PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Sydney Morning Herald – Adam Lambert: a faint whiff of hangover “…The band is as clinical and efficient as you’d expect from four session musicians and two singer-dancers backing a pop star successful enough to afford some talent, even if Lambert’s crediting his musical director as being “on keys and laptops” is, while honest, a little wince-inducing.
But then you get the feeling Lambert’s openness is a big part of what makes him so popular. It’s perhaps why his adoring audience feel they know him well enough to sweetly sing Happy Birthday to him, unprompted, for the previous day. And also perhaps why they’ll forgive the faint whiff of hangover attached to a good pop show that could have been even better.”
PressParty – Adam Lambert beats David Beckham and Ryan Gosling as sexiest man “Adam Lambert has been placed at No.31 on Glamour magazine’s list of the 100 sexiest men in the world…The US star was one of the higher placed musicians on the list.”
Thomas Bleach – LIVE REVIEW: ADAM LAMBERT – ENMORE THEATRE “This was the ultimate pop show; professional, fun, interactive, heaps of visuals, dancing and just a lot of talent on one stage.”
AU – Live Review: Adam Lambert + Melanie Martinez – Palais Theatre, Melbourne (26.01.16) “It takes a talented musician to sing, dance and entertain for two straight hours without a break. It’s often been said that there’s no legends in music of this generation, artists come and go so quickly that it’s sometimes hard to keep up on who is the next “big” thing, but judging by the sheer amount of talent that Lambert has, it’s hard to see a future in music where he is not a part of.”
92.9 – Adam Lambert World Famous Rooftop action! “Lambert wasn’t coming to Perth on his Australian tour so hit92.9 flew him over for an up close and intimate gig with some of his biggest fans. Over 350 listeners scored tickets to come along and hear Lambert belt out some of his biggest hits including The Original High and Ghost Town.”
Sydney News Local – Adam Lambert brings high octane energy and a fast-paced concert to the Enmore Theatre “By the time Lambert stopped for the Tears for Fears cover Mad World, it was a relief to be off the rollercoaster for a few minutes and listen to his voice with minimum accompaniment. Beautifully sung, this was Lambert at his soulful best and the audience loved it. His new ballad, There I Said It, sung almost entirely in the top vocal register, displayed wonderful angst deserving of the lyrics about truth and lies in a relationship.”
Socialite Life – Just Because: Adam Lambert Was About The Drama As He Hit The Stage In Sydney (PHOTOS) “The werkingest (new word I made up) gentleman in the land took to the stage in Sydney, Australia today as part of the down under leg of his The Original High tour. I’ve tried to hold off on looking at too many photos of this tour–mostly because I want to be surprised when he gets to LA–but oh my god you guys, it looks good.”
Nova 96.9 – Adam Lambert gave us what we wanted at his Sydney show “The venue, the iconic Enmore Theatre, was filled to the brim with the crowd in the standing-only area spilling out into the carpeted corridors.”
Hit 92.9 – Backstage Goss with Adam Lambert. He drops some truth bombs! (VIDEO). Interesting that Warner didn’t let him pick his band. Thinks his “Music soothes..” tattoo is a bit pretentious. “I was a little pretentious back then.” But he’s not Normcore (thank goodness!).
ADAM LAMBERT – THE ORIGINAL HIGH TOUR “…To return to Adam’s frequent comment that anyone can relate to his songs and find themselves in them – so not true for me. I cannot separate Adam from his songs enough to immerse myself into them and appropriate them emotionally, in a way I always can with other artists. I can listen to a song about a broken relationship and not think about the artist behind it at all. With any other artist but Adam, that is. It has never happened to me with his song. When I listen to his songs, or watch him perform, he is all I can think about – it is an overwhelming tectonic mass of thoughts about how he sang it, why he wrote it, how he felt, what he wore, what happened to him, he, he, he… His presence is just too powerful to be set aside – it is virtually impossible…”
EW – Annaleigh Ashford joins Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show – “There’s a Tony winner over at the Frankenstein Place.
