One of the most important bands in world music history, Queen, announce additional Brazil shows in São Paulo and Porto Alegre fronted by legend-in-the-making Adam Lambert.
…Adam Lambert’s stunning performances on the eighth season of American Idol are still widely regarded as some of the most riveting moments in the show’s history. His debut album For Your Entertainment earned him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. His second album, Trespassing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. The subsequent tour took Lambert from Australia to South Africa, throughout Asia and Eastern Europe and culminated in a sold-out arena show in Helsinki, Finland. In 2013, Adam appeared as a guest star on the hit TV series, GLEE. Adam has just completed a brand new album, writing and working with the production team of Shellback and Max Martin (Max is responsible for 19 #1 US hits, and Billboard’s “Producer of the Year”). The first single, “Ghost Town” is released April 20, and the album “The Original High” follows this summer.
Further Latin America dates are expected to be announced.

COVER BOY (AGAIN!)
Entertainment Focus – Adam Lambert is the cover star for the new issue of Notion “Talking about The Original High, Adam reveals, “[The album is] dance-y but bittersweet, and the lyrics are a little darker [than they have been, previously]. I’ve done the more bubblegum stuff, I’ve done the camp stuff, and now I want to encourage people to face their shit. I want to show them the part of me that’s not all polished or [still part of] the ‘pageant on TV’ thing – I want it to be real, you know?””
Billboard – Adam Lambert ‘Was Flying Blind’ When He Came Out: See His ‘Notion’ Magazine Cover “The pop singer is nothing if not self-aware, telling the magazine there are “certain ways in which I triumphed and certain ways in which I stumbled a little bit. Unfortunately, people were watching while I was learning.””
GEARING UP FOR ERA 3!!
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Yahoo Music -The Dream of the ‘90s Is Alive in Adam Lambert’s ‘Ghost Town’ – by Lindsey Parker of course! “I have heard the future of pop. It sounds a bit like ’90s pop. It also sounds amazing. It is “Ghost Town,” the forthcoming single by Adam Lambert, and true to its title, it is hauntingly catchy…It’s a natural progression for the ever-evolving, decade- and genre-straddling artist, of course — but ironically, despite “Ghost Town’s” throwback house vibe, it’s the most modern-sounding thing Adam has ever recorded.”
Digital Spy – Adam Lambert’s new single ‘Ghost Town’ first listen review: Compelling “What’s more, as the song progresses each verse and chorus has another layer added, meaning Adam’s soul-search intensifies as it reaches its conclusion. It gets to a glorious middle eight that delivers an epic blow as the vocal reverb is ramped for full effect and Lambert growls: “Don’t give a f**k if I go down.”
Sugarscape – SINGLE REVIEW: ADAM LAMBERT – ‘GHOST TOWN’ “Sort of like loads of stuff out there right now and nothing out there right now at the same time. Basically Ghost Town‘s massively influenced by proper European pop and the club scene, and while there’s a massive house beat running through it it’s still packed with personality and that charisma Adam always brings to his stuff.
If we had to compare it to anything, we’d say it’s like Avicii but even more batsh*t bonkers. A darker David Guetta. Martin Garrix gone MOODY. It’s probably worth pointing out that this ain’t just a faceless, generic dance track though. The lyrics are actually pretty heartbreaking under that hard house-y thump.”
PressParty – Journalist teases details about Adam Lambert’s new music “British website Popjustice tweeted earlier today about the reviews ‘Ghost Town’ has received so far, flagging up descriptions of the song as being “compelling” and “dark and moody”.However, Popjustice – which is run by journalist and editor Peter Robinson – went on to say: “…if you think the single sounds good wait until you hear some of his other new songs.””
