Here’s where you can apply for tickets to be in the audience.
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Playback – Adam Lambert | Trespassing (Sony) “The press release arrived in my inbox, same as hundreds of others. It contained a link to a stream of the new Adam Lambert CD, Trespassing. I am not a reality TV fan; I had never so much as heard Adam Lambert before. (To say I’m a bit of a music snob—or was, anyway—wouldn’t be far off the mark.) On a lark, I decided to click it; I just wanted to see what he sounded like. I didn’t expect to fall in love…This goes far, far beyond guilty pleasure. In fact, Trespassing dominates my most-played list on Spotify…fellow music snobs: Go ahead. Give in. You have permission to hold your head up proudly while you give in to the oh-so-perfect Adam Lambert groove. A+ | Laura Hamlett”
USA Today – Adam Lambert readies for Queen gig “When he auditioned for an American production of the Queen jukebox musical We Will Rock You, Adam says, “I prepared songs like I Want To Break Free; I did my homework. Now I’m looking forward to spending time with (bandmembers) Brian (May) and Roger (Taylor). I want to make myself familiar with their more obscure songs and hear some stories from the guys themselves. I’ll get my own personal Queen documentary”” New Factoid Alert! We had never heard before that Adam had once auditioned for “We Will Rock You.”
Lambosessed – 96.5 TIC Spring Fling (Review) “Adam tries to get crowd singing his riffs, but ends up taking the piss. As if a normal person could hit those notes. I assume this is to get the sound and echo right for Broken English. I’ve run out of ways to describe Adam’s voice but here it’s bluesy and just phenomenal.
