VOODOO CHILD

Adam at Venetian PublicityHow miraculous to see Adam back where he belongs, strutting in front of an enthusiastic throng of live bodies during his current run at The Venetian in Las Vegas. We couldn’t join the in-person revelry but loved the vicarious thrill as friends shared videos and social media posts. After the long, pandemic drought, it must have been like plunging into the cool waters of an oasis. Or, since this is Adam F Lambert, a smoldering cauldron of spicy fun, with a little green absinthe of love’s bitter disappointments drizzled in.

The show opens with sexy Halloween-themed For Your Entertainment and Evil in the Night, followed by two all-time favorite covers, Ring of Fire and Marry the Night (I believe the first time he’s done this now-legendary Glee performance live). Staying with the Halloween theme, the mood shifts through Voodoo, Ready to Run, to the desolate Ghost Town. Adam then twists his vocal coils around us as only he can with sexy-angsty Running (wolves!), Chokehold, Sleepwalker, Mad World, and Can’t Let You Go. Just when he’s wrung every tear out of our eyes, he is back on the troubled romance market with After Hours, Roses, Love Don’t, On the Moon, and of course Whataya Want From Me. And what the public wants from Adam is some Queen, and so he gives us Stone Cold Crazy, Dragon Attack, and Another One Bites the Dust. (Not my personal Queen favorites; I wonder what goes into the calculus of determining which Queen songs he can perform…). The show ends, fittingly, with Adam reclaiming his own voice with Superpower and Overglow.  

One could say that Adam has pulled off a little voodoo with his career! The magnetic pull of his voice and charisma are still very much alive. I thought these lyrics from Jimi Hendrix’s Voodoo Child were fitting:

Say, I make love to you in your sleep,
And lord knows you felt no pain
‘Cause I’m a million miles away
And at the same time I’m right
Here in your picture frame
‘Cause I’m a voodoo child
Lord knows, I’m a voodoo child
Well my arrows are made of desire
From far away as Jupiter’s sulfur mines…

Proud of Adam

July 18, 2021

Have I told you how proud we should all be about the Hero of Our Magnificent Obsession? I think it occurred to me when the Obamas invited Adam to participate in their video project, We the People. Curating an event to mark the Stonewall riots, the seminal event of the gay revolution, he brought attention to its historical importance. He has become a true leader of the queer (as he says) community, ensuring that LGBTQ entertainers are welcomed and appreciated by everyone. And he has influenced his own fans to embrace the full panoply of entertainers and entertainment.  

Adam so believes in this cause that he established the Feel Something Foundation, raising money to be directed where it is most needed. Although some activists demanded he take the mantle of Gay Icon and leadership upon setting foot on the solo stage 12 years ago, ultimately this role came to him organically, unfolding like a butterfly emerging from his cocoon.  

He is truly multi-talented – lead singer of one of the greatest bands ever to take the stage, lofting them to new heights of popularity and success. The best cover singer of a generation; he’s on-call for tributes to some of the greatest singers and entertainers of our time: David Bowie, Cher, whom he moved to tears, George Michael, Little Big Town, Lady Gaga, Avicii, Rihanna, T-Rex, Bob Marley, and of course, all of his Idol performances. 

How many times has he appeared on magazine covers this year? How many radio and TV interviews promoting a show, a cause, a project? Style and fashion icon – a favourite for magazine spreads. He maintains his position of sexiest person alive – turning everyone he meets into a wannabe gay boy. He’s writing a live theatrical production! Charming, witty and affable, our dear Adam is a popular judge for just about any musical or Drag competition TV show – on a few continents. And more television from Glee to Rocky Horror to Moonbase 8, combining acting and singing.  

Let’s not forget, this is all world-wide and on top of a solo recording and performing career. He disappears for a few days and then he pops up on a project like the Ratatouille fundraiser or the Obama’s We the People, or Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical, Cinderella – all the while looking healthy, groomed and gorgeous. Any wonder we still love him madly?  

We know of a secret, musical biography in process. Can the West End or Broadway be far behind? Would we not all fly, drive, sail, swim, or surf to stand in ovation, passing our hankies to dab tears of joy, and toss flowers (rather than knickers) at his feet?  

Let us, however immodestly, take a moment to bathe in pride over Adam’s accomplishments – surely with more to come!

Adam Lambert’s 2021 Birthday

January 30, 2021

By Juneau. On Twitter @JuneauXena & @AdamLambertBook.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM!

He gave us the best gift ever — two live-streamed concerts that took us all down a sparkly voyage down memory lane. During the 75-minute set, Adam showcased songs from every era, including fan favorites like “Runnin'” and the superb, demo version of “Original High.” Highlight for us was “Loaded Smile,” which he has performed live only once before, in Vancouver, if memory serves. Make sure you made a donation to Adam’s FeelSomething Foundation in honor of his birthday!

Adam Lambert 2020 year-end roundup

December 29, 2020

By Juneau. On Twitter @JuneauXena & @AdamLambertBook.

Dearest Readers,

This has been a year like no other in recent memory, and we are beyond grateful for the virtual companionship and Adamizing that has kept our community’s spirits up through some dark and difficult times. Here at the Salon On the Meaning of Adam Lambert, we took a break to work on some other projects and conserve our energies. Apologies for the long absence. This blog post marks some of the high points from our hiatus and will be the last for some time…probably until Adam starts touring again. But we won’t be idle. We’ll be using this time to reflect and write about the ways in which Adam continues to affect and inspire us. We look forward to reuniting with you at a future concert or get-together. Stay healthy and strong. Keep shining Adam’s love and light upon a world that needs it more than ever.

xoxo J Read more…
