  1. I thought a press release was supposed to come out today about the tour? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. There aren’t many dates outside of June.

  2. Dude. I’m still wondering whether he’ll get here (London) in time for his Promo….stupic Volcano cloud lol. And wth, wish he was staying longer, his International interviews and performances have all been SO much cooler than the U.S ones (no offence just saying, you know it’s true).

  3. There you are, its happening for Adam, his own tour! And summer underwater videos for those of us who cant go! I personally cant wait!

  4. Would anyone like to compare Foxwoods with the Boston Garden as venues: acoustics & etc?

  5. The quoted tour start is not his tour – it is another show that he is part of. In fact, some other dates are composite performer shows put on by radio stations each summer and he is one performer among many. You would have to examine each one to tell what are his tour dates and when it actually begins.

    I doubt that his full show will be performed when he is one of many performers.

  6. Dreamday. The garden is an arena. Foxwoods is a theater
    albeit a relatively large one. Totally different environment can’t comment on acoustics altho I would think Foxwoods is better

  7. I’m being a good little girl…waiting patiently for Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland…anything closer to MI. But then again, road trips are fun too, so what the hell…never been to NY, maybe it’s time! :)

  8. shoshanna stone
    We are redoing Adam’s promo itinerary, he’s held on a flight!! Everything crossed!

  9. Based on what they posted, I’m assuming Wilkes-Barre PA concert will be the first. I might have to do that whole weekend! The drive would be so worth it to see the first show!!!!

    Gosh…I’m so excited. Can’t wait for tickets to go on sale!!

    Hopefully Adam can get to the UK for his shows at least. GAY on Sat. and Heaven on Monday. I’m sure they can re-schedule the TV and interviews scheduled for later.

  10. Hmmm my pessimistic side is in full swing today. Lol will Adam acctually have concerts in Washington. If so will they be smaller venues in Seattle, 1 of the events centers around Western wa or a casino gig. And if only 1 or mutliple shows in the state. And then will I be able to get tickets if it only one show at a smallish venue……..arrgggghhhhh

    Think happy thoughts……happy thoughts……..
    Maybe this will help

  11. That volcano is messing up a lot of people’s plans. I think another one erupted today or yesterday?

  12. Nokia Theater in NYC is 2100 seat venue. This looks like Adam’s own concert, and the tickets will go faaaaaaaaaast! I know personally at least 6 people that want to go.
    I guess it will be either StubHub for me, or drivin’ to Foxwoods..:(

  13. If excluding some seemingly joint concert shows, most of the rest are casino or ballroom venue. nothing wrong with that..

  14. I just checked Ticketmaster and the one in Costa Mesa goes on pre-sale on the 21st. That is the only date so far on Ticketmaster.

  15. What is presale? How do you get presale? (sorry I’m dense on this stuff) Maybe AO will send an email out with a code or something to the people registered on his site?

  16. Chicago! Come to Chicago. We gave him a lot of love during the summer tour! Lots of fans here.

  17. Lorismile
    Presale is when you can get a code to buy tickets before the general public. Supposedly if you register with http://www.ticketmaster.com (where most likely the tickets will be for sale if you don’t buy direct from venue) and add Adam as one of your favorite artists you might get a shot at buying tickets earlyer than the general public.

  18. Adam’s playing Musikfest? That’s a fun gig. I usually try to coordinate my trips home to the great Lehigh Valley with the timing of the ‘fest, but alas this year I cannot. I’ll be back there twice before then. (Damn you my multitude of cousins who always have to get married at inconvenient times.)

    I will most likely see Adam when he comes here for the Rays game anyway. We typically go to the Saturday night games, and the summer concert events whenever the scheduling works out. So, hopefully, that will be my chance.

  19. Chicago! Come to Chicago. We gave him a lot of love during the summer tour! Lots of fans here.

    Me too!! Come here.

    I read somewhere lorismile, that if you register on Ticketmaster, they will notify you before tickets go on sale and you get to purchase before the official sale date. I haven’t done it myself yet, but I’m going to definately look into it. You’ll never every advantage you can get to snag up some of these tickets! :)

    edit: Sorry…smeggs beat me to it!!! :)

  21. The FM Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre is amazing. I think it seats around 2100 but it’s a really glamorous old Hollywood art deco theater.

    I can’t wait to get my tickets! So far I have ten people in my class that want to go!

  22. Ok, ecstatic about the tour dates (especially since we FINALLY get a bunch on the east coast!) But completely superficial timeout to say: DAYUM, that pic of Adam is so fine! His look at GLAAD this weekend – OMFG HAWT!! /end shallowness (for now – lol)

  23. smeggingnuts, thank you for the information. I signed up with ticketmasters, hopefully I will get the chance to get some good tickets for one of Adam’s concerts. At this point, I don’t care where the concert is, I will see Adam this summer.

  24. Council Bluffs, Iowa….I hit the JACKPOT,finally for us little old midwesterners that LOVE Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. @FoxwoodsCT Adam Lambert tickets will go on sale Friday, May 7 at 9am! We’ll tweet when we have more info on pricing, etc..

  26. Please, Universe, let him come to D.C.!!!

    Yeah. How can you not do DC?? Heck, how can you not do Philadelphia and MD too?! It looks like they only released June’s dates so thats good.

  27. I don’t know how people can have a north american tour (touring for a few months) and never come to Washington State. But we get skipped all the frikken time. That’s why I’m stressing. We have been passed over by a lot of big names in the past. I hope Adam doesn’t skip me too :'(

    Get the ‘ole GPS out smeggs and chase him down!! How far of a drive is it to CA for you? Road trips with friends are always a good time!! :)

    I’ve fully prepared myself (friends have also) to drive wherever we need to go if he skips MI, OH, IL, etc. I will NOT miss this GLAM NATION tour.

  29. Tls62
    Its about a 24 hr drive to LA. Lol the 2 people that I’m going with have both said they would drive to Cali with me if need be to see him. Its just I work 2 jobs and don’t have any days off so getting to Cali for a concert is going to be difficult especially if its on a weekend.

  30. @FoxwoodsCT Adam Lambert tickets will go on sale Friday, May 7 at 9am! We’ll tweet when we have more info on pricing, etc..

    Circled on my calendar…doing dance in my office (blinds closed, door shut) that I can buy Glam Nation tickets in 2 1/2 weeks!!!!! Woooohooo

    Okay – I’m already signed up with Ticketmaster and have Adam as a fave so I should be good. FYI…they do have the CA one at presale on 4/21 for those in the area.

  31. Wow smeggs…that is quite a drive. You must be in the upper part of WA? That would be like me driving to FL which is quite a haul. Hmmm…well have faith, maybe he’ll take pity on you and if not WA, something closer than LA! You know damn well though that whatever you have to do to make it happen, it’ll be well worth it and you’ll never regret or forget it!

  32. I’m sure fans realize dates are just now being released and will contine to be released, no one is butt hurt yet. Are they? Jump the gun much?

  33. DEAR GOD,
    PLEASE LET ADAM DO D.C!!!!!
    Plzzzzzzzzzzz I don’t care where dc,northern va or md!
    pleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleas
    please help!!,
    luvadamlambert

    hopefully god reads that

    I’m gonna like dieeeeee if Adam doesn’t come to dc.don’t most tours do DC?
    SQUEEEEEEEEEE at the tour dates fianlly coming together
    too bad about Adams flight…(but at least we get to keep him here)

  34. Tls62
    Yeah I live pretty close to the boarder. But what are ya gonna do….not see Adam in concert??? I mean some of you guys got to see him on the AI tour lol I didn’t even know about him then. I am hopeing if he doesn’t play Seattle maybe Portland.

    But Adam I really want you to know that in Everett WA there is a really nice Event Center that is about 3k capacity…which just happens to be only 45 mins away *nod nod wink wink*

  35. Luv
    If we keep Adam here how is he supposed to have World Domination??

  36. Luv
    If we keep Adam here how is he supposed to have World Domination??

    True…but he kinda already did world domination with his thing is March:) Plus,he hasn’t been her long enough.I would miss him if leaves.Maybe World Domination can wait? ((GASP))

    :)

  37. Ok I really need them to finish posting dates so I know if I need to bupresale tickes to LA or not lol. *shakes fists* AO such teases

  38. Its about a 24 hr drive to LA. ….Ok I really need them to finish posting dates so I know if I need to bupresale tickes to LA or not lol.

    There’s a whole lotta’ land between you and LA. The entire state of oregon and northern CA which includes San Francisco and Sacramento. I’m hoping you don’t have to drive to LA.

    ETA: I’m hoping I don’t have to drive to LA as well. I live in northern CA.

  39. Lorismile et al, with the Ticketmaster presale thing, make sure exactly at 10:00 am on the day you’re logged in with the special code they give you. don’t hesitate. the max per person is 6 tix so encourage friends to sign up too. Just don’t be picky and choosy, just take whatever they give you first because if you try to go back and choose again, in two minutes the seats left will be at the back of the venue. Don’t fuss if you get 15 rows or further back because you don’t usually get much better. The brokers and promoters tend to have all the best seats holding. That’s in my experience. As long as you have some holding, you can always keep trying for better. you can always sell yours if you get better seats after. Seriously, sometimes if you look at the broker sites about two weeks before concert tix even go for presale on Ticketmaster, they already have tix for sale and Ticketmaster doesn’t even have that concert listed yet. Just my experience.

  40. I’m surprised the NYC venue is not bigger. He had a thousand people starting in the wees hours of the morning, lined up to see him in the freezing cold just for two songs (The Early Show).

  41. Also, sometimes if American Express is associated with the concert promotions, you can even get earlier priority with an A/E card and there’s a special number to call or you will see it online at the Ticketmaster site. Good luck to all in getting tix. Waiting for the deep south dates. :)

    I’m surprised the NYC venue is not bigger. He had a thousand people starting in the wees hours of the morning, lined up to see him in the freezing cold just for two songs (The Early Show).”

    On another thread someone commented that they have booked the NYC venue for two nights and are waiting to see how ticket sales go with the first.

  43. I’m just so happy he’s getting what he wanted out of this Idol journey. Major record deal, headlining a tour, naming it himself, making the creative calls…it’s all good stuff for him. I have no idea what was keeping me busy a year ago…I must have been bored out of my mind and just didn’t realize it. :)

  44. damn…no dates scheduled in Florida yet :(
    although the schedule doesnt look complete so Im keeping my fingers crossed.
    Plus, Im sure he will want to come to Miami at one point or another. South Beach is really nice, especially at night :)) Im sure hes heard about it ;)
    also, there better be a DVD release of this concert as Im sure it will be epic.

  45. cher….thanks so much for all the tips!!!

    I have no idea what was keeping me busy a year ago…I must have been bored out of my mind and just didn’t realize it

    I have a before Adam and an after Adam. I barely remember before Adam lol

    damn…no dates scheduled in Florida yet :(
    although the schedule doesnt look complete so Im keeping my fingers crossed.”

    I’m thinking he might come to our Miami/Ft.Lauderdale area closer to the Tampa Devil Rays concert since Orianthi will be with him at that one. It would make sense. He’s definitely gotta check out South Beach. lol

  47. Is anyone else obsessively checking AO for tour location updates? I, up until today, was convinced he would come to DC–Gaga did recently (granted I couldn’t get a ticket, but I digress…) and now, well am approaching OCD-FREAK-SITUATION! Before Adam? I was real, but uptight…post-Adam…lets not go there. Well, that is, until a D.C. date is confirmed! GAH I am very new posting here, yet read frequently…don’t ya’ll have cocktail/popcorn parties when waiting for information? Does anyone want a glass of cabernet?!!! I hate drinking alone… :-)

  48. Hey those tour dates look great for those in the North and out West, but what about us in the South. What about Nashville, Memphis or Atlanta?

  49. if you guys get sick of obsessing about this you can go down in the mediabase thread and squee about the numbers coming in for the FYE album !!

    only 36% reporting

    23 ADAM LAMBERT 19/RCA/RMG 5,816

  50. Wow check out this photo of the volcano fro NASA
    http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/

    Holy shit. Yeah it was only a matter of time before his flight got cancelled. Im sure hell be there in a few days though…:)
    guess I shall wait for him to tweet about it.

  51. my bf really misses the pre-Adam me lol

    I hope Adam will come to Chicago. We have lots of theaters here.

    Constalicious, I don’t mind having a cup of sake in late afternoon :)

  52. I’m thinking he might come to our Miami/Ft.Lauderdale area closer to the Tampa Devil Rays concert since Orianthi will be with him at that one. It would make sense. He’s definitely gotta check out South Beach. lol

    Which concert is that and when is it??

  53. Hahah not sure why it looks good for people out west unless you live near LA…..they really should have waited to post until they had all the dates cuz I’m freaking out…..yeah checking AO every 15mins in the vail hope they post more dates.

    Constalicious
    Welcome to the Wait and See party *slides over a glass of cabernet

  54. Wow! I”m really excited that the tour dates are finally shaping up! I’ve been a lurker for a while now, just coming out to say how happy I am about the tour! I hope he comes out to north cali, as I live near the bay area, didn’t get to see him on the AI tour due to car trouble at the last minute etc.. but anyway I’m hoping to go to as many concerts as I can…anyway back to lurking…

  55. Adamisthemanfan, the Tampa Devil Rays concert is after the game on Saturday, September 18th. Orianthi will also be there. Some of us already have tickets, just because we are so stressed that he may not do concert in So Fla, but we are determined to go to TWO if he does! So, cabernet here also, smeggs, please…..

  56. I know what I did “before Adam”: clean house, cook meals, talk to my kids (jk about that last one, sorta :) !) Fingers crossed that a stop is added in the Dallas/OKC area.

  57. LOL studio57 :)
    Constalicious,I feel your pain.I will FREAK OUT if Adam doesn’t come to DC D:
    I.NEED.ADAM! Not coming to DC would be crazy..right? RIGHT?!
    Even MD or VA (north plz) is fine.Is the patriot cnter big?
    Welcome constalicious and maria23!!!!!!!! :)
    *fingers crossed for Seattle and DC*

    To calm everybody (and me :)) down,don’t worry,there’s DEFINETLY going to be more dates added.I think (?) there was news Adam was doing Canada date and those haven’t been announced yet.I think someone else’s theory is right-they only posted June dates.
    Also,there’s a rumor the Lee Cherry photoshoot is for the Glam Nation tour…

  58. Slides Becky a sake and smeggs a cabernet…Phew! And, CHEERS! Question, as I am new posting here, do ya’ll ever band together for a show? For example, I am city gurl w/o car and w/o Adam fan/friends willing to travel to a show but would be interested to consider going to say Philly with other MJ fans…meeting in advance, of course. Does this make sense?

  59. Alot of these venues are the same ones that Archie hit on his tour which makes sense.Archie didn’t do casinos though. :)

    I’m restraining myself and will not make any 401K jokes. Anyway, good luck to Adam on the tour. Adam and Company should put on a good show.

  60. Constalicious,I feel your pain.I will FREAK OUT if Adam doesn’t come to DC D:
    I.NEED.ADAM! Not coming to DC would be crazy..right? RIGHT?!
    Even MD or VA (north plz) is fine.Is the patriot cnter big?

    Luv would your parents let you go?

    The Patriot Center is within walking distance. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. :) There is also a theater on campus as well that holds 1K. Cook, Daughtry and Kelly have played here. So… everything is crossed. I hate traveling into DC so… I’m hoping that is not a stop. Adam, are you reading.. the patriot center.. YES They can adjust sizing.. DC, no… :)

  61. No dates in chicago????? i hope Adam is goiing to add us in Chicago.. we luv him here! and we have lots of theaters and venues and arenas. PLEASE COME TO CHICAGO, ADAM! or life will truly suck.

  62. I think I was addicted to World of Warcraft before I was addicted to Adam…….hmmm sensing a pattern mayhap I need an intervention.

  63. Oh for God’s sake! why is the NYC one sooo small!??! D:

    I know 10 people who are going, who are bringing a person or 2 each. I also heard that a lot of people will be flying in.

    I will be SOOOOO upset if im not able to see Adam, when i’ve never seen him before, and some people have seen him much more than once. *SIGH*

  64. Koshka–Patriot Center is HUGE; Constitution Hall in D.C (where Gaga performed) is the PREFECT venue in size and demographics (Am Univ nearby and downtown)–right off the beltway, so would not be too hard for you to get to–and easy parking. Please gawd, make it happen! Also, you can get tickets at the venue not controlled by ticketbastard…LUV–since I am new, how old are you?

  65. Adamisthemanfan, the Tampa Devil Rays concert is after the game on Saturday, September 18th. Orianthi will also be there. Some of us already have tickets, just because we are so stressed that he may not do concert in So Fla, but we are determined to go to TWO if he does!

    got it, thank you. I really really hope he comes to SF but we’ll see…where can you get tickets for that Tampa concert? I went to ticketmaster and they only had one concert in California posted…
    is that concert in Tampoa part of his tour or another event?
    sorry if Im annoying you with all of these questions lol Im a bit out of the loop.

  66. Well considering Adam said the tour will last 2 1/2 months and we only have dates for June there will be a lot more to come. Just a question of how perverse they are in how long they are going to let us freak out.

    Its not funny anymore 19/Sony/RCA *shakes fist* spit’em out damn you

  67. I don’t think any of these are the GlamNation tour dates except perhaps those at the Nokia in NYC. Adam did say it would be a week or two before everything is firmed up. They will no doubt announce the rest of them then. I don’t see any need to panic since I rather doubt he’ll only performing once in each of July and August.

  68. Have my fingers crossed that we’ll see a Denver tour date, we feel neglected out here.

  69. melirose89
    I feel your pain. That is sorta my biggest fear that I won’t get to see him but some one who went to all the AI tours and all his resent concerts will get tickets. I know its mean to get upset over tthat cuz its perfectly fair if they buy their tickets before me and all but can’t they share Adam with some of us who have never seen him???? It that to much to ask?

  70. Koshka,I’m really not sure.I don’t think so,but there’s always a 1 or maybe even. 2% chance of me going.So it’s really unlikely,but it’s possible …
    If its at a “good”,close,venue like the patriot center, and if a “teen-friendly” act is opening then maybe-ish.I think my Mom would take me (she didn’t see the AMA’s ) , as long as I don’t act too obsessed
    thnx for the patriot center info :)

  71. Adamisthemanfan, you go to Tampa Devil Rays website, and get them directly from the DevilRays (it sort of ties in with Ticketmaster, but is easier). They said fans can go onto the field after the game, don’t remember the rules for that, but you can also order tckts from DevilRays by phone and they give you a lot of info.
    NEVER WORRY, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, always happy to help!!

  72. Just a question of how perverse they are in how long they are going to let us freak out.

    Its not funny anymore 19/Sony/RCA *shakes fist* spit’em out damn you

    Me: Give it up 19E so I can weild my credit card and competitive edge…I will get front row seat this time!!!

    Mother: Mary, realy?

    Me: Um, errr, what happened?

    Mother…

    Sorry MJ …………

  73. Adamisthemanfan, I’m down in the SMiami area and going to the Tampa concert. email me: cheryl@jamaicakitchen.com and I’ll tell you the details, blah blah. lots of instructions. lol The things I do for Adam. :)

  74. I posted this before, Melirose, that apparently they’ve booked the NY venue for 2 nights, in case they need a second concert there, so maybe you can go twice. :)

  75. Patriot Center is HUGE; Constitution Hall in D.C (where Gaga performed) is the PREFECT venue in size and demographics

    I agree! The Patriot Center is a great location for me, but it houses 10,000. That may be a bit overwhelming for Adam at this beginning point in his career. Constitution Hall in DC would be perfect — close to 4,000.

  76. Is there any1 here that lives in North California, like around San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento area? Was hoping that I could probably catch/meet someone from here, over there, (that’s if he do one in north cal instead of the LA area). I really really want to go to a concert, my family thinks that I’m nuts, some of them like Adam fairly enough, would watch his videos, interviews with be etc…but don’t have any1 that is willing to go w/ me to one of his concerts.

  77. Hi and thanks Luv! I hope that you’ll be allowed to go see him live

  78. Just a FYI. One of my customers just said he was at an auction for charity last week and one of the S8 pictures with all top10 idols and their signatures on it sold for $575.00.

  79. NEVER WORRY, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, always happy to help!!

    Thank you!! Yes we certainly are LOL

    cher: will do :) thanks

  80. I’m restraining myself and will not make any 401K jokes

    I don’t get this. What 401k jokes?

    The June ones must all be tour dates. He will not have one off appearances in the middle of his tour (outside of the radio gigs already lined up – Kfest, Wango Tango, etc…) The casino and theater ones must be for his tour. It’s like giving fans Take One when For Your Entertainment is out.

  81. lorismile, the 401k jokes were referring to people maybe taking money out of their accounts to buy Adam concert tix. Just snark. lol

  82. Oh for God’s sake! why is the NYC one sooo small!??! D:

    I know 10 people who are going, who are bringing a person or 2 each. I also heard that a lot of people will be flying in.

    I will be SOOOOO upset if im not able to see Adam, when i’ve never seen him before, and some people have seen him much more than once. *SIGH

    After trying to get tickets for Adam’s last three concerts, I know I don’t have a prayer of getting tickets for NYC. My husband would love to go to there for Adam. Yes, not only the locals, but I know many people all over the world would fly in to see Adam in NYC.

  83. On sale ticket dates I have so far:

    presale April 21st for OC Fair CA show
    April 26th for Starland Ballroom in NJ
    May 7th for Foxwoods

  84. Do you know how stinkin hot it is in Tampa in Sept? Does Adam realize that he will be sweating bullets on stage while he is singing? I hope to hell he isnt wearing a lot of makeup, cause it will melt right off him. I live in Tampa, and for the life of me, cant seem to want to go to the stadium to sweat my butt of even to see Adam. I need to be in a nice cool air conditioned place, so Adam and I arent sweating our butts off and so we can enjoy the show. Thats just me lol.

  85. Lorismile
    Yeah apparently there is only a few thousand Adam fans. We have all bought at lest 500 copies of FYE and we have all cashed in our 401k’s so we can see every concert and make sure they have all been sell outs

    Who was/were Archie’s opener(s)?

  87. Miss Chaos…but don’t you want to see the sweat glistening and maybe it gets soo hot he takes his shirt off ;)

  88. I posted it in headlines! You gotta click on his picture otherwise it says private. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!! So close up! They loved it! I love it!

    nevermind don’t have to do the picture thing, lol.

  89. Smegg,totally out of topic,where did you order your Japanese RL from? I ordered mine 10 days ago from MagazineCafe,got confirmation e-mail and I never heard from them again..:(((..I guess, I won’t have to cash my 401(k) after all..hehe..:)

    Koshka–Patriot Center is HUGE; Constitution Hall in D.C (where Gaga performed) is the PREFECT venue in size and demographics (Am Univ nearby and downtown)–right off the beltway, so would not be too hard for you to get to–and easy parking. Please gawd, make it happen! Also, you can get tickets at the venue not controlled by ticketbastard…LUV–since I am new, how old are you?

    Don’t rain on my parade. ;) In the past (for Disney on ice) they only used a small part of the entire arena. I know its unlikely. LOL But there is a small theater here too. OK.. pathetic, but I’m trying. I want to be able to drink and walk home. :)

    ETA: Luv I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  91. I wish Adam Glam Nation would come to Montreal, Canada concerts sell like hot cakes here to start with and Adam is also very popular here too. David Cook played here last fall so I hope Adam will come here too.

  92. Luv heheh that’s a good one me likey :D

    Oskana2000
    I got mine thru the HVM Japan web site. I had also ordered thru that Magazinecafe site too. I thought I would play it safe and order 2 thru differents sites just in case. I got email from magazinecafe saying they couldn’t fill my order. I’m glad I hedged my bets.

  93. Would someone marry me so I can have a green card and be able to go to the States so I can see Adam and his Glam Nation tour? :)

  94. OK, I mixed up a bucket of Pina Coladas and one of Margaritas …. just waiting on them to freeze then I can chill out and wait for a tour stop in OH, MI or eastern PA, I love road trips!

    A South American model just got arrested in California for paying someone to marry her so she could live here … are you willing to take the risk? Of course, I know the answer!

    No dates in chicago????? i hope Adam is goiing to add us in Chicago.. we luv him here! and we have lots of theaters and venues and arenas. PLEASE COME TO CHICAGO, ADAM! or life will truly suck.

    Just got home from work and went straight for his schedule. I was thinking the exact same thing. Where’s Chicago??? Very sad. I googled the Council Bluffs, IA and it’s at least a 7 hr drive.

  98. Smegg,thanks for info. I tried HMV Japan, but RS issue with Adam’s cover is SOLD OUT..((..Why am I not surprised?.. I guess, now I have to cross my fingers and wait for MagCafe…..

  99. Well I hope you are male.. otherwise thats not allowed in my state.

    If you’re female, it’s allowed in my state, but alas, I’m not a lesbian.

    I am going to 5 shows (at least that’s my plan) but I’m not cashing in my 401k. I just need to see as many as possible. Since my vacation was cancelled – Adam’s tour will be my vacation for this year :-)

    I can’t believe Adam is still in the top 10 on Itunes! What a great bump!

  100. Well, if I have to drive 7 – 8 hours to Iowa, I’ll do it, but I sure hope he’s coming to Chicago :-(

  101. Well I hope you are male.. otherwise thats not allowed in my state.

    If you’re female, it’s allowed in my state, but alas, I’m not a lesbian.

    HAHAHA! You guys crack me up! :) Straight female here! But like Adam said: all about diversity!

  102. I am trying to remain calm until the rest of the dates are added. I sure hope they add some tour dates for the south. We love Adam down here too.

    I feel like a kid at Christmas waiting so see what Santa is bringing.

  103. Renataamelo
    Looks like I may have to drive to cali to see Adam ill meet you in San Fransico get hitched see Adam, but I may have to divorce you after ;)

  104. I have to drive 9 hours (OK, my husband) to Minneapolis, because I am sure he is not coming to my city in Canada. Since today I am member of the Mystic Email Club to get Pre-Sale tickets !!! I can not wait to get our tickets :)

  105. Thanks smeggs and koshka:)

    Well I hope you are male.. otherwise thats not allowed in my state.
    If you’re female, it’s allowed in my state, but alas, I’m not a lesbian.

    LMFAO

    Great that WWFM is still in the top 10

  106. luv- i was trying to think of the name of that skunk in yur avi- what was it?

  107. I wish they would post the rest of the schedule. I need to figure out which ones work best.

    The tickets for Starland Ballroom in NJ are only $35.50!!! (probably expensive for some but cheap for tri-state area)

  108. I can’t understand why they would post tour dates piecemeal instead of waiting until they could release the entire itinerary. This generates more questions than it provides answers.

  109. Do you know how stinkin hot it is in Tampa in Sept? Does Adam realize that he will be sweating bullets on stage while he is singing? I hope to hell he isnt wearing a lot of makeup, cause it will melt right off him. I live in Tampa, and for the life of me, cant seem to want to go to the stadium to sweat my butt of even to see Adam. I need to be in a nice cool air conditioned place, so Adam and I arent sweating our butts off and so we can enjoy the show. Thats just me lol.

    He’s playing at Tropicana field in the dome, 72 degrees year round!

    (Still hoping for Ruth Eckerd Hall or another venue with better acoustics too) Or House of Blues or Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando !

  110. Do you know how stinkin hot it is in Tampa in Sept? Does Adam realize that he will be sweating bullets on stage while he is singing?

I need to be in a nice cool air conditioned place, so Adam and I arent sweating our butts off and so we can enjoy the show. Thats just me lol.

    Just so as not to confuse any out of towners who may be coming in for this: The Tampa Bay Rays play in St. Petersburg, across the Bay from Tampa. They play in a Dome, with lots of air conditioning :). There are 2 open air venues that people can play here – both are too large for Adam (Raymond James Stadium in Tampa where the Bucs play and the Ford Ampitheatre). The St. Pete Times Forum (where the Lightning plays) is also an air-conditioned venue (where the AI tour comes). Also too big for Adam.

    If he books anything other than the Rays Summer Concert series here, it will likely be either Ruth Eckerd Hall (in Clearwater) or the Starz Center (formerly the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center – Downtown Tampa). Both, indoor, comfortably air-conditioned venues. They’re both in the 2,000 – 2,500 seat range, and they’ve had a bunch of AI peeps before.

    Adamisthemanfan, you go to Tampa Devil Rays website, and get them directly from the DevilRays (it sort of ties in with Ticketmaster, but is easier). They said fans can go onto the field after the game, don’t remember the rules for that, but you can also order tckts from DevilRays by phone and they give you a lot of info.

    At this point, they’re advertising that only season ticket holders can go on the field, but last year they did it differently, so that may change.

    If you’re traveling in from out of town, be choosy where you stay. Closer to the water = good. The east side of the stadium area = bad, very bad. There are some rough parts of town around Tropicana Field, so best to ask a local if you know one.

  111. Luv, why am I not seeing Wolfgang as your avatar? I still see Adam’s picture that you have been using. Does everyone else see Wolfgang?

  112. How big is this venue?
    06/22/10 – Nokia Theater – New York, NY

    I think I’ll go to this this one, NY is the only City I have friends in United States.

  113. How big is this venue?
    06/22/10 – Nokia Theater – New York, NY

    The Nokia has about 2100 seats. It’s at Times Square, corner of Broadway and W. 44th St.

  114. Can’t believe Adam’s concert tickets in Costa Mesa California are so affordable, ranging from $19.50 to $49.50. Cool.

  115. Spencerj – I got an email from the Rays today for the John Fogerty concert this weekend. They had a link to buy wrist bands for $30 for field access. I’m hoping they’ll do this for Adam.

  116. Since I’ve been to the David Cook concert at Mystic Lake Casino, I’ll give you a tip. If you sign up to get updates from Mystic Lake, they’ll send you information for the order code for the presale when it becomes available. (if they have one for Adam). However, some people that waited and ordered single seats when the regular sale opened up got better seating. Getting good seats is a crap shoot.

    But I got to say, every seat was good at Mystic. The sound system is superb, the seats are comfortable (but who will be sitting, right?) and the lighting system was top-notch. If you’re curious what that venue is like check this video out from David Cook’s concert at Mystic last summer. (Be sure to watch until you see part of Mr. Sensitive at 4:20, where the light show kicks in. This video was from the second tier of seats, but they have huge jumbo screens on each side with good camera work.)

    Mystic Lake: TWIK/Mr. Sensitive

    And by the way, I was considering going to Adam’s concert, since I enjoyed the venue so much and I was going to be in MPLS that night. However, my husband insisted on the Twin’s game instead.

    One other thing, someone talked about the drive to Council Bluffs being so long but mentioned Chicago. Would the drive to MPLS be less? Something to think about.

    ETA: The tickets at Mystic for DC’s concert were $74.30 each (including fees but not event insurance). Hopefully for Adam’s concert, the price will be a bit more reasonable.

  117. Can’t believe Adam’s concert tickets in Costa Mesa California are so affordable, ranging from $19.50 to $49.50. Cool.

    That’s great. The tickets in Sayerville, NJ are supposedly $35 (+ tax and surcharges). I wonder how hard it will be to get tickets.

  118. Alot of these venues are the same ones that Archie hit on his tour which makes sense.

    He was opening for Demi right? Or was it different tour?

  119. So Adam has to play casinos and festivals like all the other idols?

    Last year Cookie took a lot of criticism for doing that. Funny how things change. What happened to the arena tour that the “rawk god” was supposed to be big enough for? LOL

    Haha, so true! Now that Adam is booked at these places, they are suddenly respectable venues!

  121. I love the spirit of excitement and mutual helpfulness that I’m reading here. You guys are awesome. Even willing to undergo sham marriages to ensure that we all get to see Adam live!

    I’m quite confident that plenty more dates and locations will be announced. For some reason, they just released the June dates, but I expect to see July, August, and possibly September dates posted soon. I just hope they do it soon because I have vacations to plan!

    I’m with those of you in the Northwest– hoping hard for Portland (first choice), SF, or Seattle! Or all three for that matter!

    Oh ksgirlforc… why so grumpy? There has been no expectation that Adam would be playing arenas. Adam disabused us of that notion long ago. I’d say that folks here at MJ’s are very realistic about the need for Adam to stay with mid-size venues at this stage in his career. Peace. :-)

  122. I never wanted him to play big areans in the first place (well outside the fact it would be easier to encure I would get tickets). I wanted smaller venues so I could actually SEE Adam when I went to see him…lol

  123. I wanted smaller venues so I could actually SEE Adam when I went to see him

    Exactly.

    I am hoping he visits San Diego; we have many smaller venues that would be perfect for Adam! (And I don’t want to drive to Los Angeles or even Costa Mesa; I just don’t..)

    Come on Adam, you still have some family here (like your Dad; you know, the guy that bought you food gift cards when you were barely scraping by?)

  124. I saw David Cook at Musikfest last year, and it was a great crowd. I hope Adam gets a similar reception, and that the weather is kind the day of his show.

  125. for the OC Amphitheater venue it says Pre-Sale, anyone know what that means exactly? pre-sale for whom?

  126. smeggs – I also hope he comes to Seattle! Maybe he’ll be doing the west coast in July – it didn’t look like there were any July dates listed yet. It’s approximately an 8 hour drive to Seattle from here, but that’s a lot better than 18 hours to Minnesota or 20-24 hours to California. I can’t even consider the east coast – yikes what a drive that would be.

    I’m quite sure my state, Montana, will not be on Adam’s itinerary anytime soon. However, a few years ago I was able to walk out my front door and go to a Rolling Stones concert which you could also hear loud and clear from my house. It was very convenient – all I had to do was wait 35 years! But I don’t want to have to wait that long for Adam.

    for the OC Amphitheater venue it says Pre-Sale, anyone know what that means exactly? pre-sale for whom?

    We think the presale if for people who are registered with http://www.ticketmaster.com and add Adam as one of their favorites. Apparently sometimes they allows people to buy pre-sale if thats the case. Not sure it applys here but it can’t hurt. Or maybe the pre-sale means that if you are registered at AO there will mail you a pre-sale code or something…who knows

  128. Well, I thought one had to be registered with OC fairs. LOL, cuz the pre-sale for OC is this Wednesday. I need to know…. :( ….AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaahhh, that’s me stressing.

  129. GreenHippo
    when in doubt register for everything…lol at least you have a date :( nadda for me so far. Which kinda sucks cuz if I find out later that the closest concert is in Cali and I didn’t buy tickets hopeing they announce one in Seattle or Portland. I am gonna be soooo depressed :'(

  130. Oh , greenhippo, if it’s Ticketmaster, you can go look online, but it’s probably too late to register for the presale. Look on the website anyway. If it shows that American Express is involved with the event and you have an A/E card, you can call customer service to get the presale as well. The presale means it won’t be open to the general public until 24-48 hrs after the presale begins.

  131. Smegs, remind the NY people that the venue is booked for two days and they will open another if demand is there. Also he’s definitely going to Canada, but don’t know what city. Assuming it’s Toronto or Hamilton.
    Lady Gaga also played smaller venues up to 5000 people, but did back to back ones in certain cities.

  132. Greenhippo, this is for Costa Mesa. Don’t know what OC presale means. Can you call the venue?

  133. Now that some of the tour dates have been released, I’d like to offer the AL fans a website that tracks by location, artist, date, venue and capacity – always good to know for ticket planning. The venues are hyper linked, so you can get details for each one, phone numbers, even past history of other acts that played there, and the columns can be arranged however you wish by clicking the header.

    Perhaps you are familiar with it – it’s called Idol Stages. Here is AL’s Page – They don’t have all the recent dates up yet..but since David Cook had gigs at seven of the twelve listed so far, I can offer you the detail links and capacity for the ones David did.

    Starland Ballroom – Sayreville NJ – Capacity 2047

    Shooting Star Casino – Mahnomen, MN – Capacity 1500

    Mystic Lake Casino Hotel – Prior Lake, MN – Capacity 2400

    Nokia Theater – NY NY – Capacity 2150

    MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods – Mashantucket, CT – Capacity 4000

    Borgata Spa & Resort – Atlantic City NJ – Capacity – 3700 (Or 1000 for the Music Box)

    Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – Capacity 6500 (different stages)

    Hope all the AL fans enjoy their idol’s concerts!

  134. I think the fans who thought he could sell out big arenas are the ones who visit another planet. Of course, I do think he will get there eventually. ;-)

    They only place I thought he could sell out a 5000 seat might be NY or LA.

    I’m still not crazy about the fair route but, since I’ve never been to a large one, I really don’t know how that works. I just can’t see bigger name stars at those types of fairs. However, I know the Big E gets big names. I’m going to that fair this year so maybe my POV will change once I actually attend a large one.

  135. Based on the prices and the # of seating, I don’t see Adam making a ton of money off this tour. He’ll probably making it off merchandise. It will be interesting to see how well he sells these tickets.

  136. Oh ksgirlforc… why so grumpy? There has been no expectation that Adam would be playing arenas.

    Not being grumpy. Just stating a fact. Last year when Cookie’s tour was announced all the non-fans criticised him for playing small venues. Now all of a sudden it’s respectable? There was speculation that AL was “too good” for playing festivals and casinos and that casinos were just a “warm-up” to his real tour. God I love revisionist history.

  137. Archie did a solo tour and played venues like Nokia and the Starland Ballroom. His shows w/Demi Lovato were bigger venues. Adam’s gigs are similiar to a combo of Archie’s theatres and Cook’s casino gigs so far. I don’t see too many House of Blues venues yet.

  138. I wasn’t around when the David’s went on tour last year. I just want Adam’s tour to be successful and I want to go to as many as I can. I don’t ask for much…LOL

  139. The whole point of touring is to get your music out there in front of the public. Cook did it by going to colleges, Theatres/HOB’s, Casinos, outdoor venues & fairs. I am so glad he did, since I got to see him in all of those kinds of places (except for a fair) and the vibes can be very different. He was very generous in touring in the Midwest and East. Thank you, Mr. Cook. It will be interesting to see where Adam concentrates his efforts, as new tour dates will be added as time goes by, I’m sure.

  140. We don’t even have all the dates yet to say for sure what type of venues Adam will be performing at.

  141. I still don’t see Adam doing town fairs and that crap- not that it’s beneath him but because of the dancers and lights and everything just seem like they would stick out like a sore thumb. People who go to county fairs want some blue collar rock like Daughtry or Cook. Or country. i don’t think it is snobby to say that those aren’t the type of gigs for Adam. he should be in theaters and anything with great acoustics because first and foremost people are going to hear that voice.

    Lady Gaga started out opening for the BSB, then did small theaters. Jason DeRulo is doing a stint at the college by my house and I don’t live in a big city by any stretch of the imagination. Train is playing one of the same gigs Adam is and they have a top 5 hit all over the world.

  142. There was speculation that AL was “too good” for playing festivals and casinos and that casinos were just a “warm-up” to his real tour. God I love revisionist history.

    Perhaps you should have read all they were talking about when the discussion of casinos came up. there where people worried that all Adam was going to do was play casinos because there were people under 21 that wanted to see Adam. Also that the concerts were only 1 hr long. Monte tweeted that the first few casinos where one off to reasure the fans that wasn’t the only kind of gigs they would be playing as well as the length of the sets would not be 1hr but longer. Thats where the “warm up” converstaion came up. And yes the casino gigs were “warm up” gigs. The band wanted to practice playing in front of a live crowd and well as make enough money to pay the band and the crew. There is no revisionist history just people not reading everything or making assumtions based on person opinion.

    I have (I am very sure) read almost everything posted about Adam on this blog and no where have I seen an overall general opinion that Adam is “too good” for anykind of venue. Those posters were in the minority at best. If you have proof that the majority of us Adam fans have dissed playing at fairs and casinos please show us.

    I don’t know about the fairs where you live but some of the biggest festival type fair gigs where I live are huge. Really big names play them and a vary diverse collection of artist play them.

  144. Not being grumpy. Just stating a fact. Last year when Cookie’s tour was announced all the non-fans criticised him for playing small venues. Now all of a sudden it’s respectable?

    So what you are saying is that back in January of last year, posters who would later be identified as rabid Adam fans criticized Cook’s upcoming tour venues??? At the time of the tour announcement, AI8 audition rounds were in process. AI8 hadn’t even started yet!
    Perhaps those who were critical of Cook’s tour weren’t just future Adam fans. “Cookie’s non-fans” may not be Adam fans. I know I’m a fan of both guys.

    I can just speak for myself, but I wasn’t even on this blog when Cook announced his tour. I never criticized Cook or Archie once concerning the types of venues they were playing. Neither did I EVER say Adam should be playing large arenas. Why would I expect Adam to play bigger venues than Cook? He won- he sold more albums- why wouldn’t he be doing bigger venues?

    God I love revisionist history.

    Maybe you should go back and look at the dates and you can see that criticism of David Cook’s tour had nothing to do with Adam or his fans.

  145. How are county fairs crap? It’s insulting that some second plce reality show loser is “too good” to play at one.

    Thank you! This was helpful!

    Contrary to what two or three posts have stated, some Adam fans are actually also fans of other idols. I would love to see a Cook concert and plan on seeing him when he does his next neverending-tour. LOL I have enjoyed reading about and watching the vids from Cook’s and Archie’s shows last summer and fall. I also appreciate any information that die-hard fans of other idols can pass on to help fans with Adam’s upcoming tour.

    Thank you very much for the information. This Adam fan is very appreciative. I think we all should be this helpful to each other when it comes to out Idols. I love David Cook too though so it may be easier for me. ;-) But seriously enough non-AI fans like to bash any of our idols. If we acted more in the generous spirit that you show here….Imagine (nod to David Arculeta)

  148. Re Oksana2000 – I got an email from the Magazine joint that said RS had underestimated demand and they had to cancel my order. How can RS have underestimated demand when they already had one sell-out? GRUMP.

  149. So, do we feel pretty sure this is a “partial list”??? I don’t want to assume that there may be a better choice in the making and not take advantage of the ones listed already. None of these are close to Mississippi, flying makes me sick, and I really don’t want to drive the distance–although I did drive 10 hours to St. Louis to see Adam on the Idols tour last August. My traveling friend wants to fly. She’s a Nurse Practitioner, so I can understand her wanting to cut time away from the hospital. Oh well. Decision, decisions.

    So whataya think?? Had I better get a bird in the hand?

    ETA: I’m leaning to NYC or Atlantic City–probably rather have Atlantic City.

  150. I’m from the SF bay area…I’m hoping he comes here cuz if I have to get on a plane again to see Adam (flew to LA for Leno, FS and Gridlock), seriously, my husband is going to have me committed, LOL!! :)
    Anyhoo..fingers and toes crossed!

  151. Ceddies
    Adam stated he will be touring for 2 1/2 months. So we are still waitinf for July and Aug. Dates.

    Though I understand not wanting to assume. Seattle gets skipped by a lot of tours (which I really don’t understand) I heard Cook didn’t come to Washington state last year on his exstensive tour. My biggest fear is they will take forever posting the rest of the dates. I find out there is no Seattle shows and I will have missed out on buying tickets to California shows because I was hopeing there would be some close to me :'(
    Cuz who knows what’s gonna happen in the future. Adams next tour if his overseas stuff does well will be over there. And we don’t know if he will tour again. Arrghhhh Debbie downer again

  152. 10dogmom
    I don’t think Rolling Stone Japan counted on fans from other countries snapping them up lol…they really don’t understand us Adam fans.

  153. Though I understand not wanting to assume. Seattle gets skipped by a lot of tours (which I really don’t understand) I heard Cook didn’t come to Washington state last year on his exstensive tour.

    Smeggingnuts, David did three concerts in Washington State, actually back to back:

    8/23 – Yakima WA – The Capitol Theater

    8/24 – Seattle WA – Showbox

    8/25 – Spokane WA – The Knitting Factory

    – but not until August – six months into the Neverending Tour. I believe the distances are counterproductive in the northwestern US, it’s just much further between venues, and the whole country can’t be covered in two and a half months. Still, frustrating as hell if that’s where you live – I have a friend in Oregon who was convinced she would have to fly somewhere to see DC…and she would have been correct, if the tour had not been extended over and over.

    Since there is an obvious correlation between venues showing up so far, maybe call these and try to find out if they are even negotiating with AL’s booking agency?

    Moral of the story, I think, is get the closest tickets you can, as soon as you can. Get on Ticket Bastage and go for it. *wink* They are, not surprisingly, easy to sell if you find a more convenient venue pops up….and it may, but If it doesn’t, you don’t miss the chance to see your Idol. The first tickets I bought when the tour began were for a venue six hours and two states away, but at that time, it looked like it was as close as I would get. Since I can tell that you folks feel about AL the way I feel about David Cook, I figure you will also feel it’s worth it.

    JMO, of course.

  154. Lol 2 states away for me is 24hrs in Californina. Since I can’t picture Adam doing a lot of gigs in Montana….cuz if he plays montana and now washington I am gonna be super pissed

    Last year when Cookie’s tour was announced all the non-fans criticised him for playing small venues. Now all of a sudden it’s respectable? …[snip] God I love revisionist history.

    ksgirlfordc: Please don’t assume that just because “non-fans” here at MJs criticized Cookie for his tour venues last year that it was future Adam fans doing the criticizing. As far as I can tell, many of us Adam fans here at MJs are new within the past year. (I discovered MJs in May 2009; didn’t post for the first time til Jan 2010.) The people posting do change over time, you know. If you were to go back to those original Cookie threads that you’re referring to, I’m pretty sure that you would likely see that it’s a different set of people criticizing Cookie than those of us here excited about Adam’s tour.

    I for one would never criticize DavidC’s venues. I like him. And I think that mid-size venues are the way to go for both DavidC and Adam. I will be thrilled for the opportunity to see Adam in whatever venue he and his team deem appropriate. No revisionist history here. Peace.

    Since I can tell that you folks feel about AL the way I feel about David Cook, I figure you will also feel it’s worth it.

    Incipit… thank you SO MUCH for helping out us Adam fans based on your experience with Cookie’s tour last year. Your generosity of spirit is much appreciated!

  156. Lol 2 states away for me is 24hrs in Californina.

    Heh. Smeggingnuts, that’s exactly the problem with a tour needing to cover as much territory as possible in a finite amount of time also trying to include the Northwest states. Everything is far apart, and the bus driver has to sleep sometime. Rules, and like that. DC said early in his tour it was one of the things he hadn’t considered. But I hope AL comes within striking distance for you…I’m sure they will schedule as many stops as possible.

    Cwm, other posters who are DC fans have also posted here, and added their encouragement, and good wishes for this to be a wonderful time for the AL fans – we know how much it matters. That our preferences in artists and voices are different, well that’s completely subjective, doesn’t change the good wishes, KWIM? ;)

  157. hey incipit, thanks for the AL info. I bookmarked the site. And fyi, I absolutely loved Cookie doing Jumping Jack Flash. That was awesome. However, methinks we have been abandoned here. lol Smegs will probably check back here later.

  158. Incipit… I totally know what you mean, thanks. I appreciate all of the fans here helping each other out and providing encouragement, no matter who their favorite is. Call me crazy, but my hope is that all of these Idols find success and happiness in the business, in whatever form it takes, and for their fans to find enjoyment and excitement in their favorites’ music. Good wishes all around! :-)

  159. Nokia Theater – NY NY – Capacity 2150

    this is where I hope to be seeing Adam. I was all fangirlie and excited over the news so I called the Nokia Theater asking when tickets go on sale. Heres a piece of that conversation:
    me: good afternoon would you happen to know when tickets to see Adam Lambert go on sale?
    guy on the phone: Adam who?
    me: Adam Lambert, American Idol, that Adam?
    guy on the phone: His appearance has not been confirmed.
    me …… and if ya did know, you cant tell me. thanx anyway.
    calling amex
    the guy from amex said tickets for June 6 go on sale April 24 he said tickets for June 22 should go on sale a week later.
    crappy seats thats what using amex has gotten me in the past
    anyone have any dates for ticket sales?

  160. Yep, Cher and cwm, we have indeed been abandoned here – ;)

    There’s an old time donnybrook on another thread…26 pages liberally spiced w/snark, looks amusing, but I haven’t time to read it.

    lamslova, you gave me a deja vu flash – I did want to add that early on the box office personnel may be the worst source of time sensitive intel – left hand/right hand never meeting – and different answers for each different person you speak to. Hopefully someone on your official website keeps a calendar, (that was my function last year, calendar keeping) or your ticket source will put up information for the ticket release date and moment.. Email and/or Twitter sometimes work better, if they are responsive. You wanna be right there, on T, because the secondary market skimmers are trying for tickets too. Good fortune with that, it can be a crap shoot

    According to the Nokia hyperlink – they are using Ticket Bastage, of course. I would watch either their listing or the Nokia web page itself too, use them for intel.. But your Amex source could easily be telling it straight – just double check them – these things go on sale very early.

    Hope it works out.

  161. God why won’t they post the rest of the dates already….I hope we dont have to wait a month more for July then another month for August :( this is really starting to depress me again

  162. Hang in there smeggs! He’s bound to come to Portland, Seattle, or SF, right?? I’m willing to go north or south.

  163. I just wish they would post them so I know which one I need to try and get tickets. They have on sale dates for some.

  164. Yep. That would be torture if they made us wait another month for July and August dates. I’m hoping they will be posted within the next few days.

  165. haha at this point waiting a few more days is tourture (haha) since we don’t really know how long we have to wait. Come on people at least drop us a bone….

  166. Maybe you should go back and look at the dates and you can see that criticism of David Cook’s tour had nothing to do with Adam or his fans.

    I love having words put in my mouth. I said NON-FANS, not Adam fans.

  167. I’m alittle confused then. If your comment ksgirlfordc wasn’t directed at Adam fans. What revisionist history are we talking about for Adam’s tour? If it was Cook’s non fans who were making snarky comments about the size of some of his venues what does that have to do with Adam or his tour?

  168. Some pre sales start this week and we still don’t have all the dates. I wonder if they will post tomorrow when we get the email from his website. I need to make plans!!!! :)

  169. You and me both…right now the closest I got is the fair and that is the first one to go on sale…but I am really hoping that isn’t the closest/only one on the west coast -.-

  170. Ok, so I’m registered on ticketmaster and created an account on AdamOfficial. Is there anything else I need to do on AdamOfficial to ensure that I get emailed the codes for pre-sales?

  171. Yep, I’m on the email mailing list too. Now we just cross our fingers and wait for Northwest dates, eh smeggs?

  172. hmmm FLAE…..maybe FLEA instead…could now say…Yep I’m FLEAing hahaha

  173. I am waiting for the pre-sale code from adamofficial….anytime now. There’s only 2 1/2 hours before the presale begins..!!!!!

  174. YAY!! Just got my tix for the Costa Mesa show. Although I couldn’t get 4 seats together for me and my 3 girls (17, 19, 21) but I got 2 in section 3 (evidently no tix in the pit or cirlcle). I kept trying for 4 tix together but most of them were WAYYYY back. Kept trying and about 15 min later I got 4 tix in section 8 row B (not as close as I would have liked but oh well). Guess I ended up with 6 tix after all so my oldest daughter can invite 2 of her friends (all 3 of their boyfriends/husbands are Marines and just deployed a few weeks ago). This should make them happy!

  175. I would have wanted circle tix, but they werent offered at the Costa Mesa event anyone guess why not? I never got a pswd from the OC fair amphitheater, but i got my AO one.
    well I got 6 tix in pairs of 2, so I am happy! Now we will buy some shirts we can glam up for the event. Rhinestones and glitter YAY!

  176. I never got my OC Fair password either. Oh and now my child says her friends can’t come. What? Oh well…guess me and my kids will have to be split up because I’m not giving up my section 3 seats for anything. I suppose the only thing I can do is try again to get 4 seats together…closer. Although, I seriously doubt that will be possible.

  177. Congratulations to all of you who got tickets! (*taps foot trying to be patient waiting for Northwest dates*)

  178. Thank you MJ for this site! and everyone who contributes to it. Last summer I patiently waited (and tried to listen to) all the Adam live streaming hoping against hope that he would someday travel to the Midwest and I could experience the LIVE ADAM. Because of all of you giving info about early ticket sales I was signed up with Adam’s official site. Low and behold I now have tickets for the Council Bluffs show,I can barely contain myself!!
    If anyone is near Omaha,Ne the Iowa venue is just across the river,we have a great city and I hope he has a great turnout for this little neck of the woods. Woot!
    Thank you everyone for all your postings

  179. Yea – Council Bluffs! Who would have thought?! Went to Idol Tour in MSP last summer to see Adam, but this is much closer. Received the notification for early sales and bought 4 tickets this morning. I hope Alison is performing that night too. It is going to be fantastic to see him in person at his own show!

  180. tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap………where are the frikken Northwest dates people…….
