see Ori too, but Alli more.

    If not caught on livestream, I’m sure someone will get them to youtube later.

    “Alli is on singing Holiday”

    Huh? Do you really mean she isn’t singing or is this a pun intending to say she’ll be singing the song Holiday?

    Thanks Adamland for doing this. I imagine this is gonna be a looooong thread. This tour could really turn out to be amazing. Allison and Orianthi opening for Adam Lambert. Amazeballs! Seriously, we’ve got rock princess in training, a guitar goddess and the glitter king. Can’t get much better imho. Great singing with Adam and Alli and shredding like you won’t believe from Orianthi, not to mention guitar god Monte Pittman. This could be the stuff dreams are made off. On with the show!

  • Judee

    I LOVE HER!!!! (*butOMGthestreamsoundsterrible*)

    David Immerman is a superb guitarist, very under rated. He can shredd like the best. This bill has three outstanding guitarists. Might be the best tour of the summer. I don’t think there’s a tour that can compete with the vocals and the Axeman of this show. Im serious, coz Ive seen them all.

    Studio57, I did my homework on Alli’s guitarist David Immerman and the guy has some skills. He’s a geek with the guitar, so he’s got the chops. No sleepy time in this tour – it’ll be like a blitz from beginning to end.

    seats sold

    FMKirbyCenter @smeggingnuts Not sure. Not too many seats needed to killed for production at all and EVERY SINGLE sellable seat was sold. Crazy!

    i would prefer 20 min Ori, 40 Alli … but that’s just me. Allison’s album is much better than Ori’s IMO.

    Nope Not just you!

    Her guitar playing is just out of this world fantastic. That’s how she’s getting this crowd warmed up for Adam !! (Not they need it.)

    Damn that last guitar playing from Ori !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Really? The sound on the live feed wasn’t great, but from what I could tell, it sounded like she did really well. I think the big difference is we aren’t as familiar with her songs.

  • weareallinnocent

    So while we wait for the main event, could someone enlighten about all the angst re whether Lane is still with Adam? Thx!

    Orianthi was really good, but I think you need better sound to really appreciate her guitar work. Must have been something to be there live.

    I don’t know about Wilkes Barre but most of the tickets went straight to stub hub. A hardcore fan is a hardcore fan- they know how to get ‘er done, lol.

    If you’re not on AO, you don’t get tickets if there’s a pre-sale. I only got a ticket (row R too, pretty far) for the Cleveland show because a friend who is also an Adam fan was registered on his site and was ready to buy as soon as they went on sale. Otherwise? Fat chance for me, a hardcore Allison fan, to get any tickets.

  • Oksana2000

    Smegg, where are you looking???

  • Judee

    stairs? really Adumb? what is going on???? LOL i think Adam needs arena stage.

  • OnePlusSix

    Thought Orianthi was great, and yes, she may not be for everyone, but Adam is glad to have her on board so everyone should be happy for all of them. So far, it’s been a blast! Thank you to hannabec for the live feed and MJ for this “site”ful communication venue.

    His name is Adam.

  • Studio57

    PRMari- I had a presale password and STILL didn’t get tickets in Cleveland. the presales were pretty much a bust. I got 12 row on stub hub. If I were a patient woman, I could probably wait and get better ones because they reduce them as time goes on, but I’m not, lol.

  • baebae

    Maybe the three of them should stream it in shifts so their batteries don’t run out. :)

  • Organic

    All these livestreams – wonder if Adam realizes that he’s performing for maybe triple the 1,800 that are there.

  • Judee

    this will be almost 3 hours long, right?

    this will be almost 3 hours long, right?

    Yep-sure will.

    so about 14 mins til Adam hits the stage right?

  • Studio57

    I wish one of these three would start streaming

  • listen

    PRMari- I had a presale password and STILL didn’t get tickets in Cleveland. the presales were pretty much a bust

    Ditto for San Diego and my sister and I were both trying to get tickets during the pre-sale.

    There was another pre-Internet sale today, which I couldn’t really participate in, but my sister did, but was only able to get 1-ticket which she let go, because we really want 3! She was never able to get in to get 3 tickets….

    So, yeah, scalpers seem to get the most tickets, much of the time. sigh

    Damn, and paying more $ for a 20 min set is really not a good deal at all. So, someone who’s primarily an Allison fan is really screwed here, therefore, not surprising that not a lot of people recorded her set apparently.

    :) Okay, so I won’t write her off just yet. She could have been more aggravating to me because I was having computer problems and was afraid I wouldn’t get it fixed before Adam came on. She was making me more nervous. Probably not her fault, huh? It’s fixed now, so on with the show!

    ETA: I usually like her, so I guess it was just me tonight.

I am so happy it went smoothly for all of them. I would say though that I would like him to end the concert on a more energetic number like PUU or FYE of FS WLL (in a perfect world). Just add on one more song after Mad World to bring the tempo back up. Otherwise, I loved all of it..he’s perfect. A great performer and a wonderful person. He is on his way to superstardom!!!!!

  • lorenzo

    I can’t tell you how glad I am that he sang RING OF FREAKING FIRE!
    Such a great song… and he can show range without blowing out his voice… I have wanted this since Idol ended!

    The…THE most perfect singer has the great oppertunity to sing these great songs and make them his own… because of Idol.. even though people remake classics all the time these days… hell I was shocked to find out how many songs I grew up loving were remakes.. tons would suprise you.

    I will no doubt catch every show that I can, which I would not do to listen to the debut album songs.. over and over… I’d catch one or two, but many now.

    and Sleepwalker rules… WWFM, too.. and Sure Fire, but I love RING OF FIRE!

    Shut up “Tiger” :)

    LaurelG, probably anything is better than Hammond, lol. I am west, so I think Rockford is actually my best bet; although I know nothing about the venue. Hammond is just a really, really crappy drive for me. I was so hoping he would do an actual Chicago show :(

    I do think it would be easier to get tickets for Hammond, though.

    Chicagolaw – please come to Hammond. There are still tickets at Ticketmaster and general admission on StubHub are going for $6 for the $45 dollar face and there are 450 left. I’m worried there won’t be a good crowd. I am west of Chicago too but traffic on I80 that time of day won’t be bad since the show isn’t until 8:00 pm.

    dear obsessed glamberts. why are you like annoying mosquitos waiting at the buses? if you’re more than 12 it’s pathetic. he’s tired and wants to rest. leave him alone and go home. thank you!

    Just pretty good?

    How about some details, like the stage setting, costumes, etc. Thx…

  • Marie23

    lol Judee, I was kinda thinking the same thing when I saw all those ppl hoovering around the bus, was thinking, this is not American Idol Tour ppl, but just letting it wash off me, doesn’t matter, Adam was great tonight, and I’m gonna go to sleep on a high, night peeps

  • lorismile

    Vooddoo and ROF – holy shit!! His voice is incredible. Those songs are so sensual and his voice is so damn sexy singing them live. Plus the background visuals. Just an amazing complete package. I got goosebumps on a few songs he sang tonight…Sleepwalker and Soaked are a couple of them. The whole concert was created to stimulate you visually, auditorily (whatever the word is lol). He literally does take you away!!! My oldest daughter was not a huge fan and she was completely swept away. She couldn’t believe how good he sounds live and how he completely entertains you in every moment of the concert.

  • revcat

    It’s okay Judee. Once I stood in line after a concert to get an autograph and I’m not going to tell you who it was as I would be laughed off the planet. When I finally got to the head of the line the dude didn’t even look up LOL.

  • Planet Fierce

    Lorismile, now that is more like it…thank you. It sure sounds like he delivered on what he wanted to accomplish with the show…good for him!!!

  • lorismile

    I’m spilling…lol Give me a second to catch my breath!!! I loved the long coat he wore. Reminded me of the one at the finale for Mad World. And he swished it around a couple of times!! Like a little kid playing dress up. Started off with a mad hatter hat! LOL. Couldn’t see the details of his pants but they looked like a leather pair but I could be wrong. Later he had a pair of pants with a wide glitter stripe (looked like) with matching vest and white shirt. He made a gesture of smelling his arm pits and saying it was hot! LOL He’s like a little kid when he laughs. :-)

  • baebae

    Glad you enjoyed it, Lorismile. Even the livestream was wonderful, so it must have been all the moreso live!

    lol What a character. Thanks for the recap. Especially of the costumes since we couldn’t see them very well. I thought he was in the white shirt all night from the stream. Glad he had other costumes.

  • adamisthemanfan

    I knew he would reprise Ring of Fire!! His rendition is absolutely amazing :) off to look for vids :)))

  • lorismile

    The stage setting. He had a mini Feeling Good staircase with a little platform on the top. Plus at sigfthe front of the stage near the sides, two table like things that he would stand on, sit on. Monte stood on one of them once and jumped down and Adam looked like he had to kind of jump back…lol. The stage was small but they did a great job with setting to use every piece of it and give it a larger feel. His visuals are incredible. TONS of lasers!!! A background screen that was changed to fit each song. Swear it was like watching a live music video sometimes. He utilized the platform really well I thought.

    I wonder why Adam hasn’t performed PUU live yet. I know it’s the hardest to sing, but I think that’s not the only reason. Something about something that Rivers Cuomo said (homophobic remark, maybe?). Does anyone know?

  • lorismile

    so in the rof video…you only see a little of the fire flames behind him. There was a giant ring of fire on the screen. Where he was kneeling and standing, it was right in the of the ring. So it looked like Fire was all around Adam. IT WAS SO COOL!!! His visuals…so stunning!! I was sitting in the balcony so I think I got a better look at the whole effect than someone sitting close up.

  • lorismile

    SMEGGS….that jacket in SW was my favorite. He looks so sexy in a long jacket like that. Plus it seemed like he was setting it in a graveyard or something….so it fit perfectly.

    I really loved acoustic Aftermath too! It was wonderful. Soaked – as you will see…OMFG…vocal masterpiece!

    So the Sleepwalker video….you dont see it but he has giant angel statues on the screen behind him. You can see a little bit of them lol You also miss the dancers laying on the floor lifeless until Adam walks by them. I mean who wouldn’t wake from the dead when Adam is near!!!

  • weareallinnocent

    ppwars: mj will put up an Alli thread when vids surface. She sang DWTP, cover of Heartbreaker, and FIBOY. That’s all I know. The link for the ustream under the name hannabec had a recording at some point. Not great quality, but it should tied you over if you’re jonesin’. :-)

    cwm – I’ve been thinking about the song list as well and I agree with what you’ve got.

    He did say there might be a couple of covers. I was thinking that RING OF FIRE might work in the first segment. A girl can hope.

    Mad World could fit in the acoustic portion.

  • ppwars

    Following adam’s glowing review in the timesleader:

    Season 8 fourth-place finisher Allison Iraheta started the evening off with a six-song, 20-minute set highlighted by “Don’t Waste The Pretty,” joined by guitarist Orianthi, a faithful and fabulous cover of Pat Benatar’s “Heartbreaker” and an attitude-filled “Friday I’ll Be Over U.”

    Orianthi then did a 40-minute set of her own, capped by an amazing version of “Let’s Go Crazy,” in which the Australian-born guitarist gave Prince (not a bad guitarist in his own right) a run for his money. Her voice is fine, but her guitar playing is spectacular.

    Thanks cwm. I tried as best I could to see the audience thru the haze on the ustream to see if there was much of that going on. The lighting in the crowd was pretty dark, so I thought maybe Adam couldn’t even see them. I’m anxious to hear his reaction when he finds out or if he comments. I know he says he likes it when fans “dress up” to come to his shows and participate. So I’m hoping he will like this as well.

    CWM – thanks for confirmation of that.

    I love all of Adam’s songs and am really glad that he is doing Ring of Fire and Mad World, but I’m just curious (and a bit surprised) why he didn’t do FYE. I know he wants the show to be a bit more family friendly (and doesn’t want to offend anyone like at the AMA), but given the fact that FYE was his first song to hit radio and his first video, I would think that the audience would be expecting to hear it.

    I enjoy all of his music, and am not heartbroken that FYE isn’t part of the set, I’m just curious as to what other people think.

  • smeggingnuts
  • JudyOhio

    Just watched the posted videos. Soaked held me spellbound. What a beautiful, beautiful vocal. After all the talk of pitchy regarding the current winner, THIS vocal of Adam’s (Soaked) was a joy. You don’t have to tweak your ears to hear if it’s truly in tune, all you need do is sit back, take it in, and enjoy the artistry.

    He’s put a lot into the visuals of his stage show. The only criticism I have of it is that the stage wasn’t large enough to totally appreciate it. Would like to see him in venues with a substantially more raised stage. This is quite a professional production, and I’ll be pleased when he can be in a larger venue where the action on stage (lighting, back screen, choreography, etc) can be more spread out and appreciated.

    Once again, I’m pleased to see that he actually DID delete anything that could be construed as distasteful. What a pleasure to watch this man perform. He doesn’t need the extra acting out (as in the AMAs). He is OUTSTANDING with the vocals, stage presence, and good looks alone. Bravo Adam! You’ve put together one great concert here!

Highest price is white T-shirt with huge Eye or Horus (sp?) on the front. $10 poster is Lee Cherry’s photo that was used for his cover of IIHY. Two other T-shirt designs were similar to his original album cover and another blue one had all the tour dates listed on the back. Also available were fingerless gloves ($35), a $5 sticker “Adam is my BF”. His merchandise was selling fast and there were a lot of people there during Ori’s set, let alone each of the 2 intermissions.

    Orianthi had 2 to 3 T-shirt designs, a $10 poster and keyring.

    Allison had one T-shirt design.

    Lurker here from Season 8 week 13. Couldn’t sleep till I saw these. My face is frozen in a smile, it hung there so long watching these vids. Thank you all who had a hand in sharing your joyful night with Adam on opening night of his rise to superstardom! Will see him in Puyallup. Hope he is still awake enough to sing!

    WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amazing amazing show! He sounds and looks so fab- and the atmosphere!!

    YES to RING OF FIRE!!!! Wooooohooooo!!!!

    And his make-up is unbeilievable!!!!

    I wish i could see more of the video art that was on the screen- but I ain’t complaining!

    I think it was smart no to do FYE. Everything just worked fabulously! Aftermath was great!
    I’m seriously thinking it ahould be a single after Sleepwalker- it’s VERY radio-friendy- and he blows it out of the water…

    Thank you Adamland! Thank you mj! And thank you suz526!

  • Dlynne

    I love what he was wearing during IIHY. Love the sequined “A” on the back of his vest. Did he have a wardrobe malfunction? It looks like he pulled part of his shirt out under his arms at one point and the edges were frayed. Maybe it was a half shirt or something that just came loose. Anyway, his reaction to it was cute.

    I also love how his hair kept falling down in his face by that point and he kept pushing it back. Pretty damn sexy.

    Thank you everyone for the vids. I am so happy for him. He definitely poured his heart and soul into this concert tonight. I couldn’t love him more.

  • cwm

    Phew — that was fun! Just made it through all of the videos. Outstanding. The vocals, the visuals, the costumes, the dancing, the band… all of it was glitterific and glamtastic! :P

    This gal’s got some good pictures:

    Thanks again to adamland, mj, suz526, smeggs, and of course, Adam and his band and dancers!

  • smeggingnuts

    yeah I am thinking it was a half shirt and the in seams came undone. It happened to both sides I think. Just one of those kinks to work out :)

  • cwm

    Dlynne– I agree with everything in your post. Yep, it did look like he had a wardrobe malfunction. It looked like maybe the sleeve seams got ripped? His reaction to it was funny.

    I really enjoyed his dancing, especially in Fever and IIHY. And I too loved how his hair refused to be tamed after a while and he had to just keep pushing it back.

    I’m so thrilled to see his dreams coming to fruition. He’s amazing. I hope he really enjoyed himself tonight and took it all in.

    ETA: Upon further inspection, I agree with you, smeggs. I think it is a half shirt and it got pulled out of his vest sleeves on both sides from when he lifted his arms up high.

  • cwm
  • Organic

    Had to wake up early to see what was here. Great pictures cwm, thanks. Man that suz526 takes good videos. Seems like she’s been to all of his concerts. I’m out of superlatives to use to describe how great Adam is. Those lazers are something else. And I just love his performance of Aftermath. And what a way to start a concert. Never would have guessed he’d open with VooDoo until he gave it away in his interview. If I just saw him for the first time, I’d never have guessed in a million years that he came from American Idol. Perfect outfit to start the show in also. He looks great in hats.

    Best surprise of the night – ROF!! LOVE LOVE LOVE that arrangement. If he’s singing this every night, this song will be his just like Mad World has become.

  • Kanadie Bonttell

    As it turns out Aftermath is incredibly good live, you need to watch this person’s video of it. The perspective and quality are really good!

  • lorismile

    Organic – thanks for posting that review. I was a little worried because the crowd seemed subdued, but he was right, it erupted when Adam’s picture came up. Interesting, they played FYE single while his CD cover and another pic by Lee Cheery were shown on the large background screen but Adam and the band weren’t there yet. The crowd was all singing along. My voice is completely hoarse from yelling last night LMAO.

  • Studio57

    What a great morning- I didn’t even wait for the coffee, lol. Suz is the man. she really is. When he sings WWFM and gets to the Freak/thanks for loving me part, I broke out in tears when everyone went wild and you could tell he was a little choked up.

    Then Soaked. Man that song gets me every.damn.time. Cannot wait to feel the full effect of the concerts. Exactly 3 weeks!!!!!!!

    Only one thing would have made that concert better. PICK YOU UP.

  • Studio57

    Lorismile- I noticed on camera that the crowd was subdued but I think it was because just about everyone was FILMING it, lol.

  • Organic

    Wow Lorismile – great that you were actually there. Very happy for you. I wonder when RCA will finally let the press into a concert and if a few RCA people were actually there last night.

    I love Adam’s hair when it falls in his face. Sure Fire Winners – so sexy. I can already tell, I’m not getting much done on this Saturday.

  • lorismile

    Yes saga I did. They are in bits and pieces though lol

    When he sings WWFM and gets to the Freak/thanks for loving me part, I broke out in tears when everyone went wild and you could tell he was a little choked up.

    That was so beautiful!!! For a die-hard fan like me, it was really heartwarming. It’s amazing the different ages and mixture of crowd Adam had at the show. My oldest daughter has been to some rock concerts recently and she mentioned between Orianthi and Adam.

  • tls62

    Don’t judge me……I fell off the wagon. :( I gave it my best effort but I just couldn’t keep away this morning. I should have known better…..resist AFL….yeah, right. :)

    He’s just marvelous. The wardrobe malfunction was all kinds of adorable. Floppy hair FTW!

    The final straw that knocked me off the wagon this morning was reading Ferras’ tweet with the YouTube link to Aftermath: @adamlambert crying my eyes out. beautiful dear friend. MAGICAL. breathtaking.

    And he’s right….Aftermath was breathtaking.

  • TexasWannaHoldEm

    Wow!!!! This looks like it was even so much better than I was expecting!!! I can’t believe what a beautiful, creative, colorful show Adam was able to put together for his first tour.

    These are a few of my favorite things:

    1-LOVE Adam’s hair – how can he do so many things with it???
    2- LOVE all of his outfits – especially love the vest with rolled-up sleeves on shirt with “A” (for “Adamgasm”? :) ) on the back
    3-And finally I can say, I LOVE the dancer’s outfits (doin’ the happy dance!)
    4-LOVE the lasers!
    5-LOVE Longineau – he looks like a hot Avatar with the stripe down his face!
    6-And of course, the vocals and stage presence are indescribable.

    I’m just so happy for Adam. His hard work, talent and discipline are really shining through. I say bring on the reviewers – we’re not skerd :)

    Aftermath was great! I’m seriously thinking it ahould be a single after Sleepwalker- it’s VERY radio-friendy- and he blows it out of the water…

    Mr, I couldn’t agree with you more. I’ve always thought it was perfect for radio (and AI-9 boot song, BTW) and his performance of it tonight was unforgettable! Can’t wait for July 15 in KC.

  • Studio57

    I hope he does emo hair sometimes- I miss that in concert threads where people would just tweet EMO! or Elvis!, lol.

    I also hope he switches up the encore nightly- wouldn’t that be cool to have something diffferent all the time?

    did you guys notice his tophat had a huge “A” on it too?

  • Chicagolaw

    These videos are awesome! And I have always loved Aftermath :) What lucky fans who got to see the opener.

  • Esqt

    WOW! Those videos were amazing. I am very impressed by the level of artistry & creativity they put on this show. It’s so well-crafted, from the choreography, costumes, hair/makeup, visuals, and lightings. And the singing – so much passion, vocals – so effortless. Love Monte & Tommy; they tore the stage up. It must be the competitive nature of the beasts, lol.

    Hopefully, there’ll be some videos of Alli & Ori too.

  • lorismile

    Honestly guys…the videos do not bring justice to the whole show. I really encourage you to go if you can.

    You know, afterwards, when I was getting ready for bed, I though of luv. Luv- I really hope you get to see him live on this tour!! :-) fingers crossed for you – from your aunt Lori. I swear I would buy you the tickets myself if I had to.

    PS You know I read it here on MJ’s some place but Allison and Orianthi should form a band together. I think finally Don’t Waste the Pretty will be the song that gets Alli the recognition outside the bubble she deserves and should get here the radio play. IMHO

  • lorismile

    Sorry I keep thinking of things…forgive me.

    His tour merchandise is pretty cool. Much better shirts than the AI tour. I bought about $200 worth of stuff lol
    1. Eye of Horus shirt is really cool and extremely expensive! It’s $50. White with the eye of horus on the front and his name on in smaller letters on the edge of the arm seam.
    2. A black Tshirt with his album cover in orange and the tour dates on the back ($35 or $40)
    3. A ladies thank top black with Adam Lambert in pink and a smoking gun under it. (about $30)
    4. Black fingerless gloves with Adam Lambert on one hand and Glam Nation on the other. ($35)
    5. There was a neon green shirt with his face on it (about $40)
    6. A shirt with a disco ball I think – it was blue. (about $35)
    7. Keychains ($10) and a sticker that says Adam is my BF ($5) and
    poster of the IIHY cover Lee shot ($10)
    I think there was at least one other Tshirt but I can’t remember it. I’ll take pictures of stuff and post it although others have probably already posted stuff.

  • baebae

    I had a brief sleep overnight, now back to the videos. :D What a fabulous show it was!!!! (I don’t usually use exclamation points much, but I’m going to borrow one of mr’s for this occasion. ;) )

  • mr

    Another thing about Aftermath- after watching it again- in the beginning he sings it softly with his falsetto- but then in the end- I LOVE how he goes for a full-chested “IN THE AFTERMAAAATH”- mark 4:31… incredible! This is what sets him apart from so many! He has such incredible range and use of technique!

    Did I mention how I LOVED the make-up??? Kuddos to the amazing make-up artist!

    Oh- and I loved how he made a point of saying “I LOVE these dancers”… just to get into everyone’s head to not mess with his dancers or they’d be messing with him!! I sure hope they never get harassed again- I think they’re doing a wonderful job!

    OMG. His face at “thanks for loving me, you’re doing it perfectly” in WWFM!! I can’t stop watching that vid, it’s amazing.

    Love that part. It’s come to have so much meaning for him (and now us). I always wait for that part.

  • dhunken

    Thanks lorismile for the behind the scenes and the on the spot reporting of what the atmosphere was like at the concert and all the little things we don’t get to see from the videos. I very much appreciate it and am so happy for you and the experience of being there live and in person for his first concert. Could you feel his energy or how the whole reality of what was going on for him and how surreal it must have been.

    How was the crowd? What was the make up of the crowd? Was there many Allison fans there or was it a crowd pretty much like me and love both of them. Did the format of the concert in 3 act thing for Adam work? You know was it obvious he was taking you on a journey. Oh jeez I am asking too many question. Last and really only one did you have a blast and one of the best times of your life!!!!! That is the only important question.

  • dhunken

    I do agree with the reviewer that no one at RCA had anything to worry about. Adam was great Press could have been there IMHO. I think though they were more concerned about timing of the lighting and lasers and the logistics then they were about Adam and Adam’s voice. Unless of course he has not fully recovered from the vocal strain. (He was subdued with the vocal acrobats, but I think you would only notice if you are a die-hard fan. (raises hand slowly) )

  • adamized

    Wow oh Wow! Loved the wardrobe malfunction. Very funny…
    Thank you for the wonderful videos and having this community of “friends” to share this spectacular talent. Can’t wait to hear more from the folks that were there. dhunken…your questions are perfect.

    Live shows are always better than videos, but with Adam it would be so even more because he’s such a great entertainer. Not sure why they’re not adding Glam Nation to Canada anywhere. I might have to take a little European vacation when he goes there. :)

  • jms

    (He was subdued with the vocal acrobats, but I think you would only notice if you are a die-hard fan. (raises hand slowly) )

    I expect the whole tour will be that way. Those acrobatics that we love are very hard on the voice. If he wants to keep his voice in decent shape for the whole tour, he can’t do much of that.

  • aa618892

    Amazing. Great pictures. Man, I love him all sweaty,disheveled,hair messy, sexy as hell! The outfits were fantastic and those pants of his, whew, excellent tailoring. I am going to have to break down and try to go to the St. Pete show after the ballgame if a more intimate venue doesn’t show up in Florida. I cannot miss this!

    I wonder if he’s saving that for the European tour since it’s on their CD. But then, he did sing Voodoo.

  • adamized

    baebae: could be that he is saving CLYG for European tour. I ordered the UK CD so I could have the four bonus tracks especially CLYG. It is my favorite of all of his songs so far. Really gets to me…

    Adam’s hair will always be a focus since it seems to have a life of it’s own. I’m not sure I love the emo with the shaved sides but… hair grows and Adam loves to change it up…

  • baebae

    Thanks Adamland, Smeggs and mj for all your work finding and posting the videos. Going to watch them all now.

  • OnePlusSix

    @dhunken: I think the questions you’re asking with regards to the 3-act setup, etc are interesting to hear talked about and I’m sure that Lorismile and others are only too glad to pass on their thoughts. I know when I invest in a concert and come away as excited as everyone did last night, all I want to do is talk it to death (so to speak). I too was wondering about the makeup of the crowd….children? men? age variety? people dressed for the occasion? obsessive? manageable? etc, etc, you get the picture, lol.

    On a serious note though, I truly want to say thank you to everyone who contributed their pics, videos, comments, etc along with a “SPECIAL” thank you to Adamland and MJ for making it possible for many of us (who aren’t able to attend) feel that we were there on some level – the excitement of it all was/is terrific. Many thanks from Canada!

  • mr

    dhunken-
    I agree that it looked polished and proffessional enough for the media to be let in for the most part, but I did notice (or imagine? lol) that at the end of both IIHY and Broken Open, there seemed to be some technical issues… he was really sending out distressed faces to his tech crew, I thought, and didn’t sing at one point, where I’m pretty sure he was supposed to…
    But I tend to agree that someone who doesn’t know every second of every song probably wouldn’t have noticed…

  • OnePlusSix

    (He was subdued with the vocal acrobats, but I think you would only notice if you are a die-hard fan. (raises hand slowly) )

    I expect the whole tour will be that way. Those acrobatics that we love are very hard on the voice. If he wants to keep his voice in decent shape for the whole tour, he can’t do much of that.

    Agree. Adam did say in an interview that he had a vocal coach to help determine which register/key to perform each number so as to maintain his voice for the “entire” tour. It would be a shame for him to have to postpone any venues, etc. But hey, it really doesn’t matter how he sings them because “he’s doing it perfectly”.

  • Jae

    Q3 posted on PF that the crowd was as diverse as you see at any concert. From kids to older couples and everyone in between, male female. I think I saw a tweet that said 60/40 f/m. And not just the glammed up mega fans. That was the best I could hope for. That is how Adam will expand beyond the Idol bubble.

  • mr

    Oh- and baeabae and adamazed-
    From your lips to god about Can’t Let You Go!
    I FLOVE that song, and I’m planning on going to one of his European shows!

    That’s the nature of live shows, there’s often unexpected things happen. But the energy of the crowd and just seeing the performer live always makes up for any small distractions. I mean, seriously, Adam could sit on a stool all night and people would go nuts. :D

    Outstandly concert, Outastanding singer, and showman!!
    I didn’t love his top hat, and stringy coat but I sure loved his out fit with the vest and pant(very tight). I loved the vest with the blue stripes on each side, and even that rather wide stripped coat.
    Most of all I wept and laughed with his voices,Dancers, and Band were all great, and fit like a glove!!

    A lot of audience interaction. In IIHY, at least.

    Was the crowd full of old ladies?

  • woozasam

    He certainly did have a mad world on top of his head by the time he sang it! lol How about Longineu walking off the stage at the end all sweaty with no shirt. So much fun, as always he’s amazing! Thanks MJ, Adamland and smeggs for all the work!

  • baebae

    When he stopped singing at that one part in IIHY, the audience helped him along with the singing. lol One thing I would liked to have seen was one of the other band members (Cam maybe?) singing the higher register during the chorus. I like the harmony in that part.

    I like that Adam appeals to such a wide range of ages. That’s a real rarity these days. Several generations of a family can go to one of his concerts and all enjoy it.

    Was the crowd full of old ladies?

    You know, there were a lot of old ladies. There were a lot of young ladies. There was a fair number of kids, young men, and older men too. There were just plain a lot of people.

    I chatted with the (early 30′s) guy next to me. He and his wife live in the WB area and didn’t even hear about the show until tickets were sold out. Fortunately his wife knows a Kirby Center VIP and he was able to hook them up with two single tickets (in different parts of the theater). It’s too bad with this small of venues the casual fans don’t have much of a chance. On the other hand, selling out is a great problem for Adam to have.

  • baebae

    Aftermath isn’t one of my favourites, but boy, that version is so much better than the album’s.

  • luval

    So I was there last night 6 rows from the front. I rarely swear but ADAM FUCKING LAMBERT PUT ON THE MOST SPECTACULAR SHOW EVAH!!!!!!!! Lorismile I’m sure gave everyone the lowdown. I can’t even describe how great Adam Lambert was. The wardrobe malfunction was the funniest thing! The show was totally family friendly. And there were many many families there. And as said the age range was from 5- 85 from what I could tell. When the show ended this 14 yr old girl behind me was SOBBING! I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. No crotch grabs and not too many pelvic thrusts. To me the most Adam did sexy wise was when he introduced his dancers and they each did their “thing”. When Brooke came on he danced with her and wow wow wow was Adam wild, crazy and sexy dancing with her!!!
    omg when he started ROF…people freaked!!!!. The dancers were spectacular with Adam…. Honestly when Adam is onstage you really don’t notice the band that much sorry to say. I don’t even remember Cam. Adam just takes over the stage. It’s so hard to explain. You have to see it to believe it.
    Alison was a good opening act. She was only on about 20-25 minutes. Orianthi was ok. Too long really. And myself and the woman next to me were kind of shocked when the audience didn’t sing along or cheer or anything to her song According to you.
    Anyway, I am still in a daze and will be seeing him at Foxwoods in a couple of weeks…not that good seats though. People you have to see this Adam.
    Oh, the merchandise….hmmmmmmmm. The usual shirts but I was surprised there was nothing like Glam Nation bumper stickers or something like that.
    Gotta get a drink…..

  • ilovekrisallen39

    Ok I just watch Sleepwalker and I just have to know if it well be his next single.I just love that song so much.(so does my 7 YR old son.) And every time he sings it live it gets better and better.Love the song Adam please next single.Just love it.

  • luval

    Oh, maybe someone mentioned this…Be prepared to stand up during Adam’s whole set..even the acoustic numbers.

  • mttp

    Love the last costume that Adam wearing at the end of the show (the vest with white sleeves). He looks so young and so handsome.

  • ilovekrisallen39

    Ok which vid has the The wardrobe malfunction,just have to see that one next.Sounds like you had a blast luval.Am so jealosy(sorry forget how to spell that word.)of everyone that gets to see Kris,Adam,and Allison live.My favorite three Idols ever.

  • baebae

    Oh luval, I didn’t realize you were going to this show! Thanks for the recap.

    I think the glittery “A” on the back of Adam’s vest should have been an “A+”. :D

  • luval

    Reading back through the posts…about the flash mob thing…I did not see anyone do it. Honestly I think it would be distracting anyway. The security kept everyone out of the aisles so unless you danced by yourself in your seat (which i did!), don’t think a flash mob would work. Plus Adam isn’t really looking out at the audience during this song that much. He’s involved with his dancers…My oh my it was fantastic.

  • vmac

    Just watched the first vid, medley with ROF. All I can say is, HOLY SHIT, this man’s talent is beyond words!!

    Can’t wait to see him at the Nokia, NYC on the 22nd. I understand that the Nokia is general admission standing, but in FAQ it was mentioned that there are 500 stationary seats for whoever gets there first. Does anyone know where in the theater that these seats might be?

  • luval

    The shirt malfunction (Or should I say when he noticed the frayed shirt pieces hanging out under his arms_) happened I think after one of his songs near the end. But I’ll have to look at the video’s because he does sing with the frays hanging there. Or maybe it’s when he’s introducing the band. Anyway, when he went offstage then came back for the encore they were back in place. REally funny!

    Oh, I know several people said they partied with the band at a local bar bacause they were there for a couple of days. I had a Monte moment. I was strolling outside of the hotel and I saw Monte come out of the theater all by himself with his beanie on. So I walked up behind me and said hello…he was very gracious and walked about a block with me. No one, absolutely no once recognized him but me! I was so flustered but I jabbered away at normal things. Then got his autograph. I swear he asked me to have a beer with him, but I could have been wrong! btw it was 3pm and he was looking to have a beer.

  • aislinn

    Haven’t read through all the comments in this thread(720+!), but had to chime in to say this was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. The New Orleans theme that opened the show was brilliant, and the way one song flowed into another just kept building the energy and mood in the theater. It was all fantastic, but a couple of spots were standouts for me – Adam’s performance on Soaked was exquisite. He set such a mood with it stripped down to just him and Cam on the keyboard, and his vocals were gorgeous. It was a shame that some of the crowd felt the need to fill in every break in the song or dramatic pause with their shrieking, but otherwise it transported me. Strut was so fun – great costume, great dancing, really came together well. There were so many wonderful details – Aftermath isn’t one of my favorites from the CD, but the way he and Monte did it acoustically really worked; likewise, I’m not too fond of the upbeat Mad World that he’s taken to performing, but when he riffed towards the end of it for the encore, it was really cool. The whole show was fantastic!

  • renataamelo

    Ok just watched all the videos. First let me express myself in my native language so I can get off my chest accordingly!

    PQP esse foi um dos melhores shows que eu já vi na minha vida! Não existe ninguem como esse cara!UAU!

    Ok, so I have a few things to say about this AMAZING, AMAZING show!

    a) First of all, the wardrobe was beautiful! A watched the videos so many times so I could pay attention to the details! Loved especially Adam´s zebra jacket with the tail!
    b) The visuals were amazing. They definetely setup the mood for the show. It was so creative and Adam just prooved that you really don´t need to be flying on the stage to put on a great show. He did that with lasers and images.
    c) I really liked the dancers! They really added to the show!
    d) Liked also the fact that I didn´t hear a lot of backing vocal tracks. I can clearly hear Cam ´s voice on the backing volcal and she has a beautiful voice.
    e) I don´t even gonna start on the voice!

    So I cried watching WWFM! Got horny with the Adommy interaction and drool over Longineu tribal painting over his chest! Adam really gave me something to hear, to look at and to feel. Mission acomplised Adam!

    I am pretty sure it is the IIHY video that you see it or SFW. It was after a Wardrobe change. I think SFW since that is my favorite song by him I would have seen that the most. :-) It was nothing, I think when they were dressing him somehow the underarm of the shirt either ripped or wasn’t tucked in the vest far enough. The more I think about it the more I am sure its SFW

    YEP SFW for Sure

  • luval

    Hope I don’t hog the posts. Myself and 2 friends went to the tour buses after the show and waited. Monte, Tommy, Longineau and the dancers all came by and were cheered. Lane too They were really sweet and cute. Tommy looks like a pretty angel. After about 45 minutes there was a loud loud cheer. Out came Adam surrounded by at least 6 big security bodyguards and went from the building to the bus. He was wearing his blue hoodie and sunglasses. They rushed him by. We were right in front of the bus as he got on and shook the bus driver’s hand!! So gracious.

  • tls62

    I wasn’t really on board with the flash mob thing anyway. Maybe a fun thing to do outside the venue when everybody is waiting or something, but not during the concert. I thought it would be cool if everybody would just incorporate a couple tiny signature moves for the tour. Like putting up the peace sign when he does it in IIHY, since peace and love is his message to everyone, and maybe the fanning part at the end of Fever. He always fans himself at the end and is looking at the audience. How cool if everybody fanned themselves as well.

    I don’t mind saying I’m geting giddy for Tuesday. I have no idea how I’ll make it through work Monday.

    this was awesome, I can’t wait till my concert date …..who else is going to be in Las Vegas? come on guys, let’s get together, we are already meeting with Mieps, Cheryl, Green Hippo and Kanadie, anybody else?

    what I love about Adam (among other things, of course), is how he always dresses up to the occasion – no plaid or worn out jeans, always buttoned up, such class and elegance…..

  • aislinn

    Oh, maybe someone mentioned this…Be prepared to stand up during Adam’s whole set..even the acoustic numbers.

    Depends on the venue, and where you are in the venue. I was up in the balcony, and nobody was standing, except for in a few spots.

  • Judee

    happy! i really loved almost everything (even the clothes surprisingly).
    what i didn’t like: 1. i would ditch mad world as an encore – it’s boring and sing either FYE (it’s the lead single afterall) or some dope cover (sweet child of mine maybe???? i don’t know)
    2. the whole show seems to float too quickly – don’t know why, maybe talking more with the audience would help a bit, but i understand that Adam is a little freaked out by them, so would i.
    3. fans behaviour :)

    Also i changed my mind and i think i can rock this T-shirt

    tour merch

    also this has to STOP!!!!

    there was def. a lot of weirdos and of course the stalkers were there… I’m a little concerned about how Adam made it out of there in one piece. People were lined up at every door and punching eachother to get near the tour bus D:.
    I know he was hiding.. I really don’t blame him

    That’s right glamberts, he doesn’t wear sunglasses at night and is all covered up during summer because he wants to, you just didn’t give him any other option because of your rude and obnoxious behaviour. show some respect and dignity and he’ll be happy to meet you. Is it really that hard to understand that the more reckless and desperate aprroaches to get to him you demonstrate, the more he’ll isolate himself from you? don’t you get it by now? it’s been a year!

    Awww… I wouldn’t have lasted as long as you did. I have pretty good will power, but I wouldn’t be able to stay away from this. Everyone has their breaking point. But I’m convinced you’ll love the show nonetheless.

  • luval

    Nobody was punching or pushing anyone to get near the tour buses. I was there. The crowd was very respectful. I’d be worried for an entertainer if they DIDN’T get crowds. As I said people cheered and thanked the crew and Adam for a great show. Neil was there too lugging equipment around. Funny.

  • St.Lucia

    These videos are great! Thank you!

    I’m watching this and I’m curious was there really only 14 songs? I know that may seem a lot to some, but I’ve never been to a concert that is THAT short for the main act! I’m used to a 20-22 song set with one or two encores!

    Adam puts on a great show but I would have been slightly disappointed at the short setlist for the amount of money a ticket would have cost.

  • Miss Chaos

    Judee, I agree with you about the stalkers and weirdos, they need to leave him alone. Just think over a year ago Adam could walk down the streets of LA and no one would even notice him or care. Now he needs 6 body guards to walk him to the bus. Gawd, I wonder if the trade off is worth it. I wonder tonite if he will change the song list, with the screaming for the encore, I think he threw Mad World in at last minute, or heads would have rolled lol, maybe when he’s a little more comfortable with the whole thing, he will do an even more over the top encore. IDK, just guessing.

  • tls62

    Am I weird? I really don’t feel the need to approach Adam. I’m not sure I’d say anything if I passed him on the street. It’s enough for me to know how he makes me feel. He sees us all in the audience, he knows how we feel. I’ll just show my love through my singing, dancing and cheering at his shows. :)

    I was happy to see Adam use his hand motions so much, in a lot of his songs last night, not just SW. :)

    I am a frugal person by nature. It was very, very hard for me but I really liked the eye shirt best and I didn’t want to regret my choice to save $15. So I bit the bullet. Oh well, at least the $ is going to Adam and not Ticketbastard.

    Me again. baebae, he didn’t have a scowl on his face that I noticed, but I looked to see if he were pretending to push some equipment. Couldn’t tell lol. I heard that earlier he ran away from some fans who wanted pictures. But it was all in fun.

    Adam’s emotions when he sings Sleepwalker are so striking. The pound of his fists in the air and arms up. I would definitely think it would be his next single.

    Saw a tee shirt on a burly guy that said “Adam Lambert is a real man”. Saw many home=made glam nation shirts.

    Met people from Canada, Virginia, all over Pennsylvania. Several were making a weekend out of Adam. Wilkes Barre last night, Atlantic City tonight and Fishkill NY Sunday.

    Two people that were not together (it’s amazing how Adam brings together strangers). told me that Adam changed their lives. One woman’s father died recently and she was in a state of depression until she found Adam and his music.

    The suspense before Adam came onstage was enormous. When the crew was setting up and they brought out the stairs, people cheered. Then when Adam appeared, I and others around me thought we were going to faint. I was sitting on the stage right side and when Adam came over singing, his eyes pierced the audience . (I know he looked at me heheh).

  • aislinn

    The moment in Whataya Want from Me, when Adam sings “but thanks for loving me, cuz you’re doing it perfectly” was so special last night – everyone was sending him love in that moment, and you could tell that he felt it.

    vmac:

    I understand that the Nokia is general admission standing, but in FAQ it was mentioned that there are 500 stationary seats for whoever gets there first. Does anyone know where in the theater that these seats might be?

    They’re at the back. When you enter, the stage is to your left, with a floor in front of it, down some stairs from the entrance. There’s a strip of floor at the level of the entrance and behind that the seats are arranged like in a theater, in a tier.

    Those prices for the t-shirts are nothing. I went to a Fleetwood Mac concert last year and was literally laughing out loud at the merch prices. My girlfriend that went with me couldn’t resist a $50 slim fit girlie one that was thinner than a Kleenex. I really don’t remember any of their shirts being under $50. The line to buy was a mile long.

    I was kind of hoping Adam would have at least one tie dyed t-shirt. Some retro looking stuff would have been cool.

  • smeggingnuts

    it is hard to tell but it does kinda look like it doesn’t it

    Re:shirt prices
    Those are pretty normal. I used to go to Ozfest every year and tshirts for no name openers started out around $40-$50 and go up to $120 for headliners. Just plain old shirts not jerseys or anything different

    Every single concert sells merchandise, even lesser known performers. It’s a huge market for them. I bet the likes of U2, Britney, esp. Bieber, gross double digit millions of dollars a year on shirts alone. It’s been a long time since I bought merchandise, but I’ve spent over $100 on merchandise at concerts. If sales are anything like last night, I’m guesstimating Adam could gross $5M for 70 concerts. I’m going to do my share and buy a horus shirt for my husband, another one for myself, and one for my sister. I only wish they had more black shirts.

    Anyone want to go get my groceries for me? I’m actually sick with a cold, didn’t even go out last night… so I was glad to have Adam entertain me. I’ll probably stay in tonight again. He has another show tonight, right? Anyone going to that one?

    I must say Adam’s performance last night was arena caliber. He can take that exact show, put it in the big arena, and he would be a smash hit. But then again, it’s mostly about his vocals. I have not heard a male sing like that. He is up there with the female divas.

  • luval

    One more thing. I think as time goes by on this tour and Adam tweaks things so to speak (although I thought it was perfect last night), we may see more Adommy and Adam “dancing”. I really think it depends on the venue, the city, the crowd they may get. WilkesBarre pa (no offense) seemed a very rural town to me. Several people wondered why he would open here versus New York or LA. It may be like a movie where they have a “soft” opening to judge the audience reaction, etc.

    ITA! I was thinking last night that this would fit into much larger venues quite seamlessly, and it would be nice to have large screens set up for the folks further back in the audience. I’m actually curious to see how it’s going to work in some of the smaller venues that are booked, like Toledo, with its 350 people max capacity.

    Off to pick up groceries, since no one has volunteered. Sigh. And maybe a quick nap to prepare for tonight’s performance. :)

    Alright I’m late to the party, just seen the vids, can’t add anything more than what’s already have been said, Adam was unbelievable! I really loved everything, Voodoo/DTRH/Rof medley, Aftermath, Fever, and Strut OMG I love the whole dark, jazzy vibe that they put into that number, the dancing, the masks, that was really nice. I have to agree this was very professionally put together. It’s something how after all that excitement, anticipation and expectations that I had after hearing Adam describing this, that it was even better than I could have imagined. How he just continue to surpass expectations is beyond me.

  • Organic

    Here’s a short article from someone who had interviewed fans after the concert:

    I have to agree this was very professionally put together.

    I was actually a little nervous about that, given the amount of time Adam spent traveling immediately before the tour started. It didn’t seem like there was a lot of time to prepare for this show, but man did they use that time productively! I’m still just blown away by how good the whole thing was. Considering it was the first night, I bet it’s just going to keep improving as the tour goes on – Adam seems to love to tweak things, and has an eye to details.

  • jammasta

    Why does Adam have to wear so much make-up? He looks like a clown.

    On a good note, that hat is pretty epic, and the hat + make up combo was actually not that bad. Made him look like the Mad Hatter. I usually hate OTT, but when he had that hat he BETTER have had a gigantic magic staff and shot it at the audience to captivate them. It would shoot mega blue lasers.

    What Adam song would fit such a spectacle?

    ….OMG. He made Soaked so epic. AGAIN. No Broken Open? That song is also epic but quite long. But SOAKED. Never fails to give me chills.

    I think his performance of Sure Fire Winners could have used more energy.

    He did sing Broken Open – parts of it were glorious, but Soaked was simply amazing. What that man can do with his voice is beyond extraordinary. It was just a shame that some girls felt they needed to fill in every dramatic pause in the music with their own shrill voices – they(and definitely I) could have enjoyed it more if they had let Adam sing uninterrupted. It may be my imagination(or my own frustration) but he looked a little frustrated too, as he turned away at the end of that number.

    I think if you look again at the vids MJ posted you will see it is 3rd from bottom. Quite good. I agree with you about SFW He seemed like he held back a bit. He usually does it more of a no holds barred manner. First night see what happens tonight. Still Glamtastic IMHO

    I’ve spent over $200 (non-scalper) for one ticket (and the seats weren’t even that great), for popular seasoned performers. IMO, Adam’s performance beat them. His set may not have been as elaborate, but the rest (vocals/charisma) beat them by a mile.

  • gangreen29

    Why does Adam have to wear so much make-up? He looks like a clown

    I like the way he looked last night. The top hat looks amazing lol. I much prefer this look to his emo look, last night he looked like a star.

    Aislinn- I totally agree about the shrill voices while he is singing- it’s like they want to get his attention while it’s all quite so he will make eye contact with them or something. HE IS NOT GOING TO SLEEP WITH YOU, so STFU and let us enjoy his damn voice!

    endrant. :)

  • Valentin432

    It’s very noticeable that he’s saving his voice on most of the uptempo numbers, when you compare to the AI or some of the tour performances.

    The beginning with the whole Alice in Wonderland feel and ROF is great.

    I loved Soaked and WWFM, BO is kind of boring and Aftermath sounds like a Daughtry song done by a high tenor (which it kind of is).

    Still love Music again and Strut seemed fun. I can’t understand the appeal of IIHY.

    Other than that, the show with lights, lasers, dancers, etc. seem like the highly produced stuff Adam has promised all along but it’s hard to translate on those videos.

    It’s the second post on the page I linked to. Look for the picture of kitten mittens

    Really loved your recap, kittensmittens. Every tour, especially brand-new, first time tours, can use a little tweaking in the beginning and I thought you made some excellent suggestions. Non-uberfans will notice if the set transitions drag (not saying you aren’t an unberfan, but those that aren’t will definitely notice). I also won’t be surprised if he changes his encore to something other than MW. It might have been easy to do now, because it’s so familiar and there are so many other tour details to contend with. He certainly changed the tempo so he did something different with it. But I have to believe after a year of singing it, he’d be happy to move on to something else. That would be kind of exciting if he made his encore sort of a wild card with different covers so the fans never know quite what to expect (WLL, MW, Crazy).

  • revcat

    I didn’t like his hat or that fringy furry jacket he had on when he first came out, way OTT IMHO. Liked his outfit without the first jacket and loved the second jacket. Not that it matters to Adam cuz he likes to dress up! And my little critique doesn’t amount to a grain of sand.

    As for the makeup, it’s stage makeup and it goes with his theme. He would look a little crazy if he wore it to Starbucks but on stage not so much. He is living out his fantasy and his fantasy included being free to dress up and entertain so he must be on cloud nine.

    Plus he’s friends with all of his crew which makes it even better.

    I probably wouldn’t buy a tee shirt but I think it’s great that so many people do; more money for Adam makes me happy. Ticket sales probably pay the cost of the tour but I doubt they cover much more than that if anything. Without merchandise to sell nobody on tour would make any money, would they?

    Love the videos from last night — still working my way through them. From the ones I seen so far, Adam sounded great and the costumes were cray (in a good way). The whole set looked very well put together.

    How was Allison received by the crowd?

    I’m so excited about this summer — our S8 babies (Kris, Adam, Alison, Danny) are all grown up and doing so well out there on their own!

    To me, it’s like toddlers pulling on mom’s shirt while she’s trying to talk on the phone – Mom, Mom, MOM, MOMMY! – you’re right, it’s not about Adam, it’s about THEM, they’re just trying to get Adam’s attention. I think they end up getting it, but probably not the way they want, unless negative attention is their thing.

    Valentin432

    Other than that, the show with lights, lasers, dancers, etc. seem like the highly produced stuff Adam has promised all along but it’s hard to translate on those videos.

    You’re right that you don’t get the full effect on the videos. It was such a package deal – the lasers, the images being shown on the backdrop, the dance moves, the band – all combined with the excellent singing and Adam’s charisma to make a really polished spectacle.

    ETA: Allison did a fantastic job, I thought. She really gave it her all, and her vocals were good. I thought the crowd treated her well, although they weren’t as enthusiastic for her as they were for Adam(of course). Couldn’t tell from up in the balcony if people were on their feet for all of her stuff, but I saw them up for some of it.

  • jammasta

    Yeah, I kinda like the Alice in Wonderland look of the hat and the make-up, but without the hat, he just looks weird IMO.

    Yeah, I know, I’ll have to get used to it, I did just find out he’s coming close by, and I would not mind seeing him live.

    I’d also probably be one of the few guys there so I can try to come up with some Adam-related pick up lines for the (un)lucky girls there.

    “Hey baby, I just wanted to tell you that If I Had You, that would be the only thing I’d ever need, and my life would be a party it’d be ecstasy. Hah, too bad for you I’m wearing an athletic cup and it can’t be Broken Open. Your loss. *Struts away*” I can skip the money fame and fortune line because I’m not famous. Yet.

  • Bowie1

    I come to this thread because it is an Adam thread to join in the celebration for Adam’s first solo tour and watch the great vids MJ posts. And I can really appreciate constructive criticism and critiques people post for discussion but I do not understand some people coming on an Adam thread and posting sarastic and derogatory comments towards Adam and his fans for no apparent ‘productive’ reason…just to tick them off. That is disappointing to me.

    So glad Adam has finally gotten some merchanise and fans can buy as much ‘kick-ass’ stuff as their hearts desire!!

    It’s not really about wanting to sleep with Adam. It’s standard operating procedure for teen girls at concerts. They start learning this technique early on in life at JoBro and Bieber concerts and they continue with it throughout their teen years.

    Although it is HIGHLY annoying, look at the bright side. There were lots of teen girls there screaming for Adam! It really is a good thing! :)

  • mr

    I seriously LOVED the make-up!
    I mean- nobody gives Johnny Depp any crap about the tons of make-up he uses in his movies, right, LOL!!!

    Besides, I thought it made him look extra-exquisite, and emphasized his facial features and especially his eyes.

    The only thing I’m not crazy about is his hair lately, but I don’t hate it either… and I guess it’s best for summer…

    Jammasta- good luck picking up girls at the Adam concert! I actually think it’s a good place for it! Adam has this affect on girls, you know ;-)

    Yes, Adam loves his jackets, doesn’t he? lol. But I’m concerned that he’s wearing too many layers up there. What is he going to do in the 100 degree heat in Vegas? I don’t want him to pass out. I think he needs to start shedding some items. Maybe they could use body paint and paint a jacket on him. lol.

  • luval

    Another little thing I thought of. When he was taking off his jacket once it was caught on one of his pendants! He laughed about it.

    I guess we know it’s not all layers now. The shirts are cut down except for sleeves, collar and a couple of buttons in front. Maybe that helps him to give the illusion of tons of layers. He’s said it himself…it’s all smoke and mirrors.

    I look at the videos today and the pics and honestly I did not see ANY of the background stuff. Nothing. So in summary…I did not see the band, did not see background…I literally only focused on Adam. I could not take my eyes off of him.

I “sometimes”get tired of all the constant cougar ranting, it’s refreshing to see and hear from people who are closer to his age. Just an opinion, so please don’t shoot me.

    I realize that everyone wants to hear Adam’s beautiful renditions, however, they also have to realize that it goes with the territory for these types of concerts.

    Nah won’t shoot but considering using this baseball bat to break a few bones…… :lol: J/K J/K I really agree with you though. It comes with the territory and it actually shows that he does appeal to the “ideal” demographic. I have read more times then I can count that he only gets more mature fans….well this shows he has fans from all generations and demographics (and now we have the video to prove it Ha ha ha )…..which bodes well for him in the eyes of sponsors and the powers that be and also PD at radio stations. (I personally don’t get it as I believe that anyone who is willing to spend their money on an artist should be considered the viable and desired demographic no matter what their age or gender) but its all good IMHO

    Brian makes it sound as though media reviews aren’t important and that’s completely false. I doubt RCA or Adam feel that way either. Positive buzz and reviews build excitement. They let the people who missed the tour know exactly what they missed and hopefully they’ll be future ticket buyers the next time around. Plus, good reviews and momentum might allow Adam to extend his tour, if that’s what he wants. I’m sure their reasoning for keeping out the media was exactly what they said: it gives them a breather to work out the kinks in the show.

    Don’t get me wrong – I’m thrilled for them to shriek to their heart’s content between songs, or even in response to appropriate places in upbeat songs, or the response to “thanks for loving me” in WWFM. The issue I have is when he’s trying to create a slow, dramatic moment with a quiet, beautiful song, and the girls are shrieking out “I love you Adam” or “take me home Adam” or just shrieking, right in the middle of a pause in the music. It’s like people who clap at the end of a movement in classical music – don’t break the mood! I was screaming for him as much as the next girl, at the ends of songs, just not when he’s trying to create a mood.

    One more thing. I think as time goes by on this tour and Adam tweaks things so to speak (although I thought it was perfect last night), we may see more Adommy and Adam “dancing”. I really think it depends on the venue, the city, the crowd they may get. WilkesBarre pa (no offense) seemed a very rural town to me. Several people wondered why he would open here versus New York or LA. It may be like a movie where they have a “soft” opening to judge the audience reaction, etc.

    I was wondering if one reason they started there was because they got there a few days early to finish rehearsing etc and maybe the venue was just cheaper to rent for a few days? When I heard how early the equipment was shipped out and that everyone got there on Tuesday, I wondered if they were renting a rehearsal space or actually setting up in the venue (venue would need to be available for the days before the concert). I never really thought about this stuff before but can you imagine if they waited to unpack and set up for the first time on Friday and found that something important didn’t get packed. Ha ha.

    Thanks everyone for the video’s etc what a great show. Can’t wait to see him in Balt and DC.

  • marmom07

    My one complaint are those who scream when Adam is trying to talk to the audience. That makes me crazy. YMMV. Just. So. Rude. No one wants to hear you when he’s trying to tell the audience something that matters to him.

    I don’t like the screaming in the quiet, slow songs either. Yeah I know there will always be people who do that stuff. Just my little rant. I don’t care about the fans that wait outside wanting to meet him or follow him all over the world etc. It’s their time and money. If it makes them happy then more power to them. As long as they are respectful.

    Unfortunately, tweens and teens never do what we want them to do! LOL They are the definition of egocentric and they are often times innappropriate, especially in group situations.

    Put them at an Adam concert and they lose their minds! :)

    Like I said, this is typical tween/teen behavior at concerts. I’m afraid we may be stuck with the screaming all summer. I’m just glad they are there and are losing it right along with the adults! :)

    Having watched the opening medley again just now, I just have to say that may have been conceptual and thematic (and I’m sure it was), but it also was such a sweet, sweet gift from Adam to his fans. VooDoo, DTRH, and RoF are all very much his fan favorites. What a thoughtful surprise!

    Thanks Adam. :-)

    Just told my mom about that day, she wants to go. Wonder if we should sit together and discuss the concert or if I should go use my game (or lack thereof) on the women near my age (I’m 20) with not too invasive pick up lines (for example, my pick up line with Down The Rabbit Hole would’ve just gotten me punched in the face).

    Such a great song… and he can show range without blowing out his voice… I have wanted this since Idol ended!

    The…THE most perfect singer has the great oppertunity to sing these great songs and make them his own… because of Idol.. even though people remake classics all the time these days… hell I was shocked to find out how many songs I grew up loving were remakes.. tons would suprise you.

    I will no doubt catch every show that I can, which I would not do to listen to the debut album songs.. over and over… I’d catch one or two, but many now.

    and Sleepwalker rules… WWFM, too.. and Sure Fire, but I love RING OF FIRE!

    Shut up “Tiger”

    ??? You are going to need to explain this one to me. lol

    What do I have to do with your post? Just wondering. I went back and looked at every post I posted up to this point last night- and I didn’t post anything about the selection of songs. I love all the songs you listed, also! Sorry- just confused. :(

  • adamisthemanfan

    Awesome! TY to the person who shot the videos and to MJ for providing this space!!
    Overall I would say the show was a success, despite a couple of glitches (one during BO and the other during IIHY) but vocally, Adam was perfect! Not one bum note :)))
    I think lowering the key on on a few songs was a very savvy decision…I think he will be able to get through the 70 shows without a problem…
    The medley in the beginning is really cool and I Floved Ring of Fire! He should have sung more of it imo…
    I do think he should 86 MW though and do another cover we havent heard…I would have loved for him to do CLYG but that song is prob the most vocally strenuous so it would be vocal suicide to include that, although it would make a great encore…
    overall I like the structure of the show (the dancers have improved a lot :)) I think he looks swell, but I think he needs a good tailor to fix that one costume lol
    I was pleasantly surprised w how good Aftermath sounded…that song has a great message so I understand why he wanted to do it acoustically…
    the band interlude was very nice :)
    I hope they film some of the shows and release a DVD…Im thinking maybe when he performs in NYC since hes doing two shows there it should be recorded…the yt vids are great but sound-wise they dont quite do the performance justice…
    I have to agree that the random screaming is annoying but it happens in every concert (sigh) you cant tape ppls mouths shut…thats another reason why they should do a professional recording, they can edit out the screams during songs as well as when Adam is talking to the audience
    looking forward to seeing more videos :)

  • BestAI

    Fact is tweens, teens, 20 somethings scream at concerts. The younger, the louder. At one of the AI concerts, a few 20 something girls were screaming for Adam. They were noticeably loud. Just for comparison, I screamed too. I asked my husband if he heard me. He said no. I asked if he could hear the girls who were next to me. He said, something to the effect of duh. At the barricades, one girl started crying hysterically when Adam came out.

    Scream and cry — that’s what they do. It’s annoying, but when I was a teen, I did the same.

    LOL – I guess it comes from growing up with brothers. My older brother and his friends threatened my life if I did that “dumb girl shrieking thing” when I went to a concert with them, and I learned quickly not to do that, even as a tween/teen :)

  • luval

    Couple of thoughts:

    I loved the flip-floppy Adam hair. It’s so sexy.
    Tommy’s hair didn’t look quite so curly on stage. We were all giggling because it looked like humidity hair…more frizz than curl, and all over the place. Maybe he forgot his flat iron.
    As far as Mad World, generally people around me were thrilled. Most do not go on forums or follow Adam around the world, so they thought it was the first time outside of Idol that he sang this!
    btw..I screamed, yelled and jumped up and down ( in the appropriate places of course) and I’m no tween!

    ah of course “hat hair” Well then I guess we will just have to deal with the sexy, fallin’ down hair cause I love the top hat. I didn’t even notice the “A” on it till someone else mentioned it.

    I just don’t have enough superlatives to convey how cool his show is (and that’s just from watching the video’s) So just “WOW” for now, he knocked it out of the park!! While I love his falsetto and high notes, I’m really liking his lower voice as well. Just beautiful. All my fingers and toes crossed that he doesn’t have any vocal issues on this tour. I thought it was really smart of him to work with vocal coach. It would be a major crime if he accidentally does any permanent damage to his voice.

    While I crushed on David Cassidy back in the day….I’ve never been so drawn to, or fascinated by, or just unf by a performer/person like I am with Adam.

    Tommy’s hair was styled in a soft cool curl..prob got frizzy as the show went on. Color treated hair will def do that, I know. I really like it, but he needs the flat iron to really seal his hair cuticles so they don’t frizz on him…(know a few hairstylists really well, sorry).

    IMHO, if the little (and I mean little) bit that I saw that could use a tweak is all they got….bring on the media. They should report on what a great show it was for the first run of a national tour for a new rising star…this is how you do it!!!!!

  • luval

    RL is overrated.

    Anway, marmom07 ..I’m pretty sure they rehearsed in the theater. I walked in the lobby for a minute and could hear the rehearsal. I was there until the lady said “what can I do for you”?

    I just noticed the sparkley A on the back of his vest too!..so coordinated…top hat and vest.

    Someone mentioned a vocal coach he had..when was this? any link. I’m always interested in stuff like this. thanks

    Any livestream for tonight?

    Me Too, any livestream for tonite?? I have to watch it. And I loved last nites Fever. Its my favorite on the album, but never have liked it live. It was different last nite, I really liked it. So spent all day watching videos, and so ready for concert tonite, hope we can watch it.

  • koshka

    LaurelG thanks for posting that info. I was wondering where they were today. :)

  • Planet Fierce

    Well, I have been in and out today and saved “Soaked” until just now…absolutely the best performance of that song todate…just a stunning vocal. Also, I don’t think the audience was too bad on that; they seemed to time it in the right places. I mean after all, his fans know the songs and they know what’s coming from lyric to lyric…I am not a tweenie, but had I been there, at the very least I would have been swooning in a few places.

    He says it in his blog post on VH1 posted here: http://blog.vh1.com/2010-06-04/posted-adam-lambert-talks-about-his-inspiration-for-the-glam-nation-tour/

    From Adams blog post:

    When putting together the set list, the flow was a priority. From a technical angle, I knew I’d be performing in roughly 70 cities over the summer! Many of my songs are VERY vocally strenuous. So I worked w/a vocal coach to get the keys right and to make sure I’d be able to give the audience my best voice each night. Artistically, I wanted to tell a story with my songs.

    I’m gonna be at my BFF’s house tonight,so I *might* have wi-fi for tonight…:D
    I wonder if Michelle (I forget her last name-Collins? From vh1 or something? The one that said she wants to have Adam’s babies…) is gonna be there.She would f$&king love it.

    Gawd,I’m still speechless from the videos…:)

  • lorenzo

    Tiger, just playin’… but every single time I post (on others threads, too) about him singing some of the great songs on Idol you always…ALWAYS say (para phrase) that you just want the new stuff.. but that stuff is not even in the league/park…universe as Ring of Fire, Feeling good..etc and those songs are old enough to make his own and he blew the worlds mind when he performed them.. He is my all time favorite singer by a mile, but I really don’t like several of the new songs.. I like them..not love, but they’re sung so average, and I expect so much more from Adam with that talent… while he still has the pipes…use them!

  • aislinn

    Also, I don’t think the audience was too bad on that; they seemed to time it in the right places. I mean after all, his fans know the songs and they know what’s coming from lyric to lyric…

    The quiet places of a song are as much a part of the song as the sung portions

    I am not a tweenie, but had I been there, at the very least I would have been swooning in a few places.

    You’re not going to Foxwoods, are you? :p

    but they’re sung so average, and I expect so much more from Adam with that talent… while he still has the pipes…use them!

    He won’t have the pipes through the end of this concert series, if he were to try to sing like he did on Idol all the time. Those performances lasted 90 seconds, once a week. That’s a bit different than singing that way for a full concert, multiple times a week. And really, he doesn’t need to – I love the way he changes up the interpretations of his new songs each time he sings them live. Not always reaching for the upper octave doesn’t prevent the songs from still being exciting.

  • dante

    Just got home and am watching the videos – wow – perfection – so fun to see him living his dream – he must be SO HAPPY that he can have fun with his costumes, makeup and glitter and we all love it along with him.

    And part of the fun of being a fan: we know he is going to change it up and we will get different looks and vocals.

    You are paraphrasing me incorrectly. I never said that I “only wanted the new stuff”. In past threads, you asked if I wouldn’t trade a set full of songs from AI and trade them for a set of mostly Adam’s songs off his album. I stated that I would not- I would prefer to hear Adam’s own songs. I love his songs off of his album and I enjoy hearing him sing them live. I also stated that I enjoy and love to hear a couple of covers during his concerts.

    You then said that was BS. I then asked you not to refer to my opinions or preferences as BS.

    My preference is to have Adam sing the songs off of his debut album. Like I said before, I have enjoyed having a couple of covers in his 14 song sets in the past and I would like to hear A COUPLE on the Glam Nation tour as well. It looks like that is how the GN song set has turned out and I am more than happy with that.

    It’s okay if you would prefer to hear a set filled with songs from the old AI days- I just have different preferences.

    Just finished watching the videos, thanks for posting them guys.

    I love the whole concept behind the tour, dark, cozy, a bit circus-like and absolutely glam (well, it’s the Glamnation tour, right? Duh!).

    I wonder if any of the tour merchandise is gonna be available on his official site, because if it eventually is and they ship internationally, I’m sooo getting a pair of those gloves!

    I just started a new thread for tonight’s concert.

  • mmm222

    I was at the show last night and drove the 4 hours home today. I couldn’t wait to watch the videos. The show was PHENOMENAL! Don’t worry about the videos spoiling the experience for you. Adam’s voice and performance were fantastic as expected. But the dramatic effects of the lighting, the lasers, and the background images are what really made this show incredible. You have to be there surrounded by Adam’s voice with lasers shooting over your head and the crowd going crazy to really appreciate the full impact of what Adam created.

    A few other random comments.. The dancers were used sparingly and appropriately, and added a lot to the show. The crowd, at least on the ground floor where I was, was standing and rocking out for Adam’s whole set. The guys were just as crazy as the women. For the most part, the very enthusiastic crowd was respectfully quiet during the acoustic songs. The acoustic Aftermath was gorgeous, much nicer than the version on his CD. The scene at the buses was very low key, mostly fans standing around chatting while they waited. Tommy and Longineau had their pictures taken with some fans. And last but not least…Adam looked gorgeous. His costumes enhanced the dramatic effects. His bare feet were an amusing and pleasant surprise.

  • tls62

    So was the iPhone case that somebody posted yesterday real or not? It was the Lee Cherry pic. It obviously wasn’t on the merch table. I thought it looked cool and would def buy one for my iTouch.

    I’m still feeling sads for kitten. Being shot down by AFL has to hurt. That’s okay kitten….he’ll come a crawlin’ back one of these nights. lol. :)

  • lorenzo

    aislinn…

    I’ve played rock music my whole life (guitarist) and I’ve played with and have seen many Rock singers that don’t know crap about their craft who learn to SCREAM their faces off every night… and they do over 200….200!! shows a year, he doesn’t “scream..etc” a fraction of what they do.. Sebasitan Bach who sang in Skid Row did that every single night.. and the dude doesn’t know a thing…zero zilch about music theory… he sang Broadway and of course had the part where he screamed his face off eight shows a week! NEVER had a problem… Mike Majetic (wrong spelling on last name) from Steelheart anothere “rock singer” check out some live tv clips his notes are off the chart… never a problem…NEVER…etc

    Sebastian has this sick crazy exercise that he does that really gets his voice back… he lives right where Adam’s playing tonight.. maybe Adam can get a throat torture lesson :) the guy doesn’t sing the “trained” way, but he knows how to keep his voice. Adam could do three or four glory notes a night where these guys did 10 plus.. another is Michael Sweet from Stryper…same thang. all beautiful voices, none trained..and all can hit CRAZY notes..

    Adam has SO much more control it’s not even funny.. so it can be done, he’s way to ‘paranoid” about that.

  • Truthiness

    Adam’s make-up and I haven’t always gotten along, but I actually liked his make-up here. It was interesting, well done, and I thought flattering to him, it’s it’s meant to be OTT way. But then I’m a sucker for bindi’s, an I liked his.

    Not completely sold on the first outfit, I like the jacket minus the fringe, but like the top hat and fur thing on the jacket. I do dig the whole Mat Hatter Alice in Wonderland feeling of the music, visuals and his clothes. And I like the rest of his outfits, dig the coats and the pants

    I’m still not totally sold on the hair though, but I’m becoming more reconciled to it. At least it isn’t that Elvis shellaced look, I don’t like that.

    As for the music, it was good, Adam was in good voice and ROF!!!! and he sounded so purty on it. Soaked also sounded very purty, loved how it was just him and the keyboard, but even despite that, it’s still not a great song for me beyond my admiring how purty he did the vocals. It just remains too…clean. I can’t explain it. But good job vocall on the song. And from what I could hear, on all of them. You can tell that yes, he is doing some conserving, which is smart, but not too much. And I liked that with the acoustic version of Aftermath with less of those harder wails, and done acoustically, I do like the song more.

    I do like SureFireWinners a lot, though I agree with someone who said it wasn’t as high of energy. And I don’t care if anyone agrees with me, I like Strut, and I think it was fun here, and the dancers added to it, so that was cool.

    The best thing about IIHY are his introductions to the song, and his band and dancers. Awwww, he loves his dancers, how cute. I will say they were MUCH better here, and so was Adam with his dancing, than I have heretofore seen. So maybe it will just get even better as the tour progresses. One would think so.

    So I think a good start to his tour. Good job. And happy for all those that went and had fun.

  • tls62

    Adam has SO much more control it’s not even funny.. so it can be done, he’s way to ‘paranoid” about that.

    Or maybe way to “smart” to risk it.

  • lorenzo

    tls.. so he’s gonna do the whole tour with half the emotion or I hate to say half assed :)? Please..don’t take this the wrong way… I’m just sayin’.

    BS.. you give it all you got. like many before you have.

  • tls62

    That’s your opinion Lorenzo…..one I do not agree with. I personally have never seen Adam half ass anything.

  • lorenzo

    Yep back at ya tls… Compare his vocals.

    The guy’s the best.. but there are a lot of times that he really holds back (on the vocals) he does put 100% in the visual stuff, but if you think he puts the same effort in his vocals you’re tone deaf..no offense, and I know it’s coming out rude and I don’t want to be.. so I’ll zip it. Just enjoy whatever.

    Reminder:

    Please dial it back.

    Disagree, but with respect, please!

  • weareallinnocent

    Adam has SO much more control it’s not even funny.. so it can be done, he’s way to ‘paranoid” about that.

    Or, just paranoid enough. This is his livelihood, his instrument, it’s irreplaceable, and he’s just at the beginning. For him, it’s not about just rocker screams and yells, he sings many songs totally in head voice and/or falsetto. He can’t risk damage to that delicate instrument that he’s developed to do that.

    I think the difference between Adam and those you cite is exactly as stated — theirs weren’t trained voices, and his is. But, as always, opinions are opinions, and everyone has them.

    Add me to the column of those who don’t believe Adam’s half-assing anything. In fact, write me down for believing he doesn’t even know how. :-)

  • lorenzo

    Look at the reaction to the different vocals he does… People FLIP over Upright, Zodiac…Idol etc..
    They don’t show anything to his stuff like… any of the studio stuff he did before..NONE of it like “Take one” and that other stuff he did. You guys I’m such a huge Adam fan, and I respect MJ’s words.. so I’m done.
    but while I’m here… he doesn’t have to SCREAM the whole song.. just do his thang on the parts..

  • tiger92

    Add me to the column of those who don’t believe Adam’s half-assing anything. In fact, write me down for believing he doesn’t even know how.

    I would have to agree with this 100%. Adam is a perfectionist- we have seen that time and again. I don’t think he could even “half-ass” a performance if he tried to.

  • cwm

    lorenzo– Like you, I love it when he does his thang. I get what you’re saying. But you may find that Adam may start pushing the envelope more as he gets more of a feel of what his vocal chords can tolerate night after night after night. In his blog post on VH1, he referred to many of his songs as “VERY vocally strenuous” and I believe him on that, so it is smart for him to pace himself somewhat at the very front end of the tour. Last thing he wants at this stage of the game is to blow out his voice.

  • cwm

    I’m sure everyone has probably moved to the new thread by now, but I just wanted to thank lorismile, luval, kittensmittens, aislinn, and mmm222 for the recaps from last night’s show. It’s was great to hear your fantastic reports!

  • aislinn

    I went to youtube to listen to your examples – if you want to use someone as an example of singing like Adam does, but on JCS, check out Steve Balsamo. Sebastian does exactly what you say – he screams his face off. That’s using the vocal cords in a completely different way from projecting something out on pitch, using a pharyngeal voice. If you listen to Sebastian over time, you can hear the gradual decline in his vocal quality. He can’t hit the notes anymore, and at least one of the examples of him singing in JCS is really quite awful – it sure sounds to me like he’s done damage to those cords. Your example of the guy from Steelheart is closer to Adam’s vocal technique, but I’d be curious if he really does still sound today like he did in 1990. The other thing is, it’s not just the notes you sing, but the combination – what comes immediately before and after, how long you have to sustain the note. All of that has an impact on how easy or difficult it is to achieve. If Adam wants to not only be able to belt out notes like he did on Born to be Wild, but also be able to sing the glorious pianissimo notes he sings in something like Soaked or Broken Open, then he’s better off following the vocal techniques he’s been taught, and paying attention to how his throat feels.
