Chronicle Live – Queen and Adam Lambert kick off UK tour at Metro Radio Arena Newcastle “Queen and Adam Lambert kick off their UK tour next week at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on January 13. It follows a sold-out world tour last year taking in North America, Australia, New Zealand and outdoor festival stops in Korea and Japan…Roger Taylor continues: “Each time we’ve worked with Adam with our music, he’s just the most incredible front man. He’s sensational. He has this amazing range, Freddie had a great range. Adam can really cover it.””

“Three new UK arena shows were added to the 2015 European tour, and these include Wembley SSE Arena on Tuesday 24 February 2015, Liverpool Echo Arena Thursday 26 February and Sheffield Motorpoint Arena on Friday 27 February 2015.” From OSM.

CarterMatt – “After starting off this week with auditions in Nashville along with some highlights from the bus tour, “American Idol XIV” is going to be taking off to the Big Apple on Wednesday night. The New York City auditions are upon us! This means that we’re going to have a chance to see a variety of new contestants, and hopefully some in the process who really can perform. Let’s hope that they are all bringing their A-game, since they have a special guest judge awaiting them in Adam Lambert. Keith Urban missed this city due to the passing of his wife Nicole Kidman’s father, so the season 8 star filled in. While the promo below (via Mjsbigblog) does not give away a whole lot, we’ve seen enough of Adam on this show over the years to know that he will be a more than fine judge. He’s smart, musically knowledgeable, and more than anything, he understands that it takes more than just a killer voice to make a star. You also have to have personality, an ability to channel emotional, and a presence on stage.”

ADAM WEIGHS IN ON CONTROVERSIAL SIA VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-01-10 at 8.45.48 AM

Here’s Sia’s new music video of her song “Elastic Heart.”
Is it just an odd confluence that the words “Another one bites the dust” is so prominent in the lyrics…? What do you think of the video and Sia? (She’s one of Juneau’s favorite artists…thanks to Adam for introducing her to his fandom!)

People Magazine – Sia Apologizes for ‘Elastic Heart’ Video Controversy “The clip finds Shia LaBeouf andDance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler dancing half-dressed in a bird cage. Detractors deemed the piece inappropriate, criticizing the clip for its sexual undertones – namely the physical contact between LaBeouf, 28, and 12-year-old Ziegler – that some believe edged on pedophilia…Popular music site Consequence of Sound’s Michelle Geslani defended the clip, writing: “Interpretive dance is just that – interpretive. Also, as we’ve come to learn more about Sia and the kind of artist she is, I think it’s safe to say that the art which she puts forth always has a deeper meaning. Skin doesn’t always = Sex. Touching doesn’t always = Lust. Dancing doesn’t always indicate something carnal.””

NME – Brian May: ‘Adam Lambert is a gift from God’ “”Adam is the first person we’ve encountered who can do all the Queen catalogue without blinking,” said May. “He is a gift from God.” His bandmate, drummer Roger Taylor, added: “He’s incredibly musical, and we certainly take anything he says quite seriously.” Lambert, however, is less eager to compare himself to Mercury. “There’s never going to be another, and I’m not replacing him,” he said. “That’s not what I’m doing. I’m trying to keep the memory alive, and remind people how amazing he was, without imitating him. I’m trying to share with the audience how much he inspired me.””

Idolator – Readers’ Poll Results: The Most Anticipated Albums Of 2015, As Chosen By Your Votes “The Trespassing King beat out the competition with 3,589 votes, followed closely by the “Work Bitch” Las Vegas showgirl Britney Spears with 3,229 votes and RiRi with 531 votes.  Madonna’s Rebel Heart (434 votes) and Honeymoon darling Lana Del Rey (214 votes) rounded out the Top 5. Guess your Glamberts are really, really ready for you to bring it, Adam! Check out the full breakdown of the votes after the jump.”

Entertainment Focus – Adam Lambert leads EF Poll of the Year 2014 results “The results are now in and we can reveal that singer and actor Adam Lambert leads the winners topping four categories – Favourite Singer, Favourite Band (with Queen), Favourite TV Actor and Sexiest Man – whilst The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence picked up Favourite Film Actress and Sexiest Woman.”

Forbes – Top-Earning American Idols 2014 “Other notable names on the list include Scotty McCreery—who finished in a fourth-place tie with Hicks on the strength of his third album, See You Tonight, which sold a quarter-million copies—and Adam Lambert, who landed at No. 7 with $2.5 million. After touring as the frontman of Queen, the latter is set for a much higher payday on next year’s list.”

Classic Rock – Judas Priest main man hopes Crue return after Final Tour and says he is a fan of Adam Lambert’s work with Queen “It’s just great to see the guys out on the road. They don’t need to go out. They’ve got all the gold and platinum albums. But what they’re doing is a sincere display of their love of their music. So I wish them all the best.” This came out in July but we missed it somehow. Better late than never…

Boston Globe – Why does rock and roll hate disco? DAVID BOWIE, Madonna, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck are all members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The man who helped create some of their biggest hits is not. This year when Bill Withers, Green Day, and the late Lou Reed, among others, are inducted into rock’s hallowed hall, musician-producer Nile Rodgers will again be left waiting at the door. For the ninth time, Chic, the 1970s group he cofounded with the late Bernard Edwards, has been deemed unworthy of a place among pop music’s elite…”

    Love the clever last line of Telegraph’s editorial note beside the article about AL. “Astrophysicist May knows a star when he sees one.”
