Yes, I have been booked on Idol! Can’t reveal the date yet but it’s a ways off… So excited. Kris and Allison were awesome last night

Coming up for Adam: He has a sold out appearance at the Fantasy Spring Resorts Hotel in Indio, CA Saturday night, an appearance on the Jay Leno Show Tuesday March 2, then he is off to Australia to promote his album, For Your Entertainment.

Adam heads to the UK in March 18. He’s also set to visit Singapore, Japan and more…

Plus, Adam has a couple of casino dates in British Columbia Canada in April–the Coquitlam, BC, Red Robinson Theatre on 4/8 and the Richmond, BC, River Rock Casino Resort on 4/9.

  1. Yeah! I guess it’s probably in April with all his travel coming up, but very exciting!

  2. Yeah…. Adam will be on Idol. Oh wait, that means I’ll have to watch the show. I’m skeered. The way everyone is saying how bad it is this year.

    We should get TONS of Adam stuff in the next month. WOOHHOOOOO can’t wait. One thing with Adam, you never know what to expect.

    MJ always puts the best pictures up on these threads!!

  3. I have a “keyword name alert” on my Yahoo for Adam, and the big story for him lately is that he said Susan Boyle’s album is horrible, and that her version of “Wild Horses” made he laugh for hours…

    I am glad he will be busy, he needs to be seen, and I haven’t seen him in quite some time…

  4. Well we kinda knew he had to be on sometime. I wonder what he will do overseas if he is going to be out of town that long. I thought it would be a quick international hit then back to the US & then we’d see him on a results show.

    How does this international stuff work for the idols? What types of events/gigs did the previous idols do for their promo tours?

    I’m guessing that it *might* be a little different than a typical new artist since they have AI name to piggyback on. Maybe these guys are less of an unknown overseas than I would think. I’m assuming no one knows them and 19 has to knock on a lot of doors. I keep thinking of The Script since they are an import and the types of gigs they have had.

  5. Those two casino dates in Canada are SOLD OUT also!!! 3 sold out shows…so far! lol

  6. Yeah…. Adam will be on Idol. Oh wait, that means I’ll have to watch the show. I’m skeered. The way everyone is saying how bad it is this year.

    Don’t worry. You’ll only have to watch it on results night. Not like you’ll have to watch the current batch compete, lol.

  7. How does this international stuff work for the idols? What types of events/gigs did the previous idols do for their promo tours?

    They do pretty much the same stuff as they do in the U.S., so far as I can tell. TV appearances, radio appearances, small concerts sponsored by radio stations, interviews, appearances at festivals and other events. All the usual promotional stuff. Sometimes they get a chance to appear with some well-known local artists. It’s just plain old promotion, no matter where it happens, I think.

  8. Woohoo for Adam news!! I can’t wait to see him on Idol!! This season (for me, anyhow) has been downright b-o-r-i-n-g!! I wonder what he’ll sing?!?! Excited!!!!!!!! :):):)

  9. I’m so grumpy that logistics are preventing me from using my ticket to tomorrow’s show. Maybe I’ll get lucky and have my name drawn from the waiting list for the night Adam’s on AI.

  10. European Promo tours….I’m not totally sure but I don’t think “many” former Idols headed over seas to do promo before they were pretty established Stateside. I know that a few of the idols were booked for some gigs in the Phillipines and that Archie was the opening act for an English group for a dozen performances, but then my mind goes blank. Others may have a lot more information.

    Adam is releasing a “local” version of his album in many of the countries he is visiting (not just the US import). He has been doing a lot of pre-promo interviews and his music is being played on many local radio stations. He isn’t going to Europe and Oz and Asia as an unknown…just not well known.

    It will be interesting to see how this “world wide promo” pays off. Sometimes it leads to more Stateside interest as information trickles back to the States if he is well received across the ponds.

    March should be an interesting time for Adam and his fans.

    lorismile, I could not agree more, I have mentioned it before – MJ always puts Adam’s best photos – kudos to MJ’s :) plus I only go to her blog to read about idol news now :)
    and of course comments are the best part :)

  12. The different approach that 19/RCA/Jive are taking to promote the Davids and Kris, Adam and Allison is interesting. For the Davids, the strategy seemed to be non-stop touring. For Kris, Adam and Allison, it seems to be more TV appearances and promotional stops. It’ll be interesting to see which approach proves to be more successful/profitable.

  13. I am so glad an AI visit is confirmed. I was pretty sure he’d get one if not two chances to sing on the show this year – since they brought back Idol Gives Back I thought they’d get as many people as possible to participate and a results show for sure. I hope it is top 12 and later but I will take anything.

    He isn’t going to Europe and Oz and Asia as an unknown…just not well known…
    It will be interesting to see how this “world wide promo” pays off.

    I agree he is charting in most of these places on ‘imports’ alone and has been doing phone interviews – I have seen on other threads scans of Asian magazines and NZ and Aussie blogs have articles. He is heavily charting on overseas radio for both WWFM and FYE/single.

    We know he’ll charm them and I hope we get to see plenty of Vids/Pics – seeing the wit and intelligence in interviews is always entertaining and if he sings double bonus!

  14. Fun to get AI confirmation. With all he has going on I guess the appearence would be late April/early May?

  15. I agree that not many Idols have done much overseas. However, at the least, Kelly C, Daughtry, and Elliott (in Japan) have done the stuff I described. And on more than one trip, in all cases. Don’t know how many others have — I don’t think there are many. Nevertheless, promoting your album is promoting your album, pretty much, I think. With the same kinds of events everywhere.

  16. thanks all for the international info. I had no idea there were additional releases coming up. It makes sense.

    Re: the appearance

    I hope it is top 12 and later but I will take anything.

    I feel the same way. I’m sure there is a lot of juggling with schedule when the idol (no matter the season or the placement) return to perform.

  17. OMA SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THIS MADE MY LIFE YOU DO KNOW IM BEEN WISHING FORTHIS FOR LIKE WEEKS RIGHT?? OMA IM THRILLED-can’t breathe rn

    that’s sweet about kradison

    I hope he’s invitie back for the final too

    next;SNL please!!!

    i have to admit I’m oy excited about fantasy springs for the videos

  18. Leno on 3/2 and SYTYCD on 3/4 in Oz? Holy Jet Lag! And maybe Mardi Gras?

    I can’t wait for the Down Under interviews and the UK.

    I saw a video on Twitter from China with a clip of WWFM playing on a soccer commercial. And FYE seems to be doing well overseas, go Adam!

  19. From Down Under:

    Lambert will visit Sydney and Melbourne and highlights of his visit include live performances on So You Think You Can Dance and Sunrise. Lambert will also be signing copies of his album For Your Entertainment at HUM on Oxford, Sydney, on Saturday, March 6th from 12pm.

    With his out-of-this-world vocal range and unique musical style, Adam Lambert is the ultra-glam, rock superstar that has the world hooked. Lambert’s debut record garnered contributions from such innovative artists as Lady Gaga, P!nk, Muse, Justin Hawkins formerly of The Darkness and Rivers Cuomo from Weezer

    Also:
    Calls to the Sydney Star Observer office yesterday and today have indicated next Saturday’s surprise guest is “a breakaway performer promoting their debut album”.

    Other calls to the office have suggested Pink, who is expected to return to Australia for the Melbourne Grand Prix in March, is also expected to perform at the party.

    Coincidentally Lambert’s current single, Whataya Want From Me, was co-written by Pink.”

    So, in the next week we have a full sold-out concert, Leno and 3 performances in Australia to look forward to! Plus, LOTS of interviews! This next week will be exciting!

  20. I hope the Aussies are just as good at getting footage up on You Tube!

  21. The UK album with the two additional song does anyone know if in someway those tunes will be available for us to purchase. I thought I read that Adam said the UK album would be available from his site. Did anyone else read this also. Glad he is going to be busy. I hope he continues selling at least at the rate he has been (12-15K weekly) If he can a minimum keep that sales pace up he will be platinum before then end of the year. Which will be a great great milestone in this sales climate.

    I’m so grumpy that logistics are preventing me from using my ticket to tomorrow’s show.

    hey that’s too bad what’s the problem? the tix at FS are all to be picked up at the box office there. SO you can’t get there?

    It’s a whole transportation/babysitter mess. I wish they didn’t hold the tickets there or didn’t require my I.D. It would have been nice to give the ticket away, but if I could make it up there to get the ticket to give it away, then I could make it up there to use the ticket myself.

    There’s still a chance I might go, but it’s not looking good. I’ll just hope for some video from those who do get to go. :)

  24. I am going to the Coquitlam concert and have a spare ticket I would love to offer someone at face value. Spreading the love, so to speak. Some stipulations (i.e. no bra tossers!) Check for details on the official site under Red Robertson thread.

    MJ, hope this doesn’t violate your t of use.

    Also, I also figure it is the Idols Give Back ep that Adam is slated for. Just a guess, of course!

  25. There’s still a chance I might go, but it’s not looking good.

    need a ride, we have one more place in our car… coming from the IE :)
    However I wouldn’t know how to meet through MJs here – can’t plaster my cell# all over this blog….. LOL

    I’m so excited for his trip. We should get a bunch of stuff!!!

    sounds to me like we’re expecting souvenirs from Australia – LOL – made me laugh – too cute

  26. Hurray!!! WWFM was played on Israeli radio yesterday with a very nice intro. It made my day, week, month…Hopefully they are getting ready to launch his album here. Maybe it will be the international version with the new songs. Please, please, please, then I won’t have to download them from u-tube and Adam will get paid.

  27. I highly doubt that the booking adam is talking about is for idol gives back. I am sure adam will be on sometime between late april/mid may and will launch whatever the next single is. He is not going to launch a new single on idol gives back

    I kind of think that the difference in approach might have something to do with album sales. David Cook already had a platinum single and his cd was nearly platinum by this time last year, when he started his tour. I am not sure if this is the difference in who gets to headline a tour or not.

    Maybe the increased tv apperances are to get the album and single sales up.

    Ooh, tempting! :) I’m in the southwest IE. Not sure where you all are. My web site is linked on my user name above, and there’s a contact link on that page over on the right. If you want to contact me without us stating things explicitly here, that’s the way. I still have the babysitter thing to deal with, but I have a few ideas.

  30. He is not going to launch a new single on idol gives back

    Curiously, why not?

  31. If I had to guess, I’d say Adam will probably be on the AI results show on Top 3 week. Kris will be there the following week to pass on his crown.

  32. Curiously, why not?

    Because its a charity event. most people sing inspirational stuff, etc. (eg kris singing let it be last night). it is neither the time nor place to do a big single lauch promo. adam and his people are going to want him to go on idol and have a nice video package showing him travelling the world, touting his sales, celebrity etc. and launching his single. I doubt adam will be on the show more than once this season, so they want him to be on with a bang

    Good guess, I’d put money on that, although don’t they also have a lot of air time to fill on the final results night? I’m trying to remember.

  34. Has Adam gotten any underwear thrown at him since the tour? I wonder why not, lol

  35. Why is Adam Album $17.99 on Amazon. Actually all 3 Kris, Allison, Adam have had the price inflated to $17.99 isn’t that crazy. What CD is that much money now a days. I can’t believe it is still in the top 100 and at #58 even with the inflated amount. I can’t understand why amazon would do that don’t they want to compete with other markets when it comes to albums. Strange.

  36. dhunken – I think you mean Amazon not Itunes regarding the $17.99 price

    How does one get in touch with you? I’ll be back from Palm Springs Monday and have a friend who got no tickets for either show and would buy it. I believe the guy running RockStarWeekly (out of Vancouver) also couldn’t get tickets as he had something on the website about it. I know he’d love to go and perhaps review the show.
    Ps. I managed to get 2 single tickets for Coquitlam by trying for 20″ at Ticketmaster but was planning to take my son as I’m hoping to turn him into an Adam fan too, so I don’t keep getting the eye-rolls and “Are you reading about Adam again?” scornfully said, from him.

  39. Vorona: I gmailed you!
    I am so excited for tomorrows FS Adam concert, I am afraid of being let down….

    I checked on the German Amazon site for FYE, there is not tracklist listed, so I don’t know if it will have the extra tracks. I have an account there an can get German released CDs cheaper.

  40. My flight to Fantasy Springs was canceled due to high winds and bad weather here in the east. If someone wants to use my Glamily Reunion ticket I could fax my ID and releaese to the box office. It is a shame for it to go to waste. I bought insurance for the concert but not to that. Talk about depressing. Not only am I out some money, I don’t get to see BB and meet all of you.

  41. Aww I’m sorry adamized.That really sucks…I hate the weather sometimes…
    Have fun lucky people that are going to any adam concert !!!!!! (like I saud,I don’t think I’ll be able to go until I’m 18 D: )

  42. I really really hope it’s available on iTunes because my parents won’t let me buy it on his official site. I could get it illegally,but I want him to get paid.

  43. I’m sorry adamized. I wish I could buy your ticket, but I’m on the East coast too.

    My heart goes out to you. So sorry! :(

  45. Sad.. the Singapore concert is a closed door concert and they still have not advertised how to win the tickets. This is soo disappointing.

    As for AI, i feel Adam will be on during one of the later episodes and then on the Finale.. heh.. just my guess.

    I agree with you, I think after he gets back from his overseas tour, I think he’s going to make an appearance and then at the finale. They are going to need acts on that show that will pull some really ratings, because from what I seen so far, they don’t have any contestants that people are crazy about.

  47. I would love Adam on the S9 finale. I thought I was going to die last season when he sang with Kiss and Queen. The “Beth” moment was epic. :)

  48. Isn’t the finale reserved for the winner???
    I’d love to see Adam on AI but am a bit frustated that he isn’t there around this time. Kris and Allison’s appearances really boost their album sale, and Danny will be on next week. I think Adam just misses the good opportunity.

  49. Watt: Adam is doing a bunch of other things. I don’t know who will perform on the finale. It would be great if Adam and Kris were both at the new season 9 finale. Adam will get his chance to perform. Don’t worry.

  50. That’s a bummer, Adamized!!! Even down here in Miami it’s pretty chilly. So you guys must be snowed in!!! That’s okay, you’ll see BB soon enough. He’ll come your way again soon, hopefully in a warmer climate. Can’t the box office sell your ticket for you? I’m sure someone’s going to want it tomorrow night.
    Everyone that’s going, have a blast and send MJ lots of pics for us!!!!

  51. Maybe I’m too addicted to Adam.

    Nope. No one can be too addicted to Adam. lol. He’s going to be okay, and I predict some epic videos coming our way soon! :)

    (hands clapping while saying) Hercules….Hercules…Hercules. :lol:

  53. Isn’t the finale reserved for the winner???

    Yeah guess. I am sure Kris will be there. But I feel Adam will be included as well. Just a hunch.

    He also performed at the SYTYCD finale, Not saying that SYTYCD = Idol but still…

  54. I don’t know about Adam being on the finale. I don’t think he will be, especially if he is on later in the season, but who knows. It would give me a reason to tune in. Last years finale was wonderful (well except for the last few minutes for Adam fans! :-) )

  55. Jurnee,

    Have your friend check for my email at Adam Official. Under Community, Discussion, there is a red Robinson thread by Sealily, that’s me. I would post it here, but I think that is against MJ’s terms of use??? Or can I post my email here?

    I am not scalping the ticket. Just want the price I paid, plus a drink!

    I just went to look and can’t see that thread of hand. Is it under Tour Talk West Coast or under the heading Adam discussion?

  57. Hi lazyc0w, do you live in Singapore? I’m in Jakarta now, and I really want to see Adam, so I need to know the info for the ticket box and all, can I contact you via twitter of facebook? Thanks a lot :)
