  1. ADAM!!

    hehe WOOT WOOT!!! I never count when I comment this early on a post *does little dance*

  2. I couldn’t be more excited for the NOLA performance if I was there myself!!!! Here is hoping for an epic night for all!!!!

  3. koshka
    haha no I wasn’t waiting I just was peeking in and saw the new thread…haha I wonder if people have waited…like why isn’t anyone else posting..are they all waiting to be Allison ;)

  4. smeggs: Good eye. Yeah that is the shirt from FS! WOW, whatta picture.

    matt

    sorry milw’s multiple postings from the same people don’t count….your Gokey
    So LibraRising your Allison :)

  6. smeggs: Good eye.

    I would like to say that it was because I was just watching them to make mp3’s but thats not why I knew…lol #pathetic

  7. Oh, so, just because I’m from Milw I’m that G*key dude. Shit.

    That shirt must have been from his own closet. BB does tend to be thrifty with his wardrobe. And, BTW, wonder how old that pic is? No ear or nip piercings, research reveals. And, BTW he is not fat here by any means, but so much skinnier now. At my M&G my hand was around his waist, and very skinny. I think I had a rib in my hands!!

  8. smeggs: Okay, I have to admit I held off posting ’cause smeggs, not only did I get Gokeyed twice, but you took such pleasure in it that I wasn’t having it again!! But then you had to post that damn picture!!!!

  9. LOL you guys are killing me with the order of things, particularly you, Gokey! :-)

    This should be a fantastic night. Kill it, Adam!!

  10. I really would love mardi gras colors in his hair tonight…just sayin…sigh

  11. I couldn’t be more excited for the NOLA performance if I was there myself!!!! Here is hoping for an epic night for all!!!!

    ME TOO!!

  12. That picture is fracking killing me. Must. Have. Another. Meet. And. Greet.

    Off to pimp and whore myself on the fan site for a M&G. Who would sell theirs? Nobody. That’s who. But, Imma gonna try.

  13. This is the show I would have loved to have seen. I’ve been a lot of places but not NOLA and I’ve been meaning to go for a long time. Work’s too busy, alas or as we say now, fuck me. :smile:

  14. milwlovesadam:

    At my M&G I think I had a rib in my hands!!

    Please don’t tell me you were EATING when you met Adam! :lol:

    Oh! Did I leave out a few words from that quote? ;-)

  15. Ron – very funny!

    Isn’t there some story about “Adam’s rib?”

  16. Off to pimp and whore myself on the fan site for a M&G. Who would sell theirs? Nobody. That’s who. But, Imma gonna try.

    While you at it can you whore yourself out for one for me as well?

  17. Ron
    ROFLMAO…..though if only that worked I would be laughing my ass off more and my thighs and waist and arms…..

    Ooo, yeah! I left you a message on the other thread. :) Didn’t realize you were all here already.

  19. I am ashamed to say I am watching the VMA’s. I can’t help it. I am 19 and, I am weak when it comes to MTV. I won’t enjoy it though :)

  20. Looks like they are looking at Twitter? Trying to think clean here, but failing. The guy in the black shirt is the one Adam kissed later.

  21. Ashley
    lol watch whatever you want..I’m not boycotting it…not watching it since I don’t have a TV but I am not boycotting it hehehehe

  22. VMA’s, I say, crap to the VMA’s. Not gonna watch, they dissed our boy. Hope Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Pink, or Gaga give Adam a shout out tonight.

  23. Off to pimp and whore myself on the fan site for a M&G. Who would sell theirs? Nobody. That’s who. But, Imma gonna try.

    You never know- Someone was trying to trade their extra m&g for a seat in the first 5 rows the other day…

  24. nzglambert007 LOL Adam Lambert is breaking the Ticket Direct website!!!!!!!

    haha has been know to happen

  25. milwlovesadam:

    VMA’s, I say, crap to the VMA’s. Not gonna watch

    Besides, we have to watch True Blood. Season finale tonight.

  26. I’m a really excited about NOLA… This concert better be epic.

  27. zorabet Guy in army uniform going in for mg&g. amazing.

    Not gonna happen. When it comes to “business”, these artists behave very well. MTV told them what to say and when.

  29. Thanks god for DVR. I’m gonna watch VMA tomorrow at my own pace.

  30. Oksana 2000 –

    I don’t want to be Tatiana..:-(

    You can be Megan….that’s not too shabby at all.

  31. “Not gonna happen. When it comes to “business”, these artists behave very well. MTV told them what to say and when.”
    Well..there is still Kanye..heheh

  32. I can’t help it. I was just as mad as everyone else when he was not nominated but, I always watch. They NORMALLY don’t nominate the right people in my opinion. I think Adam’s time will come. I mean, with this whole sold-out tour thing he has going on right now, who has time for silly award shows? haha. Think about he positive, if he was there, most likely he would be interacting with Ke$ha. NO ONE wants that. haha.

    smeggs: Do you know if Suz is there tonight??

    I have no clue she has been a sneaky ninja lately lol

  34. Yes, True Blood tonight and Hung and Mad Men. Thank god for DVR.

    Has anybody ordered that CD/DVD off Amazon? What is it? Why don’t I see it at AO?

  35. Besides, we have to watch True Blood. Season finale tonight.

    My parents are watching that in a few. I am going to watch it later. They wanted me to watch it with them but, it is so awkward watching that with them. haha. If you can imagine.

  36. LibraRising:
    09/12/2010 at 8:13 pm
    smeggs: Do you know if Suz is there tonight??

    Yes, she is. She mentioned it on twitter.

  37. Looking at the names on Twitter list there is a lot of potential DH’rs

  38. Ashley, you are so funny. I just hope Ke$ha doesn’t get that #5 option. Would break too many hearts. The skankometer would break too.

  39. Ashley:
    09/12/2010 at 8:17 pm

    My parents are watching that in a few. I am going to watch it later. They wanted me to watch it with them but, it is so awkward watching that with them. haha. If you can imagine.

    lol Ashley. Sure not a show you want to watch with your parents.

  40. I am trying to convince Suz she can go to Puyallup so I don’t have to record the show

  41. I just hope Ke$ha doesn’t get that #5 option. Would break too many hearts. The skankometer would break too.

    NEW JOB: Person to keep Adam sober around Ke$ha so #5 never happens with her. :) haha (or person to keep him away from her period.)

    lol Ashley. Sure not a show you want to watch with your parents.

    Defiantly not. lol
    I learned that the hard way.

  42. milwlovesadam:
    09/12/2010 at 8:17 pm
    Thank god for DVR.

    I never record anymore. If I don’t watch it when it airs, I end up not watching at all. But it’ll be done before Adam comes on.

  43. Lorismile I have an alternative DH for tonight who doesn’t mind if you embed it up top check your DM’s

  44. NEW JOB: Person to keep Adam sober around Ke$ha so #5 never happens with her. haha (or person to keep him away from her period.)

    I would gladly volunteer for that position.

  45. I would gladly volunteer for that position.

    All yours :)
    I am sure you will have plenty of help. haha.

  46. I wonder if Adam got to any of the Voodoo stores on Bourbon Street today. Know he had a beignet at Cafe Du Monde, saw his twitpic. Hope he had some chicory coffee. It’s so good. Show should be fantastic tonight.

  47. clearone, you are just the right person for that job. Although, in close proximity, I think even you may trip into the glitz!! :)

  48. I just hope Ke$ha doesn’t get that #5 option. Would break too many hearts. The skankometer would break too.

    I think I might be on the other side on this one. I would think it would be much better if it is someone he is ‘connected’ to (he obviously likes her and he has called her a ‘true friend’). Then maybe he will like it!

  49. Oh my Smeggs, you are the queen. RL interferes, I lose touch with my obsession for a while, then you post a picture of his beautiful shirt and I’m a drooling fangirl again. I love it.

    OMG … do I have to tell you that I’m the exact same way! I recorded “Vampire Diaries” last Monday – great cliffhanger last year – couldn’t wait for the new Season to begin – and I haven’t watched it yet. :-)

  51. lorismile:
    09/12/2010 at 8:30 pm
    thanks for the DH smeggs. The one I had may be for audio only.

    That one in an MJ’er so if glamfans get pissy at you for posting it tell them that I talked to the DH’er and they gave permission to do it.

  52. O.M.G. On a whim, I contacted one of the Seriously Professional Glamberts to see if I could buy a M&G. Not a good idea, ***slaps own face***hangs head in shame*** EGAD

  53. baebae:
    09/12/2010 at 7:50 pm

    She doesn’t seem very intelligent in interviews. Do we know how she got there and what kind of marks she achieved?

    Hi, baebae! As I remember the article, she was an honor student in the IB program. IB is a high school program modeled after European studies, I was an IB French teacher, it is a rigorous wholistic program, quite selective. (Not individual classes like AP classes). If you don’t do well, you are removed, so she must have done well. She didn’t graduate, though, she decided to leave school and pursue a music career. And that is about what I know.

  54. OMG … do I have to tell you that I’m the exact same way! I recorded “Vampire Diaries” last Monday – great cliffhanger last year – couldn’t wait for the new Season to begin – and I haven’t watched it yet.

    You haven’t watched it yet? Ron, you must watch it! It is sooooooo good! I get it on Thursday here though.

  55. if glamfans get pissy at you for posting it tell them that I talked to the DH’er and they gave permission to do it.

    Ohhhh power trip…I like it!

  56. I absolutely have to watch True Blood ASAP. But, Mad Men and Hung can wait until I have time. Real life is very busy this week. Days and nights too.

  57. clearone:
    09/12/2010 at 8:35 pm

    You haven’t watched it yet? Ron, you must watch it!

    I know clearone! It doesn’t make any sense but I feel the same way baebae does. It’s on Monday here so I’ll watch it just before tomorrow’s episode. That’ll work.

  58. Ohhhh power trip…I like it!

    haha well they sent out an email with the info after I sent you a DM. And there is no point in them yelling at you. Might as well keep their hostility to one person.

    I mean what they do is awesome for the fans and all I am not trying to be all bitter at them….but….ack I’ll shut up this is just sounding worse and worse

  59. Oksana2000:
    09/12/2010 at 8:26 pm
    baebae,VMA starts at 9 EST, and Adam comes on when? At 11?

    I’m talking about True Blood and it’s on at 9 p.m. At least here it is. I’m sure Adam won’t be on before 10. These are Eastern times.

  60. Ron:
    09/12/2010 at 8:31 pm
    OMG … do I have to tell you that I’m the exact same way! I recorded “Vampire Diaries” last Monday – great cliffhanger last year – couldn’t wait for the new Season to begin – and I haven’t watched it yet.

    And why is it that I can watch a show while it airs straight through, but a recorded program I have to pause every few minutes to do something?

  61. I know clearone! It doesn’t make any sense but I feel the same way baebae does. It’s on Monday here so I’ll watch it just before tomorrow’s episode. That’ll work.

    Just so long as you do! It is an excellent episode. What station do you watch it on?

  62. Adam is in Central time tonight right? True Blood is 8PM central. Adam usually comes on after 9PM central, closer to 9:30 even

  63. baebae, the earliest Adam will be on is 10:30 Eastern time. But I’m DVR’ing VMA anyway, so I.DON’T.CARE… :-)

  64. Thanks, Kradamour. But then, there are different ways to get good marks. {snicker}

  65. clearone

    What station do you watch it on?

    I watch “VD” in high definition on HWPIX channel 570. (Didn’t know that off the top of my head – looked it up). :-)

  66. Now we need picture of Drake..it should take about 5 seconds in Twitterworld… :o)

  67. baebae:
    09/12/2010 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks, Kradamour. But then, there are different ways to get good marks. {snicker}

    chuckle…
    Until the final year of the program, when the exams are sent off to other countries for grading. My students’ exams went to Indonesia and Kenya, for ex.
    But…of course she didn’t finish that final year, did she? :)

  68. Ke$ha is wearing a freaking garbage bag. A real freaking TRASH bag. I rest my case.

  69. I just realized why Sony is releasing “Fever” in NZ. It is their summer song. Ha!

  70. I watch “VD” in high definition on HWPIX channel 570. (Didn’t know that off the top of my head – looked it up).

    Oh, I don’t get that one……..guess I’ll need to wait until Thursday!

  71. milwlovesadam:
    09/12/2010 at 8:45 pm
    Adam is in Central time tonight right? True Blood is 8PM central. Adam usually comes on after 9PM central, closer to 9:30 even

    That’s when Alli starts at 8. It says above that she started at 7? So he might be on at 8:30 which would be smack in the middle of True Blood. Hope he’s late today. :)

  72. Ashley, are you watching red carpet?

    Yep, sorry.
    I guess I should have specified.

  73. and apparently multiple sightings of Drake

    awwwww. I know he’s not anyone’s favorite but I loved how excited he was when Adam made the top 2 and he was hugging Adam’s mom and yelling and everything.

  74. But…of course she didn’t do that last year, did she?

    Haha! I rest my case. :)

  75. Ke$ha is wearing a freaking garbage bag. A real freaking TRASH bag. I rest my case.

    In high school my freshman year, all the freshman had to wear trash bags one day during spirit week. So she’s not original. We were.

  76. Does anyone know if you can “unfriend” someone on the fansite? Just met my first and hopefully last nasty fan. Maybe I should just call groundcontrol.

  77. MTVUK @KESHASUXX is on the carpet talking about her three nominations. Apparently Best Artist will be incredible for her! #vma

    What is incredible is that she was even nominated for Best Artist..but her sales are big…and she is one of the only 10 (I think) female artists to have 4 top tens off their debut album…*sigh* Adam doesn’t stand a chance at the awards show this year :'(

  78. Drake sightings. Good. Adam keeps his friends and lovers close. Good quality in a person.

  79. In high school my freshman year, all the freshman had to wear trash bags one day during spirit week. So she’s not original. We were.

    :) It actually did not look as bad as I was expecting but, her hair was this LONG braid looking thing. Gross. I do however love Lady GaGa’s crazy outfits. haha.

    Go to your page and at the bottem right corner go to manage your friends. Then find that person and hit the delete button on the right side of their name

  82. Thanks smeggs. I just did it. Those Seriously Professional Glamberts are not to be messed with. Lesson learned. ***shakes head**

  83. Oh that Drake. I was thinking that the rapper was there. :lol:

    LOL – I was thinking the same thing and wondering how he could be in 2 places at once since he is on the VMA’s.

  84. Off to True Blood. Back later. Hope Adam gets to see it soon too. He loves this show.

  85. Clear_Liqueur Interview with @adamlambert in today’s Singapore paper, Life! section. Wants to get a Maserati and the movie rumor http://twitpic.com/2nxd27

    But I can’t read it….need clearer picture

  86. Those Seriously Professional Glamberts are not to be messed with. Lesson learned. ***shakes head**

    when did we stop calling them BSC?

  87. Oh that Drake. I was thinking that the rapper was there.

    I have no idea who this Drake rapper is..LOL

  88. I’m surprised there are no pictures of Drake yet. Wonder if it’s really him.

  89. lorismile:
    09/12/2010 at 9:19 pm
    I’m surprised there are no pictures of Drake yet. Wonder if it’s really him.

    lorismile, I’m surprised too. When it comes to taking picture people are not that subtle..

  90. VIP Packages available for U.S., Canadian, and International events are only available to U.S., Canadian, and International residents.

    Just saw this on the fansite. Okay, U.S., Canadian, and International only. So doesn’t that cover EVERYONE? Why say “only”?! Who is left?

    Oh, right. Intergalactic residents of Planet Fierce. Duh.

  91. Why would Adam want to be around Kesh’s period?

    Ba-dum-chhhh. thank you ladies I’ll be here all week.

    You just had to go there didn’t you? haha.
    I have a way with wording things wrong on this blog for some reason….lol

  92. 09/12/2010 at 9:19 pm
    I’m surprised there are no pictures of Drake yet. Wonder if it’s really him.

    lorismile, I’m surprised too. When it comes to taking picture people are not that subtle..

    Yes that is surprising. Have they said if he’s wearing a tank shirt? That would be a clue. :)

  93. Didn’t she say that the hat/fringe would be on her car antenna? So cool! :)

  94. Okay, U.S., Canadian, and International only. So doesn’t that cover EVERYONE? Why say “only”?!

    I think they mean..US can only get them for US. Intl only for Intl. Canada only for Canadian dates.

    That’s my guess anyway.

  95. cctexasgirl Asked Drake if they were coming to the after party at OZ and he said yes.

    Is OZ a bar? I’m confused.

  96. I’m curious. The fansite repeats multiple times that the VIP M&G is not transferable, but some peeps have in fact given a M&G to someone else.
    So is it not enforced? For those of you who have been to a M&G, were you checked against an ID after obtaining the package?

  97. Kardashian introducing Fetus. High quality entertainment at its best.

  98. OZ is a gay bar- fans have planned a large party there after the show

  99. Summer:
    09/12/2010 at 9:29 pm (Edit)
    OZ is a gay bar- fans have planned a large party there after the show

    Ahhh.. Thanks Summer and HI!!! Nice to see you!!! you’re a lovely person! :-)

  100. Kradamour, the person who bought the m&g has to pick it up at wilcall, but then can give the pass to someone else after they pick it up.

  101. I think they mean..US can only get them for US. Intl only for Intl. Canada only for Canadian dates.

    That’s my guess anyway.

    That makes sense, lorismile. But my lawyer brain hurts from the lack of clarity…:)

  102. just realized Adam has tomorrow off so he can party hard tonight! Great city for it too!

  103. clearone:
    09/12/2010 at 9:24 pm
    Yes that is surprising. Have they said if he’s wearing a tank shirt? That would be a clue. :)

    Is this proof enough? lol

    monalee62 Drake is wearing a sleeveless tee….

  104. I didn’t even think that he might have a different outfit for tonight. Maybe a mask for …something….

  105. haha a sleeveless tee- guess he dressed up for the occasion!! Wonder if he is the one with his phone # on the sign!

  106. Is this proof enough? lol

    monalee62 Drake is wearing a sleeveless tee….

    I’d say! At least he has upgraded from a tank! :)

  107. Hi Lori! thanks! Will you be seeing the UK shows with your Lambrit friends?

  108. Will you be seeing the UK shows with your Lambrit friends?

    No….it’s Thanksgiving week. I’d be taken away in a straight jacket if I bailed on the family Thanksgiving to go see Adam. LOL

    I’m thinking about a jingle ball though. he said he had some radio shows in NYC in Dec. If so, I’ll probably go to that.

  109. Smeggs, remember the pictures that were taken while we were waiting in Portland? Were they ever posted or e-mailed and, if so, could you e-mail me a copy? Starhart and CWM, did you ever post or e-mail yours? I would love to see them!

  110. I like the idea of getting into the NOLA spirit, but I hope BB doesn’t cover up his beautiful face :!:

  111. luv_life_u_live Omg but the nest part was that there was a soldier in uniform in line for the mNg and he was so nervous! They give them free tix and passes!

    AWWWWWWWWWW

  112. Hi Mieps– I mailed those pics out quite a while ago, shortly after our show. You were probably still on your trip. Check your email inbox from a few weeks ago, and if they’re not there lemme know and I’ll resend!

    I’m thinking about a jingle ball though. he said he had some radio shows in NYC in Dec. If so, I’ll probably go to that.

    Jingle balls? Doesn’t that suggest he’ll definitely be releasing a new single?

    Thanks for working the thread tonight Lorismile.

  114. Doesn’t that suggest he’ll definitely be releasing a new single?

    Thanks for working the thread tonight Lorismile.

    I hope so. I really would like to see SW as a single.

    YW for the thread.

  115. Thank you, Lorismile, for the work you’re putting in providing tonight’s thread. I’ve been away most of the past week dealing with RL, but I, along with all of us, I’m sure, have been eagerly anticipating tonight’s performance in my favorite place in the whole world (or at least the small part of the world I’ve actually seen — LOL), New Orleans! So happy there’s a dh tonight and having it be so clear is the powdered sugar on the beignet!

  116. Ha!

    I like that!

    LOVE IT!!!

    If you can’t be there, AL Lurker, I am glad that you are here with us :)

  119. Lorismile, I’m following you on twitter under a different name. I don’t know whether you recongnize it – The Lindsay etc.

    Please DM me if you have the time.

  120. Booo, at the loss of DH. Now I’m stuck with fr000king Taylor Swift at the VMAs… How sad is that… (P.S. She sux. Song sounds just like last year’s only slowed down and boring…zzzzz….)

    At least Gaga’s won two so far. Small consolation.

  121. baebae? Did we watch “True Blood” together “live”? :-) Loved it and loved the ending! Wish I was a fairy. Oh, wait … ;-)

    Lorismile, me too please…

    What’s your twitter name?

  123. Lorismile, just sent you a new menu for dinner if you need one.

    I don’t know what this means lol
    I have an alternate if you need one

    If you can’t be there, AL Lurker, I am glad that you are here with us :)

    Merci kradamour! Yes, it does make for a nice evening and I don’t need to leave the comfort of my own home! Glad to be here!

    baebae? Did we watch “True Blood” together “live”? Loved it and loved the ending! Wish I was a fairy. Oh, wait …

    lol No fun when you take the words out of my mouth. :D

    No, I’m listening now. The DH is referred to as “dinner” sometimes too. ;-)

  127. Well, I know I haven’t been here in a while because real life is….well, real life – sorta. But tonight I feel like a stranger in a strange land.

    Sorry the live stream got busted. That I understand. :smile:

  128. Only if you’re in the dinner club, Ron.

    Wait, I’m pretty sure you’re in it.

  129. lorismile:
    09/12/2010 at 10:21 pm

    I can’t wait to see suz’s vids from the show…

    I agree! It looks to be a wild one, with the masks and shaman scepter and all.

  130. Lorismile, can you email me please (DH):
    mlg_0621 at yahoo.com
    Thank you

  131. Hi Sunsister!

    Why do you feel like a stranger in a strange land??

    SunSister:
    09/12/2010 at 10:22 pm

    Only if you’re in the dinner club, Ron.

    Wait, I’m pretty sure you’re in it.

    I don’t think an invitation arrived for this club …

    TerranceDlibra Cause its voo doooooooo its like Halloween up in here. I love it! http://twitpic.com/2nxwb6

    Terrance getting a twitter was the best thing to happen to us or, at least to me it is. lol

  133. Now I know how the folks felt that didn’t know what DH meant back when. :sad:

    But I’m a quick learner, so I’ll lurk until it all clears up. “Don’t give up on me… I won’t let you down”

  134. SunSister:
    09/12/2010 at 10:30 pm

    Now I know how the folks felt that didn’t know what DH meant back when. :sad:

    Now I know what you mean. I’m in the dark too. But, it’s kinda nice being in the dark with you, though. ;-)

  135. Now I know what you mean. I’m in the dark too. But, it’s kinda nice being in the dark with you, though. ;-)

    Now you’re talking. :mrgreen:

    Lorismile – I swear I’m not being flip, but why can’t you just share the DH here. That’s what we used to do, and that’s what they did with the earlier one?

  136. He sounds really good tonight. Can’t wait to see vids without static.

  137. thanks baebae….trying to get the DH info out to everyone.

    Saw you had your hands full. You’re welcome. :)

  138. Lorismile – I swear I’m not being flip, but why can’t you just share the DH here. That’s what we used to do, and that’s what they did with the earlier one?

    Because they think us posting it here is why they are getting removed. They screamed at Smeggs about it once.

  139. OIC. Sorry if I’ve made you mad.

    No, you didn’t make me mad.

    I need to create an email distribution list or something. Would make it easier but I’m not sure how many more threads there are left. :-(

  140. Lorismile

    I emailed you but, really, it’s okay. You have a lot on your hands and the show is almost over.

  141. Just like You Tube gets searched for IIHY to yank it, and that’s why people use different names for the song now, it’s possible for unlocked adam friendly communities like this one to be searched for info that can then be used to shut down live entertainment. Doesn’t mean this was the source of the problem earlier, but it is vulnerable.

  142. This is a whole OT thing, but I visited my parents over the weekend and had my mom, who knows who Adam is only from me and various things she’s spotted in newspapers and magazines, alone in my car for over an hour. Of course, Adam just happened to be on my CD player (I don’t think that CD has changed more than once or twice in the past year, to be honest). She started messing around with it, and Adam started playing. After the first couple of songs, she asked if it was Adam (she said there’s just something about his voice that she just knew it was him)and commented how good he was. She then said that he was like our generation’s Barbara Streisand — not in the type of songs he sings, but in the amazing range and unique quality of his voice. She absolutely adores Barbara, so this was the highest compliment she could give. She liked WWFM the most, SFW the least (this is a lady who loves country and Celtic music, so SFW was a little too techno for her tastes, I think). It was just kind of fun getting this unbiased opinion, although from the reading she had done about him (basically just because she knew how interested I am in him), she already really liked his personality and thought the whole “scandal” after his AMA performance was ridiculous.

  143. She absolutely adores Barbara, so this was the highest compliment she could give.

    Teri, it’s so nice when people stop and listen, and realize how glorious his voice really is. Hurray for your mom!

    eta: and Tommy coming out in a pink boa! I love how playful he is :)

  144. WOW … all kinds of vocal acrobatics at the end of TCB! Looking forward to the video!

    I know…he was on FIRE tonight.

  145. lorismile – thanks so much for your patience and amazing multi-tasking to our requests. The twittering was quite colorful tonight to say the least. Adam really was on fire. Cannot wait to get up tomorrow morning and see the vids. Like a kid on Christmas eve!

  146. Oh, how I wish I was in NOLA and going to OZ. Goatie and Adamisgodxxx will be there. So many goodies in NOLA tonight.

    True Blood was great. So many twisted and funny moments!!! Hope Adam can see it soon.

  147. Ron, it’s too bad you missed some of it. He did a lot of new vocal runs in a lot of the songs. Great stuff!

  148. eta: and Tommy coming out in a pink boa! I love how playful he is :)

    I do, too! I think it’s awesome that he exudes fun glam and complements Adam so well, not only in physical appearance, but also with his own positive energy and quiet charisma. Adam did a great job picking out his band members. While I’ll miss Longineu, I can’t wait to hear and “get to know” the new drummer.

  149. Oh sure, I go to two shows last weekend, and he goes bendy backward tonight!! Can’t wait for the vids!! Adamisgodxxx was right up front too! Lucky B*tch!!

  150. Ron:

    TLKC

    Do you plan on going to the Adam fan’s dinner on Oct. 9th?

    Ron: I already accepted for the both of us.

  151. Jammasta, TCB is 20th Century Boy. A newer encore song he sings, usually in place of WLL but I think at least once he sang both of them.

  152. aislinn:
    09/12/2010 at 11:02 pm
    Not just vocal acrobatics! LOL

    Right!

    Merrycello On his knees and backbend writhing at end!

  153. No, you didn’t make me mad.

    I need to create an email distribution list or something. Would make it easier but I’m not sure how many more threads there are left.

    Hi,
    It’s really the only safe way to do it. It does get leaked from here
    unfortnately. Right out in the open with password and all.
    It means so much to international fans that have ZERO
    chance of ever seeing a show.
    Just a suggestion.

  154. Adam did a great job picking out his band members. While I’ll miss Longineu, I can’t wait to hear and “get to know” the new drummer.

    I agree Teri. Since Adam is so into the whole astrology thing, I made note of the fact that the new guy is a Virgo – another pragmatic earth element to add to Cam’s. Longineu was air or water(can’t remember)so that’ll contribute to a changed dynamic.

  155. Teri63

    She then said that he was like our generation’s Barbara Streisand — not in the type of songs he sings, but in the amazing range and unique quality of his voice. She absolutely adores Barbara, so this was the highest compliment she could give.

    Pssst – it’s BARBRA. ;-) To me, it IS the highest compliment to compare Adam to Barbra. She has been my favourite since I first heard her on the radio when I was 10 years old. That must be a good 15 years ago now. ;-) I wish there were TV specials like the one’s Babra did back then that Adam could do now! “My Name Is Adam”. “Color Me Adam”. They both work for me. :-)

  156. It’s really the only safe way to do it. It does get leaked from here
    unfortnately. Right out in the open with password and all.

    We posted it tonight because the streamer gave us permission to do so.

    Besides, this isn’t the only place it gets leaked from. Just sayin’

  157. He sounded amazing tonight. A great concert. I’m especially happy for Soberba who travelled so far. I hope all the Mj’ers conncected and that they are off having the time of their lives at OZ.

    They had better deliver full recaps tomorrow.

    Ron are you okay about the 9th?

  158. So, I gave in and caught the end of the VMA’s . Good for Gaga. Hate autotune shit. Don’t get it. Boo for Kanye. Yeah for Cher.

    OK Ron, if you’re not gonna bite on my “Liza with a Z ” reference, then I’m off to bed.

  159. milwlovesadam:
    09/12/2010 at 11:11 pm

    Ron, or, on another note, “Adam with an A”, get it?

    It’s Adam with an A not Adam with Z ’cause Adam with a Z goes … got it. :-)

  160. Ron, looks like we crossed streams. Just caught Liza with a Z on cable. Recorded it. Wasn’t that amazing in it’s time? Adam could really do one just like that.

  161. TLKC:
    09/12/2010 at 11:14 pm

    Ron are you okay about the 9th?

    Hahaha … You accepted for both of us without asking me and NOW you want to know if it’s okay? :lol:

    Of course it is! I’m looking forward to being there with you and meeting all the other members.

  162. People bitching about the DH? Seriously. You need to CHILL. We had permission to post tonight’s DH. So we did it.

  163. So, I gave in and caught the end of the VMA’s . Good for Gaga. Hate autotune shit. Don’t get it. Boo for Kanye. Yeah for Cher.

    Mils, I saw Cher years ago and she got caught lip synching in the worst way- the lip synch track started before she was ready, so she started ‘singing’ while still talking to the audience. So then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, they stopped the track to start over again, but I guess she didn’t get the memo cos she was silently synching into the mic while they rewound the track. Really embarassing for her and the audience!

  164. We posted it tonight because the streamer is from MJs and gave us permission to do so.

    Besides, this isn’t the only place it gets leaked from. Just sayin’

    My Mistake then. Twitter adds to leaks as well.

  165. OOooops — Thanks for the correction, Ron. I guess I did misspell Barbra! My mom wouldn’t be happy, and I should be ashamed after she allowed Adam to bask alongside her in her iconic glow and all, LOL! I grew up hearing Barbra playing on my mom’s stereo (one of those old, wooden console units — YIKES, I’M OLD!), and although I was into classic rock most of my life, I certainly appreciated that she had an amazing, unparalleled talent. I was a huge Billy Joel fan, but I remember loving her version of his song, “New York State of Mind.” I was so thrilled that she was singing his song, and I listened over and over and over.

  166. Summer, at least she was amazing tonight!

    I feel like my eardrums are spoiled by Adam. I just can’t listen to a lot of today’s stuff. Too autotuned, too non-vocal. I need a real voice. That’s one of the reasons I like Gaga. She can sang for real.

    To bed. Hope to catch good vid of TCB before work. That Twitvid just whetted my appetite.

  167. milwlovesadam:
    09/12/2010 at 11:19 pm

    Ron, looks like we crossed streams.

    We were like two spawning trouts weren’t we but that’s okay, though. ;-)

  168. Since Adam is so into the whole astrology thing, I made note of the fact that the new guy is a Virgo – another pragmatic earth element to add to Cam’s. Longineu was air or water(can’t remember)so that’ll contribute to a changed dynamic.

    That’s really cool — thanks for sharing your research, aislinn! It will be fun to see how the chemistry shifts, but, since Adam is so positive and is drawn to positive people, I’m sure it’ll all remain upbeat and chock full o’ positive energy.

  169. Cher: in her day, she was as exciting as GaGa. So fearless! I loved seeing them on stage together tonight. And Cher, too, can really sang. Even now, I’d put her voice against most of the young’uns.

    G’nite! enjoyed the company!

  170. Ron, that’s a helluva visual you just created for me!! I’d rather picture Adam floor mopping in my dreams. How does he do that and still belt it out? I am beginning to think he might really be an alien after all. Maybe he’s from where Sookie went! Maybe he’s really part Fae! He is very sweet and irresistible too! Hmmmm….

  171. Ron: well I was trying to be pro-active. Also, I had/have every intention of going down to get you, if necessary. It is so great to spend an evening talking non-stop about Adam – as everyone here knows – and you will love it. If you have any doubts, ask Hugh.

    And it won’t conflict with a concert because Adam will be performing in the Orient. And we can do a recap (I can hear baebae saying yarrrrghh! right now. Oh no, she’s gone to bed. Let’s keep it from her until the evil day.)

  172. I saw Cher live back in the day. She was incredible.

    Looks like Suz is out so it may be a while before we get vids.

  173. I have a 9:00am appointment so I have to go to bed. G’night Ron – I’ll keep you posted on TIFF.
    Thanks lorismile for tonight’s thread. Thank-you to everyone for the witty repartee. TLKC with a T.

    :shock: I had no idea we’d become THAT close! :oops:

    :lol: See you Oct. 9th … if not before! Talk to you soon. Just Kidding, of course!

  175. Meips
    I will send u what pictures I have I don’t have much but will send them…hope I can find ur email..lol

  176. anthrogeekPF OK, guys, back at the room, uploading vids to a queue, then we’re hittin’ the town!!

  177. This was a very special night in NOLA for MJer’s. I’m not forgetting every one that was there tonight but … ADAMLAND and SOBERBA come to mind now.

    Adamland returned to her hometown and it’s been 15 years since she’s been there.

    Soberba traveled so far, took 3 planes to get to New Orleans and it’s her first time in the United States and first time seeing Adam.

    It just touches my heart and I’m very happy for them and everyone else that was there tonight.

  178. Sorry guys…I’m still here. I’m just working while I wait for vids.

  179. Ron:
    09/12/2010 at 11:08 pm
    … like the one’s Babra did back then that Adam could do now! “My Name Is Adam”. “Color Me Adam”. They both work for me. :-)

    Pssst – it’s BARBRA. ;-)

  180. I agree Ron– what a fantastic show for everyone. And I’m so happy for the MJers who were there — especially Soberba who traveled so far and adamland for whom this trip means so much! And of course all the other MJers too who are having a rockin’ good time I’m sure. I’m jealous!

    I do have my own good news, though. My daughter and I just finished working out the details and we have committed to going to Puyallup! Next up: buying tickets. Smeggs– here we come!! Anybody else from here going to Puyallup??

    lorismile– thanks so much for working the thread tonight. You did a wonderful job– that DH really kept you hopping! You were a wonderful and gracious hostess. :-) Can’t wait for those videos!

  181. AL Lurker:
    09/13/2010 at 12:11 am
    the one’s Babra did back then that Adam could do now

    Pssst – it’s BARBRA. ;-)

    I guess I should practice what I preach! Thank you so much for pointing out my error. You, you … toaster oven … you. :-) Sorry to use such harsh language but you provoked me. ;-)

  182. Ron, any helpful hints? It’s been 25 years since I’ve been in a gay bar and never had to deal with that back then.

    LucyJ629 What’s the proper etiquette if at a gay bar and the boy in his underwear on the bar dances in front of you and comes and taps me on the …

  183. rach_eva They’re showing Shake Your Body from Idol in a gay bar on Bourbon St. Lol, @dannygokey in a gay bar. I thought I’d seen everything.

    OMFG….I’m laughing so hard right now!

  184. Looks like Adam has taken over NO. Theater, buses, bars…and so many from here to take it all in.

    Pic from goatiegarden:

    I think AdamisGodXXX is with her too. I can’t wait to read the recaps tomorrow or whenever they manage to put a coherent sentence together. ;-)

  185. TCB is up

    Omg that kiss

    I’m too busy posting to watch it! LOL

    Looks like Adam has taken over NO. Theater, buses, bars…and so many from here to take it all in.

    Awesome isn’t it!

    I can’t wait for their recaps too!

  186. Haha if you watch at about 2:30 on the Fever video you can see AdamisGodXXX’s glowstick with hat being waved in the air lol

  187. I don’t buy Adam making digs at Drake tonight. It doesn’t seem like something he would do. JMO

    (reading twitter feed)

  188. Hey smeggs! Are you still here? I’m looking at StubHub for Puyallup, and I see tickets in Section D (infield, center) row 7!! Only $46! Wanna upgrade and sit with my daughter and me??? I’ll also send you a message through ALF, but I wanted to make sure I got your attention tonight before I purchase. :-)

    Ron, any helpful hints? It’s been 25 years since I’ve been in a gay bar and never had to deal with that back then.

    How did you ever get the impression that I’m gay? I don’t know how to answer your question as I’ve never been to a gay bar either in all of my 25 years on this earth. (OW! It hurts when my nose grows 10 inches. Don’t make me lie again!) ;-)

  190. Cwm omg totally!!

    smeggs— YESSSSSSSS!

    Just to be clear, so I should take that as a YES and purchase a ticket(s) for you? How many?? :-D

    Cwm, I’ve been thinking about going too more and more – because it’s the last show. I know I can combine a business trip and fly down Tuesday and return Wednesday. Would it be a problem to join you and your gang? I would need to figure out how to get there from Seattle since I won’t have a car but that could be resolved later.

  193. When you read the twits back and forth between the people talking about Drake, it’s pretty clear that they are just imagining a “fanfic” thing (that they HOPE Adam kisses Tommy, that Drake sees them, etc. etc.) Nothing real.

  194. CWm yes that is a yes..sorry my phone wasn’t being nice I had to throw it across the room

  195. AL LURKER

    Glad it was only your nose! :mrgreen:

    The 10 inches was just a metaphor. :-)

  196. OMG AL Lurker– that would be awesome!!! I can buy tickets for you now too! How many would you need? Just 1? More than that?

    I haven’t heard yet from smeggs how many she needs. SMEGGS — How many tix for you??

    Last time I checked 30 mins ago, I could buy up to 7 tickets in Section D Row 7. I’ll need 2 of them.

  197. freyja528 These ppl are insane! I feel kinda sorry for the guy. He cant go out with his frinds without ppl mobbing him

    The price of fame…. It will only get worse the more popular he gets.

  198. Cwm, I’ve been thinking about going too more and more – because it’s the last show. I know I can combine a business trip and fly down Tuesday and return Wednesday. Would it be a problem to join you and your gang?

    If I can be so bold to answer … of course it wouldn’t be a problem! You go for it, my friend!

  199. AL Lurker and Smeggs– DONE!! YESSSSS! I can’t believe that I get to go to one more Glam Nation show– and even better I get to enjoy it with you two! Row 7!

    AL Lurker — trust me, you’re gonna love hanging out with smeggs. She’s awesome. :-) And I’m really looking forward to meeting you!

    Can you tell I’m excited?? :-D

    It’s always polite to ask first! ;) Thanks for the support Ron. I had thought that the concert was on a weekend for some reason. At least now, I can combine business with pleasure. I had to go to Seattle sometime this month anyway! Funny how things work out when it comes to Adam! And I can expense it too!

    Thanks so much cwm! I was thinking of a way to make it all work but never quite could. I had pushed the notion of attending an actual GlamNation concert aside.

    Me too!!! well, I just flew in today but I could fly out too. Maybe we could borrow Baebae’s broom.

  207. Well, Ron, you know we would welcome you with open arms if you could make it. :-)

    AL Lurker– Ok, smeggs and I have each other’s email addresses. Smeggs, how about if you send an email to both AL Lurker and me, and that will get the ball rolling. Woooo Hoooo!! I love that this came together so serendipitously!

    Thanks everyone else, for putting up with reading through our hastily and publicly arranged Glam Nation adventure. :-)

  208. lorismile:
    I wanna fly out!

    Me too!!!

    Haha well, if anyone else wants to join us, I could still buy the other 3 seats in the same row! Lemme know — seriously!

    lorismile and weelassie– whataya think? :-)

  209. So I have to say Monte’s mohawk was awesome tonight :D and LP’s hair/wig was too

  210. Music Again is up.

    Would love to cwm but I need to pass.

    You’re a very kind and thoughtful person to say this to me and I appreciate it very much. Thank you. Hopefully … someday.

  212. CWM,
    goodness would I like to, however, my parents are coming for a visit. first time in a long time. should be an adventure~

  213. Awww shucks, thanks smeggs and Ron for your kind words. :-)

    Whew, just made it through some of the videos. That was awesome. I just sat here smiling and shaking my head in disbelief watching Adam’s performances tonight.

  214. cwm,
    funny you should say that about the smiling and shaking your head, I’m doing the same. loved all the runs at the end of STMNBN. sitting here with a dumb smile on my face.

  215. Well, unfortunately Oz lost out on getting Adam for the party. I just got back from there. Oz had been advertising this as an Adam afterparty for a month, organized with fans, then at the last minute the bar across the street swooped in and nabbed Adam for exclusive M&G (I assume a paid appearance) instead. Adam and the band spent at least a couple of hours in that upstairs bar (barricaded with VIP wristbands required for access). I don’t know how people got the VIP access, but it appeared to be largely people who knew people, and a few random pretty boys. The three punk looking guys Adam called up to the stage during IIHY got in. People were observing politely for the most part from behind the barricades, then a couple of BSC idiots started harrassing people in the M&G, so security was notified and they cleared everyone away.

    Drake was at the M&G, Adam talked to him for quite a long time. They seemed to be quite friendly. Saw Tommy sitting on a sofa for a long time snugly fit between two of the three guys who were called up to the stage. Neil looked like his usual mood, Taylor was there, Sasha, don’t believe I saw Monte but imagine he was there at least for a while.

    The show itself was awesome as always.

  216. Thanks for the report, ewflyer! I’m glad to hear that Adam and Drake are getting a chance to catch up.

    Twitter reports of Adam out on the dance floor dancing with fans to WWFM remix. Sounds like fun! Too bad about no appearance at the OZ, though.

    Merrycello OMG wwfm dance party w Adam on the fucking dance floor. I am dead.

    Chica63 Adam. trapped. Corner. Dance. Club. corner. WRONG!!!!!!!

    ravengirl57 We danced with Adam! Life is complete.

    Merrycello Holy Fuck I was just dancing a foot from Adam to wwfm remix!!

    terrib90 Just danced with AFL!!!

    ETA: Wait! We have a report from adamland that maybe Adam did go to OZ after all.

    lindsav @DallasGlitters So Adam goes to Oz at 2:10am!

  217. Anthrogeek posted TCB — different view, including being able to see Adam drop to the floor.

    LucyJ629 so we went to Oz and Adam was dancine on the dance floor with everyone…gettin us all riled up while IIHY was playing

    LucyJ629 Major crowd

    LucyJ629 so then he went to the balcony and was encouraging us from up there

    LucyJ629 waving his arms and being so damn cute

    LucyJ629 He did some other stuff….. ;X Then he went to the private room where he spent the rest of the night

    LucyJ629 Anyways, it was really fun and Adam was gorgeous! Just glad he went upstairs to get away from the flash bulbs and people all over him!

    And then there’s these… hahaha

    Shadow_505 Adam rolled out of Oz completely wasted. OY..LOL

    vic_righthand Drunk adam is adorable adam!

    Mitla96 Bar Adam is very different from M&G Adam

    Awwww, this is sweet — she’s referring to Adam, according to other tweets that confirmed it:

    rach_eva Okay, so he was leaving & I said his name & he looked at me & I reached out my hand to him & he grabbed it and said, “did you have a good time baby?” and I kinda reached toward him and we exchanged kisses on the cheek. And basically he’s perfect and I love life.

    ETA: ok, I’m officially post-hoing now. Off to bed! Sounds like it was an epic night for Adam and his fans. What a blast it must have been. Can’t wait for the recaps from the MJers there. :-D

  219. Adam deserved to go out and have a good time after the show he put on last night!!!

  220. Well, unfortunately Oz lost out on getting Adam for the party. I just got back from there. Oz had been advertising this as an Adam afterparty for a month, organized with fans, then at the last minute the bar across the street swooped in and nabbed Adam for exclusive M&G (I assume a paid appearance) instead.

    I think it’s kind of funny. Why would people assume Adam would go to a fan organized party? I would think it’s the one place he would avoid. LOL

  221. Just curious, where exactly are these two bars in NOLA? Are they in the quarter? Been to NOLA a few times, so wanted to get a mental pic on location.

  222. CWM –

    I do have my own good news, though. My daughter and I just finished working out the details and we have committed to going to Puyallup! Next up: buying tickets. Smeggs– here we come!! Anybody else from here going to Puyallup??

    Was it you a few nights ago who was discussing whether you should pull your daughter out of school for the last 2 classes and drive like mad women to get to the show or was this someone else?

  223. I usually just lurk (though enjoy the comments here immensely) but the sheer awesomeness of last night’s TCB has compelled me out of hiding to say “WAY TO GO ADAM!”

  224. Hey guys! On the way home from New Orleans! Adam did show up are OZ about 220am. Regular dance party. I couldn’t hang though. He showed up about 5 mins after I went back to the hotel. And OZ was not a fan party. The club threw it.

  225. cwm:
    09/13/2010 at 4:55 am
    ok, I’m officially post-hoing now.

    Wow, you sure can dig up the dirt! Are you a reporter by profession, perchance? :)

    I think it’s kind of funny. Why would people assume Adam would go to a fan organized party?

    But he did end up going. And even danced with fans.

    ETA: Oh, there’s Jae’s report saying that he came later.

  226. Good morning!
    It’s official. I saved 2 hours of my life by not watching MVA last night. I watched it this morning fast forwarding most of the time.What a piece of crap!

  227. But he did end up going. And even danced with fans.

    He’s a very brave soul! Although what a great thing for the fans who were there!!

    I wasn’t insulting anyone with my “why would he go” comment. I’ve seen, first hand, how crazy some of his fans can get. That’s all I meant by it.

  228. ewflyer and Jae– I’m sorry to hear that you missed Adam at OZ. That must be frustrating to know that he showed up right after you left! ewflyer– I was hoping that you were seeing the tweets about Adam showing up to OZ right after you posted here. Darn!

    baebae:
    Wow, you sure can dig up the dirt! Are you a reporter by profession, perchance?

    I was having fun watching the show’s twitter list. Everytime I’d tell myself it was time to go to bed, another fun set of tweets would roll in. I couldn’t tear myself away. LOL

  229. koshka:
    Was it you a few nights ago who was discussing whether you should pull your daughter out of school for the last 2 classes and drive like mad women to get to the show or was this someone else?

    Yep that was me! We decided to go for it! :-)

    But smeggs and AL Lurker, I just got a cancellation notice on those tickets I ordered last night because the seller can’t deliver. :-( Dang. I’ll keep working on getting good tickets for all 4 of us. I’m afraid it will cost us more than $46, though. Smeggs, could you send both AL Lurker and me an email so that we can work it out over email rather than here? Thanks.

  230. Yep that was me! We decided to go for it!

    I am sooooooooo glad. Back when you posted this I missed the convo and since then its sort of stuck in my head a little bit. I know it seems crazy, but these are what memories are made of, this is what your daughter will remember decades later. How her mom pulled her out of school and took her on a wild adventure.

    When I was growing up, my parents where the very hard working responsible types, to the nth degree. Work at home vacations and you never missed school unless you were on your death bed. LOL One afternoon when I was in grade school my dad picked me up from school and drove me 40 min to west hollywood to see a small re-release of Snow White (back before there were even VHS tapes). I will ALWAYS remember that day, not the movie at all. It was the out of character adventure we had together in the big city. That was special.

  231. Good morning all! I hope someone got a picture of Adam during Voodoo last night, standing at the top of the stairs, holding that incredible staff, with the full moon in the background. OMG!!! I’ve got the video paused in another window and just keep looking at it. Perhaps someone already posted that picture and I just missed it. Fingers crossed!!!

  232. CWM it was a little frustrating. But only a bit. We knew that the chances of him coming out were pretty high. I saw the tweets and nearly headed back to OZ but had already taken my make up and party clothes off. Lol. I am glad he got to have some fun and that some of the fans got to party a bit with him. It really capped a Fab NOLA adventure.

  233. smeggs and AL Lurker– I just ordered new tickets and sent smeggs an email about it.

    And koshka– thanks for your supportive message. I decided that we only live once, and that this would be a great adventure for my daughter and me. My husband is supportive — he gave us the obligatory eye roll but then laughed. Haha He agrees that we’ll have a ball together and that it will be good for us. :-)

  234. Voodoo last night, standing at the top of the stairs, holding that incredible staff, with the full moon in the background. OMG!!! I’ve got the video paused in another window and just keep looking at it.

    I would LOVE a picture of this also. It’s a great shot!!

  235. Jae– looking forward to your recap when you’re up to it! Last night sounded like it must have been insanely fun.

  236. Have fun in Puyallup cwm, smeggs and AL Lurker! I am so tempted to make the trip – I have a free airline ticket and relatives in Seattle … I’m afraid after 4 shows, my husband wouldn’t be able to muster a good-natured eye roll, lol.

    Hoping you guys can help me locate some pics of HRG. My sister couldn’t believe how hot and sexy he was at Winstar, so I’ve decided to share a few of the best pictures with her. I flove the “purple” pic Ron posted a few shows ago. That’ll be the beautiful one. Does anyone know how to find the “adorkable” one of Adam wearing the baggy shorts and gladiator sandals at his sound check? I love that picture but didn’t save it! And, I’d like to send her one of the best hot pics. Suggestions anyone?

  237. OMG! I’m just getting around to watching the vids from last night – I didn’t know they wore masks!!! That is so cool! LP’s was hilarious, lol. God, I knew I should’ve gone to that show – it had “special” written all over it :)

  238. You guys realize there is only 6 more GN shows Statees side left :( where the hell did the summer go???

  239. smeggs: I was looking at the list earlier today, two GA, three FL and your Puyallup show. Seems like only yesterday the tour was starting on June 4th and we had all those concerts to look forward to and now only six left. I wish someone could tell me “where the hell did the summer go?” — I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun!!!!

  240. smeggingnuts:

    Now us internationals will have him in our paws a little– BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    :-P

  241. I agree with you guys….how did 71 shows fly by so quickly! I still look forward to each show like it is a brand new one at each GN stop.

    Now us internationals will have him in our paws a little

    Yes, I can’t wait for BB to come to KL M’sia in October, got my tickets already! :)

  242. cwm:
    09/13/2010 at 10:52 am

    smeggs and AL Lurker– I just ordered new tickets and sent smeggs an email about it.

    cwm, you had a late night and are up early again! Thanks for getting those tickets. I saw the earlier post and just had this blank stare on my face. And then saw this one – good thing I continued to read! :)
    I look forward to meeting you, your daughter and smeggs. Just a week of sleepless nights in antici……….pation!

    It seems Adam gave quite a few fans a very special NO night! He’s just a guy who can sing his face off! and happens to bring people from all over the world together.

    Now to watch a few videos since RL took over last night preventing me from doing so.

  243. LibraRising- my German is not very good (ok- non-existent, lol), but I’ll go look that up, cause it sounds cool, hehehe…

  244. ewflyer and Jae– I’m sorry to hear that you missed Adam at OZ. That must be frustrating to know that he showed up right after you left! ewflyer– I was hoping that you were seeing the tweets about Adam showing up to OZ right after you posted here. Darn!

    I think it’s probably for the best that things worked out as they did, to be honest. Going to step back from all this for a while. Hope you guys enjoy the rest of the tour!

  245. Looked it up- and- BINGO!! HAHAHAHA!!

    Naaaa- just kidding- I’m mainly happy for myself that I’ll FINALLY get to see GLAMNATION that so many of you have seen multiple times! I’m not happy for your “misfortune” of “losing” him (temporarily!!!) persay… although maybe just a little… heehee

  246. mr, I’m so looking forward to hearing recaps from you fans overseas. It’ll be fun hearing about the show from “virgins”, haha!

  247. mr: You know I’m just kidding. It’s wonderful that Adam is taking the Glam Nation Tour overseas and that so many more people will get to see him (yes, you included!!). For me it’s like sending your child off to school for the first time — you know it’s necessary, but it’s hard to let go.
    TexasWannaHoldEm: “virgins” — really??

  248. Now us internationals will have him in our paws a little- BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I really can’t wait for these shows.

    We also have the new drummer to look forward too.

  249. Oh, let me rephrase that: Glam Nation Virgins, lol! LibraRising, it is hard sending him off, but it’s a necessary step in our quest for world domination :)

  250. Yes TexasWanna- I will do my best to give the best recap possible!! Although I’m going to see him at the very end of his run- the London show- I hope he isn’t too worn out by then….

    Then again- he may go all out on us like in last nights epic performance!!!

    And LOL LibraRising- I was also thinking “who you callin’ virgin???”

    :-D

  251. So the concert last night was pretty amazing. The first number Monte and Tommy came out with masks on and Adam had a voodoo head on a stick thing. They obviously shopped in the French Quarter in the morning when they were down there. Adam took the mask off Tommy for a pretty long kiss for Fever. The crowd just went wild. The rest of the set was the usual with of course awesome vocals. The crowd was so loud it was like being in the Superdome for a Saints game, no kidding. Toward the end Adam called down to the stage these three queens with “the great necklaces” to see him. They all had big mohawks and were wearing stilletos and bare chested except for vests. That was fun. Then we got TCB with back bend head mopping Adam, yeah. It was a great concert and my kids really liked him. My daughter said she’s never been to a concert where the acts didn’t just fall closed behind one another. The almost hour dance party was a bit much. The music kept getting louder toward the end of it trying to keep people pumped I guess but it was almost like being at a rave. The crowd was diverse but I know there were plenty younguns cause it was extremely loud, screaming the whole hour, and yes during Soaked too. The sound at the theater where we were sitting wasn’t completed perfect cause every now and then we’d get the chipmunk effect. Security was pretty lacks cause many people pushed down toward the front and it was a seated venue. We were all kind of disappointed with Allison’s set. She is a great singer and I thoroughly enjoyed her on Idol but her band was way too loud, the floor was vibrating, and it seemed like she was screaming the whole time instead of singing normally.On the other hand it was not like that for Adam’s set. The band was perfect and his vocals were on point, no screaming, just wonderful and plenty glory notes.
    One last thing, it was great seeing the GN in person to see the whole flow of things and hear all his banter. But I got to tell you I’m really spoiled watching all of these close up wonderful videos all summer where you can see all his expressions and all his moves. We were too far back to catch all the details like that and our seats weren’t really that bad, just not up close and personal like the vids. I know Adam went to Bourbon Street after the show, he even said “see ya on Bourbon” at the very end. We were tired and had a long drive back home so didn’t venture into the zoo that is the French Quarter. Its an amazing place not to be missed on a visit to New Orleans. I know the peeps that were staying in hotels down there had a great time, it is such an amazing party atmosphere like no other. Sorry if this was a little long.

  252. NOLAmaggie:
    09/13/2010 at 1:16 pm
    Sorry if this was a little long.

    Never too long, NOLAmaggie! Thank you for your recap, I think it is the first one and we are pretty much panting for details (well, I am. Can’t really speak for anyone else, but I am guessing that I am not alone in my anticipation LOL)
    Glad you enjoyed the concert! and sorry to hear that Alli is just loud – quite a few people have said that, including me for Raleigh concert. She was so much better in Norfolk at the beginning.
    But Adam calling the boys down…such an Adam thing! and you are so right about the vids being closer than most seats are…it’s really a balance. Watch vids for view, attend concert for the experience. Ideally, do both! Several times…and then repeat…and… :)

  253. kradamour: it’s really a balance. Watch vids for view, attend concert for the experience. Ideally, do both! Several times…and then repeat…and…

    Amen to this

  254. LibraRising:

    Good morning all! I hope someone got a picture of Adam during Voodoo last night, standing at the top of the stairs, holding that incredible staff, with the full moon in the background. OMG!!! I’ve got the video paused in another window and just keep looking at it. Perhaps someone already posted that picture and I just missed it. Fingers crossed!!!

    Oh, I actually stopped breathing, from the power, of that confident visual. Adam was magical, and I loved the new staff, opening up the show.
    That moment, has to be on camera somewhere! Oh please let it be so.

    Adam was so in character, with a new dress up toy, and the energy he was projecting, came right through my computer screeen. Can’t wait for the re-caps to come flowing in!
    The granduer, from the get go was so hypnotizing. To actually be there, and to witness this live, would be a beyondo hightlight of concert going!

    I have to mention the energy, and sheer volume of the crowds’ cheering. I was taken back by the power & volume of it. It was like the cheering at a world level soccer game of sorts, to me. It was rich with LOVE & APPRECIATION for Adam! Oh, the JOY of Adam.

  255. One thing I forgot to say about GN NOLA, Adam was really feeling the joy and party that New Orleans is. Lots of banter I can’t remember (such a blur now) it all seemed to go by in a flash. When he got to the part in IIHY right before he introduces the dancers he kept riffing which was cool. He’s only done that at a few concerts.
    Someone asked where the clubs are…they are on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter down several blocks from Canal Street. More centrally located in the Quarter or more toward Esplanade Street.

  256. NOLAmaggie: Thanks for the great recap!!

    One of the reasons I went to the first show was for the “surprise” effect. We do get spoiled by the videos.

  257. So I was thinking of making mp3’s from last night….but I am sure it would be a waste of time since no one seems to like the show.

  258. Thanks for the recap NOLAmaggie!

    I finally got to watching most of the vids (before I was still at work and only commented on the comments, lol)- but two things stood out to me (apart from what has already been mentioned):

    1. I FLOVE that long note in STRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT… hehe
    2. Did you f***ing see Longineu go on his solo?????????? What a badass drummer, I so wanted to see/hear him play live… he’s rare I tell ya- one of the best out there..
    Oh well- it’s Yellowcard’s gain I guess… I’ll have to check them out…

  259. Smeggingnuts:
    Did I read a post from you that you had a bad seat for Puyallup?
    If so, I have one seat in the 19th row that I’m trying to unload. If I don’t sell it beforehand, I’d be happy to hand it over to you. Does that sound like something you’d be interested in?

  260. Smeggs –
    I just popped in for a couple of minutes and saw your post on the mp3s. I should refrain – might need a larger computer at this rate. But there’s no way I would say no to your offer. The extra he added last night is too good to pass up. Thank you again for offering to do this and yes I will think of you each and every time I listen to them.

  261. Has anyone heard how ticket sales are going in Manila? Isn’t that where they were starting with 50,000 tickets?

    Thanks for the offer Reese but CWM hooked me up wit an up grade this morning. I hope you can find a buyer…lol I hope i can find a buyer for mine lol and your are better.

  263. Here are some more international dates (already listed in local media):

    Helsinki, Finland Nov. 6th at the Cable Factory, tickets start at 49 euros
    Oslo, Norway Nov. 8th at Sentrum Scene
    Copenhagen, Denmark Nov. 10th at Store Vega (capac. 1500)

    All tickets go on sale on Sept. 17th.
    And AO hasn’t even added Paris or Milan yet to it’s Events List..WTF

  264. So I was thinking of making mp3’s from last night….but I am sure it would be a waste of time since no one seems to like the show.

    Smeggs..you always crack me up! Also, I’d like to order one of each please! :-)

    Here are some more international dates (already listed in local media):

    Awww….BB really is traveling the world!

  265. Oh Mr, Longineu’s solo last night was killer. My daughter said wow the drummer is really badass. It seems his solos are getting longer and more awesome now that he is leaving GNT, sigh. He wasn’t really taking advantage of the solo time in the beginning. And as for Adam, absolutely on point vocals with plenty of rock wails all night long, what a performer, just unreal.

  266. So do you think Terrance lurks here? Because he is sure opening his vest earlier now in that Fever video hehe…
    Hey Terrance *waves*

  267. When did the guys (Terrance and Taylor) start wearing belts with there white topped outfits?

  268. smeggingnuts:
    09/13/2010 at 3:22 pm

    So do you think Terrance lurks here? Because he is sure opening his vest earlier now in that Fever video hehe…
    Hey Terrance *waves*

    He always seems to open it just before Adam sits on the side stage platform. He’s been doing it for a while now that I could see. ;-)

    And the guys have been wearing belts since that rearview photo of Dante sitting appeared. Perhaps the elastic with the hammer pants was getting too stretchy and Dante was fighting to come out.

    Smeggs, have you emailed me yet? I need to book a flight and hotel and set up business appointments when I am on my working vacation in the Puget Sound region next week. Can’t wait! :grin:

  269. I can’t wait to see what the international shows will be like, whether there will be many changes.

    Came home from work early, feeling horrible. Feels like I have a hangover and I didn’t have a drop yesterday. I see that AdamisGodXXX isn’t back yet. She probably picked up a nice baebae voodoo doll while in New Orleans and has been practicing.

    Chicken soup is simmering. Going to go lie down and catch up on vids on the iTouch. I haven’t seen most of them yet.

  270. Almost choked! mr, a virgin! {{snicker}}

    Thanks for the recap NOLAMaggie, hope we get more of them.

  271. Smeggs, have you emailed me yet? I need to book a flight and hotel and set up business appointments when I am on my working vacation in the Puget Sound region next week. Can’t wait!

    ack my bad sent away with ticket details from cwm

  272. Ok,…Adam’s performances last night, were beyond the talent, and entertainment of the MTV Video Awards Show!!! He was absolutely a mesmerzing sexy beast, but with a heart. He is an “original”, and then some! His fierceness, and confidence, with an amazing voice, is the Epiphany of a deserving unqiue STAR!

    He will fopefully get his due awards, maybe the Grammy’s? New singles off the album, are imperitive. They are too good, not to be used. I think radio play, will happen & hopefully in a big way.

    You better believe, that the industry people, know how truely talented he is. Some are already copying him somewhat.
    It is a jungle of a business, and a lot of re-positioning happens, to keep themselves in the music mix, & current.

    No one has a voice like Adam, and is brave enough to entertain like him.
    He brings a whole new game, as a male performer.

    A lot of money, is in keeping RAP alive. It is fed to the young ones, like junk food. Not good for you, but it is what is forced down their throats, on the radio.
    Payolla is alive, & well in radio, even though we are led to believe it is illegal. It is organized music crime!

    I only watched a fraction, of the MTV Awards Show, but it was enough. I still want to watch Cher though.

  273. smeggs: I have to deal with RL for a bit and I come back to you posting that it might be a waste of time to make mp3s of NOLA because no one seems to like the show. Oh, smeggs, smeggs, you’re killin’ me here!!! Make the damn mp3s, pretty please.

  274. smeggingnuts:
    09/13/2010 at 3:48 pm

    ack my bad sent away with ticket details from cwm

    Got it! Thanks.

  275. Did anyone notice in the Singapore paper interview that Adam said he hardly ever checks message blogs but he does monitor Twitter as ‘market research’ to see what his fans like. So when we want him to see something in the future……..

  276. Thanks for the recaps :) I CAN NOT WAIT for international shows-those will actually be like interesting lol j/k

    She probably picked up a nice baebae voodoo doll while in New Orleans and has been practicing.

    LMAO :)

    I actually read the whole thread for once haha
    Thanks for the thread lorismile :) Great videos

    TCB WAS UNF&*KING BELIEVABLE…how the hell does he do that????????

    Does anyone know when Adam will stop touring and start recording for the new album? Thanks :)

    http://plixi.com/p/44853206

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww he looks so happy in this picture its friggin adorableeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :D

  277. Dante sitting appeared. Perhaps the elastic with the hammer pants was getting too stretchy and Dante was fighting to come out

    Who (or maybe what) is Dante? Is it what I think it is?

    I’m confused!!!

    I LOVE Terrance ripping the vest open. so HOT!

  278. Does anyone know when Adam will stop touring and start recording for the new album? Thanks

    Luv – he mentioned he was going to beginning writing in the fall (though when he’ll have the time who knows) and is looking at a spring release.

  279. Who (or maybe what) is Dante? Is it what I think it is?

    I’m confused!!!

    omg you missed Terrance naming his butt!!!! hahaha yes Dante is his butt…Sasha named hers Rhonda, either Cam or Brooke named theirs too but I can’t remember what it was….and Adam named his Fritz lol

  280. omg you missed Terrance naming his butt!!!! hahaha yes Dante is his butt…Sasha named hers Rhonda, either Cam or Brooke named theirs too but I can’t remember what it was….and Adam named his Fritz lol

    I learn something new every day…. LOL I didn’t know that either. i saw some tweets concerning Fritz (and had a Fritz story of my own), but I had NO CLUE what that was all about. :lol:

  282. Who (or maybe what) is Dante? Is it what I think it is?

    I’m confused!!!

    That’s why Terrance sent this Twitpic out yesterday. Dante, Rhonda and Fritz all make an appearance under his butt’s namesake Pizza place. ;-)

  283. Is anyone here going to the Atlanta show tomorrow? My granddaughter is leaving in the middle of a college class so we can hopefully get to Atlanta by 5:00. It seems as though we have been waiting for this forever – since June or July or whenever the tickets went on sale!!! Can we count on seeing them before or after the show – or both????? We have a hotel room so can stay up late!!!

  284. Well well well…there is a response the the Houston “review” from RockOff. They talk about multiple things brought up in the comments section. But they stand behind their writer in everything but do agree with the lack of reviewing the concert.

    Still other commenters pointed out that, whatever else was said, the review was lacking much in the way of musical analysis. Here, unfortunately, we have to agree. Rocks Off’s reviewers are welcome to include commentary on any aspect of a performer or performance, up to and including politics, religion and sexuality should they see fit.

    Many performers, hardly limited to Lambert, routinely address such controversial issues in both their songs and live performances. But our reviewers’ first duty is to consider the music above all else, and to place those other things within the context of what happens onstage, and here we fell short.

    It was an error in judgment, both on the reviewer’s part and on our part as editor, and for that we apologize. Our music reviews should, and will, do exactly that – review the music.

  285. Smeggs: (or anybody else who may know)

    Have you been to the Puyallup venue before? I’m in the process of getting tickets and am kinda curious how the place is laid out because it’s hard to tell from the maps. I’m going back and forth between my options because there’s some good seats in the A-H sections available, but me and my fellow Glambert are both kinda short so I’m hesitant to get them if it’s a flat floor/grass/dirt type situation. I wanna be able to see!

    Any insight here?

    arrrvee
    , I haven’t been there before but it seems that A-H sections on flat with folding chairs. There are bleacher, box and grand stand seating which is raised further back. There are 2 large video screens at the side of the stage.
    Here’s a website that shows information about the venue. Hope it helps! See you there! AL

    I asked my cousin who has gone to a ton of shows there. She said there really isn’t a bad seat in the house and she is short like me.

  288. So much to catch up on . . . Can anyone tell who the story behind the guy in uniform?

    Also, not sure if you saw this exchange between the DMN reviewers of the Dallas and Thackerville concerts regarding the Houston Press reviewer. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1134313202&v=wall

    Slightly off topic, but I heard IIHY on the radio in Dallas for the first time!

  289. Well, just did what I thought was a nice re-cap of NOLA and it’s in moderation. Have absolutely no idea why.

  290. Well, just did what I thought was a nice re-cap of NOLA and it’s in moderation. Have absolutely no idea why.

    Hi luval!! MJ will have to fix that I think. Maybe there was some word that activated it? I have no idea.

    Can’t wait to read it!

  291. luval – sorry about the moderation. Been looking forward to your re-cap. I looked at the calendar today and got very sad. Not only has the summer flown by but the long cold nights of winter are just ahead of us. Please oh please let there be continued Adam hotness to keep us cozy. God forbid I should open a book or turn on the TV. Paying my cable company has been a total waste of money these past several months. I really have a hard time remembering how I filled my after work hours. Crazy…..

  292. If you are thinking your gonna sell/give away your ticket coz of a “bad seat” dont do it! I have gone to 3 shows and had different seats. everytime, up close, main floor, the chipmunk effect happened, Adam sounded DIFFERENT than on the video of that same venue, but FARTHER back and even a few rows upward – you can HEAR ADAM WAY BETTER!.. so its your choice, to either sit close and SEE Adam or farther and higher, HEAR Adam. At least thats the conclusion I have with these shows. When i come home, Adam sounds different on the videos. ie.. at Rockford, i had 8th row center, nice up close, however, his voice sounded too high all thru the whole show. but when i listened to it here, he sounded like he was singing in a lower register. so please, 19th roow sounds GOOD! you will hear Adam better that way, plus you will be in the whole atmosphere.. what the videos dont catch is the whole atmosphere, and some of the effects, like the dancers and Adam choreography, and the laser light show in the part where he is changing his clothes for the 3rd part of the show.

  293. Hey y’all maybe you can see the recap now? “moderation” is removed I think. Thank you whoever removed it! It was a lot of typing.
    MaryT233…agree with you about where you sit. Have seen the show 6 times now and every time it’s different.

  294. MaryT233 — I too experienced the chipmunk effect when I was closer to the stage. My best sound experiences have been when I was in an upper balcony. On the other hand it is wonderful to be close and really feel like you are “seeing” Adam. I tried the HD earplugs and they didn’t help. I think if I had left during the opening acts I may not have had the problem. Both Ali’s and Ori’s bands were very loud. Being right in front of a speaker didn’t help either.

  295. Thanks AL Lurker & Smeggs!

    Tickets are purchased and room is booked. Road trip next week. WOO-HOO!!

  296. adamized: We at least have the international tour to look forward to.

    Paying my cable company has been a total waste of money these past several months

    I cancelled mine shortly after Idol was done. We never watched it! LOL

  297. luval – great re-cap. Glad it was “rescued” from moderation.

    pcaindawg, I’ll be there for both Atlanta concerts with froggie (fwachdr). I have heard that the Symphony Hall concert tomorrow night will have the buses under the venue in a secured parking garage basement, with no fan access. I hope that isn’t true, or that they will sign in a different location if it is true. Band members tend to roam about a bit before the concert, especially if the prior day was a day off. (which it is)
    Alas, can never “count” on anything, but Adam has come out after virtually every show for this second part of the tour.

    luval, enjoyed your recap! and a sane viewpoint re Drake.

  299. “I have heard rumblings of another tour the first of next year,” Deboer said.

    Noooooooo……….he needs new material to tour on so he can have a longer show! CD in the spring, tour again next summer! Plus he needs to get some sense of home again for a while after the International tour.

    EEEEEEEE……..I’ve been watching Rafa Nadal (swoon!) on his way to winning the US Open tonight but flicked on SYTYCD Canada for a few moments and what did I hear? IIHY!!!!! One the couples performed a New Disco routine to it. They weren’t so great but Adam sure sounded awesome!!

  300. MaryT233:

    Mary, thank you for posting that opinion re seats that don’t look optimum, especially now that fewer “good” seats are available and some peeps may think it isn’t worth going to another concert if the seats are not up front. I hope it will encourage people who are sitting on the fence to fall into the glitter and JUST GO! :)

    http://blogs.houstonpress.com/rocks/2010/09/adam_lambert_reviewing_our_rev.php

    I read the comments in response to this “review of the review.” Whew, another round of interesting reading. Anyway, several posters there mentioned that they had heard Adam’s response to the Houston reviews — something along the lines of “I guess the Houston press didn’t like me.” Where and when did he talk about this? Any of you heard those comments from Adam?

  304. When i come home, Adam sounds different on the videos. ie.. at Rockford, i had 8th row center, nice up close, however, his voice sounded too high all thru the whole show. but when i listened to it here, he sounded like he was singing in a lower register. so please, 19th roow sounds GOOD!

    I have fourth row orchestra seats (right mid center) for tomorrow night at the Atlanta Symphony Hall. There is still the pit section in front of me. I had front row floor seats (front left stage) in Duluth last year when I first heard Adam. However, I was so mesmerized I couldn’t tell you anything about his register. The only sound I could describe was he looked and sounded ethereal. Can’t wait! Anyone else going? I am taking a camera with HD video and a strong zoom. However, this is my first time using it for a concert. Also, I just don’t think I can contain myself for filming. I will do well to get a few photos! I’m hoping Suz will be traveling from New Orleans. Anyone know if she going?

  305. Also, not sure if you saw this exchange between the DMN reviewers of the Dallas and Thackerville concerts regarding the Houston Press reviewer. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1134313202&v=wall

    I can’t read this, can you copy/paste? Sounds like it was interesting. Thank you lorismile for that great article on Adam’s GNT production team. I love that he is so involved in everything, it just makes me so proud of him.

  306. arrrvee– congrats on tickets to Puyallup! Smeggs, AL Lurker, and I are going. We’ll be in Section D, row 11 if you want to come find us. Sounds like Reese might be going to. Anyone else out there planning on Puyallup??

  307. Muzic2luv, Froggie and I will be at Symphony Hall tomorrow (and Tabernacle on Wednesday). We’ll be two rows behind you on the aisle right. Come see us! :)

    This assumes, however, that I pack my suitcase and go to bed so I can drive from Norfolk tomorrow…

    So thank you for the thread, lorismile! G’nite all! Send karma to Atlanta for awesome concerts! :)

  308. I posted this in the media update thread, but had to share here, too.

    I finally heard IIHY on L.A. radio over the weekend. KBIG 104.3. I was just about ready to give up. Made me VERY happy!! :lol:

  309. I read the comments in response to this “review of the review.” Whew, another round of interesting reading. Anyway, several posters there mentioned that they had heard Adam’s response to the Houston reviews — something along the lines of “I guess the Houston press didn’t like me.” Where and when did he talk about this? Any of you heard those comments from Adam?

    It was from an interview with another Dallas Morning News reviewer/interviewer: http://musicblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2010/09/we-were-there-adam-lambert-at-1.html

    Here’s the particular quote:
    “My friend Virginia saw Mick Jagger years ago, and she says Lambert has stage charisma like none she’s seen since then. She also gained considerable “cool factor” with her sons, who’re 15 and 12. We got to meet Lambert backstage before the show, and he’s just as nice as he seems on TV — he’s so quiet and unassuming, in fact, it’s hard to believe two hours later that you’re looking at the same person — this Rock God — onstage as the sweet guy you met backstage. He sent a callout to our critic, Mario Tarradell, for his fabulous review of Tuesday’s show — and noted that “the Houston guy really did not like me.” Well, as I told him, Dallas has always been superior to Houston in every way. And now Adam Lambert is on our side, die-hard Dallasites.”

  310. I love last minute stuff like this. The week of anticipation is gonna be a killer! But nothing like the 2+ months I had for my only other GN show.

    We decided to go for the grandstand tickets after all – Section 9, Row 2. I wasn’t as worried about being up close for this one…I want to take in the whole show experience this time. Looking at videos and photos there’s so much that I missed by being up next to the stage and totally mesmerized by having AFL rightthereinmyface. (Backgrounds, laser shows, there were dancers?!?! :) )

    If there’s some kind of pre-show meet up in the works that could be fun! We’re driving up that day from the Boise area, but I think we’ll be in town by 4 at the latest. I just want to be sure to steer clear of the ‘Seriously Professional Glamberts’. They sound like they can just suck the fun out of everything. :/

  311. Ok, just read where a few are attending. Look for me dressed in black with a green spotted/peacock feather headband (my one ‘glam’ item)sitting next to a really cute younger blonde that is a precious substitute for my daughter who could not make it down from Tennesee.

  312. arrrvee…have a great time!!!!! oh, i’m supposed to be in bed. RL is back….ugh.

    Ron…if you’re around…thanks again for the pep talk! So so glad I went to NOLA.

  313. Squiggles621

    i finally figured out why @adamlambert isnt at the VMAs. he promised to sing live and on key. MTV has never heard of that concept before. about 24 hours ago via web

    Soooo true! :)

  314. Don’t be afraid of the Seriously Professional Glamberts. Just steer clear, and don’t take them seriously. They think they own him and whatever space they occupy. Glad my new lingo took on!

    As for location and helium effect or chipmunk sound. I had it bad in Milwaukee at Idol’s show. Floor, 20th row center. All of Adam’s set. Starlight was like a Chipmunk festival. So what, it was ADAM

    A little, very little in Milwaukee at Riverside for GN. Front of balcony, center, 30 feet from stage.

    None in Rockford, outdoors, 6th row center. Wore special earplugs for Alli. Took them out for most of Adam. Soaked=Sublime

    None in Peoria. Front row center baby. Best sound ever. No earplugs needed. Saw everything. I mean everything. People in the pit couldn’t see what I saw. Gah. Soaked killed me.

  315. luval:

    arrrvee…have a great time!!!!!

    Ha…no worries there! A great time WILL be had.

  316. ms0712: Great gifs but if you scroll down below the gifs you’ll see a sweet picture of Adam sleeping with his GN costume and makeup still on. I won’t say another word!!!!!

  317. Libra, that picture is photoshopped. It’s a picture of him in Milwaukee, with a credit to a fan from Milwaukee. It has the hair that was shaved and twittered that day that made news. He is wearing his collar up, and the necklace. I know, I was there. And, mlg just made such a nice poster of Milwaukee, so I have been looking at it lately. Adam signed it for me. Egads, how do I know all this.

    So, photoshopped or not, it is cute and sweet.

  318. milwlovesadam: You know I kind of wondered about the hair and the eye makeup but I think I’m just going to pretend that I didn’t read your post. I’ll be happier that way!!!!

  319. As the GN Tour winds down in the US, I just wanted to take a minute to thank all those who post all those great Adam pictures and GN tour videos for us to enjoy! I think I can speak not only for myself but for others when I say…it makes us happy and we thank you all for your time and dedication!

    When I watch the videos it is truly remarkable how much effort this band puts into each and every show! It’s a long, grueling tour and I give them all a lot of credit! The interaction between Adam, the band, and the fans is priceless! Especially love when Adam ends a song, then scans the audience with a broad smile on his face, nodding his head at their response.

    Here’s to you all and wishing Adam and his band great success in the future when he tours overseas!

  320. milwlovesadam: I think we’ve been to most of the same concerts, except switch out Peoria for Mystic Lake. I agree that the American Idol chipmunk sound was the WORST. I was about 5th row from the stage on the left. My sister-in-law and niece must have been close to you. She was there for Danny Gokey, not really an Adam fan, and thought he sang like that on purpose. I tried to convince her that it was related to the sounds in her ear (volume changes?) to no avail. That was frustrating! But to see him so close up…so worth it. Fun concert–sat next to two guys (partners) who were big Kris Allen fans, but loved Adam too.

  321. Hello, hello! Back home from NOLA. What a great weekend, although I am too old for the Bourbon St drunk fest. Kinda weird, kinda sad, kinda humorous to see what people do in the city that encourages imbibing of massive quantities of alcohol. Sights, sounds, smells, you get it all in NOLA! I’m re-uploading my YouTube videos, because I only just found out the way I uploaded from my hotel today didn’t do them in HD. Better ones should be up soon. Fun from right at the stage, but you’ll hear the peeps screaming, yelling, singing along. Got the backbend and other close-ups :) More stories to tell, but I may crash soon and be back tomorrow. Hope you all kept a good thread going, I will review it tomorrow sometime.

  322. The comments on the Strut vid are hilarious – “has a mind of its own (along with its own area and zip codes).”

  323. hi all :) Re those gifs, how did someone manage to get a pic of Adam sleeping? ((notice he sleeps on a pillow with support for his head, he looks cozy there :)

    That other one of Adam with his shirt off, (pre idol pic).. he has his arm straight up with his fingers touching each other, well since his arm looks like it is straight up, he must be double jointed in his shoulder to be able to do that.

    Re – concerts,, you know next year – I hope Adam will be in a larger auditoreum/stadium venue – he will be ready for it AND will sell out all tix,,, he’s just about ready to do that already .. anyhoo, this might be the last year we will see him in the smaller intimate venues, and have the opportunity to go up close ,, next year, not so lucky to get that. If you give away your tix, you will slap yourself for missing the once in a lifetime chance to see Adam as he blossoms into his successfull career!

    ah, but i still enjoy the videos you all make, it makes me feel like im there, so for those who cannot attend, these are just about like being there, in fact, if you didn’t see his face upclose, this is next to the best thing.

    thank youall for your hard work. and you know, there are many artists here, making those posters, – a work of art – very professional – they would sell well – and so many put up their technical skills to help eachother out with how to work things around here.. such talented peeps here!

  324. LeeTravers: Thank you for pointing out those comments on Strut. What I noticed in the video is that starting around 2:47 there’s a woman’s hand that seems to be strategically placed. Clearly an illusion, but I’ve got my crackpot research bifocal lenses on to study the video very, very carefully!!!

  325. Love that word, “crackpot.” So redolent of the type of activity that goes on here. Well, WTH – we’re havin’ fun.

  326. cwm:
    Nice interview clip. My reactions: Ladies, relax and shut up, let Adam talk! But I’m sure I would totally fangirl over him in an interview opportunity. I did with M&G :)

  327. Hi goatiegarden– thanks for the quick recap! Of course we are eager for more when you are up for it. :-)

    Wow, when I met you and madnessinmotion at the San Francisco show, I had no idea that the two of you would be living the Glam Nation dream all summer! Did you plan to go to all of these shows from the beginning, or did you just gain momentum as the tour progressed? With the exception of Suz526, you two might have the record here at MJs for most shows attended. Just curious, how many shows have you seen? (lorismile had a good run of shows, too, as I recall.)

    We’re all enjoying the adventure vicariously through you, of course! Keep those recaps coming!

  328. cwm: Funny, I will “only” have seen 11 shows total :) More than many fans, but much less than others. I’m so tempted to zip out to Puyallup to get another fix before Hawaii. Never planned on seeing this many, but that is my “Adam drug” experience. Just have to have more. I love his voice, energy, beauty, and sensuality. I’m watching my videos in HD from last night, thinking, OMG, I HAVE to seee him again, ASAP! :) I ADORE the peeps that I have met along the way, especially those of you posting and lurking on mjs. That is the other megacool thing about this AI/Glam Nation experience that I have been a part of this past year and a half. Say… when are you heading over to Puyallup? :) Checking flights/tickets as I post :)

  329. Well, people, it looks like Adam broke VH1. I was just over there TRYING to vote, took me 17 tries just to get to the Top 20 page so I could vote. Then, tried from every possible link to play IIHY and WOULD NOT play or even show the video on screen. Tried from his old Posted page, no luck. Tried from the Top 20 page, no luck. Tried from a search window, no luck. I am really tired of them, don’t believe in their rankings. NO TROUBLE playing Kris’ The Truth or any other video except Adam’s. (Even with being high up in the ranking, Kris only got about 15k more views.)
    I guess they want to shove Katy Perry, B.o.B, etc. down our throats – I suspect payola.
    End of rant ……. for now. Imma stickin’ with Vevo, and waiting for the Indianapolis concert vids.

  330. This “Music Again” makes me insanely happy. Sending it to all and sundry to make them happy, too.

  331. Hi everyone, came back from NO late Monday night. Am tired. Had a great time, especially meeting all my MJs peeps. The gay club experience was pretty cool. Boy, are there lots of stories to tell!! I could start with goatiegarden’s roommate and the voodoo doll, but I won’t. lol. To luval, soberba, jae,adamisgodxxx, ceddies,alaadam, adamland, eywflyer, suz526 and goatie of course, it was an honor and a great pleasure to meet you all. We had a lot of fun.
    First let me tell you where that voodoo stick that Adam used came from. A young couple was sitting on my right. The girl kept asking me all kinds of questions about the show , etc etc. They were very nice and it was their first Adam concert. She loves IIHY. Well, when
    Adam appeared holding the voodoo stick, the girl screamed and said “OMG!!!OMG!!! HE got it!! He’s using it!! OMG!!” Get a pic!! GET a pic!! to her boyfriend. “She’s gonna be soooo happy!!” Then she turned to me and said “My boyfriend’s mom made it for Adam and we couldn’t get to give him personally, so we gave it to security and begged them to give it to Adam!!! We didn’t think they really would, but they did, didn’t they?”!!! They were thrilled to bits. That stick really made an impression. That was awesome!! Anyway, y’all will have to wait for more tomorrow. There’d be pages of stuff if I had to tell all. Goatie can tell you more tomorrow.
    One of the friends with me that was an Adam newbie enjoyed the show very much. Many people down here within my friends and famiy think I’m an obsessed, OTT, BSC Adam fan. Well, my friend started to text to some mutual friends to let them know that she had seen some of the “real” Glamberts in action and I definitely was not even close to that level. :) :( Hah!! I’ve been vindicated, for now. lol Let me tell ya, though, some of those women are shameless.
    To Be Continued………………………….. :mrgreen:

    My favorite video so far from last night :’) Makes me tear up, even tho I was the one videoing! Luv Adam and his Glamily

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV_ym_gCD5U

    OMG… This should be with the video’s at the top! The energy, and the angle captures so much magic, in this performance.
    Thank you for taking the mesmerizing video, and for bringing it here goatiegarden!
    I’ve watched it 5 times already. This crowd was awesome!
    You captured Adam’s expression’s, and he was so happy, and all about the love!

    lorismile, PLEASE post this, with the other IIHY for viewing. You just got to! OMG!

  333. goatiegarden– your video of IIHY is awesome! What an angle. And such clarity too. Adam’s joy and energy are infectious so here. Thanks so much for sharing it!

    cher– thanks for the recap. I look forward to hearing more stories!

    riskylady– at your prompt, I went to VH1 and didn’t have any trouble voting or viewing the video. Did you use this link?
    http://www.vh1.com/shows/series/top_20_countdown/vote.jhtml

  334. Looks like the new drummer Issac has already joined the tour. Tommy twittered :

    TommyJoeRatliff Ha, first night of drinks… Follow this guy :) RT @IsaacTheCarp: Having the finer drinks with Tommy R.
    about 2 hours ago via Echofon

    Makes sense since Longineu is leaving after the Atlanta shows. He´s probably starting to learn how things work…Damn just lurking this week, I have to much work to do…RL sucks!

    My favorite video so far from last night :’) Makes me tear up, even tho I was the one videoing! Luv Adam and his Glamily

    Awesome video!!! I posted it up top. Hope you don’t mind.

  337. That IIHY video is good! Tommy’s been practicing. Since that funny pic was taken and circulated, he’s now had his hand up with the others in every subsequent IIHY. :)

  338. Aww goatie, that video is amazing! You really captured all the love going on with not only Adam but everyone else on stage. I always enjoy Adam and Brooke’s little dance – this one was adorable and Terrance’s laughter when Adam realized Brooke wasn’t behind him was priceless :) Thanks for sharing!

  339. lorismile: Absolutely post any of my videos if you care to :) I’m still a techno novice but it helps to pay up the a** for 1st or 2nd row tickets and to have a camera that does HD video. I have been fortunate to video several shows. I still get this weird amnesia after each of Adam’s performances, like I could never take in the full sensory experience (I really think my brain goes “Whaaaaaaat…..and then just becomes mush), and selfishly I have videos to replay my view.

    Uh, oh, the pressure is on for me to recap NOLA? Please, I am not that good of a writer! I will share what I can recall, but all you fantastic peeps who were there, please post hoe too! :)

  340. Remember to vote on vh1, peeps! Just watched video for the first time in awhile – it’s so good and so much fun. I almost enjoy watching him dance as much as sing :)

  341. Agree with Goatiegarden ….am ready to see another GN show! I think it was just a dream that I’ve seen 6 of them. I am not kidding. I almost don’t remember the minute I walk out of the venue. I’m in a fog I guess. I know I’ve missed so much because the focus (for me) is totally on Adam.

    riskylady– at your prompt, I went to VH1 and didn’t have any trouble voting or viewing the video. Did you use this link?
    http://www.vh1.com/shows/series/top_20_countdown/vote.jhtml

    Thanks, cwm, yes that link did work. I threw in a few dozen votes just to let them know my displeasure. Last night, I went in the same way I always have, and I think if you click on a link, dammit, it should take you where it’s supposed to, but I saved yours and will use it from now on.

    Goatiegarden, FABULOUS VIDEO!!!! Definitely a saver. Are you sure you’re a novice? Looked pretty damn good to me, would love to see the rest of your videos for NO!

    Cher, you know you want to let it all out, girl, don’t keep us waiting……

  343. lorismile, while you’re at it, I wonder if you might want to post anthrogeek’s or goatiegarden’s video of TCB up top as well. Both of their versions give good views of Adam’s awesome back bend drop to the floor. Suz’s view was blocked for that. Thanks again, lorismile, for your wonderful hosting of this thread!

    anthrogeek’s view: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viSyivKow_4&feature=youtu.be&a

    goatiegarden’s view: http://www.youtube.com/user/goatiegarden#p/u/8/D_V07WuEc8g

  344. Thank you EVERYONE for the amazing recaps! Sounds like the best show or, one of the best for sure. goatiegarden, LOVED your videos. I have not read the whole thread, just skimmed it. I am trying not to spend so much time on the computer. It really should not be this hard. lol

  345. Goatiegarden…..

    If you’re serious about Puyallup, I have one seat in the 19th row I’ve been trying to sell. At this point I just want to make sure it’s used. I could meet you at the site and hand it over.
    Think about it.

  346. Ashley – I am trying not to spend so much time on the computer. It really should not be this hard. lol

    haha, good luck with that! Adam, this site, and these fans are highly addicting :) Maybe we all need Glam-Timers?

  347. A million thanks for that great IIHY, Goatiegarden. So much fun to watch. Definitely a keeper.

  348. MLG, Great poster for tonight. Love that all players are showcased individually. It’s so smart as this may be one of the last appearances of this group of performers together ever. It is sad to think this may never happen again after Atlanta. So kuddos on you for this!!!!! Beautiful!!!

  349. mlg: Amazing poster, as usual. Going to have to come up with different superlatives to describe your work. We keep saying the same things: wonderful, incredible, dazzling, gorgeous, beautiful, stunning. Each poster becomes my favorite until the next one comes along. And thank you, mlg, for letting me be a part (albeit in a very small way) of tonight’s poster.

  350. haha, good luck with that! Adam, this site, and these fans are highly addicting :) Maybe we all need Glam-Timers?

    hahaha.
    It is so hard to stay away…

  351. riskylady– at your prompt, I went to VH1 and didn’t have any trouble voting or viewing the video. Did you use this link?
    http://www.vh1.com/shows/series/top_20_countdown/vote.jhtml

    Becasue of your problem at VH1, I just had to go back, and voted some more. Did you trick us all, and knew our curiosity would get to us. What a great strategy, and I am sure Adam hopefully got more vote’s from here, because of it. Brilliant, even of by accident!
    I had no trouble at all, in fact it was worked faster!

  352. Haha, well, it really happened *snicker snicker, believe what you will*
    Maybe they did some work on it after last night *snicker again*

    Good morning all! I hope someone got a picture of Adam during Voodoo last night, standing at the top of the stairs, holding that incredible staff, with the full moon in the background. OMG!!! I’ve got the video paused in another window and just keep looking at it. Perhaps someone already posted that picture and I just missed it. Fingers crossed!!!”

    This is my first try at block quoting — let’s see if it works. I wanted to repost this because no pics have surfaced yet. Fingers still crossed. Making it hell to type!!!

  354. awwwwwwwwwwwww I can´t take it! Longineu just ustream his goodbye. I have tears in my eyes! He said that he just loves Adam to death and hope that we continue to support Adam because he´s an amazing artist, great person and deserves good things. Also said that he is sad for leaving but this is something that he has to do for Yellowcard. Told us to support Isaac too… Ok I dont want anybody to leave! It´s heart breaking! It´s like a family member or one of you closest friends going to live in another country!

    http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/9569221

  355. Well, that didn’t work, but hopefully you all get the idea. I’m still desperately searching for that picture!!!!

  356. renataamelo: So sad. You’re right, it is like a family member or close friend leaving. He’s the first one of the group to leave the Glam Nation Tour. I know he’s doing what he has to do and it’s great for Yellowcard but sad for us. I have no doubt Isaac will be welcomed with open arms, but am still going to miss Longineau.

    Hi everyone, came back from NO late Monday night. Am tired. Had a great time, especially meeting all my MJs peeps. The gay club experience was pretty cool. Boy, are there lots of stories to tell!! I could start with goatiegarden’s roommate and the voodoo doll, but I won’t. lol. To luval, soberba, jae,adamisgodxxx, ceddies,alaadam, adamland, eywflyer, suz526 and goatie of course, it was an honor and a great pleasure to meet you all. We had a lot of fun.
    First let me tell you where that voodoo stick that Adam used came from. A young couple was sitting on my right. The girl kept asking me all kinds of questions about the show , etc etc. They were very nice and it was their first Adam concert. She loves IIHY. Well, when
    Adam appeared holding the voodoo stick, the girl screamed and said “OMG!!!OMG!!! HE got it!! He’s using it!! OMG!!” Get a pic!! GET a pic!! to her boyfriend. “She’s gonna be soooo happy!!” Then she turned to me and said “My boyfriend’s mom made it for Adam and we couldn’t get to give him personally, so we gave it to security and begged them to give it to Adam!!! We didn’t think they really would, but they did, didn’t they?”!!! They were thrilled to bits. That stick really made an impression. That was awesome!! Anyway, y’all will have to wait for more tomorrow. There’d be pages of stuff if I had to tell all. Goatie can tell you more tomorrow.
    One of the friends with me that was an Adam newbie enjoyed the show very much. Many people down here within my friends and famiy think I’m an obsessed, OTT, BSC Adam fan. Well, my friend started to text to some mutual friends to let them know that she had seen some of the “real” Glamberts in action and I definitely was not even close to that level. Hah!! I’ve been vindicated, for now. lol Let me tell ya, though, some of those women are shameless.
    To Be Continued…………………………..

    Cher, fabulous partial re-cap. Can’t wait for the rest!
    Can’t wait for all of the re-caps, from NOLA.
    This concert, was another gem in Adam’s crown!
    Adam was on fire, and I can’t say enough about the volume of the crowd there.

    I agree about the other videos, from goateigarden, and anthrogeek. They are fantastic, and a link up above would be so helpful.
    It would probably be easier, for them to post a link here, maybe?

    lorismile, you have done wonderful, with feeding us our Adam!Thanks for your diligence, and devoted passion as always!

  358. LibraRising:
    I’m still desperately searching for that picture!!!!

    LibraRising– Here are a few options…
    http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad3/starsparkle2/GLAMNATION/091210%20NOLA/6156d297.jpg

    http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad3/starsparkle2/GLAMNATION/091210%20NOLA/2ce8d605.jpg

    These are from this person’s photobucket: http://s916.photobucket.com/albums/ad3/starsparkle2/GLAMNATION/091210%20NOLA/

    There is also this twitpic: http://twitpic.com/2nxqiw.

    I’m almost positive that there was another twitpic that was tweeted out during the show, but I didn’t save it or post it because I thought a better one would surface, darn it. If you dare dig through the tweets that far back in the twitter list for this show (link posted above), I think you might find an additional picture of Adam and the staff. It’s not a great quality pic, though.

    By the way, has anyone seen a review of the NOLA show?

  359. cwm: Thank you so much for trying. The first one you posted is the best but it doesn’t have the full moon in it. When you watch Suz’s video of the Opening Medley, he stands on the top of the stairs from :39 through :55 and cameras are flashing (do cameras still flash) everywhere so I know there’s gotta be a picture out there. It’s just finding it! Does anyone know how to get a picture from a video? That would seem to be the best way to get the pic but don’t know if that’s even something that can be done. I know I’m pathetic, but I just love that view of him with the skull staff and the full moon in the background. Last time I went silly over a picture someone found it for me right away. This time I think there’s some serious, serious Voodoo at work here blocking that picture.

  360. lorismile, while you’re at it, I wonder if you might want to post anthrogeek’s or goatiegarden’s video of TCB up top as well.

    Sorry – at work and just saw this. I posted gotiegarden’s above :-)
    Can’t wait to watch it when I get home!!

    Thanks for all the recaps…they are awesome!
    Longineau was very nice when I saw him after Foxwoods. I will miss him and, duhhhh, of course we will continue to support Adam!!

    I just tried stopping the vid. then right clicking, print, set properties for photo and it went directly to my printer. It printed out 4 X 6 1/2. and really neat. However, I don’t know how I can get it back on the computer and post it? I guess I could try scanning?

  362. LibraRising–
    I agree, that opening scene with the staff in Voodoo was a stunning visual, and I knew that the pics I provided links to were only rough, incomplete approximations of what could be so beautiful.

    Perhaps the best thing would be to get a screen capture from Suz526’s video. She has that full straight-on view that captures Adam, the staff, and the full moon so beautifully and clearly (goatiegarden and anthrogeek weren’t straight on so didn’t capture the moon behind Adam). Screen caps are possible from video, but I sure don’t know how to do it. If someone here knows how to grab some screen caps from that video, that would be great!

    ETA: Haha while I was busy writing my post, retjenny was busy actually working on it! Way to go retjenny!

  363. I have a pretty good small print for my bulletin board but I don’t think it would enlarge very well. I was looking back to my saved pictures (ugh, I have over 2000 – me to me – get a life) anyway, there are many good ones of the opening scene with the full moon behind. I guess it is just a matter if someone got a good shot that night. It might turn up :)

    I made these for you. Not terrific but I hope you like them. Very difficult (for me, anyway) to get a really clear picture but I tweaked them as best as I could.

    There are 3 photos here: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/23489539

  365. That’s funny. Looks like we were all working on it at the same time. :D

    That’s funny. Looks like we were all working on it at the same time.

    It is funny … and so typical! When an Adam fan asks for or needs something, most everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon to see what they can do to help out. I think Adam inspires this kind of behavior in people.

    On a different note … but it is funny … I was befriended by someone today on another site who said I look like I should be in the cast of “True Blood”. At first I took it as a great compliment but then I thought she probably thinks I resemble Sam’s father. :lol:

  367. Ron:

    I think Adam inspires this kind of behavior in people.

    I was helpful even before I knew of Adam. I guess some people need more inspiration than others to be nice. :D

  368. Okay, my brain is still fried from NOLA and I woke up yesterday morning with complete laryngitis, but I’ll do my best to put down some coherent (and sober) thoughts. Love, love, love NO — always one of my favorite cities, but when you combine it with AFL, it’s just awesome sauce, as Sasha would say. It’s like Adam sings in DTRH: “Hands uncuffed, take the leash off this animal.” I think most everyone was embodying those lyrics. It was wild and that’s before the concert. Then out steps AFL with that voodoo spear and the place erupted. OMG. You’ve all seen the videos. OMG. OMG. OMFG.

    Let me go back a bit and talk about when we first got in the theatre. Out of 2200+ people, GoatieGarden and I ended up next to each other in the second row! Next to her was Lulu who has been to 17 shows. If you’ve been to one you’ve probably seen her even if you haven’t met her. She the tiny gal with the long, thick, gray braid. She dresses in purple and quite often a tiny little hat. She’s just wonderful. The AA and BB sections were just two rows of folding chairs between the stage and the divider. Security was at the opening of each aisle at the dividers. We were all given green wrist bands to easily identify us.

    With Lulu taking the lead, we spoke to our security guard who was incredibly understanding and supportive. Lulu explained to her the events in Thackerville and based upon that, how Adam had removed security from the front of the stage in Tunica. Lulu explained that Adam’s fans are very respectful of him and she needn’t worry about us and wondered if we would be allowed to stand up next to the stage because that’s what Adam would want. This lovely security guard told us that’s fine as long as we don’t go over the barrier. The barrier was right up next to the stage, touching it, lol. It was there merely to keep people from falling down under the stage!

    Before the show began, my daughter, Cassie, and I delivered a gift to the stage door. My daughter really likes Taylor and has been working for over a month on a sculpture of him in his Voodoo stance. In the gift box, she included a picture of herself and a note stating she would be near the right-side coffee table. (As a side note, we got to see makeup gal Jen when the stage door was opened and said hello to her.) My daughter was very excited and confident that Taylor would, indeed, receive her gift to him.

    Okay, back to our seats. We were told that as soon as the show started, we could “rush the stage as much as we wanted.” That was security’s term, not ours, and we merely walked quickly as soon as the lights dimmed for Allison. My daughter went to the area she had mentioned to Taylor in her note, but I went toward center stage. GoatieGarden and I were about ten feet right of center. We were all belly up to the stage! Alli was adorable as always. The audience gave her a lot of love. My daughter is a huge fan and is planning to sing a couple of Alli’s songs in an upcoming local Idol competition. Allison touched Cassie’s hand a couple of times during the show. She said she made eye contact with David Immerman and Liz Ann and Val. After the set, Val came out and pointed at Cass and said YOU and walked over and handed her a drum stick. I told Cass that perhaps Taylor had shown the sculpture to everyone and with her pic being in there as well as her location, they recognized her and gave her some love.

    This may have held true for Adam’s set as well, since Adam held her hand during SFW (7:23) and Taylor blows her a kiss in IIHY near the end of the song at 10:27. Look quickly or you’ll miss it. Tommy came over to her during one of the songs and waved his pinkie at her (!?) and made a lot of eye contact with her, and Monte came over and handed her a pick. She was ecstatic. She said everybody around her kept looking at her like what the heck is going on, lol. I think all that love definitely made up for the disappointment she felt from the night before not being able to attend the M&G in Tunica. :)

    Okay, back to the show. GG and I ended up giving up our front row to a lovely woman in a wheelchair. As Adam says, you get back what you give away, and shortly after, her hunky, gorgeous 23-year old son (whose fiancee could not make the trip) brought mom a cocktail. GG and I refused to let him go back to his seat, which was not in the first two rows. Security had merely let him through to give the drink to his mom. Goatie and I locked arms around his back to keep him there. It was a tough job, but hey we’re tough broads.

    We spent probably ten minutes telling him it was okay to stay there with us. He said no, it wasn’t right or fair and besides he knew we would watch out for his mom. I told him oh, no, we are no longer watching out for her and that he now needed to stay and make sure she was all right, lol. As soon as the lights went down and he saw that security wasn’t going to come and boot him, he stopped his protests. Goatie and I dropped hands so she could record, but I kept my arm around him (just in case). He actually kept his arm around my shoulder the entire concert. Such a nice boy!

    By now you’ve seen all the videos and know how amazing Adam was. It was great to see TCB in person, and now I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen all three encore songs. I was sure hoping to get WLL though. I think he was in a hurry to get to Bourbon Street!

    None of our large group went to the buses after the show since we had been told that the park was too dangerous and the gates are locked immediately following a show. We were told that Adam’s people had been advised of this. Well, apparently Adam didn’t go for that because we were probably the ONLY ones who didn’t go to the buses. :(

    I had given away two tickets to the show to the front desk clerk at our hotel and she said she and her boyfriend would give us a ride over to the venue. A lovely lady from Kentucky, whom we had met at the Nashville concert and who also stayed at our hotel, was with my daughter and me and we glady accepted her offer. When we got in the car the bf said he’d gotten a call from his friend, an assistant manager over at The Pub, and that Adam was scheduled to come there, before Oz.

    After the concert, we went over to check it out and yep, the cops were out front and a security guy was guarding the private entrance. Up pulled a white van and inside we could see Tommy, Terrence, Adam, Brooke and Taylor. Some had their hands blocking the windows I guess so people couldn’t take pics of them through the windows. People took pics, anyway. When they exited the van, we saw the above-mentioned as well as Lane, Allison, and David Immerman. There were a few I didn’t catch and some I didn’t recognize. About an hour later, out came Allison, Lane, Taylor and somebody else and they got into a cab and sped off. We called it a night about 15 minutes before Adam went to Oz. I had only three hours sleep the night before (which I am sure was true of a lot of folks) and could go no further. Don’t know how Adam does it night after night — oh wait, he’s young. Me, not so much. Time for bed.

    It was so great meeting all the MJ peeps there. Hung out a lot with Ceddies, who was adorable. She and her friend, Mary, were part of the caravan from Tunica with us, as was the wonderful Suzette who organized our caravan and the terrific dinner party before the show and the bus from the venue. She’s a dynamo. Loved finally meeting Cher who was completely darling and everything you could hope for. She knows everybody and is one of those folks (like Adam) with the knack of making you feel immediately comfortable and special and like you’re her best friend. Luval, too, was a delight. Such a great spirit and full of fun. I don’t mean to leave anybody out, but as I mentioned at the beginning, my brain is still fried. I’ve written a ton, and probably forgotten about half of what transpired.

    It was all truly EPIC (forgive me, Adam). So glad I spent the time and money on this opportunity for my daughter and me. I joke that she’s now attending Lambert U since we’ve pretty much blown her college fund this summer (j/k). :)

  369. Wow AdamisGodXXX, now that is what I call a detailed recap! Thank you so much for taking the time to write that up for us. It sounds like you had a absolutely fabulous time! I loved reading your story.

    And baebae and Ron- you guys are awesome. Nicely done on the Voodoo pictures!

  370. Terrific re-cap AdamisGodXXX….Wow, what a night to remember!
    I LOVE all the detils. So happy, for your daughter! The true Glam Spirit, car & all. Loved it…THANKS!

  371. AdamIsGodXXX

    Epic recap of what sounded and looked like an epic night! Very well written and a joy to read. Thanks for sharing!

  372. AdamisGodXXX: Excellent recap! I’ve got some rl stuff to attend to tonight, but your descriptions put me right back in NOLA! So funny about the son of the fan in the wheelchair: his is the male voice you hear in my videos. Whooping and hollering and calling out Adam’s, Tommy’s and Monte’s names :)

    I’m still considering Puyallup, totally crazy but as soon as I watch a video, I hear myself saying “if there’s a chance to see the last show before overseas starts , it’s worth it!”

    Got all of NOLA songs except Sleepwalker. For some reason it isn’t uploading, so I’ll keep working on that. If I have time tonight, I’ll post some of my favorite experiences from NOLA and also start uploading my Warfield and Thunder Valley videos. Yes, I still have them in my memory card :o

  373. retjenny, cwm, Ron and baebae: Wowowowow!!!!! Thank you all so much for those beautiful pictures and ideas about how to capture images from video. I knew if I asked, Adam’s fans would move heaven and earth to find a way to get what I needed. And I am being very careful in this post in putting retjenny’s name first, cwm second, Ron third, and baebae fourth. I went by the time each of you posted so there would be no quibbling about the order — I am equally grateful to all of you. I knew eventually I would get the picture but I think what shocked me the most was to see Ron and baebae working on the same thing at the same time. I guess pigs can fly after all!!! Thank you all again from the bottom of my Adam-loving heart!!!

  374. AdamisGodXXX:

    Thank you, Thank you, thank you so much for your epic recap! What an amazing adventure and wonderful memories for you and your daughter to cherish!

    Goatiegarten and Cher:
    I’m eagerly waiting for the your final recaps…can’t wait…thanks so much in advance.

    Renataamelo:
    I’ll really miss Longineau, too. I met him at FS…such a nice guy and sooooooo talented, too. I wish him the best of luck!
