Xena sent in this photo with this note: “These 10 year old twins sat next to me – they are huge Adam fans, as are their lovely parents. Later, [my husband] and I gave them our “Adam” pins which were made by one of the Canadiadams who gave them out at lunch. They were thrilled.”

LA Times Ministry of Gossip – Adam Lambert’s half-shaved head — and a peek at him putting on his guyliner
EW, Michael Slezak: Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation Tour in NYC: Fans show a whole lotta love “If there’s any truth to the stereotype that gay men throw the best parties, Adam’s Glam Nation soiree is Exhibit A. And as a misfit toy himself — an artist whose Euro-Goth brand of vocal adrenaline and openness about his sexual orientation make his radio aspirations a protracted uphill battle — Adam’s fills his concert with a winking, conspiratorial giddiness that makes his fans feel like he’s singing directly to them.”
New York Times, Jon Pareles – Under All the Glitter, a Message: Be Yourself “…in a final “Whole Lotta Love” he relaxed and showed some unforced swagger while his vocals headed skyward. There’s a big-voiced showman in Mr. Lambert, ready to surface when he worries less about pleasing everyone or hitting his marks.”
MTV – Adam Lambert Whips Up Frenzy On Glam Nation Tour “Lambert aimed for spectacle with video screens, backup dancers and extravagant costumes and makeup. But as cool as the lasers were, all the bells and whistles were no match for the glam-pop star’s vocal fireworks, which were in top-notch condition on his Tuesday and Wednesday dates. His pitch-perfect pipes proved to be the real star of the show.”
Journal & Courier Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation Tour looks at love “Act two concludes with the most moving number in the show, “Aftermath.” A rock power ballad as recorded for the disc and written by Lambert with his friends Alisan Porter and Ferras, this rendition is intimately acoustic, with Lambert sitting on the stairs accompanied only by master guitarist Monte Pittman…The crowd sings along, but cannot possibly match Lambert’s soaring tenor vocals. ‘ Incredible in its transcendent simplicity, it sets the scene for act three, about the redemptive empowerment of unselfish love.”
Huffington Post – Adam Lambert Ushers in the Era of ‘Papa GaGa’ in NYC “In a nice touch, Lambert ended the night by merging “World” into a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” It was a fitting way to end the night since the crowd, a hybrid of parents, teens, and 30-somethings like me, there was plenty of love going around.”
Backstage – Rescuing Voices: Adam Lambert’s voice teacher tells how he keeps singers in shape while on tour. “He explains his approach with Adam Lambert’s tour: “Adam can do extreme things with his voice that most singers will probably never be able to do, but he can’t do it endlessly.” Stroud started by going through Lambert’s set list. “Adam’s tour right now is around 14 songs, of which three are at 11 on the intensity scale,” he says. “Going all out on those songs, it makes it more difficult to pull off the subsequent songs. The fact is Adam is so amazing that he doesn’t have to overdo it. I work with the music director to look at the peaks, where they happen in the show, and where he can recover from that.”
MamaKath’s Blog – A sparkly gypsy with a heart of gold “I like to know a little more about the people making that music. It allows me the ability to enjoy the music on a deeper level because all art comes from the heart. It also increases my level of respect for the artist where I can appreciate their personality which in turns reveals whether they are truly an artist or just a manufactured good. For me, this one is the real deal.”
NY Post - Adam wins a glammy in NY “In leather, sparkle makeup and his signature half-shaved-head hairdo, the singer wowed with his multi-octave pipes, confident stage presence — more slither than swagger — and old-fashioned, campy showmanship.”
Rickey.org – Adam Lambert – Glam Nation Tour in New York “I was very excited to see this show for a couple of days now. Needless to say, Adam Lambert did not disappoint with his vocals. It was pretty much out of this world from where I was standing. If you are an Adam Lambert fan, this is the show to watch and you must get your tickets now. It will be worth it.”
MTV -Rabid Adam Lambert Fans Line Up 24 Hours Before New York Show: For Lambert, ‘I’d sleep on the sidewalk again,’ one fan says. Jim Cantiello reports: “…many traveled thousands of miles to see their favorite artist rock New York City. Fans from Denmark, Venezuela, England, Japan and Singapore mingled with Georgia peaches, Connecticut natives and Californians, making Adam’s Glam Nation a truly international affair.” Great Video.
Reality Rocks – Adam Lambert Phones In From The Road: The Glam Nation Press Conference Audio of the 45-minute press conference is available here! Those “glammerpants” were a Tokyo shopping find, not an intentional reference to MC Hammer.
Toronto Sun – Glambert strutts stuff for T.O. “Like a peacock showing off his feathers, Lambert strutted his considerable stuff over the course of a brisk, hour-long set backed by a four-piece band…”
Examiner – ‘American Idol’: Adam Lambert talks international tour, ‘Can’t Let You Go’ These are the highlights from the Adam Lambert conference call earlier Friday.
Examiner – Interview: Adam Lambert talks MMVAs, encores, and live albums Matt Carter interviews Adam Lambert. Q: “How do you choose your Glam Nation encore? … [A]: We kind of just decide in the moment. We usually just go onstage and look at the band and say ‘what do you think’? (Laughs.) Although it might start becoming more and more of routine where we do both ['Mad World' and 'Whole Lotta Love'].”
Hartford Courant - Adam Lambert At MGM Grand Thursday
This was posted over a year ago, but remains one of my all-time favorite articles about Adam: BlogCritics – American Idol‘s Adam Lambert: Balls of Steel! “How do I tell my friends that I blew off the first half of my hometown Cleveland Cavaliers playing in the playoffs to watch a glammed out, proudly homosexual cabaret singer lay waste to our best memories of Robert Plant and Elvis Presley?”
