  1. Thanks smeggs for putting up that beautiful poster and the gorgeous charcoal from Weelassie of Lindsav’s pic.

    You were a busy girl today from all of your tweets. When do you sleep?

  2. I am here in Richmond, on the floor, packed like sardines. I will post pix and vids later. I’m on Twitter and YT as cookiefan09.

  3. Ali looks beautiful,skinny, but beautiful. Hope she is taking care of herself. Can’t be easy with all the goodies fans bring. That cake was huge!

  4. Hmmm, Cake – where’s the cake? Adam looks gorgeous in brown, soft and seductive~ is the cake chocolate?
    mlg_0621 you just keep giving – thanks, we all look forward to each poster ~ you spoil us!
    Ali is looking edgy – beautiful pic ~
    jenipop looking forward to the videos –
    settling in for another night of Adam love, hi everybody~

  5. To reiterate what I said in the last thread, many, many thanks to the Creative Genius who makes the posters, as they only get betterer and betterer!!!!

  6. Thanks Smeggs and MJ for the concert thread. I love the poster, his eyes look like he’s hiding a secret.

  7. Ok I’m not home yet don’t know if there is a DH yet can’t check my email right now.

  8. I was not going to read the thread tonight but, I can’t resist. lol
    I guess I will glitter up my nails and read the thread at the same time. :)

  9. I heard the traveling DH is gonna be with us tonight, but not sure.

  10. AdamisGodXXX thanks for the pic of the cake, now, that is rather delicious looking, deep & dark!

    I am here in Richmond, on the floor, packed like sardines.

    Sigh. Sold my tickets to Richmond, didn’t think I could do another GA venue. So I am perversely glad to hear that it is sardine-y….

    Ron, it’s been sold out for a long time. Even as recently as last week, resale GA tickets were going briskly for $70 (about twice face value).

    My french is worse than my english.
    Help needed, please.

    My French is a little rusty, but I believe it says that Allison is gorgeous and rocks it out like no one’s business. Then it mentions how hot Adam looks in his Voodoo outfit and the sexy, exotic dancers around him. It talks about how fun DTRH is and moves on to Adam’s intriguing Ring of Fire. The article raves about Fever and the pretty kitty that Adam makes purr. It discusses the beauty of the acoustic section and the operatic soaring of Adam’s voice in Soaked. Next, they rave about the sexiness of Adam in that striped jacket playfully wielding that cane and the joyous elation of IIHY. They also floved the encore. They also slipped in there, quite a few times I might add, what a sexy beast BB is. And that he has the voice of an angel. Yep, think that about covers it. Guess my French was better than I thought! ;)

    Hi gferna
    Maybe this link to adamofficial can help : Adam Lambert Breaks Records in Quebec
    http://www.adamofficial.com/us/news/

    Oh, crap, lovingadam. Now everyone will know that I was lying about speaking French…

  14. Yep, think that about covers it. Guess my French was better than I thought!

    Tres bien fait, AdamisGodXXX! Felicitations! (pardon, stp, la manque d’accents. Impossible ici.) :)
    This was a test… :)
    Oh, never mind. I was trying snark and it doesn’t work in print, really.
    But it SHOULD have said that!

  15. Adamisgodxxx, you kill me! You must be fluent in French. Hah. I think you should write for SNL. Then, when our darling guest hosts, which we know is inevitable, we know he’ll be in adoring hands.

  16. Is kradamour swearing at me? Anybody?

    LMAO, AdamisGodXXX! No, see above, I edited my post.

  17. Oh yeah, forgot to translate the part where they interviewed Adam and he said he couldn’t wait to meet milwlovesadam and adamisgodxxx and give them a whole lotta love.

  18. A question. I would really like to see the front row pull out fans and fan themselves during Fever. If I passed out fans tomorrow night would I be scorned? Is this too embarrassingly stupid? They are pretty and all colors.

  19. kradamour:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!

    That’s not stupid at all … it’s very clever! No one’s done anything like that before, to my knowledge, and I’m sure Adam would get a big kick out of it! I’d go for it!

  21. kradamour, excellent idea with the fans.

    Adamisgodxxx, we all know(hope)Adam follows us here from time to time. Perchance we could ask him if he does?

    Bruises? Took out my research spectacles again. Methinks it is glitter gel gooped up and sliding around, due to the usual suspect, **sweat**. If it is bruises, hell hath no fury like a swath of Glamberts descending upon the bruiser. Adam has said many many times, he’s a romantic, not into that kind of stuff. Take warning, best be nice to our boy!!

  22. Ashley and Ron and milw – thank you for validation! I’ll take them with me, then. (And Ashley, be sure to ask me for one!)

    Another question. I was thinking of passing out pimp sticks for strut (can you tell I live a block from a novelty store?).
    Also a good idea or should Adam have the only one?

  23. Oh, who knows, maybe the troupe was trying out some new dance moves. we all know Adam takes a tumble once in a while. Sometimes on national TV.

  24. Another question. I was thinking of passing out pimp sticks for strut (can you tell I live a block from a novelty store?).
    Also a good idea or should Adam have the only one?

    Haha, it’s a cute idea but, how would that work?
    That could get dangerous. lol

  25. kradamour, no sticks. Someone could put out an eye. And from the looks of it, no sticks needed. Tigger was back last night. Beware front row.

  26. Was wondering if I could even get them into the venue, actually. Probably best to stick with the fans.

  27. milwlovesadam:
    08/27/2010 at 8:28 pm

    chuckle. put out an eye…can tell you’re a mom, milw! and double chuckle for the rest… :)

  28. kradamour:
    08/27/2010 at 8:25 pm

    Another question. I was thinking of passing out pimp sticks for strut

    Another good idea. You’re a fun lady! ;-) (But, I already knew that!) Are you yourself going to be in the front row? Or, would you be giving these things to the people who are there? I’d like to think of you as being a participant!

  29. milwlovesadam:
    08/27/2010 at 8:31 pm

    Yeah, see my last post. Sticks not needed.

    I approve only because I have a collection of walking sticks (and Top Hats for that matter). I’ve had both for years so Adam is copying me. :-) I do see though that the sticks might be a problem.

  30. Ron, YES! I did GA in Norfolk, bought GA tickets for Richmond (it’s my birthday tonight, so I justified a second concert), and then decided I was worth a reserved seat and sold them. Found the closest venue with a single front row seat, Raleigh, and bought it. Then found cher and Ashley, so I will be with friends after all. Have since learned that there is a pit in front of me :( but it is a small pit. (They don’t get fans. :) )

    I still love the idea of the pimp sticks but it probably isn’t practical. Sort of like Adam’s flaming headdress… :)

  31. Okay, everybody, let’s all hold hands, and sing, “Kumbaya”, sway and put it out to the universe….somebody, please make me an offer on my ticket to Rockford. I am fun to be next to, I promise. I don’t scream, I dance nicely in my own space. I’ll talk nice. I won’t make fun of anybodies clothes or outfits or glitter. I’ll try not to sweat on you. Or faint on you. I’ll hold your stuff(camera, etc) while you go pee, if you’ll watch mine. I’ll take your picture. Please.

  32. kradamour:
    08/27/2010 at 8:38 pm

    it’s my birthday tonight

    kradamour :!: :!:

    HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY :!:

  33. kradamour, I vote yes on fans, no on sticks. It’s a great idea. Are you thinking for after the Tommy kiss?

    Ron, can’t you just tell that was kradamour’s sly way of letting us all know that she is in the front row? Didn’t fool me for a minute, but then you’re much kinder and trusting than I am. : mr green :

  34. (it’s my birthday tonight, so I justified a second concert),

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
    Can’t wait to meet you and Cher!

  35. Hey, why didn’t my green smilie work?

    Happy Birthday, kradamour. Now I have to take back that stuff I just said. Gifting yourself front row is a beautiful thing.

  36. Chuckle to AdamisGodXXX, and many thanks for birthday wishes. (AdamisGodXXX: Right after Tommy kiss: perfect!)

    Ashley, I am so glad that I bought that single ticket and will meet you and Cher, too. :)

  37. smeggs, I dont’ know if it’s your doing or not, and I meant to mention it last night, thanks for putting a link to the previous concert’s thread up top. That is pure brilliance. Well, it makes my life somewhat easier, at any rate.

  38. Gifting yourself front row is a beautiful thing.

    Awww…merci, AdamisGodXXX.

  39. kradamour:
    08/27/2010 at 8:47 pm

    Ashley, I am so glad that I bought that single ticket and will meet you and Cher, too. :)

    Sorry, I’ve lost track. Is this in New Orleans?

  40. somebody, please make me an offer on my ticket to Rockford.

    I have thought about it several times. I missed the Milwaukee show, but still deciding if I want to drive 5+ hours and back on a holiday weekend, alone :(

  41. Thanks, Adamland! :)

    Ron, no, it is tomorrow in Raleigh.

    (But I would love to laissez les bons temps rouler in NO, what a wonderful city and bound to be an awesome GN concert!)

  42. Sagi: just do it! Pop in your FYE CD and sing along and before you know it, five hours is up! You’ll be so sorry if you don’t. Go, go, go, go, go. Did I mention I think you should go? Do it.

    Someone asked me too haha can’t take credit for it.

  44. Happy Birthday kradamour!
    I just caught up on the last thread and noticed that madnessinmotion has a question about the change in location of the Des Moines concert. I did a search and this link gave the best photos of what this will look like. I don’t think it’s too encouraging. I’m sort of disappointed. I have the feeling that the only ones who will be able to see will be those really close to the stage. I’m not that tall and I don’t think I will be able to see over anyone. At least at the Amphitheatre the grass was sloped. Oh well we’ll just have to throw some glitter on that bridge and have the best time.

    Ron, no, it is tomorrow in Raleigh.

    Oh, Tomorrow! For someone who’s supposed to be in the loop, I’m out of the loop too many times! :-) Very happy for you guys!

  46. Fyi, the Canoe article regaring Adam in Montreal raves about Orianthi not Allison.

    You’re welcome. I’ll celebrate your birthday in spirit when I’m back home in NO for Adam’s concert. Want some beignet mix while I’m there? Sending a cooked beignet wouldn’t work. Or how about me sending you a King Cake?

    Hey you guys remember John Moser? The guy that kept compairing Adam’s and Selena Gomez’s shows at Musikfest. Well surprise surprise Adam made Top 5 of his favorite shows there haha and so did Gomez lol

    After all that “fuss” months ago with Moser his conclusion about the concert season is a little ironic. He sang the praises of Gomez back then but he puts her at #5 while putting Adam above her at #4 in his Top Five.

  50. No problem AdamisGodXXX; My Montreal roots and ability to talk french
    are at your disposal.

  51. He sang the praises of Gomez back then but he puts her at #5 while putting Adam above her at #4 in his Top Five.

    That was my favorite part. :)

  52. Thanks for the entertainment, smeggs. Okay, now answer my question — when do you sleep?

  53. Hi Soberba

    16 more days, right? Or, am I once again confused. :-) Actually, confused is my normal state of mind. :-)

  54. AdamisGodXXX:

    Thanks for the entertainment, smeggs. Okay, now answer my question — when do you sleep?

    err….winter??? haha I usually sleep about 4-5 hrs in the wee morning. I am a night owl

  55. uh oh

    WARNWILLIS Big middle finger straight in the air for the national theatre in Richmond.. You know who you are, cuz the rest of the day went really well

  56. Want some beignet mix while I’m there? Or how about me sending you a King Cake?

    Lovely thoughts! I order king cakes every year for my students, and we make beignets from the Cafe du Monde mix, and they make pralines. I do a whole unit on the French in Louisiana and we listen to http://www.radiolouisiane.com so they can actually hear that yes, French is alive and well in the US. Getting hungry now. The national convention of the Alliance Francaise chapters in the US is meeting in NO this year, BTW.

    (and thank you for birthday wishes, Soberba!)

  57. I went back and looked at the photos showing the changed venue for Des Moines a week from today. I don’t think we will even have the dancers. That stage looks like the band barely fits. But somehow the band they showed was using lasers? Or maybe that was just some other lighting. On top of maybe no dancers we will be bathed in street lights! Trying to keep my mood positive. Not easy right now.

  58. Hi Ron!!

    No, you’re not confused. 16 days to New Orleans!!! I’m so excited! But I still can’t believe I’m gonna see him. I can’t wait!

    Throw in a hurricane from Pat O’Brien’s and show me where to sign up for your class.

  60. Just catching up. Beautiful poster – a person could get lost in those eyes.

  61. Sagi, definitely agree that you should go. Driving is so safe in these days of cell phones, and with Adam in the CD player to keep you company you will not be alone. :)
    Heck, our place in Maine is a 14 hour drive and I have driven it alone many times without a second thought.
    If you have any idea at all that you might regret missing the opportunity, just GO!

  62. kradamour:
    08/27/2010 at 9:24 pm

    we make beignets from the Cafe du Monde mix

    Okay, I’m guessing … a beignet is a kind of pastry? A strudel kind of thing with frosting or a doughnut? Or, I’m totally off base which is more likely. :-)

  63. Finally, got my avatar to work. Looks kinda dark but I think you all know the picture.

  64. haha I am finishing readying the rest of last nights thread and saw this posted. I can totally see my hands and my camera LOL

    haha and AdamisGod
    I hope you were enjoying my romance novel tweets lol

    Beautiful writs there smeggs :mrgreen:
    And I loved your romance novel tweets too :lol:

  65. Sagi: just do it! Pop in your FYE CD and sing along and before you know it, five hours is up! You’ll be so sorry if you don’t. Go, go, go, go, go. Did I mention I think you should go? Do it.

    I have never been to Rockford, I am so terrible at directions, I am freaking out that I will get lost and end up missing Adam anyway. Thinking, thinking… My luck my car doesn’t make it! (omg, I sound like a pessimist!) I could make this work, I bet!

  66. Finally, got my avatar to work. Looks kinda dark but I think you all know the picture.

    It’s ghost voodoo adam, yay!

  67. So I fianlly got my Jim Cantiello T-shirt in the mail today hehe Jim even signed the shirt…but I can’t remember which show he worn this on…I remember the shirt but can’t remember when he worn it lol

    Hi Ron!!

    No, you’re not confused. 16 days to New Orleans!!! I’m so excited! But I still can’t believe I’m gonna see him. I can’t wait!

    Thank God … I got something right! :-) Will this be your first trip to the U.S.? You’re going to be in such great company! I’m really looking forward to your first Adam experience! It’s gonna be great!

  69. @VAidolfan: Cool security gujard dancing with ujs in the balcony

    haha I am guessing this is one security guard that wont make people sit down

  70. I have never been to Rockford, I am so terrible at directions, I am freaking out that I will get lost and end up missing Adam anyway. Thinking, thinking… My luck my car doesn’t make it! (omg, I sound like a pessimist!) I could make this work, I bet!

    Of course you could. I used to teach in Freeport, next to Rockford. It is not a huge metropolis! You could even borrow someone’s GPS, but a good printout from mapquest would do the trick.

    YES you could make this work! :)

  71. Sagi, please give it a third thought!

    Happy Birthday Kradamour. I’ll take a Hurricane and Bananas Foster from Brennan’s please. I’ll take the seat next to Adamisgodxxx in your class. But only if she promises not to put gum in my hair. I hate it when she does that. But, she can pass me love notes about Adam anytime. And, hey Ron, no paper airplanes for you! Be good for once. Can you?

  72. Ron, a beignet is a square, fluffy, powdered sugar dusted, delicious sort of doughnut. No hole in the center so more to enjoy! The Cafe du Monde is open 24/7 serving billions of them, even more than McD burgers! :)

  73. Hey sagi, I’ve never been to Rockford either. It’ll be 2 hours each way with Holiday and construction traffic. If you are serious, just give me your e-mail.

    Jojosie, what happened, are you going to contact me? I e-mailed you.

  74. I’ll take the seat next to Adamisgodxxx in your class. But only if she promises not to put gum in my hair. I hate it when she does that. But, she can pass me love notes about Adam anytime. And, hey Ron, no paper airplanes for you! Be good for once. Can you?

    sigh. This sounds just like my class. :)

  75. Beignets and chicory coffee, a delicious New Orleans memory. Thanks kradamour!

    Hey, any word on who made that cake? Was it Ace of Cakes? Maybe they will have a show about their GN cake. Black icing stains gums and tongues. Come on baby, show us if you ate cake today…

    milw — I promise no gum, but I’d definitely have a go at your hurricane.

    sagi — What about the possibility of renting a car? Or find a friend to go with you? I lived in Rockford back in the ’80s and right now I’m wishing I still lived there.

  77. OMG I just saw the Key of Awesome have a add on the DH and they showed the one they did of WWFM ahahahhaha ADam is everywhere….even when your watching ADam

  78. Thank God … I got something right! Will this be your first trip to the U.S.? You’re going to be in such great company! I’m really looking forward to your first Adam experience! It’s gonna be great!

    Yep, first trip to the US. Just hope they’re gonna let me in.

    I’m going to have a pre-show dinner with 40 other fans. It’s gonna be crazy fun. And there’s a after show party. And I thought I was going to be alone…
    I’m really looking forward to my first Adam experience too! I’m sure it will be epic.

  79. RL has kept me away. Could someone fill me in on the cake? Thanks.

  80. On the DH, good views of that picture that had everyone speculating a couple of threads ago.

  81. kradamour:

    sigh. This sounds just like my class.

    Well, what do you expect when you serve your kids hurricanes, lol.

  82. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRADAMOUR! MY IT BE THE GLIITTERIEST AND GLAMTABULOUS ONE EVER!!!

  83. You can hear everyone singing along. Sounds fun, but can’t hear BB enough.

  84. milwlovesadam:
    08/27/2010 at 9:38 pm

    And, hey Ron, no paper airplanes for you! Be good for once. Can you?

    Good for once?! I’m surprised at you … I’m always a good boy! When I feel like it. :lol:

  85. Singing along with what do you want from me – sounds so nice!

    Thank you for birthday wishes! and actually I am totally enjoying spending the evening with you guys. Yes, glamtabulous! to be continued in Raleigh tomorrow… :)

  86. Hee, Ron, depends on who you’re talking to. Baebs, any input?

  87. OMG Soaked is a sing-along too! and it sounds lovely.

    edit: except for the drunk members of the audience who are calling out stupid stuff.

  88. OMG, follow the bouncing ball, it’s a sing a long! Anda one anda two…

  89. He sounds great! I wish the audience would show a little more respect!

  90. milwlovesadam:
    08/27/2010 at 9:52 pm
    Soberba, which show are you going to?

    New Orleans. Are you going too?

  91. edit: except for the drunk members of the audience who are calling out stupid stuff.

    I might need one of your “pimp sticks” for tomorrow, just in case someone starts yelling during the quiet part. lol

  92. Whoever is doing the dh is doing a great job. Nice sound and a very good picture. Makes for a nice evening.

  93. No Soberba. I’m going to Rockford. Two hours is as far as I can afford to travel this year. New job, no real time off or money. You’ll love New Orleans. It is so beautiful. Take time to see Jackson Square and the Garden District, French Quarter. Ride the streetcar. Eat, eat, eat. Best food in America. Sorry everybody else, but NO is foodie town. Do not even think of dieting there. Shrimp, Po Boys, the above mentioned beignets, chicory coffee, King Cake, anything etoufee, Hurricanes, Bananas Foster. Drooling now.

  94. smeggs, thanks, cheeks is so cute and funny, why aren’t they still a couple? Friends, oh well.

  95. I might need one of your “pimp sticks” for tomorrow, just in case someone starts yelling during the quiet part. lol

    chuckle! they will, you know…but in Richmond, alcohol is way too accessible during the whole set. Like Norfolk. The two venues are owned by the same people.

  96. Bonne Fete Kradamour! Peut-etre un morceau de tarte au sucre avec de la crème fouette pour celebrer?!

    Maybe Adam will sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to you tomorrow!

  97. Milw: My personal favorite: Gumbo and let’s not forget muffalettas and sucking the heads off crawfish. I just don’t know how I’m going to accomplish all that in a day and a half.

    I think baebae is out whoring on a date tonight. She traded in her iTouch for the real thing, lol.

  98. Hou la la, AL Lurker – j’en ai tres envie, d’un morceau de tarte au sucre! Helas, on ne la trouve pas en Virginie…faut attendre ma prochaine visite a la belle province! :)

  99. milwlovesadam, thanks for the tips. I think I’m gonna have to pack my stretchy pants. :)

  100. Pimp stick on the DH. Oh, well. He works it better than we ever could.

  101. How could I forget the muffaletta at the Central Grocery? You can keep your crawfish heads though.

    I think the NO show will be epic. So Voodoo. Wonder what Adam will be up to in off time there. My imagination runs wild.

  102. I might need one of your “pimp sticks” for tomorrow, just in case someone starts yelling during the quiet part. lol

    Now there’s a plan!

  103. Hey guys No habla frances que soy muy estupido usted hablaria por favor espanol. Porque me no habla que cualquiera.

    Hey guys No habla frances que soy muy estúpido usted hablaria por favor espanol. Porque me no habla que cualquiera.

    How is it you can spell in Spanish, but not in English?

    No comprendo.

  105. Smeggs, tu eres una peraona muy especial. Yo hablo con tigo todos los dias.

  106. Sorry, smeggs! We were just talking about maple sugar pie with whipped cream…a specialty of the northern French speaking North Americans…

  108. LOL! That Monte is nobody’s fool — playing straight to the DH.

  109. OMG Soaked is a sing-along too! and it sounds lovely.

    Soaked as a singalong? OMG…….that is just so wrong.

  110. By the looks of the DH ,we should have lots of sweaty neck pictures, yummy.

    Que no comprehendo ??? I am a very special person and I speak with something total all day????

  112. Smeggs, you are a very special person, and I talk with you every day. Sheesh.

  113. How is it you can spell in Spanish, but not in English?

    No comprendo.

    Well spanish is easier to spell lol english is a messed up language and that is about 70% of what I know in spanish

  114. kradamour,

    I read earlier that you are going to bring fans for Fever but ruled out pimp canes for Strut. Maybe you can bring masks like the dancers wear? Can you imagine the complete first row all in masks? That would be give Adam something to comment about!
    This is turning into a Rocky Horror type of experience if there are props and sing alongs to every song!

  117. revcat, great pralines in the French Market, next to the river, in the Quarter. Meet ya there!

  118. Soaked as a singalong? OMG…….that is just so wrong.

    No, Clearone, it was actually very nice. (or at least I thought so) It was quiet singing, not boisterous, very sympathetic. Surprising.

  119. No to Portugeuse, we have a hard enough time in English apparently!

  120. AL Lurker, I totally picture it like that. I would have fans for fever, pimp sticks for Strut…other ideas for other songs. It could be a party could be ecstasy! :) :) :)

  121. Smeggs,
    please let me know if any of the pics are good ones tonight. I’ll be in and out. Have to make some cookie dough for hubby and won’t have a chance to go thru every one.
    gracias

  122. Kradamour

    Joyeux anniversaire a toi!! J’aime le mot…helas. so glad you used it.

  123. Smeggs
    I think the last one you posted is a good one of Adam. Love the look of his hair.

  124. Adamland,
    must say that thread pic of Allison looks great. you took a good one. (along with many other good ones) Haven’t checked my email yet today but will after the cookie dough is in the fridge.

  125. I used to go to Rocky Horror back in the day, many many Saturday nights at midnight. Madison, Milwaukee. Used to bring bags of stuff. The theatre managers started banning it. Then the audience started to dress up instead and act out the show.

  126. Funny all of you talking about NO. Cable tv is running a program about Katrina. It’s the 5 year anniversary. It’s sad that the city still needs so much help getting back some of the normal things. Sorry this is OT.

  127. Why do they shut off at the best part of TCB? Maybe to catch bendy backward Adam mopping the floor. Hoping……

    Well, I finally joined the rainbow guys club and got a free toaster oven. Baebae is supposed to be bringing the strudels.

    …singing to IIHY…

    If I had strudels, that would be the only thing I’d ever eat.
    Yeah if I had strudels then bacon, toast and waffles never could compete.
    If I had strudel, days would be all breakfast, petit dejeuner.
    Yeah if I had strudel,
    Stru, strud, strudel
    Stru, strud, strudel
    Stru, strud, strudel
    If I had strudel…

    Sorry got inspired while listening IIHY on the DH and I’m hungry! ;-)

    OMG, AL, your avatar is great. Did you have to make that yourself or did it come with the membership? Love your idea about the masks. Wow, that would FREAK them out, wouldn’t it.

    I like this whole RH idea. kradamour, I do believe you’ve started something…

  130. milw, a cinema here in Norfolk still does Rocky Horror every month. There is a cast of locals that perform the whole movie on the stage while the film rolls behind them. Too funny.

  131. Uff!
    Best stream ever!!! Glamtraveler must’ve been in the first row.

  132. Weelassie –
    That photo of Adam and Tommy is a keeper. They look beautiful!!!

  133. smeggs,
    did you know that an S between two vowels is pronounced like a z?
    sorry, couldn’t resist. hugs. man Ron will have something to say about that.

  134. Merci, weelassie! moi aussi j’aime le mot helas. It is like the sigh that it represents.

  135. Had a blast, what an amazing show. I will post vids when I get home. Got a 2 hour drive. My YT name is cookiefan09.

  136. AL, excellent avatar. Excellent lyrics. Just remember to invite Adam to brunch. He’s very good at “mopping floors.” That’s for Baebs and Ron, I hear they leave crumbs.

    when I was in a French Lit class, I used to use it all of the time. My professor probably thought I was a bit daft because I am sure no one else used that word but i love it.
    ok, gotta go and make the dough. I’m procrastinating.

  139. Did anyone here go to see the Grease singalong? Seems like a fun idea.

    I was pulling your chain about lazers.

  141. Tonight’s show seemed to be a great one!
    I have to hope that the third time is the charm though. :)

  142. @milwlovesadam Okay, please send me info/details about that ticket if you would :) I will get back to you tomorrow on that if that is okay. I have worked 12 days straight and I have to catch some serious Z’s now that the DH is over! :)

  143. AL Lurker:
    08/27/2010 at 10:36 pm

    Well, I finally joined the rainbow guys club and got a free toaster oven.

    I told you that you had to join if only to get the toaster oven … and you got it! :-) In light of that, you’re avatar is too funny!!!! :lol:

  144. AL Lurker: Adam just called and wants you to help him write lyrics on his new album, clever boy.

  145. shall I hop in and post in German???? Well, after I walk my dog, who again had to wait for the DH to finish…. he is so hating this Adam thing I have … hahaha

    Happy Birthday kradamour!
    I just caught up on the last thread and noticed that madnessinmotion has a question about the change in location of the Des Moines concert. I did a search and this link gave the best photos of what this will look like. I don’t think it’s too encouraging. I’m sort of disappointed. I have the feeling that the only ones who will be able to see will be those really close to the stage. I’m not that tall and I don’t think I will be able to see over anyone. At least at the Amphitheatre the grass was sloped. Oh well we’ll just have to throw some glitter on that bridge and have the best time.
    http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=116994780&blogId=537431076

    Hey, rainbowgal, thanks for responding. I would never have thought of closing off a bridge to create a concert venue but I guess you do what you have to do when you get flooded. :)

    I did an internet search, too, and found these pics someone took at a Devo concert on the Walnut Street Brigde. The people really are standing on the bridge so I guess that map I got in the e-mail was accurate. Since I am flying in very late and will barely have time to get to the show on time I was concerned at first when the map placed the concert right in the middle of the bridge.

    ETA: Oops, forgot the link in case anyone is interested.

    Smeggs, your spelling is perfect, but the last sentence doesn’t make any sense. Hahahaha. Do you know what it means?

  148. kradamour, we have an old 1920’s theater in grand tradition, Baroque, ornate, gilded, that has the longest running midnight shows of Rocky Horror in the country. A TV special was made about it. They had a 25th or 30th anniversary party here with much of the cast. It is unbelievable. Still runs every sat. at midnight. They do the same re-enactment too. My hairdresser plays Columbia or Magenta depending on her mood. OT, but fun.

  149. HAPPY BDAY KRADAMOUR-YOUR AMAZING, AWESOME, AND YOU ROCK SOOOOO HARD—NEVER FORGET THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    OMG, AL, your avatar is great. Did you have to make that yourself or did it come with the membership?

    Yeah, I made that myself. Didn’t even get a card when I joined and the free toaster oven wasn’t even rainbow colored. :( Had to sprinkle some magic glitter on it (Weelassie uses it too) to get it the way that I wanted! ;-)

  151. I like this whole RH idea. kradamour, I do believe you’ve started something…

    Thanks, AdamisGodXXX. Each song has a fairly obvious prop. Not sure I would do anything for the acoustic songs, though, they need to be left alone. (No sponges for Soaked, for example.)

    Wish I had been braver about this and asked for your opinions earlier, I could have organized it for tomorrow. We’ll start with the fans, though.

    Yes, it is nice to have Adam in our state, isn’t it? :) And it looked like he really enjoyed the audience in Richmond so I hope he will remember that and come back for his next tour! AND I hope that you will be able to see him then!

  157. madnessinmotion
    Do you have a link to those Devo photos on the bridge? Would you please post it? Thanks. It will be a new and different experience in that kind of setting. Wow if you are coming in late you may end up in the back with my friend and us. I will have to think of a way to identify myself in case we get a chance to meet.

    lol! was reading last night thread earlier today at work, so couldn’t watch vids, just happened to look at the SFW/IIHY and just have to say wow! Adam really was going commando in those, he probably shouldn’t be “shaking” that much, with so little support underneath, was really showing…um…yeah.. wow, I think that was a tad too much shaking for me, just a tad and the camera was soo close up, so nsfw…

  160. Soberba
    and the reason that last line probable didn’t make any sense it becase the the line is I’d rather see than be one….not exactly standard english lol

    24/7/365 – or anytime!

  167. I’m surprised that Midwesttix is taking a hard line, they are not offering refunds because of the venue change. I’ve never been to Des Moines so I don’t know firsthand, but it seems likely that moving from the Amphitheatre to a bridge will be a significant downgrade for the attendees. Long and narrow “venue” with much of the crowd pretty far away from the stage.

    ETA: of course the vast majority of the crowd will want to attend regardless of the venue, but it still seems to me that offering refunds would be the right thing to do.

  169. rainbowgal,
    I would love to meet you and your friend. Meeting other fans/MJers/Glamberts has been a major highlight of my GN experiences so far. I will be meeting up with goatiegarden and JoJosie at some point that evening for a 3-show road trip but they will both be there way earlier than I will so they will probably be towards the front.

    Lawn chairs were going to be allowed at the Simon Estes Amphitheater and goatiegarden was going to save me a spot. Not sure if that is still going to be in the works or not since I have not seen any lawn chairs in any of the pictures I have seen of people on the bridge. btw, did you see that I added the link to the pictures in my previous post.

    On the fan site I will e-mail you my phone number so hopefully we will be able to meet up.

  170. thanks sagi. I friended you and sent you a message over there too, just in case.

    Come on … you have to be more specific than that! I’ve invited 178 people to your home and we’re all waiting to know when it’s going to happen! After all, we’ve got to break in that new toaster oven. (In light of that, your new avatar is too funny!!! :-) )

  172. Omg, lol, listening to Katy Perry Peacock, sounds a lot like hey mickey in the chorus

  173. Marie23:
    08/27/2010 at 11:13 pm

    Yay I have 701 pts for future tbd stuff at ALF yay!

    How did you manage that? I only have 654 points. I have to wonder what that converts to? $1.50? I have no idea.

  174. Good night everyone. Busy with RL tomorrow, sniffle, moving son to college. Egad, I feel old from this. But very young when it comes to Adam and fangirling. Sorry Ron and AL, make that fanpersoning.

    Smeggs, as usual, you rock my socks off!

    08/27/2010 at 11:24 pm

    *sigh* I only have 804 points

    HaHaHaHaHaHaHa … okay, rub it in. :lol:

  178. milwlovesadam, thats one of my favorite things about Adam. He makes me feel so young!!! Have fun saying goodbye to your son. Look on the bright side….you will have more time to flail. :)

  179. I only have 154 points. I suck :(

    What are those points for, anyway? (if I can make this question here?)

  180. I honestly don’t know how I got all those points, I think you get like 50 pts for like every 15 or so fans, and like 500 pts for having 50 friends, that’s all that I really know, have like 55 friends, (It’s not like I know all of them but…just keep adding) k I need to stop listening to Katy Perry my ears are starting to hurt, she do sounds a little like a mix between Alanis Morisette(sp?)and Michelle Branch, (who sounded like a lesser version of Alanis but i digress…)

  181. Okay, so I’m not in bed yet. Went “over there” to pimp my poor ticket. Ron, I do wonder about the points. I am quite the skeptic, and if we had to buy M&G’s, what do the points mean? Do we get points by purchasing merch? I hope not. Seems too pimp and whore to me.

    Okay, I really am to bed now. Sigh, last night with my real baby at home. Hah, some baby, six feet tall, 185 pounds, full beard. I am so pathetic.

  182. I don’t really know what they’re for actually, I’m guessing that you’ll be able redeem them for future merchandise etc or something..

    Oh Peacock from Katy Perry is “nice” haha, Adam should really do what Jim said the other day, and do a sequel called Cockatoo lol

  183. Late start tonight but here’s my two cents worth: Prosze mowic po angielsku, ja nie mowie po francusku. Mowie troche po hiszpansku. Dziekuje.

  184. Lost my post – hope not a duplicate.
    Anyhow – re marks on Adam’s arm. Saw Richmond? Q94? interview pics – nos. 9 and 10 showed what looked like bruises – still glitter? got me.
    Find TJ very pretty, but sexless. Very elvish (unfortunately not Orlando B) – now that would be interesting. IMO lacks energy and oomph. But Adam likes him – maybe because he doesn’t have “big arms.” And the interplay (if you’ve seen it for the first time – well, maybe more for some) seems to get the desired reaction. A big yawn here. The tongue-diving far hotter as unexpected and had no idea who he was going after. The gif for that is really terrific.

  185. Spent my $30 on Adam’s site and have 0 points. Probably gonna stay that way. BUT, will renew membership in September – boy needs money.

  186. slightly_askew My fave part (among the many) was when he said “Hey there, Delilah!” after Cam’s solo. lol. awwww.

    Well I guess we know why they shipped Neil keyboard lol

  187. eywflyer
    I agree with the refund idea but I don’t think that will happen. Their bottom line would be in the red for this summer. In reading about the venue change I saw an article that stated only a few concerts took place at the amphitheater. Most of those scheduled had to move to the bridge or elsewhere. I’m more concerned about the size of the stage. I don’t see how he can have the dancers up there. I looks like there is barely enough room for the band!

    madnessinmotion
    Before I turn out the lights tonight I will check my fan page for your number. I also have goatiegarden’s phone number. Both she and jojosie have m&g passes. I will see them there as I have one too. That sort of takes the sting out of the venue change. I may not be able to see him during the concert but I’m glad I will be close during the m&g. Looking forward to meeting you.

  188. LeeTravers, didn’t you get at least 1 point for joining. If not, they really stiffed you!!! :)

    Anyway, it only takes 5 friends to start gaining points and once you start its addictive.

  189. I have a m&g for Peoria. I had to skip on Des Moines because of getting in so late. Sadz. You guys are going to have to give me all of the details and rub it in that I missed out. :)

    Goodnight. :)

    Sigh, last night with my real baby at home. Hah, some baby, six feet tall, 185 pounds, full beard. I am so pathetic.

    No you’re not pathetic at all. I’ll never forget my mother trying so hard to keep herself together when I left the nest but, in the end, she couldn’t and broke down and cried. The way you feel about your son couldn’t be more normal. It would be odd if you didn’t feel this way. You’re a good mother, milwlovesadam.

  191. Dear madnessinmotion – the only thing I find addictive is Adam, his performances (live and YouTube), pics, interviews, reviews – the points things (whatever it is) seems like a grocery store game. I’d rather just send him a check. Wonder if he’d cash it. Certainly owe him for all the fun I’ve had.

  192. madnessinmotion
    Thanks for the link to the Devo show. Now I feel better if that is the stage they bring in for Adam. But I still wonder what the view will be. Usually for me it’s looking at the back of the person in front of me. Maybe I could practice with some stilts until I leave on Thursday. LOL I promise we won’t rub it in too much and I’m glad you get to do a m&g at one of your shows. I only get to go to Des Moines. We can only leave our business for a couple of days at a time. Being your own boss has many advantages but long vacations is not one of them.

  193. arsleybear

    I MET ADAM AND ALLISON AND MONTY AND LIZ AND TOMMY OMFG!!!! I GOT ALL THEIR SIGNATURES TOO!!!! EEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1 minute ago via txt

    I have a feeling I’m not going to be this lucky. lol
    It would be nice though! A girl can dream…

  194. LeeTravers, I guess I have an addictive personality because I am addicted to all of the things you are plus connecting with his fans on the site, on MJs, twitter and in person. It all gives me a natural high!!!

    Hi Lee! I only did the $9.95 membership. Please let us know about the personal letter from Adam that comes with your membership. Personal? Pen to paper? I’ll be interested to know how that turns out.

  196. SashaMallory Soo were now passing out pieces of the cake from earlier… Don’t wanna waste it :P

    well at least we know what happened to the cake

  197. I have a feeling I’m not going to be this lucky. lol

    I wasn’t expecting to meet any of them when I went to my shows. But managed to meet Monte, Cam, Terrance and Adam. You never know and I have the crappiest luck

  198. LeeTravers:
    Very elvish (unfortunately not Orlando B)

    awww i love elves, especially Orly/Legolas but Elrond, not so much.

  199. Ashley
    Yes you can dream. But remember what Adam did. He put it out there to the universe and it happened for him. It could happen for you. I had my ticket for the Des Moines. Then one day I found myself wondering what I would say to him if I had the chance. I told my self don’t be silly. You’ll never get close to him. Then along comes the fan site and the m&g passes. I was lucky enough to get a pass. And now I can say to him what I want. So you see putting it out there works.

    Lee: Sometimes it takes a few days to get the points up after you join. You get points for friends too so what’s your name so we can all friend you, or would you rather not?
    smegs: Sorry, I know we’re not supposed to talk too much about TSTMNBN. I’ll behave.

    I have a feeling I’m not going to be this lucky. lol
    It would be nice though! A girl can dream…

    Dorothy to the Wizard: “I’m sure there isn’t anything in that black bag for me”.

    Ashley You’re going to meet him! Cher will certainly take care of that for you! (Sorry, Cher – don’t mean to put that much pressure on you. :-) ) “A girl can dream” … I’m sure you’re dreams are going to come true tomorrow night and I can’t wait to hear all about it.

  203. Smeggs
    LOL LOL That really gives me an idea what the cake looked like!!! At least we know it tasted good.

  204. Ron:
    08/27/2010 at 11:10 pm

    Come on … you have to be more specific than that! I’ve invited 178 people to your home and we’re all waiting to know when it’s going to happen! After all, we’ve got to break in that new toaster oven. (In light of that, your new avatar is too funny!!! :-) )

    178 people! I don’t have enough china! And I’ll have everyone over the day before we all leave for Adam’s Wembley concert. I have plenty of parking space for brooms. ;-)

  205. Ashley
    Yes you can dream. But remember what Adam did. He put it out there to the universe and it happened for him. It could happen for you. I had my ticket for the Des Moines. Then one day I found myself wondering what I would say to him if I had the chance. I told my self don’t be silly. You’ll never get close to him. Then along comes the fan site and the m&g passes. I was lucky enough to get a pass. And now I can say to him what I want. So you see putting it out there works.

    Glad you got your m&g pass!
    I honestly don’t know what I would do if I got to talk to one of them. Especially Tommy or, Adam. I think I might be better off just looking. lol. Who knows what will happen though.

    I do know one thing, I can’t sleep. I need to go to sleep. We have a 3 1/2 hour drive tomorrow but, I am way too excited. I need to get over it. haha It is just a concert, he is just a person…or so people keep telling me. lol

  206. Ashley You’re going to meet him! Cher will certainly take care of that for you! (Sorry, Cher – don’t mean to put that much pressure on you. :-) ) “A girl can dream” … I’m sure you’re dreams are going to come true tomorrow night and I can’t wait to hear all about it.

    Ron, I love your attitude!!! :)
    Well, I have said many times…just being in the same room as him while he is singing is a dream come true. Anything else is extra. Still gonna dream though :)

  207. Do anyone know what the cake was for? Who gave it to him/them? Was it for some kind of celebration? Did a fan just decided to buy/make it for him? Was it from the radio station? Or manager etc?

  208. Ashley
    Have fun at your concert. And remember to keep all your doors open so you won’t miss the chance of meeting any or all of them. I know what you mean about not being able to sleep. Anticipation is such a part of the concert experience. Excitement abounds! Travel safe and I look forward to reading your recap of your night with the Glitter One!

    Al Lurker
    You will have room for more brooms for those who won’t RSVP. Mines a compact!!!

    Smeggs

  210. I have no idea what the story behind the cake is just that Sasha tweeted a picture of it today LOL

  211. Ron – just wanted Adam to have my $30 bucks – didn’t care about the rest of the stuff. Would have done the $175 and then sent some pretty boy if I could have. Have no desire to press the flesh or have a pic taken with him – WTH would I do with that? Frame it? Sheeeet – he’s always the prettiest one in the picture anyhow.

    About the cake.

  213. I have no idea what the story behind the cake is just that Sasha tweeted a picture of it today LOL

    and Liz Ann Hill tweeted another photo of it as well.
    I am thinking it is just a celebration of Peace, Love, Adam Lambert and the Glam Nation tour.

  214. kradamour
    You know anything new keeps this thread hopping. We’ve had the kiss, haircut, boa, faceless photo. Just to name a few. Keeps everything interesting and me from getting the sleep I need.

    Well, I finally joined the rainbow guys club and got a free toaster oven. Baebae is supposed to be bringing the strudels.

    …singing to IIHY…

    If I had strudels, that would be the only thing I’d ever eat.
    Yeah if I had strudels then bacon, toast and waffles never could compete.
    If I had strudel, days would be all breakfast, petit dejeuner.
    Yeah if I had strudel,
    Stru, strud, strudel
    Stru, strud, strudel
    Stru, strud, strudel
    If I had streudal…

    Sorry got inspired while listening IIHY on the DH and I’m hungry!

    Just got done watching two (2) baseball games on TV with hubby. (some things ya just gota do) After I escaped I decided to stop by here for a minute and see what’s been going on. You guys are decidedly more entertaining!!!!!!! Thanks for the laughs.

    We are inspired by Adam and are all here for our own entertainment. Definitely more interesting than baseball. We aim for hits, sometimes get foul balls (Ron, please change ;-)) and even strike out but we always go down singin’!

    Last night I was a bat. Now I’m a foul ball??! I did hang upside down from my ceiling last night when I went to “bed” but I don’t know how to be a foul ball. :-(

  223. RS – yeah, what a boring rag it’s turned out to be – wrinkled rockers and too many “singers” who can’t sing. And, as posted previously, the ketchup-slathered trio on the latest cover just got dumped in the circular file. An e-mail subscription renewal notice came in today – hey, babes, let me know when you cover Lambert’s tour.

  224. gferna: OMG that video is amazing. Wish I had the courage to base jump – never gonna happen but that video makes me want to do it.

    last night you were a swooper.

    That’s right … how could I forget that! ;-) So I guess I’m a bat that swoops and hits foul balls. The puzzle that is me is slowly coming together. :lol:

  229. Just got back from a late-night grocery trip and I’m all tuckered out. Goodnight you few die-hard fans who never sleep and keep the campfire burning while the rest of us dream of AFL and his many assets. See you in the morning.

    Ashley and kramadour, if you’re checking in before you leave, have a safe trip and fall into the glitter.

    Thank you. :)

  232. Got allison videos showing up so far Scars, Holiday, Still Breathing, No One Else and Beat me up

  233. Time to turn in. Have another day of rummage sale-ing. Makes for a long day. Smeggs thanks so much for the thread tonight and mj too. And thank you to everyone who made me laugh tonight. I need that. Good night.

    Ohh, I love a good enigma!

    Whew, I’m glad to realize that you used the word “enigma” because, at first glance, I thought you meant something else. :-)

  235. Allison’s good, but after a while, it all starts to blend together. Too bad Scars had such an annoying bunch of gasbags in the audience – that sounded really pretty. Adam obviously admires her talent considering she’s only eighteen. But, for me, it’s the music, not the age. A few years under her belt and her more annoying mannerisms will probably disappear. Have no real desire to hear her again at this moment in her career. Maybe wouldn’t have wanted to hear Lambert either at eighteen – who knows. (Judging by the HS graduation vid . . . .)

    Thank God … I got something right! Will this be your first trip to the U.S.? You’re going to be in such great company! I’m really looking forward to your first Adam experience! It’s gonna be great!

    Yep, first trip to the US. Just hope they’re gonna let me in.

    I’m going to have a pre-show dinner with 40 other fans. It’s gonna be crazy fun. And there’s a after show party. And I thought I was going to be alone…
    I’m really looking forward to my first Adam experience too! I’m sure it will be epic.

    You won’t be alone, trust me! Can’t wait to meet you there! You will love the French Quarter!

  240. The world’s most perfect nose.

    Plastic surgeons all over the world should hang this pic up as an ideal of beauty.

  241. As someone who plays with pictures, I want to add my two cents on how wonderful mlg’s posters are. It isn’t easy to get images to blend together. She does an awesome job concert after concert. Her posters are incredible and works of art.

  242. LeeTravers:

    I kind of have a thing for the eyes. lol.

  243. I kind of have a thing for the eyes. lol.

    I have always been an eye girl myself

  244. off for glitter dreams.
    again, thanks smeggs for conducting the glamtrain.

  245. Maybe I’m just too old, but I have no patience at all with the lack of common courtesy exhibited these days.

    To the point: I’m just sick and tired of all the extraneous crowd noise while Allison is singing – especially during Scars and No One Else. I don’t care if these people didn’t come to see Allison. I tried to listen to Scars tonight (Richmond) and the idle chatter was so loud and distracting that it made it impossible to appreciate the performance. People don’t act this way at the movies, and certainly not at “legitimate” theatre. I don’t understand why it’s considered acceptable at these concerts.

    I just think it’s downright rude and disrespectful. And I would say this no matter who was the opening act.

  246. Aftermath is up

    jordison
    if you listen to the aftermath video you can tell that the camera picks up all the ambiant voices around it…you can hear them talking through Adam’s stuff too…but I think we usually don’t hear it because the camera doesn’t pick it up this one does. And in all fairness Allison’s voice does project unless she is belting really load. I am not saying its ok to be rude or anything but this is what happens at concerts. *shrug*

  247. jordison
    You can’t have been to many recent pop concerts then. This isn’t a movie or a play, and it’s actually pretty typical unless the opening act has a big contingent of their own fans there. And yes, while it is rude and sometimes the crowd does really suck for her, more often than not she gets way more love than a typical opener.

    smegs: That’s also a really good point. When you listen to the youtubes, you are getting a distorted version, sometimes only slightly, but sometimes a lot. And people that are just a few feet away from the mic talking are going to be more amplified than Allison singing from the stage. So it might not have been quite as distracting in person. Still annoying though.

  248. Strut is up anyone else notice how headbangy Tommy was tonight lol

And yes, while it is rude and sometimes the crowd does really suck for her, more often than not she gets way more love than a typical opener.

    soverymel: I realize and appreciate that Allison does get a lot of love from the crowd on this tour, but I was just venting about those individuals who were chit-chatting, etc. And if people were doing this during Adam’s set, as pointed out by smeggs, then my comments apply to that as well. And, to be clear, I’m not talking about screaming or shouting, or singing along with the performers – I know this is part of the concert culture.

    I guess I was particularly sensitive because Allison poured her heart out during an especially emotional Scars – to the point of tears – during the previous concert. My impression, based on the sound from the video in Richmond, was that a large contingent of the crowd was talking over the performance. And I found that very annoying. Perhaps this perception was distorted by the recording device, as pointed out.

    And, although I did go to Costa Mesa, and enjoyed the entire concert, I haven’t been to many recent pop concerts. Just getting old and grumpy, I suppose.

  250. I have always noticed that the farther fromt he stage the less involved people get into the concerts and the videographer was pretty far back and it was a seated venue. I usually go to GA concerts which IMHO create a more participatory enviroment. There is generally less talking. I have also noticed that the older the crowd the less into the concerts and the more talking hahaha but thats just me. And I am just talking about pop/rock concerts here. *shrug* And also its just some area’s that you tour in. I remember that there was one show where the audience actually almost completely quite during Soaked except the pause…I was shocked. Then 2 shows later the crowd was really loud shouting Adam through out the whole song….haha

  251. Ok last one IIHY is up I posted a link to jenipop’s video page I will figure out best videos tomorrow but right now they are all at least up
    nite nite got to get up in a few hours

  252. Ashley You’re going to meet him! Cher will certainly take care of that for you! (Sorry, Cher – don’t mean to put that much pressure on you. ) “A girl can dream” … I’m sure you’re dreams are going to come true tomorrow night and I can’t wait to hear all about it.

    That’s a LOT of pressure, Ron. lol I would have no clue how to arrange that. I probably won’t meet him myself either, but that’s okay. Just happy to see him perform. As Ashley will too. Yowch!! Look at the time! Kradamour will be here before I get to sleep at this rate. The people in this house and even the dog have been asleep for hours. I hope they don’t wake me up for breakfast. :( Looking forward to a close-up experience tomorrow, uh, tonight. :) Morning, smegs. Kradamour and I will check in with y’all after the concert. Hope Ashley’s sis lets her do the barricades. :)I was asking my son or nephew to dh it but no go. They say it’s their 1st GN and no way!! They’ll be up and dancing and enjoying themselves. I lied to them about their seats. Told them I was in front row A after the pit but that they’re about 14 rows behind and my nephew said “auntie, you lef’us?” in our native patois. I said, “Yep, sorry guys”. Then the facetious reply from that nephew after the dirty looks from both, was, “Auntie, you got the front row because you wanna be tongue-dived, don’t ya?” I was speechless and said, “Where the heck did you hear that from?” And he said on one of the tabloid shows. I laughed and said “Nope, but I’ll send you to get one, you’re more his type.” lololololol I’m supposed to pick up their tickets at the will call tomorrow. Should be row C, two rows behind Kradamour and myself. Will have to tell Krad to take a pic of their faces when they go to their seats. heh heh

    178 people! I don’t have enough china! And I’ll have everyone over the day before we all leave for Adam’s Wembley concert. I have plenty of parking space for brooms.

    Tisk, tisk, we’ll use paper plates!
    Okay, I’ll be sure to let TLKC about this as she’s planning the whole Wembley trip for us. The day before Wembley … got it.

    WE WILL NOT USE PAPER PLATES. I was a china buyer for 10 years and I have 6 full “special occasion” dinnerware sets (with as many as 16 plates) stored under beds and in my attic which I never use. I will bring them (we might as well start off in style.)

    In Albany, LORISMILE told me she was disappointed that she didn’t have a job on the Wembley express so here goes: she gets to decide which ones of us get to use the bone china sets, the fine china set, the porcelain sets and the stoneware set. So be nice to her.

    I’ve spent the last hour checking out Staten Island, Roanoake videos. Nice to see that Tommy is now getting up on the coffee table and stretching out his arm with everyone on cue. Whoa! on the Adam/Terrance “Fever” moment. Loving TCB more and more with every performance.

    Need to check all your posts this evening. Hate missing your witty back-and-forth but I started a new job the day after I got back from Albany and it has taken a big chunk of my time.

    SMEGGINGNUTS: Love your profile notes on the new fan site. Also trying to find a bunch of the rest of you; guessing that some of you have slightly different names.

    Hope we get a U-stream tonight.

    ETA: my bone china sets have metallic trim so they have to be hand-washed. Behave or you’ll get that job!

  255. Wow, the audience near the person who filmed Allison sucked. I could barely hear her during her acoustic songs because everyone was laughing, talking and just being obnoxiously loud. How very disrespectful to the artist on stage.

  256. Hope Ashley’s sis lets her do the barricades.

    Me too :)
    Can’t wait to meet you guys!
    Once again, thank you so much!!

    It is always a good day when you wake up and get to say the words “I need to get ready to go see Adam Lambert”. haha
    I can’t believe I am saying those words…I am way too nervous. This is ridiculous. lol. Well, I guess I am not really “nervous” just, excited, very excited. Thank you to everyone who has wished me well on this experience. I really should start getting ready. lol

    Monte http://twitpic.com/2iuzhe
    Tommy http://twitpic.com/2ivdza

    I agree, smeggs.

    Because mlg is a graphic designer and catcher is a photographer, I think we’re definitely seeing different perspectives of art. Catcher is showcasing her photos, but her posters are a bit amateurish, especially compared to the fluidity and obvious professional composition of mlg’s posters. mlg is displaying her artist’s eye and love of subject matter in her composition while catcher is basically just displaying her photos. Almost apples and oranges, really. A labor of love for both, obviously!

  258. Smeggs
    Wow! Did you look at the pictures from the Polish article you posted above? Mainly this one:

  261. It´s amazing that after 50 shows Adam´s voice keeps perfect pitch! Outstanding vocals! And I just realize that now Adam and Tommy have the same hair style :) And I´m going to miss Longineu peacefulness!
    And note to Adam: steal Orí´s drummer once Longineu is gone :) It´s going to make smeggs happy and as long as she´s happy we´ll have threads for next tour :) :)

  263. what does it mean being original?im realy scared of his second album,i hope not be disaster as first album.

  264. what does it mean being original?im realy scared of his second album,i hope not be disaster as first album.

    Huh? Well your opinion, so feel free to skip the rest of Adam’s career. I am very much looking forward to the next album because I love FYE and I still am not tired of it. I have no doubt Adam will pour his heart and soul into it just like FYE and come up with something great especially with the luxury of more time.

    Now hush up and have a strudel. Strudels for all! See that? Even though I’m half awake, drained from my wh.. night out, I haven’t forgotten my duty as strudel provider.

  270. im heard that some reviewer said adam must be original so his careet get longetivity.thats why im saying what does it to be original artist?my english not good,thats why im asking.

    adam have huge talent but use it in wrong way,adam could make it big because everybody was waiting for his album,the cover was horrible,the song were auto-tone,which he dont need it,and the title of a song wasent unique.amas damage his fame.hes unique,awsome,very talented but hes need to be more creative.

    what does it mean being original?im realy scared of his second album,i hope not be disaster as first album.

    Geez, I didn’t realize that Adam’s first album was a disaster. Had I known, I wouldn’t have wasted my time listening to it everyday since I bought it in November 2009.

    Huh? Well your opinion, so feel free to skip the rest of Adam’s career. I am very much looking forward to the next album because I love FYE and I still am not tired of it. I have no doubt Adam will pour his heart and soul into it just like FYE and come up with something great especially with the luxury of more time.

    aa618892, I am looking forward to the next album as well. I agree that it will be just as great as FYE….probably more so because he’ll have more time to work on it.

    It is always a good day when you wake up and get to say the words “I need to get ready to go see Adam Lambert”.

    Absolutely! Have the time of your life, Ashley!

  273. adam have huge talent but use it in wrong way,adam could make it big because everybody was waiting for his album,the cover was horrible,the song were auto-tone,which he dont need it,and the title of a song wasent unique.amas damage his fame.hes unique,awsome,very talented but hes need to be more creative.

    tuti, you’re entitled to your opinion, of course, but I think Adam and a lot of people will disagree that he is using his talent in the wrong way. Adam is using his talent his way. He has said repeatedly that he has a lot of opinions and is not a puppet to anyone. He is unique and there is nobody like him right now in the music industry. As for being more creative, have you watched the GNT shows? Adam has creativity coming out of his pores. I love FYE and I’m sure I will love the next album, as well. JMO, of course.

  274. some of you seem blind to me,didnt evrybody said if he heat the right album he go straight to stardom ,it didnt happend,he should be no.1 on bilboard which he was no.3.he was the only star of season 8.i love him but now he changed,hes style is old not cool like usualy he wears.hes energy on tour is gone.because he was famous for electrifying,pushing boundaries and energy which he reduce it in his concert after amas as family friendly show.

  275. tuti- Sorry to see you are disappointed in Adam but I think you are in the minority here. I totally disagree with everything you have stated and I really don’t know where you are getting the idea that “hes energy on tour is gone.because he was famous for electrifying,pushing boundaries and energy which he reduce it in his concert after amas as family friendly show.” WTF? What exactly does he need to do to have more “energy” for you?

  276. Depends on what your idea of stardom means, but to me his record/single sales around the world, certified both gold and platinum, sold out shows, media attention, industry respect, and music charts, etc. -sounds to me like stardom. I think Adam is doing just fine with where he chose to take his career. And this is just the beginning. So I am going to hold on to my hat and enjoy the ride! :)

  279. daughtry maked 5million and im sure siobhan magnus make billion and no.1 on billboard and to stardom,but adam i dont know realy,just finger cross.i wish him best.

  280. tuti: Oh dear, I’m so sorry Adam did not meet your expectations. I’m really at a loss to understand what your expectations were. As for me, and I suspect many others, he has succeeded in exceeding even what I had hoped for him. I always knew he would be a star and in my opinion he is. He could have been a one-hit wonder as so many have been but he is building his fan base by leaps and bounds. And as for his pushing boundaries, geez have you not been watching the videos that have most of us on the floor after one watching. Thank you for wishing him the best. I think he’ll do just fine.

    mlg, you have truly outdone yourself. This is by far my favorite. Your sense of color is wonderful. I love Adam’s blue eyes anchoring this whole piece. Thank you, and I’m adding it right now to my ALF site!

    ETA: Dontcha just love that our glittery alien’s sight is called ALF?

  282. i just want him have long success,maybe other reviewer effects me,maybe im too worried about.reviewrs said adam in his concert dont see the electrifying energy and he didnt expand hes persona on stage.what do you mean magnus billion ok millions like daughtry.

    whats wrong with vh1 voting?

  283. smeggingnuts 3hrs sleep up b4 the sun no coffee and I’m wearing a pink tutu must be time for another training walk pls help http://tinyurl.com/yhsmz2j

    That smeggs never stops for an instant, does she? Such a good person. I just made a donation in her name to the Susan G. Komen 3-day for the Cure. You can, too, if you follow the link.

  284. Another great one, mlg. Although the photos aren’t my favourite, your composition is perfection.

  285. mlg_o621 – absolutely breathtaking! the upper right photo of him looking down with golden glitter on his chest, and turquoise in his ear – the perfection of his beautiful face – what more could anyone wish for?
    tuki – relax! remember this is a tour – and the clothes will be the same for each venue each night – the persona will be the same – electrifying – but with little changes – cause HE’S ALIVE! its not for us to worry just how much money he is making – just buy the albums – what did you expect for a maximum of three months collaboration – while he was yet on tour, making appearances, photo shoots – and all the rest? push the boundaries – don’t push the boundaries – “Everybody wants a little more” – how about the voice and the man? that alone pushes my boundaries right into bliss! We all want success for him – in this you are not alone!

  286. To be exact 59 shows…now it’s even more amazing..

    so He Has like more or less 10 more shows to go?..i’m gonna missed these tour thread when the tour ends.hope there would be for the international dates,no? :(

  287. they said that soibhan have energetic set and adam dont have that.i love them both,but why this comparision i mean im happy they complete one another.

  288. Tuti – aren’t you kinda putting the pressure on Magnus? billions? not quite yet -wishing her luck also – but…….billions?

  289. “They said” – yea, Magnus is energetic – you don’t think Adam is energetic? when has he stopped for a moment of rest in the last few years? each night giving, giving, giving –
    oh, and its best not to take everything critics have to say to heart – remember, they are just one person – one opinion – and not always the most informed
    If our Baby was anymore energetic he’d be bouncing off the Sky!

  290. Starry: If our Baby was anymore energetic he’d be bouncing off the Sky!

    Amen to that. And our collective hearts can’t take anymore, lol.

    they said that soibhan have energetic set and adam dont have that.i love them both,but why this comparision i mean im happy they complete one another.

    Not sure which review you’re referencing, but do you mean Allison? Otherwise, I don’t exactly understand the statement “I’m happy they complete one another.” If speaking of Allison, I understand since they’re on tour together. Siobhan has nothing to do with completing Adam in any way, shape or form. Not sure what this means. Anyway, we certainly understand that everyone wants what’s best for Adam in their own way. Thanks for sharing yours :)

  292. Starry: If our Baby was anymore energetic he’d be bouncing off the Sky!

    He’d definitely have to get better support. :D

    But I have to agree about his album. Personally, I found it too autotuned and overproduced. I love the songs, but I’d much rather have a cd of his live performances.

  293. i just want him have long success,maybe other reviewer effects me,maybe im too worried about.reviewrs said adam in his concert dont see the electrifying energy and he didnt expand hes persona on stage.

    tuti-90% of Adam’s GNT reviews have been glowing. Did you not read any of those? Even the sketchy reviews are hard pressed to come up with critiques of Adam’s voice and stage charisma. The VERY few critical reviews focus on Adam’s material and that is very subjective as you see right here on this thread. You don’t like Adam’s current material but I love it. They all seem to agree that Adam has unlimited potential and I think we all just need to give him a minute to reach it. I see the fact that he hasn’t blown up into mega stardom the way you seem to have expected as a good thing. Adam has been slowly but steadily gaining fans and respect all over the world and I don’t think we have a real clue yet here just how intense his international appeal is. This to me is happening more organically as little by little people all over the world are exposed to him and this is what will ensure his LONGEVITY. Much more important than a huge but brief flameout, IMO.

  294. Critiquing the Adam we see now is like critiquing the Mona Lisa before da Vinci painted her smile.

  295. mlg_0621, thanks once again for the incredibly awesome posters you are making. Every one of them is just beautiful.

    I have a special request if you ever have time to get to it. I saw where you went back and made a CM poster. My special request is a San Francisco poster. I would love to have one as a keepsake of my experience. Your posters are just amazing. I will understand if you don’t have time since I am sure the upcoming shows will keep you busy. :)

  296. There is no one on the music scene right now that compares to Adam, period. He doesn’t lip-sync, he can actually sing, write, dance, and rock out like no one else. He is just starting out in his musical career and undoubtedly will EVOLVE as time goes on, but one thing is for sure, he will ALWAYS do it his way. He is not EVER going to put music out there that he doesn’t enjoy or believe in or that doesn’t reflect who he is as an artist. Personally, I thank God for that….keep doing what your doing Adam, I am a fan forevah!!!!

  297. I think I understand where tuti is coming from. Several of the songs on Adam’s CD are a little over produced and that’s a fact IMO. I am hoping that one of the things he has learned by his major success on the GN tour is that he doesn’t need ALL of the bells and whistles included in every song to completely impress fans and critics alike.

    I don’t think we have anything to worry about, though. I personally can’t wait for his next CD but, even more so, I can’t wait for his next tour. IMHO, his live performances are what will insure Adam’s longevity.

  298. AdamisGodXXX: 08/28/2010 at 1:32 pm
    Wow, I love your analogy with Da Vinci. Adam Lambert is at the beginning of his “popstar career”…It is a work-in-progress. It would be different if I only see the end-result. E.g. I only saw Lady Gaga after she reached number 1 in the music hitlists many times… I had no idea about her struggles, how she changed up her act and her music.

    With Adam Lambert now and being able to watch all those youtube video’s and read blogs, I have the feeling that I am watching his life with a magnifying glass from the moment he got off American Idol. I was frowning at his missteps and smiling when he was able to work it out. Example: Debut CD is overproduced and according to what Adam says in some interviews, there are plans to make a CD with the accoustic version of some songs of the debut CD. Yeah, he is learning…

    I do notice that some reviews are not so good when Adam seems more tired (e.g. partied the night before or being ill), when technical support is off or the reviewer is prejudiced about the music (prefers e.g.rock music) or about the person. Once I even read 2 different reviews of the same concert. Beauty is in the eye on the beholder no matter how objective we want to be when making a review.

    Well, I hope I don’t have to swallow my own words after going to my one and only GNT concert (open air). Adam will be very tired because he has to perform shortly after traveling against the timezones… Who made that grueling concert schedule ? GGRRRRR^%R$^*^Ok Calm down… Think Da Vinci… Work- in- process. Even the tour scheduler has to keep on learning.

  299. @tuti: 08/28/2010 at 10:31 am. I am also scared of his second album. Am not really into “Pop Adam”… and I think he wants to go into that direction because he has more success there. Am more into “Rock Adam”… Even though I do love the USA cover version of his debut CD… So pretty :-). I do hope he goes more into rock someday. I love the song that he has put on the European CD ” Can’t let you go “(if I am not mistaken). I even look forward to a Broadway songs compilation (I once saw him singing Broadway tunes (from e.g.the Wizz) during an European interview).
    Then again, why should I be scared… it may cloud my mind and heart. I guess I have to stay neutral, wait and see and later on, enjoy the ride…eh I mean the 2nd album even though it will be probably more pop.

  300. Don’t know why pop has such a bad reputation – there’s good and there’s bad as in any genre.

  301. I must mention that the jenipop’s video’s she took are amazing, and the sound quality is just great! They are a must see!!!

    Thanks so much jenipop, for taking as much video, as you could. You captured some great footage! I was enthralled, with the quality.
    Also, a big thanks you to ElizaVideos, and noskerdycat as well!
    I don’t know how you all do this, and still flail over Adam?
    All you efforts are so much appreciated, and technology & the know how is just amazing.

    The poster for tonight is absolutely magical & bewitching! It most definetly comes through on this poster, that Adam is from another place. His imagination, and uniqueness overpowers!
    Thanks again mlg_0621, for your creative dedication for Adam.

  302. Home from round one of dorm move-in day. Pooped. Relaxing here for a bit before round two begins. Opening a can of Diet Sunkist Sparkling Lemonade. Mmm, so refreshing. Ok, that’s better. Catching up.

    Ron, if you are a bat, that explains why you are so BSC.!

    Was the hat cake or not?

    Baebs, missed ya last night. Did you have a good night wh, oops, out with your friend and ITouch?

    And, IMHO, everyone calm down, the second album isn’t even written yet for crying out loud. Adam is kinda avoiding true answers about it. He says things like, it’ll be pop, that’s what people are responding to. However, we know that Adam can sing anything, anywhere, anytime. We also haven’t seen him write anything by himself yet. He is co-writer on everything, and at that, mainly lyrics. He will need co-writers and backers. The acoustic CD will be an EP. Not a full blown album. Unfortunately.

    Time will tell. And, if he’s singing it, and promoting it, we will all love it no matter. He’s Adam F. Lambert.

  303. Oh, and BTW, I retract my post from last night, it does look like bruises. Not goopy glitter gel. WTF? I swear, if somebody hurt our BB…..

  304. tut, I think a lot of people had somewhat unrealistic expectations of Adam coming off AI.They expected him to be Subo and sale like 4 million albums in one week. I do think the award show debacle hurt him and through off his start but he has been recovering nicely and is definitely learning. I am really excited for his next
    Bum because I hope it has more identity to it. I know what to expect from a Pink album, or a Sting album. I still don’t really know what to expect from an Adam Lambert album. His second album will be as much a nail biter f or me as this first one. I for one like a diverse amount of music and love pop music I am hoping Adam has less ofnthe atmospheric stuff like Soaked(yes I know people love that but other than vocal showcase, it doesn’t do much for me) and more awesome pop like Fever. He needs universal themes and contemporary beats and rhythms to get that #1 hit and yes, that is totally what I think he wants. I want to hear him on the radio to the point that I am tired of him like I am of Gaga. All that being said, Adam is by far and away the most successful Idol off od S8 and is doing great as a new artist not appealing directlybto the teen/tween market. I really I totally thrilled with his success..

  305. what does it mean being original?im realy scared of his second album,i hope not be disaster as first album.

    I am just now reading today’s posts, and this comment does not compute? What disaster? Am I on the right thread?
    I love Adam’s album, and his bravery. His live performances, are so powerful vocally, and he entertain’s us to the max! His voice & personality alone, will take him on is journey to greatness! He is a unique being, and he has emerged as a bright star.

  306. Ya’ll know I love Adam’s talent more than any singer ever, but I agree with SOME of what tuti said..

    When he was on Idol.. and the music he did live before.. this album is not even close to the level of those expectations..

    Live he is still unreal.. so tuti’s deaf there.. but not one song on that album “blows me away”. I agree with her saying after Idol I thought he should be THE biggest thang ever.. He just had average songs.. and I don’t care what anybody says.. the producers sucked, I know “he had the best.. of the best”.. bull.

    Now live I love the songs.. but they screwed the cd up. He has way, WAY too much talent and style..etc to not have a smash classic. So I do KIND of see her point. but he’s still the best singer ever. and the way he makes those songs (his and Idol) his are unreal. He is by far my favorite singer ever, and music’s my first love.. well second to my family, but you know… and I just don’t like the album.. which shouldn’t be.

  307. Hi Mils. Thanks for noticing I was gone (unlike someone). Yes, it was a fine night, thank you.

    Could be that someone hurt him good. ;)

  308. I also understand where tuti is coming from. FYE is a good album, better than most of albums right now. But it lacks game changing songs, I would have never expected his first single sound like FYE, and even WWFM and IIHY are moderate songs from the album, my favorite are Sleep walker, can’t let you go and music again, fever BTW. I hope SW will be released as his next single because it appeals young, older, male and female I think.

    I also think album cover and AMA did not help but hurt him sell more album, I was supposed to buy multiple copies to gift to my friends before that, but I end up only download all his tracks. Of course this is history, it all passed I promise this is the first and last time I said it.

    Anyway, for his second album which I think it is even more important than the first one, he need take time and make sure there is at least one or two big hits before release it. No matter what he wants to be- a rock god or a pop star in his career (I prefer rock Adam as well), I will appreciate and respect his choice and enjoy the ride, but on the other hand, I do hope he can be appreciated by more and more people, become a world-wide superstar because he deserves it.

    I actually enjoy his pre-idol material, like this one below; it reminds me MJ for some reason. Have a good weekend everyone.

    Oh, what a fab idea! I was so bummed that Portland, Oregon @ The Crystal Ballroom, didn’t even have a picture, on the thread.
    My Portland concert experience, was a milestone for me personally. Just writing my re-cap was a therapy session, and I’m glad I was able to even write it.
    Dear Weelassie, it would be so wonderful, if you could somehow make a poster for Portland, Oregon. Go to The McMenamin’s, “Crystal Ballroom’s” site, for ideas: http://www.mcmenamins.com/
    It even has the eye of horus, and a crystal ball, & a lot of whimsy. I will be Crossing my Finger’s, and Toes!
    We were the only concert, so far to get an impromptu, “body roll lesson”…EPIC! Also, Tommy was not there, because of his father’s health.
    Each concert, has it’s own chapter & flavor, on The Glam Nation Tour.

  310. I just arrived home from Richmond and wanted to give you my recap before reading any of the comments. This was my 4th GNT show and the 2nd one that was GA. Again, although I wasn’t thrilled about it being GA, it worked out well for me, and this turned out to be my favorite show of the 4. I went with a friend from work who is a big fan of AI. We went to the AI concert together last summer, and her favorites were Adam and Allison. Needless to say, she was an enthusiatic companion on this trip. We couldn’t leave work until a little after 3 pm, and then had to drive 3 hours to Richmond. Not ideal for getting in line for a GA show. We had an stressful week at work, so my friend loosened up with wine while I drove. I brought some Lambic, a Belgian beer, for myself to drink in line. We were in line by 6:30, and by the time we entered at 7pm, all my stresses were forgotten. The National is a gorgeous renovated theater. The main floor was GA. The upper balcony was unreserved seats. We followed the advice that someone (smeggs, I believe) gave a couple of months ago, and made the beeline for the right side of the main floor and got positioned about 7 squished rows of people back from the stage. We could see really well. But the best part was that the acoustics were amazing! The sound mix and volume were perfect without any artifacts. Allison was great. I loved hearing a longer set from her, and actually being able to hear her sing without being drowned out by the band. Adam was on fire last night! Amazing vocals, dance moves, energy and charisma. It was mind boggling to be that close to him and hear that incredible voice live with perfect acoustics. Like I said after seeing him close up in Baltimore, the closer you get, the more gorgeous he looks. When he was standing on the right coffee table during the opening medley, he was right above us, and I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. I also really loved being close enough again to see his facial expressions as he dances. So fierce, so hot! The crowd was incredibly fun: full of energy, enthusiasm, and love for all of the performers. After the opening medley, Adam remarked on what an amazing crowd it was. We were surrounded by fun teens and 20-somethings. I was glad to see so many of the younger crowd loving Adam as much as we older ones do. This was supposed to be my last GNT show, but my friend wants to go to another, so we’ll see if we can work it out.

  311. mmm222: This was supposed to be my last GNT show, but my friend wants to go to another, so we’ll see if we can work it out.

    His shows are quite addictive, aren’t they? Glad you had such a good time and got a great spot in GA for arriving so late. Lucky you. And how great to go with a friend who is as excited and enthused as you are. Thanks for sharing your experience. Hope you “work it out” to attend another concert.

    Loved your re-cap, and especially all the details. Thanks for sharing it, and hope you can attend another concert! So happy for you, and your friend’s positive concert experience.
    The power of Adam lambert, is just beginning!

  313. I actually enjoy his pre-idol material, like this one below; it reminds me MJ for some reason. Have a good weekend everyone.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAaTSSEbjL4

    I absolutely love Adam’s pre-idol stuff like Pop Goes the Camera, Glamorize and Kiss and Tell and his Rock stuff with Citizen Vein. I believe though that Adam was asked in a recent interview if any of these songs would ever see the light of day and what I understood from his answer is that these songs are under some type of compromise with the producer that put out the Take One album which he was not happy about at all. Sorry I don’t have the link to that interview but I thought that was a shame. I think PGTC could even be a Pop hit.

  314. I just read the posts complaining about talking in the background during the videos of Allison in Richmond. No one was talking during either Allison’s or Adam’s sets where I was standing. Maybe that’s because I was surrounded by younger people who were too busy enjoying the music to even consider talking.

  315. And, if he’s singing it, and promoting it, we will all love it no matter. He’s Adam F. Lambert.

    So true! I know for one that I will LOVE his second album sight unseen or unheard. After all, it will have THAT VOICE!!! :)

  316. Thanks 8Jean8. You are so sweet for saying that about my videos. I am glad someone appreciates my hard work. It aint easy trying to film good video while watching Adam’s hotness right in front of you. He’s amazing live, it just blows me away.

    A review from richmond!!
    sorry if it had been posted

    http://www.mytimesdispatch.com/index.php/popculture/concert_review_adam_lambert_intoxicating_at_the_national/

    Love this review! I especially love the reference to Cher. She has always been a favorite of mine throughout the years. I have always admired her free spirit, great stage presence, and OTT style — especially regarding costumes. My husband and I have been fortunate to have seen her on multiple occasions at concerts since we have been married. In a small way, I sort of look at her as being a female Adam.

  318. tuti- I hope you read the Richmond review posted above. Wonderful, glowing review! This is how the majority of them have been tuti, don’t let the one or two get you down. Also regarding Adam’s album. I would like to remind people that FYE got some very good reviews, in fact it was one of the better reviewed albums last year, esp. for an Idol album. Yes it has it’s flaws but I am still enjoying it immensely and I know Adam will come up with something fantastic next time too!

  319. Yes! i also love this review!
    i hope adam has a chance to read some of the fantastic reviews, like this!

  320. dcglam:I agree with you about Cher. I think she is pretty badass, haha! Love her!

  321. Aaron Spears will be filling in for Valerie Franco on the drums tonight for Allison, per the tweet below:

    @tawneej That was me…I’m playing tonight’s set with Ali…I’m filling in for Val…Should be fun…I’m learning the music even now..

  322. With FYE album he had little time to decide anything. He has 2-3 radio friendly songs on there and 2 are out. With his next album he has to absolutely go radio friendly again as not all radio programmers are backing him. They reluctantly approve his songs for adds.

    Anyone who thinks he can just record rock and get played on the radio isn’t thinking about what radio is like here in the US. Rock stations scoff at anyone who comes off Idol. Adam would be treated the same or worse. Bottom line is Adam needs another solid pop album with some other genres mixed in to get a solid footing on the radio then he will have the leeway to do more rock, etc.

    Honey, we live for crisp video’s, with great sound! Your seats were so amazing. You captured, cute facial expressions, and his holy hotness essence, came right through to my computer screen. The lighting was especially clear, and I was amazed at the clarity, of your video’s.
    We are so blessed, with people like you, who really go all out, and give of themselves, during their concert experience. You did beyondo great, and I hope you enjoyed yourself!
    I look forward to your re-cap, of your total Adam concert adventure. Oh,…and Tommy too, because I remembered how you love him as well!

  324. Thank you, adamland – yes – a SOLID POP ALBUM to get on radio – from his interviews, he’s completely aware of that. Recipe for the success he wants.

  325. Adamland writes, “Bottom line is Adam needs another solid pop album with some other genres mixed in to get a solid footing on the radio then he will have the leeway to do more rock,etc ”

    I agree with this assessment, and I for one hope he makes exactly that. I want to hear his songs played on the radio until I am sick of them, LOL. And that could take a long time. :)

  326. Yikes, this Richmond, VA poster is not very good. That middle shot gives him a gigantic double chin.

    Thanks to all of you for a kind words.
    Weelasie thank you for your magic, last one posted by you, wow!!!!!
    To Ashley and everyone going for tonight concert have a great time! Enjoy! Have a nice weekend friends!!!!

  329. mmm222, I couldn’t agree more with your taste in beer. Lambiek is the best!! If only I would be able to get it as freely (and cheaply) as in my home country.

  330. I disagree that Adam’s first Album was a disaster. First remember it was done in 3 months while he was touring Promoting and a bunch of other things. He was being pushed to the limit one that most artist could never put out any good material. Also the music Adam put out and the vocal difficulty was far superior to 98% of what is out their. Now maybe there could have been better songs but again time frame, I’d say not bad and having a worldwide hit, not bad either given the circumstances. I am actually more worried about his second album as It seems to be he will be compromising more then the first. If you listen to his interviews he say the album will be filled with songs along the lines of WWFM and IIHY and though I like those songs they are not the best ones on the Album. IMHO. Those are SW, SFW, Aftermath (acoustic) Can’t let you Go, DTRH, Broken Open, Master Plan . (want to hear this at a concert for a closer or a great Pride rally song.)and Fever and I guess I would add Strut and FYE to it too. The songs that the Radio DJ or PD liked are what he is going to lean towards more on this 2nd album. That bothers me. The only reason WWFM and IIHY did well is Radio decided to promote them (and not even that much if you ask me) If FYE was promoted or backed as much it would have sold Platinum I am sure as it is it had no radio play and was basically killed an according to the recent numbers by Brian Mansfield the song sold over 330K that is not bad for a “flop” Heck there are songs that are more popular on the radio that don’t sell that much. Which to means that if radio played it people would have bought it more and the song would have sold better. It went Platinum in Canada and other parts of the world. Anyway I digress I think writing an album with songs that Radio will approve of and play only stiffles Adam creatively but on the otherhand it maybe what he has to do in order to get to the point he will be able to play record and produce and Album that is really Adam Lambert and Awesome. I feel that will be one that leans more towards Rock and lets Adam be Adam. I think the closest song to that is Can’t let you Go and really to me the best song vocally and musically on the album. (Though I love SleepWalker and Sure Fire Winners Too)

    IMHO regardless what anyone likes to believe Adam being Gay is difficult for many in the Industry to get past and he is going to have to compromise before they will accept him more.

    Say what you will but I honestly believe Live no one can touch him right now. Vocally, Staging and presence he is in a class by himself. (not saying other can’t get there or haven’t been there or better (Christina, Kelly, Freddie) but right now he is in the zone. Show me someone who is as good all around. Who is doing 90 show over 3 months and then doing overseas and doing a set that is as vocally challenging and able to do it night after night after night fantastically. (I didn’t say perfectly because he is not every night but that makes him even better) and the fact that he changes it up and puts different spins and actually sometime makes it even more vocally challenging just boggles my mind. He is unreal. But not perfect and I love him all the more because he is not perfect.

    Enough I just wanted to voice my thoughts in regards to Tuti. Who I know loves Adam and just wants him to be a success like most of us do. I don’t know where Adam’s path will take him but he will be successful and he will be a star (Just probably not at the pace I would like him to be or not at the level I believe he should be) but a success none the less ( Double chins and all) and that is Good!!!

    ETA Just saw Adamland’s post and instead of reading my long one you can just read hers and then I say- What she said :mrgreen:

    Thanks so much for the link Smeggingnuts. That is how I found them, in the first place! You are one of my hero’s here, and yes, Real Life, does need to be lived in. Well,…sometimes?

  332. dhunken…love your post..I am a little concerned about his sophomore album. I feel the majority of acts out there (don’t count Madonna, Gaga and the like) don’t do as well with the second album. Of course, I will love anything he does but I really really really want him to have a HUGE selling second album. I want him to have a ginormous tour playing larger venues…4,000 and up…more television exposure…the whole package! The whole world must hear that angelic voice. It’s starting, but too slow for me. I’m a worry wort too.

    Critiquing the Adam we see now is like critiquing the Mona Lisa before da Vinci painted her smile.

    Yes.

  334. Opening a can of Diet Sunkist Sparkling Lemonade. Mmm, so refreshing.

    Haha, milwlovesadam! As I read your post, I was opening a refreshing bottle of diet Mike’s Hard Lemonade! I strongly recommend it, but maybe after you’re finished moving your baby in. I can sympathize – I moved my 6’3″, 260 lb. offensive lineman “baby” into his college dorm a little over a year ago. It doesn’t matter how old or how big they are – they will always be our babies :). I cried all the way back from Kansas City to Dallas. But I can tell you that you will both be fine and you will be so proud seeing him grow and mature while away at school.

    Been busy with RL the last few days – gonna enjoy my “lemonade” and watch these amazing videos jenipop was so sweet to share with us :).

  335. Oh, I had a little Adam moment today. Went to the New York State fair. Had a t-shirt with “Adam Lambert” letters on the front. While walking through the crowd this biker guy stopped me and said “Lambert? I just saw him in Albany. Foxwoods and New York too” Asked him how many show’s he’s been at and he said five…I’ve been to four. Couldn’t talk anymore because I was with some boring people, but with his biker shirt/boots and bandanna, you would never think in a zillion years the words “Adam Lambert” would come out of his mouth!

    Luval Thanks for your “Adam Story” It put a nice smile on my face and is actually better to hear then whether Adam is still in the top 10 on VH1 Top 20. Real Life stories confirming Adam has fans from a multi-genre, ethnic, and economic backgrounds is where it is at. :-)

  337. Watched the jenipop vids twice already – among the very best I’ve seen of any of Adam’s performances.

    And with regard to the FYE album – Anoop was right – never should have used that pic for a first time out. Just added fuel to the fire and, instead of resurrecting glam, made being gay the focal point and not the wonderful music. The European release had the great photo – bought that for CLYG – the best song on his album.

  338. I am actually more worried about his second album as It seems to be he will be compromising more then the first. If you listen to his interviews he say the album will be filled with songs along the lines of WWFM and IIHY and though I like those songs they are not the best ones on the Album. IMHO.

    I don’t have a lot of time right now.. but I’m wondering if perhaps he mentions IIHY & WWFM because of what he does know as certain at this point in time…that he will be working with Max Martin. He doesn’t have anything written yet, so he can’t speak to that. Thats my theory and I’m sticking with it.

    I’m hoping he hooks up with Greg Wells again. *fingers crossed*

  339. weelassie– I just sent you a series of emails with pictures. :-)

    mlg_0621– I saw that madnessinmotion made a request for a San Francisco poster and 8Jean8 made a request for a Portland poster. I would love to second both of those requests! I was at both the Portland and SF shows and would dearly love to have posters for them. I totally understand if you don’t have the time or inclination to do it, since you’re trying to keep up with upcoming shows. But if you find your fingers itching to make an extra poster or two, I’d love posters for Portland and SF!

    I just want to say again how lucky we are to have both of you — weelassie and mlg_0621 — among us here at MJs. The art you create with the pictures we provide you is absolutely stunning. I have great admiration and much gratitude for both of you!

  340. MIL_0621: Lovely poster: beautiful pictures of Adam – every one.

    I agree with ADAMLAND: “Adam needs ANOTHER solid Pop album with some other genres mixed in.”

    Maybe I’m undiscriminating but I love FYE. I think Adam hit it out of the park. If we get another CD like that I will be over the moon. Once he’s established he will be able to take more chances. (Pretty sure he will, too.)

    MILWLOVESADAM: Didn’t know you were going through a “big good-bye” this week. I was reading an article about how hard it is to say good-bye to your kids when they leave for college. Hope you’re not too far away.

    In Cleveland we met a dyed-in-the-wool Country and Western couple who were attending several concerts. The wife heard Adam sing ROF and that was it for them.

  342. I’m not sure why there’s so much upset over Adam’s 2nd album having songs similar to WWFM and IIHY. IMO, those are great songs! Anyway, I have confidence in Adam and his ability to assess his market. He’s in a league of his own with regard to his talent, but he also seems to have the business savvy to go along with it. I think his sophomore effort will be radio friendly yet edgey enough to keep everyone talking.

    And with regard to the FYE album – Anoop was right – never should have used that pic for a first time out. Just added fuel to the fire and, instead of resurrecting glam, made being gay the focal point and not the wonderful music.

    ITA. And with all the amazing, sexy photos he’s had this past year, makes that choice all the more ridiculous. Hope Lee Cherry does the cover shoot next go around.

    I am a worrier too, but not bout Adam. The force is with him! We must trust in this force, because we know it is quite powerful!
    There is still Australia, Japan, Asia, China, Europe, Phillipines, and the UK..etc.

    Still keep working on David Bowie! There has to be a six degree of separation scenario, that has yet to be discovered.
    Just keep up the HOPE!
    Adam will keep up the Hotness!

  344. ETA Just saw Adamland’s post and instead of reading my long one you can just read hers and then I say- What she said :mrgreen:

    Thank you dhunken! But yours is a must read also. Thanks to anyone else who agrees with my assessment.

    Also that album cover photo was a tribute to what Bowie did in the 70’s – another bottom line is: it’s his choice, his career, and he’s going to do it his way. I’m along for the ride and not a worrier. It’s in Adam’s and the Universe’s hands not mine.

  345. Thanks for the video compliments, all. I am glad they are appreciated. I love doing it, so it’s not a problem. I enjoy sharing the wonderful experience that is AFL with others that can’t be there.

    Don’t worry about not posting the videos, Smeggs. I know you are busy too, and you do such a great job on the Adam threads. We appreciate you too, very much.

  346. In 20yrs from now when Adam becomes an iconic legend that album cover will be a classic!

    And this is one of the many reasons that makes him so exciting!!

  348. Adam’s sophomore album could be great or maybe even disappoint a little bit. But it doesn’t matter. No one will be done with him after his second album. And no matter what, I think his fans will be eagerly awaiting album #3.

    Good grief, if Adam’s second album is as successful as his first, man oh man! That’s pretty damn awesome. :)

  349. Raleigh poster – gorgeous. Love the shot on the right with lighting on half his face. Very theatrical.
