Adam Lambert holds onto top Idol airplay spot “Adam also moves onto USA TODAY’s Top 40 chart this week, as If I Had You breaks in at No. 36.”
‘American Idol’: Adam Lambert’s ‘If I Had You’ rises to #10 on VH1 chart
“After debuting last week at #20, Adam’s “If I Had You” is now sitting at #10. Although some of the voting for the video could be attributed to casual fans enjoying the song after a few listens, we really have to attribute the majority of the success to the diehard supporters who have been voting daily and as many times as humanly possible.”
Adam’s IIHY has reached #1 in Canada!!
Tweet from Hatshepsutely IIHY # 4 on Z100 noon countdown!
Gather – Adam Lambert and The Glam Side Of Rock “Adam Lambert is a name that strikes fear in the hearts of boring people everywhere.” Touché!!
The Daily Times – ‘Idol’ runner-up enjoying a colorful career as musician, showman “Love him or hate him, Lambert’s making his mark. Whether with his music or life in general, he’s taken the proverbial bull by the horns and doesn’t plan on letting go anytime soon.”
Associated Content – Adam Lambert, The Alpha Male “Adam Lambert is arguably the sexiest man in the entertainment industry today. Just one short article written by Allegra Huston in June of last year titled “What Is It About Adam Lambert?” generated 24,398 posts by women confirming their feeling of attraction to this stunningly gorgeous and talented young man. This number is not for views but for post, which is practically unheard of. The phenomenon spawned the book “On the Meaning of Adam Lambert” written by Juneau & Xena….”
Washington Blade – Adam Lambert raises the roof “The sold-out performance was packed with a diverse audience ranging from gay men, lesbians, punk rockers, pre-teens and soccer moms. It’s amazing that Lambert fans — sometimes referred to as “Glamberts” — make up so many different types of people.”
MIX 107.3 interview “Your fans are the coolest I’ve ever met…” What songs are about: “Things that I went through with intimacy, and things where I could help people, about empowerment.” Talks about how costumes were designed. Nipple piercing “more fun to keep everyone wondering.”
KC101 interview at Foxwoods – Posted by Adam Lambert Glamfans. Excellent interview! Adam says he will start working on his new album this fall, for a 2011 release.
New blog post: Adam Lambert Interview-Mix 106.5 With Jojo And Reagan – Posted by Adam Lambert the Official Unofficial Site. Talks about liking to sing to individuals in the audience, making it more personal. Had a sinus infection the first night in NYC.
Washington Post pop music blog – In Concert: Adam Lambert at 9:30 club “Awkward couplets like these, of course, are part of what make Lambert the weirdest (read: greatest) of all the “American Idol” alums. Sure, he’s openly gay and incredibly fabulous, but his charm lies in the fact that he’s a swaggering hair metal howler trapped in the body of a pop newbie who still doesn’t sound completely sure of himself. Onstage, the 28-year-old belted almost every note as if blessed-slash-cursed with a superpower he’s still learning to control.”
The Atlantic City Weekly – The Man In Black: Adam Lambert brings his Glam Nation tour to Borgata “He strutted across the stage with a delightful swagger that seemed half Mick Jagger, half Elvis, as he energized his wide range of fans, from pre-teens to seniors”
The Press of Atlantic City – Adam Lambert brings glam-rock show to Borgata “Lambert’s range was on full display in ballads like “Soaked,” and he threw in a few acoustic versions of songs for good measure. Fun pop stylings like “Music Again” — a campy dance number reminiscent of another over-the-top band, The Darkness — kept the show moving at a good pace.”
Cheeky Chicago – An Interview with Adam Lambert – talks about working with Max Martin, changing the key on some of the songs for the tour to preserve his voice.
The Gray Lady blows it: NYT Corrects Jon Pareles’ Account Of Adam Lambert And His Bass Player’s Kiss. “They Licked Each Other’s Lips,” NYT Says. – seriously, foks…
Review: Lambert glams up MGM Grand at Foxwoods – Norwich, CT – Norwich Bulletin “Lambert brought his Glam Nation Tour to a sold-out MGM Grand at Foxwoods, complete with two opening acts and a whole lot of sexy glam, proving he’s not just a singer who can dance, but a performer who entertains.”
Providence Journal – Concert review: Adam Lambert combines guts, glam at Foxwoods “The highlight might have been the mini-set in the middle, with “Whataya Want From Me” played with a mostly acoustic band; “Soaked” performed with Lambert and piano and “Aftermath” with only Lambert and acoustic guitar. “Soaked” was particularly effective this way, with Lambert’s voice particularly glistening in the rough setting.”
Masslive.com review – Concert review: Adam Lambert at Foxwoods
This reviewer hit wide of the mark on a few things (and missed out entirely on the Whole Lotta Love encore.. did he pass out?).
TheDay.com Connecticut Foxwoods review- Adam Lambert wows at the Grand
“…the glam guy’s got momentum back on his side. His follow-up singles have done well, and, lo and behold, his fresh solo tour – which played MGM Grand at Foxwoods on Thursday – resurrects the over-the-top but totally fun Lambert that “Idol” audiences embraced.”
Associated Content – Adam Lambert Makes Sure that Glam Nation Tour Bends to Fit the Audience “In a recent show Adam Lambert performed at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods and he brought all the Broadway pomp and melodrama with him as he hit that big stage. Adam performed for just over an hour and every minute of this performance was magical and staged to entertain.”
