TIME FOR MIRACLES
So we’ve been saying for some time that Adam should perform “Time For Miracles” on his Asian tour. The song sold strongly in Asian markets and fans frequently asked for it. Well, he has finally granted them their heart’s desire! Just listen to the Hong Kong crowd singing along. “You are the miracle!” Indeed!! But Adam had another surprise in store, a cover of “Shout” by Tears for Fears. Check it out:
And here’s “Time for Miracles”

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Straits Times - Adam Lambert: My show promotes love, acceptance, positivity, joy “Last Saturday (March 2), The Straits Times reported that the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) had received a complaint from a Christian that “the gay lifestyle may be promoted at the concert, and that the concert venue is owned by a church”.”
Yahoo Entertainment! - ‘Idol’ star Adam Lambert on pre-show rituals: No, I don’t sacrifice baby goats ”Since the show will still be going on at the Vista, here’s a fact that may put more conservative Singaporeans at ease — Lambert’s pre-concert ritual is actually pretty tame.”Nothing too weird, I don’t sacrifice any baby goats,” laughed Lambert in response to Yahoo! Singapore’s question.” Watch VIDEO of the press conference here.
Tian Tian Xing Bao - Adam Lambert: The American Idol Conquered Fans with Superhuman Power Last Night. Translation by @hcluless ”Even after the concert ended; fans were still unwilling to leave. They kept screaming Adam’s name. As the most eyeballs grabbing contestant in American Idol history, Adam Lambert’s success can not be replicated. He might be the runner up but he possesses an infinite halo that not even a champion can easily acquire. One year after the competition he was nominated in the Best Male Pop Vocal category. Last night, his signature stage charisma conquered the audience from this oriental country. This night, the whole audience in Mercedes Benz arena fell at only one man’s feet.”
Popledge - Live Performance – Adam Lambert drops two new songs into his tour set-list! ”One of the covers was the 80′s classic “Shout” by Tears for Fears, it has the rallying chorus ‘shout, shout, let it all out, these are thing I could do without.’ When released in the UK it reached number 4 in the singles chart. The band also wrote ‘Mad World’ which Adam performed whilst on American Idol. He also performed his 2009 song ”Time For Miracles” which featured in the movie ’2012′. The song was played over the end credits and the official video features clips of disasters taken from the movie. This was a real treat for fans as he has never performed the track in a live setting before.“
申 Sen newspaper - Exclusive ADAM LAMBERT interview: Adam Lambert Is Not An Idol But A Hippie Translation into English thanks to @hcluless ”…You’ve got to be prepared to make sacrifice and compromise. Music career is a gamble and you need to be patient. As long as you have passion for music and audience, then your chosen path is the right one…”
Gather - Adam Lambert Endorses Chinese Video Game (Video) “An advertisement for a Chinese video game endorsement by Adam Lambert surfaced online Thursday (2/28) where he is endorsing the game “Rift: Planes of Telara.” In the ad, Adam creatively applies personal references to the game, such as “being ‘Cuckoo’ onstage,” “defeating all of the experts to be the ‘idol’ of America,” and “defeating the opponent to get on the Billboard charts.” He is even able to pull off speaking some Chinese, which is no small feat for someone that doesn’t speak the language.” Here’s the video:
Popledge - Adam Lambert talks to Asian press ahead of concert “The Asian magazine ‘My Paper’ spoke to Adam Lambert as he arrived in Singapore ahead of a ‘Glamily’ tour performance…In the interview he talks about American Idol and what fans can expect from his live shows…”
