  1. Who is Lane that the Tweeters keep talking about as being with Adam when he was running for the elevators?

  2. I believe Lane is the blonde girl who is almost always seen with Adam. I think she is his personal assistant. (lucky chick).

  3. I wanna be lane for a day …or a life…

    I know this is unpopular,but sadly I agree.Sparkle cows galore–

    KellyC09 on February 28, 2010
    wow.. bingo anyone? Poor Adam

  4. Sounds like the Glamily reunion was a huge success. i remember people thinking it was a stupid idea.
    Did not anyone listen to Adam on his DonorsChoose chat? He has no problem with women over 40 as his fans. I hate that term Sparkle Cows. I am tall and thin and I would never call people names because of their weight. Bet other singers would love to have a few thousand loyal fans like this. Is Isabelle a sparkle cow too?

  5. Is Isabelle a sparkle cow too?

    By my definition no

    Sparklecow for me:cray-cray fan ,usually overweight and over 50 but just because you are and an Adam fan doesn’t make you a sparke cow,you have to leave your family and stalk him across the country

    this is justy my interpretation but for them,Idont think it’s their first Adam show.amd no,I don’t know tht for sure

  6. I’m a little disturbed at the @ replies to Tommy right now. welcome to the cray crays.

    Sounds like Adam and Tommy’s parents are both there tonight. awww.

  7. Wow, I knew that there will be a majority of older women but by the looks of it that’s almost the only type of fan who came to the pre show party.

  8. I like Tommy’s new blonde hair. I hope no one says anything to Tommy’s girlfriend. ha.

    Hope everyone has fun. Also hope Adam opens for some pop artists his age this summer to expand his fanbase.

    From some earlier twitter they showed the set list and it seems they are going to play some different songs tonight. Hope they get video.

  9. In case you are not following the tweets. In the venue there is a huge mix of people…young, old, male, female. People of all ages, sizes and shapes love Adam. The way it should be.

  10. Someone just said on tweeter that Adam has been offered a gig at Foxwood in CT. I t seems like Adam is wanted everywhere! After the sold-out Fantasy Springs concert event, other casinos may want to book Adam to perform at their casino. Here is an example.

    Someone wrote to Foxwoods in Connecticut and requested for Adam to perform a concert there and they replied saying they have made an offer to Adam but they’re still waiting an answer from him. this article:

  11. LP’s fiance tweeted about cutting the bangs of Tommy’s girlfriend’s hair and some crazy shippers are calling him a liar because in the past he’s said he doesn’t have a girlfriend.

    Frankly these crazy ones are probably the ones who haven’t believed Adam when he said Tommy is straight. Fans don’t really know what his status is and it’s none of our business really. They shouldn’t be calling him a liar. Luckily the good outnumber the bad tweets.

  12. Wow, I knew that there will be a majority of older women but by the looks of it that’s almost the only type of fan who came to the pre show party.

    I’m sure Adam doesn’t mind. He seems to be thankful for each and everyone of his fans!

  13. Does anyone know when this starts? I don’t know and don’t wanna be one the computer for like a hour waiting

    I’m sure Adam doesn’t mind. He seems to be thankful for each and everyone of his fans!

    every single sweaty and smelly one of them! lol

  14. The opening act is on now. I don’t know if I’ll stay up for the videos later but I wanted to see what Adam is wearing. Apparently Tommy’s mom asked for Elvis hair, lol

  15. I would just die!!!!!! I live in CT and I’m scared to hope!

    That’s close enough for me to go to too! My husband wasn’t fond of the Vancouver idea even though I would be able to see my mom as a side trip. lol. CT is actually an option! :) I’ll hope with you.

    I got my quoting mixed up. Sorry.

    I like that picture, I see quite a few men.

  18. Was just gonna post that lorismile…pretty damn cute if I do say so myself.

  19. Just saw this hilarious tweet:

    SusanReep In concert feeling sorry for opening act. She asked did we want a ballad or up tempo and we all said adam.

  20. sexynarwhal
    This crowd is actually a really good gender/age mix. Color me shocked.

  21. No elvis hair, good! Glad he’s not wearing a suit, freedom to dance! The jacket looks casual enough. Looks so much fun!

  22. Just saw this hilarious tweet:

    SusanReep In concert feeling sorry for opening act. She asked did we want a ballad or up tempo and we all said adam.

    awwwww…. I understand their passion tho!

  23. For what mmb?

    Tommy told us their doin Whole Lotta Love in a way we’ve never heard it before! Can’t wait to hear it

  24. Sorry for the ot post re snl, but I figured this crowd would appreciate it. They did a spoof of yet another remake of we are the world, but this time with an a-list cast. So they had the snl actors dressed up as rihanna gaga gwen stefani. Adam and others. “Adam” sang 3 solo bits in the spoof

  25. SNL just had a fake Adam in their We are the World show opener skit.
    They are totally snarking/spoofing “We Are the World II”. Totally dissed the Fetus.

    Cool, it’s better for an artist to have a good mix of gender/age, I guess most of the men/young people bypassed the party.

    “Adam lambert” was just on SNL. He has made it people!!!!

    awesome!!! I missed it;I was doing hw;LOL I suck

    Now all he has to do is host :)

    But no fetus dissing ;(

    The pic of him meeting Isabel Is so sweet…

    But I want better pics of all of there outfits

    lorismile,if you’ve seen some of the fansites,the things they say about Kris is disgusting

  44. mmb

    wasn’t SNL making fun of “Adam”? That’s what I saw on twitter

  45. Leave it to Adam to surprise us once again with his wardrobe. Can’t wait to see a clear picture of him!!

  46. insomniac19

    Adam has like feathers in his hair. Lke clip on extensions. It’s sweet

  47. Girlygirl. No they weren’t making fun of him any more than they were making fun of gaga or rihanna or gwen. The premise was that the watw remake was terrible and full of b-listers. So fake quincy jones decided to make another remake with more famous peeps, including adam, gaga, rihanna, gwen et al and they spliced in footage of the remake video and made fun of bieber, vince vaughn, and other strange people who took part in the remake. It was funny. But it was not mocking adam in particular at all

  48. stream isn’t work for us anymore

    awww-that sucks.I wanted other people to see ot and not have to “suffer” (yes,it is suffering ;))

    He does have a habit of crashing sites, etc…

  50. from a journalist there covering the music scene locally:

    Adam Lambert shines on the end of “Soaked.” He’s either going to be the biggest pop star on the planet or get his own Broadway show.

  59. Ugh now I’m jellus of people who’s ustreams work (J/K)

    Anyway,my battery’s almost dead,so gnight

    I’m going to catch up early tomorrow :)

  60. Holy crap – that was more erotic than any live show he did over the summer

  61. Don’t know what he’s doing in Whole Lotta Love but it sounds incredibly raunchy …. in a good way .. it kind of sounds like musical porn .. lol

  62. I would be one of those past out on the floor women if I was experiencing this live. OMG this is soo hot…send my brain in one direction….

  63. Too bad the video on the livestream is failing. But we can’t have everything.

  64. I think there may be a few imaculate conceptions after that version of WLL

  65. I can’t I can’t omg this is off the charts spectacular. This live stream is the best I have ever heard. Thank you whoever. I have no words for the performance. It was unreal

  66. coulditbeJenG BAND DIDN’T REHEARSE THAT SEX THAT JUST HAPPENED. ADAM ONLY BY HIMSELF IN THE CAR

    that was WLL….Seriously???

  67. OG, my computer just got a blue screen right in the middle of Mad World and I have now missed WLL. I was already nervous about the blue screen, now I’m mad about what I missed. Did anyone else have computer problems with the ?coral stream thing we were watching?

  68. I’m still not over acoustic WLL….so bluesy and sexy and jees, there are NO adjectives. Can’t wait for video of that.

  69. pecom_audiofile

    Adam Lambert is playing “Music Again” at @FantasySprings. I feel like this should be in a montage for a film from 1987. Love it.

    Darn it! She’s kind of right. That’s how I’ll be hearing it for a while. Grr. ;)

    Trying to pry my mind from FF, Row B, Seat 6, and be thankful for live feed and my husband having a job, even if keeps me from the occasional show.

  70. OOOOMMMMMGGGGGGG!!!!!! Acoustic WLL, I will never forget that, it was out of this world. Bluesy and totally sexy, it was unbelievable.

  71. Ceddies If you get an interruption in the livestream just refresh the page, that works for me.

  72. Love Zodiac Adam !! All I can say is those folks are getting their money’s worth.

  73. Holy Sparkly Cow – Love that picture of Adam and Tommy. Love Adam’s outfit.

  74. Was there no encore? It sounded like Down the Rabbit Hole was just part of the set.

    And, yes, I hope YouTube comes through tomorrow!

  75. money’s worth indeed. I hope there is video! I need that WLL in mp3, hot! night peeps!

  76. OMG, he has done it! Adam has innovated a whole new sound for real with his band. I just heard streaming WHOLE LOTTA LOVE. He has put together “sounds” with the ole Black blues rhythms, his own falsetto and God knows what else. Where is the CD. I want it NOW

  77. I am reassured that ADAM LAMBERT is gonna be a big stah after that performance! Good GAWD!!! That was the most awesome thing I have heard in a long time!!! Probably NEVER!

  78. holy crap we need vids!! sounds like the newspaper people tweeting there were really impressed and said he could be a superstar, cant find the tweet at the moment..

  79. Holy cow, I’m still not recovered from WLL. That man is a genious!

  80. Will, thanks for the info. I think I have other problems w/computer. Gonna just close up for the night, virus scan, and hope for videos tomorrow.

  81. Adam Lambert brings back the rock with a Zep cover
    By Vanessa Franko on February 27, 2010 9:45 PM
    Adam Lambert is doing an acoustic arrangement of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.”

    Current “Idol” contestants, this is how you change up a song by still making it recognizable, (I’m looking at you, Lee).

    He said he and his band didn’t really rehearse the cover.

    “I rehearsed it like crazy in my car, but they did not rehearse that,” Lambert said

  82. WLL was a watershed moment for Adam tonight. Like his first performance of Mad World on AI. Just another performance that will last forever in the minds of those who heard it and one that shows once again how really great he is.

  83. Can you imagine if he had sung WLL like that on Idol? LMAO….TVs across America would have melted.

  84. I seriously need a video of that acoustic WLL to watch EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!!!!!!!

  85. Adam left over 3000 people bowing down at his greatness tonight. My heart is still beating fast after listening to that song. It was one of the greatest acoustic performances I have ever heard. None of those wannabees on Season 9, could come within a mile of Adam’s talent. That performance was beyond anything he has done before, even Mad World.

  86. Just got back from a night out in rainy San Diego to read about an acoustic version of WLL by Adam Lambert ?!?

    I can not wait to hear/see this!! I mean who does an acoustic version of WLL?

  87. Accoustic WLL – so great, so exciting, another “moment.” Adam Lambert just keeps giving fans who attend his live concerts performances that they will always remember, I think: i.e., “I saw Adam Lambert back in 2010 at . . . when he . . . ”

    I can’t wait to see what kind of vids/pics etc. surface tomorrow. He looked kind of “retro” rock to me, in the few pics I’ve seen, which “fits” all the accoustic songs, bluesy wails, and “bongo beats.”

  88. Oh my Ra. Eargasm is the word for acoustic WLL, even on a mediocre cellcast. It really felt like Adam was getting back to his Zodiac/Upright roots with the funky outfit and acoustic songs. LOVE.

  89. Isn’t that actually the song IIHY? There is that one line about
    “working my strut”, but that is not in the song “Strut” lol

    Yes it is! My mind was melted by the epicness of WLL! :-)

  90. I was there and I’ll tell you right now, acoustic WLL was the most amazing thing EVER!!!!

  91. Go to Ohmyrockgod.ning.com Doug is posting the videos from tonight. He just played WWL for us. I love, love WWL!!

  92. boys3girls0:

    I was there and I’ll tell you right now, acoustic WLL was the most amazing thing EVER!!!!

    I was there too. It was incredible. Just incredible. What a great show. He really does deserve to be a star.

    No encore. I don’t know if that was always the plan or not. A girl jumped on stage and started dancing with Tommy during DTRH, and then danced with Adam. Adam was annoyed as he told the security guard to get her off.

  93. Doug has it in HD but it’s going to take over 2 hours to upload. Can’t wait. He needs to do more music like that. Epic. So cool.

  94. Oh, WWL was unbelievable–like an acid trip. Can’t wait to hear the vids.Crowd was amazing. His costume was very Burning man/Zodiac. It was so great to be in a room with so many Adam lovers–what energy.

  95. itsjuls Adam Lambert will now forever own Whole Lotta Love. His acoustic performance of it tonight was pure genius.

    The whole show was amazing, I just wish it was longer.

  99. When you can take a song like that and arrange IN THE FREAKIN CAR on the way to the concert without practice, you are a F*cking Genius!!! ADAM LAMBERT rules!!! Wow! Just WOW!

    Your right, who arranges songs in their car on the way to a concert. It was beyond belief. I can’t believe this guy had to go on American Idol to get noticed. We have got to get him down South to our part of the country.

  102. Loved that SNL spoof. So funny.

    The Zodiac crew at the concert – what great support from his friends.

    Whole lotta love did it for me. I don’t even have words.

    :O

    SPEECHLESS

  105. Holy Crap, just watched WLL………WOW……Amazing. Closing my mouth now…WOW

  106. If any of you are still up, the videos are coming in! suz526 has posted quite a few on youtube already, and she’s good. Just go to her channel and you can see them all posted there.

    Here is Broken Open: http://www.youtube.com/user/suz526#p/u/4/1dn733Gu7Yw

    Ahhh it’s beautiful!! OMG Adam was awesome tonight! Love love love him.

  107. Just got home from Fantasy Springs. I agree with all the above posts. It was the most awsume concert I have ever see. Each and every song was totally unique and soul moving. Adam is truly a Rock God. I hope everyone has a chance to see him. It is a life changing experience. I am so happy and appreciative of all the videos that are popping up. Yikes, I need to go to sleep but finding it hard to let go. And to add to the fun tomorrow I am going to the Pantages in Hollywood to see Fantasia in the Color Purple. Be still my heart!!

  108. Truthiness:
    wish I had known u were going would have loved to have met u
    Just got back WLL was so epic
    my head is still spinning with his greatness what a fun night

  109. Oh man …stupid phone can’t gvet Suz526’s vid’s to work *cry*

  110. Ok retjenny, Cindij, and all you other lucky souls who got to go to Fantasy Springs (and there’s lots of you — I counted 15 MJ’s peeps who said they were going), you know that we need recaps, right? :-)

    You know, we Adam fans weather so many storms with him, but it’s performances like tonight that leave no question (in my mind at least) about how amazing, talented, and wonderful this guy really is. The acoustic songs were out of this world. And his strut during Strut? Perfect!

    I loved seeing him smile so broadly after each song– he was happy tonight. Must have been a relief to feel the strong support of his fans after the storms over the past week.

    And how lovely was that video with Isabel? He was so attentive and sweet to her.

    Ahh, my heart is full. Thanks Adam, as always.

    saga, I think it was you who said in another thread that we’re just going to have to get used to the sensationalism of the UK tabloid press. Sounds like you Brits have figured it out. Can you give us Americans a quick training in how to steel ourselves for what’s likely to come our way when Adam talks to the UK press over the next month? ;-)

  111. Just watching the videos now. Oh wow, I really need to see him live. I just loved the way the crowd went wild when he sang “it’s me, I’m a freak but thanks for loving me”. I got goosebumps (silly reaction, but whatever). I’m really happy his parents were there to hear it.

  112. Just watched WLL and I agree it is amazing and like someone pointed it out, its like being on an acid trip!! WOW WOW WOW.

    lso they played Voodoo and Can’t Let You Go – wow!!! They have to make these available for US purchase.

    Cool. How are these songs? have any live recordings emerged of these two songs?

  113. broken open and music again were great! my two favorites on the album.

    acoustic, WLL, though, yikes. that was painful dunno what he was thinking with that.

  114. Thanks for posting the vids MJ. WLL was all kinds of WOW … same for Broken Open. The more I hear IIHY the more I think it needs to be the next single. Adam looks like he has so much fun singing it. Loved his look last night too! Wish I could have been there.

  115. Next week there will be a DVD with all … LOL

    The guy from http://stickam.com/digitalfuton said he will make a DVD with the entire concert and party and interviews and that will be on his site in return for some donations

  116. From what i’ve heard i really LOOOOVE the VOODOO song. It should be on the album. RCA fail. It has La Roux-ish vibe, i really really love it. Can i download it somewhere?

  117. Broken Open is beautiful, even better than the cd version.

    I loved Fever, Strut, WLL, WDYWFM and Sleepwalker too.. :)

  118. Am just now going to watch the youtubes. There was a live-stream for a time during the night (where I am) so I heard/saw WLL and a couple others. Epic for all.
    The Isabel/Adam meet was so touching. With that music in the background I just melted. Why can’t the media pick up on this stuff
    instead of the other garbage?
    Oh, and one of the very few times there were no fingerless gloves.

  119. Sounds like it was epic. I don’t go to that many concerts, but I will go to see Adam if/when he comes to Chicago.

    You lucky people getting to see his first, real gig! What an experience.

  120. I haven’t seen many vids posted, but I have to say: Adam sounds amazing on the couple I’ve spotted.

    He needs to get out there and start doing more concerts asap.

    Edit: oh – all of a sudden there are loads more! I’ll have to check them out too!

  121. What a great thing to wake up to! WLL and Broken Open were amazing!

    I loved the feathers his ‘witchy’ Indio clothes. What a treat for the audience, I can’t wait until he’s in my town (or anywhere on the East Coast!)

  122. Quick question, did he actually sing Can’t Let Go and Voodoo, or were they just played on the speakers before the show?

  123. Quick question, did he actually sing Can’t Let Go and Voodoo, or were they just played on the speakers before the show?

    They just played them, they didn’t perform any of them. Crowd warm-up!

  124. I am still upset that my flight was canceled and I missed this! Looks like everyone had fun. Adam’s look is very pretty but I don’t think he is wearing any nail polish??? Maybe he decided that he had enough color going with all the feathers, ect.

    Loved WLL and Broken Open. Acoustic lets the beauty of his voice come through.

    He seemed to be a bit more in control of his ultra sexy moves. Do you think this was in honor of Isabelle and the kids in the audience. I loved his Kradison performance because he knew he could really go wild with only adults in the audience. Can’t wait till he does another 21 and over venue.

  125. Fantastic concert! WLL is just WOW! Never thought i would like the song acoustic but I DO! Broken Open is fantastic too! He should do more concerts.

  126. So what songs so far haven’t we seen? Loaded Smile, Aftermath and PUU? Ah, there TFM also… but they need to change the arrangement of that one if they ever want to perform it.

    Ahhhh Master Plan also!

  127. Haha I think Adam is losing his touch , cuz I think I only saw 1, What was he thinking. Haha anyway just watche WLL agaqin for the billionth time maybe I can move on to the other ones…..not sure if I can yet

  128. Haven’t watched videos yet….wanted to read comments….:-)

    I think I will save WLL for last.!!!

  129. I don’t remember ever hearing about a song called “Can’t Let You Go.” (Or is it “Can’t Let Go”?) Who wrote that?

  130. I don’t remember ever hearing about a song called “Can’t Let You Go.” (Or is it “Can’t Let Go”?) Who wrote that?

    It’s a bonus track on the international edition. I think it was written by Adam and Greg Wells but I am not sure… I know Wells produced it but Adam might not have been a co write on it…

    It’s apparently an alt rock/indie track.

  131. Wow he sounded amazing last night on all his songs but the accoustic WLL and Broken Open where just Jaw dropping and I still think Sure Fire Winners should be the next single. That was my favorite all out full rock song. His voice….I have no words that would do it justice IMHO

  132. Btw, does anyone have a recording of “Can’t Let You Go”? A snippet or something?

  133. Ahhhh Master Plan also!

    Good point Where was Master Plan wasn’t that suppose to be the encore song according to the leaked song list. I was really looking forward to that song. Maybe they never did an encore because of the woman who got on stage. Darn it

  134. Okay, I’ll let other comment on how beautiful Adam sounded, especially during the accoustic songs.

    I just wanna add how much I appreciated his trippy-hippie (tye-dye pants), retro-rock (feather shoulder padded jacket), glammy (sheer sleeve, bat wings), hard rock (as in rings made of actual big rocks), shaman/tribal (hair feathers, “survivor” style necklace) style last nite. Living up to his fashion motto, “More is more.”

  135. Just finished watching the videos. I am on the floor and my computer is down here with me. I thought Strut was fantastic. I think now this should be his next single. That’ll probably change though. Also WWFM and Sleepwalker. Broken open were great. No words for WLL…just amazing. I also was checking on which songs he hasn’t sung yet too. I love TFM. Wonder if he’ll EVER sing it live and in what type of “arena”. Didn’t notice the no nail polish…have to go back and look…couldn’t take my eyes off of his eyes. I noticed too the dudes in front of the person taking most of these videos. Love that. I think we’ll see more of them at the shows. Really seemed like a great mix of people.
    I truly think these shows are a warm-up for what the tour would be like. Small costume changes here…getting rid of wings and shoulder feathers, then change to Zodiac garb. Loved all of it. The tour I think will be over the top (in a good way) with costumes, dancers, backup singers…just like he said. Encores too. They are testing the waters and the temperature is fine!!!

  136. From what I heard of that song Voodoo boy it sounded great! I can’t wait until it is available. I listened to it with good earphones and wow! I really want it!
    On a really shallow note, Adam’s ass sure looked fine in those pants!

  137. I truly think these shows are a warm-up for what the tour would be like. Small costume changes here…getting rid of wings and shoulder feathers, then change to Zodiac garb. Loved all of it.

    I wish he had time to rehearse in some new songs. The set felt a bit short to me, would be nice if he could play a 2 hour set. I mean he has 4-6 songs that he hasn’t performed that he could toss in there without doing covers.

  138. “I noticed too the dudes in front of the person taking most of these videos.”
    From the vids and twitter comments there was a very good mix of fans at the venue. I couldn’t believe how many men I saw!

  139. holy shit, no words, just no words. what a freaking voice. im so glad he keeps impressing ppl left and right. acoustic wwfm, wll? dead.

  140. I think Can’t Let You Go is a Greg Wells/Claude Kelly collaboration (maybe Adam has a co-write? don’t know). I really can’t wait to hear this one.

    Just getting through all the videos now—WLL is amazing and Broken Open is simply stunning!

    I am still waiting to hear PUU; will he ever perform it live?

  141. Beautiful!! Thanks so much for this “Happy Sunday Morning to Me!”

    I’ve only watched WLL and SFW. Loved them both. WLL was beautifully original, and for reasons I can’t fully explain, it confirmed for me my long held suspicion that Adam really is Freddie reincarnated. :-)

    I do believe that SFW will be my favorite live performance off FYE. It’s not even close to my fav recorded, but something about it live really moves me.

    Way to go, Adam!

    BTW, I really couldn’t hear VooDoo. I hope a better audio surfaces.

    ETA: But then again, I do SO LOVE Strut and Fever! Damn tough to pick a fav, guess I’ll just have to enjoy them all. Poor me. :-)

  142. bridget…you are a hoot regarding his “garb”. I think you covered all of it. His boots looked the ones he wears quite a bit. I think he wore them on Idol too. I like these better than the long pointy toed ones that he could trip on. And yes aa618892…his butt looked magnificent! I’m so shallow but I embrace it!!!!

    So anyone have the video for Down the Rabbit Hole?

  143. Ok that Soaked performance was stellar and he really looked great. I usually am not a fan of his fully decked out looks but I have to say beautiful.

  144. I love SFW…it’s one of my favorites on the CD, but any song I think I don’t like, I watch him perform it live, and I’m hooked. I wasn’t a big fan of Sleepwalker until I saw him do it on stage.

    I could watch him sing Fever all the time. That needs to get to radio darn it. I haven’t even finished the videos yet, but I had to catch my breath.

    The set felt a bit short to me

    Me too. I’m sure we will get longer sets when he goes out on tour.

  145. Well, Good Morning indeed. Thanks for the great vids.
    Sensual as hell. Vocals amazing, as always.

  146. Universe! Hear my plea, let there be a mad world and down the rabbit hole vid! Oh, thanks mj for these. You’re the best.

  147. That acoustic set is just amazing. Boken Open is freaking breathtaking! I didn’t think it could possibly be more beautiful live than the recorded version but it was. It left me breathless! I can’t wait for Soaked!

  148. I couldn’t wait…just watched WLL. I think I’m dead. Seriously, who sings like that live nowadays?? His voice at 3:30 mark is INSANE!!!!! That song was like taking a psychedelic trip to the ’60s or ’70s. His voice is its own drug. MY GOD – I don’t know if I’ll survive seeing him on his own live.

    Wait until luv sees these. :-)

  149. Isn’t an hour set about standard for casino shows? It was thirteen songs, I wouldn’t really call that short. Also I think not having an encore can make a show seem short just because people have come to expect them and feel cheated when they don’t get one. Maybe he should have just performed his last song as an “encore” and it would have been more satisfying…

  150. This was such a different vibe from RMT. It was less overtly sexual but soooo sensual and intense. F****k! My mind is seriously blown! Where did someone see a vid of Soaked?

  151. I’ve only watched WLL and SFW. Loved them both. WLL was beautifully original, and for reasons I can’t fully explain, it confirmed for me my long held suspicion that Adam really is Freddie reincarnated.

    I’m still hoping he meets with Queen on his trip to the UK. It’s a fantasy of mine.

  152. That WLL had such a different sexual vibe. It is going on my makeout playlist! Can’t wait to try it out!

  153. I wish he had time to rehearse in some new songs. The set felt a bit short to me, would be nice if he could play a 2 hour set. I mean he has 4-6 songs that he hasn’t performed that he could toss in there without doing covers.

    I think it’s just because the time flies by. :)

    How many songs did he do? I counted 11 – with no encore. Someone posted Cook’s setlist from Morongo and he did 10 songs (which included one duet with Carly) and 2 in his encore. Not much of a difference.

    ETA: Oops. Will and I cross-posted and he said 13 songs. Let’s see (in no order): FYE, IIHY, SFW, MW, WWFM, BO, Strut, Fever, MA, WLL and DTRH. Did I get that right?

    ETAA: Forgot SW and Soaked. Total of 13, one more than DC.

  154. Yes, those are mine. I have WLL, Soaked, Strut, Sleepwalker, Broken Open, and Mad World up now. Enjoy!

    If it hasn’t been said enough yet, last night was friggin epic!!

    I hope i was ok to post? Thank you for excellent videos! Do you have DTRH?

  155. I think it’s just because the time flies by. :)

    I just want Maste Plan and PUU dammit! I don’t like Loaded Smile so I won’t miss it. I wouldn’t mind hearing Aftermath or TFM but they are not high on my list. MP and PUU are very high on my list…

  156. Ok if I haven’t said it before he sounded awesome last night. I think the best all around he has ever (and he has has some pretty frigging amazing performances) sounded. His voice was so clean and yet haunting. He sounded as amazing on the ballads as he did on the up beat songs. This was the best live vocal of FYE he has done. (If only he sounded like this on his AMA version) Bravo Adam Bravo and Thank you to MJ and everyone who posted videos pics and posts. Epic simply Epic

  157. How many songs did he do? I counted 11 – with no encore.

    No it was thirteen, the ten MJ posted above plus three others.

  158. ETA: Oops. Will and I cross-posted and he said 13 songs. Let’s see (in no order): FYE, IIHY, SFW, MW, WWFM, BO, Strut, Fever, MA, WLL and DTRH. Did I get that right?

    You missed Sleepwalker and Soaked. So 13 but I wanted 20 :-) greedy I know!

  159. If peeps think a show is too short then they had a good time!!!!

    I thought 13 songs were good a good number.

    He’s so sensual on WLL and his voice goes so high and low. He is a master showman! Bravo, bravo. Now go to Foxwoods dammit!!!!

  160. Oh btw for those who went last night how was the opening act. I hope the audience was kind and supportive. Was she any good?

  161. Well the look is unusual. It’ll be interesting to see what gigs he gets after the Canada casinos. They might decide to add on to that and do a full fledged tour of Canada. So whoever had Canadian casinos in the pool for Adam’s first tour might be a winner.

    Looks like his trademark song will be sexed up version of WLL. Can’t decide if that’s good or bad.

  162. A couple of people that twittered from the show last night said “something weird is going on between Adam and Tommy”. During the show as well as not either of them showing up for the after party. No one could put a finger on it. Probably nothing.

  163. Looks like his trademark song will be sexed up version of WLL. Can’t decide if that’s good or bad.

    Positive feedback always seems to be good IMHO. But I sort of disagree I think his trademark is becoming the slower ballad songs (Soaked, Broken Open, Mad Word, Bluesy WLL) then his more dynamic songs. I still think SFW is the best live song he does. But have to say the Bluesy/Jazzy arrangement of WLL was spectacular.

    As far as the look I actually like it. Which is strange as I don’t usually like his OTT looks but for some reason this one worked. :-)

  164. Weird in what way? Could it be that Tommy’s parents were there and they both thought they should not do as much “teasing” as they normally would during a performance. They may have both wanted to spend time with their perspective parents after the show.

  165. As far as the look I actually like it. Which is strange as I don’t usually like his OTT looks but for some reason this one worked. :-)

    This is my favorite Adam look yet! I’ve never thought he looked more gorgeous!

  166. saga and adamized…sounds plausible to me. Some people wanted a real sexed up show, but Adam adjusted to the audience of family. IMO

  167. saga:

    I hope i was ok to post? Thank you for excellent videos! Do you have DTRH?

    Not a problem at all! I didn’t get DTRH, unfortunately. After trying to tape and dance during Strut, I switched to taping only the slow songs. My DTRH would have been shakier than The Blair Witch Project.

  168. To my West Coast sisters who provided these videos: a most heartfelt THANK YOU. As we East Coast folks are surviving our upteenth snow storm, the HEAT from these performances is most needed. WLL is absolutely incredible. The guy is a legend. :)

  169. I thought 13 songs were good a good number

    Cook only sang 11 songs last night, so getting 13 from Adam was a good number. David and his band have done 150+ shows together so they had plenty of songs to choose from.
    I think this is pretty standard for a casino show. BTW, Fantasy Springs sent out information at the very first of the ticket sale that said it was going to be a 50- minute set.

  170. Thanks MJ and to everyone who posted videos to keep us informed. I wish I could have heard him in person. Even through a cell phone upload his voice is incredible.

  171. Set list of songs in order (pretty sure).
    1. FYE
    2. IIHY
    3. Strut
    4. SFW
    5. Soaked
    6. WWFM
    7. Mad World
    8. Broken Open
    9. WLL
    10. Music Again
    11. Sleepwalker
    12. Fever
    13. Down The Rabbit Hole

    Followed twitterers and watched some live-stream. And wrote them down in order too.

  172. Ah yes, FINALLY I hear what Adam was trying to do with the FYE vocal at the AMAs. TBH, I was never quite sure before now. Too bad he didn’t quite nail it there. But here, yes indeedy. Better late than never. ;-) Bravo Adam!

    And I too love the look(s). But then again, I’m easy where he’s (or pretty much anybody’s) concerned. I just enjoy consuming his looks, not so much looking to judge or rank them. Hee. :-)

  173. Both Cook and Adam’s sets seem short but that’s probably the rule for casino shows. The point is to get the audience back into the casino to gamble. To put it politely, I have seen pics of the Glambly and many of Adam’s fans are the same age group as the Soul Patrol I KNOW he also has younger fans but he does have a large group of older fans. Not that that’s bad but it is interesting.

    Interesting for who? Let people be whatever age they wanna be, this obsession is a bit weird. Most people said it was a fairly mixed crowd. I thought concerts usually have a mixed crowd?

  175. Great videos! Thanks for sharing them!

    I found the setlist kinda short for a concert, but maybe it is the venue? I’m used to seeing a 20-22 song setlist with a 1 to 2 song encore, so maybe that’s why it feels short to me.

    Adam did a great job nonetheless!

  176. Hello everyone!!!

    I was away for a week and I can’t keep up with anything!!!!

    These pics look amazing- and I can’t wait to watch all the performances already!!! Looks like Adam in all his Zodiacabulous glory! Woooooooohoooo!

  177. If him and his band don’t perform acoustically on TV soon, they’re officially silly.

    He needs to wear this attire with the turquoize makeup and all the jewelry, the pants and the thin loose top (all fabulous & flattering) and sing acoustically on Idol.

    I never got into his AOL performances, especially with the unflattering lighting, and just his voice in general.

    Everything HERE however, was perfect for him, he looked and sounded really flawless.

    He found his balance. Everything kind of just came together.

  178. Most Pop artists have fans in their 20s. Idol contestants have many middle aged fans. I think Adam has many senior fans just like Taylor Hicks a very different artist. And as long as fans can buy a ticket but don’t dedicate their lives to stalking him with flat Adams, no problem. :)

  179. um…I thought of something clever to say but I’m still very much affected by Adam’s sensual and powerful performance of WLL last night.
    wow just wow.

  180. If he sounds that good on a homemade video uploaded through a cell phone or home camera I can’t imagine just how good he must sound live. I saw him on the AI tour and he had the crowd eating out of his hand. I think he is going to change his concert up depending on where he was playing. Note the outfit he had on last night – it was a nod to Indio.

  181. I think he should be on SNL. Did you see the parady they did. It’s posted on YouTube. It’s hysterical. It says something like We are the world part 2 to aid in the disaster of We are the World part one. THey were making fun of the people that were selected this go around to sing We Are The World. 90% of them no one heard of. So they had actors dress up as the people they thought should have sung in it. It was an all star list. Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Willie Nelson and Adam Lambert. A must see.

  182. To put it politely, I have seen pics of the Glambly and many of Adam’s fans are the same age group as the Soul Patrol I KNOW he also has younger fans but he does have a large group of older fans.

    http://www.kesq.com/Global/story.asp?S=12058801

    Based on the crowd the Glamily Reunion attracted, the review linked above referred to Adam’s fanbase as being women over 40. In the comments, though, a poster made the valid point that younger people like herself likely couldn’t afford the cost of show tickets plus the cost of the pre-party. I just kind of assumed that the pre-party was for the people traveling into and staying at hotels in the area, and most of the people doing that would likely be a little older, in my opinion. Posters on the review articles and tweeters last night indicate that the actual concert crowd was pretty diverse, with a mix of women and men (but more women)and fans ranging from 10-90 (but most in their 20’s – 40’s range). Sounds like the beginning of a healthy fan base to me!

  183. Wow he looked and sounded amazing. I loved hearing Broken Open and WWL in particuliar. I agree this is the best FYE, he has performed live. It is sad he didn’t sing it like this at the AMA he would have sold alot more albums IMO for his first week.

  184. Why the obsession with the age of adams audience for his first casino show in a resort town? I went to see the black eyed peas the other night. The opening acts were lmfao ludacris and david guetta. At least half the audience, if not more, was over 40. I was surprised bc I thought it would skew younger. Nope, it was a predominantly over 35/40 audience. As long as his songs are played on pop radio, bought on itunes and watched on vh1,mtv and vevo who cares?

  185. I am so greedy. Hope somebody got DTRH. Thanks everyone who taped the show for us to enjoy! It made my weekend.

  186. So I was at the show. It was AMAZING!!! He was on fire, great vocals and energy! Crowd was fun and really diverse group. Lots of guys and girls of all ages all jumping and dancing and singing! WLL was insane! I literally felt I could die after hearing that! Broken Open and Soaked and MW were gorgeous! Fever was so fun! He looked beautiful with the feathers and fur. I literally never wanted it to end!! Can’t wait to see him again!

    Yeah, I am not getting the 20 something concert crowd… not sure where that comes from. Festivals, yes, that’s probably true.

  188. I floved all the vids – thanks to everyone and MJ for posting so quickly.

    I read alot of comments suggesting his fans are SOLELY over 40 somethings and I tend to think it is relative to the venue.
    Here at Fantasy Springs the tickets (and Glamily pre get-togethers) were pricey and the venue caters to only 21+ so you are going to see pictures of people who can afford to buy, buy some more and travel and stay (did I say buy more) to see Adam.
    In a venue like the Canada TV show vids we saw, teens were flailing to see/hear Adam.
    And in the iheartradio videos young and older.
    -relative to the group.

    fans are fans, full house/sold out is what it is. Great videos showcasing his talent, wonderful.

    He will just keep getter bigger and bigger in the world as an artist.

    Again FLOVE the videos!

  189. guys, I recorded most of the show including DTRH but unfortunately can’t upload for a few days when I get back home.

  190. MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARY!

    You need to upload DTRH!!! We’re missing it. Kidnap someone with internet next to you…

    um…I thought of something clever to say but I’m still very much affected by Adam’s sensual and powerful performance of WLL last night.
    wow just wow

    Well said LeHomeAdam. I feel exactly the same way. We got home a 2:00 am and now (11:00am pctime) I am leaving to see Fantasia in the Color Purple at the Pantages in L.A. What a hell of a weekend!!!!!

  192. Just saw this on Twitter:

    justcallmehorse

    U are getting smarter. yes, Camila Grey will be taking over keyboards 4 Adam as I depart. My last performance will be on Leno Tuesday. 21 minutes ago via web

    justcallmehorse

    Lisa left. Zac took over while he was available. Cam is up next. 15 minutes ago via web

  193. WLL reminds me of a glammed up Jim Morrison vibe. It was sexy and fantastic…..just WOW

  194. So I was at the show. It was AMAZING!!! He was on fire, great vocals and energy! Crowd was fun and really diverse group. Lots of guys and girls of all ages all jumping and dancing and singing! WLL was insane! I literally felt I could die after hearing that! Broken Open and Soaked and MW were gorgeous! Fever was so fun! He looked beautiful with the feathers and fur. I literally never wanted it to end!! Can’t wait to see him again!

    I agree with every word. The crowd was very diverse and there were a lot of men which I was happy to see. When he started WLL, I turned to my sister and was like ‘omg I love this’. Seriously every song was gorgeous. I was happy his parents were there, they saw their son perform an awesome show.

  195. Thanks MJ for posting all of these great videos. Such a Sunday morning feast! What a fantastic show.

    I’m curious about the Glamily reunion event, too. Did some you from MJ’s go, and did you get a chance to actually meet each other?

    ITA! Looks like a pretty diverse crowd to me:

    http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/7783/adammomdad.jpg

    Notice Adam’s badass parents. His mom has feathers on her top and his dad is in a black rocker T. LOL

  197. Adam’s mom is more beautiful than ever. Her hair is getting longer and it’s so shiny. She is one hot mamma. His dad ain’t chopped liver either!

  198. Wow!! What a night !! I just got home and I’m still on a high. We had a lady in our row that flew in from Canada just for the day.
    I have to agree with everyone that WLL was unbelievable. It was mesmerizing. My sister looked at me and said he is teasing us and I said this is foreplay.
    The pre concert party was nicely put together but mainly women of a certain age. Just like me.
    The concert was filled with every age group and sex. We had a couple in front of us and the husband said he came to support his wife.
    By the end of the concert, he was a fan. Adam was in his element. He is what has been missing in music for a very long time.
    Oh and I forgot to mention the husband is a biker dude and now is a Adam fan.
    Going to watch video now. Later…….

  199. Yeah, I am not getting the 20 something concert crowd… not sure where that comes from. Festivals, yes, that’s probably true.

    Or maybe for the Jonas Brothers or Miley???
    I really believe that this ‘wide range appeal’ is part of Adam’s master plan for success in the music industry. He began by doing something for everyone on Idol — pop, rock, ballads, etc…..
    That worked! This ‘mixed’ trend continued with his debut album. That worked, too! We know that Adam is very smart and knows what he is doing. The glam thing he has going on is very appealing to many of his “older” fans. They are the ones who remember David Bowie from the 70’s. I would think any musician would be thrilled to have this wide range of appeal.
    Adam loves all of his fans unconditionally…… :)

  200. Videos are great!!! Adam is the best thing AI have ever produced. Adam, please, keep rocking!!! You are awesome!!! AMA was a learning experience, it’s all behind now. Hope he has a new single soon.

  201. So now I’ve seen them all, and I am dying….

    I just kept thinking “Ziggy Stardust”…. this guy is literally Ziggy that Bowie was singing of, and Monte and LP and Tommy are his Spiders from Mars…

    His WLL, surprisingly, was as closest to Robert Plant as I’ve ever seen it, not as in copycat (at all!), but as in that he seemed so inherently confident of his sexuality, and just like Plant was, with the low-cut tight jeans and all…

    I wasn’t born yet in the 70’s, but I am completely inamoured with some of what went on back then, that I am so excited that someone like Adam came along to revive it, while at the same time mixing it with current art…

    I am saving my pennies for whenever he comes around my parts…

    Oh- and last thing- Broken Open is my favourite song on the album, and hearing it sung live for the first time tonight, I realized that this artist is really here to stay. He really isn’t “just” an amazing performer. He’s a full-fledged artist, including songwriter. That song is already classic to me, and his voice was just magical.

  202. Well, I think that “mixed age” for a typical concert is more like teens through 30s/40’s with the occasional older person. Unless the act is a nostolgia type act that peaked 30 years ago.

    But for a new act just hitting the charts now, having a lot of people over 40 is unusual. That’s why it gets attention.

    But is not unusual for acts coming off idol. The show has a lot of viewers over 40, so that’s what happens.

    Casino shows are 21 and over.

    But is not unusual for acts coming off idol

    True!

  204. Ok seriously I think they need to pull the WLL videos from yt……..cuz I can’t stop watching it, i’m at work and I really should be doing my job.

  205. I prefer to think he is JUST THAT GOOD, and that is why all ages are simply CRAZY about Adam! No way that can be anything but excellent! All the explanations about Elvis are that many adults thought he was to be banned for his sexually explicit gyrations, as they called it, or simply they didn’t “get” him, so 50’s kids loved that most of their parents couldn’t stand him, and many grandmothers were simply aghast. Those kids are now the grandmothers, so of course they are going to LOVE Adam…their frame of reference is just so, so different. They aren’t going to all of a sudden get stuffy if they once loved Elvis and his contemporaries. Times really have changed. Age does not matter. Everyone who wants to adore Adam should be allowed to do so in peace! Those young people following Elvis are now the older people, but still young-at-heart, so cheers to them for having the good taste they have exhibited by loving Adam. An artist can never have too many people love and support him. Adam is epic. Thanks to MJ and all those who attended for making our day with videos and pictures. Adam is a star. We are so fortunate to exist right now in the age of Adam and have him throw a little glow from his light our way. He is special beyond belief.

  206. OMG dcglam, thanks for DTRH! SO MUCH FUN!!! It’s really fantastic to see him have so much fun, just being himself. Really fantastic!

  207. OMG…DTRH is now my favorite performance from last night!!! (at least for the moment). That bodyguard was a big guy. Thank you big guy bodyguard!!! They gotta watch out for him better. Looks like she came out from backstage. They are everywhere. Thanks (I think) dcglam for finding this. Now my day off where I was cleaning is now interrupted….again!!!
    edit: actually can’t tell where the chick came from . She just appeared.

  208. Tiger92……yes most Casino shows are 21 and older but last night if you were under 18 you had to be with an adult. Yet David Cooks concert down the block last night you had to be 21

  209. Okay – I still haven’t seen them all (real life intruded) but his strut during “Strut” – how many men could look so fierce while struting like that!! LMAO OMG – I love this man so much!!! So much fun to follow around!!

    He is definately getting better the more he sings these songs. He seems so much more comfortable with them. I’m not sure what to watch next!!

  210. To tell you the show was “great” would not be doing it justice… He was incredible… I think if I had to pick my favorite number it had to be WLL…. First of all I was surprised it was a part of his set…secondly.. ACOUSTIC.. IT BLEW my brain away.. OMG.. I mean… I was unable to form coherent words after that number.. it was amazing. His whole acoustic section was great.. Sleepwalker, WWFM, Broken Open, Soaked… so beautiful.. I loved it! So worth the 3 1/2 hour drive in the rain..and in crazy traffic. : D

  211. Andysgirl:

    WLL reminds me of a glammed up Jim Morrison vibe. It was sexy and fantastic…..just WOW

    YES YES YES to this!!!!

  212. The whole show was awesome but WLL was definitely a pinnacle if not the peak. I was lucky to be there as we live only 40 miles away and I feel like I won the lottery that we lived close enough to go. If he’s not a star, there is no explanation.

  213. The most amazing this to me about this whole show was Adam switch WLL to acoustic on the drive over to Indio. He said band never rehearsed it, and he said he rehearsed it on the drive over. That performance was improvised for the most part.

    Also, my guess is that Master Plan is coming up at some point in the future because it was on the rehearsal song list that Doug tweeted.

  214. Just recovered from this concert from last night! – man it was insanelly good. Since I don’t twitter well or video-tape well, I didn’t offer… I went to just enjoy it, and boy did I ever enjoy this one. Two things really stood out acoustic WLL and all the “blue hair” people. My daughter, 18, was the youngest as far as we could see, on the way in though there was a 13 year old with her mom. Adam’s vocals were (and are) out of this world, well from Planet Fierce. And he truly was a glitter alien yesterday, very very beautiful. My daughter said he was cute, because he was so feminine – duh!
    The whole acoustic section was so mesmerizing, I am still swooning…
    Also people came from EVERYWHERE, next to me from Oakland, behind me from Vancouver and (get this) from Taiwan!! Flew in just for that 1h and 10 min concert -CRAZY.
    But I get it, once you’ve heard him life, you’re hooked for life, if you aren’t already….. :)

  215. So happy you enjoyed it GreenHippo!!! The acoustic WLL seems totally out of this world.

  216. awww he looked so happy and excited at the end of DTRH. And his hug with Monte – they’ve probably been through so much together. So exciting!! So happy for him!!

  217. Does anyone know what he said by the end of Rabbit Hole?
    “please don´t drink the envelope and marry?”
    If I got it right… OMG he´s so funny!
    Loved everything about the performances!!
    Adam when are you coming to Brazil???
    Can´´t wait!

  218. oh and we got “kicked out” of the Glamily party, b/c my daughter wasn’t 21 yet. But they let us in at the beginning, they forgot to check her ID. ooops!! We didn’t know it was 21 and over only, somehow I never figured that out before hand. Well, they gave us our money back. From what I saw and heard afterwards it wasn’t that impressive anyway.
    the most important thing was Adam live!!!
    I also did really enjoy the girl in the opening act, she had a great voice, however her outfit made her look like she just escaped from prison. Anyone got her name? something like Tamra something?

She describes her music as “thought provoking, hopeful, playful, and honest,” and expects to release her first album on Interscope records in 2010

  221. Casino shows are 21 and over.

    My post was a response to the assertion upthread that older concert goes are typical – even in casinos. I was just saying there’s older, then there’s OLDER, and Adam’s (like many Idol’s) concert crowds are indeed different than the typical. Pop radio is generally aimed at 12-25, and HAC tends to aim for 25-early 40s. So people in that range showing up for a pop/HAC act is pretty normal. But a significant amount of people at Adam’s concert were older than that, so it will get attention. That’s the way it is to me… he’s from Idol.

    Of course that can change over time, its just no use trying to run from it now, you know? It is what it is. YMMV.

  222. I haven’t watched all of them

    but
    OMFAAAAAAAA HE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ADAMAZING.IS ACPUSTIC ELL EVEN POSSIBLE? ONLY IF UR ADAM!!! HE IS FANTASTIC!!! I’M LIKE CRYING AT HIW DAMN AMAZING HE IS.WOW.THIS IS SOOOOOO GOOD.AND THIS IS WHY IM A FAN FOR LIFEEEEEEE.FLAILFLAIL.I HAVE TO SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.DAMNIT,ADAM,HOW R U SO PERFECT??? I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW THAT I FU*KING LOVE ADAM MITCHEL LAMBERT!!!!!!!!

    …and maybe it’s better for my health that i’m not allowed to go to a concert ;)

  223. Of course that can change over time, its just no use trying to run from it now, you know? It is what it is. YMMV.

    You are right — it is what it is. However, I have no problem with things as they are right now. Adam is doing just fine!

    By the way, I must admit that I have this thing about hats (good, sexy thing). Just love me some Adam in a hat!!! :)

    LOL — Yes, I did hear a bit of ‘I love you’ going on.
    What an awesome daughter you have!! Please tell her that she has great taste and that I love him, too!

  229. Adam must officially be a musical genius now. I couldn’t get the acoustic Whole Lotta Love on my ipod fast enough.

  230. I think at the end of DTRH Adam said “Drink, gamble and be merry”. But I could be wrong I am watching these on my phone. Can’t wait till I get home to wacth them on my computer.

  231. I haven’t watched all the videos yet…just “Down The Rabbit Hole,” “Music Again,” and “If I Had You.” I have the biggest smile on my face! I love stanning Adam. Not only is he incredibly talented, he’s so, so fun! :D

  232. I watched some of the clips from gridlock,anthrogeek takes great videos

    I AM BLOWN AWAY

    I’ve seen everything except voodoo..preparing myself for a new song :]

    New videos coming, very HQ. They are being uploaded as we speak

    Ohhhhh…..that WLL is just wonderful. So clear!!! Can’t wait to see the rest of her/his videos.

    ETA: that Sleepwalker video – the HQ one from anthrogeekPF – OMFG! The look he gives straight to the camera when he is singing “After the way you love me”
    THUD

  235. Amazing concert last night! WLL was epic. The crowd was a good mix…which was a massive relief after the complete and utter freakiness that was hanging out in the hotel lobby. (So incredibly embarrassing!! It was like some bad 80s hair metal groupie reunion.) I’d have to say that it was at least 40% male!! I also saw young and old and a number of gay couples. Most, if not all of the people we heard yelling “I love you Adam!” were men.

    The desert/casino crowd always skews older. It’s the demo (on top of the Idol demo). We ran into some “snowbirds” that go to every single one of these shows at the casino. One woman said that Adam’s concert was by far the youngest crowd she’s ever seen at the casino. LMAO.

    Overall, not too shabby on zero promo, but I am looking forward to concerts in bigger cities. All of the last minute tickets I put up for sale after the LA news publicized the concert drew a really young, diverse group. Can’t wait to see them next time.

    The audio on this “Broken Open” video is fantastic! Wow, what a beautiful song. Don’t ever stop writing with Greg Wells, Adam.

    WOW, just gorgeous!

  237. Hi everyone!

    Loved, loved, loved the entire set. I live in L.A. Waited too long and sold out! My husband said to just go and try to get tickets especially since the east coasters were snowed in. i’m a planner and didn’t act spontaneously and am now kicking myself. I missed out on this once in a lifetime epicness. His whole “indio” vibe with the flowy, feathery costume – and then the hat just sealed the deal!
    The world will snatch him up and tickets next time around will be well over $500.00 for a decent seat. I missed my opportunity and I now will go pull myself out of depression…However, I knew I could count on some incredible videos so thank you to all who posted those amazing quality videos. Here’s to the new reign of rock, roll and glam! All hail King Adam!

    To put it politely, I have seen pics of the Glambly and many of Adam’s fans are the same age group as the Soul Patrol I KNOW he also has younger fans but he does have a large group of older fans.

    http://www.kesq.com/Global/story.asp?S=12058801

    Based on the crowd the Glamily Reunion attracted, the review linked above referred to Adam’s fanbase as being women over 40. In the comments, though, a poster made the valid point that younger people like herself likely couldn’t afford the cost of show tickets plus the cost of the pre-party. I just kind of assumed that the pre-party was for the people traveling into and staying at hotels in the area, and most of the people doing that would likely be a little older, in my opinion. Posters on the review articles and tweeters last night indicate that the actual concert crowd was pretty diverse, with a mix of women and men (but more women)and fans ranging from 10-90 (but most in their 20’s – 40’s range). Sounds like the beginning of a healthy fan base to me!

    I was there center stage 11th row and believe me the audience was diverse, kids from 8 years old up, a lot of teens, and what got me was the amount of younger guys and specifically 3 marines two rows ahead of me who were comped the tickets. They had no idea what they were in for and by the end of the night were yelling, clapping, dancing and completely enjoying the music and the singing. The sheriffs’ I spoke to all agreed the VOICE was amazing and none of these macho men were freaked out about Adam Lambert’s attire and makeup by the end of that mandated hour long concert.

    I was so happy to be at Adam’s first solo concert and doubt that those of us living in SoCal will ever be able to get fantastic tickets like that again so easily.

  239. I only guess that Adam’s record company is paying attention to the fact that Adam can sale out his concerts rather quickly. They have to be liking the fact he has fans all around the world willing to come all the way to the States to see him in concert. I think their are a lot of people like myself, who would pay extra to see a great singer, because there are not a lot out there. I just wonder when they are going to announce his touring dates in the U.S and certainly Canada.

  240. Thanks MJ for posting this and thanks to all of the people who took videos. My daughter and I had a great time watching them and giving each other our “Adam what the heck” look when he surprised us. He was awesome!

    We are anxiously awaiting his tour near us! :)

  241. Adam’s eyes were absolutely gorgeous.

    How funny when that chick got on stage and Adam never missed a beat dancing with her. I thought she was part of the show at first until security guided her off stage.

  242. I bet his parents are so proud. I feel super happy for them. Must be amazing to have a child prodigy, and see things falling in place for said child. I just listened to “Soaked”, which was beautiful.

  243. Gotta say that DTRH was my absolute favorite. So full of EXTRA energy I thought. Also am crazy about that version of WLL. There are no words that haven’t already been used to describe how truly great this concert was. The band’s celebration at the end was heartwarming–hugs,backslaps, etc. They knew they killed it.

    Thanks everyone for taking care of those of us who couldn’t be there. We appreciate the videos and comments from all. Thanks MJ.

  244. Thanks for all the videos! I still can’t get over how amazing he sounds live. I played a couple of them for my mom, and she kept insisting that he must be lip-synching, saying, “Isn’t that what they all do these days?”

  245. Again thank you MJ and all who posted videos on Youtube and here. I have watched every video (more then once) and I felt like I was there. I get so engrossed in the performances. I am glad MJ posted the set list I have started watching the videos in that order and it makes you feel more like you are part of this amazing talents first real introduction to the world. I think this was the real Adam and that is why is was so frigging good. Damn the guy can entertain and draw you in. The band is great too. Monte and the drummer really stand out. I wish Tommy would develop some moves instead of just walking back and forth but I don’t want him out of the band. It does add to the coolness of it. The new keyboard player looks like she will fit in and add to the band. I miss Lisa but I think the new girl will be great. Did I mention how much I loved these performance. Because I do. :mrgreen:

  246. ok I have decided that Adam’s Whole Lotta Love acoustic version is the Bolero (by Ravel’s) of the new Millennium. ;-)

  247. Thank you for posting the videos from Adam’s concert.

    These are really great, especially WWL. Adam is, as someone already mentioned, like sharman or medium for music. I’m not a concertgoer, but I must go to his concert someday.

  248. WHAT AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE AT THE FANTASY SPRINGS CONCERT!! WLL left me speechless! It was definitely an ‘epic’ acoustic version of that song. I will think of that song in a whole different way from now on!! All the songs were fantastically done.

    WHO CAN SING AND PERFORM LIKE THAT?…..ADAM LAMBERT!!!!!!!

  249. I just got back to MI from Fantasy Springs…and I’m still speechless about what I saw. We all stayed up until nearly 4am this morning watching the videos, and talking about what we witnessed. Every person we talked to at the Casino was feeling the same things…it was like nothing I have ever seen from Adam before. He was in a zone that sucked you in for the entire performance. I love all of the band members, but I have to say I couldn’t take my eyes off Adam all night. I probably looked at Tommy 2-3 times. A witchy dream catcher was the first thing that came to my mind when he took the stage. WLL was on a level that can’t even be described. You felt like you were on some acid trip with him for 7 minutes. Fever….unbelievable. I need to get to bed, but this last weekend was an event that I will never forget. I’ll read what everyone else has said tomorrow. What a performance….unbelievable.

    Great analogy dhunken! Yes, I will have to agree.

  251. This may sound like a stupid question and I apologize in advance (I also apologize to mj if this is against the rules) but I downloaded a bunch of youtubes of Adam’s fantasy springs performances as well as an mp3 version of WLL yet have no idea how to transfer them to my ipod. I am desperate to get them onto my ipod and seem to recall getting some of his other pre-idol songs on my ipod but can’t remember how to do it now. So frustrating. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

  252. Occasional poster here. That was an amazing show and a fun introduction to Burning Man Adam. After listening to him for a year, I’m still astonished by his vocal range and versatility. It will be fascinating to watch him develop as a solo performer. Acoustic WLL didn’t work for me but I hope he’ll play around with it and give it more of a bluesy sound.

    Watching these videos reassures me that, whatever else is happening in Adam’s world, it’s still about the music. And in conclusion, I’d just like to say “ADAM FREAKIN’ LAMBERT RULES”.

  253. So happy for all of you that went to FS and had a blast. Thanks for all the vids!!! Wish I could have gone too. Sounds so freaking amazing. What an incredible voice and he always keeps upping the bar. Just when you think he can’t get any better, he does something like that acoustic WLL that leaves us speechless, then gushing. Thank you MJ for posting all the vids so quickly.

  254. Adam’s first headline concert last night lived up to and exceeded all my expectations. It wasn’t just the amazing performance but it was being with 3000 + fans who adored Adam and weren’t afraid to show it. It made such a great change after a week of hateful comments directed towards him online (on other web sites, of course).
    The other interesting thing was how many fans didn’t know he was doing two concerts in Vancouver in April and were even more surprised to hear that the shows sold out in minutes with zero advertising. I told them they better start reading the AI/Adam Fan Boards if they want concert info, as Adam’s management may never have to spend too much on advertising. It will all be word-of-mouth.

  255. So, he’s gone gold in 3 countries or am I missing one? US, Canada and Singapore!

    Oh God, Adam must go or perform at that Mardi Gras event!! He would have so much!!!!!

    I said this on another board and I’ll post it here: Does acoustic WLL have the same result for anyone like ROF did? I was hypnotized by ROF – played it over and over again. I find I’m doing the same thing with WLL. I’ve still got a few videos to watch but Fantasy Springs concert was like his journey on AI – a little of everything with a “WTF” moment once or twice, all in an hour set.

    It’s mediabase Monday and I find I’m not interested. I’m watching anthrogeekPF videos. The slow acoustic ones are stunning and video is so clear.

  256. Hah, I listened to all the vids(thanks mj, those were fantabulous!),
    so I don’t have time to read the posts.Mmmm WLL,fever,BO and Soaked!

    Hopefully this has’t been said over and over,… but I can’t imagine it will be easy, in the future, to cover Adams music, as he has covered his own songs with so many variations already. That is, if anyone wants to be original, it will be hard to find one that he hasn’t sang every which way to “Over the Moon.” Since they need to give credit, they will have to refer to eg; WLL, by Adam Lambert, Feb 27 2010 Fantasy springs Cal/USA. Hee,Hee!

    I was offered a free ticket from my sister in law, who is a executive secretary to the Boss ( some of the radio stations get
    tics for promotional and business purposes) but alas I was unable
    to go due to my health problems…a month earlier…yes…DAMN!!!!

  257. About Adam Lambert’s concert in Singapore: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=349112077256

    “intimate showcase” ……….Sigh…..
    Well good things from the post —
    1. Adam achieved GOLD status in Singapore!
    2. They are releasing a Deluxe DVD!

    Ok sorry correction, on re-reading the post by Sony Music, it sounds like the GOLD status they are referring to could be the US Gold Status. NOT Singapore but I am not sure (?). This is what they say:

    “Adam has achieved Gold status and topped the album charts in Singapore for his debut album For Your Entertainment, released in November 2009. “

  258. ok I have decided that Adam’s Whole Lotta Love acoustic version is the Bolero (by Ravel’s) of the new Millennium.

    YES! Exactly.

    I’m starting to worry about trying to get tickets to one of his tour concerts this Spring/Summer given that these first 3 have sold out so quickly (2 of them in minutes!) I wonder if he’ll perform in larger venues. Well, I guess I’ll worry about that later. :) Too much to enjoy right now! The videos are incredible.

  259. RCA has to know all of Adam’s fans want to see him in concert, they need to let us know when he’s going to tour and where. I am seeing him sometime this year, I don’t care where I have to drive or fly to, but I am not going to miss out on hearing him live in concert. I think Adam has proven he can sell out a concert, the one at FS proved that point, because that one held over 3000 people. As for WLL, I still haven’t recovered from first listening to that on the Stream. Last night I listened to a really old Janis Joplin tape and she was singing Cry Baby live and that raspy, bluesy voice, brought you to tears and made you wonder if this woman was human. Hearing Adam singing WLL, brought back that same feeling of wonder and amazement. Anyone non fan of Adam who looks at this video, will understand our loyalty and dedication to this man. He delivered the most memorable performance of this decade for me.

  260. Bridgette12
    I hear you, lol I already have $200 saved. Just waiting, and waiting and waiting for the word on when and where. Thouugh I have mixed feelings about the size of the venues. On one hand I would love for Adam to be able to fill/sell out large arenas. Lol mainly cuz it would mean I could get tickets. But on the other I don’t want to watch Adam from the nose bleed section. I want to see Adam up close and personal. I never got to see him on the AI tour. Lol I didn’t even know who he was until Monday morning after the AMA’s.

  261. Its been three days now…and I still come back to these clips to re live Fantasy Springs. I’m truly blessed to have witnessed Adam up close at Idol Tour, Gridlock and Fantasy Springs — and even Leno tomorrow. The plus of being in S.CA.

    Adam brings SIZZLE into otherwise normal lives!

  262. I’ve got more than that set aside. I live in the tri-state area. I want to take in as many shows as I can.

    The Broken Open vocal is immaculate. Completely stunning. The WLL audio on the last video Monte tweeted is really really good, especially with headphones. I’m making a audio file of it.

  263. Well, I am a little late on this so everyone else has probably already said it all but I still want to put my 2 cents in. I am an OTT fan so if you don’t like OTT comments you might want to skip this one.

    What an amazing show this was!!! It was impossible to look away from the stage the whole time he was on. He can command a stage, no doubt about it. He was at times campy, at times very stripped down and just singing, and at times just a rock singer doing his thing but it all came together perfectly and gave me memories I will never forget. I am so, so happy that I put the money out to see his first real concert because it truly did feel extra special. Getting to meet some of his other fans at the Glamily Reunion was icing on the cake.

    My favorite performance was, of course, WLL. What he did with that song will stay with me forever. The video on this site is great but it doesn’t give a feel for how mesmerizing it was to watch it live. I am pretty sure I didn’t breath for the 8 minutes he was singing it. It was also pretty cool the way he thanked the band for practicing it so many hours with him to make it right when they didn’t need the practice. I thank them, too. The result truly was worth the effort.

    I also loved the campy performances of Fever and Down the Rabbit Hole. He was channeling the Zodiac Show with those two songs and it was so much fun. He had been a little campy in some of the earlier songs but by the end he was having a ball because he knew he was completely killing and he let it all hang out and again you just can’t fully appreciate it from the videos. Live was just too awesome for words.

    For me, though, the highlight was the acoustic songs. I have already mentioned WLL but all of the songs he sang acoustically were so beautiful. His voice and what he can do with it touch me in a way that the fun of seeing him being campy and silly can’t. When he goes from low, followed by really high notes, to just long drawn out beautiful, soulful notes it makes my soul feel right with the world. Adam’s voice is what makes him, the looks and personality are just extra tasty side dishes.

    My final word is that I was shocked to realize he had sung 13 songs. It went so fast and seemed like he was up there no more than 20 minutes or so. I could have easily sat there another 2 or 3 hours watching that show. That’s how much fun it was. I can’t wait to see him live again.

  264. Lorismile how do you make an audio out of a youtube video? Cuz I need that on my phone really really bad

  265. Honestly, I don’t know. I call my daughter and college and she does it for me – lol You can probably do a google search and it will show you.

    That was a great review …. I don’t think you were OTT at all :)

  267. madnessinmotion, thank you so much for your wonderful recap. It helped me feel like I was there, and I am totally with you on how you described your experience of Adam live. It makes me so happy to hear that not only were Adam’s fans totally mesmerized and having a ball, but that Adam himself knew that he was killing it and was clearly having a ball, too. Just love the guy.

  268. Thanks madnessinmotion, great recap! So glad you had a great time.

  269. madnessinmotion: Adam thanked the band for doing an amazing job playing WLL with NO REHEARSAL AT ALL and he put it together by singing it on the way to Indio in the car.

  270. i do hope one of these days they’ll retreat into a studio and take WLL acoustic to an even more extended session… and release it w/their other stripped down arrangements.

    Ok, so I misunderstood!?!? I thought I heard him thank them for practicing for hours to make the song great and he really thanked them for doing it with no practice? My version of the story makes more sense, LOL. They were all awesome on that song. If they really did that with no practice then Adam needs to be down on his knees thanking the universe for sending him such an awesome band because it sounded like they had practiced for hours.

    BTW, thank you for the link. I am still blown away by that performance. After I listen to it on continuous rotation all day tomorrow I may be able to get over it. :)
